My inbox is swamped these days with politicians telling us how nasty the 'other side' is. It's all just obfuscation and spin and ends up giving us the crap and clueless behavior that leads to a seventeen trillion dollar deficit.
I look forward to POGO's posts because they tell me straight. I lookforward to seeing how they grow with our support.
I'm very pleased to see POGO out there keeping checks on our run away government and politicians that care for corporations, lobbyists, and special interest groups only. Keep up the good work POGO!
POGO is tireless in fighting multiple, ongoing, trillion-dollar-plus military-industrial-congressional boondoggles
POGO provides an invaluable service to all citizens. Their deep investigations and clear-sighted reporting sheds much needed light on government waste and inadequate oversight. I strongly encourage anyone concerned about Civil Rights, Government & Public Administration, Public Finance, Taxation & Monetary Policy support The Project on Government Oversight.
POGO exposed misconduct at a Federally Funded R&D Center that spends hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funds annually, with no competition for their work, and oversight by government officials who are sometimes former employees of the FFRDC! The FFRDC staff is largely former government employees, and they have top level insider connections with the federal government. Without groups like POGO to investigate and watch over them--taxpayers will be abused.
I HAVE LEARNED THAT THE LDS MORMON CHURCH IS A FALSE CHURCH ITS A SEX CULT AND ITS ALL ABOUT CONTROLING YOUR LIFE AND GETING YOUR MONEY
The Project on Government Oversight is the one place I can depend on to get un-biased accounts of what money the Federal government is spending and where it is being wasted. They have exposed the waste of taxpayer's money of billions on contracts to build a plane which has been flawed from the start. They expose corruption in the Federal government and violations of the Constitution. For years I have been reading their reports and contacting my members of Congress about the situations. Every citizen of the US should read their research!
POGO keeps me informed about our Federal government in a totally objective manner. I am continually amazed at the high quality of their research and their trustworthiness. I am very grateful to them for doing what must be a very difficult job.
This is a cause worth giving to! They actually do what they say and are helping to bring to LIGHT the corruption in the Congress and the Democratic party!!!
POGO gives me the facts/News that I will never find on the Cable News Shows of today. POGO is not owned or directed by Big Corporate Money so they can tell me the truth without upsetting their donors. They have and share the facts about Government waste, safety and health issues. POGO is on our side - Please help fund them.
POGO is a national treasure. In my estimation, It's clear-eyed alertness to governmental waste, malpractice and corruption has no equal.It's investigations are important, and its reports very judicious. In short, they provide a great service to U.S. citizens, both private and public.

POGO provides a great service for U.S. citizens. This organization investigates public-realm activities that are wasteful and/or corrupt, and its findings are often the drivers of corrective action. POGO is smart, scrupulous, evidence-based, and non-partisan. To me, POGO embodies the best features of democratic governance.
POGO does an amazing job of tracking management, contracting and procurement issues in the federal government. No one else tracks these issues so closely and thoroughly. I rely on the Project on Government Oversight to provide the necessary information for me to function as an informed and involved citizen. I have contacted my Congressmen and Senators, as well as the President and various departments, boards and commissions based on information I have read in POGO's reports. No other organization does this in such a comprehensive way.
When I want to find out the truth about what the government is doing, or not doing as the case may be, I always turn to POGO. They offer hard hitting truths about the government. They show where the weaknesses are, where the lack of transparency is and who is not doing their job. I liken POGO to the canary in the mine; without them and their non-partisan oversight of our government, things could really blow up.
POGO is one of my most trusted sources for news. The mass media no longer funds investigative journalism, and POGO fills that vacuum.
In this day of corporations being able to sue governments for loss of profits, we definitely need organizations like the Project on Government Oversight. To the extent that corporations own most Congress people, we need POGO to track what those Congress people are doing to our democracy.
Few organizations can serve liberals and conservatives - and do it well! Their central message that we can ALL do better really appeals to the patriots of our country who are not blinded by partisanship.
Soulful, patriotic, factual, in depth, concise, relevant, experienced, totally pro constituent for all constituents, accountable, without bias or fear.
Love them and depend on them.
Most grateful for them...
I've been a regular reader for years, It is one of the best source of facts about government corruption around. The F-35 coverage is infuriating, and one hundred percent on target. Keep up the good work.
Simply the only place to keep current on Government waste. Best articles are on the F35.
The Project on Government Oversight has provided me with important background information about issues I need to know about to be an aware citizen. It is one of the few organizations that follows whistle-blower suppression, Government purchasing procedures, and legislation that ails to protect the public. I have been able to write informed letters to my representatives after reading POGO's blogs.
No organization keeps me updated on ways to improve our government like POGO. It is essential to keeping our democracy healthy because it improves transparency.
POGO Holds the Government in the sunshine for all concerned Citizens to see. Thank you.
There will always be those people that despite the personal risk to their physical and professional well-being will expose government corruption and fraud. If you choose to do so make sure it is with an organization like Project On Government Oversight because they will insure you do not end up in jail.
At times it would seem that we are living the last days of Rome, self absorption in our politicians and disdain for anything Washington. It is refreshing to see the tireless work these people do day in day out. There is hope for our country, but only if more "general members of the public" engage themselves in the process. I believe POGO is one of those organizations that is positioned to do just that...
POGO is a powerful counterbalance to the corporate lobbying forces that overshadow our ability, as individuals, and as employees of government funded institutions/contractors, to be heard in Washington DC. Indeed, POGO speaks truth to power and, a such, is a threat to those who consider "public service" little more than a license to steal, meaning to reward themselves and their donors at the expense of the legitimate needs of our republic, founded on the principal that serving the needs of its people was to come above all else which, in today's world, if often the exception rather than rule. My opinion of POGO is rooted in my firsthand experience, as a person who blew the whistle on fraudulent activity occurring at a world renowned federally funded nuclear weapons facility located in Los Alamos, New Mexico. POGO provided a shield of legitimacy and support that enabled me to survive the ordeal and, for that, I will be forever grateful. www.losalamosdiary.com
As our judicial and political arena decays into ruin with each day, under the growing weight and the corrupting influence of money and corporate greed, organizations like POGO are a glimmer of hope in the darkness of despair that now engulfs our democracy. It's a shameless time we live in, full of scam artists and charlatans who could care less about the world they leave behind. POGO is leading the fight of resistance against these forces, for us . . . for our children and their children . . . for ALL future generations. www.losalamosdiary.com
