Research a bit on who runs the mainstream media networks and where those people originated from, and you'll see why things like this don't make the msn.

Would be interesting to see what would happen if a 7.0+ quake hit Israel. No doubt they would find a way to link mother nature to Hamas, Hezbollah or Iran.
If there was a God.

What does concern me is where all the money goes.
back when the sunami hit in indonesia there was a huga amount of cash 'pledged' .... whatever pledged means... but can anyone tell us if the homes and buildings have been rebuilt yet.
Same with the damage from Katrina, areas of new orleans still lye in pieces.
So where does the cash go ?

I thought the sarcasm was obvious.
Sorry for underestimating your sense of humor.
You might consider taking a supplement for your irony deficiency.

I was wondering why The US Gov pledged so much. Isnt this going to dig a bigger hole for you guys?
The thing that got me the most was watching a news program on Fox this morning, I cant recall what it was called as it was not something that I normally watch. But he was an older guy! (if I find I will post).
But what shocked me was the over abundance of egotistical pride this guy had. Now I am all for supporting people in Crisis. And I think its a great thing for the US to stick their hands up and say look we are in crisis as well, but we are going to help you (not good for the people at home in the US struggling to survive themselves). But this guy really was blowing wind up peoples butts about how great a savior the US is, and that everyone should be thankful that the US is a super power otherwise there would be no support for those that are in Crisis's like Haiti. That the US are pretty much GODS when it comes to helping those in strife.
WTF is up with that sorta crap. From what I can understand, most countries in the world pledge what they can to start with (only what they can afford, sensible thinking I would assume, NO!) ifs its only a little that still makes a big difference. This guy went on to talk about whom pledged what right, and OMG that was just as disgusting. He went on to comment sarcastically on what Venezuela contributed (one example), a hospital boat, off the top of my head, this, obviously, is all they can afford and possibly all that they have, and he rammed their butts so damn hard about sending ONLY that, it was shameful, they were not the only ones he hit as well.
I was so sickened by this, that I had to turn it off. THE SHAME... HOW BLOODY DARE HE.
Thinking on this, I would think that these other countries like Venezuela can only afford this because the US GOV has been stealing their resources for years. Among other countries, and I would like to also point out that the US GOV is not the saviors they claim to be.
WW2 I think is another good example.
Sorry US Citizens, nothing against you guys, but your gov and media (along with other counties in the world) need to get off their god damn high horses and stop pulling stunts like this pooh! It just makes you guys look so hypocritical and even more egotistical its bloody shameful.
Just trying to look now for the show, and I also recall that it was on a Fox news station.

Well, right or wrong, the US has been giving vast amounts of money to Israel for quite some time wiki and we've always aided nations who've suffered natural disasters.
I understand and agree that the ratio is ridiculously imbalanced, but not quite sure what Obama has to do with it any more than any previous US president in the last 50 years or so.
In any case, this argument is fallacious and fatally flawed ... the two issues are unrelated.
Edit to fix linkie
