What's more important? 50 Million for Schools or 50 Million Fish Food?
Did you guess wrong? * Was this a smart way to use Stimulus Money? Couldn't the "Fish" Industry cut back? And money spent here will never come back to the tax payers. Kinda Stinks Huh. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5j9enRb6BS9WdduDT5wvI_JnsQi6QD98PC5B00 $50M in stimulus will help fish farmers buy feed 1 day ago OSAGE BEACH, Mo. (AP) — The United States is about to spend $50 million in stimulus money on fish food to help fish farmers who have been struggling since feed prices jumped 50 percent last year. The money could provide algae to nourish clam and oyster larvae along the Pacific coast, fill the bellies of tilapia in Arizona and feed catfish, trout and gamefish in the Midwest and South. Supporters say many fish farms are in already poor areas. They say the money will help keep the farms going and preserve jobs in areas hard hit by the recession and lacking other industries. Much of the money is likely to end up in Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas — the nation's largest catfish producers. Catfish accounts for one-third of the nation's $1.4 billion aquaculture industry. _____________________________ Russ ; Maybe you could call all the GM/Chrysler dealerships that were forced to CLOSE. Those dealerships didn't cost GM/Chrylser or US the tax payer 1 cent. BTW I would chose Kids Education of Fish Food. ____________________________ Mr. Wolf : Sorry but VP Joe Biden came out today and announced the Stimulus isn't going to produce JOBS. You can get the link on my prior post. ________________________ Steven J: Those codoms were to PREVENT aids in Africa. _____________________________ lawgirl : Saving, maybe a few JOBS at 50 Million? Are they part of a Union and can't cut back their salary? Don't you think the fish company could have come up with a better way? Six Flags is filing Chapter 11 -- They Employee people. SO WHERE is their Stimulus? We could have Government Flags...... Thousands of Companies in the USA are hurting and they are not getting a hand out. Obama sent a condom contract to China. 198 people lost their JOBS in Alabama. It seems Obama is paying OFF more campaign contributers. 50 Million in Fish FOOD?!? We all should be outraged. WE don't need that much FISH. Oysters? Please. It's not a necessary.

Schools of course. Obviously this is another "gift" to the fisheries,they must have been big O campaign supporters.Why is no one even questioning let alone investigating why the price of the fish food doubled last year-seems to be a clear case of price gouging!

ACORN needs a lot of money for fish food like most thugs, they turn their opponents into fish food, so the government funded study is necessary

It's absurd - but anything that comes from this administration is backwards.

Pssst, the US spends more money on schools than almost anyplace without commensrate results. Better to have people working.

I take it from your comments you think money for the schools are ok. If it weren't for the stimulus package neither group would be helped.

Pouring even more money into education is just as big a waste: thecartelmovie.com

It says right in the article that people believe it will save jobs. Hence, being in the stimulus bill. It seems you are focusing on a few key words and not looking at the big picture.
