I understand that what happened in Haiti is tragic and they need all the help they can get, but having the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan tweeting about it makes me sick. They need to go away, of course they are going to tweet about it, but are they really going to do anything about it?

I'd like to know how someone with a small income, like myself is supposed to help, far away and with little resources. I guess I'll stop going to the movies (the 3 times a year I can afford it) and making the rich richer, and instead set up a savings account to give when something this horrible happens. I'd also like to know how much these people are contributing?

You might want to give that advice to the Haitians. They turned that part of the island into a wasteland.

Was your comment really necessary? Here is a person of limited means who wants to help people they don't know in a time of dire need.

I applaud someone who is altruistic enough to want to help others. It is people like the one you responded to so "eloquently" that reminds me that I can be a better person and help others more than I do so now.

It is people like you, "Aimforthehead", that show how uncaring and mean a percentage of the population can be.

It's people like you that show how ignorant a percentage of the population can be. The majority of Haitians are devoted to voo doo. That means blood rituals. Every day. Whether it's a cat, a dog, a chicken, whatever.. throats are slit in haitian backyards like suburban families break out the hot dogs every weekend. Sometimes the more devoted devotee's go a little further than domestic animals, and a kid might "disappear," for the sake of the religion. I won't go into more details of other things that go on there on a regular basis, but if it went on next door to you, you'd be in a constant state of terror. And these are the people you want to help get "back on their feet." Sorry, but I think you're an ignorant, sick, and evil person, since you advocate the support of a lifestyle that is qualified pathology, and kills many of it's people yearly.

I see, because to you EVERY SINGLE HAITIAN DOES THESE THINGS, WE HAVE TO LET THEM SUFFER.

I seriously doubt every single Haitian performs these rituals.

Of course using your same "logic", you could justify al Queda attacking the U. S. because they view us as the devil. Also under your "logic" the KKK has been justified in committing criminal acts against people because they are not white.

I advocate providing help (food, water, medical, search and rescue) to help people who have been hit with a natural disaster.

Your own prejudice is blinding you to reaching out and helping others.

In conclusion, to paraphrase your statement about me: Sorry, but I think you're an ignorant, sick, and evil person, to allow others to die because you are so filled with hate for them
