Foreign Aid

I gave an older union man a 5 minute rant on foreign aid and once I was done he agreed with me 100%

"If we can't even afford to feed and shelter our own, why are we sending billions of dollars to nations on the other side of the world?"

"You'd like to think that money goes to, you know, building schools.. hospitals.. but it actually goes to the people with power who drop the cash on weapons. So we're actually just funding war and not helping people."
