    In the midst of a colossal global concern for the economic stability of our great nation, Emanuel Cleaver, Missouri's 5th Congressional District representative, has one small earmark on his wish list that deserves some attention.

    Cleaver has listed a new earmark -- one of several -- and he promises to "fight for every one." But this is a whopping $48 billion package that must go down as the grandaddy of all earmarks.

    Proposed by a gentleman named Lamar Mickens, president of the not-for-profit Quality Day Campus, the $48 billion earmark would funnel money into the inner cities to give money to the poor and thereby produce a much larger consumer class to buy the goods and services produced in this country.

    Just call this redistribution on steroids.

    I have already expended Cell Phone Minutes and Called Sen Demint and my own two Senators Chambliss and Iaasakson to encourage them to resist the omnibus bill **EVEN** if it means shutting down the Government!

    It's way past time for the line in the sand to mean something!

    Are we serious about cleaning up Congress?
