#1 It's criminal to send money to Haiti when we have crumbling infrastructure here...03-02-2010, 11:16 PM
I can't understand, other than the Liberal PC bullshit mindset, why we give a shit about rebuilding Haiti... It's infuriating!!! Haiti has always and will always be nothing more than a charity case.. They will never contribute anything to the world, and they will never repay any of the aid given them by us and other developed nations.. Our government should only spend our money on interests that will benefit America in some way, and propping Haiti absolutely will not... It was a shit hole before the disaster, and it will be a shit hole long after, no matter how many millions we sink into that cess pool because you can't escape culture... We should stop wasting money on this disaster beyond a firm time-table of basic humanitarian aid... After that, they should be on their own..

Just to make you feel a little better, every dime we send them is borrowed with interest and will be repaid by your children and their children!

Too many people riding on the wagon vs. people pushing the wagon to greener pastures.. When early settlers decided to go West for new lands, you helped push or pull the wagon.. Under only sever circumstances did you ever ride on the wagon being pulled by the group.. Today, there are more unsavory, perfectly viable workers riding on the wagon... Haiti, for one...Obama-if you're being run out of town, get out in front and pretend that it's a parade!!!

Locally they've been showing pictures of bridges that have 2 of the 4 lanes closed, due to poor infrastructure. Concrete has fallen on cars parked under main highways, near Busch Stadium. Our country is falling apart, literally.

As you know I try to base my views on what Jesus taught. To please him and to do my best to behave as he would have me is my ownly concern. He did not ask me to show mercy and kindness only to those who deserve it, only to those who in some way could do something to pay me back. I also work from the view that God is in control of everything and if money is being spent on Haiti then that is the Lord's will on the matter and who am I to tell Him what He should do?
Please don't shoot me

Too often our elected leaders are giving our money away to nations that will n ever, could never pay it back.. There is nothing at all that will ever be profitable about Haiti, yet Colin Powell says we need to rebuild it better than it was before... WHY!!?"?? They didn't build it better in the first place, so why should be build their country for them better than it was before???
It's no different than if you owned a restaurant and you had customers that were hungry but had no money.. Sure, it would feel good to give them a meal and satisfy their hunger, but if you continued to do that you'd be out of business.. It's time America started giving money only when there is the possibility of a return on investment.. We may owe China a lot of money, but if we ever demanded repayment for our philanthropy around the world and the countries actually ponied up, we'd be a rich nation...Obama-if you're being run out of town, get out in front and pretend that it's a parade!!!

The best gift we could give the world would be to get our country healthy again so that we can continue to give to the needy nations around the world, but we're sick now, and we're in no position to keep showering the world with free money that will never be paid back...
My favorite inspirational speaker, Jim Rohn, said it beautifully.. When it comes to helping others-your friends, your spouse, etc, he is of the philosophy, "I will take care of me for you if you will take care of you for me" ...Obama-if you're being run out of town, get out in front and pretend that it's a parade!!!
