DEMOCRATS and Republicans

DEMOCRATS and Republicans ('different' ONLY in name)
DEMOCRATS and Republicans ('different' ONLY in name)

We read all the jokes and forward the good ones
but I just wonder who will pass this one on.

How about you sending it on, and back to me,
if you have enough nerve to do so.

I do, And I wonder just how many I will get back?

Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with

All the people that run this country!!!!!!

Both Democrats and Republicans
Say, "We're broke"
And can't help our own
Seniors,
Veterans,
Orphans,
Homeless,
Etc.,?????

But, over the last several years THEY
have provided direct cash aid to....

Hamas - $351 M,
Libya $1.45 B,
Egypt - $1.897B,
Mexico - $622 M,
Russia - $380 M,
Haiti - $1.4 B,
Jordan - $463 M,
Kenya - $816 M,
Sudan - $870 M,
Nigeria - $456 M,
Uganda - $451 M,
Congo - $359 M,
Ethiopia - $981 M,
Pakistan - $2 B,
South Africa - $566 M,
Senegal - $698 M,
Mozambique - $404 M,
Zambia - $331 M,
Kazakhstan - $304 M,
Iraq - $1.08 B,
Tanzania - $554 M,

...with literally Billions of Dollars and they still hate us!!!!

But on the other hand,
Our retired seniors,
Living on a 'fixed income,'
Receive NO aid!
Nor do they get any breaks, while our government
And religious organizations will pour
Hundreds of Billions Of $$$$$$'s
and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!

Someone needs to explain to them that
Charity begins AT HOME!!!

And another atrocity....

We have Hundreds of adoptable
American Children who are shoved aside
To make room for
The adoption of
Foreign orphans.
AMERICA: A country where we have
Countless Homeless without shelter,
Children going to bed hungry,
Elderly going without needed medication
and the Mentally ill without treatment -- etc.

YET..........
They will have a 'Benefit' Show
For the people of Haiti, on 12 TV Stations;
Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents
clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Now Just Imagine if
Our own *GOVERNMENT*
Gave 'US' the same support they give to foreign countries.
Sad, isn't it?

99% of people won't have the nerve to forward this.

WELL, I'm one of the 1% who Just Did.
