That’s right — $50,000. Of course there will be more with time, but please remember how former President George W. Bush was lambasted for initially committing only $15 million following the Asian tsunami.
Furthermore, keep in mind that this is the very same United States government which, at the direction of President Barack Obama, quickly sent $900 million to the Gaza Strip in order to assist in reconstruction after a brief war with Israel caused when Palestinians fired rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel, targeting innocent men, women and children.
So, let’s recap, using Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano’s new phrasing — we’ll send almost one billion dollars to reward violence and man-caused disasters, but we’ll only send $50,000 to assist recovery from natural disasters.
Yep. That sounds like the liberal administration we’ve grown to love.
