  1. I clicked the link to view the article on Ynet and opted to have the article read to me and was pleasantly surprised by the highly tolerable robo-voice. I utilize this option wherever possible since I know how bad the screen is for our eyes – plus with it mostly being unpleasant crap that I am reading, all the better to take a little bit of strain off the eyes, right? A one minute and 34 second article read and for the first time ever in using the robo reader option, I got an ad – REALLY? 9 seconds left in a 1:34 audio clip and they throw in a 13 second GEICO ad? It was like getting a totally unexpected bitch slap and of course it’s jew news that did it to me.

  2. It was a painful article to hear, though mildly amusing to me in some way – everything is so blunt anymore, especially where the U.S. and Israel are concerned. It’s like they aren’t even trying to maintain any kind of dignity anymore as to what this U.S./Israel “alliance” is all about. The groveling and pandering is atrocious and even though I’d like to think I don’t care about such superficialities, I am still utterly embarrassed by this as an American & it pains me to know how this looks to some of our respectful fellow brothers and sisters of western civilization, even though the intelligent and informed of them know it is nothing the average good American is in any way in support of.
    What I would like to know is WTF exactly is going on here? I know with certainty a 38 billion dollar 10-year “aid package” was officially approved just this past July – like it is every year. I wish I had a better idea of how this works because I don’t understand why a 38 billion 10 year package has to get “approved” every year? Anyway, it was approved in July and it is specifically for “FOREIGN DEFENSE AID” – so isn’t that something their Iron Dome maintenance bullshit should be covered under? Um, yeah, of course it would be. What’s this nonsense with asking for 1 billion dollars for ANYTHING?

  3. It never ends for the universal parasites. I thought they were done sucking us dry, shouldn’t they be sucking off China now?
