Since the sequester gets blamed for the closing of White House tours, cutting air traffic controllers, and delayed flights, I must point out stupid spending when government blogs go about advertising their spending as if it were a good thing. So what is it today?
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is spending $3.5 million on conservation projects across the Americas to boost the number of birds. That's not in the U.S. but the Americas.
Who does this include receiving money? Panama, Paraguay, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua.
At some point we need to spend money on people instead of birds. Really, the government needs to stop spending money. But if we are in financial problems we really shouldn't be giving money to other countries to spend on birds. If they want to save the birds they can spend their own tax dollars, not ours!
How did we get here? The government is crying broke, cuts back on industries that makes money ( air travel ), and spends it on birds!? Even if the country didn't have economic problems the government shouldn't be spending money on this, much less sending money to other countries for it.
Face it. Obama and the administration does not care about you.
