Now that is an assault pastry!!!!
I am annoyed. I am so frustrated with this administration and the lunacy that has become our reality. The school system is dumming down our children and not teaching them the basic skills of life. They actually do not teach cursive anymore and focus on handwriting. They downplay the need for grammar and spelling. The teachers teach the kids what they need to know for the standardized tests. It's beyond negligent, and all the teachers I know absolutely hate it. There are a million things that I feel should be taught to my kids, and putting on a condom on a banana isn't one of them. The schools have gone overboard with the no tolerance rule and suspend children for eating a pop tart that resembles a gun or playing cops and robbers using his hand to pretend to shoot. What's next? Should we get rid of Florida because it's shaped the same way? What about the letter " L " turn it sideways and bam, another gun!
Gun control is running rampant and rape is being belittled by telling victims to throw up or wet themselves. Our friends are being treated as enemies, and our enemies are given millions of dollars in aid. The Constitution is being shredded and crumpled beneath Obama's feet
Obama is harping about the sequester, like a 2 year old throwing a temper tantrum and yet...
We gave away millions to other countries (Egypt = 250 million, plus hundreds of millions worth of F-16 fighter jets and M-1 Abrams tanks ) when the families here and working their butts off to try and keep a roof overhead. The Obama administration made a deal to provide to Egypt, a nation whose president, Mohammed Morsi, leads the Muslim Brotherhood.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is spending $1.5 million to study the “high public-health significance” of why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not. 1.5 million, people!! That is a lot of money, maybe not to some, but to the hard working, middle class that are getting trampled it is a fortune!

[10) Millions In Foreign Aid to… China? – (Department of State & U.S. Agency for International Development) $17.80 Million
America‘s national debt recently surpassed $15 trillion, much of which it borrowed from a
variety of foreign countries. China, whose U.S. debt holdings exceed $1.1 trillion,55 is at the top of that list.
So taxpayers might be shocked to learn that each year the United States provides millions in aid to China.56 In 2011, the U.S. government spent nearly $18 million on foreign aid programs to its biggest sovereign lender.57 This included $2.5 million for social services and about $4.4 million for programs to improve China‘s environment.
In fact, China can better afford to fund these programs than the United States at this point.
While the U.S. public debt exceeds 100 percent of its Gross Domestic Product, China‘s debt to-GDP ratio is only 26 percent. ]
For the complete list head over to Senator Tom Coburns Wastebook!
This is why America is dying, my friends and unless we start demanding cuts in useless spending this will be our children's future.
