    nice to know that on top of being stupid and disingenuous, you're also disgusting.

    Personally, I think it's a great idea. I don't know how many letters, e-mails & phone calls our representatives have received over all of these ridiculous pork barrel spending projects & earmarks, but I;ll bet it's in the millions. They haven't listened.

    So I am going to send my tea bag "wraper" to them, & let them know I am very serious about spending money on such things as the study of "pig stink" in Iowa--during this economic crisis.
