US SENATE ACTS TO PREVENT GOVT. SHUTDOWN!


The Senate reached a bipartisan agreement intended to end a dispute over disaster relief spending that threatened to cause a partial shutdown of the government at the end of the week.

In two votes, the Senate approved short-term spending measures to fund the government for the start of the new fiscal year that begins Saturday. The deal hinged on FEMA’s new assessment that it has sufficient funding for the rest of the current fiscal year.

The measures now go to the House, which would need to approve them to ensure the government continues to be funded after Friday. [CNN]

MAY 23, 2011

TOP AID RECIPIENTS IN MIDDLE EAST

(REQUESTED FOR 2011 IN BILLIONS

1) ISRAEL                            $3 BILLION

2) EGYPT                             $1.6 BILLION

3) JORDAN                         $683 MILLION

4)  PALESTINIANS           $550 MILLION

5)  LEBANON                     $246 MILLION

[Dylan Ratigan Show]

We would give $550 Million to the Palestinians and what did they just do? The Fatah Party merged with Hamas who refuse to accept that Israel has a right to existLebanon has been quiet for while. Knock on wood! I hope that our foreign aid to Egypt will mean continued good relations between Egypt and Israel.
