    we can not manage both so we have to choose.
    There is a third choice. Choose neither, Cut expenditures on both guns and butter.

    Incompetence is not a crime. The recourse for non-performance is the fire, terminate, not pay the bill or sue for damages.

    Of course the Cons would be have their panties in a bunch about $1.2B in waster. That is completely consistent with their long history and impeccable track record of being vigilant in the stewardship of our taxes.

    Though most Cons would tell you the number was actually closer $4 to $6T all in.... (and that it was amongst dumbest things America has ever done) but then put you at ease because, after all, it wa all financed with tax cuts.

    Study: Iraq, Afghan war costs to top $4 trillion - The Washington Post

    ... Yes, and most Cons are eternally outraged over the $2T that the Pentagon can not account for 2001. You would think the Cons would have, by now, let go of that issue.... but not a day goes by that they would like to say something, but do not be polite.

    9/10/2001: Rumsfeld says $2.3 TRILLION Missing from Pentagon - YouTube

    After all, do you remember the Republican outrage about pointlessly shutting down the government last year because of the cost? That's right, the Cons were all telling us that shutting down the government last year would be an unbelievably stupid idea at it would cost the economy $25B and thus government $5B (based on tax revenues at about 20% of GDP)... and would even paint those that advocated such as irresponsible hypocrites.

    You see, because of their perfect record in managing our budgets, they certainly have a right to their outrage.

    Not so, I do care about spending, and we don't have a defense budget, most everything we've done with our military in the last twenty years is offence. We spent a trillion in Iraq alone and somebody's swallowing that camel while straining at a 1.2 billion Kant!!

    Never is anything to see when it's a liberal democrat WASTING billions of dollars. Only when a president bearing Republican behind his name, after being supported and urged to stop that madman, Saddam Hussein by dozens of democrats...and he actually takes their advice and support and does it. That's when the **** hits the fan with you two faced bastards.

    If we stopped paying them would they do anything? If so I suggest that we stop their pay right now.
    The ones with a conscience have already began to hand in their resignations. Chances are they've all been conservatives.

    You're excused. And you don't need to apologize.

    It's a question dude, not an apology, did you not see the question marks? And why you calling me a bastard. Reagan tripled our ND, Bush-2 doubled the ND, Obama is on course to double it again, I'm not happy with any of that. You on the other hand have your knickers in a knot only when a democrat is wasting money. Partisan hypocrite you are!!!!

    There's a point where incompetance becomes fraud.

    Is it legal for a contracter to gouge the government? No, it's not. Can a contracter claim ignorance? No, he cannot.
