The scientific studies aren’t useless, it’s just that a private company could do them more efficiently and without using taxpayer dollars. Also, I was contracted on a base with mostly government employees and the financial waste knew no bounds! One of the “govies” was fired after the THIRD time they caught him watching porn. People barely worked 5 hour days, since they arrived late, took 2 hour lunches, and left early. And, because it was an engineering program and technology was quite necessary, people would misplace their work laptop and simply order another one. That’s all fine, except that EVERYONE did that multiple times and when they offered to order me a second work laptop, I declined and went on a hunt for the “lost” ones. I found about 4 computers per employee inside the building. Ugh.
