Rand Paul (Senator from Kentucky) has pointed out a few wonderful items in the "Stimulus/Omnibus" combo bill that Trump has vetoed and Congress may over ride the Veto.

Lots of Pork Barrel Bullshiest spending super special interest campaign kickback back scratching quid pro quo style legislation.

A couple outstanding ultra scientific and infrastructure necessities .....

Spray alcoholic rats with bobcat urine😆

Lizards walking on treadmills, and eating ground-up insects😆

Paul points out some wastes from other bills that passed.



Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) released his annual report this week detailing government waste in honor of the parody holiday “Festivus,” highlighting over $54 billion in taxpayer dollars spent on items including a study examining eating ground-up bugs, spraying alcoholic rats with bobcat urine, and walking lizards on a treadmill.

“Good morning and Happy #Festivus. Today we will air some more grievances in the holiday tradition!” Paul said in a lengthy Wednesday tweetstorm, highlighting various ways the government has wasted millions of taxpayer dollars over the last year alone:

I don't do commi-coffee. If it's not made by me or my sister, I don't drink it. Oh, by the way, I drink it straight black.

All of those ridiculous programs where they will send money for are fake, maybe all or most fake. The money gets there and the mostly democrats on the receiving end of the money funnel and launder it right back to their campaign funds and other places.

How to you think Pelosi got to be able to afford 60,000 dollar freezers full of 15 dollar pint sized gourmet ice cream?

With these kinds of bills.

What they really deserve is the death penalty.

Wow, you should be happy. After part B we are only getting a twelve dollar increase. I read months ago that since Seniors got the stimulus check, it essentually covered most of the cost of living increase we were to get. Prices went up a lot for four or five months and some stuff has not come down. I really did not expect to get a cent.

Pakistan, a country of 200 million people, gets 20 million dollars.

Israel, a country of 9 million, gets 500 million dollars, in addition to the 8 billion dollars they got normally.

Nothing out of the ordinary there, no sir.
