    There is hope yet. Go Mr. Speaker ! Between this & Ron Paul Chairing the Monetary Policy Subcommittee, it is going to be a complete shock to the corrupt Washington System. :cool:

    As the November congressional elections draw ever nearer, taxpayer calls for budgetary prudence and deficit reduction are increasing in intensity. Traditional budget hawk Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) stated earlier this year, “I don’t think any agency of the federal government should be exempt from rooting out wasteful spending or unnecessary spending. And I, frankly, I would agree with it at the Pentagon. There’s got to be wasteful spending there, unnecessary spending there. It all ought to be eliminated.” But his continuing parochial support for the needlessly duplicative F136 extra engine puts him at odds with his own political philosophy and a potential tidal wave of voter anger that might propel him to the speaker’s podium.

    F135 JSF Engine Blog: Good News from Washington, Even Better from Beyond

    Now, I happen to actually like the new speaker, however to say that he has been somehow above the fray when it comes to pork is a bit of a stretch. The JSF Alt. Engine is a second Engine that congress approved which John Boehner voted yes on is not needed and is nothing but pork spending and jobs program for G.E. who is the prime contractor for the Alt. Engine in Ohio. Theres a word for that "bringing home the bacon" , now if someone be they Democrat or Republican really wants to cut this kind of nonsense out then they would start right at home, just a thought.

    When U.S. House Minority Leader John Boehner told a newscaster Sunday that not a single stimulus-funded road contract in his home state of Ohio had been let, he was wrong.

    The Ohio Department of Transportation has OK'd 52 stimulus-funded road and bridge projects at a cost of nearly $84 million.

    When someone from the GOP says, "I have never......", I just assume they are lying. So far, I've been right every time.

    Verb 1. earmark - give or assign a resource to a particular person or cause; "I will earmark this money for your research"

    earmarks - definition of earmarks by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    The problem is those on the right don't understand how things work. They are not real bright. It's their kind that gave us two Republican administrations who ran this country into the ground.

    A "perfect" example. I know Republicans will laugh at this because they don't understand how things work.

    Remember when John McCain laughed at "earmarks" being spent studying honeybees? To him, as well as most Republicans, honeybees are terrible insects that sting. They don't understand that nearly our entire agricultural economy depends on "honeybees" and scientists don't understand why they are dying, and by dying, threatening America's entire food supply.

    OK, let the jokes begin. Go ahead Republicans. Show us how stupid you really are.

    On your earmark:

    GO!

    Corrupt Washington system? Like handing out checks from the tobacco lobby on the house floor? How about enjoying plane rides on lobbyist private jets?

    Not going to joke with you, however as a Republican I cannot speak for Sen. McCain but will say most that I know of understand the relationship between honeybee's and agriculture. However like me some tend to believe that research into these things should be sponsored by the agriculture sector and not the American taxpayer or for that matter grants given through private industry or individuals. When the Govt. is more solvent then money can be allocated for such things as honeybee research and a whole host of other of what I am sure worthy research programs.

    Was that question addressed to yourself? Obviously the answer is NO, because you keep posting stupidity. The article cited didnt mention Boehner once.
    FAIL.
