    Why should anyone even think about giving the government MORE money when this is the way they waste it?

    Shovel Ready in San Fran: $205,075 to ‘Translocate’ One Shrub from Path of Stimulus Project
    By Thomas Cloud

    CNSNews.com) -- The government spent at least $205,075 in 2010 to “translocate” a single bush in San Francisco that stood in the path of a $1.045-billion highway-renovation project that was partially funded by the economic stimulus legislation President Barack Obama signed in 2009.

    The bush—a Franciscan manzanita—was a specimen of a commercially cultivated species of shrub that can be purchased from nurseries for as little as $15.98 per plant. The particular plant in question, however, was discovered in the midst of the City of San Francisco, in the median strip of a highway, and was deemed to be the last example of the species in the “wild.”

    What do you care? You don't make enough money to pay taxes.

    I think someone needs to be investigated. There is no way it costs 200k to move a bush. And what is the point of moving it to a secret location? This smells like a kickback to me. The secret location was probably in a dumpster across the street.

    Wouldn't surprise me after they found out that the plant was readily available.

    You know..it's ignorant statements like this that show people what an idiot you are. You have knowing anyone else's financial circumstances and yet you make statements like this. Try staying on topic.

    ( and if I don't make enough to pay taxes, call Obama for me and tell him to send back the tax deposit I had to make today )

    I can think of a good reason for keeping the location secret. If I knew the location, I would go there in the middle of the night, rip the plant out of the ground and put it through a wood chipper.
