I just googled this and here are some great savings without hurting our Military and seniors of this Country.

1. Israel, $2.4 billion
2. Egypt, $1.7 billion
3. Pakistan, $798 million
4. Jordan, $688 million
5. Kenya, $586 million
6. South Africa, $574 million
7. Mexico, $551 million
8. Colombia, $541 million
9. Nigeria, $491 million
10. Sudan, $479 million

This is what we give to these countries of which most hate us. WHY????? Anyone have a calculator that would add this all up????

Is the irony not obvious.

Yes that was sarcastic.

Semper Fidelis... I will always stand by it, but fear it is no longer reciprocated.

I was listening to a radio program and they were really going to town on this one. I went to the VA Hospital and what a joke that was.

In the neighborhood of 8 billion 249 million given to countries that 80% hate our guts and never gave us anything but heartache and trouble. The folks running this great country need to be placed in a position where they can take advantage of the generous pension plans they have given themselves. I can envision a vet sitting in a VA hospital being fitted with a couple prosthetic limbs being told he now has to pay for his health care. Makes me wanna puke I'm so upset. I realize I have but one vote but hopefully I can make it count next November.

Hopefully enough folks will use their one vote to throw the bastards out and get a non professional politician congress. The longer they are in office the more corrupt they get.

Send your representatives a note telling them your feelings. Tell them to stop the spending on the dead-beats and illegals before they start doing our military folks dirty.

We all say to vote the old out...but come next inauguration day,how come the same faces keep popping up in the new congresses? I guess no-one is tired of the crushing of Americans or they would of done something about repeat reps. We have to blame us first, for allowing those same faces to continue to stab us.

If they want to save money and cut costs why the hell are we offering Libya (sp?) millions to rebuild when we don't even know who the heck the people gaining power are. I sure don't see anyone offering to help us.
