A lot of processes & procedures of Congress are left to the bodies themselves by the US Constitution.  As they have evolved some are silly, stupid & counter to solving problems & coming up with good legislation.  Amongst these are the Philibuster.  What others can anyone think of ?
  • Philibuster
  • Pork barrel funding - adding unrelated pork to legislation for something else
  • .. tbd

Democrat waste (pulling their pork udders) trying to bribe their way towards owning defeat!

Well the pork in this bill is an embarassment to whole Congressional process.   The deadline, which appears headed to Bush's desk, is shere political drama ... it will never pass into law.  I suppose it is necessary for Democrats to do this; but the time to have done this was back in 2004.  Oh well, we wake up too late.  Strategically, if you are going to keep troops there untill 2008, and we are, you might as well send a unified message to the enemy. 

Partisan politics is a bad general. 


Mark de LA says
Someone calculated that the Democrat thin majority had to spend $$120,000,000 in pork bribes per vote to get the thin majorities to pass this stupid pork bill.  Meanwhile the troops who are actually fighting may run out of money to finish the job on tax day April 15.

IMHO, pork is bribery & should be eliminated (also called earmarks) & made illegal.  If Congress can use yours & my taxes to force appropriations which are nor representative of what the constituents want - that is pure bribery.  We get real excited about money in politics when a corporation wants to contribute money to a candidate.  Why not get outraged when it's done internal using tax money from you and I to do the same? That's not true representation!

wikipedia:
Earmarks: ... The term dates to the 16th century, originally referring to cuts or marks in the ears of cattle and sheep made as a mark of ownership.
 ...
Guess who are the cattle & sheep from the point of view of this government ?
