Like clockwork, Democrats and Republicans collude before Christmas to bust all budget control mechanisms and pass a so-called omnibus bill that spends trillions on pork and pet projects many of which no one has ever heard of before, but thankfully we avoided a government shut down because the world cannot function without bee-friendly highways built… Continue reading This and every holiday season, the government is a gift that keeps on giving to itself at your expense
