Idaho GOP Legies add
$400 million pork to Demo's Iraq War Bill
(Mar 25, 2007)
Boise, ID – Hold onto
your Rocket Java, Margie, it's a Blue Light Special on Aisle # 535 at
Capitol Hill. Free money from the U.S. Congress. $74 million for
peanut farmers; $25 million for spinach growers; $238 million for dairy
farmers; $400 million for rural schools and... whoop-tee-doo, the Democrats
and Republicans have teamed up to add $20 billion in state earmarks to bribe
their fellow pirates to vote yes on a $124 billion supplemental funding and
pullout deadline Bill for the War in Iraq. Plus, House Squeaker Nancy
Pelosi tacked on her ridiculous minimum wage law, which does nothing but
cause unemployment or bankrupt marginal small businesses.
How much does Idaho get? $24 million for a one-year extension of the
Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act, which is a
beautiful euphemism for, "Oops, we ran out of money for rural schools when
the Sheriff of Nottingham stopped collecting enough federal forest taxes in
2006." Time to rob the Federal Piggy Bank, again.
As we have
stated over and over at FM Duck News, there's not a dime's worth of
difference between the moral philosophy of the left Liberal Demos and the
GOP Republicans. Both major parties see nothing wrong with robbing the
taxpayers in order to redistribute the Federal Reserve's National Wallpaper
-- the hyper-inflated dollar -- in an attempt to convince the masses that
they can receive free money from Washington and live at the expense of
everybody else through that great fictitious entity called The State.
following quote by Idaho Senator Mike
Crapo, "My hope is as we get this
through the Senate and some kind of a conference committee, we are able to
strip out the language on the troop withdrawal." Idaho's GOP Senators
Mike Crapo and Larry Craig and Rep. Mike Simpson
are not concerned with the morality of receiving billions of dollars in pork
barrel earmarks from Washington
DC, but rather only with changing the American troop withdrawal date from
Iraq. Rep Simpson, who voted no on the Iraqi War Bill in which his
earmark was attached was very clever: i.e. he voted no while
knowing the Demos would approve the Bill, which they did, 218-212, and thus
approve his $24 million earmark for Idaho.
Wow, what a clever politician, eh Margie?
And you ask where hyper-inflation comes from? The U.S. Congress
continually authorizes the private Federal Reserve to crank up our deficit
expenditures so our politicians can remain in power by playing temporary
Santa Claus with the voters. No worries. The chickens will soon
come home to roost as our over-extended economy comes crashing down around
our heads because there ain't no such thing as a free lunch, folks. Yo-ho,
yo-ho, a pirate's life for me... -- FM Duck
