Ridiculous Ways the Government Wasted Your Money in 2013

“The cupboard is bare... There’s no more cuts to make.”

That’s what House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told CNN last year during an interview about spending reform. Really? She can’t find any spending to cut in the federal budget? Why can’t she start with the $30 billion in government waste identified in Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-Okla.) fourth edition of his annual “Wastebook?”

Here are 16 of the most expensive and bizarre federal waste items highlighted in the report: Cont’d. from Page 3 Coburn’s “Wastebook” identifies 100 examples of blatant waste totaling $30 billion that could be cut tomorrow, including defense and discretionary spending — areas in which both Republicans and Democrats were glad to reconsider projected 2014 sequester cuts when proposing their respective budget deals. Here are 20 of the most expensive and bizarre federal waste items highlighted in the report:

16. $53,000 for the Fort Hood mass murderer

Yup. Fort Hood Shooter Major Nidal Hasan continued to receive a federal salary, since the Military Code of Justice doesn’t allow a soldier to be suspended until they are found guilty. He made $53,000 in 2013 and a total of $278,000 since 2009, when he killed 13 and injured 32. The Army defended the payments, noting that they stopped once Hasan was convicted by a military jury finally rendered a guilty verdict last summer. “He is inno-

cent until proven guilty,” Army spokesman Troy Rolan said. That’s how sweet of a gig it is to work for the federal government. Federal employees’ job security is so great that workers in many agencies are more likely to die of natural causes than get laid off or fired, according to a USA Today study.


15. $150,000 for zombie protection (sort of)

This year, the National Science Foundation (NSF) paid an interactive media firm to create a “Web-based, action-adventure, narrative-based, role-playing game where the player defends against zombies in an effort to save the human race.” NSF awarded the game designer

$150,000 to craft the zombie experience. Even with enough money to buy thousands of textbooks, the grant designer will not be building a full game, but rather, three “mini-games.” Ironically, the same amount of funding could have paid the annual salaries of almost

14. Study concluding that wives should calm down for $335,500

If your wife is angry at you and you don’t want her to stay that way, you might want to avoid passing along the findings of this government study: Wives would find marriage more satisfying if they could calm down faster during arguments with their husbands, according to government-funded research. The researchers observed 82 married couples. “The marriages that were the happiest were the ones in which the wives were able to calm down quickly during marital conflict,” explained one researcher. “When couples encounter strongly negative emotional events (e.g., anger arising from disagreements, disappointments, and perceived betrayals) they often fall into primitive, survival-oriented mode of interaction,” the study says. “In these interactions, spouses repeatedly attempt to justify their own behavior; criticize the other spouse in a harsh, contemptuous ways; make broad, negative attributions; and engage in nonproductive cycles of demand-withdraw behaviors.” The National Institutes for Health (NIH) spent $335,500 to conduct the study. So remember fellas, the next time your wife is mad at you, tell her the NIH says to keep calm and carry on!

13. $385,000 to study duck penises

Yale University launched a project in 2005, with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), to study the oddities of

the duck penis. In 2009, the school received an additional $385,000 to continue its work. The grant will will expire in 2013. The key finding of the study was that he duck penis has a corkscrew-like shape. When asked by one news outlet why NSF decided to support an inquiry into the length of duck penises, a spokesperson responded, “Government funded grants for research have assisted in creating the barcode and Google.”

12. State Department pays $630,000 for Facebook “likes”

Hoping to increase its reach with an international audience, the state department spent $630,000 “buying fans” for its Facebook and Twitter accounts. The effort was undertaken by the department’s Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP), which is responsible for “sustained conversations with foreign audiences to build America’s reputation abroad.” The federal government actually pays people to like them, then pays people to post stuff for them hoping the people they pay to like them will like their stuff, then pays Facebook in tax refunds so the company will like them too. Does anyone else think the government looks like a desperate guy on a date at this point?

