    I notice the Gov. contractors are filling up the parking lot hurrying into the building two by two to spy on Americans in AMERICA...nice work...great job...continue to do absolutly nothing worth while. And do not attack the US homeland like you did in Boston..like you did in the Navy yard...watch this blog start filling up now that the big bucks are being stuffed into the lazy US Gov. employees pockets again...with a free/paid in full 16 days off. That was my idea not yours & I don't get paid Mother-fers.
