Is the a better sign
Of tough economic times
Then the price per gallon
You put in your wagon?
I think not!
[via Losangeles.cbslocal]AVALON, CATALINA ISLAND (CBS) — Catalina Island is known for many things… its picturesque scenery, seafood and hiking, to name a few. But what about high gas prices?

It is good to know the government has your back
By making sure wasteful spending has been hacked!

FauxFox News] The Obama administration is responding to the recent report that shows a federal agency spent more that $800,000 on a lavish conference near Las Vegas by putting some of the blame on the Bush administration.
“At least we have taken, bold, swift forceful action to hold those responsible accountable and put in place protections to make sure this never happened again,” a White House official told Fox News.
The Inspector General Office’s report last week about the 2010 General Services Administration conference outside of Las Vegas indicates the Obama administration knew about the trip since May 2010. The report was followed by a release of videos.
One video shows an employee performing in the fake music video, which is laced with jokes and references that only federal employees are likely to get.
In the lyrics, the employee sings: “Donate my vacation, love to the nation, I’ll never be under OIG investigation.”
The report found the Public Buildings Service, part of the General Services Administration, spent more than $840,000 on the conference.
Two House committees now are probing the agency. One of those, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, posted the video of the GSA employees online.
Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said a briefing Thursday by the Office of the Inspector General shows General Services Administrator Martha Johnson and Steven Leeds, senior counselor to the administrator, were told in May 2011 about the investigation of the conference. They resigned Monday.[Read More]
Blaming Bush? Easy deflection…
And absolute FAIL! cause, dudes? *whispers* “The man hasn’t been President for a few YEARS now.”
Not sure if you knew, but I just wanted to point that out.
I know its hard, and seriously who LIKES to do it…
But takes some freaking PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for a freaking change!
You screwed up, were BUSTED!, then were called on it. YOU absolutely pooch-screwed away hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars, and only because you thought your government job was ‘above’ being called on your crappy behavior.
OWN it, Big Government…
