We cheer our congresspeople when they "bring home the bacon" in the form of some federal tax money "earmarked" for a local project. How stupid we are! It would have been better if the money had never left the state in the first place and the federal government had not raked off some significant percentage in administrative overhead! We are paying the federal government to give us back some of our own money. WHY??
