So how much are we going to give Haiti?

I really can't stand when a natural disaster happens. We go out of our way to spend millions on their relief aid and no other country tries to even come close to match it. There are many countries that can easily match it but we're the stupid ones that have to top everyone so we keep them on our sides.

I really mean no offense to anyone from any country that has received aid from the US. I just really hate to see people walking the streets here with nowhere to live when we're handing money to other countries.

Just ranting. It happens all too often. The way Obama just hand sout money, we'll make them the second richest nation in the western hemisphere.


A tropical island and they are the poorest around. WTF!!! Ditch the government and start fresh.

Re: So how much are we going to give Haiti?

Yeah but, society made them that way. With our high priced lifestyls and complicated stuff like taxes, many are scared of it all. We could use some of the money we use for the aid to actually educate and help our own. We could at least try.

I guarantee though that the majority would love a nice warm bed and a meal of their own.

I don't have the tell all answer or I'd be running for some position myself. It just seems pretty straight forward and obvious that we can do SOMETHING better.

Everyone just asks America for a handout only to receive it and we have our own doing it right here without sufficient help.

Re: So how much are we going to give Haiti?

i hear you dave, i know what your saying. I think its great to help them, but right now i dont think we are in any position to do that. Say something like were to happen to us, who would step forward to give us free handouts?

Re: So how much are we going to give Haiti?

I am with you Dave. Why not use that money to pay down our own governments debt and be able to decrease taxes etc. I spent 3 months in Haiti on a tour (kind of an aid to civil power) in '04 and i can say first hand that place is a shit hole, and they have made it that way. the beaches are beautiful in some places but with a lack of government control among other things the gangs run the cities. it's just a damn shame.

Re: So how much are we going to give Haiti?

I really don't mean to sound mean or selfish. I love helping others. I do well with what I have. I just hate seeing many guys on our own corners with the "need help" signs all over. I can only carry so much money to hand out. Then I have to give more to my government only to have them hand it out to someone else. Seems like we're being taken from the inside.

Re: So how much are we going to give Haiti?

Tell ya now its gonna piss me off !! I feel a rant comming !!!

Our country has went to shit and we still continue to hemorrhage money out to everyone !!

YES !! It sucks they had a earthquake, a big one no less but we have our own issues right now. I look at it like this... you dont take the neighbor kids out to dinner when you cant afford to feed your own kids.

as we all know The government can NOT give to someone what they have NOT taken from someone else (us).

Me (and many other Americans) being the ones taken from it pisses me off we have NO say in the matter of who gets OUR money!!! we are gonna take Haiti out to dinner when 10% of our family is unemployed and the rest is in bad shape at the moment.

Dont get me wrong Im not a dick, I have NO issues taking Haiti out to dinner when my family is working, half of them on overtime and everyone has a pocket full of cash.

Re: So how much are we going to give Haiti?

Hmmm. Looks like we're giving them the shirts off our backs....


"The Caribbean nation of 9 million is a former French colony and the world's oldest black republic, founded by freed slaves following a revolt that led to independence in 1804. " Taken from the MSN.com fact file.


The president said, "The people of Haiti will have the full support of the United States in the urgent effort to rescue those trapped beneath the rubble and to deliver the humanitarian relief — the food, water and medicine — that Haitians will need in the coming days".

If it were to end with our aid as listed in that statement, I'd feel good about our country helping out but, we'll help rebuild homes and hotels and businesses and more.
