    that's right, folks...
    While we're fighting over which horrible decision to make on a president, we're being raped by the government.
    And if any of you think Trump is going to do anything about this, I've got a bridge to sell you

    (CNN)-

    The US Army made trillions of dollars of accounting mistakes and often did not have the receipts or invoices needed to support figures in its budget, according to a scathing Pentagon report.

    The audit, conducted by the Defense Department's Office of Inspector General, found that the Army erroneously made $2.8 trillion in adjustments in the third quarter of 2015 to its Army general fund - one of the main accounts used to fund the service. The error amount skyrocketed to $6.5 trillion for all of last year, the report said.
    The June report, first disclosed by Reuters on Friday, found "unreliable" data was used to prepare the financial statements, leading to the possibility that the Army's finances were "materially misstated."

    as a contract spec for the air force, i had to account for every penny spent. to the penny. i have no idea what these clowns are doing but they need to fire a few generals.

    one problem with being a military procurement person is that when the base commander says to do something, you do it! or else! you figure out how to justify it later.

    just like lifelong beerocrats, some people throw away tax money like it was play money.

    It's true, our paper isn't backed by anything real. They should mint a 20T coin and pay the debt.

    Remember, this is all poor people's fault. Poor people are draining all the resources

    All I hear about is our depleted, underfunded military. Clearly more money will solve the problem

    Yawn...
    Yeah, all these shenanigans started with Obama. :rolleyes:
    That's my point, this is a systemic problem with our government.
    Doesn't matter who's in the big chair.
    It's the pentagon and the federal reserve and the big banks that really call the shots.
    But keep playing their game

    Unaccounted monies is what the dot gov uses to pay for shady as fuck shit. Payouts. Payoffs. Contract work. Shit in the shadows. Government building / collapsing.

    And while we can't account for trillions, we are slowly being bought by China. Our businesses, lands and homes. For cash!

    America isn't America anymore

    The last time the Pentagon admitted that they lost a few trillion dollars was Sept 10 2001.

    This is what happens when you have Yolanda in charge of the books. Comes in late, takes 3 hour lunch, leaves at 2 for nail appointment, then leaves the office by 4 to beat the traffic. This is how a lot of government workers in DC spend their day.

    Nothing to see here move along.

    The problem is any time you to try to question or hold accountable the military industrial complex spending you will be labelled as not being patriotic or they will fear monger about how many jobs will be lost if anything is touched.

    I'm sure it is in alternate books somewhere, money is likely funneled into things they don't want us to know about.
