I thought that with age came wisdom, but although I have aged, I do not understand.

We are subjected to cuts and concerns about our economy. Our education system has been forced to cut programs and our seniors live on Social Security payments that barely support life, yet we continue to send billions of dollars to other countries, including $1.3 billion annually to Egypt's military.

Does anyone else remember the saying, “Charity begins at home”?

I guess I don't understand economics because I don't understand borrowing from China and donating to others.

Can someone explain this to me?
