Good government only happens when the people working in it do their jobs, and do them well.
I am providing a service that many people obviously value.
I can't help thinking if she - the director of a government agency - is this ignorant about what funding is available and where the money comes from - how often lower-level bureaucrats must give wrong answers when people are looking for help to start a business.
One of the worst things to come out of the Consumer Protection Board's misleading claims is the impression that government resources are to hard to get and just aren't available for regular people like you and I.
There are many programs specifically aimed at helping people in poverty start a business.
There are thousands and thousands of free programs available for people of any income level.
What I do in my book is let people know about these programs.
We all have to stand by our life's work as the true test of what we have done for the world.
As I've said before, free money scams are a problem.
I've been giving free money seminars for the troops at Walter Reed Hospital and one of the Iraqi War Vets realized that the military wouldn't pay for the dental work he needed.
Many scammers are only using personal checks for payment because they can take the money and run.
Teachers can go on cruises with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and anyone can spend the summer as a volunteer in a National Parks and even earn money doing it.
Government workers often get a bad rap, but it's rare for them to receive much appreciation when government works.
I've been bragging for over 25 years that my first New York Times bestseller was a book I copied from the U.S. Government Printing Office!
If the government did a good job of publicizing this information, my products wouldn't sell.
