The little-known USDA business enterprise of Invasive Species -- based via President and humble peanut farmer Jimmy Carter -- wish to reassure you that they rank one of the best and cost-effective places of work in the sprawling federal paperwork. for many years, lower than Administrative Director Adam Humphrey and his "strategic disengagement" technique, the company has epitomized vigilance opposed to the transparent and current probability of noxious weeds. Humphrey's checklist of victorious inertia faces merely stumbling blocks. the 1st is truth; the second one is the loud critic who dares to query the magic in the back of the Agency's luck: Nicholas Bader. previously referred to as President Reagan's "bloody correct hand," Bader is on an obsessive quest to trim the fats from the federal price range.
Full of oddball characters who make clear the day-by-day operations of Beltway minions, THE WEED supplier showcasesa international during which federal budgets balloon each year, the place a occupation will be outfitted upon the ability of rationalizing astronomical costs, and the place the observe 'accountability' sends roars of laughter via DC workplace structures. That's lifestyles contained in the federal business enterprise of Invasive Species... and it will probably sound suspiciously just like your truth.
