The World Body Should Go to OPEC Countries for Aid to Poor

While the liberals focus on record profits from big oil companies, they are overlooking the real fat cats who are making money hand over fist. The OPEC partner countries have been given a free pass by the world. While the US is the most generous country in the world, we still are accused of not giving enough to the world poor. It does not matter how many billions the US gives for humanitarian aid, through the US government and through direct charitable giving, the world acts as if we give nothing.

It is time for the critics to turn their eyes on the Foreign Big Oil to cough up funds for the world's poor. It is time for Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Iran to buy food for Ethiopia, Somalia, Haiti and other poverty zones. It is time for them to donate a few billion to help with Africa's AIDS crisis.

Yet we all know these words will not likely see in print in a major publication. They only have such words for the whipping boy of the world: the US. Obscene profits are only evil for an American corporation.

    Saudi Arabia is currently investing in its own infrastructure at a rate not seen since the Marshall Plan post WWII. Over 3/5 of the labor pool are of nationalities outside the Middle East. For its size and one dimensional oil economy, that's startling. Greatness comes from vision, the ability to imagine a world where change is a constant, not a world where the best we ever were is some place 20 years ago all dressed up in our heads. Name ONE great American project/vision currently going on that does not involve someone ending up dead. That's the difference between a conservative and a liberal. Liberals break the chains of the oppressed and put men on the moon. Conservatives wring their hands about a couple of queers being able to have a legal will.
