The Government is Robbing the Taxpayers

As if further proof that the "Stimulus Money" being funded by US taxpayers was a total waste -take a look at the current numbers for just the signs produced by the government reminding us that our Stimulus $$ is hard at work.
ABC News - (and other news organizations) have released the figures. What is most shocking is that main stream ABC news actually publicized them!
According to recovery.gov the signs cost $15 million dollars and produced 17 new jobs. (Cost effective? I think not).
AND one sign alone leading to Dulles Airport cost $10,000 just to install!
Is this signs of an economic recovery to you? These are the costs that our government has paid for these signs. And that means the few of us that do pay taxes are the ones paying for these signs....
Virginia, Vermont and Arizona DO NOT sanction these signs. But, good old, NH does.

Oh, and lastly, these signs must be posted and rules adhered to, including:

a sign template informing the public the projects had been, "Funded By: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Barack Obama, President."

How is that for government corruption? I guess that erecting a statue of Barack Obama on the town green will be next.
