The real story here is that some of the world responded and thier offers were refused.
    Yes, but Mexico is what I like to call a "Scam-ocracy" These other countries love the weakening dollar, and will want something in return for their "good deeds". I dont think there are many that really sympathize with anything bad that happens here.

      Sit tight because in a few years new technologies will come out that we wont need oil or gasoline anymore. Hybrids that run off ethanol, biodiesel, and oh yes.. the electric car.. just to name a few.
      Maybe not such a good idea. Local pizzaria owner was bitching the cost of flour has tripled in the past year. Id rather eat the grain than power my car with it, especially when theres pleanty of oil sitting right under our feet.

          They did help and are wrong. If they did'nt help they would be wrong. Sounds like a can't win.

            Ok,I do remember Mexico's help.Maybe I thought it was reserves from New Mexico,But Ill take your word.But I still don`t think the USA should offer help to almost every country and aid when we got major problems on our own.

            • It was'nt just Mexico.We had offers from alot of countries but the US bungled. It became a big deal during Katrina because we were unprepared to accept and distribute the assistance.

              I think we should give our people aid before anyone else but giving humanitarian aid is part of what makes the United States the greatest nation in the world. IMO.

              • Our gas went up here again over night. This time the jump was over .10 to 3.69 a gallon and that's for the cheap stuff.
