Speaking from experience, government bureaucrats do not care about you. People have come to terms with this notion and nothing proves it more than how they spend your tax dollars and money they borrow. Washington DC is in a spending spree it has never seen before.

I stumbled upon this article over ProfitConfidential.com in some ways government is wasting tax dollars. Read full article here.
the NEH is spending $6,000 on the history of French lesbians. University of Illinois Associate Professor Tamara Chaplin received the summer stipend for her project “Postwar French Media and the Struggle for Gay Rights.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has spent more than $5.0 million to fund the “Help A Hipster” movement.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has spent $1.1 billion over the past two years to support the tobacco industry. Most of this was spent on direct payments to tobacco growers in 2014.
the Pentagon spent nearly $43.0 million gas station in Sheberghan, Afghanistan. As if the price tag isn’t bad enough, the station only dispenses compressed natural gas (CNG). Unfortunately, few vehicles in the country run on CNG.
