    If that's the kind of idiocy you expect from the people around you, you need to elevate your status a bit. I apologizing for trying to joke with you. I realize now that you are completely humorless and I won't make the mistake again, sir.
    I fell for nothing, I took your post at your word since there was no sarcasm emote or reason to believe otherwise. There was nothing in your post to indicate ANY type of humor whatsoever. Don't quit your day job, you're no comedian. Telling jokes in the shower doesn't make you a stand-up comic. I guess we shouldn't take your posts at your word since you lie obviously.

    Lmao. I actually thought you were serious and was ready blast the hell out of you for it. Nicely done, nicely done.

    Don't know if this is still true, but Garamond was a licensed font whereas Times New Roman is a free public domain font.

    I'm neither right wing or a minion. I only speak from experience, of which I have more than I wish to regarding the topic.

    Sad, but true.

    True in the other direction, as well.

Poor kid doesn't realize the government is too corrupt for common sense solutions like that.
    Another sad truth. Baseline budgeting removes all incentive to cut spending by any agency or department, and allows politicians to lie to us regarding spending increases... and the gullible among us fall for it every time.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It is easy to make blanket statements. It demonstrates ignorance. Plenty of government workers pride themselves on saving taxpayers money. I see it plenty in my area.

    I said nothing of the individual employees, it's an impossibility to identify the habits of every single federal employee. I am speaking of the departments as a whole, and the fatal baseline budgeting process used. This isn't a tinfoil hat conspiracy, this is a very real problem.

    Baseline budgeting is probably one of the most insidious things our federal government uses when talking/figuring money and budgets. And what makes it even worse is, even though it's not a secret, virtually few average people know about it or understand it. Hence, they fall for the outright lies perpetrated by our politicians when they speak of "cuts" in the budget, and so on.
