I just read with disgust about the United States releasing $250 million to the support of the North African nation's future as a democracy. Future of democracy? Our bully of a president is taxing the American taxpayers all he can, especially the rich to give to the poor. Does he consider Egypt a poor country?
Reading about Woody Wolfe shows his love for sick children. He also helps with bereaved parents and children at Camp Victory in Millville. Woody had a part in the memorial service with songs. We were well blessed by the healing program for our family.
Hope all who voted for Obama are happy. Did you see the pile of money he is giving to Egypt? The U.S. is broke and we continue to hand out money to foreign countries, and we are cutting jobs and programs here at home.
I would like to say that, at the end of this month, if the federal budget is not resolved, there will be hell to pay. This is ridiculous! Whatever happened to taxation without representation? The government is sending money to other countries and we are broke ourselves.
It's Lent; pray
I have been hearing a lot of people complaining lately about each other and other matters. My gosh, it is Lent. If you have nothing to do, sit and pray. I am sure you all have skeletons in your closets. Leave each other alone before something drastic happens.
Taking the cut
Now that the sequester has occurred I am curious to know if congressional salaries also take the 20 percent pay cut. I believe their salaries are $170,00 per year, which is far more than most federal employees that will be taking the 20 percent cut.
To the person who called in and wanted to know how many controlled states there are yet in the U.S., the correct answer is 18. They have said it at the budget hearings for the LCB. There are 18 control states.
Law of the land
The other day a group of us came to a conclusion. Politicians try so hard to get reelected, you know why? They would hate to make a living under the laws they passed. Ain't it the truth?
Let's not forget that sequestration was President Obama's idea. Bob Woodward, an investigative journalist, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney have confirmed this on numerous occasions.
I was just wondering if anyone else watched the wonderful program on the History Channel on Sunday night about the "Bible?" It will be on the next two Sundays. It was excellent. Tune in, folks; you will really enjoy it.
I worked for a company for 26 years until they closed up. After they closed up, I was on unemployment for two years. People would not hire me at my age. They would hire a younger person. Don't be bashing people on welfare and unemployment. Sometimes, there's no choice.
