I know fellas: it’s not easy being handsome and vaguely pro-choice. The thing is, vague pronouncements are not enough for us. We need a commitment from both of you to repeal Regulation 84-20 of New Brunswick’s Medical Services Payment Act (the regulation is in violation of the Canada Health Act, so yes, this applies to you too Justin). We also need you to take all necessary steps to ensure that anyone who needs an abortion can get one on demand and without paying a dime, just like with other essential medical services. #NBProChoice #StepItUpGallant

U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

Fun fact: Iron dome is funded using money taken directly from food banks, homeless shelters, and babies. It is the only U.S foreign aid expense and is directly responsible for literally all budget deficiency in this country.

Really that’s your take away here? That’s what you think anyone was commenting on here? Disingenuous at best.

I have been hearing about the scandalous foreign aid Israel gets every single day this year whenever Israel comes up, and several times a day over the past 2 weeks. Implying that iron dome funding bears any relation to the items listed in the OP is pretty damn disingenuous too, as is the worn-to-hell invocation of tax dollars.

I’m pretty much all in favor of being aware of where our tax money is spent and what’s prioritized. I find it quite helpful in selecting candidates to vote for personally. Massive, useless defense spending, which governments and movements are funded, and where a government looks first to cut spending are all very instructive and for most of its existence as a world power the US has chosen to prop up (expensive) oppressive regimes while determinedly ignoring/actively defunding programs that help the poor both here and abroad. $250M may not be a sum that would by itself save all the poor the world over, but it is all connected in a broader pattern of neo-colonial bullshit.

  • The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
  • The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
