I Knows Fishy When I Smells It!!!
Lookie here... it's an ordinary occurrence, our beloved gub'mint doing things like spending better than 43 MILLION DOLLARS to inform us that their census [the only kinda sensus I sense they possess...] will be mailed out soon. Yup-- millions wasted on a totally unnecessary precursor: sounds like Uncle Sammy's business as usual.
What's kinda got me boggled is the funny-- as in "somethin' smells funny in that there garbage pile" kinda way-- stuffs I'm garnering just from scrolling blog titles today and yesterday. Take, for instance, the one which asks the perfectly legitimate question "why does the Dept. of EDUCATION need sawed-off shotguns?" [Saw this yesterday, too, on another blog, but cannae remember which one currently...]
Or this one, clearly informing us that the USDA Plant and Animal inspectors will soon be working around the clock-- literally [not just their usual figuratively] in the dark. Else, why would they need NIGHT-VISION GOGGLES???
I'm sure I could search and find all kinds of other mayhemic spending from a government bleeding broke from every orifice they have, but I think I'd rather spend this rainy afternoon researching how to make my green beans glow in the dark, thus blinding any sneeky inspectors. Or maybe explaining to a home-schooled youngsta why guns are banned at public schools run by an armed over-seer.
Come to think of it, the green bean thingie has likely already been done-- funded, no doubt, by our beloved we-dun-run-outa-yer-dollars-so-we-needs-more-taxes puppetheads...
