Your Hard Earned Money Goes To...

Here is is folks, what your hard earned money is going toward in the "Bailout Bill:"

  • Manufacturers of kids' wooden arrows - $6 million.
  • Puerto Rican and Virgin Is- lands rum producers - $192 million.
  • Wool research.
  • Auto-racing tracks - $128 million.
  • Corporations operating in American Samoa - $33 million.
  • Small- to medium-budget film and television productions - $10 million.

Who knew all these things would save the economy. Thank goodness we have such a responsible and fiscal government making wise decisions with taxpayer dollars - just makes ya feel so good, doesn't it? (Oink, oink).
