You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

Typical government: The Health & Human Services department spends an average of $146 per month per employee for email services.

Considering the number of employees, 70,000, you would think the government could get a discount making the cost less that what an ordinary citizen pays for home service. Instead, they pay about twice as much.

Which means we must of course give them control over 1/6 of the nation’s economy. How else can we rein in costs?

    Think backwards and then you understand how government, this government, actually works. Nancy Pelosi would consider that as a stimulus to the economy. She would be correct if you chose to look at it in only a certain way, keeping in mind that the money that they spend first has to be confiscated through taxation from the people in the first place. And who knows better how to spend their own money? In our country, the government knows best. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    Think backwards, upside down and counter to common sense and then we will be able to understand.
