I was talking to a good friend the other day. He owns his own business, and is known as one of the best in his field. The Navy approached him and asked him to give them a bid to offer his service to Navy pilots. He suggested that if he did it on a per person basis, he could make a much lower bid. The Navy told him that wouldn't work, that they needed to have a total price year by year. My friend told them that would necessarily make the price go up considerably. The Navy told him that didn't matter, that they had to have a specific ammount for their annual budget.

He relented and gave them the higher bid per their requirements. He is now training Navy pilots in a specific area at a much inflated price that the Navy insisted on paying.

Go figure!

Gubmint cannot ever get rid of waste.

That is the responsibility of "WE THE PEOPLE" and we have tolerated tyranny.