Does the gov’t. treat illegals better than veterans? By Robert Jonathan

In the shadow of this past Memorial Day, and against the backdrop of the rapidly growing Veterans Affairs hospital scandal, do illegal aliens get better treatment than U.S. military veterans? Sarah Palin seems to think so. On Wednesday, President Obama broke his silence on the Veterans Affairs scandal, vowing to hold the military hospitals that falsified records accountable but also claiming that VA problems are anomalies. The president’s remarks come as revelations have emerged in the media about long wait times for veterans seeking medical treatment, and vets who have died while waiting for doctor’s appointments at the military facilities. Originally the focus was on a Phoenix hospital, but some 26 VA facilities apparently have come under scrutiny for cooking the books with secret waiting times for vets who needed medical care. Given the number of vets returning home from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in particular, systemic problems with the VA date back before the Obama administration, of course. But contrary to recent assertions, it reportedly turns out that the president’s inner circle knew there were issues at the VA even before he took office. “The Obama

administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care” — problems that have turned into a growing scandal. Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting. According to one naval officer, Al Qaeda detainees at the Guantanamo Bay jail even receive better medical treatment than vets. Many other observers have pointed out that the VA is a precursor to what it would be like under government-run

healthcare for the civilian population of the country at large. But are illegals also getting better benefits than returning soldiers? Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, posted this contention on her Facebook page: “Compliance with these un-American acts in this Obama Era deserves the scorn of citizens; we will do all we can to oust those who follow the Obama/Pelosi/Reid lead on disgusting treatment of our military and red carpet treatment of their law-breaking chosen ones.” Palin linked her posting to a column by Michelle Malkin highlighting a litany of benefits costing millions of taxpayer dollars being afforded to illegal immigrants. Summarized Malkin:


Plasma saved my buddy’s life. That’s why I donate plasma. A product made from plasma helped my best friend when he was burned while deployed overseas. I donate plasma because I still need to beat him in basketball.

“A government that fails to secure its borders is guilty of dereliction of duty. A government that fails to care for our men and women on the frontlines is guilty of malpractice. A government that puts the needs of illegal aliens above U.S. veterans for political gain should be prosecuted for criminal neglect bordering on treason… America: medical and welfare welcome mat to the rest of the world, while leavings its best and bravest veterans to languish in hospital lounges, die waiting for appointments, and compete for jobs and educational opportunities against illegal border-crossers, document fakers, visa violators and deportation evaders. Shame on us.” In a prior posting, Palin wrote that “‘Government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost.’ Friends, that’s rationed care. That’s the VA today. That’s what’s got to change. That’s why Congress has got to change because until we elect leaders who’ll buck the march to socialized medicine known as Obamacare, America’s health care system will go the way of the VA. That’s why Obama’s Democrat party must be defeated in the ballot box in November. America is still the strongest nation on earth; outside forces won’t ruin us — we will only destroy ourselves if the status quo doesn’t go.” Palin took a lot of flak several years ago for suggesting that governmentimposed healthcare rationing by what she famously deemed death panels would be one likely outcome of Obamacare, a.k.a. the Affordable Care Act. And while Palin and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean couldn’t be more opposite on the political spectrum, he apparently agrees with her now. Dean, a very liberal Democrat who is also a physician, ran for president in 2004. Without mentioning Palin specifically, Dean wrote in The Wall Street Journal last year that “… One major problem [with Obamacare] is the so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board. The IPAB is essentially a health-care rationing body… getting rid of the IPAB is something Democrats and Republicans ought to agree on.”

Given the VA scandal, do you agree or disagree that the government offers a better safety net to illegal aliens than military vets? •

Preventing the Tomahawk chop

By Steve Russell President Obama has announced plans to shrink the military to preWorld War II levels. This is staggering given the U.S. role in the world. Our nation will be weakened such that we’ll no longer have the capacity for a twofront war, for the first time since 1942. When President Obama launched operations against Libya in 2011, he

spoke of bringing “America’s unique capabilities” to the table and justified the launch of Tomahawk missiles to destroy Libyan air defenses as the preferred method to “not deploy US troops on the ground.” That may soon change. In President Obama’s 2015 budget request, he plans a 50 percent chop in cruise missiles

By Amy Savicky-Injaian Even though Military Appreciation Month just wrapped up this May, it’s always a great time to remember those who who hold down the fort at home. Regardless of the service branch, being a military spouse — and finding a company that knows how to support military spouses — isn’t easy. I know. For nearly six years, my husband, Paul, was a Navy Master at Arms. Fortunately, my employer, Wells Fargo, is committed to finding careers for military veterans and supporting service members and their families while honoring the unique strengths we bring to the workplace. How can you experience the same results at your company? Here are four ways employers can support military spouses and put us at “ease.”

1.  Employ us.

Being a military spouse isn’t for everyone, bringing deployments and long separations. But this also produces strong and self-reliant workers committed to keep marriages and families strong and thriving — the same qualities that make us great employees. Paul and I spent our first four years living in separate states. He was stationed at Naval Base Kitsap in Washington; I continued my career in communications with Wells Fargo in San Francisco. This provided stability and gave me purpose, especially during long periods of time apart. In many ways, my work put me at ease.

