    Earmarks don't stand alone; they're folded into other bills. Without a line-item veto (which I don't really the president should have anyway), he generally ends up accepting the earmarks.

    Which, as has been pointed out over and over, amount to around 1% of the budget.

    It is not within the powers of the government to help its citizens get into heaven, nor to save them from hell.
