Obama Order: It's important to the national interest to furnish $10 million to Mali

Presidential Memorandum (July 12, 2012) -- Unexpected Urgent Refugee and Migration Needs With Respect to Mali.

I see this as nothing more than bribery or theif or both! Enough with all these damn signing statements and EO's!

The absurdity in this case is even deeper than you think.

Ron Paul really summed it up well in the debates when he pointed out that the essence of foreign aid is taking money from poor and middle class Americans and giving it to rich warlords/emirs/dictators in other countries. The average citizen in Mali won't see one red cent from the aid. But everyone here knows this already.

What is especially rich about Obama asking to spend our money this time is that the rebellion going on there is a direct result of our NATO/UN intervention in Libya, which he was so supportive of. Don't just take my word for it though:

If they throw our money away on aid to Mali, it should at least have the string attached that if this $10M starts another crisis, we're not going to be on the hook for that one too.

It's important to the national interest...to get ourselves out of debt and out of the criminal money monopoly Fed.

I am sick of my money being taken from me and given to someone else to pay for my own demise.

Also $30 Million for Struggling Schools.. In Jordan

"The Obama administration’s solution to public school budget cuts and classroom overcrowding? Infuse millions of extra federal dollars into constructing modern facilities and renovating old ones, while deploying additional computer equipment – and new furniture – in schools nationwide

Nationwide, that is, in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

A generous multinational political donor – one that straddles the partisan fence, showering both parties with millions – secured the contract for the latest phase of the project.

MWH Americas, Inc., on Sunday, July 8 received the $30 million award, Number AID-278-C-12-00002, from the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is overseeing multiple endeavors benefiting the Government of Jordan, particularly the Jordanian Ministry of Education, or MOE."