2.  Assist us when our country calls our spouses to new duty stations.

At first, I was nervous to tell my employer that Paul was in the Navy for fear I would be labeled a “job jumper.” When Paul received orders to Naval Base San Diego, the largest naval instil-

To my surprise, my manager, co-workers, and company valued my husband’s service to our country — and my professional contributions — so that I was able to transfer to another communications team as I moved from San Francisco to San Diego.

3.  Support us during important military milestones.

For me, that included being able to use my paid time off to go to Chicago for Paul’s boot camp graduation and to Texas when he graduated from “A” School, where enlistees learn their job assignments.

4. Embrace us, because community matters.

I was born and raised in Johnson City, N.Y., and my entire family lives on the East Coast. There were times, however, when I still felt alone while SPOUSES, cont’d. on Page 26

Guard never analyzed NASCAR spending effectiveness

San Diego one of top five military communities in the U.S. for families USAA, a leading financial services provider focused on serving the military community and their eligible family members, developed its first “Top Military Communities” list to help make it easier for active-duty families to find a home to rent or buy this moving season. The new list identifies the top communities in the five U.S. metro areas with the greatest military active duty

Corrected item from the May 15, 2014 issue. Incorrect article ran under this headline. WASHINGTON — The Army National Guard continued spending on NASCAR sponsorship for about a decade without analyzing the program or looking into why all active service branches found it too expensive and ineffective, the guard’s acting director told a Senate panel recently. Maj. Gen. Judd Lyons said the service’s oversight over the NASCAR spending was inadequate, and a review of its sports marketing programs is under way and should be completed within 30 days. The guard spends $32 million a year on a NASCAR sports marketing contract that splashes its logo across race events, and sponsors car and driver visits to public schools across the country. But a Senate Subcommittee on Financial and Contracting Oversight investigation, headed by chairwoman Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., reported that the spending resulted in zero new guard recruits in 2012 and last year only about 8,000 of the 1 million leads needed to meet recruiting goals. The NASCAR sponsorship is designed to boost the National Guard’s brand name.

The majority of our veterans have served during wartime. Yet these veterans receive limited access to resources


that are vital to their reintegration into their communities. Military discounts are small or infrequent. The majority of veterans do not receive military discounts because they do not have an ID card. More than that, the cost for the average football game or concert is over $500 for a family of four. This makes many events simply un-affordable for average Military and Veteran families. Veteran Tickets Foundation is concerned that too many veterans are missing out on the All-American moments for which they have fought and sacrificed. These All-American events are the times we should use to welcome and acknowledge our veterans. These events provide essential community re-integration, family bonding experiences and improve quality of life. These events are real gifts of gratitude for veterans who have given so much.

VA recognizes same-sex war widow’s marriage

A war widow has had her marriage officially recognized by the VA, two years after her wife was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. Tracy Dice Johnson married Staff Sgt. Donna Johnson in the nation’s capital months after the September 2011 repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Both were part of the North Carolina National Guard. Johnson is believed to be the nation’s first same-sex war widow. “After a review of my case, the Department of Veterans Affairs has decided to retroactively recognize me as Donna’s legal spouse,” Johnson said Saturday, while accepting an award in Washington, D.C. “Of course, there remains more work to be done. Throughout this ordeal, my biggest goal has been to get the Army to change Donna’s death certificate to recognize our marriage. That goal has not yet been achieved. However, this decision from the Department of Veterans Affairs is an important step toward our end goal of achieving equal treatment for all military families.”

CMC thanks Marines involved in San Diego County firefighting efforts

Amos gave his personal thanks and congratulations to Marines and firefighters involved in the firefighting operations in San Diego County, San Diego, Calif.

Avoid rentals scams on your next military move It’s time to move and scammers are waiting to cash in on your frequent military moves and rip you off. Many of us begin the search when we know a move is imminent or as soon as orders are cut. It all starts innocently enough — we spend hours online looking for the home which is the best fit for our family, in the best school districts and more. It can be difficult to determine whether an opportunity is legitimate or not, so start by doing your homework and be cautious before committing to anything. Many of us have no idea how many scammers are lying in wait; real estate scams are a common reality in today’s rental market and just like the old saying,”If it seems too good to be true, it probably is!”

