Can you imagine a business or someone’s personal accounting that was like this?
Well only if you’re a trust fund baby or someone whom got rich from someone else’s work. Government spending is so completely lost that nobody seems to care anymore, amazing when all these clowns run around saying we need to tax more, give more, blah blah blah…
Recent report on California revealed that almost of half of the state's cars and trucks are unaccounted for. Some 30K out of 70K vehicles are, get this, apparently just missing. I’m sure all of you misplace your cars on a regular basis, right? Wonder how much other money is “lost in” space, whoops I meant “lost in” California.
The US government is a whole lot better, they misplace millions, whoops, make that billions, and some suggest hundreds of billions or more that simply go “unaccounted” for. You know like your change jar, the money in your mattress, those silly little places where you store your spare change.
And what about the UN’s monetary component that you and I fund? Any programs they run come to mind lately that might indicate a possible “loss of funds”, whoops, I meant went “un-accounted” for? What about the billions of US AID sent all over the world, how well do you think it’s accounted for?
How much control process will be put into place to “manage” the 50+ billion going to the Hurricane relief efforts? Both Katrina and past / future Natural Disasters seem ripe for typical government waste (to the rest of us this would be calling stealing).
What do we not know, how much of this is just plain stolen or just plain lost by sloppy accounting? Yes of course it’s a bit of both, but which is the larger percentage? How are the books reconciled going forward after these “mis-placements”?
Our governments have become so big and so driven by bureaucrats that no one knows what the heck is going on and no one seems to care. We have a few private organizations running around documenting the facts but no one is making a national big deal of this? Why is that?
Maybe, just maybe, there’s so much money going around that the political class doesn’t really care as long as they get their money, nothing else matters…
Is that how you run your business, your day to day checkbook? Some how I doubt it and you know I’m right.
Next time you’re balancing your dollars in and dollars out, just imagine losing a significant portion of it, and then go, oh well…
Have a nice day…
