Free Lunch Monitors

The AARP has started a project to monitor those organizations who attempt to attract business by providing "free lunch" seminars.  Typically these seminars are lightly veiled sales pitches for various investment products.  Their products may or may not be a good deal for the prospective investors.  Obvious signs that they may be a bad deal are promises that are too good to be true such as claims of little or no risk,  higher than reasonable returns for indefinite periods of time, or modest returns with the promise of no taxes. 

A better idea would be a project to monitor the"free lunches" being promised by the Federal Government in the form of bail-outs, stimulus packages, and a seemingly infinite stream of free or very low cost benefits for an ever-increasing number of people.  Of course you won't see the AARP advocating a project like that because they already benefit from some of the "free lunches" provided by the Federal Government and they are lobbying for more.  Who will stand up and provide free lunch monitors for the common taxpayer?
