Many thousands of people are dieing
Thousands die everyday, that is what we do.everyone dies. natual selection. what i am saying is when there is no money to fuel the jets and bring food and supplies, then what will happen? the people will deal with it on their own, and they will survive.

Nope, they won't.

The USA is the most generous nation in the world. We will be there for them.

If ithappened here, we would want help too. We should all be donating our spare change to the rescue and recovery efforts. I don't think we should give them a shiny new country. But, we absolutely should be helping with what we can.
Hello

1stPlace, per your above posted entry, I couldn't agree with you more. It seems so easy to pass moral judgement concerning the fait of others even when the shoes of natural disaster are not on our own feet.

Thanks
Loren

Why do we allow homeless people in this country to exist? Why don't we come to their rescue?

Why do we allow homeless people in this country to exist
Most of them choose to be that way. You make your life what it is period. You want things home car toys you work for it. You want to lay around drink do drugs not work be lazy you end up like that. Pretty simple if you ask me. But it seems a few cant understnad the simple concepts of that. You want it yo work for it. I myself am tired of others leaching off of my back and others backs becasue they would rather collect welfare and gov handouts. Lots of ways to fix things in this country but first you got to get the ones who feel they are owed to understand they are not owed anything. drop all the welfare crap etc get rid of the ilegals etc list goes on will it ever happen nope not in my life time or my grandkids lifetime. We need to take care of our own here at home fix our borders out gov our people and not worry about what is going on in other countrys and bailing them out everytime nature farts or has a belly ache and causes some kind of diaster. when it happens here we take care of our selves no one comes to our aid. Should we help them hell no not after all thier whining and complaining. they want thier loved ones dug out well start digging got to do thier part too instead of just sitting around complaining. entitilment seems to be a way of life for these people and lots of people here too.

Are you saying that it's time to repay Hati for all of the help that they sent during Katrina? Or wasn't the billions we sent to their socialist government enough to help them?
This is just another example of a country destroyed by socialism (like Louisana), the earthquake just finished them off.

My brother has been playing around with ultrasonic recording of bats. Told me about an intresting thing that happened one evening. He played back a distress call, and guess what? Dozens of bats showed up in an instant to see if they could help. Flying rodents have more class than some of you.

I have no problem helping productive people if they want to be helped, not taken care of, there's a big difference. Mutt, I do agree with you as far as not helping the deadbeats, I have no problem watching them suffer and really don't care. I'm sure all the people in Hatie are not bums, they got hit by something that no one can prepare for so I have no problem helping them out but I do believe its NOT the job of our government. If anyone wants to help then they should do so in their own way, not because our gov forces us to.

I don't think that the people of Haiti are deadbeats just their crooked, socialist government! The people there are screwed, just like we are going to be.
We ahould help them as long as we are still able.

I would be willing to bet the bats that showed up, were not there to help,but rather to get a free meal.

News flash...Hugo Chavez apparently thinks the US used this disaster as a ruse to invade Haiti...Points up just how stupid a socialist can be, doesn't it...
Haitians being GIVEN biscotti by an Italian relief organization riot when they misread the manufacture date as the expiration date...Looks like they weren't the sharpest knives in the drawer, either.
Wyclef Jean (who is Haitian) is under investigation by the IRS for misappropriation of funds from his relief fund...for Haiti.

People wonder why I am a misanthrope.....

Just curious as to what either of the above posts have to do with providing help/relief efforts to Haiti, regarding the devastation brought on by the earthquake. Should assistance to the people of Haiti, affected by the quake, be cutoff due to the implied lack of intelligence?

And/or should people not donate efforts to Haiti due to Jean's alleged violations stemming from misappropriation of funds from his relief fund?

Just curious

Loren,
Catch up on the current news my friend. Food was given, then trampled by the brilliant mobs because they thought it was "out of date". Hmmmm.....the date was the manufactures date, not the expiration date. AND, I can just see how many people are going to get busted for stealing money from relief funds, and I'll bet a bunch are Haitians.
I know many Haitians, have worked with them on a daily basis. They seem like decent fellas, but never turn your back on them and never leave anything of value laying around. Nothing you are about to see happen down there will surprise me. They'd better put marshall law into effect right now, before it's too late. Just watch....

If there is a hell
A lot of these third world folks are already in it,i dont think many of us western guys will ever understand unless you are born to it.It looks truly horrendus down there.How would we cope in similar circumstances if there were no food water or medical services and your family was buried or dying in front of you.Would there be chaos and anger?Things are bound to get ugly.

That Aristide Voodoo socialism Santaria stuff has not served them very well.

They voted for the socialists who promised them everything, and attacked business leaders (Aristide called for business people to be "necklaced" and that is why the military threw him out, only to be reinstated by Clinton by force).

They voted for the lifestyle they received. Many here vote similarly.

I do not disagree with sending them help, that is who we are. No, they do not remember and give us the credit we deserve. Instead they wear Che T-shirts.

Hell on earth
The way i look at it,is if you are extremely poor(probably an understatement)uneducated in a western sense and some clever politician came along and promised you a far better way of life,what would you do.Probably take a chance i am betting.If you live in hell,anyway out is preferable i would imagine.I bet half the population do not understand the politics let alone the meaning of socialism.I.M.H.O being human is about showing some humanity.No one deserves this.

Nor would I ...I simply reported what has been divulged on our "media"...My point being that many humans will make a disaster worse, either through greed or stupidity..If someone can effectively refute that, I'm all ears.
