PORK WATCH

Seth came across a little pork in the recent federal farm bill...

SEC. 405. MULTI-SPECIES FRUIT FLY RESEARCH AND STERILE FLY PRODUCTION.

    (a) Construction- The Secretary of Agriculture shall construct a warehouse and irradiation containment facility in Waimanalo, Hawaii, to support fruit fly rearing activities and to house an irradiation to sterilize fruit flies.

    (b) Authorization of Appropriations- There are authorized to be appropriated--

      (1) $15,000,000 for the construction of a warehouse and irradiation containment facility pursuant to subsection (a); and

      (2) $1,000,000 for fiscal year 2008 and each subsequent fiscal year for maintenance to the facilities constructed pursuant to this section.



"$15 million to sterilize fruit flies. Yet somehow I think farmers might be happier if we spent $15 million to sterilize Congress."


Well Buck v. Bell has never technically been overturned so the forced sterilization of retards, criminals, inebriates, ne'er-do-wells, and the feeble minded is still in fact legal. I think Congress would fit all of these descriptions.
