      There  not to many”Hot Button Issues” We could properly surmise that we can count them on one hand. Yet these same issues are dominating the news every night .The top ones are Abortion..Israel. Affirmative Action…immigration…
While we are not down playing or discounting the value or personal importance of these issues.What we are pointing out that it almost appears the media is making these issues their focal point and by doing so are creating an  atmosphere  of animosity and division among the populate as to steer everyone away from the real business at hand which is our elected officials in Congress making money for themselves and their friends (their campaign contributors and Lobbyists).
When a bill is passed it ‘s not a thin 2 page booklet but a  big thick publication like Ala Websters dictionary.There are a total of 535 Members of Congress. 100 serve in the U.S. Senate and 435 serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.   We would venture to say that every member of Congress has their hand in the pork barrel at one  time or another.
We further will go on to say that in reality it almost appears as if that is the Government is actually 90% Pork Barrel including government contracts ..grants ..federal jobs and Judgeship appointments and  only 10% actually policy making.
Think about it for a moment..the party faithful spends millions on a campaign for congress to get elected to a job that only pays a measly $174,000 a year. Why?
  So we got to walk away thinking perhaps all this perhaps is only a well orchestrated plan over the years only intended to be sort of a ploy in order to divert any and all attention from the all matters of business that those serving in Congress are up to... Could that be of raiding the Pork Barrel without any outcry or examination,scrutiny devoid of any public forum or  discussion of how our hard earned tax dollars are being spent?
 Tell us that we are wrong and this is not a Smoke Screen of sorts keeping Mr.&Mrs public in the dark and incumbency is not there basically for the Pork Barrel.Sad to say  we believe that if not for this cash cow the hall of Congress would empty.
