Disaster funds should be spent at home

Posted: September 20, 2013 - 9:09am

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.

Let's evaluate Morrison's letters.

We can be thankful that Morrison hasn't any impact on actual public policy.

His regrettable personal thoughts and opinions have been shown to be small minded, narrow minded, and pitiably shortsighted.

His last letter showcased his acute xenophobia and blatant bigotry, here in his latest letter, that same xenophobia lies just under the surface.

Our country would not benefit from adopting such disgraceful posturing.

Non-stop global disasters as

Non-stop global disasters as well as here in America are increasing daily which reminds me of something I read about concerning the increase of Wars and rumor of wars, Famines, Earthquakes, Floods everywhere and how they will increase dramatically and more frequently with increased severity. America has suffered many such disasters nation wide this last decade and they do seem to be getting worse and those affected seem to be abandoned and left on their own to survive while we aid other peoples non-stop with absolutely no evidence of relief for those peoples.
My opinion is that there is a pretense of caring for peoples for the benefit of those in certain money making circles of governments. It's all about control and making people rich while pretending to care, when in reality not caring about humans is what these supposed relief aid programs actually are.
As the flood waters of Colorado rush onward towards Nebraska & Kansas and other states the flooding and wake of destruction will spread and the adage of never allow a crisis to go to waste will enable government to neglect aid to Americans and cause more dependence for said government, a dependence on something that will fail the peoples yet again.
It's not going to get better this Hope in human governance, and how can it when history, as well as present actions show it never has worked out well?
Buy rice and beans and try to be more independent and survival conscience I guess for all of us that reside here in the Ring of Fire, earthquake, tsunami zone and help, love your neighbor as your self while waiting for that trouble that will come again in one form or another.

First,

It's not an article, it's the ramblings of a sadly misinformed individual.

The statement that there is no aid for Americans in need is false.

That doesn't seem to stop you from attempting to inflate the false statement further.

No wonder you think the world is going to end any moment, you don't differentiate between what is real and what is simply someone else's imagination.

Americans do have a figment

Americans do have a figment of supposed disaster aid, but, if one would be honest FEMA is not, nor can it ever be an adequate means of helping people recover from total loss from the many more frequent national disasters that are devastating us. Revisit the many areas destroyed by fire, flood, earthquakes or wind storms and see the total lack of rebuilding things to what they were. It's not only reality of what's happening globally but nationally as well. Trillions of dollars are given to aid these affected places with no visual results.
Concerning judgment of earth by fire spoken of in 2 Peter 3; You have injected a supposed claim of my believing that the End of the world is an any day possibility. Your false injection is not my beliefs what so ever, nor has it ever been. In fact the End of the world is at least 1 thousand years off the way I read and understand the Holy scriptures given to mankind as a means of expressing in writing which shows a love for creation showing what has been and what shall be in hopes that ALL would come to God.
Now if you are making reference to my claims of the any day event for the End of this era, or dispensation of time we live in, then yes, it is an any day event in regard to what we all see promised for the end of this dispensation. Thanks for changing the topic by the way, but now back to this letter from Paul.
We see today from news that hundreds have died in Mexico and the orient due to Typhoons & Hurricanes which are classed as super storms. Will aid be given for these peoples? Yes it will, will it reach those in need? Probably not. As to whether my opinion or any one else's is due to imagination or not could also be applied to your opinion if one choices to do so by pointing out that your imagination seems to be that your the only one who is correct in thinking about reality.
I simply accept what you say as your rightful opinion and then must choice for my self as to believe or not believe what you say as truth or fictions or a combination of each twisted into words by you concerning your beliefs.
Keep on telling your self every things OK and every one is wrong but you, it's your free will choice to do so and I accept that as your right. We all must stand alone when the day comes to give an account for things we have done, or have not done in this life.
There is not a single person alive that can predict what the next second will be or bring in our lives if they are honest, but we can see from things that be that none of us are in total control of all things, if in fact any thing and that at any given moment we could have our lives changed for every by some sort of disaster either from natural or manmade troubles that are out of our control.
Have a GR8 day and thanks for the fancy words that I look up and learn.

Reality is objective,

...what you're supposing is subjective.

If you're learning about words, try to use what you learn.

If you're not able to make use of what you learn, the claim itself is questionable.

Or to paraphrase George Bush, 'Is you learning'?

There you have it. Ever

There you have it. Ever learning, but never able to acquire the truth from the wisdom of man. While here I am knowing the truth, yet never able to learn or acquire the wisdom of man.
What can I say other than you got me there. I feel like a walking disaster please send me money ASAP.

Breaking News folks about the

Breaking News folks about the relief program for those who lost everything due to hurricane sandy last year. FEMA will stop all funding for housing this Monday.
They probably need to send $Millions$ to aid victims in Pakistan after last weeks 7.7 and todays 6.8 quakes which killed hundreds. Or maybe to Mexico victims who got hit last week by a hurricane which also killed hundreds. Or maybe to East Asia which got hit by a super storm Typhoon this last week. Or just maybe to the flood victims of Colorado.
My point is to show that Paul is correct when he said that America suffers and is never rebuilt after natural disasters due to all the Billions sent else where to people that usually hate Americans. At warp speed these global as well as American disasters by now classified as Super Storms and Americans can't even get the aid to rebuild. BUT WE WILL ALL HAVE AFORDABLE INSURANCE SOON which will help all those who live on the streets.
All this not to mention the flooding Kenai river and 5000 acre swamp.

breaking news? if your only

breaking news? if your only source of information is by watching fox and listening to the idiot limbaugh, then you are truly one of the most UNIFORMED.

try to expand your mind by actually looking at the world view and the world news. then you might be able to state some facts instead of the hype that cable news spews and sheeple gobble up.

Breaking news back to you.

Breaking news back to you. There are more news than Fox news, but you seem to know what they show more than I do, now don't you.
Ever heard of the web or internet, or remote control for changing channels on Dish?
They allow one to view many GLOBAL NEWS sites. I do view Fox, but it is around #5 on my list for news. I do appreciate your confirmation of what I said, which what you must have watched on Fox and I got else where. As for listening to Limbaugh your long term memory has failed you once again as I've told you before I DO NOT LISTEN to him either, but as is the case with Fox, you also know a lot about what Limbaugh says. So where do you get your knowledge of news from now if it's not these two mentioned by you?
Please let me know if any more breaking news comes from Fox or Limbaugh.

You haven't provided any source,

...you haven't provided any links.

All you have is your unsprung imagination.

No one has provided you with any confirmation.

FEMA is not stopping housing assistance for Sandy victims.

You're posting falsehoods.

I see no reason to provide

I see no reason to provide links, I don't look up yours as I told you long ago, so I don't expect you to look up mine to only prove that which you already know if your as smart as you think you are. Get on the web or other Global news sites for up to date breaking news. Better yet check with Norseman he gets his info from Fox and Limbaugh.
Where you been all day any how, at church?

Hurricane Karen is in the

Hurricane Karen is in the Gulf and about to hit the coastal states and Gov. Jindal has declared a state of emergency due to this.
Odds are non of the coastal states will get any form of aid due to the DEMS shutdown of the Government.
This madness for shutting down the government has even spread to them trying to shut down Mt. Vernon and the Washington plantation. Problem is it belongs to the Mt. Vernon ladies and not to the govt. Any where they can spread their terror control, they are doing so to harm everyone, NO MATTER THE PARTY.
God help us ALL for OUR Choices we have made as a NATION and must now live with those choices void of any real Hope for any of us.
