".........The green office isnt merely a desk and telephone tucked away in the dark corner of a nondescript government building. Its a substantial undertaking, with all the luxury, bells and whistles of a bureaucracy that means business. Eric K. Shinseki, who resigned as secretary in the wake of the VA scandal of the sin of omission, traveled the country to boast of the green initiative. In one instance, he traveled to Massachusetts to flick the switch at a half-million-dollar windmill project at the Massachusetts National Cemetery. Nationally, he said, VA continues to expand its investment in renewable sources of energy to promote our nations energy independence, save taxpayer dollars, and improve care for our veterans and their families.
VA facilities have become littered with every scheme to banish carbon dioxide short of requiring visitors to hold their breath. Calverton National Cemetery spent $742,034 on solar panels.

Because the oceans are turning to acid.
I know cause Leonardo DiCrappio told me so.
Why strange? The won has much more respect for “green things” rather than simly is umbrella holders.
I guess every one of the tenants HAS reduced their carbon-footprint to ZERO!
Nobody in government understands the concept of Opportunity Costs.

Crazy crap right here.
An agency that can’t even come close to fulfilling its basic mission is into stuff like this.
That says it all about how bad government is failing and how ridiculously ridiculous it is.
I’d say this is a prime example of support to claim total illegitimacy on our fed.
There are some sick obsessed idiots out there.
Funny memory I have, it was of the Chicago Bulls last championship, after the clinching game DiCaprio was in Bulls locker room and a local reporter, Corey McPherrin, tried to talk to Leo but he blew him off. McPherrin then, in remarking to the anchor's back at the studio, mentioned how cool it was that "Leonardo DiCrapprio" was there. My mom thought he did it on purpose.
DiCrappeo is an arrogant turd, I can tell just by looking at him.
But, DAMN, does he score HAWT babes...
Maybe he can give Toby a few pointers?
Money and fame buy any piece of trash looking for a free ride. Always has, always will. Why do you think so many white women hook black big bucks athletes? Or men twice their ages? Sugar daddies.
WOW!!! You don’t leave much meat on the bone! Yes, you’re right.
