Friday Feedback: 'Potty Parity', Duncan's proposed March Madness ban and stimulus fraud

By Ed O'Keefe

A sampling of some of the comments from this week's most popular Federal Eye items. The thoughts expressed below do not represent the views of The Federal Eye or The Washington Post:

Regarding thousands of complaints about economic stimulus fraud...

Awesome, they waste trillions on the so-called stimulus and then waste millions investigating themselves. What a racket. -- corrections
It's amazing with all those billions of bucks flowing around, that only just 147 findings surfaced. -- tropedoabad
The thing to remember here is that it is the American citizen and taxpayer that are the subject of these investigations and are "wasting taxpayer dollars," not the Government. -- ggilby1

Regarding Education Secretary Arne Duncan's call to ban low-performing colleges and universities from the March Madness college basketball tournament...

What a waste. Children are dying and this is what our Secretary is worried about? Sick. -- corrections
This is just dumb because the numbers include players who left school early to go to the NBA as not graduating. If any college student could leave school to make a million dollars in their chosen profession, how many would stay and get their degree? Not many, and one can always return to school and get a degree. That doesn't excuse, for instance, the incredibly low figures for Maryland, but it does mean such figures can't be used as some kind of absolute standard. -- TheFingerman
I am getting sick of these government types thinking they know best for us. If we do not stop this regulation of our daily lives we will end up not having any freedom of choice at all. The government should do for the people what the people can not do for themselves and leave the rest of it alone. -- Philwamock

Regarding a new Congressional push for "Potty Parity" in federal buildings..

I've lived in CA before & after this law went into affect & believe me, it is GREAT. I have no problem with going into a busy men's bathroom (with my husband as escort) and using a stall when there are 100+ women in line, but I know many women are not comfortable with that. It's so nice to not have to wait ages in line (or tell my husband to go ahead without me--I'll call when I'm finished...eventually). I wish this sort of thing didn't have to be legislated, but it does need to be--and I'm all for it! -- BellaGertrude
Typical of politicians to think of nothing but crap. -- blackforestcherry
"Potty Parity"...What a complete waste of time. We don't need a law fir this. The fact is, women should be able to utilize stalls in men's rooms and men should be permitted to utilize stalls in women's room...if and when the need arises. -- PracticalIndependent
