Obama Announces Extra $300 Million in Aid for Syrians, Refugees

[No kidding...while Americans lose benefits and security daily.]

We don't loose, we get it too. There are money trees everywhere here. This insanity will not stop or even slow down until this matter and anti matter meet in a cosmic showdown on wall st. The true value of the economic ponzi will emerge from the fog and the smart guys will be jumping from the 50th floor.
