Time to Ante Up

Just one thing tonight. The earthquake in Haiti. What a flipping shame. This is so sad. The poorest folks on this side of the planet and they get hammered down a little further. Hell, quite a bit further I guess. Life is certainly not fair.

Below find some links to relief agencies who could probably use some jingle about now.

I have barely a pot to piss in but my wife and I are chipping in. So should you. So what if the next credit card bill is late or a little light this month.

Oh stop being a bleeding heart for a bunch of idiots just because the media is making a big deal about it.

I'm not into helping idiots that live on a little over populated island. It's the poorest nation in this hemisphere and has a population of over 10,000,000 monkeys in an area that is always getting hit with natural disasters.

I think it's stupid to keep helping them and sending them aid, they've been depending on others for years just to keep on going on.

If they had any brains they would reduce their numbers. And did you see pictures of the Presidential Palace? It's pretty clear to me that the rich there control what wealth is there while many suffer.

I'm not spending a dime to help them, a lot of the money and supplies won't be distributed fairly anyway, the well off will gobble it up.

What do you want to bet that the first thing that gets attention and repaired is that palace?

Billy - The depth of your compassion underwhelms me. But you do what you gotta do and I will do the same.

Did you hear what that senile old fart Pat Robertson had to say about Haiti??? "They made a pact with the Devil". That's why the quake happened.
At least Billy has a good reason for saying what he said, he's an old curmudgeon!!

El Cerdo Ignatius said...

Quite the video, Crum. There are lots of them out there, including one on catching the quake from a traffic camera. What a terrible thing to befall these poor people.

@Kulkuri: What? Pat Robertson is still alive?

Randal Graves said...

Satan told me to donate to his BFF, Pat Robertson, instead.

BBC said...

Yeah, you do that.

US ups ante on Haitian assistance, commits $100M.

There you go, the government has just given them $100M of YOUR money so there is no need for you to send more out of your budgets.

More that wouldn't for the most get in the proper hands anyway and would just be used for the wrong reasons.

You're an idiot, a well meaning idiot, but still an idiot. :-)
