[quote]Not my problem. In fact the government funding should be removed as well. What happens to the people of another country, while unfortunate is again...not my problem.[/quote] And that's where we differ and will never see eye to eye :lol: It may not primarily be our problem, but I believe...

Wearing a cross... Doesn't fit narrative oh no! Look, the difference between migrating to the US and Europe is that by the virtue of distance, we have [i]controlled[/i] migration. Our vetting process is the most thorough and time consuming one in the world. We don't have migrants from Africa and...

re: European Mission Work, Worthy Cause or a Scam? - Tigerbait46
In this particular instance, not a worthy cause, but there certainly are other organizations doing great work over there that aren't scams. Just like spending money on a product or service, it's important to do your homework before giving money. I'd also add that typically, donations given direc...

Refugees pay more in taxes than receive in welfare - Tigerbait46
