Horrible illiteracy in some

Horrible illiteracy in some cities here at home in the US, yet we give Israel money as if it would never run out. They ask we give. Like we're their sugar daddy or something... except we get no "sugar." Most politicians could care less about things like this. Forget Detroit... they like people in Israel much better, to the tune of 50k or so per year for every single man, woman and child in that country. Try giving that much to people in the US... or even just reducing their tax burdens by the relative amount... and life in the US improves significantly.


This Is What Ron Paul Meant By Congress Is Out Of Step

with the rest of America...

Israel is the holy of holies for the necons in the congress.

The american educational be damned!

Oh yea, we'll save Isreal as we grow dumber and dumber everyday..Johnny can't read, can't tell you who the Vice-President of the United States is but knows all about Lady Gaga.

When are we going to get our priorites right?
