    "All the things you mentioned as being unfair are things that we, as a country, volunteered for."
    Labor didn't volunteer it our politicians and media did, but labor is paying the price. I remember the Tsunami before Japan GW Bush was giving x amount of Dollars the media made him to be cheap. Then we upped the amount big, but they said just send the money. Every Dollar handed out raises the price of our products. We as a nation need to take care of ourselves first. Just like a father & mother your Family first. This is another problem lack of Family, it hurts the schools, future labor, its like a cancer without a cure.

      As you know, America is the first country to send aid when other countries are in trouble."


      It is highly appropriate that we now send THANKS to all of the countries that reciprocated for

      our help with their disasters, misgivings, social turmoil, & poverty by sending to the United

      States of America monetary and physical help when Sandy ravaged our East Coast leaving dead,

      homelessness, and pure disaster.

      Listed below are all the Countries and World Organizations that are giving us gracious assistance.

      Please assist in thanking these entities by passing on this email so people all over America can join

      in and THANK our neighbors, to whom we have invested BILLIONS!!!!



      First on the list is…




      1.



      Maybe now Americans will realize that charity begins at home. With millions of our people in need and

      in poverty, let's save our borrowed money and spend it at home instead of sending it to Egypt, Libya, Pakistan,

      etc........Staten Island and parts of New Jersey would gladly thank America if we spent the billions there.....

        Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back yet, jeyedolt.

        We still do give the most in absolute terms. But as a percentage of GDP, or based on population, and donations per capita, we are among the least generous of the developed nations.

        Bottom line, I'm not ashamed of America -- far from it -- but this is not an area where there is a lot of fat to trim. Cutting aid is not a magical solution to our financial woes.
