    What has happened to graciousness and gratitude in our World? All you see on the News is people whining & complaining about Aid being too slowly delivered to these nations suffering from natural disasters. But what about all the generous $Billions in Aid that is being given to these nations? Who do people think pay for this Aid? It's the hard-working Taxpayers from many Nations all over the World who pay for these $Billions in Aid. These $Billions don't just magically appear. It's real people who are giving their money to help. I still haven't seen nations like Indonesia or North Korea ever give an official Thank You for all the Aid that has been given to them over the years. My God,all we get from North Korea is more missile tests and threats of Nuclear Annihilation.

    So how did we come to this? Why so many ingrates? Everyone just wants to take take take but never express gratitude. Just a little Thank You once and awhile really would go a long way. All we seem to get is more whining & complaining though. I guess i do blame the Left Wingers for this. They have created and encouraged an attitude of 'Entitlement.' Most around the World now just assume they're entitled to their $Billions in Aid and therefore don't ever have to express gratitude for it. Real people pay for this Aid though and certainly deserve some respect & gratitude. Instead all they receive is a big slap in the face. I do believe the Left Wingers have encouraged this mentality. No one is entitled to anything. Good people give Aid to these people in need but no one is entitled to it. So for once i would like to see these nations publicly give thanks to those who have helped them in their time of need. More whining & complaining doesn't exactly encourage more people to help anyway. Just a little thanks would be nice. So how bout it North Korea,Africa,Haiti,and Indonesia?

    A simple Thank You really can go a long way. I just wish these Governments would express this once and awhile.

    They did. Just not to you personally. Idiot.

    Oh.... and giving of itself is enough. We don't do it so the world can say 'thanks'. Idiot.

    I haven't seen any official Government announcements of thanks especially from nations like North Korea and Indonesia. I hear a lot of whining & complaining but i hear very little thanks. No one is entitled to these $Billions in Aid. Good people give these $Billions to help. They deserve much more than constant whining & complaining. Just a little gratitude. That's all i'm asking.

    Why would they be grateful to a wingnut like you who doesn't want the US to give them anything? That's like expecting black people to thank the South for freeing them

    He has a point...Especially in light of all this "civil discourse" we're all supposed to be engaging in.

    Come to think of it, when has the American taxpayer been thanked for all the money they've had expropriated from them, for the funding of the socialistic welfare state?

    There is usually a protocol that is followed. A government thanks another government. Given the amount of aid we give to other countries, I think it would get a tad tiresome for Obama to say "Hey America, XXXXX says thanks". He'd be doing it every day. And then LibNow would whine about who we're giving it to and why, and what they have done to 'deserve' it, blah blah blah.

    Yeah, well, Barry-O went on an international apology tour, so maybe we could get a little love in return?
