    Not at all. You know, I’ve got my email all set up to sort out carnival announcements for me and toss them into a tidy little folder that I open up at the end of the week, and use to put together these quick lists. Put me on your mailing list!

    Got that? A GOP lawmaker quietly gave a ministry some ships for secular work (medical assistance). The ministry sold the ships and made nearly a half-million dollars (on cop shows, they call this “flipping” property). The government didn’t know about any of this — under the faith-based initiative, there’s no accountability, audits, or follow-through after the earmark goes through. Religious groups get all the benefits and none of the strings. The government just assumes ministries are doing good work and deserve the unchecked earmarks.
