Aid for Americans!! Sad Isn't It?!

Okay folks. I dusted off the soapbox and have now firmly planted my enormous feet upon it.

*Takes a breath*

What in the hell is going on in this country!!!!!!! Please Lord, my GOD and Savior, help me understand the stupidity of the people running this speck of land on this insignificant planet! I read this blurb by an unknown author and it hit me so hard that someone actually thinks like I do. Are there more? Are we the majority or the minority? Why can't we band together and put an end to these atrocities in this country? Are we that busy in our puny little lives that we can't help our fellow countrymen and women? What if you lost your job tomorrow? How about your home? Think about what you would do tomorrow if everything you owned was gone and you had nothing. There are people in our towns, on our streets, in your neighborhoods that are 30 days from being on the streets with nothing but the clothes on their backs and children in tow. But "Damn WE have to send money to Haiti, Pakistan, Chile, etc. to help those poor people". BULLSHIT!!! I can't tell you how sick I am of hearing celebrities and public figures jumping on the "Oh look at me! I'm doing good." bandwagon. Angelina, Brad, Madonna, Sandra, I'm talking to you. PISS OFF!!! You're all a joke. Those kids you just had to have, to make you look like some benevolent benefactor bringing love to the unfortunate, are just a slap in the face of the children sitting in orphanages in the United States of America praying that someday one of you high and mighty givers will walk through the door and give them the dream of a family and home. I guess it's too hard to adopt an American child because you can't BUY the child. JACKASSES!!
And to you so called religious people. What is with going to Asia, Central America, and every other poor country to hand out medical aid, build houses, and/or give money? Help the people here! Trust me I bet the ones here would appreciate it more.

I can't stand it. It breaks my heart to see Americans starving and begging for help. We have to save ourselves people. Those other countries are going to laugh in our faces when the shoe is on the other foot. You think China is buying our debt to be benevolent? HA! They're doing it so they take our country. We're so worried about helping everyone else and this country is going down in debt because of it. This recession (more like depression) is getting worse and we have no one to turn to or blame but ourselves.
This is the statement I read, "We're 'broke' & can't help our own Seniors, Homeless, Veterans, Orphans, etc.?? This is so pathetically the last month we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey. Our retired seniors living on a fixed income receive no aid while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of millions of dollars 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. Why are so many American citizens, and the American government, so star struck they won't provide for our own? America: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment - yet we 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 we gave ourselves the same support that we gave all other countries. I feel bad for them but I also care about America and our Seniors who developed this great country only to be forgotten.

Sad isn't it?

Big Daddy

I have always felt the same way
We need to look in our own backyards of America and fix what's broke here before trying to make every other country "better". It starts here with our own people.
