Pork Details

An interesting list of some of the items in the so-called stimulus package from Michelle Malkin-

$88 million for the Coast Guard to design a new polar icebreaker (arctic ship)

$2 billion earmark to re-start FutureGen, a near-zero emissions coal power plant in Illinois that the Dept. of Energy defunded last year because the project was inefficient

$248 million for furniture at the new Dept. of Homeland Security headquarters

$1 billion for the 2010 Census, which has a projected cost overrun of $3 billion

$75 million for salaries of employees at the FBI

There's much more- go check it out.

I thought global warming was going to melt the ice caps, killing us all in the process. Why does the Coast Guard need a new Icebreaker.

Maybe they're going to use it for escort duties for Al Gore.

He does seem to be followed around by an awful lot of "global warming".
