    And all I see is Hope For Haiti. Who gives a damn. There are people here in that are goin without food, Shelter. people who are begging for jobs so they can support their families and they expect me to donate my money to save a bunch of Useless Buttwipes that keep trying to come to america for free. Fix the problems here, donate money to those that are losing their homes and goin hungry. I dont see it, Give me a Flippin break.

    People can call me an a-hole all they want, but I refuse to help people who refuse to help themselves. That means nothing for the Haitians.

    Over half these people live in squander. They don't even have running water! What level do we bring them to? Back to the squander? The previous horrible living conditions? No water, not enough food, no proper health care and no jobs? We plan to aid them back to that? Back to being angry, violent, bitter people who are barely able to subsist?

    I don't think so. If we 'give money' we're going to have to give until their lives improve a lot better than it was previous. So, why couldn't they do that for themselves? Move from Haiti. It's a turd hole. Why would people want to live in a turd hole? People we should just leave the hell alone.

    Nah, no one 'expects' any of you bad a--es to do a d-- thing. If you want do to something, besides bitch, do so.
    It's a pity that your evening of TV was so terrible-like interupted.
    God, the nerve of them folk being born there.

    Even though they live in squalor, they don't deserve a huge natural disaster, do they?

    'Deserves' got nothing to do with it.
    Does Ugly 'deserve' to live in E. Tennessee?
    How about Squallor, living in SCA, the next third world zone in the USA! (live in 'SQUANDER' - - too bad spell check doesn't have a 'noun' function!)
    Check out the countries sending aid down there. We are NOT ALONE!

    Question:

    How bad did the Dominican Republic fare with the Earthquakes? Aren't they next door?

    Seems like they should have had some damage if the devastation was so bad.

    Man I'm so glad to see the spirit of giving is alive and well here on the forum :confused: If it will kill you to give ten whole dollars to some poor sap who's entire family was just crushed to death, then don't do it. Nobody's forcing you. And nobody's forcing you to watch the damn program either, just change the channel. Sorry someones tradgedy ruined your evening.

    Red, do some checking on plate techs. There can be total dev in one area, while a nearby area will have only very minor problems. It really depends on the underlaying rock structures. Sorry, I don't have a site to patch you to on this subject.

    johnm, i wish i had voiced my thoughts, with your class.

    At one of my suppliers just this week they were telling me how bad it is. A contractor put a ad in the newspaper for a carpenders helper. He got carpenders with 25 years experience applying for the job. He said could only offer 10 bucks an hour and they jumped at it. He cancelled the ad as soon as it came out cause his phone was ringing off the hook. When I say there are no jobs I mean it. When i say I cant tell you how many self employed people I know that are just fighting to put fuel in their gas tanks, i am not joking. I know guys running out of deer meat to eat. It is great if you are in the position to help these people. 10 bucks is hard to come by for some right now and its a slap in the face when liberal artist get on tv and ask for your money. it just goes to show how out of touch some are. I wonder how the people in Califorinia feel?

    edit: I guess it also a slap in the face when attention is given to these people and no one seems to care about the people here being flushed down the toilet. It sure does seem that
    NO ONE gives a chit about us!

    To be frank, there are some folks on this forum I ain't proud to know :( An inability to empathize with and a stunningly vile hatred towards those less fortunate than us make one ugly indeed. Sad.

    Before this gets too ugly, and we start eating our own, I'd just like to add a few comments.

    When did the Hatians stand up on their own?
    They get billions in aid every year, and their government sucks it up.
    This has been going on for years. Nothing has changed, and the people still live in filth.

    Who do we blame?

    Does the world not contribute enough to their plight?
    Or does the government rule with an iron fist?

    Saddam had palaces and slew his dissents. We tried to change that.
    Did it work? Time will tell.

    The US people give more in aid than any other country in the world. FREELY!
    It's NOT our governments 'choice' as to where our tax dollars are spent when it comes to aiding other countries. Military support, logistics, and safety are one thing. Throwing tax dollars to the corrupt government is another matter.

    We have our own problems that need to be addressed. I pay taxes for that.
    Our government seems to feel that those dollar are better spent in other countries. I dissagree. My taxes are for LEGAL American citizens use.

    Call me what you will. The bottom line is; let me keep my own money and I'll donate where I can. When you take it from me, you are wasting it.
    The bureaucracy involved makes it meaningless.:mad:

    If we cleaned our own stables, we'd be in a much better position to help others.

    When our own government can't support the citizens of our country, it has NO right to support those of others.

    I truly feel for the people of Hati. They deserve our help.
    Their government does not!

    Likewise Mr.Kirker. Would be a pleasure to get together for some shooting and maybe knock back a few SA's soon. I just got that BRNO Mod 4, I might be able to keep up with your..... what was that you had? Win 52 or Rem 513? Can't remember :eek:

    PS- I got 16 years in TN under my belt :p The yankee in me continues to receed :D
