Another example of the misuse of Stimulus Funds has occurred in North Carolina. The Insect Museum in Raleigh received $253,123.00 to increase their outreach effort. Last year the Museum attracted 44 visitors. That is less than 1 person per week.
The Stimulus funds were used to:
- Purchase new furniture for the Museum
- Purchase new computers for the Museum
- Support an “Insect of the Week” on the Museum’s website
- Develop trading cards that would feature state native insects
The Stimulus continues to be a pork barrel that has little to do with being a “Job Creator”
November is coming………..
