    Wow, $75,000 for 24 bikes = $3215 per bike. Pretty nice for something they were going to donate to poor kids.

    This is a sentence that should NEVER be uttered by a government employee about a taxpayer funded event.

    Obama is doing a great job of overseeing the Executive Branch of government...

    We really need to start going after government officials for embezzlement.

    Actually I believe three people already got shit-canned (nearly impossible if you're a govie) and the head of the GAO tendered her own resignation.

    Yeah, these jerkoffs are always outraged. Every year I hear these people bitching about waste, but nothing changes.

    Oh. My. God. I'm speechless. I'm sure they only worked on that video on their own time, too. Never when they were on the clock.

    My fiance works for the county health department. She's flat out said that if everyone there put in a full day's work every day they could cut their staff in half and not lose any productivity. That's where the real waste is.

    $823,000 discovered in wasteful spending. $16 trillion more waiting to be discovered. The government needs one gigantic audit.

    Food that doesn't make you sick because the owner of the restaurant you're in wants to save money on refrigeration costs and decides that the expiration date is more of a guide line than a rule, apartments that are rented to families with children that don't have chipping lead paint because the slum lord owner doesn't want to buy a few cans of paint, stuff like that.

    Anti-capitalist commie bastards! We all know that Mr. Chow the owner of "Chow's Happy Food Place" would never serve expired food or cut up stray dogs and cats to make chop suey. Lead paint chips.....they are wonderful plain or dipped in salsa.

    Just to comment on the Govies and how much work they do.

    Another contract in my Operation had a guy who would leave a browser open most of the day with one of the news websites up, nothing big really when you think about it. He'd check the news every hour or so for 5-10 minutes per day. Well, one story he read just so happened to have some comments which caught the eye of the agencies web filters he does work for; this led to them monitoring his network drop for the remainder of the day. The government came back to us and told us that he had to charge 0 hours for that entire day because the we browser was open with a news site the entire day.

    You think they do that type of monitoring on government employee computers?
