The U.S. will give an estimated $26 billion in foreign aid in 2008-70% more than when President George W. Bush took office(the figure doesn't include funds related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan). More than 150 countries get financial assistance from the U. S. Here are the 6 that received the most this year.
Israel gets $2.4 billion. Virtually all of this money is used to buy weapons(up to75% made in the U.S.) Beginning in 2009, the U.S. plans to give $30 billion over 10 years.
Egypt gets $1.7 billion. $1.3 billion to buy weapons:$103 million for education:$74 million for health care(what the fuck?...we're giving the fucking Egyptians $74 million for health care and we don't have jack shit?....fuckme I'll never smile again); $45 million to promote civic participation and human rights.(mean time part of our population don't have the same rights as the other part of the country...not counting what we're doing to the Indians)
Pakistan gets $798 million. 330 million for security efforts, including military-equipment upgrades and border security;(mean while everyone in Mexico trapes across our borders, willy nilly.)$20 million for infrastructure.
Jordan gets $688 million. 4326 million to fight terrorism and promote regional stability through equipment upgrades and training:$163 million cash payment to the Jordanian government.(basically a payoff to keep them from allowing terrorists to set up training camps.....yeah, how's that working for us?)
Kenya gets $586 million. $501 to fight HIV/AIDs through drug treatment and abstinence education and to combat malaria:(yeah, just say no when that gorilla fighter and his army of 6,000 run through town raping and pillaging.); $15 million fr agricultural development;(will that buy rain?) $5.4 million for programs that promote government accountability.(This made me laugh so hard I sit cough syrup on the monitor.)
South Africa gets $574 million. $557 million to fight TB and HIV/AIDS;(more of that just say no shit.) and $3million for education.
We don't have a pot to piss in nor a window to throw it out of and we're loaning money to country's that hate us and wouldn't piss on us if we were on fire...fuckity fuck fuck fuck!
I say cut 'em off, all of them...what's in it for us?...Nada, zip, zilch, zero, nil, not a fucking thing..Good thing I don't drink any more...This is enough to make me belly up to the bar, shout "Set me up with some whiskey and a Lone Star and keep 'em coming."...
Speaking of whiskey...I missed work today...Went to the Dr. and had x rays taken. I googled all sorts of shit on webmd.com and got information to ask for when I saw Dr. E. Babs drove me as I haven't had but 3 1/2 hours sleep in 2 nights.coughing my ass off..to the tune of a loss of 4 more lbs.
I got a intranasal cortisone that I take 2 snorts of in each nostril once a day. Plus I got another steroid shot.Ouch ouch ouch.
Plus a 16 oz. bottle of CODAL-DM syrup. Take 2 teaspoons every 4-6 hours as needed for cough..Will get the x-ray results tomorrow...Hope to find out something. But the discouraging part is..while googling I found that a chronic cough can last longer than 2 years..No fucking way. I'll step in front of the garbage truck tomorrow morning before I keep coughing every night for 5 hours for the next 2 years..I do know I'm growing quite fond of the cough syrup. Good thing I'm not worried about taking this and getting hooked..I haven't the strength to go to rehab for this shit..
It's 20 till 8P.M. and I have to at least stay awake till news..then I'll take another teaspoon(took one earlier) and go read and sleep...hopefully like a coma victim...Let you know what the x rays say.night night y'all.
