    Arguing with a pig is like wallowing in the mud. Both get dirty but the pig enjoys it.

    That pretty much sums it up.

    In keeping with the pig metaphor, can PLSF be considered pork barrel politics?

    no it's a very narrow program that in no real way can be considered pork barrel politics I don't think. Universal student loan forgiveness would be a form of pandering (not actually universal of course as not everyone has student loans) but even then that's not the definition of pork barrel politics.

    And pork barrel politics is better than what we have now anyway. It's "you vote for a bridge in my district and I'll vote for a highway in yours", possibly wasteful but at least ALLOWING some sensible legislation if the right trades were made. Now we can't even pass an infrastructure bill. We have hard partisanship (not ideology as only a few really seem to have principles, so much as just raw partisanship) plus extreme corporate influence. It's a mess.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    This has been a tough one for me to answer as I initially had no clue. Now I think that the top three things definitely change as time and as I change. But right now, I think my top three are:

    1- my family - both immediate, extended and dragged in (lol) and my friends - new and old
    2- actually living and behaving in a manner consistent with my spiritual beliefs as often as possible
    3- being kind to others. I often forget that I am not so busy that I can't go out and help my elderly neighbor bring in her groceries or call the recent widower down the street just to say "hi".
