    This thread is not to say that government is completely useless, I understand very well that without national highway system, or without tax payer funded government/military invented internet we would be way behind,

    But this thread is to list all the idiotic jobs government creates just to keep some idiots occupied and happy:

    I go first, you list what else you come up with
    - For example to collect fees from small businesses, such as $370/year food serving lisence, some jobs government creates are to go to Alaska and watch white bears poop...

    Your turn...

    EPA's testing every month of cow hoof's dust.
    how much does this cost the farmers for the testing and how much is consumers paying for this stupid useless testing?
    Can you imagine what a persons look would be when they ask you, what is your job?
    I work for the government going out every month to farms and test how much dust is kicked up by cow hoofs.

    Looked it up...........Kind of seems weird, but one has to think about how much we give African countries for AIDS/HIV care and wonder if maybe we should try teaching prevention methods. ;)
