Getting the drift yet?

Now I propose we reinstate slavery. Forget the race crap though, we only enslave the criminal and sociopathic element worldwide to do our lower bidding, or building if you like. You understand don't you?
Are you asking me to come clean your house?

And all the mess without yet considering the New Health Plan. One of the main bipartisan agreement points is that since Work is Healthy, let's Put the Sick To Work. This will take more than the crisis total does today.

B.O. has it all figured it out.

The Legislature just cut my program. I think I'll be back with the private sector by year's end.

It is working on everyone. I have not talked to a single PM who has not had a minimum 25% cut.

I was contacted earlier this week about a an annual subscription to a database of all the new contracts being let for federal and state government. While the contract info is easy to get, this service has all the stakeholders and contact information associated with it. It is about $10K per year for ALL states and is interesting that it provides primes and subs. Not a bad deal, all around.
