Received today via e-mail...

Read the following and form your own opinions. It is in the results from a GPOAccess search using the term "Gaza". It appears to me that 20 million plus has been set aside (yes, over two months ago) to assist in the emigration of those who wish to leave Palestine. This is just one more thing that makes me believe that no one person could ever understand all of our "laws". And, I will have to read on the Constitution some more to figure out where the "power vested in me by the Constitution and laws..." actually allows for this sort of behavior.
