Egg-Tooth Opposes A Spending Request? WTF? December 11, 2007Posted by fitsnews in SC Politics.
THIS IS A FIRST, PEOPLE
FITSNews – December 11, 2007 – We couldn’t believe it either, but South Carolina’s free-spending Ways & Means Chairman Dan “Egg-tooth” Cooper has actually found something he doesn’t want to spend your money on. And of course, it totally figures that it’s something worthwhile that would actually help economic development in our state – specifically, land conservation.
Sure, we made fun of the whacko environmentalists last week for their God-awful video appeal to fringe liberal tree huggers, but they’re dead right when it comes to the need to spend more money to protect one of South Carolina’s most important competitive assets – its unique natural beauty.
As for Chairman Cooper finally meeting a funding request he didn’t like, well, all we can say is there’s a first time for everything. We’re sure he’ll be back to his old self (i.e. approving millions of taxpayer dollars for totally useless sh*t) any day now …