Here are some instant red flags while browsing online rentals: • They ask for money via Western Union, money orders, wire transfer, or to mail cash. • They ask you to wire them the money to a bank in a different city or state than where the property is located. • The ad uses poor grammar or has misspelled words. • They are unable to show you the house because they are out of town, already moved, sick, etc. • They email you from a free internet provider such as yahoo, hotmail, gmail. • They don’t require you to fill out any paperwork and are willing to rent you the house almost immediately. • They mention religion. • They say once they receive your money they will send you the key. • They won’t provide a phone number to reach them at.

‘Pistol’ Pete Maravich Even if you grew up watching Michael Jordan, have been dazzled by Kobe Bryant and floored by LeBron James, you’ll still want to see the moves of “Pistol” Pete Maravich, one of the great ball players of all time. With white socks flopping over the ankles of his skinny legs, and a mop top of brown hair, Maravich was a sports star befitting the Age of Aquarius. Sure, Julius Erving, Walt Frazier and Rick Barry were of the same era. But with moves such as the “no look” pass and Harlem Globetrotter-inspired dribbling, nobody put on a show like Pete Maravich. To those who never saw him play live, but only watched what few games were on television or listened on radio, the Maravich story at LSU may seem larger than life. But his skills were perfected through hours and hours of repetitious drills at all hours of the day and night and in all kinds of settings. Maravich ended up receiving the richest contract ever offered a college player at the time to sign with the Atlanta Hawks ($1.9 million), but during his 10year career with the Hawks, the New Orleans and Utah Jazz and the Boston Celtics, his dream of a championship

wasn’t fulfilled. •  Died suddenly at age 40 during a pick-up game as a consequence of a previously undetected congenital heart defec •  Three-time 1st Team All American at LS •  Naismith trophy for player of the year — 1970 •  All time leading NCAA division 1 scorer with 3667 points, average 44.2 points per game •  All of his accomplishments were achieved before the 3 point line was introduced to NCAA basketball and despite being unable to play varsity as a freshman under then NCAA rules •  One of the youngest players ever inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame •  Holder of numerous NCAA scoring records and some 26 southeastern conference records •  10 years as an NBA player with Atlanta Hawks, New Orleans Jazz, and Boston Celtics

Left, LeBron James on the receiving end of attention from Lance Stephenson during a recent game.

Whispering sweet nothings on the court •  Leading scorer in NBA in 76-77 with 31.1 average - 1st team all pro •  Five-time NBA All Star •  Chosen as one of the best players of the 70’s by NBA and media •  Chosen as one of the “50 Greatest Players” of all time in 1997 •  Youngest player to ever be inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame •  NBA career scoring average of 24.1 points per game •  Sited by the hall of fame as “perhaps the greatest creative offensive talent in history”

Lance Stephenson will always be Lance Stephenson. No matter if his teammates think he should dial it down, he’ll never change and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The league needs an antagonist to a degree. It makes things interesting. Lance’s in-your face defense of LeBron was great to watch and very effective. He limited LeBron to just 7 points in game 5. During a dead ball in last night’s game 5 Indiana win over Miami, Lance was seen blowing in LeBron’s ear to get under his skin. It’s both funny and childish in the same breath. It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility if the league fines Lance for this.

Stripper + NBA player = paternity suit While the Indiana Pacers were fighting for their lives in the Eastern Conference Finals, Paul George may have spent most of pregames dealing with more pressing matters. Page Six is reporting that mother of Paul George’s new born baby girl has slapped him with a serious paternity suit. We originally reported that George apparently got a stripper he met on a Yacht party pregnant last summer. Daniela Rajic, 24, filed a paternity suit against George in Manhattan Family Court for baby Olivia who was born on May 1. The source said, “Paul and Daniela saw each other a number of times over the course of a few months in Miami last summer. She became pregnant,

and their daughter was born on May 1. She has already undertaken a paternity test, and there’s no question he is the father. The court is still expected to order an official DNA test.” While Rajic’s lawyers Raoul Felder and Daniel Nottes declined to comment George — who also dated Callie Rivers, the daughter of Clippers head coach Doc Rivers earlier this year — had previously said he was ready to step up and help raise the child.

Rare ’71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda convertible races for $4 million payday By Justin Hyde, Motoramic For those of us who can’t remember 1971, it might be difficult to explain why an automaker would walk away from muscle cars, especially one as dominant in its heyday as the Plymouth Hemi Cuda. By then, muscle cars felt played out; between smog laws, gas prices and rising insurance rates, power stopped being quite so cool. Those trends were temporary, but they still reverberate

today with the reverse effect — making this 1971 Hemi Cuda convertible potentially the most valuable muscle car ever when it goes up for sale next month. The last of the fire-breathing Barracuda variants have always been sought after; because of waning demand, Chrysler made only 11 Hemi Cuda convertibles in 1971, each with the 425-hp big-block V-8 and nuHEMI CUDA, cont’d. on Page 26

U.S. military surf team claims victory


Celebrating Over 25 Years of Responsible Lending!

