Two stories jumped out at me this morning… first we have the President’s plan to donate U.S. taxpayer money to the insane Libyan dictator’s family:
The Obama Administration plans to give $400,000 in funding to a Libyan charity run by the Gadhafi family, and U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) wants the grant withdrawn.
The money would be divided between two foundations run by the family of Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi. A $200,000 share is set to go to the Gadhafi Development Foundation, which is run by Gadhafi’s son, Saif, and another $200,000 are to go to Wa Attassimou, an organization run by Muammar Gadhafi’s daughter, Aisha.
And then we have the President’s disapproval of pension money for members of the WWII-era Alaskan Territorial Guard:
The White House move drew swift rebuke from the state’s two senators, Republican Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Mark Begich, who had together sponsored the pension fix.
The legislation honors 26 elderly Alaskans who are the few remaining survivors of a military unit that served the country with valor, Murkowski said, calling the administration’s direction “deeply disappointing, bordering on insensitive.”
See Redstate for an outline of the services these guardsmen provided to our country in a time of war.
Draw your own conclusions.
With apologies to REO Speedwagon, Dan at POWOP expresses his feelings re the WWII Alaskan guard story, in song:
