Pork Barrel Politics

--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

i know it's a little off-topic, but just for fun, i did a search at Insight Magazine for 'homosexuals' : They're Bigots.

also in the poll at the site, over 80% of those polled said that the war in iraq would still be justified even if there were no weapons found.

i don't think i'll be reading this magazine.

i do like what they have to say about this pork business though.

I really don't know how this has any bearing on the topic I've updated the link to this one from the CAGW website so the messenger won't offend you.

So all this is pork barrel politics? I live down the street from the Medical College...How is training future surgeons waste? And helping a library get a computer lab is a waste of funds? And dont say that the Animal Disease center money is a waste when your dying of Avian Flu, or SARS, or West Nile.

Oh. Damnit...I'm dealing with libertarians, arent I?

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
