So in all fairness I ask this question based on the fact that other than this earthquake Haiti hasnt seen much better days...
Really? When were you in Haiti to make this call? What's your frame of reference?
"Where was all this support, relief and good will for the people of Haiti from the beginning when they really needed it. If we really care as people, why then do we wait for tragedy??
Good point. If that's a solid argument for not donating one red penny, I don't know what is. Good going MPD, you just saved me $10 that I would have donated to Haiti.
What I am saying is Haiti has been a known sore thumb on the hand for many many decades and I dont believe you need to be asked 35 different ways to donate while on the way to the mailbox because of a natural disaster tragedy!
And upstate has been a known sore thumb on the hand for many many decades (ever since the eerie canal became obsolete and everyone up there obstinately refused to acknowledge it). So now you've got idiots like unshackleupstate begging for money, whining about shit being unfair, complaining that downstate lives better than they do, and imagining some sort of vast conspiracy to bury the state fair because they can't wrap their brains around the fact that people who live in the non-hick downstate parts of NY have better things to do than driving to the middle of god-forsaken west bum-fuck New York to drink colored milk and watch pigs race.
Where's your posts advocating that upstate is begging and crying for money? Where's the posts saying 'Upstate has been in bad shape for years, it's a little too late to ask for money now'? Where's the posts saying 'Upstate doesn't need to be begging for money in 35 different ways.'?
Where the fuck were three quarters of you assholes when they needed it 38 years ago...Ohhhh most of you were not even fucking born yet so how can you even have a clue what I am talking about!!!
Does that make you special somehow? Do you now have some sort of special bond with Haiti and a deeper understanding of what's going on down there? Where the fuck were you? Not in Haiti and not helping Haiti I'll wager. Which makes this point of your argument completely
invalid. Is everyone 38 and over magically an expert on Haiti and what they need? Cuz from where I'm sitting, you seem to know neither jack nor shit about what's going on.
