Folks, if you are a regular visitor AND have been paying attention, you should have noticed two things:
1. The blog posts have been few and far between lately.
2. For the most part all I do is bitch and complain about stuff.
Number one is a direct result of number two. A long time ago my daddy told me something very important:
Son, if all you do is complain, you aren’t part of the solution…you are a big part of the problem.
I have not been happy with my posts on this blog for some time now, mainly because of that quote…I have been a big part of the problem by just bitching and not offering possible solutions. Oh sure…I have thrown a bone towards finding solutions by pointing you folks to that widget over there in the sidebar and telling you to use it to contact your congress-critters, but I’ve just told you to complain about problems, not offer solutions.
In other words, I’ve suggested you ought to be a part of the problem too, by just bitching, like I have.
As of today, that changes.
The first, and most easily seen, change is cosmetic. “The Coffee Club” show is changing to “The Tinfoil Hat Club”. Many of you have suspected for a while that I ran around wearing a tinfoil hat so I figured I ought to make it official…LOL.
The next, and important, change is a shift in show content. Going forward the posts will still bitch and complain, but they will do two more things as well. They will offer what I think are common sense solutions to specific problems, and they will offer specific actions YOU can take to make those solutions happen (if you agree with them, of course…LOL).
With that said, let’s take a fresh look at government waste, and what we can actually DO about it. We’ll start with a look at a timely example…the GSA’s waste that has been in the news for the last 10 days or so.
