Governmental Truth

MARK TWAIN

1835-1910

"It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress."

Don't believe I'm taken in

by the stories that I've heard.

I just read the daily news

And swear by every word.

Steely Dan

No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement of Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time. (Emphasis ours) Article I Section 9 of the United States Constitution.

Maybe Mark Twain was right!

 The $5 billion of missing USDA money represents 8% of its $60 billion dollar annual budget. If that lost money figure were representative of the entire U.S. government annual expenditures of $3 trillion, then your government would be unable to account for almost $250 billion dollars in spending!

To place these numbers in terms individual familes can understand, suppose your family makes $75,000 per year. If you could not account for over $6,000 of that would you be concerned? If you run a small business that grosses $250,000 in gross revenue a year, would you be satisifed with being uable to account for $20,000 of it?

Man must be cheated just as woman must be charmed.

"The Republicans are for the rich, the Democrats are for the poor!" has been repeated so often that the largest group of all, the great American middle class, seems lost in the shuffle. Wonder why?

It's not who's sold.

It's not who's bought.

It's not the kickback.

It's of you get caught!
