Egypt and Tunisia Billions More
The slot machine keeps spitting out the tax-dollars, the dollars this casino just does not have. The slot machine is the United States tax payer and the casino is the United States of America. The G8 announced a $20 billion dollar economic aid package for Egypt and Tunisia, to be divided among the G8. As you know the United States will be the one digging into vault and dishing out the bucks for this little venture. Picture this, since 1979, the United States has given Egypt an average of $2 billion in economic and military aid, this totals to a wallet popping $62 BILLION of our tax dollars. What is it going to take for this insanity to stop. Obama continues to promise aid, knowing full well we do not have the funds.   Unbelievable. French President Nicolas Sarkozy said that the plan comprised $20 billion from multilateral banks, $10 billion in bilateral deals, including 1 billion euros from France, and $10 billion from OPEC members Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait. Please someone out there, with better understanding for all of this, please explain to me how in the the "H" are we going to pay for this. I have been trying to figure this out, for my own benefit, because if I do figure it out, I am going to start doing it. That way I can borrow, borrow, borrow and borrow some more, and live like a king.

What is really amazing is the majority of the Muslim Nations  which we give aid to, hate us and do not have our best interest at heart. If you have not read this, do so, it is an eye opening report, the Pew Global Attitudes Project that outlines middle eastern sentiments  The following is a list of the Muslim Nations and how they vote in the United Nations.. 
  • Kuwait votes against the United States 67% of the time
  • Qatar votes against the United States 67% of the time
  • Morocco votes against the United States 70% of the time
  • United Arab Emirates votes against the U. S. 70% of the time.
  • Jordan votes against the United States 71% of the time.
  • Tunisia votes against the United States 71% of the time.
  • Saudi Arabia votes against the United States 73% of the time.
  • Yemen votes against the United States 74% of the time.
  • Algeria votes against the United States 74% of the time.
  • Oman votes against the United States 74% of the time.
  • Sudan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
  • Pakistan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
  • Libya votes against the United States 76% of the time.
  • Egypt votes against the United States 79% of the time.
  • Lebanon votes against the United States 80% of the time.
  • India votes against the United States 81% of the time.
  • Syria votes against the United States 84% of the time.
  • Mauritania votes against the United States 87% of the time. 
U S Foreign Aid to those that hate us:

Egypt, for example, after voting 79% of the time against the United States, still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.

Jordan votes 71% against the United States And receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.
Pakistan votes 75% against the United States Receives $6,721,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.
India votes 81% against the United States Receives $143,699,000 annually.

I understand we need some of these countries and they need aid, but I believe it is time we start trimming back on our aid to the countries that number one, hate us and number two, continue to vote against our interest at the United Nations.  We are losing jobs everyday in this country, good social programs are being cut for the lack of funds. Cut some of this foreign aid packages and apply it back to our nation's national debt, or apply it back to some the social programs which we need.  

Somehow we have to regain control of our purse strings, because this administration is spending us into the ground.

Until Next Time... Shady

Hi Shady,

Thanks for the visit. Okay, I will try to write comments in between watching the grandbabies. I do read most of your posts but cannot write comments with a baby in my arms.

This is a case to show that one cannot "buy" love. It also shows that if anything all one receives is scorn when you give too much to anyone. Plus this also shows what is wrong with the teenagers in this country, due to the guilt of the parents being busy with work and other things, we try to buy stuff to show we love them, and they would rather have us give them love and attention.

Not to say that these Arab countries want our love and attention, well okay they want to wipe us off the face of the planet, but it just shows that if you can't get your kids to love you by giving them everything, then how the hell does our government expect these Arab countries to love us by giving them money. And somehow it also shows how ignorant each administration continues to be, but then they have our government by the balls with them controlling the oil. The only way to end this fake friendship with these countries is to develop our own oil production and then say bye to these countries, and with that stop the flow of love money they then turn around and screw us with.

And I think they could just start paying each US citizen their share of that money and we will do our best to show our government how much we hate them. We would just vote them out every year and then make them give us more money. Heck it cannot be any worse to have us treat them bad then it is to have those countries do it. At least we would only hate our government, while at the same time we would love our fellow citizens, well except for the government workers, unless they are part of your family.

Term limits, anti-lobbying limits, need to be made a law along with a long list I have somewhere, and then maybe things will change, but possibly not. So all we can do is protest, vote, and pray that things will change. But don't hold your breath because you will probably die before any changes take place.

I think I need a large cup of tea right now.

God bless.
