The Year of the Jackal

Senator Shelby no longer believes in majority rule. What he does believe in is holding up the business of the country until he extorts the taxpayers money from the government.

According to the report, Shelby is holding Obama’s nominees hostage until a pair of lucrative programs that would send billions in taxpayer dollars to his home state get back on track.

Of course, this is Senator Shelby being responsible and bringing “jobs” into his state. It couldn’t possibly be … PORK, could it? Or an earmark?  Because he won’t be having none of that. Watch this video and see what Shelby has to say about earmarks.

    Oh no, of course it wouldn’t be an earmark, ’cause ya know that smacks of that “Socializm” stuff that turned Western Europe into the third world slum it is now…full of cheese eatin’ surrender froggies, the Germans with their light beer, and the Welsh… ewwwww the Welsh.

    Or so I’ve been told. 😉
