Why I Parted Ways With The Right

Something just occurred to me about my conservative nature. I went ape-shit crazy tonight about the thousands of dollars our elected servants have spent on bottled water. It’s a waste of resources, both physical and financial.

In Pelosi’s office alone, we spent $2,740.00 for those bottles of water in three months. It’s not as if visiting dignitaries and constituents used up all those bottles. The House members and their staff likely were the main consumers.

Given the chance, I—and I suspect many here—could figure out a way to reduce this bit of waste.

A few grand for water is wasteful, but small potatoes in the scheme of things. I was ordered to piss away 10 times that amount when my Navy division had money left over the end of the quarter. We waste billions every year, so I don’t get worked up about a grand or two.
