do you have the line by line breakdown on expenses? I dont but id really love to see what it is, see what that 800 million is buying

having said that, WHY isnt there a breakdown, line item, for all costs that our government spends?

the IRS will freak out if i miss one little thing but they spend trillions a year and most of us have no idea where our money is actually going

completely missed the point however sure, if you wanna spend your money to try and take money from others, so they can not even give it to you... i see no good reason you should not be able to do so

I was referring more along the lines of how one can opt out of paying the political donations portion of their union dues, i should be able to opt out of non essential taxes and if people want their 5 million dollar new court house, instead of making everyone pay when the old courthouse is doing the job just fine, let people crowdfund it and not raise my taxes.

extrapolate that to NASA, wars, social engineering policy etc.

Its allowing us to put our money where our mouths are

I dont expect taxes to pay for a lot, taxes should be for the basics needed. crowd funding is giving us a chance to do it different, back the things we want done without being forced to pay for the things we dont

the IRS should look into this

thats not entirely true. some ads are welcome

I recent got a new car (well new to me) and one of the things i want to do is get fitted seat covers as the interior is an off white and i am....well a slob

so after looking for a few weeks i havent found anything that fits my needs (fitted, not leather or fake leather, and well made)

well I noticed some ads all of a sudden starting to show up for fitted car seats and eventually i found what i was looking for because of google ads

I will admit it is the first time ive found it useful, but when ads are done right, they are not a bad thing

i didnt know the term either, but after looking it up i agree

when I am on my phone there are 2 types of pages that if i get them, i refuse to go to again

sites with popups that dont get blocked by adblock, no i dont care about what you are trying to sell me, show me what i asked for

the other is "list" sites, where they have a list that might have 10 photos and no (or very little text) yet they want me to load a new page for each item on the list. It is even worse if i can go to the site from a desktop and not have the page split over 10 pages so why do it to me on mobile? I know why (ads) and I dont care. I dont want to a - waste my time clicking next after i look at each slide for 5 seconds, and B i dont want to waste my phones data package on a bunch of ads, that take up more data than the content im looking for to begin with!

you are moving the goalposts now.

the question is is she allowed to destroy documents on a server when documents from the server are being requested to be turned over

you dont get to decide whats personal and whats business, the DOJ (or agency making the request) decides that
