Budget Follies

Our Congresscritters often like to make a show of how much waste there is in the Federal budget when slashing funds for hungry children by $5 billion because it's such a large number. Yet they bend over backwards to explain that the $50 billion spent in foreign aid is a pittance.

While they tell us to tighten our belts and pay more in taxes because the rich can't afford to and still create minimum wage jobs for us, the government spent $400,000 on a camel statue outside the US embassy in Islamabad.


Called "Camel Contemplating Needle," a play on the Bible verse Matthew 19:24, "And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (This verse is not it the TeaPublican Bible™. Obviously they believe that only the rich can get into heaven.)

This is why we have to stop helping the poor: We need sculptures in front of our Government offices.
