One day Saden the bill for all of your meddling and thievery will come due.
When it does you'll be paying for it too, without consent I might add.

Seriously. There are possibly half a million people dead in an awful disaster, and we can't get 10 posts without politics being thrown around? Pretty pathetic fellas.

You guys are right, horrible tragedy that shouldn't be politicized. I've already donated $30 by texting 90999.

It's not that I don't care . . . . if they aren't Americans, I care less.

Re: Massive Earthquake Devastates Haiti

Could be half a million dead.

On the politics: having a failed state near us is bad. As a foreign policy issue, giving aid is a good idea.

On the moral issue: we are in a position to help these people, and almost no other country is in such a position. Some would argue that we have an out and out responsibility to help, in the same way one ought to help if you see a person collapse in front of you on the street. And even if it's not obligatory, it would be a good and right thing to do, in my opinion. I may not be able to buy an extra video game, but that may allow some unfortunate people to survive this disaster.

For the record.

You can donate 10$ to the Red Cross relief effort in Haiti by texting HAITI to 90999. It will show up on your phone bill.

I think the 500,000 are the lucky ones.

Re: Massive Earthquake Devastates Haiti

1999 Vargas mudslides - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . Very sad . Natural disasters are so much more destructive in the poorer countries ..... I hope that the other Island countries and South American nations pitch in . I also hope for the best of all of the survivors .

Re: Massive Earthquake Devastates Haiti

Good to see the relief effort put forth by all the countries that have offered their assistance in such troubled times. Will be interesting to see just how many will be there for the long haul because Haiti is going to need massive help for a long, long time. Their whole country is going to need rebuilding. Continue to pray for the relief and recovery effort, and all the people of Haiti.

The same reason I care less about you than I would my family, priority.

That's your opinion and you just contradicted it too. I don't see why we would give one bloody cent to Haiti or anyone else?

We sent aid to Iran when an earthquake killed people over there. Yet they persist in funding terrorism and blaming all of their problems on us.

When the freeways collapsed in Oakland I don't remember anyone giving a damn about dead and trapped Americans?

Do you know how many times the Marines have been deployed to Haiti and the Dominican Republic? It's a rat hole.
