    calling this pork bill "sandy relief" is like the NDSAP calling the construction and operation of Auschwitz "the refugee relief bill" because it provided free train transportation.  maybe it's time to insist on some honesty from our government.  politics as usual

      I HR you for making that repugnant analogy. Have a little sensitivity.

        since you claim to have completely missed the point, when less than 1/3 of the Relief Bill is for Sandy victims and the rest is Pork, why isn't it called the "more spending on stuff other than sandy relief bill"?  the folks bitching about boehner not caring about NJ and Long Island ought to be bitching at the senate and president who piled on 200% MORE spending on top of Sandy victim relief.  i don't know what HR means but i'm pretty certain it's a slam on My feeble attempt in appraising how "repugnantly" our government works.  it's hard to tell where you're coming from with your name calling. all i can say is i was not trying to make a joke.

          your post is attacking a member of the community here, as well as seeming to advocate tea party views.

          Do you realize where you are posting?

          It means that you posted something so repugnant, no-one should be able to see it. It's not an insult, and you don't help yourself by digging deeper when you're already in a pit. I'm sure you'll be banned from this site soon if you keep this up.
