Penniless Americans Hand Over Their Money


Americans, Do you have a pot to piss in? Or if you are lucky enough to have your own pot, do you find you cannot afford a window to throw it out of?

Are you an American out of work? Are you a struggling American who lost your home? Are you living from paycheck to paycheck, are you wondering how you will survive until your next paycheck? Are you wondering how you will send your kids to college? Pay the doctor bill if someone gets sick? What about that new car you need? What about a vacation? What about your retirement?

Well, no need to worry, Obama to the rescue, no not really. But, you could start by telling him you want to keep your money in your pocket, instead of paying $23,240 dollars for every Israeli in Israel (1997 figures, so much worse now) And allowing Obama to give yet another 3 BILLION per year, over the next TEN YEARS, for a total of 30 BILLION of your taxpayer money to Israel. Just so you know, this is the number they get for the next ten years 30,000000000 now wouldn't Americans be better served by keeping that money for America? What would 30,000000000 buy Americans? Perhaps funding Universal Health Care for Americans, instead of giving it to Israel? And that's not all folks, have a look at these numbers of 7 million a day to Israel now read this out today:
TEL AVIV, Israel, July 8 (UPI) -- Despite differences between the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama and Israel over Iran and the Middle East peace process, and human-rights groups' allegations of war crimes against the Palestinians, Washington continues to provide the Jewish state with billions of dollars' worth of arms and equipment every year.

And there's no sign that this will change any time soon.

Indeed, Obama has endorsed a military aid package worth up to $30 billion, without conditions, over the next 10 years that was set up by the administration of President George W. Bush in 2007.

That represents a 25 percent increase in the vast U.S. military and security assistance given to Israel during the Bush administration.

With annual military aid of some $2 billion, Israel is the largest recipient of U.S. largesse in the world. source
Feeling a bit sick now are you? Check out these numbers, which only go up to 1997, SO REMEMBER TO ADD ANOTHER 12 YEARS ONTO THESE NUMBERS and take a deep breath:
