Last night, I posted a message on another web site about the need to take action, and call people to head off the $50.7 Billion addition to the “Sandy” aid package that includes as much in “Community Block Grants” (Read: Socialist Meddling) as it does in actual aid to any one actually affected by the storm. Not to mention Alaska fishery grants, and a host of other stuff that bore no relation to the storm.
But, whatever we did, it was far, far from enough. The house, where Republicans have a huge numerical advantage, passed this pork by a rather amazing margin. Read the Breitbart article here. We, the people, lost. Rather big time.
As I said elsewhere, the government, especially our elected officials of both parties cannot be trusted to to the right thing – ever. It is a totally corrupt enterprise, now.
