Get Big Government Off My Back
From Crooks and Liars. Apparently, they wanted to cut those godless socialist programs that help others and not the prudent freedom loving programs that help them.
Back in February 2009, Republicans found a lot of risible spending in the stimulus bill. In his response to the State of the Union, Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., derided the stimulus for including “$140 million for something called volcano monitoring.” The gripe was mostly that the funding, mostly for U.S. Geological Survey upkeep, wasn’t stimulative. (This is a pretty good argument.) But Democrats honed in on that comment to decide that Republicans were going to try to cut funding for natural disaster monitoring.
Yeah, Tsunami/Earthquake/Hurricane warning systems are a total waste of money. Let the free market provide personal disaster prevention domes.
