Let's see....the US gives out $23 BILLION in foreign aid (humanitarian, education, etc) AND an ADDITIONAL $14 BILLION to other countries to HELP THEIR FREAKING MILITARIES.....but yet we have closed bases here (to "cut the deficit), cut OUR military, VA hospitals are a F'In NIGHTMARE (trust me :pinch: )....& we have citizens WHO WERE BORN HERE who can't feed themselves, who live paycheck to paycheck.....

Why the F are we worrying about other countries? If their citizens can't feed themselves, TOUGH. Pass out birth control for all I care.....All that food we ship winds up on the black market anyway, & never gets into the right mouths!!! Most of these countries that the US gives money to hate Americans anyway!!!

These D'bags in Congress continually cut education, both @ the Federal & State levels..... :pinch: And why are we worrying about educating kids overseas, when our public schools are failing, & OUR kids can't read or write (but somehow seem to get a diploma!!)

All that money should be put back into OUR economy.....hell, give every citizen of voting age $100,000 w/ a written promise that they have to buy US goods & show receipts.....BUT NO WAY IN HELL the US should give out one thin damn dime to ANY country....I thought we were broke?

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

We need to stop leading the world, who could give a rat's arse about us. There's nothing in it for us.

I'm all for removing every single incumbent in Congress, no matter the party affliation, and start new.

What we need is a legitimate 3rd party because it'd a joke what is going on right now. We are trying to buy friends and it hasn't worked for the past 30 years. We finance other militaries then spend billions fighting them ten years later. Then have to rebuild the crapp hole country after the war!. Its a game of contracts they get their buddies contracts and get money under the table just look at how much and who got the obama care website contract. We send mega money to Mexico for what ? They cant even get that poor soldier who entered the country by accident out of the Mexican jail. Cut all aid to everyone bring our troops home and build a fence around the entire country and have them deployed along our borders

Wow, and I thought I was conservative! Buncha Libertarians here, I see. ;-)

I agree with the above posts, to a large extent. It's time for the U.S. to start stepping down as the world's police force and philanthropist. You can't keep giving to charities when you are using borrowed money in order to do so. I'm no expert on global politics, but I believe it's time for the U.S. to start seeing to our own needs first, and that means less giving and more producing. We need to become energy independent, first of all. We have more than enough natural resources to not import one barrel of oil, should we choose.

We also need to start breaking away from this "entitlement" mentality that the politicians have been breeding into the "sheeple" for decades now.

How about, instead of sending all this money overseas, we invest it here in the U.S. and we start with teaching our children how to read, write, do math, and about history, instead of how to be "tolerant" and "sensitive"?

As for overseas aid, I'm of the mind that if you aren't with us, you are against us. That means we help our NATO allies, period. I'm talking about as a government, not independent charities.

I think we rated in the mid to late 20s in math reading and science...just sad. Media is nonexistent and refuses to cover our gov'T officials for the crooks they are. They totally brainwashed the youth today into thinking rich people are evil and that its better to have your hand out. I love our country but am disgusted at what it is turning into. Just look at what the vets are going through to get medical attention

P.s. great thread jack

We should have gotten out of NATO & the United Nations DECADES ago.......you know what, sorry, we have to look after our own now.

Fact is we are going to need a president and congress that are willing to do very unpopular things to fix many of these problems
