Pork: Your Tax Dollars at Work

I just completed a cross country trip. Utah to Detroit. I've been traveling this route for years. There used to be a few windmills along the Continental Divide in Wyoming where the winds blow constantly.

But now there are windfarms springing up all across Nebraska and Iowa. Iowa - a state once known only for corn and pork, but now  infamous for being the first state to anoint the One.

There they are, shooting up out of the corn fields like Obama's budget projections, spinning, spinning, spinning till you're dizzy. It's a perfect lesson in Obamanomics:  take tax subsidized alternative energy sources, use it to grow tax subsidized corn, which is then used to make more tax subsidized alternative fuel. Now that's what I call makin' bacon.

No wonder BHO won the Iowa primary so handily.
