Government Pork: Quite an Expensive Pig

$1.4 billion (that's a "B") for federal employees to attend conferences. (Read more here.)

For example, $17 million for the 2004 Bankok International AIDS conference, later judged as "irrelevant" -- enough money to treat 1,500 HIV positive individuals for one year.

At a different page here, we get the following from Michelle Malkin:

$1,401,104,263 spent on employee and representative trips and conferences over the last five years by the federal government. They list them in detail.

Warning: The fainthearted will swoon.
