I’ve always wondered if Daffy, or Donald had well. Emm.

Now maybe it’s Scrooge mcDuck? He would tell them where not to spend his money.

Isn’t it amazing that ducks survived this long without college grant seekers knowing all about duck di-ks?

Can we say Government spends $400,000 to” money laundering”? Of course they are doing kickbacks. Who in their right mind would allocate that kind of money for that kind of project?

We always get the stories about government funding really stupid stuff, and wasting out tax dollars, but we NEVER get a link to the final report..That’s what we need..let people read EXACTLY what the $400K, OR $4MILL, paid for..
