All Pork is Local; Miscellaneous Edition

Why are we not taking an axe to Radio Marti? That's $28 million a year down a rathole.

Not only did I not know that the Troubled Assets Relief Program (you know, the huge-ass bailout to save the skins of the fuckers that caused the current recession) had their own cops, they have badges, guns, official TARP windbreakers and body armor.

TARP cops? What the fuck for? I can understand auditors, but why the hell do they need badges and guns? are they afraid that a teller is going to assault them with a stapler?
