how can we afford to send $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine when veterans are still waiting for benefits?
Jesse Ventura, host of “Off the Grid” on Ora.tv, makes a good case for American outrage. While Iraq & Afghanistan vets still wait for benefits, Congress writes checks for foreign aid around the world.
Jesse pours it on in this video filled with great points, and especially that: how can we afford to send $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine when veterans are still waiting for benefits? At one point he says that since veterans can't get their benefits from the last two war follies, that the next time they are ordered to go to war, they should just conveniently say they don't remember where they put their weapons.
And it's the damn truth. We have an absolutely outrageous national debt, and they STILL continue to spend us into oblivion. $1 Billion of our tax money into Ukraine? That's BS. I mean where are the brakes? Who is going to stop these people? Will it take Russia and China to finally just nuke us and get it over with? Apparently so. Cause there seems to be no end in sight to the utter lunacy.
Jesse makes the point also that a kid born today is already $50K in the hole before they ever get out of the womb. Seriously folks, someone better do something.
All I wanted to do was play my fricken drums. But we can't leave politics up to the politicians anymore. Cause they screw it up over and over and over again. That's MY money your messing with, you retards. Get out. Just go.
... to make it even more simple they are co-signing on a loan for Ukraine.
The US is providing a billion collar loan guarantee, to make it even more simple they are co-signing on a loan for Ukraine.

Obama paid Ukraine to disarm, promised to protect them, and now is using Taxpayer's money to re-arm them.
Yeah, lets have this traitorous scumbag of a president give aid and comfort to everyone else on our dollar
He deserves to be in prison or worse
