    Hapless, helpless and demanding!
    My cousin a relief worker just returned from that pathetic island and it is as bad or worse than the news reports.

    Yet he reports that not a single individual takes any personal responsibility for their own place in their plight. Instead we see planet of the apes leader Michelle Obama pleading to what I guess is her civic sense of American responsibility for some deranged sense of commitment to that useless nation.

    9 million people that simply cannot come together to pull themselves
    to dig out of the rubble.


    Not unlike Katrina they look for help and aid with no leadership or contingency plan in place.

    I ask...what is their purpose or place in the world? My cousin had to go and was assaulted a half a dozen times trying to keep peace and distribute food.

    Guess we can thank Clinton!

    We need to rethink our place in the big picture!

    What? That you are part of a broken society, but look down on other broken societies. I guess yours is a little nicer than those animals live in, huh?

    Thats the point?

    You want people to take responsibility for a natural disaster?

    Implying the first lady is an ape?

    Clintons caused an earthquake and generations of poverty?

    Questioning their purpose on the planet? They were born. There purpose is to survive. Like you and me. Im sure they would prefer better.

    Youre just looking to stir the pot, right?

    The question is what class has Haiti shown it it's hour of need? No leadership,
    no infrastructure. No ability to cope with the crisis, yet we are condemned?
    Esplain that Lucy.

    You don't know your history...the Clinton administration threw money at a bad administration and the hierarchy never made the adjustment to put responsibility of leadership into place. Get some education!

    So your basing this on a foreign aid FAIL.

    That list will be long and encompass all recent presidents from both parties.

    Think of this,......

    A Man my wife USED to work with was in Haiti during the 'Quake, He's not coming home.
    He was in his early thirties, wife and three children. He was in one of the hotels that collapsed.

    So just remember this when you start another Haiti bashing thread,
    many people, one of them being a US Air Force Comissioned Officer lost his life there.

    Think about it,....................

    So, which decedent of the of the branch are you from? And I certainly do not disagree with you on the party responsibly could have been done better. And let us help them with construction and relief...eh?

    It is a full fledged humanitarian crisis.

    I served and was proud to have done so...but we have not learned...I am sorry for your loss...these things can be better handled...that was the point of the post. Food rotting on planes...money unaccountable...lots of bad stuff!

    Look, sometimes you just have to help. Even when there is nothing in it for you.
