I know some will disagree with me and I know that some will not like me but at the same time I am a loner in reality with no friends just family so I cant begin to understand how I would care if someone on a site dont like me... That should go for everyone.. So in saying that I will state my point.

Tornadoes just ripped through the United States... Relief efforts and donations are being brought up and for good cause yet you will see way more money going to the Typhoon victims from our president and other Americans than you will that of our victims right here in the United States.... How and where could that at all seem logical at all to any true to the red white and blue American....

Rant off.

i agree. while it is a good gesture to take care of the less fortunate, i think our allegiance should be here. i am in IN where a lot of the tornadoes ripped through, we need help in the midwest. i agree with the notion to take care of #1 first. while i hate what happened in the Philippines, i know folks here are hurtin, too.

Its not just that though. I am sick and tired of watching tv and seeing these little African kids that for 3 cents a day or 25 cents a day or whatever it is you can feed and cloth and help this little boy/girl with a better life yet in all the big cities we have homeless kids or kids in foster care or whatever... What about the kids here in the united states that through neglect and through carelessness they get involved with gangs or become solo thieves or whatever... We have enough problems that if we shut our doors to everyone right now it would take a LONG LONG time to fix ourselves within....

Dont know the exact quote but someone once said that american will destroy itself from within again made true when russia came right out and said we will take over the united states without ever having to fire a shot... Look at the steps being taken
socialism which they practice is starting to become more and more here... The lack of care for our own people yet efforts to fix everyone else are of high regard... They will fly over walk right into the white house sit down and the next address of the nation will be saying how we now belong to the great mother russia....

It starts with baby steps the neglecting of our own....

Sorry thought the rant button was turned off.. I will try this time to make sure it stays off lol...

People I discussed making contributions to the tornado relief believe that everyone has insurance, so they don't really need it.

No no, dont apologize, i hear you. it needs to be said, its a big problem. I feel bad for all children, all over the world, but i am an american first and my family members didnt fight for our country to not take care of our own. poverty is bad in the US, even kids here dying of starvation

Yes I want Americans taken care of. However when I see a 400 lb. woman complaining that she hasn't eaten. When it turns out that there has not been a job in that family in generations I have issues. At that point it seems the tornado is simply the latest tool in the scam. It is one reason why we need discernment in those who distribute the aid and consequences for those who abuse it.

Never apologize for putting Americans first. If there are any scraps left after we help Americans let someone come here ,load it and haul it to those that might need it. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying we should pay to rebuild houses, but give them the basics to live in, eat and clothes to wear so they can get there lives going again. If they didn't have insurance then I would guess it wasn't worth anything to them to begin with and they don't need it now. Sucks to be cheap/stupid. And I'm only talking American citizens, all others can get aid from their country of origin. American first all others are on their own!

Agreed. We, as Americans are far more blessed, fortunate, lucky, whatever you wish to call it, than 90% of the world. We have more food, clothing, money and materials also. I know it would be easy to shut our borders to other countries BUT I think once we do, we will loose that blessing, luck, karma. Sharing with others is part of our humanity towards others. Especially the children who can not fend for themselves. We give so much of our resources to the lazy, drug addicted, unemployed population of our country who have come to expect it. I don't mind the hand-up, it's the expected hand-out we have nurtured into our society. We are created in His image and we are called to be a reflection of that image. That includes loving others even to self sacrifice. I mean that's the measure of a true gift isn't it?

Why, they punish those who work and pay for their free shit every day. You can turn the other cheek, I'm sick of it and don't want to turn my cheek anymore, if you allow it to continue how will it ever get fixed. Time for all to suck it up and say enough.

Thought for the day "bitterness is like taking poison and hoping the other person dies".
Am I unhappy with the current state of our country? ABSOLETLEY!! Do I condone what our President has done to it? No Way! But blaming others or becoming bitter over it does nothing but frustrate me and cause undue health problems. I have high BP because of years of doing just that. Now I'm not preaching to anyone, besides me, about how to re-act or behave. Far be it from me. Just a thought on living less frustrated and mentally healthy. It will give you the edge over your opponent. "cooler heads prevail when those around them are loosing theirs". Tactically sound advice I think.

Charity begins at home.

We send billions of dollars to countries that use that money to try to kill us and others. This needs to stop. That money would do more good here.

We heard the insurance cop out during hurricane Ivan down here. That irks me too. Homeowners insurance does not help feed your family or give hou basic necessities. My deductible here in Florida is 10,000 or 10% of the market value of the home whichever is GREATER.

I am one that has weird viewpoints, so I will lkkely shock a few people with this one.... The United States needs to stop all foreign aid and apply that money to the deficit. If you were to ask me for money to help you out in a jam, I would give some if I had it..... but if I was broke like the country is right now, I would have to say sorry I have none to give. Does thay mean we cant help the typhoon folks? Nope. It means we give relief for basics only... water and mres. Unfortunately when the US gives money it has strings attached saying you have to set up a governmennt program... blah blah blah.

Anything else other than the basics needs to be done through the red cross or other non profits.... not my tax money.

As for the tornado victims.... basics first incentives later and non profits sjould step up as should we in our donations. FEMA and DHS has a habit of overspending and underserving.

It always bothers me to see how fast the governement is to send aid to other countries when we can't help those here in ours. I feel bad for anyone who has lost everything like those in the Phillippines, but feel our government has no right to send money when we have such a huge debt already. What is he doing? borrowing more money from china so he can send it to another company so it makes him look like a hero? Get real. Help our people and pay down the debt before spending more of what we have had to borrow. How many countries are sending us aid now to help the tornado victims?

Do y'all know that we pay nothing on the principal? We are still paying interest on loans from WWII. The money borrowed from China is to pay interest on these other loans plus to send aid to other countries.
