CNS News has collected a few samples:

• Swedish massages for rabbits: $387,000

Not even a Supreme Court Justice could find the constitutional authority to spend our confiscated money on any of this demented crapola.

Meanwhile, the national debt rockets toward $18 trillion, a number too vast for the human mind to properly comprehend, with no sign of slowing despite the steady upward creep of taxation.

Money Down Drain
Our money.
