The Hated Earmark

As we spend trillions and fling our collective arms in disgust over a few million being paid to faceless executives we should remember something:

If the stimulus package was completely earmarked, we'd know where the money was being spent and it would be against the law to spend it any other way.

Just sayin'

If we're going to blow the money, we may as well know where it went so historians will have an easier time writing about this debacle years from now.

I'm going to send a letter to my Congressman pushing for an earmark. I think the government should fund the purchase of a Slap Chop for every poor person who isn't eating healthy.
