We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Wow. So much can be done with that money it nearly brings me to tears. This must change!
I sincerely hope that there's a lot more than one 2-LB sliced ham involved in each of those first two items...a total of over 3-1/2 mil for only two 2-LB hams just seems...I dunno...excessive?...
Over sixteen and three-quarters mil for "Canned Pork", OTOH, sounds about right - Your DemonRat Gubmint At Work (Or Play - Take Your Choice...) -
Talk about your "pork-barrelling"...
(Wasn't it that notorious ol' porker Lyndon Baines Johnson who once pontifically declared, "The pork-barrel is dead" - whilst pipelining Beltway-generated "Great Society" pork as fast as his pen could travel without running dry?)
What your showing doens't seem to be related to the actual awards. In particular the award labled:RECOVERY.GOV // AWARDED: $1,444,100 FOR 'REPAIR DOOR BLDG 5112'...
Points to replacing the surfaces of playgrounds at Dyess AFB TX, whereas the next item: RECOVERY.GOV // AWARDED: $541,119 FOR 'INSTALL TRAFFIC SIGNAL'... is actually an award of $541,120 to repair the door and a lot more of an hangar (FACILITY 752) at Langley AFB Va. If you've ever seen a hangar door of you'd understand 500K is probably reasonable for any extensive work.
What I think is the funny is that this appears to be part of the normal maintenance and Improvement work that the Air Force routinely does. So the Obama Administration is now claiming to have reduced the Defense Dept. Budget by this amount and is spending it as 'Recovery'? Deceitful, lying politicians at work.
