VERO PORKULUS: DUmmies are 'Drooling for Dollars'
VERO PORKULUS: "Yes we can . . . spend like drunken sailors with pockets full of other people's money!" That's the motto of President Government and his fellow naughty nauticals in Congress, drunk with the thought of all that taxpayer money to spend in the name of "stimulus." For the DUmmies, when they think about the Porkulus bill, they ask not about the fairness of taking even more money out of the taxpayer's pocket for Big Government to waste, but rather they ask, "Where's mine?" The DUmmies are "Drooling for Dollars" for their own little corner of the collective, as we see in this THREAD, "Do you want to see what's in the Stimulus bill for your city?" So belly up to the bar, boys, as you salivate over sacks of cash ready to be redistributed in your corrupt big blue cities! The DUmmie droolings are in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson--who would find non-"targeted" across-the-board tax cuts for ALL, deep SPENDING cuts, and a drastic DOWNSIZING of the federal Leviathan TRULY stimulating--is in the [brackets]:
Do you want to see what's in the Stimulus bill for your city?
[Pork. Lots of it.]
Go Here: http://www.stimuluswatch.org
[Go Here: http://www.droolingfordollars.pork]
That's a lot of jobs.
[Translation: That's a lot of money stolen from taxpayers' pockets to fund big-blue-city make-work jobs as a reward to corrupt Democrat politicians and their dependable Democrat base.]
My state gets nothing - apparently. Aint that grand.
[Call the WAAAAAAAAAAAHmbulance!]
None of the projects mentioned at that site are part of the stimulus package. What is there, are examples of what "Could" be achieved through the stimulus package.
["Could be," meaning, after the corrupt Dem politicians and their cronies get their share.]
Yep....49 states, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico made the list....New Hampshire not so much...I guess we'll just have to team up with ThomWV and the "Hosed States" contingent.....
[Where do I sign up for the "Hosed Taxpayers" list?]
Fine by me... if it also means we can stop paying taxes. Live Free or Die! I'm really beginning to like our motto.
[Quiet! You might turn into a conservative yet! Don't you know paying taxes is "patriotic"?]
This is totally made up. This is what a group of individuals decided was in the stimulus based on various programs suggested by different cities and states. No money has been specifically targeted in the bill, not one project that I'm aware of.
[What you're saying, then, is that this Porkulus bill is truly a case of "buying a pig in a poke."]
Look at the bigger picture. If you put one person to work they can start taking their family out to dinner again. The waiter gets a tip. They can buy groceries. Trickle UP.
[Trickle OUT--out of the taxpayers' pockets.]
"could" doesn't mean will. I'm not arguing the value of any given local project - I'm saying that this site is a fraud because these people have no idea what project will be funded.
[And we're supposed to SUPPORT the Porkulus bill, even though we have "NO IDEA" how the money will be spent???]
Look at the people in this thread who think these are the guaranteed projects that are coming. They aren't. How cruel.
[So let's pass a Porkulus bill, spending bazillions and bazillions of dollars, with NO PROJECTS GUARANTEED AT ALL! That would be NOT cruel.]
damn these people for putting up this phony web site.
[D*mn the rethuglicans for opposing spending tons of dough on nebulous pork!]
*shovel ready* can also mean pork on the run. I went through my area, and many of those construction jobs amounted to re-surfacing roads that don't NEED to be re-surfaced.
[But that makes them so much easier to resurface!]
"Stimulus Watch is based on the U.S. Conference of Mayors' catalog of projects. The mayors' report was issued to give Congress an estimate of how much it should appropriate for the various federal programs that will in turn disburse the funds to localities. . . . The question now is, which of the mayors' proposed 10,000+ projects will the Obama agencies fund?"
[The question now is, which projects will benefit Democrats the most?]
"Once funded I hope the site can keep local officials accountable on spending the money."
[As someone who grew up in the city of Chicago, I have one comment on that: BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!]
My city gets nothing. . . .
Niether does mine. . . .
I can still hope the money sloshes around a while before it drains out of the state and heads off to an unmarked bank account in the Caimans.
