    That's what I was going to post. What have the tax payers gained with this funding?

    And, it seems the purpose behind these federal cuts is to push the funding to the states. Get federal spending under control is going to painful for some. Just keep looking at this number to kep perspective on our government's insane spending:

    $19,918,866,420,000

    ... amassing about $3,000 every second.

    This right here ^^^

    People are crying and moaning about all these cuts, but let us note that we've been hemorrhaging money at these special interests for generations with diminishing return. Clearly throwing money at a problem isn't the answer.

    Having said that, my home state of PA needs to do more to get a handle on the pollution it sends down the Susquehanna.

    Also, if the Bay is "saved" CBF will be out of business.

    This is my thought about all these federally funded foundations, research groups, etc... If cancer is cured, all of those research people are out of a job.

    When women are "equal"...when black people are "equal"... Accomplishing their stated goal would put these orgs out of business and the folks who make money off it would have to look for other employment. Can't have that, so their "mission" will never be accomplished.

    The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is and will always be just an elite country club with the Bay as its golf course. The outings, the retreats in homes given to them in estates are all used by the elite class of donors. The little research they do and there annual assessments of the Bay are just advertising for more donations.
    They haven't accomplished a thing, but like stated by other posters if they came out and said the Bay is doing great they would lose donations

    I stopped donating to them 20 years ago.

    Like that local group of rich waterfront owners who pulled the bait and switch with Myrtle Point "Hey, county, buy this, would make a great resource, playing fields, water access, yeah, that would be great!!!!"

    "What? Ball fields for the poor kids? Water access for a lot of the rednecks? Cant have that in our neck of the woods, we mean it should be kept in it's natural form"
