    Something about that iron fisted way of ruling and crushing dissenting opinions really appeals to the Libtards.

    I was working in Hati installing a telephone switching office - it was OK at the time, people were nice and things were cheap.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Especially considering that this idiot said that they didn't know how things were under the Duvalier's. I think it's time to ban this dick.

    That and the fact he can't spell Haiti correctly are dead giveaways... Any more yarns you care to spin, Yukon?

    No doubt the lives of those nice people were held as cheaply by their government as the trinkets that you purchased with US or Canadian dollars. The Duvaliers were corrupt kleptocrats, and if they seemed marginally less evil than Jean-Bertrand Aristide , it is only because Aristide was more of an overt sadist. Preval, the current president, is no better, and his alliance with Hugo Chavez makes him a liability, as well.

    Haiti has the same geography as the Dominican Republic which, while hardly a model of governance, is nowhere near as impoverished and desperate. Haiti's per capita GDP, for example, was $1,338 in 2009, while in the Dominican Republic, it was $8,200.

    Frankly, there is little that the US can do for Haiti, barring an outright invasion and annexation of the island, followed by massive reform of every institution there, something that we have no business doing.
