Still Feel Patriotic?
I always get a ton of criticism for helping people pay less in taxes. I am constantly being called unpatriotic by those who think that any attempt to send less money to our rulers in DC borders on treason. For those folks, just read this story and tell me how patriotic you feel by sending your hard earned money to DC.
The U.S. Customs Service is admitting to losing 2,251 computers between 1999 and 2001. This report comes just one day after the FBI said it had "misplaced" 317 laptop computers. Customs agents also lost 59 weapons, 613 badges and 572 government credentials
Will anything be done to better control assets bought with taxpayer money? Why should they? There's plenty of money from patriotic taxpayers to just keep buying more things to replace the ones that mysteriously disappear.
