"Lawmakers' Global-Warming Trip Hit Tourist Hot Spots
Penguins, a Rocket-Propelled Airplane (and Tax Dollars) Also Involved

By BRODY MULLINS and T.W. FARNAM

"WASHINGTON -- When 10 members of Congress wanted to study climate change, they did more than just dip their toes into the subject: They went diving and snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. They also rode a cable car through the Australian rain forest, visited a penguin rookery and flew to the South Pole.
The 11-day trip -- with six spouses traveling along as well -- took place over New Year's 2008. Details are only now coming to light as part of a Wall Street Journal analysis piecing together the specifics of the excursion. ......"

They need to send the bill for their junket to the Senate here in NJ, the two nitwits who like to slip bills into other bills will take care of it. Then maybe they'll send it to the Obaminite arse kissers in DC, and they'll take care of everything, not to worry though, we'll all be on welfare by the time ole POTUS gets this signed......!

Thanks Maddog!!! Think the word in Washington is party hardy to bankrupt the nation faster. No group of people can be a stupid as they're acting and be walking around.
