More Symbolism over Substance

Well, hanging up pink ribbons for a pretty much hopeless cause is one thing but when you start spending taxpayer money for more symbolism over substance that is quite another.

That is exactly what happened at a Florida unemployment agency when $14,000 was spent to provide 6000 red capes to unemployed people.

This was part of their "Cape-A-Bility Challenge" in an attempt to "connect" with the community. I am sure all those unemployed people really did FEEL BETTER after getting those capes.

Yes, all this nonsense was funded by the sweat of your brow, boys and girls. Just think of how many useful things could have been purchased with the 14 grand! Or better yet, give it back to the taxpayers! What a concept!
