    This is perhaps the most saddening one:
    The Office for Victims of Crime spent $32,000 on meetings instead of on VICTIMS OF CRIME. Nice. Who was it that said the government would collapse if there was a 10% flat tax? Gee, I Wonder why?

    This is why I'm against raising taxes. The money just goes to this bullshit. Show us you're responsible with money before coming with your hand out.

    DOJ and DOD will be the last two to curb their spending. They feel more entitled than anyone.

    Sounds like a good old fashioned tar and feathering is needed. Forthwith.

    So basically, somebody owns a cookie and muffin store got a contract to provide muffins to the DOD and DOJ. For a "political contribution" of course. AKA, BRIBE.

    Wait, you mean it doesn't normally cost $16 for a muffin and $10 for a cookie? Sorta gives "good enough for government work" a whole new meaning.

    You don't actually think they spend $20,000.00 on a hammer, $30,000.00 on a toilet seat do you?

    Hilarious. It is physically impossible not to read that line in his ultra-Jewy voice.
    You do if your cousin owns a hammer factory and the president of the toilet seat factory donated to your campaign.

    Taxpayers foot the bill for Justice Department’s $16 muffins

    $7 for beef wellington sounds like a good deal actually, and sounds yummy. I gotta get a better gig...

    I used to work banquets and can verify that deep pocketed customers like this would definitely have their bills"padded" because you put the automatic gratuity on the price of the total bill.

    Oh, so if you remove the 20% gratuity the cookies only really cost $8.33 each. Well that's totally reasonable! ;)

    You should check out the excuse makers in the comment thread for this story on Fark. Everything from "$16 isn't that much for a muffin" to "HURR DURR SARAH PALIN TEA PARTY RACIST BIGOT HOMOPHOBE BIRTHERS".

    I guarantee some idiot in Washington is justifying overpaying for standard services as helping the economy by pumping extra money into the private sector.
