Good thing there arent millions of hungry people without jobs in our country.

That is a quarter of a Billion Dollars,$250,000,000 that we could put into a big stick which is all the World Powers seem to understnd.
If we have to give it away lets put it into planes and tanks in the Sinaithrough the Israeli port of Aqaeba and let themm release the weapons Egypt when we tell them too.

Our country is going bankrupt and has to cut programs. But, somehow we have enough to help Egypt. I'm so glad I didn't vote for Obama.

Could it possibly be that a little invested in keeping Egypt on the democratic side now would pay off in the future? I'll even volunteer to pay J-TX's $2 share if it's so painful to him, but I couldn't go for Swiss's "Let's make sure they're all armed" solution. BTW, all through administrations of both parties, Egypt has long been the #2 receiver of US foreign aid. You should know who's #1.

Is it possible that Kerry could just through the agenda for bankrupting the United States out the window and seek financial aid from his Arab friends to bail out the US economy?

Or, what about exacting tribute from the Middle East countries who have benefited from our military aid?

I don't think anything should be "throughn", but, remember, the Saudi's are Bush's pals, not Kerry's.

Doesn't Kerry realize we don't have any money to give away? Perhaps he should be invited to the treasure department to take a look.

Furthermore, if Egypt needs money why don't they borrow it like we have to do? Maybe they could go to Saudi Arabia who's loaded with money... our money from buying their oil at obscene prices.

@Mark B:

They (Egypt), of course, will try to look democratic to keep the money flowing in their direction. But, once our money runs out (and it has, years ago but Kerry doesn't seem to realize it) Egypt will turn their backs on us. Remember, the country is Muslim (except for a few Christian Copts) and is now run by the Muslim Brotherhood. Remember, Muslims hate the west and have declared war on us via their military force (Al Qaeda).

Make that 'throw' the seemingly inexplicable agenda for bankrupting the United States out the window.

Bush, Kerry, Hillary, Obama and anyone you can name from memory who have been Secretary of State or Commander in Chief are all pals working for the Wall Street bankers who float all the bonds that underwrite government spending programs and take their percentage on every dollar of big government debt.

So, I'm broke and can't afford food for my family, yet I buy my neighbor some? It's this kind of thinking that puts us in the situation we now find ourselves.

Why is it so hard for Americans to realize that our country needs a leader who has business experience? Community organizers and their ilk, just keep people happy by feeding their addictions to handouts. We are so far away from what our founding fathers intended, they wouldn't even recognize this country.
