Now it makes sense.
The country where more people have Facebook profiles than passports.

I look at the famine in Africa, and honestly, I'm done giving a damn. Why? I think we need to stop helping Africa because they REFUSE to help themselves. They sit in their mud huts all day and bang out a kid every nine months, and don't make any effort to learn anything that would help them. They just walk over to the Peace Corps tent 3 times a day and get their free food.
We've been sending them assistance constantly for decades. We send Peace Corps volunteers to teach them how to grow crops, build structures more advanced than dirt and water, dig wells, domesticate animals, etc. and they STILL cannot take care of themselves. The only conclusion is a complete unwillingness to learn.
We send UN troops to defend them against gangs and death squads, and they kill the UN troop for his iPod or his watch.
And you want ME to continue to care? You want me to feel bad for them? Look at every other nation on Earth, and you'll see it's only the African ones that have not advanced beyond the stone age... actually, they havn't yet even advanced into the stone age.
Africa had their chance. We tried to help, yet they refuse to put forth any effort to help themselves. Instead, they would rather starve to death on some of the most fertile farm land on the planet.
I say we just sit back and let natural selection run it's course.edit on 7/31/2011 by Adyta because: (no reason given)

I have always been curious as to what organization is the most legit. I have read and heard that many keep the majority of the money and very little goes to the cause they are actually supporting. It is so hard to know nowadays. If anyone can shed some light, please share.

Don't just attack capitalism as the Communist Chinese are in Africa rapping the land and resources in exactly the same manner.
Your liberal bias is showing that it doesn't know what its talking about.
Maybe you should throw more money at the problem because that fixes everything. Like their education systems.

Not really. It is not my concern. I am more concerned about our problems here. Since I support ending ALL foreign aid, you should realize that I do not want the government to do anything about other countries issues. We need to fix our problems now.
