Rush made a good point today

Published:

Rush Limbaugh made a good point today about the $350 mil.  relief fund heading to Thailand. Like I predicted earlier, the Democrats tried to start some junk about Bush being tight with only $35 Mil. to start with.  Well, he should be. That's taxpayers hard earned money. There has to be a plan in place for whom will recieve the money and how. I appriciate the fact that he was wanting to be cautious with the money. But, NOOOO, the Democrats and other countries like France ( who really owes the US a debt of graditude) claims Bush is being tight and should up the anty.  That figures.

Now, there are Millions and Millions of dollars heading over to help. But to what???  What is the actual death count ? I remember 10,000, then 20,000, then at last count 150,000 ??? Hmmm Haven't heard a count in days now that all these Millions are committed for relief. HMMM!!! Hey, one Hotel owner in Thialand asked that the reporters report that his Hotel is open and unharmed. The news reports show mass distruction. But the the fact is it was only in the beach line area.  THE POWER OF THE NEWS.  I have a bad feeling that these Millions of our hard earned tax money is not going to be put to proper use. Maybe 50 to 60 % of it but not all. That's not counting all the Millions that the Red Cross and fund drives have collected.  I just have a bad feeling about this.

We may not have an accurate death count for weeks; many people are still unaccounted for and, while I agree with the pundits that it's unlikely anyone else will be found alive, we can't just write those people off. If this is your first exposure to the potential misuse of American tax dollars, then Rush Limbaugh will serve you well, since he loves to point those things out to us. He's paid around ten million dollars a year to tell us what we should think about any issue which happens to catch his fancy, and I think we should realize his opinions are as valid and important to posterity as those of any other drug addict. The United States has given more foreign aid to more nations than all other countries of the world combined. It's going to take a few weeks to raise that kind of money; Bush doesn't have a checkbook on his desk from which he can draw relief funds at his own discretion. The ultimate decision on how much aid will be sent rests with congress, not with the president. Personally, I'm growing tired of all the bipartisan name-calling and game-playing. Our elected officials need to be reminded that they serve at the will of the people, not that of the lobbyists. They all tend to become complacent and lazy after a few months in office, to the point where they forget who they work for. Until recall elections become truly popular in America, we're just going to have to put up with it.

"Until recall elections become truly popular in America, we're just going to have to put up with it."
I wish we could have done that during the Clinton Administration. Hmmm
