WHAT PORK?
please cite what was funded and the amount that you considered pork in the Sandy relief act.
I'm guessing you are just repeating what your programmers at Fox news told you to say and don't have a clue as to what the relief act funded
POLLY WANT A CRACKER
•$2 million to repair damage to the roofs of museums in Washington, D.C., while many in Hurricane Sandy’s path still have no roof over their own heads.

•$150 million for fisheries as far away from the storm’s path as Alaska.

•$125 million for the Department of Agriculture’s Emergency Watershed Protection program, which helps restore watersheds damaged by wildfires and drought.

•$20 million for a nationwide Water Resources Priorities Study.

•$15 million for NASA facilities, though NASA itself has called its damage from the hurricane ‘minimal.’

•$50 million in subsidies for tree planting on private properties.

•$336 million for taxpayer-supported AMTRAK without any detailed plan for how the money will be spent.

•$5.3 billion for the Army Corps of Engineers – more than the Corps’ annual budget – with no statement of priorities about how to spend the money.

•$12.9 billion for future disaster mitigation activities and studies, without identifying a single way to pay for it.

okay, what pork?
identify the funds you consider pork where were they allocated to and for how much
should be easy, unless of course you don't have a clue and are just repeating Fox news talking points
Are you going to naively state their is no pork in bills?

Here are some examples in 2006 federal spending bill

$13.5 million for an Irish group that funds the World Toilet Summit?

$1 million for water-free urinals?

$500,000 for a teapot museum?

how about the findings from the Pickering/Mullen report
"WASHINGTON -- The seasoned diplomat who penned a highly critical report on security at a U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, defended his scathing assessment but absolved then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. "We knew where the responsibility rested," Thomas Pickering, whose career spans four decades, said Sunday.
"They've tried to point a finger at people more senior than where we found the decisions were made," Pickering said of Clinton's critics.
The Accountability and Review Board, which Pickering headed with retired Adm. Mike Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, did not question Clinton at length about the attacks but concluded the decisions about the consulate were made well below the secretary's level. Pickering's defense of his panel's conclusions, however, was unlikely to quiet Republicans' calls for accountability for the attacks that left four Americans dead, including an ambassador.
Pickering and Mullen's scathing report released in December found that "systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels" of the State Department meant that security was "inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.""
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/12/thom...
Pickering credibility is in deep trouble as he ONLY interviewed middle level career employees claiming he knew without interviewing the higher-ups that these were the people responsible.

BIASED report

Last week it was discovered that Patrick Kennedy was connected to the events. Kennedy was in Pickering's "magical circle of people who could not possibly been involved."

<quoted text> Actually, New York City , because of its more efficient urban design features, like being close to mass transit systems, less exurban sprawl, etc. uses energy with less waste then Phoenix , Miami , or any other large , overdeveloped Sun Belt city of comparable size and population density. So, New York's lesser energy needs means they'll pay less than someone living in the Sun Belt.
There are far too many variables involved to make that statement fairly.

Regional energy costs can vary widely. For example, "Waste" heat in northern climes is piped underground and utilized for heating buildings and even Summer AC usage in hi-rises, etc. Compare this with a Miami Power Utility trying to sell its waste heat energy.

Turbines work most efficiently when heat-differentail is greatest - the ambient and internal temperatures. A NY Power Plant operating in an ambient of, say 10 degrees versus a Miami Power Plant with an ambient of, say, 96 degrees can make a big difference in regional Energy Costs because of efficiencies.

You are making claims without any links to back them up. Does NY have "efficient urban designs"? What IS "efficient urban designs".
Vague, gray area statements don't mean much here.

A Pollyanna Tree-Hugger can talk all day long using pleasantries and Fake Science but when faced with facts and realities of physics, they always wilt and then disappear.

People like you who go around constantly thanking everybody can't be taken seriously. Seriously, Suckass.
The only time I take death seriously is when it happens to good people. That's why I laugh at you and the ....yellow custard flowing from a dead dog's eye....
lol! son, I thank people for various reasons.

you don't thank anyone because, well, you're simply not thankful. but clearly, you offer your thanks when the person it's intended for can no longer listen to you. pretty useless, don't you think?

hence, the only beneficiary who has cleared his conscience is you.

pretty selfish in my book.

better yet, use LA as a model for mass transit. Oh yeah, its non existent, because in the 20s & 30s big oil and automotive companies brought up all the mass transit commuter trains and dismantled them. The goal, make LA dependent on oil and cars
no you moron-they have earthquakes. You can't have mass transit when you have tremors everyday of the year. Geez liberals are loons. Shake it up.

Unlike Obama who uses troops as lawn jockeys and stage props, President George W. Bush bonds strongly with the soldiers.
Class versus trash.
Of course, no one saw George W Bush give back his huge 'fee' for making an appearance at the bicycling charity event. No, he's never mingle with our Troops unless he was getting paid for it. LOL
