Modern day Rome is burning, and modern day Nero(s) are still fiddlin'
Tom Coburn, Senator (R), of Muskogee, Oklahoma (yep, a gen-u-ine Okie from Muskogee) publishes what he calls the Wastebook. It's a compilation of wasted tax $$$. The 2012 Edition is available online. All 202 pages of it. I've skimmed through it and found waaaaay too many funny/ridiculous/outlandish/dumb/scandalous/unbelivable "projects" to even pick out a few to tell you about.
The Senator even uses 66 of the 202 pages citing and linking to the "Official" details of each and every "project."
And some folks wonder how we piled up $16,000,000,000,000+ in debt. (please take note of those 12 zeros!)
