Homeland Security spends $11,700 of tax payer money to buy sno-cone machines. How much did you pay in taxes this year? Was it $12,000? Would you have spent that sum on this? Of course not, and neither would the bureaucrat had this been his own money. But someone else’s money? What’s the big deal? And if you aren’t impressed with this paltry sum wasted just add zeros until you are – your loyal servants will spend that sum with equal abandon.
Remember Ryan Sandburg’s hearse horse that snickered when he hauled a lawyer’s bones away? Same feeling I get when I read about government workers being laid off.
