If our daily drip of stupid FEDERAL spending decisions are truly, as described by most, ONLY A DROP IN THE BUCKET.....At what point do all those drops actucally add up to a 5 gallon bucket of Trillion Dollar Mistakes?
With Boondoggles (I like that word) like this, not long!
Feds to buy Thomson prison from Ill. for $165 million. But it will have to be converted to ..... something. Because they don't need another Jail. What the heck do you convert a prison into? The first ever grey bar hotel? The finiest in a secure overnight stay.
I don't know about you, but Ill. is making me ill. And the feds are not helping me feel better either!
Click on cell door 6 for the entire story!
So for future reference we will use $150 million as the monetary equalivant to a "drop". That is 1 drop for a useless empty jail facility!
If our bucket is 5 gallons, and it takes 378,541 drops to fill it...then how many buckets do we need to equal 17 trillion (I have to buy a calculator with more digit spaces in screen)
Thanks to Morning Rush Irregular Ray for the Federal Spending "drip" of the day!
