MSNBC: Hamas Rockets Actually Don't Do That Much Damage You Know

This is as simple as one can make it. In 1964 when President Johnson declared his War on Poverty the poverty rate was 14.7%. Since then we've spent $16 trillion (sounds like a fimiliar figure eh?) After spending the equivalent of the National Debt on poverty programs the poverty rate is over 15%. It has actually increased! Government simply cannot deliver any services, social, or otherwise in an efficient effective manner. And anyone who thinks they can is a fool.

Over the weekend in an interview with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, MSNBC host Mara Schiavocampo suggested rocket attacks "rarely do damage" as Israel continues to be under siege from Hamas militants and as millions of Israelis are camped out in bomb shelters.

“Living under the threat of rocket attack is certainly a psychological trauma. But what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective, they rarely do damage and that the response from Israelis is disproportional to the threat they’re under.”
