What Is Wrong?
 
Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that
run this country!!!!!!



We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans,
Homeless etc.,???????????

In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey
. And now Pakistan .....home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of
DOLLARS!!!

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 Billions of $$$$$$'s 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' meds, and
mentally ill without treatment -etc,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?

99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.
I'm one of the 1% -- I Just Did

If only we had some kind of government programs to provide supplemental income, medical care, and food to low-income retirees ...

Unfortunately, more than 1% of the people are as gullible as you.

I think the writer is confusing guts with brains- or lack thereof...

Socialism! Ebil I tell you.

One day it's the gobernment-provided food, shelter, and medical care, and afore ya know it ya got yerself iron curtains and reedumaaction camps.

Not here, nosiree bob.

I wonder just how much pumping the aid dollars into local needs would actually help them. Problems like homelessness aren't going to be fixed with a quick cash injection.

Besides, domestic needs aside, what international implications would there be of the US not sending aid to a stricken nation after such a catastrophic natural disaster? I can't imagine the global response if the US said "Nope, actually we've got a few homeless here that we decided to give the money to instead".

I suppose the writer doesn't donate to any charities themselves unless every member of their family is entirely happy and problem-free...
