BARK!...Yeah, undetected leaks and radioactive water is fairly harmless, too. I'm totally with you on this one. Who cares?! The world is just fine sucking the way it is. We'll just have to accommodate with four-sleeved jackets. Or die of cancer. &^$# a better world!

"(Rep) Markey's spokeswoman said his office received the GAO report in early June after requesting it in 2009."

So it takes the Federal Govt 2 years to talk to itself? I'm SO glad we spent billions for the Dept.Of Homeland Security. At least I know sneakers are safe. After being X-Rayed of course.

As one of the economists told the Senate panel on C-Span yesterday,
"It's about time America got off the 40 year Keynesian Cocaine it has been high on. Borrowing from China to build more aircraft carriers and weapons to sell to other nations is unsustainable."

And it's about time all these Govt Regulators earn their pay. A 25% pay cut for them should be in the next Budget as well.

Off topic I know but if I hear one more person say "The govt. doesn't create jobs" I may just punch them right in the nose. And I'll even call the police myself to report the assault.

My guess is the officer will give us each a warning and I'll walk away without any charges. After he punches them as well.
