The federal government actually loads $Billions of Dollars onto pallets and ships them to Iraq - no problem.

The federal government spends money in America, to help Americans, and an American city - and it's a problem ?

Does that logic make any sense to even our Right Wing friends ?

NY Fed's $40 Billion Iraqi Money Trail
CNBC.com 10/25/11 2:25 PM ET
By: Eamon Javers

It has been called the largest airborne transfer of currency in the history of the world. But finding out what happened to all the money involved has become one of the biggest financial mysteries of all time.

Source: CNBC Sources

Beginning in the very earliest days of the war in Iraq, the New York Federal Reserve shipped billions of dollars in physical cash to Baghdad to pay for the reopening of the government and restoration of basic services.

The money was packed onto pallets inside a heavily guarded New York Federal Reserve compound in East Rutherford, New Jersey, trucked to Andrews Air Force Base outside of Washington, and flown by military aircraft to Baghdad International Airport.

By one account, the New York Fed shipped about $40 billion in cash between 2003 and 2008.

In just the first two years, the shipments included more than 281 million individual bills weighing a total of 363 tons.

But soon after the money arrived in the chaos of war-torn Baghdad, the paper trail documenting who controlled it all began to go cold.

Since then, investigators have spent years trying to trace what happened to the enormous amount of money shipped in the frantic days of the occupation of Iraq.

Although there have been hundreds of pages of reports, Congressional hearings, and inquiries from Washington to Baghdad, no one in Congress, a special inspector general’s office, the Department of Defense or the Iraqi government itself can say with certainty what exactly happened to all of that money.
Bush actually airlifts $40,000,000,000.00 in cash to hand out to Iraqi war lords and drug lords, the Taliban, and Al Queda - no problem.

Not a squeak from our Right Wing friends.

Not a peep of objection.

Not a word of concern.

Complete support.

Obama wants to spend a few million to help our fellow Americans, in America, and - "Oh my God - is he mad ?"

Another reason it's so difficult to believe Right Wingers actually care about what they claim to are about.

Locked in a time warp is your name.
Read above post by OMTE for up to date money being given away.


Most all Americans know our government has been giving away money for the last 70 odd years to other governments and countries,(name any country and most likely we gave them money) while at the same time requiring American taxpayers to pay their own way, whether Local, State, or individuals.

The solution would be to let Local and State government print their own money like the Feds do.

After all, every libroid knows money grows on tree all over the country. Even the illegals know this.

It's early in the day, sit back, take a deep breath and tell yourself, I will calm down, I will calm down.

BTW, send money to Obama, he needs it for Obamacare. Holder needs it to pay for storage of Zimmerman's gun and Kerry needs it to eat caviar while in Europe.

Nice try.

Don't Right Wing Wackos hate those damn pesky facts that reveal hoy hypocritical and ludicriyusly inconsistent there alleged "outrage" is ?

Let's see...
"Why's" favorite Right Wing Wacko politicians literally physically drop $40,000,000,000.00 in American taxpayer cash from airplanes onto the heads of Muslim Arabs war lords, drug lords, and politicians.

"Why" doesn't object, criticize, and, in fact, supports the entire debacle,
but
a when a slightly less Right Winger spend a few bucks to help "Why's" fellow Americans, and an American city, suddenly "Why" screams bloody murder.

When confronted with the obvious transparent lunacy of this hypocritical position,

"Why" returns to that Right Wing Wacko childish defense:

"So what if I approved the government under a Right Wing Wacko literally dropping $40,000,000,000.00 from airplanes into the waiting grasp of Arab Muslim warlords and drug lords, and now claim to be outraged we want to help an American city ?

I'm a Right Wing Wacko from Right Wing Wacko Planet,
and since there is no "history" on Right Wing Wacko Planet, you can't use the past (it doesn't exist), to demonstrate how idiotically inconsistent and irrational my current position is.

"So there!, You rational person with knowledge of history. I showed you to try to make me be consistent and rational. Nanny nanny boo boo."

You gotta love those crazy Right Wing Wackos - searching so desperately to find reasons to criticize the American government that they miss the important issues, and focus on matters that just make the Wackos look silly.

I have also been keeping an eye on him. I do think that he showboats sometimes but that is o.k. with me. He is extremely intelligent and seems to have very good common sense. He seems almost to good to be true. Knowing what I know of him right now I would consider voting for him.

Why object when your fallacies are mixed up in a confusion of babble?

It's like saying the sun don't rise and there is no moon.

Or like you saying you never took a free coffee or donut while you were a cop; or a bribe, or an envelope with cash in it.

BTW; consistent and rational is an oxymoron with regards to any post you make.

Social Security is also a disproportionate tax in favor of wealthier citizens.
I don't understand your statement. The more money a persons salary is, the more money they and their employer send to the S.S. fund. Social Security then sends a larger retirement check at retirement age because more has been paid into that persons retirement account. Perhaps you are talking about the cut off point of how much a person has to pay into it each year. You may think they should continue to pay into it no matter how much money they make or how much they pay into it each year. Still there is a (top tier) maximum amount of money that is allowed to be sent to a retiree each month. Pay more in, get more out. Maybe I just don't know what you are getting at.

I see you got my point. Every one of these cities are liberal welfare cities with strong public service unions.
It will be impossible to bail them out without bankrupting this country.
Why bail them out anyway, as they will just continue on with their current financial practices and need bailing out again in another year.

More gloom and doom with the AHCA. New surveys show that doctors will be retiring early do to ObamaCare and cuts in Medicare and Medicade.
We may have ObamaCare but no doctor to go to.
