Guest blog by The Lycan

Once again, I have a guest blog from the hubby.  Every now and then he gets an idea and decides to write up a blog about it.  Then I put it up on here for all to read.  I hope you enjoy it, he just loves to get comments on his thoughts!

The Misfortunate
        Our nation (The USA) is one of the best in the world.  However, we are one of most hypocritical nations when it comes to our poor, homeless, and sick.  Our government as well as the rest of us is doing very little to nothing to help our poor, homeless, and sick. 
I don’t want to hear, “What are you doing to help the poor, homeless, and sick?” or “How much did you donate to help the poor, homeless, and sick?”  That is irrelevant.  You are helping other nation’s poor, homeless, and sick not our own.  I am not saying that that is useless.  Since those governments can’t help themselves anyway.  I just don’t want to hear about it.  If it is about helping our own, then I would like to hear that.
Every commercial or advertisement that I have seen is to help some others poor, homeless, and sick on the other side of the world.  I have only seen one that helped our own poor, homeless, and sick The Salvation Army.  Sorry, but I am annoyed, irritated, and tired of seeing so many of all sorts to help poor, homeless, and sick elsewhere but our own.  I would love to see more of all sorts that helped only our own.
Everyone remembers the commercial of an American woman or man talking with heartfelt emotion to help poor, homeless, and sick Africans.  She or he is always telling you that you can help for just the spare change in your pocket.  My children always cry when that commercial comes on and so do I (when no one is looking.)  Where is that commercial or advertisement for our own nation?  I have never seen one at all let alone with so much emotion.  Before I will ever donate any amount to an Organization to help poor, homeless, and sick I want to see our government do more for our own.  That is what I want to see from my nation, but I may never see it.
We as a society are too arrogant, ignorant, and selfish to think of doing more for the welfare of our poor, homeless, and sick.  We all have been there and done that. It usually always starts with throwing your change and yelling, “Get a job you worthless bum!”  Go to New York, you can see this happen more than once a day.  With no regard for their feelings or how they became that way.  Some lost everything in a fire, while others could no longer find work. 
Then there are those who choose it because it was so easy.  All they had to do was look and act the part. These people are a disgrace to all the poor, homeless, and sick honest working people who lost everything; whether it be from a disaster, no work, or because they are a veteran whether injured or not.  Of all the poor, homeless, and sick in New York the majority are Veterans.  Now how do you feel about that?  We have some way to show respect for the ones who risk more than they should for everything we take for granted!
