Re: Re :Most "foreign aid" is ...

Even the large chunk of the total that goes to Israel.

Good friend is the export sales manager for a company that makes industrial pumps. He was telling me how he'd signed a huge deal to Israel for pumps for the tanker trucks they use to water down the dirt paths next to The Wall so that vision isn't obscured when it is dry and the wind whips up- which is most of the time.

I asked him if there was a origin preference involved in that and he looked up surpised, and nodded. And changed the subject.

If we are going to explode the deficit it is better to give to working Americans over foreign nation interest. Why should we concern ourselves with gender studies in the sudan.

Quick jump from Bruce Jenner to why it is OK to hold up aid to the unemployed, hungry, those about to be evicted etc.

BTW, for the umpteenth time- that's in the omnibus bill and if you want to shut down the govt over it be my guest.

Welcome Sens Ossoff and Warnock.

And it will just add fuel to how hard they're going to come after Pres. Whiny Baby and his henchmen after the inauguration.
