On this Tax Day, here's a little reminder of where your hard-earned money has gone recently:
Several members of President Obama's Secret Service security detail partied up a storm in Cartegena, Colombia before he arrived, boozing it up and picking up some hookers. Since the Secret Service is paid for by the taxpayer and since the agents' salaries are paid for by the taxpayer, we can assume that we actually paid for the expensive whisky and the ladies of the night.
Workers at the General Services Administration (the GSA), responsible for "taking care" of the executive branch, have also been "taking care" of themselves. They have also partied up a storm recently, taking multiple jaunts to Vegas, Hawaii and Palm Springs, hiring clowns, mindreaders, and dining on only the best food and drink. No word on whether there were hookers involved. Yet.
A shrub recently had to be moved out of the way of a "stimulus" project (just getting underway 3 and a half years after the "stimulus" passed). We paid over $200,000 for somebody associated with some union to relocate the bush.
I bring you these nuggets of fiscal responsibility on Tax Day to remind you that our federal government is completely out of control and that it has ZERO respect for our money. More important, the feds have no respect for us, the taxpayers. After all, they need 'hos and trips to Sin City.
You might want to work a little harder.
