Barack Obama has introduced a bill to the Senate, called the “Global Poverty Act,” which would send $843 billion dollars of aid to foreign countries. That is the equivalent of adding $2,500 to each and every taxpayer’s burden in the country, and sending all of it overseas.
It has already been approved in one form and is still under debate.

Update: E-mail to my senators

I have just been informed of Senator Obama’s “Global Poverty Act,” S. 2433. The Congress of the United States already takes far too much money from the citizens to send overseas as aid. Not only does this not promote the interests of the United States or the individual citizens taxed, but most countries receiving it have asked for it to stop. They need investment, not hand-outs.

It is unacceptable for the United States Congress to levy the equivalent of an additional $2,500 in annual tax for every taxpayer in the nation for program that neither Americans nor the intended recipients want.

Some countries receiving U. S. aid are already asking us to stop. Aid does NOT help people; underdeveloped countries need investment.

I spent the first years of my life in a trailer park outside of a tiny town in rural Missouri. I grew up to be a long-haired, gun-hating, military-hating, Presbyterian super-liberal. Well, perhaps the “growing up” happened later. While in high school, I was on the cross-country and wrestling teams, and actually won my weight-class in a State powerlifting competition. I went on to attend college on a Bright Flight scholarship, where I promptly became an atheist. I trained for a few years in Shotokan karate and Cheng-system taijiquan before training in my first real martial art, Hwarang-Do, under the late Franklin Fowlkes (later the Founder and Grandmaster of the Five Elements Martial Arts System). I married an older Taiwanese woman my junior year, got divorced in short order, and dropped out of college. After completing my AA in Psychology, I decided I needed a complete change of scenery and joined the U.S. Marine Corps (having early been assured that there was no way that a skinny liberal like me would ever survive Boot Camp). Contrary to what the Hipster Zombies will tell you, this did not “brainwash me into being a Conservative”. Instead, it made me a very unhappy, short-haired liberal, surrounded by guns and the military. However, I spent my whole contract (after schools) on the island of Okinawa, where I was exposed to points of view not dominated by the American liberal media. During this time, I taught ESL classes as a side-job, trained under some of the highest-ranking masters of karate on Okinawa, and discovered the practice of Buddhism. I also spent some time in Korea, where I got to train in hapkido. It was during this period that I came gradually to realize how stupid and evil American liberalism actually is. This was partly due to my Military Police command sending me to Small Arms Instructor school, which gave me more exposure to guns than I could ever have imagined—thus negating my idiotic liberal distaste for them. After the active-duty portion of my Marine Corps contract was over, I worked several jobs, from security contracts to operating a forklift in a warehouse. In 2002, however, when the invasion of Iraq was getting under way, I signed up with the Missouri Army National Guard, and have remained with them since, continuing as a Military Policeman. I am also full-time corrections officer, a member of the Anglican Church, and at one time was an Instructor Candidate in Dekiti-Tirsia Serradas Kali (until my instructor moved away). My hobbies (beyond blogging) include strength training, shooting sports, martial arts, creating digital art, and being a huge science and science-fiction geek.

  1. Honestly, no politician, not even Bill or Hillary has ever made me feel as sick as Obama. I don’t want to read about him, or even think about him. He was on The View the other day… and I went ahead and watched…yuck! The ladies (except for Elisabeth and Whoopi) were oggling all over him! I just feel disgusted. He doesn’t even strike me as being smart! Not at all!!! I don’t know what I will do if he becomes President…. Well, I will def cry… I know I will.
