Looney Tunes U

If stinkin’ Warner Brothers can coherently explain Economics 101, what the heck is wrong with our elected officials?

They can’t be bothered to read the bills they sign — maybe they can at least watch a cartoon or two.

Porkbusters Update

Instapundit has a roundup of congressional reactions to the Porkbusters idea, with Nancy Pelosi(!) leading the House Democrats in pledging to return pork earmarked for her district. Tom Delay and Don Young seem a bit more, well, intractable on the the whole.
Keep up the pressure, folks. It’s obviously struck a nerve in D.C.

Get On The Porkbusters Bandwagon

Oink!Have you heard about the Porkbusters initiative? Glenn Reynolds and N.Z. Bear came up with the simple idea that, in order to help pay for the Katrina cleanup effort, individual bloggers and Netizens of all stripes should ferret out local pork projects and then pressure their Congresscritters to redirect said pork to those who really need it. The idea’s getting some press coverage as well as some play in the halls of Congress, both of which are beneficial in my opinion. So check out how your states are benefiting from unnecessary Federal spending and then add your findings to the collective list.
In news a bit closer to home, protests continue over the idiotic pay raises PA Commonwealth officials instituted for themselves, with a giant pig awaiting the return of the legislators and a giant protest timed to coincide with the start of the new lawmaking session.
Toss the bums out, the lot of ’em.
