Not necessarily - the reason those sinkholes are opening in...

...Detroit is due to ongoing lack of maintenance and disrepair. That was pointed out in the article.

Unlike Florida sinkholes which are pretty much unavoidable due to a high water table.

If our national infrastructure was being tended to with that foreign aid money) our government gives away (over 60 BILLION a year), we'd be a lot better off at home.

My argument is very sound - I START EVERY conversation about our national debt and national problems by mentioning the billions upon billions our government shamelessly gives away to foreign nations every year.

When the day comes that not ONE American is living on the street or impoverished - then THAT'S the day I will even DISCUSS foreign aid.

And that discussion would begin by stating that our government has NO AUTHORITY to give ANY country even ONE PENNY of U.S. taxpayer money.

NOT ONE PENNY!

That is what charities and churches are for...PERIOD.
End of subject.