On Saturday, May 24th, the Red Bull Rivals International Surf Competition revisited the surf rivalry between the U.S. Military and British Army surf teams. This one-day competition showcased ten surfers from each country battling it out in a head-to-head surf competition in the restricted waters of Del Mar Jetty at Camp Pendelton. The battle lasted for 4 hours as 1,000 spectators cheered on their respective country.

One team from the East Coast surfed in the top half of the inning and the West Coast surfed in the bottom-half of the inning, which was determined by a coin toss. With four to five surfers participating in each inning, the total inning score consisted of each surfer’s highest scoring wave. Instead of a traditional prize purse, the teams competed for each other’s surfboards used in the competition (similar to racing for pink slips) as well as ultimate bragging rights. The British Army Surf Team started off the contest strong in the first quarter by utilizing great strategy to maximize the wave sets but the U.S. Team answered back in the 2nd quarter by bringing out their “Dream Team.” U.S. Coast Guard 2nd Class Petty Officer, Kristopher Grimm, obtained the wave of the day with a perfect score of 10 to bring his team to the lead. In the 3rd quarter there was a shift in tides and the British Army Surf Team was unable to get in position for any high scoring waves. The U.S. was able to solidify their win in the 4th by gaining some big scores as the British Army fell further behind. In the end, the U.S. Military Surf Team took the win ending the competition with final team scores of 94.5 and the UK with 81. “After the second quarter, the U.S. Military Surf Team just got into a rhythm and started surfing better as the game went on,” said Shaun Burrell, Executive Director of the National Surf League who ran the judging at the contest on Saturday. “They really seemed to come together as a team which ultimately is what won it for them in the end.”

Choosing a new home that’s just right for you By Bethany Lyttle Picking out a new house can be exciting and terrifying at the same time. How do you choose the best location? What if the house has problems you can’t afford to fix? What’s the tiebreaker if you love two places equally? The first and only way to begin the decision-making process is to grab your calculator. A dream home becomes a nightmare the moment you can’t afford it. “As you calculate, look beyond

the listing price,” says Steve Jones, associate broker of Crawford Olson Real Estate in McCall, Idaho. Here’s why: A house with a vaulted ceiling costs more to heat than one with a low ceiling. And a house with a pool means paying to maintain it. All these extra factors can add up. Another less-tangible way to decide if a home is right for you is to trust your intuition, says Pat Trainor, a realtor with Coldwell Banker High Country Realty in Blue Ridge, Georgia. “I be-

lieve that most buyers form an impression in the first few seconds after they walk into a house,” he says. Even as a seasoned agent, he says he formulates

an impression almost immediately. “Is this a happy house? Or does it depress me? Notice how you respond—and trust your reactions,” Trainor adds. Trainor says he’s noticed that when a house is a good fit for a buyer, the couple or family will begin to talk about where they’d place their furniture. “When a client is doing this, he or she is mentally moving into the home,” says Trainor. The upshot? If you’re viewing a house and find yourself imagining your sofa near the window and your green chair near the fireplace, pay attention. Chances are, the house is a nice match for you. That said, there’s no such thing as a crystal ball when it comes to house hunting. And wondering whether the house will be too small if you get a dog — or too big when the kids leave for college — is inevitable. But Cindy Jones, also of Crawford Olson Real Estate, says that while it’s important to envision a home’s role over time, making a decision with too many variables in mind can work against you. “Buy the house for the way you are living today,” she says. Then adapt as you go. Another tip? Decide based on how you live, not where you’ll live. A house that offers dramatic mountain views and enormous windows onto a pond can seem like a wonderful place to call home. But if you’re rarely home during the day, the views aren’t going to be visible most of the time. Focus on features that will please you indoors. This advice is particularly applicable to high-traffic parts of the house, such as the kitchen. A sleek, minimalist European stainless steel breakfast bar may set your heart on fire, but if you’ve got busy toddlers, a practical kitchen with lots of room and sturdy smudgeresistant cabinetry may be a better match. When you finally do make a decision, should you make an offer right away? Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. “I usually advise sleeping on it overnight,” says Trainor. The exception can be when a market is especially active. “This is a real gut check time. Would you be broken hearted if you lost this house to another buyer? If the answer is yes, make an offer. Seldom will you go wrong if you follow your heart.” •

Talking dog for sale

Just for Laughs

A man sees a sign in front of a house: “Talking Dog for Sale.” He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in the backyard. He goes into the backyard and sees a black mutt just sitting there. “You talk?” he asks. “Yep,” the mutt replies. “So, what’s your story?” The mutt looks up and says, “Well, I discovered this gift pretty young and I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.” “I was one of their most valuable spies eight years running. But, the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger and I wanted to settle down.”


