I don’t know how many times I’ve yelled at the TV when the topic has been “Small Business”. I know it’s not a good sign of mental stability when you talk to your TV but at least I don’t throw things at it or shoot it.
Here’s a prime example that dates back to 2001.
“In a ceremony at the Defense Information Systems Agency today, representatives of the Department of Defense and a consortium of three businesses officially signed the largest combined small business set-aside acquisition in the history of the federal government. “ (emphasis is mine)
I checked out the companies that were awarded the contracts and they were all $50 Million a year “Small Businesses”
“The maximum cumulative face value for all three contracts for satellite transmission services, awarded last evening, is anticipated to be $2.196 billion over the life of the contracts, if all options are exercised. “ (I did it again)
Cognitive Dissonance anyone?
