451-page Bailout Behemoth & the USSA

The Senate's 451-page bailout behemoth, posted HERE from the the Senate Conservatives Fund, is a debt increasing, pork-laden pile of crap.

Consider some of the earmarks in the bill:

- Film and Television Productions (Sec. 502)
- Wooden Arrows designed for use by children (Sec. 503)
- 6 page package of earmarks for litigants in the 1989 Exxon Valdez incident, Alaska (Sec. 504)

Consider some of the tax earmark “extenders” in the bill:

- Smart electric meters (Section 306)
- Recycling deduction (Sec 307)
- Virgin Island and Puerto Rican Rum (Sec 308)
- American Samoa (Sec. 309)
- Mine Rescue Teams (Sec. 310)
- Mine Safety Equipment (Sec. 311)
- Domestic Production Activities in Puerto Rico (Sec. 312)
- Indian Tribes (Sec. 314, 315)
- Railroads (Sec. 316)
- Auto Racing Tracks (Sec. 317)
- Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act extensions (Sec. 319)
- Computer contribution deductions (Sec. 321)
- District of Columbia (Sec. 322)
- Food contribution deductions (Sec. 323)
- Book contribution deductions (sec. 324)
- Wool Research (Sec. 325)

I have already told my two Utah senators that they will never get a vote or dime of my support for as long as I live. McCain, the very same dork that last Friday said he abhorred pork and if he were president would veto it, voted for this pile of dung.

Most ruin comes upon a nation little by little. This trend has been trumped. The assault on freedom is rampant. We have seen in a short week America become the United Socialist States of America (USSA).

I think "tomato tossing at hated politicians" might make a valid return as a cultural past-time. I've a stockpile for Hatch and Bennett waiting to be unloaded.
