Per the Washington Times:

Months after President Obama urged federal agencies last year to cut wasteful spending, the U.S. Department of State paid $3,814 to fill an order of Jack Daniel’s whiskey for gratuities at one of its many overseas embassies.

The booze buy wasn’t unusual.

Last year alone, the State Department sent taxpayers tabs totaling nearly $300,000 for alcoholic beverages — about twice as much compared to the previous year . . .

So, the questions is will this prompt a “Booze, isn’t a BFD” (HT: Nutter) t-shirt?

Seriously though, this is why the government cannot be trusted with our money. It is one of thousands of examples of waste. They desire for us to give what we have earn or saved to them, just as Judas did, under the guise of giving to the poor when in reality most politicians are nothing but thieves and liars, taking only for themselves.
