There is help and places for those people to go if they choose. There are programs for people to work, if they choose. A lot of our homeless are homeles because they have mental issues and choose to be that way.

For someone who has an opinion about everything, you certainly are clueless.

In 2011, during one of the most devestating recessions in US history, the US gave Kenya $687.7 million. U.S. foreign aid to Kenya is spent on providing equipment and training to security forces, improving health care and fighting disease. It also funds efforts to combat poverty, promote democratic values and good governance, and for counter-terrorism efforts.

According to a little hand book from Economist called A Pocket World in Figures, Nigeria receives $6.4 billion in bilateral and multilateral aid, the second highest amount in the world (but three times less than first-place Iraq). Ethiopia, the world’s fifth leading beneficiary and Africa’s second, receives $1.9 billion. Sudan ranks next, as the world’s seventh highest, at $1.8 billion, right ahead of Congo-Kinshasa. A few “prosperous” Asian countries – China, India and then less well-to-do Pakistan – follow before Tanzania ($1.5 billion), Congo ($1.4 billion), Mozambique ($1.2 billion) and Uganda ($1.19).

Kenya itself lies at the world’s 24th largest aid recipient at $768 million.

how is this shameful for the US. you guys are voting for Uhuru Kenyatta. He has been charged with heinous crimes, accused of using a vast fortune to bankroll death squads that slaughtered women and children. His running mate also faces charges of crimes against humanity.

His opponent Raila Odinga is a puppet of the west and the hails from the same tribe as Obama's dad.

He has been handpicked by the US to protect American Interests. And now America wants to put sanctions against Kenya if Odinga doesn't win.
