Being for Pork II

There has been a lot of talk lately about pork. I wonder how many senators on both sides sought to find out about the money given to the likes of Halliburton and its subsidiaries that have been fattened to healthy sizes ready for slaughter. Do you smell sizzling bacon?

Bacon indeed! Please, President Barack, find time to slaughter incinerate the whole hog!

Funny, thepoetryman! I am pretty disgusted with the whole lot. There are some good ones, but they seem to be like finding a needle in a haystack. Washington seems to have this power to change people for the worst, even after arriving with the noblest of intentions. Maybe terms limits are necessary.

I don't think the Framers envisioned senators and congresspersons being on the Hill indefinitely. They were meant to serve and then go back into their communities and live under the laws they legislated. Now, that would be great sooner rather than latter, eh? We have to really reconsider term limits.
