What a enigmatic foreign aid policy is apparent here in the United States.

We will bomb a country in the name of humanity or defense and then supply weapons and ammunition to that country as long as they have oil or a supposed political philosophy akin to ours. Then at our cost we will send contractors to rebuild everything that was destroyed.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we are going broke. We have unemployment, porous borders, cities in decay, drug problems, border difficulties and a screaming deficit. How can this be?

My mother had a simple motto: “Be sure to clean your own house before you start to clean someone else’s.” Ya think?
