Hrm. You surprise the heck out of me, Sam. You are, right here, arguing that "housing", "food", and "medical attention" are basic human rights, and yet last time I knew you were basically against welfare, universal healthcare, and other such programs in our own country that are designed to give people in our OWN country these things. You're the guy who was happy in '96 when Pat Buchanan won the New Hampshire Primary--the same Pat Buchanan who would basically build a wall around the US and close off almost all forms of immigration.

Open your pocketbook, then. People are suffering and dying right in our very own country, on our own streets, because they don't have the basic needs of housing, food, and medical attention you would give these people from Afghanistan and yet seemingly deny them.
