    just not to forget what's going on which is "Though the recent budget deal keeps the government open, the 2018 appropriations bill won’t pass until March 23rd, almost halfway through the fiscal year. Once it passes, federal agencies will have to rush to spend any additional one-year money before it expires on Oct. 1. For the many programs getting budget increases, the challenge will be efficiently spending whatever the extra amount is about the CR level. For new-start programs, however, where the CR level is zero, they’ll have to spend all their one-year money in the next six months."

    a billion dollars for the "bean counters" to tell us, we can't afford to spend anymore money,, hell, the "Honey Badger" tells me that everyday! for nuthin! I think I'll loan her to the USN for a full top to bottom review, and only charge em 10,000,000... that would get them to reality, and she could do it too, but might scare em to death! the "Honey Badger" just don't care!
