Yes I have so what. Government steals money and then wastes it away. Private business does not.

The real problem is government is doing things it should not. Then because they do things they should not do, then they spend money they should not spend.

Tell me why does a government worker need to go to training or a conference? Just have the training in house, same with a conference. Why does the government have to send people to another state or country?

In 1983, I spent a few months TDY in Baghdad. I could have stayed in the luxurious Al Rashid hotel where all the big shots stayed and was heavily damaged during “Shock and Awe.” I chose to stay at the “Flea” Baghdad Towers. It was a dive. I ate most of my meals standing up at schwarma stands on Saddoon Street, plus a lot of Ramen noodles that I had sent over. I pocketed a lot of cash on that trip. A few months after that, I was TDY in N’Djamena, Chad, where the per diem was $30 to cover “lodging” (toilet seat not included) and crepes for dinner. Didn’t pocket a lot of cash there.

I know of a government employee that has a VERY GOOD second income off of traveling to conferences and training.
