It's Raining Pork! Hallelujah!

Here in Pennsylvania our governor, Ed Rendell, is spending $22.2 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The program is called PA Conservation Works! and it is "a new grant program for local government and non-profit entities seeking to conserve or reduce energy use. PA Conservation Works! will provide up to $250,000 for individual projects and $500,000 for joint projects designed to increase energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption and reduce energy costs by at least 25 percent."

(Read the press release here.)

No doubt the government will succeed at reducing energy consumption the way they have
succeeded in reducing drug use, illiteracy, poverty, crime, unemployment, teenage pregnancy....I could go on, but I'm sure you get the point.

No wonder we have a recession going on, we're drowning in pork! This kind of spending only aggravated and prolonged the great Depression and is only hurting us now. When will they learn?


  1. I disagree. Rendell will certainly reduce energy consumption, as he drives business away and make us all too poor to buy electricity.

    Stone age culture is great for the environment.

  2. Jim,

    Hey, that's great. I've always wanted to start a new career as a flint arrowhead maker. Now's my chance! Thank you Fast Eddie. LOL

    (For those of you not from PA Fast Eddie is one of Gov. Ed Rendell's nicknames, Spendell is another.)
