How did This Happen So Fast?
Did anyone besides me wonder how they got all those signs printed and
distributed far and wide, including to all the national parks and cemeteries overseas only eight to ten hours after the government shut down? Analyze this from someone who wants to remain anonymous.
I have worked in the government on and off for over 40 years. During that time I became quite familiar with requisitions, bidding, awarding contracts etc. It is a time consuming process with bean-counters and pencil-necked bureaucrats every step of the way. The simplest request takes months not days or hours.
THINK ABOUT THIS…
In less than 8 hours of the shutdown, miraculously, professionally printed 3X4 foot signs appeared all over the country in the tens of thousands saying- “this [park, facility, etc. with custom logos] closed due to government shutdown.“
There has not been a government shutdown in 17 years. These signs were designed, specifications were determined, signs were then requisitioned, bids were posted and vetted, government contracts were awarded. The materials were then ordered and the signs manufactured then distributed via U.S. Mails or freight companies.
This shutdown was orchestrated and planned well in advance at least 6-8 months ago. Millions of tax dollars were appropriated and spent in this process.
There is probably a paper trail a mile long leading directly to the "Blight" House. And they can't even get the obummer care implemented for folks to get registered for it either, but this sign making thing was a "snap".??????
