Washington, D.C. has become the Pork capital of the country...
The general "public" have long-since passed the point of perception and have arrived at the point of outrage at being shnookered into paying for special pork barrel projects for various states---by Congress-members' stealth "earmarks" that have nothing to do with the "public's" national business.
The folks' perception-turned-outrage has brought them to a final conclusion: "Earmarks" are big stinkin' oinkers!
Congress needs to clean up its 535 member Capitol sty... and its methods of conducting our business! Before we, the voters, do it for them in November!
