  • do we really pay these people to recognize anniversaries of things? Anyone else feel like they are taking advantage of their salaries?

  • Yes, those recognitions are important to the people who are being recognized and an important part of most advocacy/ public service campaigns.

  • Lovin... they have been taking advantage of the fact that we pay their salaries for over two centuries! ROFL. The politicians in Washington lost touch of the little people a long time ago.

  • Look at how long it takes them to name a post office after somebody most of us have never heard of.


    They do this all the time. Also naming roads after somebody.

  • The government pays scientists to study which katsup runs the slowest...nothing suprises me, other than the fact that we as Americans do nothing but bitch about this kind of thing rather than kick some butt and take some names and tell our gov we won't be taking this anymore!
