Notes: The Greenbook figures do not include missile defense funding provided by the Department of Defense.
According to USAID Data Services as of December 2021, in constant 2021 U.S. dollars (inflation-adjusted), total
U.S. aid to Israel obligated from 1946-2021 is $247 billion.
What do we get out of that aid to Israel? NOTHING.
With Ukraine it's aiding an actual war against a worldwide enemy. Not 80 years of handouts for no reason.
Whoever is willing...
(John Wayne from the Shootist) "First of all,friend, there's no one up there shooting back at you. Second, I found most men aren't willing, they bat an eye, or draw a breath before they shoot. I won't."
I made this meme for another stream, but couldn't post it cause I woulda pissed a bunch of people off. I figured my luck would be better here.
Conservative stream is general is open to political satire.
There's two jokes here. I'm actually surprised you didn't get em.
Using "Iranian" instead of Ukrainian, is mocking Joe Biden's mixing the two countries up at the beginning of the war. Reading teleprompters is hard, I guess?
Using an obvious staged photo, is mocking all the propaganda Ukraine sent over here at the beginning of the war showing models holding rocket launchers as if it wasn't obvious that professional photographers, photographing attractive models WASN'T ACTUALLY THE FRONT LINES.
Americans can't find Ukraine on a map. I don't care if you can or not. The Americans paying for both sides of this war CAN'T.

ya don't say?
"Americans can't find Ukraine on a map. I don't care if you can or not. The Americans paying for both sides of this war CAN'T."
ultimately it doesn't really matter if americans can't find ukraine on a map because of today's technology. now anyone can find anywhere within microseconds.
Ultimately it DOES matter. The United States has no reason to be funding everyone else's wars. Especially in 2nd world oligarchies like Ukraine that serve no military interest to us. Europe needs Ukrainian grain and natural gas. Not the USA. Let Europe pay for the bloodshed.
Zelenskyy's first act with his "wartime powers?" Ban all other political parties.
What's the name of the political system where you're free to vote for whoever you want as long as they're in the only legal political party?
"Ukraine is a Democracy like Russia is a democracy. Corrupt single party oligarchies"
ukraine would've been more vulnerable to an oligarchy had zelenskyy not banned the pro-russia parties. at least under his rule, the people can decide post-invasion if they don't like zelenskyy or not. so far, however, they're in his favor.
Zelenskyy: don't worry AFTER this emergency I'll return freedom to the people!
Lol. I heard that one before.
Ukraine is free to defend itself. It always has been. Waiting to get bailed out by America is just a way for the ruling elite to profit off the war.
Billions flow into the country and the guys on the front lines are still fighting with ww2 surplus and eating whatever they brought from home.
So while we'll "never know" what Zelensky did with the money (wink wink,) we already know what he DIDN'T do with it. Defend Ukraine.
