Why does the USG pay people to "like" the State Department on FaceBook.
Near the end of a commercial flight, ssomeone usually announces something to this effect: "We know you had a variety of choices to bring you to this destination; and we want to thank you for choosing (fill in the blank) Airlines."

Okay, once I was on a flight that was so turbulent, they ran out of barf bags early on, and the attendant was literally laughing out loud when he made the announcement. But, that is besides the point.

I don't have a choice of State Departments. Why is anyone spending my money to try to sell me on this one?

3. P.S. Another example of there being money for everything, except
"useless eaters."

We probably pay people to like other agencies, too.

Teh stupid. It burns.

4. My sentiments exactly.
Like the nation Nazi Germany in so many tangible ways.

5. Including people who are within the nation, see what is happening, know it is
wrong, but have no clue about how to stop it.
