  1. It’s a PORK-U-LUnited States bill. 0bama said he would keep PORK out of Congressional bills. And, TARDS believed him.

  2. Thank you for bringing to light the continued incompetence of this administration. What a bunch of morons we have in D.C.!

  3. i like the radioactive rabbits the best..lol

    what a waste of money.

    I live in Australia, and we have have had a massive infrastructure stimulus package, over the last six months or whatever, one out of ten rods have been relaid, all over my uni stuff is getting built, my old high school is getting upgraded. I think that makes more sence

  4. I volunteer to help Syracuse University in its study off the sex lives of freshmen women. And do it for free as my patriotic duty………

  5. Most of these projects provided jobs for people like the bike racks that was a lot of labor that was paid to families I could make a longer list of money wasted in Iraq were the American labor force got nothing. But I did see Interstate eighty one and other interstate highways in VA get a big needed upgrade where all kinds of people and equiptment were used and money circulated and children got brand new shoes out of the deal because Obama’nation gave these working American people, White, Black Hispanics ect ect a job instead of spending trillions in Iraq.

  6. Yes and it looks like most of it is being flushed down the twenty two concrete toilets! What a scam, congress and 0bama have nothing but contempt for the taxpayer! Thank s for posting this!

  7. That is pretty disturbing. A source where you got this info would be great. Not that I’m questioning it.

  8. And we thought Am track and the USPS were money pits that keep increasing wasteful spending and now this is just vomitous blatant irrational spending. When inflation hits for this incomprehensible wasteful spending will anyone ever make the government responsible to pay for this idiocy? Obama’nation is a liar!

  9. That money that went to Syracuse University to study the sex lives of freshmen coeds sounds kinda hot. How do I sign up to help conduct that study?

    Also Joe Biden went to law school at Syracuse, is this a coincidence or not?
