I just learned that our Federal government has not yet released the promised relief funds to victims of the recent east coast hurricane. Also that the bill authorizing the funds has been saddled with MORE PORK. For me, not knowing the exact means and methods of bringing a bill before the Congress, this is the ultimate stupidity of the day. The people in charge of these things, somehow, do not get it. They are so disconnected from the citizens of America that, apparently, they can no longer tell time. Why is there ANY pork attached to this urgently needed funding? As this bill progressed from office to office someone stopped progress long enough to slip in billions of dollars of pork. Who allowed this to happen? Who added each line of pork? Why should they not be punished in some way?
