    Why Is It Ok To Send Money To Those In need in Other Countries But Not to the needy in our country?

    DOESN'T IT SEEM LIKE NO MATTER HOW "BAD" OUR ECONOMY IS. THE U.S. POLITICIANS  ALWAYS  SEEMS TO FIND MONEY TO HELP, PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES, BUT ARE AGAINST SENDING MONEY TO HELP THE NEEDY IN OUR COUNTRY?

    The US entitlement and welfare system is massive, complex and pervasive. Why would you say politicians oppose passing out other peoples' money? They in fact love doing that, and the needy in the US get a great deal of it.

      You are right, who in the US government is against sending money to help the needy in the US? I think weasey would actually prefer we give all our tax money to the poor here. It's called income redistribution, enter Barack Obama and his democrats.

      If you think that, what you 'think I prefer" is substantive, and If you can't see the substance of what I said compared to what you said...
      no further comment is necessary or needed

      Hey, no prob. I just thought the usual, that someone who takes a public position on an issue would be able to support it. It's no big deal that you can't.

      my comments were for "don't taze me bro"
      and my comments aren't "stark" it just my view of the situation. I'm not here to argue or debate just putting forth the question for readers to address and answer.

    Yes, it is a huge problem. I feel compassion for the needy (wherever they are), but neither compassion nor continuous funding provides incentive for others to build their own prosperity. And in a time when so many Americans are out of work or can only find partial employment, I find it unforgivable for our politicians to be handing out billions and billions of dollars to prop up and/or maintain the economy of other nations.

    The Rockefellers and Rothschilds have all manner of ways to leverage more power toward the New World Order.

    Foreign aid is one more way to move the chess pieces forward.
