    Get on 'em right away if the following stimulus spending pisses you off:

    •$554,763 for the Forest Service to replace windows in a closed visitor center at Mount St. Helens
    •$762,372 to create “Dance Draw” interactive dance software
    •$62 million for a tunnel to nowhere in Pittsburgh, PA even Democratic Governor Ed Rendell called “a tragic mistake”
    •$1.9 million for international ant research
    •$1.8 million for a road project that is threatening a pastor’s home
    •$308 million for a joint clean energy venture with…BP
    •$89,298 to replace a new sidewalk that leads to a ditch in Boynton, OK
    •$3.8 million for a “streetscaping” project that has reduced traffic and caused a business to fire two employees
    •$16 million to help Boeing to clean up an environmental mess it created in 2007
    •$200,000 to help Siberian communities lobby Russian policy makers
    •$39.7 million to upgrade the statehouse and political offices in Topeka, Kansas
    •$760,000 to Georgia Tech to study improvised music
    •$700,000 to study why monkeys respond negatively to inequity
    •$193,956 to study voter perceptions of the economic stimulus
    •$363,760 to help NIH promote the positive impacts of stimulus projects
    •$456,663 to study the circulation of Neptune’s atmosphere
    •$529,648 to study the effects of local populations on the environment…in the Himalayas

    This is the way the candy store boys treated our future. And it should be nipped in the bud. These bogus "projects" should be pulled ASAP.

    They've been sending $$$$$$$$$ to WA (state) for years now to destroy road systems on National (public) Forest land to keep you out and help eco-freaks add land to parks!!

    If you hunt or camp in the Gold Creek area in the Methow Valley, that area is slated for distruction this next year.

    Sell your 4x4's because when they are done, you'll only be allowed on paved roads!!!!
