Your tax dollars at work: Here’s what they were doing at that blowout GSA conference in Vegas

Four days, 300 people, $823,000 in taxpayer money down the chute (including $146,000 in catered food and drink, i.e. $486 per person for eats), which means the agency “followed neither federal procurement laws nor its own policy on conference spending.” The bad news: According to Darrell Issa, the White House knew about this 11 months ago but didn’t do a thing about it until the press found out about the conference earlier this week.


I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971

But they want to keep the endless wars and cut elderly benefits they worked all their life for. They are setting up security checkpoints and buying tons of .40 caliber hollow point bullets to "protect" you.
Still you do nothing because freedom is no longer worth dying for. wave.gif

At the start of his mind-reading act, Bob Garner asked a federal employee for the name of his dead dog. He asked someone else to recall a person close to them who had passed away. Then he shared some of the messages the deceased sent from the other side.

Garner also tied a black blindfold around his eyes and asked the audience to pull out four items from their purses and pockets.

Each time, the self-described mentalist and “motivational speaker with a ‘WOW’ factor” was able to divine the truth. What he couldn’t predict was the outrage his $3,200, expenses-paid poolside gig would cause in Washington after his bill showed up on the General Services Administration’s $823,000 tab from a Las Vegas spending spree.
