Conservatism mixed with a little end time theology

“Pork”ulus Indeed!

It’s confirmed.

The so-called Stimulus Bill – nicknamed the ‘Porkulus Bill’ for all the wasteful spending – has been used by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to purchase canned pork.

$16.8M worth, in fact.

But wait, there’s always an excuse.

“The administration seems acutely aware that some wasteful spending from the $787 billion recovery package is inevitable, as noted by Vice President Biden earlier this year.”

Don’t worry, Americans, we knew this was going to happen.  Nevermind that the same guy also spent $1.56 million for mozzarella cheese and $1.2 million on ham, among other items.

Now, they claim this food will be given to homeless shelters and food banks to feed those hit by the economic hard times.

And, I’m all about helping the poor.  It’s just I am weary of people becoming dependent on the government for assistance.

Will any of this help these people in the long run?  No.

Who knows how much of this food will actually be given to the poor.  The people running this operation are no different than those in the SSA who just partied it up in Arizona.  And, all that after ripping corporate businesses for ‘lavish’ spending.

Besides, who wants to eat mozzarella cheese with canned pork?

Step right up to that sludge 🙂

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life.”
