First topic message reminder :

The president is announcing $2 billion in aid to Egypt and Tunisia. Someone please remind him that there are people in this country suffering as well. Will the Republicans call the Egyptians and Tunisians lazy? deadbeats? Doubt it. Sometimes I wonder about our government's priorities. I worked for YEARS, paid my taxes and contributed to the economy. When it comes time for temporary assistance, they play games in Washington as if people like us are afterthoughts. This is pathetic. Congratulations to the Egyptians and Tunisians.

I believe the subject of sending our money and reasoning why is necessary very much! It does have to do with power and balance of power. It also keeps the world somewhat stable as long as wealth is passed around. Look at it another way! Without our money and wealth being passed around then the world would be unstable and wars would arise to fight countries with wealth to gain that wealth and take over governments. Yrs ago that was the fear of Russia and China. But they are also now in a state of an economy to some degree. But the day is approaching that even self sustaining governments will eventually be hungry for more than an economy ad growth and supporting a people. They will want power and control. That was what WWI and II was about. The Japanese wanted to gain worldly power along with Hitler.But they failed. However today, If that is attempted < a world take over, then thats where a true Holocaust will be the end! Remember with governments power breeds corruption and corruption breeds power. then an appitite of hungar for power takes over....

When I said you were the only one, 1208, it was sort of a figure of speech, I didn't really mean that.

But let's look at it another way. What have we seen happen because we DON'T give aid.

In the 1980's we armed the Afghans and Bin Laden because they were fighting the soviets. After Russia left the country we cut off all support. We could have stayed and built schools and roads and infrastructure but instead we just said "the russians are gone, who cares about a school".

Years later a new generation grows up in poverty that we left and it allows a hole for the Taliban to take over Afghanistan. This is exactly what happened, they sheltered Bin Laden, our old ally, to allow him to plan the 9/11 attacks. If we had stayed in country and given aid at the time this would have eliminated the vaccum that the Taliban required to take over. Aid to Afghanistan at the right time COULD have prevented 9/11 altogether.

Of course we shouldn't contribute to dictators, even though we have been doing that in South America for decades, but I don't think we should eliminate all aid simply because a totally different country did something to us.
That would be like not giving you added weeks because your unemployed neighbor isn't looking for work.

We NEED NOT to get involved in NATION building or foreign aid anymore as long as we get screwed within OUR own borders by the crooks in DC. They pick OUR pocket to PAY for all this. IT NEEDS TO STOP.

Unfortunately this will never stop for a lot of reasons.
1. political gain around the world
2.America held hostage , give to us or else
3.You owe us because we are poor but you are rich!
4.We need to buy arms and build weapons! Guess what type.
5.balance of wealth and create poor in the US to equal other countries where Gov's take the wealth and keep the people poor, this way they have power to control.Control the wealth and control the people!

Lets see: Did I just see on news "President plans on debt forgiveness and increasing foreign aid". Can he allow the unemployed long term to have our debts forgiven and increase our aid????

Obama is just like the rest of our so-called leaders...A LIAR. All he cares about is getting re-elected. He has been running away from the promises he made before he was elected and has turned out to be one of the greatest disappointments in my lifetime. This country is doomed and headed for an unrecoverable collapse....

I am conflicted on this subject...I feel its important to help other countries, but also feel the help must start at home. So many of our own need help and should get it first before any other.

I understand helping others that need it. But there are millions in THIS country that need help and aren't getting it. Before you help clean up your neighbor's yard shouldn't you clean your own first? My boyfriend and I have been homeless for almost 3 months. We used to be middle class. We aren't on drugs or alcoholics, we aren't mentally ill, we have NEVER been homeless or had to apply for welfare. Why aren't other countries helping us? If our government won't acknowledge us much less help us, who will? Where do we go for help? Why aren't we protesting in the streets like they did in the 60's????

Also Mr. Numbnuts President is telling Israel WHERE there borders should go back to. IT'S NOT OUR BUSINESS!!!!! Guys NEEDS to get a CLUE and FIX THIS COUNTRY and STOP worrying ABOUT OTHER countries issues. We HAVE given TOO MUCH in TIME, MONEY and LIVES to the REST of the world, WHILE the infested ROT expanded in THIS country. IT HAS TO STOP!!!! Time to be a little selfish now and TAKE CARE OF US and this nations NEEDS.

Unfortunately this has always been going on. I sort of understand why they do it (I don't agree)but it doesn't work. For example many of these countries hate us, and hate Christians and jews, don't kid yourself about this.

Btw, Saudi, who we sell weapons to is the most repulsive country on the planet because of how they treat women. I am always sick everytime these scum balls are on tv. Lest we forget, 14 of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. However, because NEED to have SUV's (sarcasm) we deal with them forgas. Remember that next time you see a huge SUV or drive one yourself.

No country in the middle east will ever be taken seriously as a global equal as long as they have rules that say women can't drive.
