  1. The acronym for the Federal Office of Personnel Management is OPM. In the world of business, contracts and leases, this acronym stands for “Other Peoples’ Money”

    Gov’t employees are not stealing pens and paperclips, they’re thieving us blind. If all the fraud, waste and abuse of just Federal tax dollars ended tomorrow, we could probably cut our taxes by 25%. Maybe more.

  4. We should contract our airport security to the Israeli’s, they’ve done an excellent job in a far more hostile part of the world.

    It would be more effective and probably far less expensive as well.

  5. I can’t sniff out a bomb either so I should be in line for at least two million!
