Chris Christie Loses Control of His Gluttony for Other People’s Money

Never stand between a glutton and a plate heaped high with greasy pork, or you might have to listen to sanctimonious sniveling like this:

Even as the nation staggers toward bankruptcy under the crushing weight of government spending, Christie demands passage of $60.4 BILLION “Sandy Relief” package that consists largely of frivolous pork:

• $150 million for fisheries as far away from the storm’s path as Alaska.

• $125 million for the Department of Agriculture’s Emergency Watershed Protection program, which helps restore watersheds damaged by wildfires and drought.

• $20 million for a nationwide Water Resources Priorities Study.

• $15 million for NASA facilities, though NASA itself has called its damage from the hurricane ‘minimal.’

• $50 million in subsidies for tree planting on private properties.

• $336 million for taxpayer-supported AMTRAK without any detailed plan for how the money will be spent.

• $5.3 billion for the Army Corps of Engineers — more than the Corps’ annual budget — with no statement of priorities about how to spend the money.

• $12.9 billion for future disaster mitigation activities and studies, without identifying a single way to pay for it.

These days every tragedy is vastly magnified by bureaucrats exploiting it to steal our money and/or quash our liberties.

    The FAT One *IS* an enormous piece of pork himself. At least he isn’t shy about showing his true nature.

    Maybe he is smarter than I give him credit for and is looking at a run as a Democrat in 2016.

    Speaking of other people’s money, the EU is forcing Slovenia to take the Halo out of its 2-Euro piece.

    http://www.ukip.org/content/latest-news/2896-halo-goodbye-in-latest-bonkers-ec-ruling

    The European Commission has asked Slovakia to remove a cross and a two halos from its two-euro coin claiming they are Christian symbols that could upset other religions from other states.

    UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall hit back at the request, saying: “This move shows that the European Commission has no respect for the religious and cultural heritage of European countries.

    “The EU is a deeply secularising project hostile to Europe’s Christian believers. It is very telling the EU would demand that Slovakia remove Saint halos from its the coins. This demand to remove saint halos from Christian images happened during the Communist era.

    “Anybody Christian or believer in religious freedom should be a naturally opposed to the EU.”

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

    Christie is close to the caliber of a John Roberts; particularly if we consider his physical lust for Obama.

    And even more fat
    http://blog.heritage.org/2012/12/17/hurricane-sandy-relief-billions-spent-on-transportation/

    The disaster relief bill provides more than $12 billion for the Department of Transportation (DOT), of which $10.8 billion would go to the Public Transportation Emergency Relief program. This spending would in part pay for repairs to transit systems, but it could also be used for mitigation projects for future disasters. Further, up to $5.4 billion of the $10.8 billion could be diverted to other DOT agencies, to be spent on disaster mitigation and even to combat “the rise in sea levels.”

    The Senate also decided to include $17 billion in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) in the disaster bill. Intended to assist low-income families with housing and economic revitalization, the CDBG program also has funded pork projects such as the Mark Twain House and Museum, the Salvador Dali Museum, and the Helen Keller Birthplace Foundation.

  • MicahStone

    Actually, uber-RINO christie doesn’t think of the massive waste of money as PORK – he thinks of it in terms of DONUTS.

  • bobdog

    But…but…it’s EMERGENCY spending!

    Tough shit, Jelly Roll.

  • Antisocialist

    Another thief dishing out someone elses money to his thief guild members. This is the type of people you used to hang, now they run your land, probably started with the Robber Barons and now you have these Politicial thieves.

    “• $5.3 billion for the Army Corps of Engineers — more than the Corps’ annual budget — with no statement of priorities about how to spend the money.”

    are those the people that will confiscate your guns when the gun round ups start? I mean more than their annual budget extra for secret spending.

    The last act of an illegitimate government is wholesale looting. Grammaw was right when she said back in 2008: you better nail anything down you want to keep the democrats are in.

    Go ahead run for any office as a republican I dare you – you fat pce of Obama dung.

  • Son of Taz

    Just because he stood up to the public unions doesn’t make him a conservative. Christie has always been pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage, etc.

    He’s a phony, through and through.

    Ney Jersey can secede for all I care. Sorry that you didn’t get any obama stash.

    Son of Taz, and don’t forget he put a moslem on the Supreme Court of NJ AND he inserted his hat behind into the Ground Zero Victory mosk scandal in another state [NY] outside his jurisdiction.
