Who is a pig now?

Who is a worse pig, Obama or Biden, that is the question that will be answered today.

The Swine Line  is a blog that follows the pork-barrel spending by members of Congress. Earmarks, as they are called, are line items of federal budget expenditure that each member requests to be “specifically allocated’ for a particular project, outside the budgetary process, and beyond the discretion of the chief executive, such as a mayor, governor or council chairman.  Members of both House and Senate pride themselves as they ‘bring home the bacon’ out of the total federal monies, budget deficits be damned.

The non-partisan group Citizens Against Government Waste, which maintains  The Swine Line came out recently with reports for 2007 and for 2008 so far, highlights:

In 2007 Biden requested nearly 120 million dollars of pork for 70 different projects;

In 2007 Obama requested  over 97 million dollars of pork for 53 different projects;

John McCain earned a 100% ratings in the Pig Book, having never requested an earmark. He vows to veto any such bills if elected President.

You can see John McCain, the champion of NO-Earmark legislation and

 

Obama has said in stump speeches that Gov. Palin sought earmarks, of course that’s not true. It is congressman and senators who fund these projects and they have the prerogative to do earmarks. You can also watch a Fox News video report on earmarks reported by William LaJuennesse making the point.

  • Slaying Salmon July 15, 2014
    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    President Trump drew rave reviews on the right for a forceful address on global issues at the United Nations. But you wouldn't know that from the Week in Politics segment on Friday's PBS NewsHour. Liberal analyst Mark Shields gave it a "B for bombast and bullying and belligerence." Pseudo-conservative analyst David Brooks called it " […]

  • Why Bila Left 'The View': CNN Tipped Her ABC Was Recruiting Meghan McCain September 23, 2017
    After Jedediah Bila surprised viewers by announcing she was leaving The View crew on ABC after just a year, reports quickly surfaced that ABC was in negotiations with Meghan McCain shortly after she departed Fox News. The London Daily Mail reported Bila was “blindsided by the shakeup” when she was told by a “friend at CNN” over last weekend. ABC apparently s […]

    The director of a film reviled by the American people highlighted rejecting science as an explanation for why the movie bombed. In a an interview with The Frame on Thursday, Mother! Director Darren Aronofsky responded to the film’s highly unusual F-grade Cinemascore this way: “... You have other people who basically believe in the power of a iPhone that they […]

  • The ‘Salon Left’ Is Killing the Democratic Party September 23, 2017
    Earlier this month, I wrote an op-ed for The Hill where I argued that Republicans should support President Trump and follow his electoral formula, or “die” — i.e., face extinction as a party.  The piece had an obvious target audience — establishment Republicans — with an obvious goal in mind — to get wishy-washy GOP elected officials on board with the Presid […]
