What is Going On?

This was sent from a friend - I thought I would share it!

Tuesday's Daily Bulletin paper, ran two articles on the front page side by side : 1- Calif's 20 Billion Dollar Budget Deficit 2- The Calif Supreme Court ruling that ILLEGALS can attend college and get benefits. Why don't they just deport them when they arrive to register? 3- Last year they ran an article on the yearly costs to Calif Tax payers from Illegals Using Hospital Emergency Rooms for their general health care - At just one hospital the cost to tax payers totaled over 25 million a year
Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!! We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,??????????? In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey . And now Pakistan .....home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! PLUS 3.& BILLIUON DOLLARS A YEAR TO THE JEWS IN ISRAEL! Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government pours Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries! They call Social Security and Medicare a entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when its time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans. AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc. YET..................... They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies. Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn't it? 99% of people won't have the guts to forward this. Because it might hurt someones feelings.
I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did

Graham Wonders About Obama's Birth Certificate

The Rev. Franklin Graham says he wonders why President Barack Obama has avoided producing his birth certificate, according to Politico. Graham also told Christiane Amanpour on ABC’s "This Week" that the president "has some issues to deal with" when it comes to proving he was born in the United States.

"He can solve this whole birth certificate issue pretty quickly," Graham said. "I was born in a hospital in Asheville, North Carolina. And I know that my records are there, you can probably go and find out what room my mother was in when I was born. I don’t know why he can’t produce that. It's an issue it looks like he can answer pretty quickly."

The Elderly White Population

Well known conservative columnist for the New York Times, Ross Douthat has written an op-ed for the April 17, 2011 edition in which he echoes exactly what I and many others have been saying for years. Of course, he is now being called a racist for stating the obvious. The article is titled The Middle-Class Tax Trap and he talks about Reagan, Mondale, taxes and what appears to be our apparent inability to escape increasing taxes. But it is interesting that he also gently suggests that as the baby boomer generation begins to die off and we enter an age in which non-whites will become the majority they will be less likely to support social programs that benefit what will still remain for many year a white elderly population.

"Historically, the most successful welfare states (think Scandinavia)

have depended on ethnic solidarity to sustain their tax-and-transfer

programs. But the working-age America of the future will be

far more diverse than the retired cohort it’s laboring to support.

Asking a population that’s increasingly brown

and beige to accept punishing tax rates while white

seniors receive roughly $3 in Medicarebenefits

for every dollar they paid in promises to polarize

the country along racial as well as generational lines."
