From the song “While You Were Sleeping”

As we’re sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children

The semi-satire needs to add something like

“Every life is precious,” explained Representative Nancy Pelosi, “except, of course, human babies. They will grow up to eat plants. They will become plant terrorists.”

I never could keep a plant alive.

Getting bulldozed, it might still have a chance.

The median household income in the US in 2010 was $52,026. This consumed and destroyed the total income of 4 households. A clown could have figured out how to use this money more efficiently.

“Every life is precious,” explained Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) in whose district the expenditure was made. “Just because the same plant can be bought from a commercial nursery for under $20 doesn’t mean we should wantonly kill one merely because it is unwanted. Luckily, we were able to find it an adoptive home.”

She says the exact opposite about unborn children where she is willing to spend money to abort them rather than to help them to be born alive.

“While some may perceive that this escapade is another in a long list of wasteful government expenditures, Pelosi pointed out that “the $200,000 in spending helped support employment in my district, which is exactly what the stimulus bill was supposed to do.”

Under Keynesian economic theory, total economic activity = C + I + G, where C is consumer spending, I = Investment and G = government spending. So, in Keynesian-think when government spends money to dig holes and then fill them back up, it has the same exact benefit as when consumers spend money. In other words, there is no such thing as wasteful government spending.

The only part of this that is satire is the Pelosi quote.

The GOP needs to make a commercial of this abuse of public spending.
But of course they won’t, cause they the GOP and DEMS are the same, spend until you drop. After all it’s the publics money.
