Monday Morning Smile !! Porkulus Bill

Unfortunate, but true...AND we are paying billion$ for the bail out...
AND the scum bags get a big fat bonus...SOMETHINGS NOT RIGHT,
but is Washington doing anything to solve the problem???

The White House Fence
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in DC:
One is from New York , another is from Tennessee and the third, is from Florida .

All three go with a White House official to examine the fence

The Florida contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring,
then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run
about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says,
"I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The New York contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House
official and whispers, "$2,700." The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure
like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

The New York contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire
the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence." "Done!" replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how government contracting works!

Love the photo of cash going up in flames.

Reminds me of a joke.

How do liberals put out a fire?

Throw money at it.
