The Government Challenge Contests & More Taxpayer Dollars To Be Wasted

Now why would the government be running contests when these are private sector jobs and services that are being requested? Wouldn’t this also create real jobs and contracts? Check out what I found on Walmart Classifieds this evening:



Well now, as I am as curious as all get out, I pop on to the Challenge.gov site directly. Lo and behold there are several to many contests listed and some crazy monies (these of course belong to the taxpayers) to be awarded to winners? Like this one

Bright Tomorrow Lighting Prize

Created by U.S. Department of Energy

The L Prize competition will substantially accelerate America’s shift from inefficient, dated lighting products to innovative, high-performance products. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the L Prize is the first government-sponsored tec…

$15,000,000
in prizes

Then I spot at the bottom of the various contest pages this note:

Challenge.gov is an official website of the U.S. government.
Administered by the U.S. General Services Administration
in partnership with Challenge Post.

So I click on the partner ChallengePost.com and open it up to see more contests including this one that just blows the mind Apps for Development Posted by the World Bank, Washington, DC.

FEATURED CHALLENGE

Apps for Development

The World Bank is challenging the public to create innovative software applications that move us a step closer toward solving some of the world’s most pressing problems.

The World Bank WANTS
YOUR APPS

AND

$45,000 HAS BEEN PLEDGED TO
WHOEVER SOLVES IT

I see all of this several ways:

Culling for cheap ideas
Avoiding creating jobs
Building a data base of creative innovators
Taking advantage of today’s youth
Buying votes through “hope” of fame and fortune
Avoiding bids by the government and just who will be winning these “contests”

Talk about backdooring and potential nepotism to friending awards, I’m just saying!

All On The Taxpayers Backs, the government spending money but providing no jobs… again!

What Kind of U.S. Military is Obama Running… or Running Into the Ground?

The theater of operations is supervised by a “Loose Lips” megaphone in Petraeus. I would love to play Poker with him!

Bogus POTUS states today “… As Americans we are not… and never will be… at war with Islam and really shows his lack of education, breeding, and understandingvery purposefully. By the way Obogus, America understands that you assume Christians are the real terrorists but…. where is our military serving and what is the predominant religion in that location?

So there’s lots of uproar over “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the progressive  liberal brains rattling loose over the subject, Why? Progressively recessive Liberals are hypocritical “PACIFISTS?” so why would they give a rat’s behind on any issue within a military theater and it’s composition?

When will the Progressive Liberals demand a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” for a male/female clarification upon enlistment? What’s fair is fair! Oh, but the female uniforms are getting tailored for female-cut differences, when will the “Gay & Lesbian” uniforms be tailored to accommodate them or the bisexual’s personalityagain, what’s fair is fair! When is enough foolishness, enough? Is it a fashion show or a military action? The only runway for uniforms is the one planes land on!

Speaking of fashion and foolishness, what the heck is thisReport: Army Developing Brain-Control Helmets? Is it another fashion item, brain scrambler to increase “Battle Fatigue” cases, or a potential “Sleeper” creator? Inquiring un-helmeted minds want to know!

Patriotic Duty

Presidential Line of Succession

When the Bogus POTUS and his Running Bait are removed and most likely imprisoned for the Usurpation of the Office of the President, along with all of his other appointees, nominees, minions, and thugs… “We the People” must have the very best, of the very best, positioned in the majority of the House of Representatives. The new and valid President of the United States of America will either be the “Speaker of the House” or the legal ticket of McCain/Palin. It depends on the When!

Thy Time is Nigh

If War is Hell Then The Release of U.S. War Logs is the Eternal Fire!

War is Hell

dj3minem | October 03, 2006

This movie is dedicated to all the soldiers who lost their lives in a war.

How did the Afghanistan War Logs get loose to begin with? There was plenty of advanced notice of their debut! They are showing up all over the internet. What kind of slip shot government is the Bogus POTUS running? Can this in any way be good for military morale, their families, or the American citizenry? Our dirty laundry is permitted unrestrained airing and viewing from the South Pole to the North Pole and everywhere in between. Why? And we have another inaction that is destructive to these United States of America! Good SLOB Obama! What price will be paid for this? Is this another purposeful engineered crisis?