“So, I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security work, mostly wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings there and was awarded a batch of medals.” “Had a wife, a mess of puppies, and now I’m just retired.” The man is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. The owner says, “Ten dollars.” The guy says, “This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?” The owner replies, “He’s such a liar. He didn’t do any of that stuff.”

Hung out to dry

Nathan and Mary were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Nathan suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Mary promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Nathan out. When the Head Nurse became aware of Mary’s heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Mary the news she said, “Mary, I have good news and bad news.

Working it

Sixteen years ago, a young woman, with a baby in her arms, entered his bakery and confronted the baker with the news that the baby was his and asked what was he going to do about it? Finally he offered to provide her with free baked goods (bread) until the boy was 16. She agreed. He had been counting the years off on his calendar, and one day the teenager, who had been collecting the bread each week, came into the shop and said, “I’ll be 16 tomorrow.” “I know,” said the baker with a smile, “I’ve been counting too, tell your mother, when you take this loaf of bread home, that it is the last loaf of bread she’ll get, and watch the expression on her face.” When the boy arrived home he told his mother. The woman nodded and said, “Son, go back to the baker and tell him I have also had free meat, free milk, and free health care for the last 16 years and watch the expression on his face!”

The foreman pointed out a huge pile of sand and told the Italian guy, “You’re in charge of sweeping.” To the Scotsman he said, “You’re in charge of shoveling.” And to the Chinese guy, “You’re in charge of supplies.” He then said, “Now, I have to leave for a little while. I expect you guys to make a dent in that there pile.” The foreman went away for a of couple hours, and, when he returned, the pile of sand was untouched. He asked the Italian, “Why didn’t you sweep any of it?” The Italian replied, “I no hava no broom. You said to the Chinese fella that he a wasa in a charge of supplies, but he hasa disappeared and I no coulda finda him nowhere.” Then the foreman turned to the Scotsman and said, “And you, I thought I told you to shovel this pile.” The Scotsman replied, “Aye, ye did lad, boot ah couldnay get meself a shoovel! Ye left th’ Chinese guy in charge of supplies, boot ah couldnay fin’ him either.” The foreman was really angry by now and stormed off toward the pile of sand to look for the Chinese guy. Just then, the Chinese guy jumped out from behind the pile of sand and yelled... “SUPPLIES!!”

Hole-in-one hell

There was this preacher who was an avid golfer. Every chance he could get, he could be found on the golf course swinging away. It was an obsession. One Sunday was a picture perfect day for golfing. The sun was out, no clouds in the sky, and the temperature was just right. The preacher was in a quandary as to what to do, and shortly, the urge to play golf overcame him. He called an assistant to tell him that he was sick and could not do church, packed the car up, and drove three hours to a golf course where no one would recognize him. Happily, he began to play the course. An angel up above was watching the preacher and was quite perturbed. He went to God and said, “Look at the preacher. He should be punished for what he is doing.” God nodded in agreement. The preacher teed up on the first hole. He swung at the ball, and it sailed effortlessly through the air and landed right in the cup three hundred and fifty yards away (as they say in basketball, nothing but net). A picture perfect hole-in-one. He was amazed and excited. The angel was a little shocked. He turned to God and said, “Begging Your

pardon, but I thought you were going to punish him.” God smiled. “Think about it -- who can he tell.”

Murderous neighbor

A judge asks a defendant to please stand. “You are charged with murdering a garbage man with a chain saw.”

From the back of the courtroom a man shouts, “You lying son of a...,”

“Silence in the court!” The judge turns to the defendant again and says, “You are also charged with killing a paperboy with a shovel.”

“You tightwad son of a…,” blurts the spectator.

“Quiet!” yelled the judge. “You are also charged with killing a mailman with an electric drill.”

“You cheap son of a...,” the spectator starts to shout.

The judge thunders back, “I will hold you in contempt! What is the reason for your outbursts?”

