How the government spent my tax money

So, this year was the year taxes hurt. Mrs. Workshop and I paid somewhere around $24k to the wonderful, loving, KGB . . . er, the IRS. I'm sure the money that we sent in will be well spent by the intelligent bureaucrats in Washington DC on programs and services that will benefit all of humanity . . . .

Umm . . . well, aside from that, I'm sure the honest politicians are hard at work to ensure the money is well spent. . .

I mean, it's not like our president would just flush our money down the toilet, right?

Oh, fuck . . . .

So, in a fit of denial, I have decided I get to determine where my money goes. $24,000 is more than some people make in a year, so I should have a small say in who gets my money, right?

First up, three of these bad boys:
Nothing says "I love you" like a 7.62 mm NATO round delivered to the head by one of the finest soldiers the United States has to offer.

Yes, the Navy SEALs are the baddest group of operators around, and they deserve every gram of the reputation they have earned.

Sniper-grade 7.62mm NATO rounds (M118LR) cost about $2 each. But why stop with three? I've got $24k to spend, so let's buy the whole frakking SEAL team some ammo. At $2 each, that's 12,000 rounds. Enough to keep the SEALs in the sniping business for some time. Go get 'em, boys!
