You may not care about politics and that's fine. Skip on past if that's the case.
If that's not the case, then plop by Captain Ed's blog and read about how the Porkbusters movement helped cut the Senate's asinine appropriations bill by an imense $13.5 billion. That's billion with a "b". According to Capt. Ed, that works out to $45 for every man, woman, and child in the USA.
The blogger-driven Porkbusters movement is responsible for much of the momentum for cutting out rediculous crap like Trent Lott’s $700 million railroad and a $200 million bailout for Northrop Grumman (whom I used to work for).
Polemics like Ann Coulter and the moonbats at Daily Kos aren’t good for much, but grass roots level movements like Porkbusters can indeed make a difference.
How cool is that?