“I’ve lived next to that lying dirt bag for 10 years now, but do you think he ever loaned me a tool when I needed to borrow one?

other fine specimen, this wonder reproduced 120 times last year.” Again the wife bugs her husband, “Hey, that’s more than twice a week. What do you say to that?” Her husband is getting really annoyed with this comparison. The third bull is up for sale, “And this extraordinary specimen reproduced 365 times last year!” The wife slaps her husband on the arm and yells, “That’s once a day, every day of the year! How about you?” The husband was pretty irritated by now and yells back, “Sure, once a day! Great! But, you ask the auctioneer if they were all with the same cow!”


Two dwarfs go into a bar, where they pick up two prostitutes and take them

to their separate hotel rooms. The first dwarf, however, is unable to make love. His depression is enhanced by the fact that, from the next room, he hears cries of, “ONE, TWO, THREE...UUUUH!” all night long. In the morning, the second dwarf asks the first, “How did it go?” The first whispered back, “It was so embarrassing. I just couldn’t make it happen.“ The second dwarf shook his head. “You think that’s embarrassing?” he asked. “I couldn’t even get up on the bed!!!”

Cont’d. from Page 5 of Congress. Teaming up with Georgetown University, NASA will embark on its next mission by hosting a oneweek seminar exploring “how Congress works,” an endeavor almost as complicated and mysterious as the universe. Apparently, this mission is one that will last for five years, with a price tag of $3 million.

10. Pimping the tax code to subsidize Nevada brothels with $17.5 million

Through the tax code, Uncle Sam is assisting the operation of the legal brothels in Nevada. These businesses are antiquated reminders of the state’s silver boom (which started in the 1850s) yet they still manage to get special treatment in the tax code via deductions and expenses designed for businesses. These exemptions significantly reduce a brothel’s overall federal income tax liability, even though annual revenues for the industry have been estimated at approximately $50 million. About 19 legal brothels currently exist in Nevada. Only 10 counties out of 3,007 in the U.S. allow prostitution, and all are in Nevada. The counties have just 300,000 residents. Brothels are hardly economic

drivers for communities since most “are in rural areas with few people.”

9. Unused military facility gets $34 million

As troops in Afghanistan were closing bases and sending military equipment back home, the DOD was finalizing construction of a state-of-the-art, 64,000-square-foot command HQ facility on Camp Leatherneck that has never been occupied, and will likely be torn down or turned over to the Afghan government, as the facility will likely fall outside the camp’s new security perimeter. The Marine Corps requested the project be canceled months after it was initiated in 2010. Nonetheless, the Air Force issued a task order to continue to build the facility in February 2011 and the U.S. government took control of it in November 2012.

8. $65 million for postSandy “Open for Business” campaign

Of the $60.4 billion Congress appropriated for areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy, at least $65 million were put toward local television ads. Instead of giving aid to the people who needed it most, state-level officials in New York and New Jersey couldn’t wait to spend the money on tourism-related TV adver-

tisements. Adding insult to injury for some local residents, the flow of disaster aid has been both paltry and slow. As of October 2013, only one person on Staten Island has received help in the form of housing assistance. In contrast, funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for television ads flowed quickly. According to the agency, Washington approved waivers for the states of New York and New Jersey to allow the states special permission to spend funds slated for disaster relief aid on tourism advertisements instead. Despite these efforts, tourism in the Jersey Shore was still down between 20% and 40% over the last year, calling into question the effectiveness of the ad campaigns in the first place.

7. Militarization of your local police force to the tune $82.5 million

Everyone knows that Ohio State University football games can get wild, but campus cops may have finally taken things too far. Using a defense department program, the school and dozens of other police jurisdictions are receiving some of the military’s surplus armored vehicles. At a cost of $500,000 each, taxpayers “gifted” $82.5 million in surplus Mine Resistant Ambush

Protected (MRAP) tactical vehicles to law enforcement agencies in 165 communities, including dozens of rural and sparsely populated regions. Intended for large-scale emergencies, MRAPs are equipped machine gun turrets, bulletproof glass, and armored siding. From Bates County, Missouri to High Springs, Florida, local law enforcement agencies in rural and small-town communities are being equipped with the same military-grade tools that troops utilized to fight the War on Terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some local residents have objected, noting that the weapons seem out of place here at home. But as one recipient county sheriff remarked, “It’s intimidating, and it’s free.”