[Charlie Rangel will send you a postcard from the Caymans.]
no jobs for 57 yr old women
[No Country for Old Women]
Until Obama addresses the bleeding of all the jobs to other countries. . . .
[Curious treatment Doc Obama has prescribed to "address the bleeding": taking a knife to major arteries, i.e., more taxes and more regulation on business, which will only ACCELERATE the loss of jobs.]
if they start these jobs, more jobs will be created: administrative support, procurement, restaurants will staff up to feed the workers, retail will be able to staff up to sell clothing, boots etc. it will truly be a trickle out. . . .
[First of all, I thought you DUmmies didn't believe in "trickle" economics. But secondly, why not try to create REAL jobs, private-sector jobs, by enhancing the climate for business, instead of creating phony make-work government jobs?]
My city (Lynn, MA) is racking it up. . . .
[WOO-HOO! More government money for our deep-blue city!]
wow! lynchburg va get a whole sh*tload of $$$
[And Obambi and the Democrats are shoveling the taxpayers a whole load of sh*t.]
Lots of Construction jobs.
[Not for white guys, though, according to Robert B. Reichhhhhhhhhhhh.]
Nothing for 53-year-old asthmatic females.
[WAAAAAAAAAA--*cough* *cough* *gasp*. . . .]
ONE!!!???!!! ONE project for the whole state of WV??!!
[Sheets Byrd must be falling down on the job!! Boot his sorry old @$$ out of there and get a NEW pork-grabber!!]
this is just jobs that could be funded. Not specific projects in the plan.
[Don't worry, there will be PLENTY of pork to pass around!]
Florida has the most. Over 1700 projects.
[Snow-plow jobs for the city of Miami--some might call that a boondoggle. But then, what do I know?]
these are "shovel ready" projects. . . .
[These are "shovel the sh*t" jobs.]
Delaware. Infrastructure and environment, which looks very good.
[Plenty of new jobs for Scranton, Delaware. The Home Depot should be busy.]
Un F*cking Believable - West Virginia gets 1 project, worth $700k employing 20 people. And I have neighbors (about 20 households) just down the road from me that have been fighting for 10 years to get city water. The project requires extending a f*cking pipe one half mile along a long existant right of way.
[Call Joe the Plumber.]
$850,000,000,000.00 goes a long way.
[$850,000,000,000.00 goes the WRONG way--out of our pockets, through the federal government, and into the hands of Dem politicians!]
and any number of these *shovel ready* jobs can be possible pork. . . .
[I will give the Kewpie Doll maker the job of sending one to you!]
Bupkus for my county.
[No County for New Pork]
cincy, lovin it.
[The Big Blue Machine.]
Is this etched in stone yet?
[We'll check with the Stone-Etchers Union.]
That kind of sucks but we're used to getting the shaft. . . .
[Is that you, benburch?]
CALL CONGRESS RIGHT F*CKING NOW !!!111!!!
[Dialing for Dollars. That number once again, 1-800-GET-PORK. Operators are standing by.]
I really really really hope President Obama pays for those 2 dog parks.
["Yes We Canine!" and "Bark Obowwow" Porkulus Parks.]
154 projects in Nebraska and every single last one of them in Lincoln and Omaha. Surprise, surprise, surprise. b*st*rds.
[IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!]
Woohoo! We're getting fire hydrants!
[Sorry, they're going to the dog parks.]

A few hours ago, when I was thinking of doing this DUFU, I sent out this request to a few of our graphics whizzes:
Remember Obama's "VERO POSSUMUS" seal, with the eagle holding arrows in its talons and with the Obama "O"? Can one of you guys morph that into a "VERO PORKULUS" seal, with a pig holding dollar bills in its hooves and still with the Obama "O"?
Well, good ol' Roscoe Karns came through with an EXCELLENT graphic--a little too late to make the top graphic for this DUFU, but definitely worth an update! Thanx, RK!

And now, in addition to Roscoe Karns, another of our graphics whizzes, Lucky9teen, has come through with an excellent "VERO PORKULUS"!
