I always wondered 'what' jobs Obama was talking about, then I thought, well they need that nafta super highway built. someone on ATS said that the
super highway was already built, I don't think so, I have not seen the 12 lane highways nor the train rails and pipeline. When it is finished believe
me they will have it all over the news media, and where do you think is getting these jobs, you guessed it...Mexico. Obama never said 'who' was
going to get the jobs did he.
Another thing that has 'ticked' me off was this 'abuse it or lose it' attitude that our government has. Let me explain.....let say I worked in
department XYZ of the government and department XYZ got a budget of let say 100.00 dollars for that quarter(3 months), this budget was to go and buy
supplies for the office. at the end of that quarter lets say you only spent 90.00 dollars. you think you saved uncle sam 10.00 dollars, right!!.
wrong, not only you lose that 10.00 dollars but you are decreased to say 75.00 dollars for the next quarter. This is an example that is easy for a
civilian to understand that i can make it.
But you got to also understand that these budgets that goes to these departments are HUGE, into the millions.
I've seen one guy that was in charge of a supply department spent 5000.00 dollars at one time on 'chem lights', not because the department needed
them but because if he did'nt, he would lose that 5000.00 dollars and maybe be reduced to a lower budget for next quarter.
If your husband/wife came home from work and you said 'I saved 50.00 out of that 100.00 dollars you gave me to pay the insurance', you would be
smiling wouldn't you. why don't the government have this kind of attitude and not penalize someone for trying to save them money.
WASTE! WASTE! WASTE!
I'm rattling again, starting to get off topic.
