Sounds good until you realize 3 things:



1- The taxayers had to send $600,000 to Wash to get $100,000 back.



2- Half of the money will just be spent on the costs of reporting compliance to the feds for having spent the money.



3- The rest goes to the Governor's mentally defective nephew so they can hire him as the "State Motorcycle Safety Czar".

Default Whooeee!

Wow! One hundred-whole-grand coming to the state that just calmly announced that it was going to spend $650,000 (yes six hundred and fifty thousand) to "rennovate" a big metal peach that is dropped on new year's eve in Atlanta (a la the big apple in NYC).



Excuse me if I don't waste the quarter on a phone call to the capital building to demand accountability for that money. $100,000.00, lol if I wasn't laughing I'd be crying.

Which portions of the PORK will be eaten by lawyers, administrators, and advertising gurus?



I would guess, "All".



Free money from the federal government must be spent.



Almost makes one wonder how the "Govorner" and his aides from "Main" managed to meet the qualification criteria.
