There are earthquakes all over the world all the time. A recent one in China left alot of people the same as those in Haiti. This country has alot of it's own problems right now. California with the rains that will cause alot of mudslides. Children on the streets because their parents lost their jobs. People dying in a war leaving family members at home.
What is this country doing for THIS country??? Giving money away that we don't have. Send the military there to help out with search efforts....fine. But sending millions of dollars to help rebuild with everything that is going on in the country???......pointless.
Now as I said this probably came off as heartless and wrong, but I believe this country is more important than a 3rd world country that can never do anything in return except ask for more.
I TOTALLY agree!!!! Funny thing is, when Katrina hit the things we are seeing in Haiti happened here. I don't recall a huge global out pouring for the Katrina victims but every time there is a calamity else where in the world we are supposed to ante up and help. Sorry but I am not feeling it either......
