I just saw these people on tv asking for donations regarding hurricane relief. They have some big name people supporting and some big name singers too.

USA military budget 2016 - $611B
USA space exploration budget 2016 - $20B

The USA is supposed to be the richest country in the world and should be more than able and willing to amply support all of it's citizens affected in disasters. It's about the cost of a couple fighter jets instead of having artistes singing and begging on tv.

Sorry USA I gave my donation $ to the CDEMA which is a more needy cause.... you can afford it!!! sad

BTW those who disagree can go to https://handinhand2017.com/ and show their generosity

The late Canadian PM Pierre Trudeau took money from the military budget to build the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa.

The Architect was Douglas Cardinal (Born of Métis Blackfoot/Kainai,)

I don't know who you are referring to but I stated my opinion in the OP and also posted the link to donate for those who disagreed with me. No hate there....
