This could be funny if it wasn't about to cost each and every U.S citizen about $23,000...$7 trillion true cost of bail out divided by 300 million citizens (approximate population of U.S.) and greatly prolonging the downturn in the stock market, housing prices and general economy.
Section 503 of the bill the Senate is about to vote on:
SEC. 503. EXEMPTION FROM EXCISE TAX FOR CERTAIN WOODEN ARROWS DESIGNED FOR USE BY CHILDREN.
I'd post all the other stupid pork here (basically the entire 500, 600 and 700 sections which start at page 261 and go to the end) and some of the glaring loopholes in "taxpayer protections" (the first 261 pages:) but then I'd have to add a tag in the blog for depressing. I'd also like to encourage others to read the Senate's 451 page "Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008". I can pretty much guarantee that your senator hasn't read it. I doubt the House Representative's read their version. It was light stupid summer reading of only 110 pages...it skipped the part about toy arrows :)
...even the Exxon Valdez made the bill....I thought we had our fill of that in "Waterworld".
