Ottawa to offer $75M to hog farmers


Save the pork industry,
That is our prime concern,
Pork for pork from the money tree,
When will we ever learn?
Pork the politicians know somehow,
This another case in point,
Future piglets from this sow,
With many future votes anoint,
Money on the barrel head,
A hundred mill or so,
More votes and pork this sow has bred,
More votes and much more dough,
But never mind, who cares, the vegetarian life,
More meat, more pork, more beef,
Health care costs and all that strife,
In meat we do believe,
Leadership in pork and swill,
Clear thinking way ahead,
More pork we need to kill,
Or put an industry to bed,
Show me the way my friend,
Lead on, lead on,
On pork my money spend,
Keep spending till it’s gone,©15/08/2009

politicians, ethics, credibility, accountability and immense sums of money paid by hard working citizens intaxes are always a disaster waiting to happen -- we suffer from what every government in history has been afflicted with -- greedy thieves who feel they have to answer to no one -- too much bureaucracy divided into too little money will always equal financial disaster -- fiscal conservatism is not a concept held by the majority of politicians -- great write Jasmin Horst my friend -- peace and love -- Jon Michael

Hog-Wash,it is! 75Mil for "oinks"?? Seems as the price of "chops" just went sky high, huh, Jas. Your title tells it all :o)

In the 1920's there was Pork Barrel Politics in Chicago (maybe it sneaked south from those Canadian vermin) and now we have the proof, 75.000.000 Canadians bucks to save their pigs? have them lipstick? can fly? are they Pink Panther rosy?
Oh boy! sell those pork-chops to Hamas! ! !

Love the title, Jasmin,
...pork barrel politics and everything associated with it...what are we buying and what are we selling? Well said!

Geez, the money has been gone that is why we must beg on our knees for money from foreign nations, so disgraceful...

Be always safe,
