A must read, we have to stop giving away all this money in order to play

big daddy in the world, a year it totals 26 Billion dollars ! We could use this

money in our own country we should only give money in case of a severe

catastrophe not black mail money to keep our forces in a country or to

prop up a Govt.

Cheers...Joe...Very Happy

Joe,

These were the 2009 figures!!! Can you imagine what they are today? It not only upsets me that we give away so much foreign aid and cry we're broke when it comes to our own domestic needs (Social Security, homelessness, hunger, healthcare, research), but it really upsets me when many of these same nations (Pakistan, Mexico, Egypt and even at times Israel) publicly challenge us and take sides against us concerning world affairs. Just once I would like to see the administration tell them, "Sit down and shut up or we'll cut off the money!"

When I become King, these people are in for a real shock!

Good post Joe. I think more people should be aware of where our money goes and for what. As Don says, they should sit down and shut up. It irkes me when the countries who depend on us for handouts, defy UN Resolutions and ignore restrictions placed on the weapons they purchase. Cutting them off is a good attention getter.

What is worse is when our government tries to cut important services to our citizens as Don mentioned. They want to balance the budget on the backs of our citizens while sending billions to other countries. Time to stop this nonsense.

i donno! Neutral

first of all, i agree with u, u guys should stop giving away all this
money specially to the 3rd world because WE (the 3rd world animals) are
not seeing a penny out of it!! even the hard stuff like food &
medicine u send, we end up buying it from those who stole it!!!
:_((

but on the other hand, the u.s. embassy announced 2 days ago that a
bunch of 70 iraqi corrupted politicions (whom, that money & u.s
protection goes to) now have a personal wealth of 700 billion
dollars!! (talk about getting rich fast!) O_o
most of it are in american banks! O_o
and guess what.. THEY AINT PLANNING TO PUT IT BACK INTO FUCKED UP IRAQ
OR ANY OTHER 3rd WROLD BANK & STOCKS!!! >O

soooo.. does that count as a good business?! give 26, take 700 back, and earn a good-hearted giver reputation!! :\

so, i really donno, the whole thing sounds like just a well planned good business to me! :_((

I heard a great debate regarding overseas aid. The conclusion was that all aid should stop at once and force all nations to "apply" just like all government programs should be run.

The application would have the same "sustainability" requirements of Federal grants within the U.S. Will the receiving government tax their own citizens to increase their budget to makeup for the timeline reduction in aid? Will the receiving government use the money as intended? (Performance bonus here).

Recipients that become dependent become dependently cynical and resentful. Look at children - give them everything and then try denying something....

Worlwide needs should be part of the United Nations....

I think many political thoughts are quite logical; it's in the implementation and details that all gets lost.

All foreign aide to any country should go before a USA

review board, with many questions on how the money

would be spent, each country should have it's own

review board who decides where the money goes, no funds

should be given to any leader of a country...

Cheers..Joe...

D.K, Joefrank,
(ok, this is not meant to sound offending in anyway, REALLY!) but what
i find to be so cute is that not a single person in this blog seems to
have a clue about how things work over here (3rd world)

for a start, u should stop thinking of our.. what do u call it?!
GOVERNMENTS!! yes, thats the word! GOVERNMENTS!! ..u should stop
thinking about them (ALL OF THEM, TRUST ME!) as 'governements', and
start thinking of them as a band of thieves... with an army, police
& nsa at their service O_o


((Recipients that become dependent become dependently cynical and resentful. Look at children))

for god's sake they are not children!! they dont need to learn a thing!
or help! or anything!!!! they are smarter and more adult than all of us
here...!!! just thiefes! doing theft thingys!!! so of course they are
getting "dependant" on the money u give! any thief u give him a free
bonus, free of every risk! is gonna become DEPENDING on it and cry when
he dont get it! :\
that doesnt mean they gonna stop robing our pockets anyway! but a free money is a free money, right! >D


((will the receiving government use the money as intended? (Performance bonus here).))

noooo! they are not INCAPABLE!! they dont need no candy from u!! ..just thiefes!! :\

((review board))
finally something smart! WEHHEEE XD

sure, joe.. we have two kinds Very Happy
1- just a formalities public one! to make u guys think we have an
actual review board..... SUCKERS! bwahahahaaa >D
2- a board made of 1-1000 guys! depends on how many are owning the
country right now! Neutral pretty much all it does is dividing the
booty among them.. but it doesnt work that great! u see, theres no
honor among thieves! >D

for god sake! do i really have to spell it

we, z people, see 0 dollars!
and u're giving all ur money to T.H.I.E.F.E.S! who build palaces in... anywhere but here! XD

i know it sounds childish they way i posted this thread, but u'll sound
childish as well when u see a bunch of people banging their head to a
wall u already banged ur own head it to ur heart delight! its called
SARCASIM!! >D

You didn't get an answer, Joe. "a car-bomed anti-christians country! O_o" is not located on any map I have. And getting the "PEEP OUTTA THIS PEEP" doesn't clalrify much either.

I guess we are right--don't give money to other countries. it is abused and misused and we are in need ourselves.

Makes one wonder what was accomplished by invading Iraq. Billions of dollars down the drain,but more imortantly, hundreds of thousands killed. For what? For a philosophical ideal (democracy)? For oil? To say, I'm tough?
It's all madness. Just saw a documentary about the Cuban Missle crisis. We came so close to a third world war, but were saved by the intelligent actions of John Kennedy and his brother, Robert. We owe them a huge debt. Can you imagine what would have happened if GWB had been President?

I thought we learned from Viet Nam; apparently not. The invasion of Iraq was wrong. Period. We are paying the price for electing people that put us there. Some of us are paying economically; many lost loved ones and lives were forever changed in this country, the supporting allies and the country of Iraq.

I note that former President Bush popped up a couple times in this campaign and then disappeared again. The Republican Party must have told him to step back; his legacy is too toxic and the short-memory citizens might get their memory back. Who can forget former President Bush on the deck of the ship declaring victory? The Democratic campaign should run shots of that on their ads...the only thing different about this year's Republicans is that they are further to the right, gave the votes of their constituencies to one man, Grover Norquist, and are setting back women's health by a generation.