6. Sugar daddy gov’t. loses $171.5 million in loans to sugar companies

In 2013 alone, the government lost $171.5 million because sugar companies could not pay back the government for money they had previously borrowed. Why the hell are sugar companies getting government loans in the first place, you might ask? Good question: The 2008 Farm Bill created the Feedstock Flexibility Program (FFP) to increase the use of ethanol and biofuels. Under this program, the govern- •

ment is required, in times of surplus, to buy sugar from processors and to re-sell the sugar to ethanol plants. Since the 2012-2013 sugar harvest season is the first to yield a surplus, taxpayers are witnessing the program’s wasteful nature for the first time. In August (the first use of the FFP), the USDA bought only 7,118 tons out of 100,000 tons of sugar offered for resale. USDA then sold this sugar to an ethanol maker at a $2.7 million loss. In its second purchase, USDA paid $65.9 million for 136,026 tons of sugar, and then sold it to ethanol makers for $12.6 million at a $53.3 million loss. Facing a global surplus of sugar for the foreseeable future, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said the FFP will cost taxpayers at least $239 million over the next ten years. Guess who pays for these careless trade losses? That’s right, you do.

5. Facebook gets $295 million tax refund

Despite bringing in more than $1 billion in U.S. pretax profits, Facebook reported a combined $429 million refund from federal and state tax filings. Uncle Sam cut Facebook a $295 million check to Facebook in 2012, according to an analysis of the company’s 10-K filing. Facebook’s first annual 10-K report, filed with the SEC, details the company’s use of the employee stock

option tax deduction, which lowered the company’s income taxes owed to federal and state authorities by $1.03 billion last year. By providing stock options as a major form of compensation, to date, Facebook has claimed $3.2 billion in federal and state stock option deductions, $1.03 billion of which was used to offset their total U.S. pretax profit of $1.1 billion in 2012, and $429 million was refunded from its 2010 and 2011 tax bills. The remaining $2.17 billion in stock option tax deductions can now be carried forward by the company and used to offset future tax liabilities. Dislike.

The Army spent three and a half years and nearly $300 million building a football field-sized blimp called the Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle (LEMV) to provide continuous surveillance over Afghanistan battlefields.

licity, marketing, and advertising will be at least $684 million (according to data compiled by the Associated Press from federal and state sources), meaning twice as much money will be spent on the PR campaign then the actual budget of building the website.

2. Warplanes that won’t be used: $432 million

The Air Force is clipping the wings of brand new planes before they even take their maiden flight. In August 2012, a former Air Force Chief of Staff testified before Congress that the Air Force did not want to acquire more C-27Js due to the fiscal constraints brought on by the sequester, the C-27Js’ limited capabilities, and because the C-130 was more cost effective. Contrary to the Air Force’s request to stop production of the planes, and even though Congress was aware that the planes would never be used, it continued to fund C-27J production in the Fiscal Year 2012 National Defense Authorization Act. After taking existing C-27Js out of service, the Air Force then hoarded its brand new C-27Js at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona — 16 new C-27Js in September 2013 and an additional five in 2014 — without the aircrafts taking a single flight in support of our service members, according to a Dayton Daily

News investigative report. Making matters worse, the Department of Defense (DOD) plans to mothball five more brand new C-27Js which are expected to be built by April 2014, increasing the existing waste of approximately 4,400 unused aircraft and 13 aerospace vehicles from the DOD and NASA, for a total value of more than $35 billion.

1. Federal workers get pay and benefits while owing $3.5 billion in back taxes

In 2011, the IRS found 312,000 federal employees and retirees were delinquent on their federal income taxes, owing a total of $3.5 billion in unpaid federal income taxes. This represented an 11.5% increase in the number of federal employees failing to pay their taxes and a 2.9% increase in the total taxes owed to the Treasury by these public servants. The 2011 figures (the most recent year for which data is available) include 107,658 civilian federal employees owing more than $1 billion in unpaid taxes; 141,980 military and civilian retirees owing $2.1 billion in taxes; and 61,928 current military with $329 million in outstanding taxes. Why should government employee tax cheats continue to have the rest of us pay their salaries and benefits?

This car set for Mecum’s Seattle auction on June 14 purports to be only one of two Hemi Cuda droptops built with a four-speed transmission, and of that pair the only one with its original engine. Given the soaring values for authentic American muscle cars — like the $3.85 million paid for a 1967 Chevy Corvette L88 earlier this year — Mecum expects the Hemi Cuda to bring about $4 million upon sale, along with further confirmation of just how far we’ve come since 1971. •
