My company sits on the brink because, as a federal contractor, I am having trouble getting work in the new government fiscal year that begins tomorrow because the lame butts in Congress failed to pass a budget this year! Even with massive majorities in the House and Senate the elitists in Congress ran out of town and left the government to run on a ‘Continuing Resolution” (CR).
The problem with CR’s is they freeze all spending to last year’s levels. So if a project was to start this year, or was to go from design (low level of effort) to development (peak effort) it can’t under the CR. No new work is authorized, no increases in spending are authorized. Work that should be shutting down is stuck with money it can’t use. And now we learn the Federal Government is going to replace EVERY BLOODY STREET SIGN in the nation because some bureaucrat did not like the damn FONT!
The city will change the lettering on every single street sign – at an estimated cost of about $27.5 million – because the feds don’t like the font.
Street names will change from all capital letters to a combination of upper and lower case on roads across the country thanks to the pricey federal regulation, officials said Wednesday.
There are 3 families trying to make a living from our little micro-company. Our hopes of growing as we did last year are now replaced with prayers we keep ourselves afloat each month. And these yahoos spend $27.5 million in New York City alone on this madness! We could operate for over 20 years on that kind of money. Please lord, let us throw these useless tools out and save this nation and its people.
BTW, if anyone who can afford it would be willing to send a donation to keep the site up another month or two I would appreciate it very much. I would love to be able to cover this historic election at least, before we start closing shop. Thanks in advance!
