WELL?

Please tell me what the HECK wrong with


all the people that run this country!!!!!! 

Both

Republicans

&

Democrats

We're "broke"

and can't help

our own

Seniors,

Veterans,

Orphans,

Homeless,

etc.,???????????

In the last years we have provided direct cash aid to

Hamas - 351 M,

Pakistan - 2 B,

Libya 1.45 B,

Egypt - 397 M,

Mexico - 622 M,

Russia - 380 M,

Haiti - 1.4 B,

Jordan - 463 M,

Kenya - 816 M,

Sudan - 870 M,

Nigeria - 456 M,

Uganda - 451 M,

Congo - 359 M,

Ethiopia - 981 M,

Pakistan - 2 B,

South Afrika - 566 M,

Senegal - 698 M,

Mozambique - 404 M,

Zambia - 331 M,

Kazakhstan - 304 M,

Iraq - 1.08 B,

Tanzania - 554 M,

with literally Billions of Dollars and they still hate us!!!!

Our retired seniors

living on a 'fixed income'

receive no aid 

nor do they get any breaks while our government 
and religious organizations pour 
Hundreds of Billions 
of $$$'s and Tons of Food
to Foreign Countries!

We have 
hundreds of adoptable 
children who are shoved aside

to make room for

the adoption of

foreign orphans.

AMERICA: a country where we have

homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication and mentally ill without treatment -etc.

YET.......................

They have

a 'Benefit' 
for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations,

ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies. 

Imagine if
the *GOVERNMENT*

gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries. 

Sad isn't it?

We can change this. Let's say that you can only vote if you have a job or in some other way are contributing to the tax base of this Country. This way we may be able to elect people that would make better decisions than to give to countries who want to kill us.

"We The People" need to get off our rear and do something about this soon.

This is Obama redistributing the wealth. Hows that hope and change working for you now.

It is very sad, but don't look for a change any time soon.

Nobody cares about the old not having enough food or medicine. But let a drug dealing young man who has fathered several kids without marrying their mothers need food or health care and see who gets help. Seems that if you don't make responsible decisions, the government will be right there to help you.

I am embarrassed to be living in this country.

Its time for another Boston Tea party against our own government. I say we dump all politicians in the harbor.

And on top of this, I am hearing that some liberal/democrat is trying to make it legal to have Obama run again in four more years. Just think, Obama as our lifetime president......makes me pretty sick to my stomach. The libs would love this even more as it gives them more years of "free stuff" while I am out there working six days a week trying to survive and pay the bills.

I believe they are "bribes" or whatever you want to call it. Our gubment is paying these countries this money as promise they will not agress against us or their neighbors. It can't be JUST humanitarian.

Senior receive nothing from the government? Really? I guess their Social Security and Medicare are "nothing." These two programs massively dwarf any foreign aid or other welfare programs. These two government programs that are used almost exclusively by seniors are going to bankrupt our nation very soon.

A Million Man ARMED march on D.C. should go a long way to convincing these snakes that their time is up. Give 'em 5 minutes to get their coat. Not a second longer.

Which they contributed to from their paychecks.
Social Security is not the cause of America’s budget deficit. In fact, it’s a self-financed program that’s separate from the federal budget. Workers and employers finance the Social Security program by paying a 6.2% payroll tax.

• Social Security still has a large surplus. Its trust funds hold $2.8 trillion in special-issue Treasury bonds. These assets are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States.

• The trust funds can only be used to pay Social Security benefits.

Social Security does face a long-term shortfall, but that fact should not be exaggerated or distorted. According to its trustees, Social Security can pay all benefits through about 2033 — and 75 percent after that.

So, we do need a debate on Social Security. But we need the right kind of debate.

It should focus on retirement security for older Americans today and young people who will need retirement security in the future.

It should be about keeping Social Security financially stable for the 21st century. But it should also recognize the critical importance of Social Security at a time when employer pensions have become scarce and millions face financial uncertainty in old age.

A political deal to meet numerical targets is not the way to conduct this debate – something that our political leaders have always understood. As Ronald Reagan put it: “Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit.”

In the weeks ahead, this reality is likely to be glossed over by politicians who will try to pin at least part of the blame for our budget woes on the program that’s the lifeline for nearly two-thirds of older households.

Don’t let ‘em fool you. And don't spread nonsense.

if you are on public assistance, i.e. welfare you can't vote. Its a confict of interest.

That would be great, 11:36. That means no one over 65 could vote (since they are on public assistance -- Social Security and Medicare) nor could many farmers.

Really think that's a great idea?
