If Egypt needs money, they can start selling historic artifacts. Islam has not need for such things.

The tax slaves will just have to get second jobs. The Village will raise their kids.
Washington wants to spend again, and the tax slaves WILL be forced to work harder.
Get out your check books. Both political parties are ready and willing to spend. There is no debate. There is no escape.

The definition of insanity! They are killing Christians----KILLING! FELLOW EGYPTIANS!----for their RELIGIOUS beliefs.

The Muslim Brotherhood looks likely to take over the country, so our US hating, Muslim loving Imam Obam borrows a billion to send them. The very definition of Insanity!

of course we do!...Whats to stop us from printing it?

the difference between the big picture and the little picture is....as individuals, we can spend all our money....max out our credit cards and enjoy the fruit while it lasts...but eventually we end up in Bankruptcy (a legal concept)
as a country...we can print more money to pay our bills...resulting in a valueless currency (a political concept)

Greenspan explained it well in 1966....It's the shabby little secret... http://www.321gold.com/fed/greenspan/1966.html

Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth.

The Hunger to Come in Egypt

Egypt is running out of food, and, more gradually, running out of money with which to buy it. The most populous country in the Arab world shows all the symptoms of national bankruptcy - the kind that produced hyperinflation in several Latin American countries during the 1970s and 1980s - with a deadly difference: Egypt imports half its wheat, and the collapse of its external credit means starvation.

The civil violence we have seen over the past few days foreshadows far worse to come.

I’m on a “if I can’t pay cash, I can’t afford it”. I got one of those prepaid cc’s, so I can shop online and also contribute my funds to FR.

I’ve saved enough money to get my tranny rebuilt for my Ford Explorer, have one savings account (hours at work have been cut so it’s not as big as I’d like)....then I have a separate savings for FR.

I’ve just started a new savings for Sarahs announcement. Just waiting, impatiently (yes, one of my biggest flaws, no patience) for the word FIRE!!

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam Contrasted With 10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam

#1 “Islam has always been part of America”

#2 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

#3 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

#4 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

#5 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

#6 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

#7 “As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith.”

#8 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

#9 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

#10 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

10 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages - the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity - are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

#7 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

#8 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will—they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

#9 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

#10 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

To: concerned about politics
Several months ago i was at a doctors office and on the television they were showing the protests in Egypt. I out loud asked, i wonder if they got their 6 billion yet this year. This dumb broad replies from across the room and says, "Oh but they are going to have democracy who cares about that money". I only wish she would read about the first of many food shortages.

On another matter there should be no more monetary foreign aid in any manner. If we must send them something i say we send them bricks, mortar, boards, prefab houses and buildings to be assembled by them on a site but no more money in any manner. Send them the raw materials to build and grow food with but never again any money. I have to chuckle every time as i think about that guy in India, at Bhopal or whatever it was called. He says on television, Cash, just send cash, no food no blankets just send cash". I had hopes Johnny Cash would take him up on his offer and go.
