I am a software engineer and I have worked for private sector AND government agencies.

I cen tell you fromexperience that EVERY govt agency i worked for could easily withstand a 50% across the board budget cut and not miss a step. I have never met more incompetant, lazy, tax wasters than at any govt. agency I worked for.

There was once place that had a database administrator who did not know how to turn on the database, or even do simple bacup. A SENIOR grade level programm who spent 6 months trying to write a computer program that took me 2 days. And the worst case I saw was $250,000 the spent with a company to move data from one database table to another (a 2-hour job worth about $100, we tried to tell them)

"But the contract was already signed" they said, and the company practically admitted they were overcharges, and said they would make it up by offering unlimmitted tech suport (no tech support was or would ever be needed after installation) so they went ahead with a project they new was $249,900 overpriced.

And the administrators kept buying software from one single company although that same company has yet to deliver any working software.

More of the "paying for tax cuts" dribble I have seen the Houston Chronicle op-eds echo over and over gain.

If anyone is anywhere near Houston, they ought to join us in Kemah for a lessons learned event. The organizers are trying to set these events up to HEAR from the voters more than to SPEAK to them. Let's be a part of fixing things

Later that night Kemah has a christmas boat parade!
