Some of the hate America first crowd were indignant when President George Bush pledged the LARGEST contribution of ANY nation on the planet to help the tsunami victims. They tried to twist the generosity of the United States by claiming that countries like Norway were giving larger percentages of their GNP than the U.S. Talk about beating on the hand that feeds them.
Well, today President Bush is putting these losers to even greater shame as it was announced that the aid total would now be $350 million. That is a ten fold increase and STILL the largest total by far of any single country or combinations of 2 or 3 countries.
He announced today, that this would also not likely be the end of the aid.
`Our contributions will continue to be revised as the full effects of this terrible tragedy become clearer,''OUCH! Still want to bite that generous hand?
Of course he also said something that is sure to get the anti-Christian types in a uproar by adding:
``Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this epic disaster.''
Praying? HOW DARE HE!
CNN further is reporting that countries have also upped their aid:
France $57 million
Britain $95 million
Sweden $75.5 million
Spain $68 million (partly in loans)
So please, stop with the whining about how greedy the United States is. Keep it up and eventually we WILL take our ball and go home.
