So you personally gave them abouy $0.07. So what? Given the choice between this and and a lot of the other crappy places our lovely senators (both Dem and Rep.) choose to spend money our money (hmmm, $25,000 to Native Americans, $87,000,000,000 to Iraq) I'm sorry they didn't get $50,000.

It is not the magnitude, it is the principle. Do not tell me that it's only 7¢ when it is MYtaken against my will. Besides, this was also one example out of thousands of totally wasted giveaways that have NO legitimate basis. At least the funds wasted on Iraq have some connection to a legitimate governtmental function (defense). I'm going to stop here, lest this become a political thread (I really hate to pollute it further as the original thread was and is very good).
