i have nothing good to add except i had alot of good laughs from you people. i personally think helping haiti is a bunch of shit as well mainly because were still cleaning up after Katrina for christ sake. i don't see dipass obama sending relief funds down there anymore. as selfish as it sounds we need to help ourselves before we run this country into the ground from being over generous to others. it's the fucking christian way to do things. "help others before you help yourself". bullshit!!

a good analogy for all of this is say you have a table with 4 good legs. you have another table which has 1 broken leg. if you take one from the good table to help the broken table you have just weakened the good table by 25%

I honestly think that we could do both very easily if people were to get off the Lazy train that we're in in this country. To be honest, I think the US has enough of a bad rap for being "Americans" and we don't need any more reason for the rest of the world to hate us. A vast majority do because of the money we squander in our country.

Being lazy about giving to those in need is bullshit.
The issue is corruption. People are tired giving money that is wasted by government crooks.

Nothing we will or can do will change the way other countries view the U.S.
They are jealous of the success America has achieved by free markets. Proving that their socialistic idea's are a complete failure.

A free people will always win. Even as our freedoms are being stripped from us every day, we are still better.
United States citizens are the most giving people in the world.

P.S. I don't give a flying fukc what the French have to say in regards to the latest comments they have made about us. How dare they say one damn negative word about America.

And Hugo Chavez is flapping his big commie mouth about us? He sent ONE fucking plane so far. I hope he dies a slow death.
Hollywood and also go straight to hell.

Sorry if some of the things I've said are just re posts, I haven't read everyone's comments.

This is True, I think it's part of our National Identity and alot of people on this thread have shown disdain for it. I'm not saying millions of our tax dollars should go there but, I think that it's our responsibility as members of this great nation to help others who are less fortunate. I'm also not saying we should sell our all our stuff and move there (although, I wouldn't mind if that's where I'm supposed to be) but to completely say Screw Haiti and keep all the money you have to your self is what I had an issue with.

You missed the point, I agree with you guys that our Tax money shouldn't go. ANY of it. Or did you want me to use the Exact amount we've given?

My point was that having an attitude of "Why help them when they don't help us" is not right. Maybe I care about other countries more but I think it's our job as Americans to take care of less fortunate Countries. The "hard working Individuals" that built this country would agree. They understood that with the freedoms and blessing we have we also have a responsibility to take care of people in lower situations then us. Both nationally and Globally. This statement has nothing to do with Government money or money at all, It's about an Attitude that is, IMO, UnAmerican.

Normally we bomb them into the stone age before we rebuild (build?) their country.
Look at all the money we saved on the bombs we didn't drop.

My two brothers work for a tent company in Sarasota Florida. The company just put in bids to open up a "tent city". Whoever the funding is through, is weighing two options. One, all the supplies are shipped to Hati and a crew members go to Hati to set them up. Option two is to set the tents up in Florida and send the Hatians over.
