    In a Savings Shocker, the Government Discovers That Paper Has Two Sides - WSJ.com

    OH MY GAWWWD!

    Paper actually has two sides that you can use?????

    Just imagine, children, if government can discover this, what's in store for the future???

    Aren't you so glad that you're alive today and you didn't have to live in a time where there was only one side to a piece of paper?

    What difference does it make? According to the folks in Congress, they don't read either side.

    uh oh. Now they are going to have to replace all their copiers with machines that do two sides. Let me guess - cost $1 trillion.

    Leave it to a right-wing publication to distort the contents of its own piece. There are many small cost-savings means listed in the article. I guess the WSJ hasn't figured out yet that many of its more, shall we say unenlightened readership only looks at headlines.

    That said, I think its great when baby steps that seem irrelevant suddenly turn into big bottom line cost savers. Why anyone would fault that is beyond me. Happens every day in the private sector.

    OH MY GAWWWWWD

    The government has cut its budget to the bone.

    Who will stop the bleeding?

    Please is there a trauma surgeon in the house????

    the government has slashed the budget by .006%!!!!!!!!


    Oh dear, oh my how will we be able to get by??????

    why save billions or trillions when you can use both sides of a piece of paper?

    Go change your underwear. Having a shitfit over stuff like this will put you six feet under before your time. If you REALLY want to freak out about waste in the billions that goes ignored, look to the Pentagon. At least your early death will be justified.

    Waste at the Pentagon Maggie is equal to about one fith of the total waste in the whole budget most of which shouldn't be federal issue to begin with.

    By the way what I find comical about this is that it took them this long to figure it out. It's not like we haven't had copiers that could do front and back for about two decades now.
