Should Foreign Aid Money Have Been Used For Domestic Victims of Tornados, Hurricanes, Floods etc Instead?

Maybe I'm just a lone nut to think that instead of the rotten rats in congress sending billions upon billions of U.S. dollars abroad in foreign aid, MAYBE it should have been used for natural disasters right here at home.

After-all, didn't the people who lost their homes pay federal taxes all their lives?

Wouldn't THEY have more right to those funds than some EFFING FOREIGN GOVERNMENT?

Maybe I'm way off base here.

I'm not saying it's even a proper role of the federal government to be involved in giving out money to anyone, but if they're going to do it - THEN MAYBE THEY SHOULD KEEP IN THE U.S.

Not that I believe in FEMA at all.

BUT BEFORE YOU GIVE ONE PENNY to Haiti, should not it have been saved for emergencies right here at HOME?

There are those in congress who are saying no aid should be given to Oklahoma unless we find a way to pay for it.

But Oklahoma probably needs just a few billions dollars in aid WHILE CONGRESS GIVES AWAY 55 BILLION a YEAR in foreign aid.

But maybe I'm just all wrong about this.

Right there with ya, 'storm.

At this point, F*CK foreign aid!

It all too often goes to the wrong people anyway....

be a no brainer. I'm beginning to think these guys' brains have been sucked out and replaced with something sinister.

It's all a scam. They'll print enough money and loan it and continue to do their thing without missing a beat.

I just don't understand why Americans aren't screaming about...

...all the money our government gives away to foreign nations.

The founders would be livid about this.
