‘Caught With Our Hand in the Cookie Jar’ is an SCOM 342 (Argumentation and Advocacy) blog about the United States’ stance on intervening in domestic issues of other countries.  America has long and colored history of sticking our collective nose where it doesn’t belong and also of providing aid when necessary.  This commentary explores the validity and creditability of Uncle Sam’s actions in those foreign states.

    I think that this is a great issue to explore. My blog examines the homelessness crisis in America and argues that we should cut funding for foreign affairs versus implementing a 50% reduction for community service block grants. We need to take care of ourselves before we can help others. I propose that we reduce foreign affair spending then cutting funding for organizations and programs that have proved to help Americans. How can these organizations and programs continue to work if we don’t have enough money to fuel them? So I am interested to see how you analyze “Uncle Sam’s validity and credibility” for “sticking our collective nose” in foreign issues. In what specific areas should we cut funding? Where is most of our money going abroad?
