Time to reduce the pentagon budget by 75% and eliminate DHS.

A forensic audit of the purchasing process would be a good thing. Suppliers should not be able to charge more than fair market price for anything. The government should not be able to agree to make purchases at profiteering prices.

But without profits, how can we afford to buy our congressmen?

Where is Ron Lawl and Alan Grayson on this?

This is just as important as the audit of the Fed which exposed:

The total lending for the Fed’s “broad-based emergency programs” was $16,115,000,000,000. That’s right, more than $16 trillion. The four largest recipients, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch and Bank of America, received more than a trillion dollars each. The 5th largest recipient was Barclays PLC. The 8th was the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, PLC. The 9th was Deutsche Bank AG. The 10th was UBS AG. These four institutions each got between a quarter of a trillion and a trillion dollars. None of them is an American bank. http://getsmartnews.com/news/297229

Or perhaps a large sign, while surrounding the TV stations with this demand(among others)

The media keeps pretending they don't know what we want, so we need to take our demands to the media and stand outside the station until they get it.

These are not the brightest bulbs, so we must speak to the media slowly...spell it out for them very clearly....keep explaining it to them until it overcomes their stupidity and brainwashing...

Why is it the real solutions on this board go quickly to the bottom of the list, yet stupid troll topics keep getting bumped? Perhaps the real OWS people on this board should stop responding??

The United States is fighting terrorism - one snow cone at a time.

Montcalm County recently received a $900 Arctic Blast Sno-Cone machine.

The West Michigan Shoreline Regional Development Commission (WMSRDC) is a federal- and state-designated agency responsible for managing and administrating the homeland security program in Montcalm County and 12 other counties.

The WMSRDC recently purchased and transferred homeland security equipment to these counties - including 13 snow cone machines at a total cost of $11,700.

But Dov Zackheim found it all. Pretty impressive considering how many accountants were killed and accounting records were destroyed in the attacks. Especially the records of investigations into accounting irregularities. One might almost say it was miraculous, or highly suspicious.
