Why is America broke?
It is because politicians like Barack Obama want to continue to give American money away like candy at Christmas.
The latest insult? A mere $192 million to Palestine.
From The Times of Israel:
President Barack Obama has lifted a ban on financial aid to the Palestinian Authority.
Obama stated that the aid was “important to the security interests of the United States.”
The US Congress froze a $192 million aid package to the Palestinian Authority after its president, Mahmoud Abbas, defied US pressure and sought to attain UN endorsement of Palestinian statehood last September. The presidential waiver means that aid can now be delivered.
The unilateral statehood gambit was strongly opposed by Israel, which said Abbas was seeking to avoid negotiating the necessary compromises and modalities of statehood with Israel. The US indicated it would veto a resolution in the Security Council seeking unilateral recognition of “Palestine,” but the issue has not come to a vote, because the Palestinians were unable to obtain sufficient support in the Security Council. They may yet seek a non-binding endorsement of statehood in the UN General Assembly.
Section 3 of Congress’s Palestinian Accountability Act, which applies to 2012, stipulates that “no funds available to any United States Government department or agency … may be obligated or expended with respect to providing funds to the Palestinian Authority.” Obama has now signed a waiver, however, the White House said Friday, and asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to inform Congress accordingly.
Is anyone else’s head exploding?
First, who remembers the Palestinians dancing in the streets on 9/11? I do.
They should never see another time of American money.
Washington always wants to throw our money away for foreign aid for “diplomacy.”
Would someone please tell me what the hell we have ever gotten for that? All we do is throw away more and more money on places like the fictional nation and people they call “Palestine” and what do we have to show for it?
Not a thing.
Sunday marks the third anniversary of the last time the United States Senate passed a budget.
Just in case anyone missed it, Harry Reid, the official eunuch of the Senate has absolutely no clue as to what he is doing. Every business in America makes a budget. Almost every family in America makes a budget.
Why the hell is it so hard for those brain donors we call the Senate Democrats to come up with one?
It is probably because they know America would hate their budget and rebel against it. They know that if they released the budget they want, we would throw them out of office and probably into prison.
So with no budget, we keep wasting our money. Our economy is sinking faster than the Titanic and the Senate not only remains without a budget but Barack Obama thinks we have nothing better to do with our money than to send it to a non-country that hates us.
I think our official policy should be to send Barack Obama to the unemployment lines as quickly as possible.
Why the hell isn't he impeached!!!!!!!!!!!!
Patricia, my exact sentiments. Why the hell hasn't this "it" been impeached a long time ago. What this non-entity is doing is outrageous.
Patricia, I would like to know the answer to that question as well.
Impeachment is done by the House. It acts like a grand jury. If the charges are such that they can get a majority of votes in the House to impeach, then it goes to the Senate for trial. You and I know that that would never happen, with the DemocRATS controlling the Senate. So no use trying to impeach him. Let's just wait until the elections to get him out. Another thing that concerns me is the violence that would erupt if he were to be found guilty and removed from office. Rest assured that no white person would be safe on th streets. And, then the other side of the coin is this: Would we be better off with Biden as president than we are now?
"Would we be better off with Biden as president than we are now?"
Probably...but not by much.
Obama and Reid are tied at the hip. And they both have to go. On the internet is a website, IMPEACH HARRY REID. It needs our support to remove this #$%^ from our government.
Harry Reid is a frigging moron - he's only still in the Senate because of the rigged election a year and a half ago - He is a piece of pond scum - an utter disaster of a human being
It is difficult to get Harry out because of he strength of the unions in Nevada. He got a pretty good scare last election, but still made it through because of a weak Republican candidate. He can be investigated for how he became a millionaire. When he first got elected, his wealth did not amount to much, but somehow, he is now a multimaillionaire.....on a Senator's pay?
I think we should keep our money and send Obama instead.
Obama says the financial aid to the PA is 'essential to the security interests of the United States'. NOPE -- he is trying to pressure Israel to stop building in the West Bank. October 2011, UNESCO voted for admitting Palestine as a full member. So the US Congress cut funds to UNESCO. (They later released ~$45MM of the $192MM). So this is a backsliding move to let Israel know his true allegiance. Obama sides with the islamists whenever he can, even when he has to wait it out a while. Still loving that Arab Spring! November -- come quick!!!
Let us all give what we can to Israel, just to show Obama he is really not all that much. He's much too Muslim for America.Has he ever told us what denomination of Christian he claims to be. Christian is to broad to answer that Question.
