1. Amazing how politicians juggle the numbers but not the economic reality behind them

Efficiency. Use of taxpayer funds. I see things I believe are questionable, and hear about a few in the press.

State use of vehicles. Limousines for legislators. I have seen state cars in Big Box retail stores, and state heavy equipment on private property. Whether these are just using a long lunch hour to visit relatives or friends, or something a little more like actual waste of state-paid hours, I have no idea. I dismiss it as 'employees are gonna be employees' and make their jobs tolerable. I dunno.

If any governor actually approached fiscal problems and said let's find inefficiencies, let's root out wasted taxpayer resources and try to produce more with a little less, he'd be out of office fast.
