I deplore the way the US treats the poor Haitians. They bad mouth them and don't send any real aid. I would send in a team of educated people to take over the country. Then tough love would follow. If you want to eat you will work. Start by helping yourselves. Stop the crying. Start fixing the country. Then when real progress is being made I will declare myself president for life.
The country can probably be fixed but it will take someone like me to fix it. A man of vision and foresight.
Good Gosh...I think we just gave them 1.7 billion dollars before the storm....aka your tax money.....where is that money....this is just throwing good money after bad....all this money should have strings attached.....some birth control would be nice....someone can not feed a family with six children on a dollar a day....not even here in a very rich country...this is really sad...but where are all the other countries to help these people...they all put their head under the blanket until we pony is getting old...since we have so many of our own hurting........wake up and smell the coffee.....who will be here for us......

They did not prepare because they are a group of stupid people. I am not talking about an education, I mean they have absolutely no common sense. That is why the ones that are here have kids who walk all over them and the kids keep disrupting school classes and get arrested. Of course Jean Harry Baptise-Jean Francois will pray to Jesus to fix everything. God man, turn on your air conditioner, kill the cockaroaches running all over your kitchen and change your clothes.

The Haitian people have cut down every tree in the country causing soil erosion and uncontrolable flash flooding. They breed like vermin, causing perpetual starvation. They lack morality and ethics, causing lawlessness and anarchy. Their leaders are thieves and they believe that others should support them. Until the Haitians help themselves the rest of the world should allow them to sink into oblivion. We need to help our own in Texas and Louisianna, the hell with Haiti.
Thought you were describing the Democratic Party !
