    Not to pick on any country,, honestly,,, but....

    Do the people who sew the clothes in Sri Lanka, that are destined for market in the US, really expect displaced/laid off textile workers in the US to be generous in their relief donations???

    I guess it is all about balance, when the US was in its prime and its citizens had jobs, we were perhaps recognized for the place o go when you needed help. You being underdeveloped countries, etc..

    Now that so many of our citizens are out of work due to uncontrolled imports from the countries with "cheap labor", can it realisticaly be expected of the US to continue its benevolent practices??

    I don't think so, at least not to the scale of things as in days gone by.

    So, are you admitting that lefties like yourself are primarily fear based, spiteful, selfish, and cold hearted?

    What is the amount of "so many of our citizens" and how do you qualify that?
