It’s bad enough that S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s incompetent, scandal-ravaged, deficit-running Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW) is taking yet another taxpayer-funded vacation. But you won’t believe the ridiculousness we’re subsidizing in conjunction with this boondoggle …
According to the SCDEW brochure for this event – obtained exclusively by FITS – the conference being held at the luxurious Westin Hilton Head Island Resort and Spa will feature a “Technology Petting Zoo.”
Wait … what?
Come play in the Technology Zoo to touch, fell and ask questions about all the latest technology devices (e-readers, tablets, etc.). Also experience play-way devices and Talking Book Services devices for those with limited vision or those who are totally blind.
Yeah … so when they’re not working on their sun tans, we’re basically paying for this agency’s bureaucrats to fondle iPads, Nooks and Kindles.
Gotta love that Tea Party leadership, people!
