It reminds me of a quote bush used.. "Its your money.. You paided for it!"

Things are so beyond the point of crazy here.. We are paying these guys to watch porn. Spending 1,400$ for trash cans.. Ect ect..
The list could go on and on..
I wonder how much of our money is used buying these guys escorts and prime rib dinners.. Sports cars, private jets!

While this doesnt shock me.. I'm numb to the amount of crooks we have elected as our leaders. Shameful...
