I agree with you guys! As a American soldier myself this is a crock of crap! We blow up a city and end up rebuilding it!!!???? Makes no sense to me! There is one of our biggest problems. We run to rescue alot of others, but damn when we need help, everybody mostly just says nope we don't wanna get involved. You know why? Cuz there smarter than the president lmao! If they get involved then they are risking themselves getting attacked next. Smart guys that don't even speak english right there! Now we run to haiti or wherever. This is non-sense. We start funds for other countries and not very many do it for us, if any. I think I'm righteously reserved to speak from my point. I was in the Army National Guard, but I got out because they wouldn't give me a interstate transfer and had me running to another state every month for over a year and spending more money than what I made. Well for all its worth, I actually ended up investing money to wear the uniform and fight for our country.

Remember though, if the deductions you want to take are less than the Standard Deductions, don't do it. You end up screwing yourself that way.

I've been to New Orleans to rebuild. They are done Rebuilding. They are waiting for people to get fed up without over homes leave. That state takes the land combines lots and builds huge mansions. Yeah the celebrities are moving to N.O. but not to show support because they are steal peoples homes so very nice of them. I'd spit in their faces.

You know, our country has never experienced an event so catastrophic that we ourselves were not able to handle. Other countries though(like Haiti) have. This is why we are helping them.

If something were to happen to us of the same magnitude, I'm sure we would receive aid.

Because that country is in worse condition then ours. Even though we're in debt we can still afford to help. They can't even help themselves right now.

Couldn't have said better myself! gotta take of yourself first ,then & ony then can you help others. I haven't worked for a while. Could use a job. Fl. 25% unemployment. Citrus county 13.5%. you do the math.

To be honest, most of the help we are giving them is coming from private citizens and organizations funded by citizens. Our government is really not helping that much. The only help that our government is giving them that I've seen is our Navy boating out the refugees.

I understand that people need jobs right now, but I know I can't help you with that. I can however, help Haiti by donating money for food, supplies, etc.
