    Got this from a friend of mine. I haven't verified if the amounts mentioned in the post are correct or not. But the sentiment is the same...

    OUR POLITICIAN'S PRIORITIES

    Nothing will change until all sitting senators and congressman are forced out and replaced with term limit replacements!


    DEMOCRATS & REPUBLICANS,

    We read all the jokes & forward the good ones but, I just wonder who will pass this one on.

    How about you sending it on, & back to me, if you have enough 'chutzpah' to do so.

    I do. And, I wonder just how many I'll get back?

    Someone please tell me, what's wrong with all the people that run this country.!!!!

    Both Democrats and Republicans they 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 & they all still hate us.!!!

    But, on the other hand,

    OUR MILITARY IS BEING CUT,ANOTHER 40K THIS YEAR 2015,
    OUR SOLDIERS ARE HAVING THEIR BENEFITS CUT & THE GOVERNMENT'S GONE BACK ON ITS PROMISE OF FREE MEDICAL CARE & IS 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 to these countries, NO MORE FOREIGN AID, & also, are having their medical benefits cut.

    Our own citizens receive NO aid,unless they're the ones who refuse to work, & have babies for welfare payments!

    Nor do the seniors & working public get any breaks, while our government& religious organizations will pour Hundreds of Billions Of dollar's,& Tons of Food, to Foreign Countries & the illegals, & the leeches within our borders!

    AMERICA:

    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,
    & the mentally ill without treatment,
    & for all of us, our safety is at risk,
    because prisoners are being released,BO just released another 90
    back onto the streets, due to "lack of funds " they say (country club prisons) & 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 'US' the same support they give foreign countries.

    ________________________________________

    Sad, isn't it?

    99% of people won't have the 'chutzpah' to forward this.

    WELL, I'm one of the 1% who just did.!!

    Logic is dead. Excellence is punished.

    Mediocrity is rewarded.

    Logic and excellence are actually learned traits. Some do learn them with a bit more ease and/or earlier than other, but they are still learned. They are just not taught in many places.

    I'm 100% against foreign aid, but what's even worse is the fact that if it weren't for false flags and straight up lies, we probably wouldn't have had any veterans of foreign wars for at least the last 50 years or so. It's just such a darn shame no one took heed of Washington's and Eisenhower's Farwell Addresses.

    It's kind of curious that Israel foreign aid wasn't on the list... I wonder why? Curious.

    The Congressional Research Service's report "U.S. Foreign Aid to Israel," written by Jeremy M. Sharp, Specialist in Middle Eastern Affairs, dated June 10, 2015.

    According to the report, the Obama Administration gave Israel $3.1 billion for Fiscal Year 2015 in direct bilateral military aid (also referred to as Foreign Military Financing or FMF). The U.S. government also gave $619.8 million for "joint" U.S.-Israel missile defense programs (designed to protect Israeli territory from potential outside threats), bringing total military aid to Israel to $3.7 billion per year.

    Good question, I can't answer that.

    But add that amount to the total and it gets worse...

    The likely answer can be found in AIPAC. They pretty much run the show here.
