Talkin’ 2 Myself
Eminem released a new CD in June. There is a track on the album titled “Talkin’ 2 Myself.” Sometimes I feel the exact same way:
Can anybody hear me yeah, I guess I keep talking to myself
Feels like I’m going insane, am I the one who’s crazy?
The president recently signed the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act. I might favor this type of reform if the fraudulent payments it intends to target were recovered in a cost-effective manner. But is this law even needed?
Here’s a quote from the White House Blog:
Last year, improper payments by the Federal Government added up to $110 billion.
If a publicly owned corporation misplaced $110 billion dollars, it would be more than reprimanded — it would be bankrupt and out of business.
This legislation shows in unadulterated clarity the inherent flaws of government. The federal agencies responsible for this irresponsible behavior will be fined and face “penalties and other repercussions,” but I wonder who exactly the federal government thinks pays for penalties levied on federal agencies.
And people wonder why consumer confidence is low.
