Who would LOAN money to a corrupt country that doesnt show any positive return?
The people there are either corrupt ,gang related ,destructive or just don't want to work.(Enough is Enough) People need a reality check.

Well, I can see you are aptly named. There are plenty of American's who are approved 'free' money and show absolutely no promise toward the future and yet they are still allowed to drain resources and taxes. Further more, do not base your ignorance on what you THINK you know. Obviously time and money has been wasted on your upbringing, yet, you too are allowed at the very least drinking water. Get over yourself. Sooner than later.

Hope you don't suffer from too many nose bleeds while riding such a high horse.
We bailed out that slum numerous times and always, it ends up the same. Meanwhile, we aided the D R once, and now they're in very good shape.
Looks like it comes down to the quality of, or lack thereof, the natives.

Your a fool,My upbringing has little to due with the way I spend money.
I ran and owned a business's worth more money that you properly couldn't comprehend. I done well for myself by LEARNING not to continue throwing money continuously into something that just will not work.
Due your homework on how much money was already giving to them that is unaccounted for before you talk, You only make yourself foolish and ignorant.
I have been to Hatie, I donated thousand of dollars to different organisations and I still have people working for me that arrived from there. I wounder have you done half of that?

Dude? How eloquent. Einstein couldn't spell to save his posterior end, yet I doubt that you could ever match the level of HIS success.

Not quite. It's a natural reaction associated with reading posts by such an insecure mind that feels a need to ridicule others for HOW they said something, rather than WHAT they said.
As to leaving me in the dust, I know not of what you refer, but evidently dust is very important to you. Oh well, to each his own. Enjoy your dir......er......dust.
