Hurrican Sandy Sees Pork Fly

Our politicians are a sleazy, disgusting lot of money grubbing liars and hypocrites. I’m referring to both Democrats and Republicans. The latest example is the relief bill to help the victims of hurricane Sandy. Politicians from all over the country saw an opportunity to cash in on this disaster by loading up the relief bill with all sorts of pork barrel projects that had nothing to do with the hurricane. Fisheries in Alaska? Repairs for the Smithsonian roof? $28 billion for future “disaster mitigation” projects? This is another sad example of our dysfunctional and money driven political system. “We have met the enemy…and he is us”.

When Sandy hit hard in New York
The damage would quickly uncork
Politicians’ zeal
To load up a deal
For recovery that’s laden with pork.
