Much of foreign aid is pro quid pro Our country receives benefit for the "aid". Think of air and naval bases in strategic areas that is needed for security as one small example. Unstable regions seem to cost a LOT more to our interests when the blow up than it does to pay for aid. Of course, we see the epic failures, but overlook the successes.

Hold on a sec - if you start working you can't keep getting food stamps and free cell phones.

Retired in 2013 at age 33. Keeping busy reading, blogging, relaxing, gaming, and enjoying the outdoors with my wife and 3 kids (6, 11, and 13).
