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.
Bro, seriously? Has it come to this?

Yeah, I was more comfortable doing it online than via text. Not sure why, but I guess that method has become the "old fashioned" way for me as well.

That was the first time I ever done anything like that of donating through text...it was so easy. Very cool, but I can understand any hesitancy with the method...

Wrong + Wrong != Right

I think Haiti is the poorest country in the entire world. My buddy went there to build houses, and he said there were dead people in the street everywhere.

Re: Massive Earthquake Devastates Haiti

Don't hate on me. I don't want those people to suffer but I'm not God. I wouldn't wish that kind of suffering on anyone. All I'm saying is charity should start at home, employment too, but that's another thread.

No hate, frankly I could care less what someone else gives or doesn't give. I actually kinda feel bad for ya, but that's another thread.

A LOT different. We had better means than any other nation to rescue those trapped Americans. I'm sure plenty of people around the world cared about the people that were hurt and killed in the Bay Area that day.

The fact that Haiti is a "rat hole" in your words is part of the reason those people need our help. It's the poorest country in the western hemisphere.

Obviously everyone here would be more upset if this tragedy occurred on American soil, but that takes nothing away from the fact that millions of people who were already suffering from extreme poverty are now basically in hell. We have the means to help, and we should.

Fine . . . . You all want to be all Christian and save the world, go ahead. If that makes you feel better about yourselves, so be it. Haiti is the poorest country in the hemisphere for a reason. You're right, Haiti isn't a rat hole. All of the rats welled up a bus and floated away from there a long time ago. Half of those people are already going to where they're going. All of the tears and money isn't going to help them.

They send in the Marines in to all of these countries everytime something happens. When I was in they were sent to the Dominican Republic and El Salvador. Yeah, they love us when we show up with a free meal and some meds, but when their bellies are full it's, "fuk-a-U-Yankae-Bouy". Somehow that doesn't make it to CNN.
