    How about the Gov't spending (FEMA) in the Southeast, or South West?

Many people do so, out of a greater number that don't get the breaks like, mentoring, a stable family life, support systems at pre-K, Kindergarten, Elementary and High school or a Father figure, and religious values.

    Sad to say, some of those very same representatives have constituents feeling those circumstances. They are apparently saying they' ll turn their backs on them.
    LOL You noticed that too? Privately I think that same exact thing myself all the time.

    No I dont think they're entirely guilty, we already pay the money for these programs but in that case they need to be more reliable.

    Re: Should Congress Fund Disaster Aid for Northeast

    I've got to ask the naysayers a question here.

    What exactly do you think happens when major natural disasters happen? Do you really think that they just affect the area that the disaster happens in?

    Government should not be in the business of charity. As I said before, helping each other is the job of the community.

    That seems similar to the question people ask naysayers on many of these kind of things..

    What happens if people don't have food?
    What happens if people go without healthcare?
    What happens if people are without living wage?
    What happens if people don't have a home?
    What happens if people don't have an education?
    What happens if people don't have a cell phone?
    ....
    ....
    ....
    ....
    continue on until you run out of things one can have..

    A country is nothing more than one big community. Communities are not just small villiages ya know.

    You asked two questions and neither of which deserve an answer.
