    The rhetoric of Pork and Earmarks are being used to smear a lot of very worthy local projects in the stimulus bill. The right don't even bother to itemize, they just claim (very loudly) that the entire bill is PORK.

    Why should the federal government fund a local project? If it were as worthy as you claim, the state should be the one to fund it or even the community.


    I was trying to answer to WillR on that one ...,sorry Shiz.

    They lost badly trying to nationalize health care.

    Now all eyes are watching.
    They may not be informed now, bu in the next elections there is a mass of material already made for exploitation.
    And it's the socialists holding the bag.

    Ad by ad across the country the message of pork instead of stimulus will be played out in front of the American public.

    One party is porking out, the other is waiting and assembling ammunition to crush the delivery team.

    This is the foundation for Republican ascendancy in 2010 and 2012. If only they espouse Conservative values and run conservative candidates.

    The foundation is being built trillion by trillion of dollars.

    If i could spend $1 million a day, since the birth of Christ/common era, it would not equal $1 trillion today.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Of course Shumer thinks the American people don't care about pork, in fact they love pork. But that makes perfect sense given the fact that the northeast (his American people) is liberal and home to the turkeys that got us into this financial mess.

    See my thread on this. The president does not have a line-item veto, therefore he must veto the entire bill. Itemizing will make no difference in that process.

    I think as far as most people are concerned if it is unrelated spending then it is pork. If these things are that worthwhile then they should be able to stand on their own without the "Oh no the sky is going to fall if this is not passed" bill.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
