AGREED.

We can't take care of ourselves, why bother taking care of the REST of the world?

I will be flamed for this but....

I agree to an extent with you guys but also would like to say that the reason the US helps out other countries is because we're being the "better country". So what if people don't help us when we have Disaster, It's our responsibility to help other people out and that SHOULDN'T rely on whether they help us out or not.

Our country is struggling with money, that is no doubt. I agree that the amount that is being sent is not worth it, but I don't agree with the idea that we should help our selves before we help some one else. That's just selfish. Plain and Simple.

Our country is known for being a country that will help out because that's one of the ideas that has been engrained in our minds and I'm glad it has. I just wish more people would act on it other then in Disaster situations. Even though we have all this debt, all this unemployment, a large majority of the Planet would Kill to live the way we do. Yet we complain about it.

good. I have contacted the red cross. there will be a truck there shortly to take all of your possessions, money, food, clothes, etc. from you and your family. there is no reason why you should maintain your way of life whilst someone in haiti lives in squalor. to be fair you will need to live in squalor as well. you should help others before you help yourself.

futhermore I decree that everyone here go to his house and help themselves to whatever they want because he needs to help us before he helps himself.

This is probably the best post I've ever read. I agree with this completely.

And when i visited the Dominican Republic for vacation a few years back we Americans "weren't allowed" in Haiti unless it was a mission...

I feel bad for the citizens there, but say screw the administration there. How about we now own a piece of the island for our efforts?
I can see a "Vegas in the Carribean" theme...

I think it is the right thing to o offering some help, just the like the rest of the world, but this is getting to be to much.

We will be there for a long time, and spending money that we don't have.

All this money that will be "donated", will never do what it was intended for.

There will be political red tape, and so-on.


Once the "rescue" operation is done, send home the military and let the U.N take Over

Anything I have that I don't NEED, they can have. I have all sorts of things that I don't need to survive, or even live a decent life. What I was getting at is that The attitude of why help them if they don't help us is Selfish. You can't argue with that. Sure, Let's make sure to take care of our selves with our Government money, I think that should be our first priority. However, the doesn't excuse our responsibility as a World power to other Nations that are less fortunate.

The US has been blessed with Wealth and all we have to show for it is one of the largest Deficits in the world. IMO, we had our chance to be a even better nation but didn't. The reason being that we are selfish people that look out for #1 before anybody else. That kind of Thought process is what has gotten us to where we are right now.

Banks thought "If this person takes out a loan that I know they can't pay off I make money"...They thought of I.

People Thought "I can take out this loan and it's not my fault if I default because the bank shouldn't have given me the money in the first place". They thought about what THEY could get and how they could blame Others about thier poor choices. Another instance of selfishness.

I'm not saying this applies to everyone, But it's pretty darn close to the majority (me included) of people in this country.

Also, I would have no problem if they took all my stuff, I don't need it. Most of it was free from friends and family. They couldn't have my house because I live in a low income apartment. I don't own it. I have very little and would have no problem giving it up. how bout you?

I pay all my bills. I have no Debt. I'm not as far from you as you think. I'm just saying, the attitude is Crap and Hypocritical. It's why our country is where it's at. We may be number one now but that's because of our past, not our future.

You are a world away from me dude. We are slipping from the number one spot because we are worrying too much about other people first. We need to take care of our own problems before we worry about a bunch of poor jungle bunnies on a island. We already own their resources. Please keep crying on behalf of the worlds poor, that way when realists like me use them for slave labor, take their resorces and leave them with the ruins we can point at you and say "look, we are not all bad men."

Yeah, I said Blessed, Not in a Biblical Way. Blessed can refer to something out side of Religion. Our country was founded on people who worked thier butts off and that is no longer the case. People realized the blessing (remember, not in a God way) of being able to work for thier stuff. Now there are a select few that share that mindset and rest think they deserve everything. THE DON'T. Also, most of those people who worked thier butts off had an idea of helping other people out with what they were blessed with. Seems that idea has gone south as well.

Yeah because he was looking out for Number one, Thanks for proving my point. Our country is full of People who think they're entitled to a good life with out working for it. Which, IMO, is a very selfish view because the money has to come from somewhere. With that Attitude is the thought that if people aren't living a good life they did something wrong. Which is also selfish and just plain foolish to believe.

You're right, why would I want to be close to where you're at.

I'd much rather be a Slave with people that can appreciate what they have then a "bad guy" that has money and wealth. I can Guarantee that most of the Haitians have more happiness and joy then any body in this argument. I know this because I've been to impoverish countries and came back thinking "Why aren't Americans that happy?". If we were to actually show we cared and started living that way our country would become the best it's ever been. As of right now, the ideal of "me" rules our country and the people that perpetuate that idea are killing our future as a respected world power.
