The Virtual Vitamin

A Daily Dose of Insight and Common Sense

Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs

The earmark culture in Washington brings out the kid in all of us, strapped into the shopping cart with all of the sugary cereals placed just within reach.  What we want taking priority over what we need.  We wait like children at the door asking, “What did you bring me?” $18.5 billion a year is spent on congressional pet projects to appease the voters.  With tantrums ensuing if our district isn’t getting what we feel is deserved.   We need to dismiss the cartoon endorsed packages for ones with true character and real substance.  It’s time to grow up and start buying cereal for its nutritional value, rather than the prize at the bottom of the box.
