‘Gazillion’ ways to waste tax dollars


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— Just read a letter about prison overcrowding in West Virginia. On the news last week was an article about the United States building two prisons in Haiti.

Will this alleviate the overcrowding in U.S. prisons? I don’t think so.

The politicians can think of a gazillion ways to waste the taxpayers’ money.

Another example is the billions given to Brazil to develop offshore oil fields so we can become customers of theirs, and it is clear the president of Brazil doesn’t think much of this country. And we are seeing $4 a gallon gas.

 Pitiful it is.

Just my humble opinion.
