Personally I much prefer chopping up my pork and having it on the grill. But serving it up for a roast on my blog is pretty tastey as well. Here in the great state of Wisconsin, the transportation bill has "gifted us" with a lot of useless spending. For some reason, we seem to be obsessed with pedestrian and bike paths, and they almost all seem to cost a $1 million or more. Not only that, but federal dollars are being thrown willy nilly at roads and highways that are clearly state or city roads. It's total insanity. Here is a run down on what I've found that is easy to cut (and I didn't even try that hard):
By the way, Tom... I'll send you a bill for my 1% finders fee in a few days. I think $170,500 is reasonable for about 20 minutes worth of work don't you?
These pork projects seem to fall mostly in the domain of Rep. Tom Petri, and my own Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner. Well gentlemen, how about cutting some fat?!
