Disaster funds should be spent at home

Let’s evaluate our government. We have disasters happening almost every day in our beautiful country. Disasters are happening almost daily around the world and our government has ships, airplanes and everything ready to move in an instant to help every country in the world and has for many years. This is tax payer money and borrowed money to try to buy favors from most countries of the world. Did the poor people of these countries benefit from the money we sent? Absolutely not; only the rulers and rich people benefited. Right now we have one of the worst disasters after New Orleans, taking place right now in Colorado, we know that country quite well as we have relatives there. Let’s give a big eye on what our politicians in Washington do with this. So far, I don’t hear very much favorable talk coming from them. We were born in tornado country and this is not a tornado, it is doing damage beyond human belief. These people are losing everything. When I look at the few simple items hanging on the walls and the photo books full of memories, they cannot ever be replaced.

My personal thoughts and opinion are that all money the government has given to unfriendly countries should be used to repair the damages in our Good Old U.S.A. before another cent is sent.
