#019: Government Waste
Military tanks that the army neither wanted nor needed: $181 million.
The infamous Alaskan “Bridge To Nowhere”: $398 million.
An 18,000-seat high school football stadium that was shut down: $60 million.
Scientific grants to study snail sex and duck genitalia: $1.26 million. ($880,000 + $385,000)
Being berated for not wanting your taxes to fund crap like that: Priceless!
There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's taxes. Now pay up or GTFO!
