I was just emailed photos of the devastation caused by Ike and my mind went back to Katrina.
Can anyone answer me a few questions?
1) Why do we send billions in foreign that will never be paid back to Israel, Iraq, and other countries when Americans whose homes and small businesses were destroyed by natural or man made disasters have to take loans and pay them back while still supporting foreign countries?
2)Why do area's in the USA not have electricity, clean water good schools, and enough food yet our tax dollars go to make sure other countries have these basics?
3)Why do Americans go without health care when our foreign aid goes to insure it for other countries and tax deductions are given for further donations to that?
4) Why do American school children go to school hungry yet we have food drives and foreign aid to other countries?
5) Why are our tax dollars going to bail out multi-national corporations?
I can go on and on and I'm sure you could too.
Does anyone in the American Government care about Americans or America?
I think it's about time all the incumbents are voted out and term limits of about 5 years are instituted without any retirement pay or health benefits in retirement.
Well can anyone answer my questions? Remember charity starts at home and if you can't take care of your own how can you take care of others?
