Because the government wastes our money.

This is not a Dem or Repub thing... they all do it.

I get that it's a tradition that has been being done for ages, but that doesn't mean it's wise to do...

$40,000 for a portrait??? Take a damn picture, blow it up and frame it. It'll last just as long, and surely won't cost that much.

fuging disgusting...

It's their money to do it.

That's our money they are spending it on.

You have a choice if you want to support private excess.

You are smarter than this.

No, I'm in the "private industry acts just as moronic with money as the government when it gets big and bureaucratic enough" camp.

But let's all continue with our mindless "Private GOOD!!!! Government BAD!!!! Fire BURN!!!" rant. Nuanced approaches be damned.

It's absolutely insane that people are still OK with the way the government spends OUR dollars.

I could go on a rampage.

Im guessing that you voted against the taxpayers paying for a baseball stadium in Wilmington?

How about instead of going off the deep end with your liberal trolling, we just try to have some responsibility/accountability in gov't spending?
