The state of Arkansas to pardon Keith Richards, after 31 years? Doesn’t he have drugs in his system older than that.
Oh the irony. Hey Mr. Kangaroo if you were to pick a place were you might get some sympathy for your flight. Since you have been locked up like a prisoner, and shipped to a far away land. You are doing it in a place that the people would understand Mr. Kangaroo.
Not fast enough. I want a flat screen for a nickel damn it.
I love London, but I do not think I would want to be there when it is around 100. When you look at Thames, and think it does not look too bad. Then it is way too hot. I can only shutter to think of the stank coming from the Underground.
Hey kids your tax dollars at work. If I only knew I could get me an I-pod, some computers and other goodies. I would have taken a government job awhile ago. It is good to see that when there are those who are in dire need, that there are those out there who are working hard. Hard to cheat and stealing
Here are my favs out of this:
- More than 2,000 sets of dog booties, costing $68,442, that have sat unused in storage since emergency responders decided they were not suited for canines assisting in Gulf Coast recovery efforts.
- Three portable shower units for $71,170 from a contractor who investigators said over-charged the government. Customs and Border Protection agents could have gotten similar showers for nearly a third of the price, and faster.
- 12 Apple iPod Nanos and 42 iPod Shuffles, worth $7,000, for
Secret Service “training and data storage.” Because the Shuffles cost less than $300, the Secret Service said they were not required to track them to ensure they were used properly.
- 37 black Helly Hansen designer rain jackets, costing nearly $2,500, for use in a firing range that the Customs and Border Protection purchaser later acknowledged shuts down when it’s raining.
- Conference and hotel rooms at a golf and tennis resort at St. Simons Island in Georgia, worth $2,395, for training 32 newly hired attorneys when they could have used a nearby federal law enforcement training center.
- A beer brewing kit and ingredients for more than $1,000 for a Coast Guard official to brew alcohol while on duty as a social organizer for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. “The estimated price for a six-pack of USCG beer was $12,” the investigators noted, adding: “Given that the six-pack cost of most beers is far less than $12, it is difficult to demonstrate that the Academy is achieving cost savings by brewing its own beer.”
- Investigators also noted that Customs and Border Protection wasted up to $464,586 by buying meals-ready-to-eat over the Internet instead of contracting through the
Pentagon, as is standard procedure. And they found that the Federal Emergency Management Agency cannot locate 107 laptops, 22 printers and two GPS units worth $170,000. FEMA also cannot find 12 of 20 boats the agency bought for $208,000.
I should not be too harsh they had to brew their own beer. They could not find a case of Lucky Lager.
What is next the equipment guy is named director of scouting. What they hell is going on?Someone please take the Islanders out of their misery. I used to hate them with a passion, but now it is just sad.
Hey Barry maybe you take a cruise over to Alcatraz and visit Capone’s old cell, since the both of you may be busted for tax evasion. Sadly, this shows the IRS has a purpose. Hey I am never happy about paying taxes either, but it seems that is the only way people ever get caught.
Never mess with the “Man’s” money.
Note to Mr. Anderson, I know you were Barry’s connection ….er personaltrainerr. You know that if you go down for Barry, that “squat thrust” will have a new and painful meaning. Just wanted to let you know.
Maybe, just maybe this can throw Pat back into rehab. Because I need a revival of this site.
