Subject One of the 1%.......

The insane part of the following is that we are borrowing the funds to give away.
We read all the jokes and forward the good ones but I just wonder who will pass this one on.
How about you sending it on and back to me if you got the guts to do so.
I am and just wonder how many I will get back?
AND very happy to be of the 1%.
Someone please tell me what's  wrong with
all the people that run this country!!!!!!

Democrats and Republicans
We're "broke"
And can't help
Our own

In the last years we have provided direct cash aid to
Hamas - 351 M,
Libya 1.45 B,
Egypt - 397 M,
Mexico - 622 M,
Russia - 380 M,
Haiti - 1.4 B,
Jordan - 463 M,
Kenya - 816 M,
Sudan - 870 M,
Nigeria - 456 M,
Uganda - 451 M,
Congo - 359 M,
Ethiopia - 981 M,
Pakistan - 2 B,
South Africa - 566 M,
Senegal - 698 M,
Mozambique - 404 M,
Zambia - 331 M,
Kazakhstan - 304 M,
Iraq - 1.08 B,
Tanzania - 554 M,
With literally Billions of Dollars and they still hate us!!!!

Our retired seniors
Living on a 'fixed income'
Receive no aid
nor do they get any breaks while our government
and religious organizations pour
Hundreds of Billions
Of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food
To Foreign Countries!

We have
Hundreds of adoptable
Children who are shoved aside
To make room for
The adoption of
Foreign orphans.
AMERICA: a country where we have
Homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication and mentally ill without treatment -etc.

They have
A 'Benefit'
For the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations,
Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.

Imagine if
Gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.

Sad isn't it?

99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.

I'm one of the 1% --
I Just Did =

Whoever wrote this e-mail sounds like a commie freeloader to me. Asking the government to provide basic services to its citizens? We only hand out bootstraps here, comrade!

Also, our total foreign aid per year to the entire world is less than $50 billion, or 1% of the federal budget.

We would only spend "Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s" if you count the wars abroad, which is at least $117 billion as of the 2012 budget proposal (on top of the $700 billion annual DoD funding).

Ho hum.

We've dissected variations on this theme, and anon hits a ringing double off the wall.

We can easily fund SS, Medicare, Medicaid, infrastructure, feed the homeless, modern public education, the Post Office, etc, etc. IF the rich pay their share. But they don't give a shit about this country and buy off judges and politicians to further their interests at the expense of the middle and lower classes.

And, as usual, many conservatives let Rush and Fox and tripe like this do their thinking for them. Lazy and uninformed...a think tank's dream voter.

Sounds like Commie-nism to me, comrade! Geez, ya now thinks that US citizens, insteada bein' lazy bastards too shiftless to get offa their lazy azzholes and get jawb 'n stuff... now ya wants Uncle Sam to rush to YOUR rescue (cuz usually these tirading rants is jest about MEEEEEEE)??

This is typically poorly written with some pretty fact-free assertions, but the underlying issue is real. That said, "foreign aid" - of the type I think this screed is ranting about - is but a very tiny portion of the overall US budget.

As for Haitians livin' large on all of that there US gubmint largesse: yeah, pull the other one, ya racist douchebags. I can hear that racist dog whistle from 10 miles away. Go talk to Sean Penn about just how *great* things are for the Haitians even now... Penn's actually put his own shoulder to the wheel to get shit done for Haiti, which is pretty much still in miserable shape.

The US gubmnit isn't funding foreign adoptions for the Lowered's sake! I thought these rightwingtards were all about personal liberty to choose whatever they want. Foreign adoptions happen through the personal choice of the parents and usually at great personal expense. I am not aware of the USA funding such adoptions. And anyway, if these losers are so "worried" about US kids not being adopted, why then: go for it! Sad to say, most US kids available for adoption tend to be minorities, so... uh, well...

And so on.

Agree with gruaud: very lazy thinking. Reading a bunch of run together sentences and phrases but basically signifying not much.

A big giant sucking *distraction* from where our money does get spent, however, which is the DoD and WAR, Inc. But I guess conservatives are all A-OK with the Military Industrial Complex getting the lion's share of the US budget.

And hey: if you're so damn worried about cuts to Soc Sec & Medicare, then why'd you vote for Mitt RMoney, then? Well, frankly, Obama's gonna do the same thing, but seriously??

Wake up. Grow up. Do some thinking for yourself. And try using teh Googler once in a while.

Yeah: dream on.

I thought the right wing believed in private charity as a better option than taxation? This 1%-er (I seriously doubt that's the case) needs to get off his lazy butt and stop asking the government to do the charity that he needs to be doing at home.
