Wherein I finally get political

I saw this pop up recently in my FaceBook timeline:

"Doesn't make much sense, does it??: Homeless go without eating. Elderly go without needed medicines. Mentally ill go without treatment. Troops go without proper equipment. Veterans go without benefits that were promised. Yet we donate billions to other countries before helping our own first. 1% will re-post and 99% won't. Have the guts to re-post this. I KNOW I'm in the 1%! ♥"

I normally ignore these, but I felt inspired to respond to this. And yes, I work for a company that does International Development, so you could consider me biased, but I'm a programmer and I can program anywhere, so this opinion is only biased to a point. I'd like to think it's a relatively informed opinion.
