What's a Waste of Your Tax Dollars?

If there's one thing you can always count on from a Republican (or really any conservative and/or libertarian), it's that they'll complain about the gubmit wastin' their money.

Food stamps so children don't starve to death?
Waste of money.

Public schools so we can have an educated populace, the basis of all advances in recorded history?
Waste of money.

Medicare so that poor people can at least die in a hospital with some semblance of treatment rather than on the street?
Waste of money.

A bloated military budget that is more than the rest of the world spends on their respective militaries combined?
Quite necessary.

It's funny how that works, but nothing ever spent on giant mechanical dick-waving is ever a waste of money.

For example, the Navy spent $450,000 of your tax dollars to fly some jets over a closed dome at the Super Bowl.

Think about that -- you know of a school in your area that could use some current textbooks? What about the street outside your house riddled with potholes? How about any use of that money that actually does something?


But I've yet to hear all those crazy tea partiers carrying guns outside of Pentagon, telling them to stop wasting their money or they'll kill them all to "take are cuntry back."
