Who Should Come First?
Nobody Gets Email: Another disaster. Nuclear waste seems to be heading our way, and Obama is going to war in Libya. Where are we going to get the money? Harry Reid: fork up.
This is about how Americans give more to other countries than to our own. While no one asked us to help out the floods up North, or the floods and fires all over this nation: we are still giving out billions to other countries first, which is due to the people who lobby in Washington, and it's not the little American guy carrying his poor friend, begging for help.
(I know, I love this picture.)
Anyway, I got this short email this week...author unknown.
(Thanks to Pat)
CAN I SAY SOMETHING? WAKE UP AMERICA!! WE OWE THE WORLD NOTHING!
Will someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country!!
We're "broke" and can't help our own seniors, veterans, orphans, homeless etc.,??
Congress can themselves raises, but NO COLA for all of us on Social Security!
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey. And now Pakistan....home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!
Or retired seniors living on a 'fixed income', receive no aid nor do they get any breaks, while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of billions of $$$$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!
We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans!
AMERICA: A country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds and mentally ill without treatment, etc, etc.
They have a "Benefit' for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors and medal supplies.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.
Sad isn't it?
