Just to clear things up about those $16 muffins

That you thought were costing too much for .GOV functionaries.

The source I heard on the radio said it was for a whole breakfast.
There now don't you feel better?


Why does the .GOV have to have it's taxpayer funded conferences at the HILTON hotel anywhere?
Don't we pay enough for lavish buildings for them to find unused space built and maintained by the taxpayer?
-Or are they too good for some public venue?

Overall, in 2008 and 2009, the Justice Department held or participated in 1,832 conferences at a cost of $121 million, the report said. The conferences examined by auditors, on topics from drug enforcement to violence against women, were held at elite hotels — including the Omni Shoreham and the J.W. Marriott in Washington and the Grand Hyatt in Denver — that added service fees of roughly 20 percent to the food costs.

  1. In the past, by the time the obfuscators and bureaucrats were through with the reporting, three election cycles passed and nobody paid much attention. With real-time reporting, they can now show us the arrogance immediately. Not that they're paying attention....yet.
