Billions of dollars go to foreign aid, from the American Taxpayers, to foreign governments overtly, unknown how much covertly in black ops style cash payoffs, and teachers don’t have money for classroom materials in the USA.
Our money is being used to buy new foreign military hardware, ridiculous projects and other Payoff Payback Scams.
What is a payoff, payback scam? Senator XYZ gets a foreign country a 5 billion dollars that calendar year in overt and covert funding from the American government, and then, under the table, they get 2-5% of it back in overt and covert cash.
Example.. from Free Republic.com
“The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), spent $823,200 of economic stimulus funds in 2009 on a study by a UCLA research team to teach uncircumcised African men how to wash their genitals after having sex.”
How many American families had 100% of their taxes taken for this? How much of it made it back via Swiss and offshore bank accounts into the hands of American politicans?
WWMSD…What Would Main Street Do?
Shut off the flow of cash from our future generations to other countries.
Maybe the federal government should just send out some post cards to the overseas fat cats getting foreign aid, with a little reminder, kind of like the ones when you have your teeth cleaned.
Dear Fatcat Overseas Politican:
“Your Foreign Aid From the USA Last Year was 12 Billion Dollars.
This year, it will be 0 (zero) dollars.
The American Taxpayers
