their country is leveled. They need help, and our Statue of Liberty says we will take them. ?????
we HAVE to until we change it. It makes us (me included) a bunch of hypocrits.
Now let me see if I got this right? The French turned their back and support for Haiti by giving them independence and they gave the USA Statue of
Liberty.... Seems to me that the French are very clever.
Now who can we give a statue of Liberty to so that we may be allowed to take care of our own homeless, Vets of all US wars who our country has turned
their backs on and are so willing to help another nation. If we can float off the Statue of Liberty to another nation then maybe we can finally take
care of New Orleans, as we should have done in the first place.
Am I right we sent more aid to Haiti that we did for New Orleans and quicker?
All this aid and money sent out of country when we have 10% unemployment with people daily loosing their family homes. Our own American homeless are
sick, cold, hungry and ill will start to be envious of Haiti and wish for their own disaster to happen before the American government and people to
see and help them!
To quote another poster in this thread, "I am sorry for what they went through but it is NOT our responsibility to bail everyone out!" and I will
add this to that quote, whilst ignoring our own people as we had our earthquake it was when millions of Americans lost their jobs, homes,
life saving and retirement
so that the banks and corporations drink and make merry! Let us not forget Katrina victims who are still suffering.
to remember about the American Farmers who are going bust every day. I saw a program several nights ago on English TV whereas one
farmer was quoted is saying that he was loosing $1500 on every tanker truck that leaves his farm. He then went on to show us the vacant farms in his
community in the farming belt of America. The banks that we bailed out now owns these but are not working them! So I will leave with this last
question. When the banks owns all the farms, who will feed the American people and those hungry mouths that we are now adding to take what we will
not give to our own homeless?
If you want to give to Haiti that is your right but please don't forget about our own!
