Pentagon exemplifies the awfulness of government
You want to know what's wrong with the federal government in a nutshell? Look no further than this example of sheer idiocy over at the mother of all bureaucracies.....
From Drudge -- The Pentagon was inundated with so many studies in 2010 that it commissioned a study to determined how much it cost to produce all those studies. Now the Government's Accounting Office has reviewed the Pentagon's study and concluded in a report this week that it's a flop.
Apparently Sec. Gates' desk was covered in study reports to the point that it got in the way of being SecDef. This is how needless bureaucrats justify their own jobs, either by regulating the rest of us to death or by studying something about which nobody was curious.
It is this kind if government waste that tempts me to cheat like hell on my taxes.
