$1.2 Million in Stimulus Loot Fed to Squirrels

Some people wonder in awe how the Moonbat Messiah has managed to hold unemployment to only about twice what it was before Democrats took over Congress in 2006. His secret: stimulus spending. Here’s where the money goes:[1]

An Arizona Department of Transportation project to install 41 canopy tunnel bridges on Mount Graham to aid the sustainability of the endangered Mount Graham red squirrel will be entirely funded by stimulus money from the federal government.

According to Bill Harmon, ADOT’s Safford District engineer, preliminary numbers suggest the project will cost about $1.2 million.

Here’s how flushing $1.2 million of your money down the toilet on behalf of a rodent will “stimulate” the economy:

Harmon … believes the project will be an enhancement to the area for various reasons, including providing jobs for the construction and maintenance of the bridges and equipment, bringing more scientists to the area who will require local services and increasing eco-tourism in the area.

Bureauweenies have grown arrogant enough to feed us this crap with a straight face while millions are out of work, kept that way by a government grown so huge that it is smothering the economy.
