NC and the Stimulus

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………..
