After nine months of unemployment for many Americans due to forced government shutdowns, everyone must be incredibly relieved that Congress opted to send Pakistan $10 million for gender studies. Phew! The $700 million they sent to Sudan was also a big relief.
The internet was absolutely flooded with memes mocking Congress over that infuriating “COVID Relief” bill that they passed. They debated for nine months and ultimately ended up sending Americans measly checks for $600. If you had any doubts about the fact that the people in charge of this country are awful – and that they despise the people they’re supposed to actually be working for – that bill should provide you with plenty of proof.
Meanwhile, something like 40% of restaurants and other small businesses have permanently closed in blue states. But yeah… $10 million for Pakistan’s gender studies programs.
We got a chuckle out of this meme because of its absurdity, but also because it’s probably true. Pakistan won’t be spending one dime of that money to help girls learn to read or to help women get driver’s licenses. It’ll be used to fund Pakistan’s hostilities with India. Don’t spend your $600 in one place, Americans!
