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.
