Corruption is ridiculous

I sent the U.S. government my “fair share” to the IRS. Then I came home and listened to the news to discover how the General Services Administration has spent our fair share at a lavish conference to the tune of almost $1 million.

At virtually every turn, the Obama administration engages in waste and corruption.

A GSA administrator, in a congressional hearing, invoked the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution to avoid testifying about suspected wrongdoing.

The administrator has been suspended with pay for now, and because he is a career civil servant under union protection, he will be assigned to another job, and retire with my fair share. That will be his sentence for allegedly committing a felony.

Every administration usually refers to the previous administration to justify waste and corruption. They say Richard Nixon was a crook? He was a saint compared to people in this administration.

Now it is the Secret Service involved in a prostitution scandal in Colombia. I’ll bet the pillow talk was revealing. Do you think that information was offered up to the girls that could compromise the safety of U.S. citizens? Colombia, wait let me think – hasn’t this country been involved in the drug trade somehow? Did we check the baggage compartment of the plane on which the agents flew home?

It is time for the American people to take back their fair share and say loud and clear in November: We are not going to take it anymore!
