Before everybody flies off the handle and starts getting upset about the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill, perhaps we should step back and analyze some of the worthy projects.

$125,000 – Fishery equipment for the Guam Fisherman’s Cooperative Association

Ever been to Guam? Trust us, this is more than fair, especially since it’s about to tip over.

$413,000 – Peanut research in Alabama

We’re not quite sure how peanuts sneak into every congressional bill, but kudos to the brave men and women that slipped that it in.

$349,000 – Swine waste management in North Carolina

It’s a big problem, especially when the wind starts blowing.

$522,000 – Cranberry and blueberry disease and breeding in New Jersey

In our opinion, this can be done for $350,000, but still hugely important.

$500,000 – Oyster safety in Florida

Ever eaten a bad oyster. Yeah, keep this one in there.

$400,000 – Solar parking canopies and plug-in electric stations in Kansas

Is this for tractors or cars?

$165,000 – Maple syrup research in Vermont

Everyone knows there is maple syrup in Vermont. We admit, this one is  a waste!
