This is just pure stupidity! STUPIDITY!!! And this is only 10 of the how many? earmarks in the stimulus package. This is what happens when PEOPLE DON'T READ IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS BEFORE SIGNING THEM!! And I know it's not just the Democrats grabbing money for their little pet projects, there's some Republicans doing the same thing! One of them is from my state. Sen. Thad Cochran is getting $950,000 for a nature education center! SERIOUSLY? Is a nature education center something that should be on the top of our priority list right now? I freakin think NOT!
I think that Gov. Jindal hit the nail on the head when he said:
" Who among us would ask our children for a loan, so we could spend money we do not have, on things we do not need? That is precisely what the Democrats in Congress just did. It's irresponsible. And it's no way to strengthen our economy, create jobs, or build a prosperous future for our children."
