Congress Buys Pork with Soldiers' Lives

Yesterday afternoon, right before they went on vacation, your 110th Congress (including the Maryland Senate delegation) decided to go against the wishes of almost 3/4 of the American people and give in to the President to pass a no-strings-attached war funding bill. As one blogger noted, there's some goodies in the bill for the Democrats, like Katrina relief funding, minimum wage hikes, and various pork projects. Good to see that, while Congress won't stop sending American soldiers to the meat grinder to die in another country's civil war, at least they got some "good pork" out of it.

I'm glad to see that they're finally throwing some money towards pork projects. I mean, in fifty years, the only good thing to come from the pork industry is the slogan, "pork, it's what's for dinner." Personally, I think the industry could use a facelift. Bacon is SOO 2003.
