Letter to Representative Foxx on the New Republican Corruption

   Dear Virginia, How great to be able to congratulate you once again!  And yes, we both voted for you.  Now to another matter:


    Following is from the Internet: !three little porky pigs These Moron Republicans Want to Bring Back Pork Earmarks! By Scott Osborn  Nov 16, 2016
“REPS. JOHN CULBERSON OF TEXAS, MIKE ROGERS OF ALABAMA, AND TOM ROONEY OF FLORIDA HAVE DECIDED, (AGAINST THE COMMON SENSE THEIR PARENTS SHOULD HAVE TAUGHT THEM), THAT WE SHOULD RETURN TO EARMARKS.

UNBELIEVABLE! Do these three have brain damage? Go ahead boys, and face the wrath of the conservative grassroots, primary opponents, and some pretty bad publicity!”

Virginia, I realize that Ryan has blocked earmarks for the time being.  However, few of us trust Republicans any more not to cave and be corrupt again.  So, you and your colleagues need to let the porkers know we have not put our pitch forks away.  Just as we were able to think it was getting safe to get back in the water again and be proud to use the name Republican, here they come along and remind us how quickly the party can go back to corruption.  Nothing has ever made me so furious than what Culbertson et. al. want to do.

As one who runs a blog, I feel personally besmirched.  I can only hope that as we begin to drain the swamp, these slimy congressman will be sucked right up from the bottom where they dwell.

The deepest part of the swamp.

While I strongly detest ear marks, the Congressmen have a point. If Congress doesn't direct how the funds are spent, then the bureaucracy gets to decide. As someone who has worked in the bureaucracy at the federal and state levels, I can attest that there are few if any conservatives who hold civil service positions in the government agencies, both federal and state.

The real solution is to cut funding so that there is no ability to arbitrarily fund pork projects by Congressmen or the bureaucracy.
