OK, shut down the national parks at double the cost of keeping them open.

Fine because unless they raised the debt ceiling thus raising the debt to over $+17 trillion dollars, the united states would defalt and declare bankruptcy.

The USA is broke but somehow found enough borrowed money to give as welfare to Israel to the tune of an extra half a billion dollars.

Doubts remain over whether the Israeli Iron Dome missile defense system actually works, and Israel’s military had repeatedly dubbed it cost-ineffective enough that they wouldn’t pay for it in their budget.

The House Armed Services Committee is more than willing to keep bankrolling the system, however, and announced funding to the tune of another $488 million this year in funding.

The approval still has to go through the House Appropriations Committee and the Senate before it is finalized, but this seems merely academic, as such votes are always overwhelmingly supportive of additional aid.

The $488 million is an addition to over $3 billion in military aid the US is already planning to send to Israel in the coming fiscal year. Despite the budget crunch, officials say they will maintain the Israel subsidies.

TOM lives in his past. He used to "manage" a Muslim soup kitchen called "Omars". Top of the line menu according to TOM as quoted in the local news. Then the health officials found two day old road kill in the soup. He didn't even bother to take out the hair. LOLOL!
