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.
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.
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...
I JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT AS A POGO SUPPORTER I TRULY AM GLAD AND PLEASED FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO TRULY CARE ABOUT THE WELFARE OF OTHERS, ESPECIALLY GROUPS THAT HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY AND/OR CURRENTLY OPPRESSED IN ANY WAY!!! SO FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AS LONG AS YOU ARE AROUND, POGO!!!
I love POGO for getting the facts that those of us in the field need. The organization is a vital education tool, especially with regards to military defense budgeting and contracting. As a dedicated cancer activist on the national level, POGO provides keen insights into military waste and fraud that help me better approach the federal budgeting process.
I " entired" my thoughts in a previous entry which I lost. Why I don't know. It is 02:30 here on the west coast & I am not going to chase it down. I will pick up the pen soon.
The Centre for Defence Information at POGO is the most credible source on airpower issues. For any serious analyst of military aviation, POGO is what the Federalist Papers are for any serious student of the US Constitution: The most authoritative source of information. Their analysis is based exclusively on open-sources information. Pierre Sprey, Dan Grazier, Winslow Wheeler, Franklin C. Spinney, Thomas Christie and Col. Chet Richards (U.S. Air force, ret.), are one of the most knowledgeable and the most credible aircraft analysts in the world, with decades of experience, hundreds of peer-reviewed publications, and academic degrees under their belt. POGO are not biased and don’t have their own agenda. As for the Lockheed Martin's failed F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, its defects are so numerous, so publicly available, and extremely expensive to the US taxpayer and the allies that defending it any longer is so ridiculous. One does not need classified information to know the vast majority of the F-35’s defects – the laws of physics cannot be classified etc.
The US and the allies deserve a far better single role air superiority fighter, close air support and interdictor strike bomber aeroplanes to defend their countries defence far better than the F-35.
What I like most about The Project on Government Oversight, Inc. (POGO) is that the work tirelessly against government corruption and foolish spending of tax dollars. They get results too! I always cheer when I read their newsletters of what they did or assessments made. Everyone wants an ethical, non-corrupt government. POGO does something about it. Hugs.
POGO is about as good as it gets when it comes to providing specific, detailed, in-depth information that I can use to make an intelligent phone call to one of my Congresspersons, the White House, the head of a government agency or any other decision-maker. The POGO folks do their homework and they speak truth to power in ways that are urgently needed, especially in times like ours when foxes are being put in charge of the hen houses and it seems like just about everything regarding the public treasury and the public trust are being raffled off to special interests and industry insiders. POGO will tell you who's doing the dirty deeds and help you 'follow the money' to see who really benefits from a particular government program or expenditure. Highly recommended!
I have relied on POGO for years for careful reports on the many ways in which folks try to milk the government, both from inside and outside. The organization is an essential, vigorous, non-partisan watchdog that keeps government honest (or at least tries to do so).
POGO is my go-to source for information regarding the diversion of federal funds into private pockets.
NO GROUP, COMMUNITY, STATE, NATION CAN SUSTAIN A DEMOCRATIC PROCESS FOR ANY LEVEL OF GOVERNANCE WITHOUT .... OVERSIGHT. POGO DOES AND HAS DONE A REMARKABLE, INTELLIGENT, BALANCED JOB OF OVERSIGHT FOR THIS NATION. INVALUABLE. THE WORDS, "A FUNCTIONING DEMOCRACY REQUIRES AN INFORMED CITIZENRY" ARE NOT EMPTY OF ESSENCE, AND POGO IS NEVER EMPTY OF IMPORTANT REPORTING.
POGO is the government watch-dog we all need, especially in light of the immense amount of corruption going on in every aspect of our government. With the incessant desire to 'out-source' everything government should be doing with dedicated, professional, career workers, there is an even GREATER need for POGO and its equivalent.
Keep following the money.
Thank goodness POGO is watching our government, digging into superficial reports to uncover waste, abuse, bias, and bringing these to the attention of the public - and the supervisory agencies, hopefully. We should have many more groups doing what they do.
