If Diogenes were here today, he would not be searching inside the Beltway. Nor would he search in blue states or among the denizens of the mass media...places where truth is an unknown quality. It's possible he would have already given up his search for "an honest man" and, instead, be searching for a man or woman with "chutzpah"...people possessed of the audicity to honor truth and honesty.
Both Democrats and Republicans say, "We're broke" And can't help our own Veterans, Seniors, Orphans, Etc.,??? But, over the last several years, they have provided direct cash aid to...
Hamas - $351 M,
Libya $1.45 Billion,
Egypt - $397 M,
Mexico - $622 M,
Russia - $380 M,
Haiti - $1.4 Billion,
Jordan - $463 M,
Kenya - $816 M,
Sudan - $870 M,
Nigeria - $456 M,
Uganda - $451 M,
Congo - $359 M,
Ethiopia - $981 M,
Pakistan - $2 Billion,
South Africa - $566 M,
Senegal - $698 M,
Mozambique - $404 M,
Zambia - $331 M,
Kazakhstan - $304 M,
Iraq - $1.08 Billion,
Tanzania - $554 M,
A total of $14,933,000,000. - that's 14.933 BILLIONS of Dollars and they all still hate us.!!! Where do they think they will get their handouts when and if the U.S. is destroyed? When will they understand that it's not wealth which separates us but it is our ideology, our national spirit...our beliefs. Could it be that our education system has been marginalized by politicians simply to appear to be leveling the playing field? Why should we feed the world first...before feeding the starving citizens of the United States that are in dire need of the means and resourses to live day to day?
But, on the other hand, OUR MILITARY IS BEING CUT, OUR SOLDIERS ARE HAVING THEIR BENEFITS CUT & THE GOVERNMENT'S GONE BACK ON IT'S PROMISE OF FREE MEDICAL CARE & DENYING DISABILITY TO THOSE PHYSICALLY & MENTALLY TORN APART, FOR NO GOOD REASON, IN POLITICAL WARS!
Our retired seniors, living on 'fixed incomes', have their taxes raised, to send money to these countries, & also, are having medical benefits cut. Our own citizens receive NO aid, unless they're the ones who refuse to work and have babies for welfare payments!
Nor do the seniors and working public get any breaks, while our government & religious organizations will pour Hundreds of Billions of Dollars, and Tons of Food, to Foreign Countries, the illegals, and the leeches within our borders!
A country where we have our brave warriors, damaged for life, waiting in year long lines for their due, the elderly going without needed medication, and the mentally ill without treatment, and for all of us, our safety is at risk, because prisoners are being released, back onto the streets, due to "lack of funds" -- etc. and YET... they'll have a "Benefit Show" for the people of Haiti, on 12 TV Stations; with ships & planes lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors & medical supplies.
Now Just Imagine, if our own *GOVERNMENT* gave the UNITED STATES the same support they give foreign countries. Sad, isn't it?
Logic is dead. Excellence is punished. Mediocrity is rewarded.
IF WE HAD CHUTZPAH, PERHAPS WE WOULD NEVER BE PUT IN THE SITUATION'S WE ARE EXPERIENCING. IF OUR POLITICIANS HAD CHUTZPAH, WE WOULD BE ABLE TO TRUST THEM TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR AMERICA. IF OBAMA HAD CHUTZPAH, HE MIGHT FIND A THREAD OF HONESTY WITHIN HIMSELF. IF THE PHONIES IN HOLLYWOOD HAD CHUTZPAH, THE WOULD JOIN A SIDE SHOW AND MAKE AN HONEST LIVING.
SINCE WE HAVE BEEN BURDENED WITH A PRESIDENT WHO CARES LITTLE OR NOTHING--FOR OUR PEOPLE AND OUR WAY OF LIFE PERHAPS WE SHOULD BE SEARCHING FOR SOME CHUTZPAH. WE HAVE HAD A TREACHEROUS STREAM OF POLITICIANS IN RECENT YEARS AND WE ALL HOPE FOR BETTER TIMES AHEAD. THANK YOU TO ALL AMERICANS WHO READ THIS.
