since the tax payer supports the gov. it would be the gov. paying for them. the gov. should not buy any defective materials. they will only have bickering and law suits later so say NO.

After Hurricane Rita we held a local election in a military tent. Much safer in the long run than that awful FEMA camper I stayed in for 6 months.

Best concept is hot air tent-ballons. In the event of a hurricane or earthquake threat the tents convert to escape ballons. They will stay aloft for 30 minutes......and then deflate over open water.

It is great to see and know that the body of Christ was in Haiti right from the beginning helping the people of Haiti before and after Haiti's earthquake hit. They stay in the trenches where the people of live and serve them with Christ-like selfless love and compassion. Genuine Christians are not haphazardly sending money in order to stroke their "guilty consciences" like others maybe doing. Jesus is our King and He commands us to take care of the widow, orphan, those in poverty, help those who are naked and visit those in prison, and bring His healing and deliverance to a sin-sick world. God's love motives us to serve others and love others enough to demonstrate it with action.

Even Pat Robinson's Operation blessings has been conducting operations in Haiti for decades and is doing more to help the Haitian people practically than out federal government. It is great to see that Christians have had an infrastructure in place in Haiti to get around the pagan bottle-necks propped up by secular socialist bureaucracies which were designed to keep the people in poverty. But it is great that Christians did not heed the United Nations suggestion to leave Haiti's search a rescue before hundreds others were yet to be rescued. Great job pastor Rod Parsley!

Americans should never have been given those poisoned cans to live in, neither should the Haitains. When people are suffering, it's not helping them to give them something that was already proven dangerous. Tax payer money should never have been given to the people who built these dangerous death traps. Give them military tents if necessary. USA should puts its best foot forward at all times and be a leader in helping others. We are a compassionate country, in spite of what some say.

Haiti is not America's problem. Don't spend my tax money on chiggers (colored haitian 'iggers)

I can't imagine a 150lb Chigger, despite the behavioral similarities of the Haitian biped species.......

"Chiggers are the larvae of mites belonging to the suborder prostigmata, commonly called harvest mites or scrub mites"

""After a parasitic chigger hatches, it finds a good position on tall grass or other vegetation so it can spring onto a passing animal. When it finds an animal, it attaches to the animal to gather the protein it needs to grow into the nymph stage""
