Ron Paul Wants $8,000,000.00 To Market Wild American Shrimp

It's in a subscribers only link at the Wall Street Journal. The Congressman wants $8,000,000.00 to pay for marketing of wild American shrimp and $2.3 million to fund research into shrimp-fishing.

These are but two of the Congressman's 65 earmarks sought thus far this year to the tune of $400,000,000.00.

Wild Thing's comment........

Thank you Gunnery Sgt.Benton for sending this to me.

What the heck are wild American Shrimp? LOL Oh maybe it's Shrimp that practice an immoral lifestyle. Much tastier than decent American shrimp.

So Ron Paul supports taxpayer dollars for the shrimping business, but not for our troops in Iraq, heh?

Aren't Mooslims against eating "fish w/o fins"?
They cannot tolerate this injustice!

Why is he getting so much money for stupid crap?
Maybe it's really icky crayfish he's trying to market--those ugly little nasty creatures in the pond scum.
Maybe he's wanting to pass them off as prawns to the unsuspecting idiots of the world.

I thought Libertarians were against government spending. Ron Paul and his followers are almost cultish. He will fade even more as this election heats up.

They've been catching and marketing wild shrimp from the ocean for hundreds of years. Maybe Paul is trying to funnel some taxpayer money to his followers.

Are these damn things 'Sea Monkeys' the ones advertised in Comic Books ? One of my Sons ordered them 35 years ago and the order still hasn't arrived yet, last time I asked him about them he was still confident they were on their way.

Since when is the American Government suppose to be involved in private business, much less promoting it. Ron Paul is a classless Putz with a capitol P and it ryhmes with whizz.

This is just another example of do as I do not as I say.

After the Larry Craig affair in the mens room I am now convinced there is nothing in Washington they a good High Colonic couldn't fix and instead of using water we can use Chlorox instead and really clean the bums out.

And this Yahoo is running for President, this guy is a joke.

Lynn, Hahahaha maybe so.

Tom, I thought so too about Liberterians.
Your right about his followers being a kind of cult.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 29, 2007 12:22 AM

Bob, maybe so, it sure is odd and a ton of money.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 29, 2007 12:24 AM

Mark, AMEN to what you said.

Gitmo menu should have nothing but pork!
