Pendergast,I don't understand foreign aid given in the past
either. It doesn't justify the handouts of today.Countries who burn our flag and kill our people,---qualify for benefits?
LDS Liberal & Srewdriver,Where's your rebuttal? Soul has a
good point. How do you defend this?
@ worf 7:58 p.m. Sept. 29, 2012I, by no means, am a Obama supporter.
Foreign Aid has been the status quo for decades. Marshall plan, anyone?What about the photo of Rumsfeld w/ Saddam in the early 80's, the Reagan
admin being chummy w/ Manuel Noriega, or even supporting Britian who had issues
w/ Mosaddegh nationalizing Iranian Oil and eventually in came the Shah.
Give away (money, blood, sweat, and tears) and FOR WHAT in return? Our
reputation is shot; our dignity tarnished, our resolve diminished; and our
country vulnerable to attacks. What kind of leadership would reward
$450,000,000 to a "not an enemy" like Egypt in 2012, for not supporting
the US, and just to appease them?
Will the Obama supporters please explain this action?With the
struggles of our own country! Why give our tax money away? There has already
been billions given away in the past few years. WHY?Don't
excuse this with George Bush.
Wow!! Someone slaps you in the face, and you want to give more money? Where is
Obama getting the money? Why not take money from his own wages and
give it away.
Good job, Texas!!! Now cut the strings to every single country that we have
been supporting for the past 50 years. Someone recently said, "Stop paying
everyone to hate us. They can now do it for free!!!" Does Washington
really think that our check makes a difference? How embarrassing that we have
no backbone left and the world sits and laughs at our stupidity.
Good. Now if we can just block aid to Israel and all of these other countries
that suck our coffers dry, we will be talking.
Moral here is simple Don't Mess with Texas :)This Texas
politician has my support and I only wish the upper levels of our current
"leadership" would be making some effort to express the wishes of the
people in this matter!
Wow, we really need to stop sending our tax dollars to countries abroad and
instead use this money for something more productive like paying down our
national debt. I'm surprised we as a nation are not more upset about this!
Finally a member of congress who knows how our congress should work, should we
aid and comfort our enemies?Let Egypt fall on its own sword, looking at
the reports they have attacked our embassy, burnt our flag, made us part of
their religion to kill us as infidels.Should our white house give them our
tax money to do it?
