$410B in Pure Pork

A Partial Listing of these "Essential Expenditures":

$2.2 million for the Center for Grape Genetics in upstate New York.

$143,000 for Manhattan's American Ballet Theatre "for educational activities".

$214,000 for Stony Brook University "to teach scientists how to effectively communicate with the public and the press".

$950,000 for a Poughkeepsie pedestrian bridge.

$500,000 for a Senate "pilot program" to defray the cost of mass-mail postcards notifying constituents of town-hall meetings.

What utter Bullshit!

I am sooo glad that my children and their children will have their futures mortgaged to pay for these Essential Expenditures.
