I thought you were funny. And I agree, humor helps lighten the mood.

People, lighten up, it won't help if you're flaming someone who's trying to help..... in his own way.

I didn't bother responding to the earthquake thread, there was nothing more to be said that actually mattered....same with the SW dbag thread. Get over it people.

I thought it was funny...I know you genuinely didn't mean any harm by it. I mean, we all know this happened because Haiti sold their soul to the devil to gain independence from the French, right? JK...fucking Pat Robertson.

But on the real, everyone took offense as if they were so concerned for Haiti. Did any of you do anything to better the situation? Who volunteered there time or money after yesterday/today's news? I'm more offended by those who act like they care, but haven't done shit.

Now the hypocrisy...I haven't donated any of my resources yet. But I think I probably will tomorrow. And to those who were offended, if you did donate resources I apologize now I'm not trying to pass judgment; just making a valid point.

Burrito, Like I said, I am so with you on your points about how Capitalism is a cancer on the planet. If Haiti had oil, then you can dam sure well bet, the world at large would have been pouring a lot more into it. The fact that these are black people without any natural resources the globalists and the World Bank and IMF want, means they are a forgotten people. The UN, to it`s credit has been pouring quite a lot into Haiti in the way of humanitarian aid, even long before the hurricanes that ravaged them. The UN has also led the fight against the runaway aids epidemic in Haiti. Sadly, Capitalism rears it`s ugly head even in such a dismally poor nation. The leadership of Haiti from the government down to the local police is staggeringly corrupt and the take everything they can and leave the people with nothing.

Under Democratic leadership, America has tried at least given a token effort. President Clinton sent in the US military back in 1993. Granted it was to enforce sanctions against the corrupt Haiti regime, but while in theater, we engaged in a lot of humanitarian missions for which the Republicans got butthurt over.

Lundington Daily News - Google News Archive Search

The problem in Haiti is so similar to the issues concerning America`s role in the African Continent. We are between a rock and a hard place. We can only do so much without "regime changes" and I am so against the Bush Doctrine of interfering in a sovereign nation`s issues. As much as it sucks, we do not have the right to barge in into every country that we feel is being run poorly. With some concept of a "Prime Directive" of non interference, we are limited as is the rest of the world.

Some people are just hypocritical bastards as you pointed out, but most are not and there are real international treaty and sovereignty issues the do legitimately prevent us and the U.N form doing more.

Do I wish more was being for the people of Haiti and other nations in times where disasters are not occurring? hell yes. Do I see it is always possible? Sadly, no. All we can do in some instances is try to help the people on the street and not allow their corrupt governments to take the aid to buy weapons or drugs or horde it. In times of disaster, there is an opportunity to demonstrate the benefits of being part of an international community where the developed nations help bring the undeveloped into the fold. When the people see this, it undermines corrupt governments in the long run.

Personally I am very pleased with the international response and how America seems to be once again in the lead when it comes to things like this. While I have many disappointments in President Obama`s performance, I am very impressed with his leadership in this crisis and I think the entire international community has a better, more cooperative vibe as a result of his leadership. It is a stark contrast to the last 8 years......


World Socialism is the ultimate answer to the things you and I are disgusted by in the world. It is high time that humanity understands that the needs of the many do in fact outweigh the needs of the few. The individual is only as strong as the society which allows him or her to succeed and I sick of Capitalists taking and never giving back.
Awesome man! I'm sending something today too.

if you dont have any money you can always donate a bit of time and give blood ... the red cross is way down on my list a faves BUT if you donate blood they are the place to do it. the same widespread infrastructure that sucks their cash donations and diverts needed funds works in your favor when giving blood ... who knows the blood you give today may be used tomorrow in an operation in a much needed place.
