  • I absolutely agree sweet-a-kins. There's no reason why we should be paying for that crap. Let them buy their own bottled water and soda.

  • I am gonna guess the pretty sky lights in the booze warehouse. I thought that was money well spent.

    That is such bull dookey! But it totally reminded me of the scene from Independence day when they are talking about area 51 and the president says "Where did you get the funding for this?" and the old guy says "You don't really think they spent 4 million dollars on a toilet seat do you?!" lol

  • I can't even wrap my head around those numbers.

    We're flat broke and they're redecorating? 7000 cans of soda? Bottled water? Seriously? They drink bottled water on my dime?

    the pensions alone will make you insane...
