“Charity Begins at Home???”

Well, not as far as the United States government is concerned.

However, we, as Americans, are DEFINITELY the most giving people in the world, and it’s not even close.

Please see this earlier blog of mine from September 27, 2017 for a little perspective:

And the word “charity,” here, is probably not even the right word to use. What I’m referring to here is “taking care of your own,” and “America first.”

According to Bloomberg.com news, from January 11, 2022, “The U.S. has announced $308 million in new humanitarian assistance to help ease an urgent food and healthcare crisis in Taliban-led Afghanistan.”

Excuse me…, say what?

According to Bloomberg.com news, from January 11, 2022, “The U.S. has announced $308 million in new humanitarian assistance to help ease an urgent food and healthcare crisis in Taliban-led Afghanistan.”

Yes my friends…, our government, with our money…, well, actually with their unlimited credit card, which we are on the hook for, is giving over $300 million to the terrorist group that has killed and wounded hundreds and thousands of our soldiers, and then unceremoniously booted us out of the country, while these same wounded veterans, and the families of those who gave their lives, have to depend on charitable groups for financial support. It’s true that “truth is stranger than fiction.” It’s sadder as well.  

There are many of these wonderful organizations who raise money for the support of our veterans, like Tunnels to Towers, Wounded Warrior Project, Folds of Honor, Til Valhalla Project, and many more.

But the point is, our Veterans and their families should not have to depend on charity for their sacrifices. The government that sent them into harm’s way should now step up to the plate and make sure they and their families are now well taken care of.

No questions asked.

And that goes for other wonderful organization as well, like St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Shriner’s Hospital, the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), and many, many more.

Do you think any of the groups could have used any of the $300+ million that we gifted to a bunch of terrorists?

Do you think any of these groups could use any of the billions, and billions of dollars we hand-out to other unappreciative countries every year?

I mean, whose side is our government on anyway?
