So just how clueless can you get?

Well, when it comes to government officials spending taxpayer dollars, there's no limit.

And so it is that I'd like to invite every. single. Pierce. County. official whose clueless behavior drew them to spend more than $30,000 attending golf tournaments on the public's dime, to quit teeing up and come on down.

Here's the explanation that's being offered:

Next month Pierce County will host the U.S. Amateur golf championship.

In 2015, the U.S. Open will be held in Pierce County.

So of course that means that county officials should take on the arduous task of cruising down to Pebble Beach and other big time golf tourney's to gather information on "how things are done."

With not enough money to pay the bills for Pierce County programs and services, isn't it amazing that there's enough cash to send county bureaucrats scampering around the country to watch how golf tournaments are set up!

Okay, so some $30,000 may be but a drop in the budget bucket, but don't these jokers get that there's principles and ethics and image involved here?


They're just too clueless.

And that's why this "Schrammie" is for them.
