American Tax Dollars At Work - Repairing Mosques and Buying Computers Overseas
Did you know that dollars forcibly taken from you, in the form of taxes, are being spent overseas, in places like Eygpt and Cyprus, to refurbish mosques, and in places like Mali and Tajikistan your money is being spent to purchase computers and provide internet service?
The State Department says the monies being spent, which run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, American dollars, are for “relationship building.” I call the monies being spent, my money and your money, a debt I do not owe, nor desire to take on, and a slap in the face.
UPDATE: I neglected to thank reader Steve for the heads up on this bit of government chicanery. Thank you, Steve.
I can’t get a broadband wire for any reasonable money (have a Hughes dish, Arrr…) but yet I’m expected to pay for broadband for others?
The unmitigated gall.
I never took on a debt I didn’t owe nor am I in the habit of taking on other’s debt(s).
Default? Bring it.
