    I always love how people assume "their" tax dollars are paying for something other than the interest on our governments debt. :D

    lol @ farmermac every govt. worker uses a computer. Some work from home or out in the field like they do at most jobs. So either a new computer or iPad. Which is cheaper. Cheaper to maintain? you do the math. Last time I checked a govt official they were using Win 97 :eek:

    He meant 07. The gov't probably won't allow anything newer until 2014.
