What The Hell Is Going ON?

(The following was sent to me by an “old friend” from grammar school days-Jan Kollitz)

Well?

Republicans AND Democrats…..

We read the jokes and forward the good ones, but I just wonder who will pass this one on.  How about you sending it on and back to me if you have got the guts to do so.  I just wonder how many I will get back?   Someone please tell me what the hell’s wrong with all the people

To:  Both Democrats and Republicans,

We’re “broke” and can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, Etc.??????????

In the last years we have provided direct cash to aid Hamas—351 M,  Libya—1.45 B, Egypt—397 M, Mexico 622 M, Russia—380 M, Haiti 1.4 B, Jordan 463 M, Kenya—816 M, Sudan—870 M, Nigeria—456 M, Uganda—451 M, Uganda 451 M, Congo 359 M, Ethiopia—981 M,  Pakistan 2B, South Africa 566 M, Senegal—698 M, Mozambique—404 M,  Zambia—331-M, Kazakhstan 304 M. Iraq—1.o8 B, Tanzania—554 M.  With literally Billions of Dollars, they still hate us!!!

Our 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 $$$$$$$$$$ 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 medication and mentally ill without treatment—etc.

YET…………..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 medical supplies.

IMAGINE if the “GOVERNMENT” gave “US” the same support they give to other countries.  Sad, isn’t it?

  1. I never put thought into this, but thinking about it it is true, those countries are getting help from this country and many people from those countries show hate towards america. It is sad that america doesnt help its people more and truely do something fo all these hungry people here. This is something the government should put more thought into, “its own people”!

  2. Wow, I never really thought about this before, probably because I have never gone hungry. America should definitely be helping out its own people before it helps out others.

  3. The government should be taking care of our country more than other countries because of obvious reasons. It’s kind to help other countries but the U.S government should first focus on our own problems.

  4. Yes, I did find it sad how our country helps other countries so much but what about us? Like mentioned there are homeless without shelter and children without food and there are billions of dollars being sent to help aid other countries. US citizens should come first then other countires should be helped. Imagine if the majority of that money was used towards the US. Maybe that would help the deficit, and the national debt wouldn’t have to be continously being raised.

  5. this article is well written and is exactly what we need to hear. Our economy is bad though we have done so much good. in other words we do need to fix the debt some how. republicans and democrats both share this vision to help others,but at the same time help our country.

  6. This an eye opener. Everyone in our country always complain about how bad the economy and how everyone is broke but we always have money to aid other countries. We should really focus on our own county’s financial woes before trying to help someone else.

  7. I agree with the other responses to this article. I guess I never realized how much we spend helping other countries. I think that it definitely needs to be regulated because we cannot even afford a lot of things in this country that we need. We are having budget cuts from schools, school programming, community developmental things, and even hospitals are having pay cuts, and getting rid of employees. ROP was recently notified that the whole department was going to be “let go” in june. We have people in this country need jobs and here we are passing around money like we can..when we so obviously can, all you have to do is look around, or listen to the peoples needs.

  8. This just all proves that Amercia is slowly going to become a 3rd world country by 2016. We are in so much debt, mostly to China and Obama is trying to raise the debt so much that this country falls under China’s control of communism. I do not believe it is so much that we cannot help the homeless, seniors, veterans, and orphans because there are many people out there with organizations tryin to do so.

  9. Before this article, I was unaware of the large amount of money the U.S. supplies to other countries knowing we are in such a debt crisis. It really is sad that we spend this much money helping other countries and in turn hurting our own people. It is more so sad that all this money is going to these outside countries, but we don’t even know how its being spent.

  10. Wow this article opened up my eyes. I know that the US has helped out many countries with their needs and disasters but I never thought about it in this way. It is very sad to hear that the US, our own country, is more focused on the needs of other countries rather than its own, just so it can benefit from them. I believe that the US should start caring more and putting first the needs of its own country rather than the needs of other foreign countries.
