    You want the Government to provide for you, why shouldn't they?

    Once upon a time it was considered a good thing to be looked upon as heroes.

    How sad that it no longer is...

    The Murkin gooberment should disappear.
    The states should have never united to begin with.
    That was an old empire trick imported from the land of the inbred.

    You start out being heroes but eventually they end up resenting you.....or maybe even trying to kill you because you've worn out your welcome.

    Once you begin helping people they learn to expect that help.

    This story seems to be something the press wants to use to illustrate Obama is doing good in Haiti.

    Obama is conducting town halls and trying to tell us all of the stuff that happened last year never happened. He dropped Haiti a few days after the event. He turned it over to the military and to Hillary.

    What this story tells us....and Liberals will hate this idea....is that our military men and women can be really good at disaster relief. They're better at it then just about anyone.

    The Haitian government is on of the most corrupt and inept in human history. They are incapable of handling a disaster of this magnitude without lining their own pockets first.

    I don't want the US to do anything close to taking over Haiti's problems but would like to see the UN provide oversight. They were hungry before the earthquake due to a useless government. It is time for the world to step in and help that hell hole

    :rolleyes:

    Of course Liberals hate the idea that the military is good at anything.

    This is very amusing.

    Last week Obama was bad because people in Haiti were suffering.
    This week Obama is bad because people in Haiti are grateful for our help.

    When has the UN proven itself capable of administering anything without equal amounts of graft and corruption? Remember Oil for Food?

    I am still mystified as to why we are compelled to send hundreds of millions of dollars and men to clean up their mess. Haiti isn't New Orleans. Now we will own the country and this will only become a lightning rod of criticism for the U.S.

    Well, I imagine some of these Haitian folks are eating and drinking better now than they were before the earthquake.
