Time for a diet!

There is a lot of talk about how we should cut the debt. Cut social security or medicare. I got an email about cutting Congress' and the president's pay. I read in the news about cutting aid to Israel's neighbors.

Why not put Israel on a diet? Cut 'em loose. Cutting aid to Israel won't harm them, unlike the diet terminology Israel used for Palestinians... see the second and third items below.

Actual number of calories Gazans need to stay alive was calculated. No joke. The result, the facts on the ground are that virtually nothing gets in. How's that for the "only democracy in the Middle East," the "most moral army in the world ??" Sounds like something else to me.
