The gov. is giving away money right and left.

Sequester Eve: Kerry Pledges $60 Million for Syrian Rebels - See more at: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/02/28/sequester...

What are a few tens of millions here...

...or a few hundreds of billions there when there are globalists anxiously awaiting the breaking of this country so their visions of one worldism can be fulfilled?

Don't the silly peasants know what's good for them?

Natural Born Citizen

This is why the Founders mandated the President be natural born. They knew it was natural for a son to have some allegiance to the homeland of the father even if he son had never been there. Obama is just proof of this.

This doesnt shock me

They are going to kill the Dollar trying to build their empire.

Why does this bother you? It bothers you because you use dollars as a currency.

Stop using Dollars, Use Bitcoin. Think you'll ever hear the federal Govt sent "2.3 billion bitcoins to Syria"?

No you wont because the elitest dont have control over Bitcoins. So take power out of their hands and use Bitcoins to transact. Or silver and Gold but Bitcoins is just so much better as a currency.

Well, you know their elites

Well, you know their elites need funds to buy private jumbo jets with hot tubs too you know.

I wonder if they got a "propaganda internet"

Complete with government kill switch and censoring.

If Hillary is so concerned about internet access for Africa...

...there is nothing stopping her from donating to such a cause or raising money for it herself.

How big of the Obama administration to volunteer taxpayer money for it.

More precisely, $307B to African dictators

It would be a different thing entirely if ordinary people from the continent of Africa got $307 apiece, but of course it doesn't work like that. $307B to African governments, typically dictators (Hosni Mubarak is probably included in that figure), who take their cut, and then use a lot of the remainder to buy F-16's as per their agreement.

I wonder what fraction of this money will actually go toward internet infrastructure. You know that half of the dictators involved here will proceed to make their cousin the new minister of internet development, and his company will be tasked with the herculean task of installing the new infrastructure all by themselves.

I used to be a liberal. Then I learned about incentives. Suddenly the gap between promises and results for government projects made so much more sense.

It's not different to me. The

It's not different to me. The IRS steals my hard earned money from me and my family to give it away... nope.

I'm not advocating theft.

I'm saying an equal redistribution is one thing (which I disagree with) whereas dictator support is another and is orders of magnitude worse.

The point of my post was that when Hillary Clinton says money is going to Africa, the MSM-watching ignoramuses here somehow get it in their heads that all the poor people in Africa are going to see most of this money. They aren't. I.e., even if playing Robin Hood was morally right (which it isn't) that is not what's happening here. Just the reverse in fact.

“Alliance For An Affordable Internet”

Absurd. Should I send my internet bill to Hillary?

A group of pandas is called an embarrassment. Sometimes Chris Cudnoski is called an embarrassment. Coincidence?....hmmm....

Its hard

To get your mind around it.
