What else does the gov do but spend money?

How many private contractors were involved with that party? My guess, very many.

Since when did the federal sector start catering or doing flower arrangements? That money went to regular Americans. People put in long hours and got paid.

To you that would be inexcusable? Stop hating.


yea, regular americans with government jobs. this is all part of obama's plan. barack wants to create more government jobs (which by the way are 4 times more expensive to create than a job in the prive sector), thus expanding government, and giving them (government) more control over your life.

so cleaning up afterwards was the bulk of the expenses for the inaugaration? didnt know the city would have to spend an extra (let's say) $50,000,000 on a cleanup crew. sounds like they got the shaft on that deal.


clean-up, security, and transportation accounts for almost all of the government money for both bush and obama's inaugurations. bush's was 115,000,000 for those expenses from the government (he took his out of FEMA) and the rest (that 42,000,000 figure) was donations. i haven't seen a break down of how much of obama's 150,000,000 was donation or gov money.

are you really oblivious to the fact that Bush expanded the government more than any president since WWII and almost every single job he created was government? he created an entire new department.

if anything obama will end up shrinking the overall size of the federal government from the bloated parade float that bush turned it into.

rodeo. whats funny about you, is you just make stuff up, and you expect people to believe you. in all honesty, you really have no clue as to what youre talking about, and thats a fact.

it probably sounds made up when you live in insulated republiworld and never actually hear what is wrong. but it's hard to make up the department of homeland security when there are so many folks who are employed by it.

I do believe venom has a logical fallacy in damn near every one of his posts. Got to be some sort of tinderbox record.

Oh well, his avatar makes up for it.
