    I am really upset. I honor the Jews who have lost their lives in Germany and around the world because of their race and religion. I do not believe we can afford to donate to anybody while we are so in debt. Helllllllooooooo! How do you think we got there. It’s like telling a spoiled teenager they can’t use their credit card. It’s disgusting to see how our politicians conduct their business.

      It wasn’t just Jews who “lost their lives” at this time. The German Nazi government carried out a program of methodical genocide and murder. The money invested (and yes, I choose the word “invested” on purpose) is to ensure that people understand what happened so that it does not happen again. The amount of money pledged to this program, as a percentage of our national GDP, is less signficant than a penny as a proportion of your income, and a much wiser investment to humanity. Maybe you should direct your indignation at the truly significant amounts the Department of Defense is spending to develop weapons that only incrementally increase our ability to kill enemies in new and not-so-novel ways while not increasing our actual security at all.
