    18 MILLION freaking dollars to re-vamp and maintain recovery.gov so we can all see where the "stimulus" money is going? I just heard this on NPR, are they freaking kidding us? Fox News just had this on as well.

    What the fuck takes 18 MILLION dollars to run a website?

    Hmmmm...committees aren't very efficent.

    Rosetta's competitor (a state university sponsored and Federal government funded website) spend $4.4 million to do what we did for less than $100K.

    And no they don't do it nearly as well as we do, either.
