      Your Tax Dollars At Work...Again

      So apparantly, it's not enough for the government to take your money by force of law and then spend it on things controlled by bloated, expensive beauracracies. Now, they have to take your money and spend it on things controlled by bloated, expensive, beauracracies that accomplish absolutely nothing.

      For those of you who don't know, FEMA has a little road show. They've spent $22.6 million on what they call 'crisis counseling.' Apparantly, the slow hurricane season was so slow that they didn't have any better way to spend your money than activities to relieve that oh so horrible stress being felt by Florida due to the tropical depression that featured wind of up to *gasp* 25 miles/hour. FEMA is putting on puppet shows, 'hurrican bingo,' and sponsoring yoga classes on the beach, all with your money.

      It just never occurs to politicians any more where that money comes from, does it. These bits of horrendous waste were paid for by taking, by force of law, money from hardworking Americans who had bills to pay, a retirement to plan for, and children to take care of. There are a hundred really good ways the American people could have spent this money, but it was instead taken from them to spend on this cash toilet. I'm disgusted.

      It's out of control and has been for a long time. Nobody cares. Go figure.

      It's really time to take back our government. They waste SO much of our money. We need people in the government that will treat our tax dollars as if it's THEIR money, not just some huge piggy bank that can be looted at will for the most ridiculous of reasons.

      We need to elect a whole lot of regular Joe's and stop electing lawyers and corporate CEO's.
