Seems like these rich donors of Bills are going to save all the money they can because after Obamas tax hike they will need it.

Apparently, he's forgotten that "charity begins at home." While we all feel compassion for Haiti (which has always been in dire straits as long as this senior can remember), hasn't the time come for us to confine our giving to Americans -- not to illegal aliens, poverty-stricken countries and anyplace who suffers a natural disaster?

Whoa, whoa, whoa...back the "fake compassion" train up here, I don't give a rat's ass what happens to haiti, so what's with the "we all feel compassion" jazz.

It's the liberals with their phony "compassion" that got us into the jams we're in like illegal immigration for instance.

So speak for yourself about "compassion" for haiti.

I would happily donate to a Haitian relief fund if I could be assured that the people who needed the relief actually got the funds I sent. Haiti's government is far too corrupt.

Cuba operated a medical aid station in Haiti as a political tool to gain influence in the Carribbean. After the earthquake western countries arrived with state-of-the-art portable medical facilities which made Cuba's medical aid look obsolete and chintzy by comparison.

Why don't these billionaire/millionaire politician donate?

What about the Hollywood crowd?
What about the rapper/gang banger?
They have more money than they know what to do with.

What about he ACLU and the NAACP?

60% of the money donated by ordinary private citizens never reaches its destination.

IT IS A BIG SCAM !!!

Why should anyone donate a single dime to the Haitians? What have they ever done for this country? They brought in disease and crime and gangs. Giving to the Haitian relief effort today is like giving to the Ethiopian famine relief in the mid 1980s. The "government" will only steal all the cash and food and keep it for themselves. And while they're doing that, they'll send us more Haitian piece of shit boat people to bring more crime, diseases, and gangs to our country.

Maybe the rest of the world realizes that sending money and other aid to that ####hole is just like throwing it away. Nothing will ever change there.

John Travolta did it right. Got some donors together, loaded up his large plane with relief supplies, and flew them in himself.
