Once again our Conservative Reps chose to scuttle about like so many cockroaches after Rand Paul's bill to end foreign aid to Egypt, Libya, Pakistan and Yemen unless they met certain conditions.

Paul was filibustered for days until it was put to a vote and failed 10-81.

You folks wondered why the Hill was so silent following the torture and murder of our Ambassador to Libya along with our embassies in Tunis and Sudan forced to shut down.

They're self-serving cowards just like Billary and Obama. Our whole system is full of quislings and idiots who think what transpires in the ME won't affect their pampered, boozed up ass back home. It will in time. For now though, we're on our own. The Conservatives are too cowardly to do much of anything, except betray us when they can.

On the bright side, I can understand why Vlad put his traitorous nobles to the death in such great numbers.

Unemployment in Tunisia close to "our" western rates? Well, o.k., Tunisians may be employed, which does neither say that it is a gainfull employment nor that they do really work.
