WOMEN (thought that might get your attention lol)
DOMINIQUE took the wind out of my sails on this one.
Received an email today from my favorite charity. CAGW as I’ve posted before they are a nonpartisan government watchdog group of citizens a million members strong. I contribute 2-3 times a year only around $25 each time. So I’m not a rich guy, to me $25.00 is a lot. I’ll pick up a beer can in the street. Back to topic. I like this group because they actually take action. They are getting national air play. They publish the pig book which lists the worst cases of pork each year and run letter writing campaigns as this email to me is.
-----Anyway back to Dominique. I decided after reading the email and sending my Congressmen a heads up, that I would write my article today on it. I’m in favor of smaller more efficient government as you may know if you read any of my articles. Well I started digging out the meat and history of the “Tanker” deal. Below is a link to the email I received on the Tanker deal from Citizens Against Government Waste
While the original Tanker deal was to go to Boeing the pork was out of control, John McCain has always been fighting pork and he has been fighting this juicy mouthful for a long time with Phil Gramm. The below link is from 2002.
All well and good I was getting warmed up ---then I found the link below by Dominique.
She was in the Air Force. After reading her article I realized that I would just be saying the same things as she so I decided to give you all a break and let a woman give you the skinny on this one. Besides having beeen in the Air Force she is closer to the action. A tip of the hat to Dominique and her nice blog site.
Be prepared to start hearing news reports about how unpatriotic the Grummand tanker deal is and that Boeing is better. Unions were lined up behind Boeing. Looks like Dominique and myself are behind the taxpayer. Let’s see, costs less, and a better product.????? Hmmmmmmmmm. Well I guess I won’t listen to Mr. Murtha on this one.
