Uncivil Rights

A BLOG rife with wit, sarcasm, and the endless joy which comes from taunting the socialistic and unpatriotic liberal left. Logical thoughts and musings ONLY need reply...unless you're really, really funny. You have the Uncivil Right to be an IDIOT. "Give me LIBERTY, or give me DEATH!"

The Truth on Foreign Aid

I have read a lot about the "stingy" Americans. Too much in fact. So, for those from outside this country that reads this blogs, I have a few stories for you. I understand the media outside the U.S. The U.S. is bad, it is evil, they are lazy and don not care about others. WRONG! How about credit where credit is due.

Some overall facts on America's giving.

Wow, I thought American corporations were bad. Seems they give too.

Far from stingy.

Never mind the rank hypocrisy of receiving lectures on generosity from a representative of an organization that connived in Saddam Hussein's diversion of billions of dollars that was supposed to have been spent on feeding needy Iraqis. Quite apart from such considerations, Mr. Egeland is simply wrong. The U.S. government gave $2.4 billion in humanitarian relief last year -- 40% of the world's total.
