This is my first rant. I am totally angry and wondering why this hasnt been thought of before?
In the last 24 hours the US economy has taken a huge hit. I am watching the news trying to make sense of it all. After discussing what it all means to
Americans, ie higher interest rates, etc, the very next story is a story about the United States sending BILLIONS of dollars in aid to Africa for
Now I am not heartless, I hate to hear of starving children in 3rd world countries, but I live by a budget. The US has to do the same.
Right now in my opinon, the US has no money to send to ANYONE outside our borders for ANY reason. We are broke. The Bank is closed. Period.
Why dont we stop sending money to help everyone else and concentrate on paying our bills?
In my house when we have a financial crisis, we pay our bills and whatever we have left we give to charity church etc. It is not the other way
If I have to budget and cut out my humanitarian monies why dont my government have to do the same?
Oh and why I am ranting, are other countries going to send aid to all of us when we cant take care of ourselves? I know in recent events such as the
tornados in the south and Hurricanes I dont recall other countries sending us aid.
It has to stop. In a crisis you have to take care of number one.
Why is it so hard?????????????????
