Wisdom for our day - do not trust in man!

Psalm 146: 3,4

Do not put your trust in princes,
Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

His spirit departs, he returns to his earth;
In that very day his plans perish.

Translated:

Do not put your trust in presidents (Obama)

sorry to put out of place comment here, but other site said closed.
In reference to the $20.3 million, do a search.
It is false, the refugees are not moving here.
this is from our govt website:

U.S. ASSISTANCE TO THREE AGENCIES

Of the $20.3 million in new emergency funds, $13.5 million will go to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), $6 million to the International Committee of the Red Cross and $800,000 to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. These agencies will distribute emergency food assistance, provide medical assistance and temporary shelter, create temporary employment, and restore access to electricity and drinkable water for people living in the Gaza Strip, the department said. About 1.4 million Palestinians live in Gaza.

“Today's contribution to UNRWA augments the $85 million the United States contributed in December 2008 toward UNRWA's 2009 appeals,” the department said.

UNRWA is the largest provider of humanitarian aid in Gaza, providing 70 percent of the population with emergency food assistance, essential health care and primary education. “We are working to develop a longer-term reconstruction [and] development effort with international partners,” the State Department said.

The relief efforts have begun in earnest following a 22-day conflict between Israeli and Hamas forces. Hamas, a terrorist organization, seized control of the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian Authority in June 2007. The conflict began when Hamas launched dozens of rockets and mortars into southern Israel. Israel responded with an air and ground offensive to halt the attacks.

In addition to the aid announced January 30 by the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development has provided more than $3.7 million for emergency assistance to Gaza. “Food, milk powder, blankets, plastic sheeting and other nonfood items have been distributed to beneficiaries, and the distributions are continuing,” the department said.

This was a good place for the comment. I was thinking of posting that again on this site. Maybe I won't. Thanks for the enlightening info. It was one of those emails that someone sent me. I don't know where he got it.

For those who are wondering what anonymous is referring to, it's my post on my Wordpress blog about Obama's troubling agenda.
