Are you ready for this? The federal government has spent more than $3 million (of taxpayers' money) on a study of drunken monkeys! Why?! To study if drinking alcohol in excess causes gamblers to lose more money. What?! People with half a brain know that! Yes! Yes, drunken gamblers are going to lose more money! And what about animal cruelty... forcing monkeys to drink too much alcohol?! What's really sad is that the study is still going on! I wish the government would stop monkeying around with our money!!
The Alaska Public Offices Commission ordered Fairbanks Mayor John Eberhart to pay a $37.50 fine for breaking a petty state election law. Since the city government is obligated to defend the sued mayor, it has so far spent over $7000 in taxpayers' money defending him, and it's only going to increase! That sounds like our government... spending $10,000 to get $37! Oh, my bad, I forgot about the 50 cents.
