Who fucking cares. Everyone seems to make a huge deal when tragedy strikes around the world but it's no big deal when it happens here at home.

really? 911 wasn't a big deal? Katrina wasn't a big deal? what tragedies have we had that matches this one in the number of deaths? why should we all become cold and hard hearted because a few are desensitized to others pain and heartaches? did you ever see the video footage of people in the UK with tears streaming down their faces because of our 911? grow up.

I am fully grown sir, thank you. I am tired of having to help the rest of the world when no one is ever willing to help us. Sending money for aid over seas when we have millions of unemployed people here who are sick and dieing. Charity starts at home my friend.

have you looked into this at all or are you just assuming because you don't hear about it on the news?

You forgot to mention that the U.S. borrowed money from China to help fund this "Save Haiti" effort.

Ah, I did leave that out didn't I.

My point is, lets worry about the USA for a change. Tragedies happen everyday, its unfortunate but WE as a nation have bigger problems right now.

I think you would say the same thing if something happened in us as long it was on the other side of the country and didn't effect your life.

i agree sending them a bunch of money that we don't have isn't a good idea, i was simply looking at the human suffering.

for all the whining pussies about how bad you feel for them: get on a plane and move there if you want to help them. then you can all sit around sucking each others dicks feeling sorry for yourself whilst you wait for someone to do something for you.

this includes all the hollywood fucksticks. they can arrange this benefit for some shithole 3rd world country but somehow cannot pull together to try and end homelessness here. or help with the families that have lost their job home and everything else and are living in tents or cars. fuck all them, our help is needed in another country more importantly.

major fucking recession and hard times here but we will direct our efforts elsewhere.

The US has the fattest "poor" people on earth. Can you really compare anything here to haiti pre or post earthquake?

You will never end homelessness and you will never give all the poor people jobs. Some people wont ever pull themselves together no matter how much you "help" them.

And seriously, you know families that have lost everything and are living in cars and tents? Cos if you do they done fucked up and it has nothing to do with a bad economy.

Thank you. so you feel that people here won't change no matter what, but haitians will above all odds change. I suppose the previous 30 billion we have sank into haiti was simply "start up capital" or perhaps "apology" or "good faith" money.

now it is serious. they have waited the necessary 30 years and are going to change because da earf go boom.

and what does it matter if it's their fault or not living in a car? you obviously don't care that some haitians prior to the quake were living in a car. in america what if a family had cancer and they lost everything because of medical bills?
the simple fact is you provide the same defeatest attitude towards people here in america. screw them they should be responsible. but when some 3rd world people have hardship you feel guilty and sad.

Really? You got that from what I wrote?

If you're living in a car for any reason you fucked up. And somehow if you did end up in a car that would be what friends and family are for. And if you were a decent person your friends and family would be willing to help you out. However if you were an asshole and/or known to be unreliable/drunk/drug addict you might have to stay in your car <== you fucked up. Before my wife and kid spent 2 cold nights in a car the kid would be warm and the wife and I would start rebuilding whatever it was we had lost.


As for me being a haitian lover, you are way on the defensive for some reason. Nowhere is ANYONE saying to give money/help to haiti and not to the US. But if youve ever been to a developing country you would recognize that the "poor" here in US are nothing like to poor there. In the US for the most part your life is what you make of it. In developing countries that is not the case.

And seriously what the hell is just about any country in the world going to be able to help US with? Katrina? GTFO. Thats the example of the people who wont help themselves no matter what you do for them. --A category whatever hurricane headed RIGHT for you, you live below sea level, the gov advises you to evacuate... what would you do?-- You cant help stupid

If you want my opinion I dont think we should "give them" a dime. If they want help we can help them build some bigger prisons to help their criminals die behind bars. Perhaps help them with a template for a criminal justice system. We can help them with volunteers from charity organizations who want to go over there to assist in rebuilding. Theres things "we" could do. "Me"? Our government is forcing me to donate, I dont have the time or money to give any more.
