My wife and I flew to Houston Texas two days after the Fruit of the Loom underwear bomber did not complete his mission over Detroit. A couple weeks later Haiti was bombed by a severe earth quake. I heard the untimely comment by Pat Robertson and I've been asked How can a loving God allow tragedy to come into the lives of the people he loves. I've wrestled with this question many times, come to resolution, and yet when another "Haiti earth quake" occurs, my resolution does not sound adequate in words. In the presence of tragedy, words and explanations don't matter and are never enough. jbz

Its all in your head. It all boils down to what is in your head and what you believe.

i'm truly sorry guys...didn't mean to start up a religious debate.

it just seemed to me that the survivors needed food and water right now; and would probably request those items as relief supplies, over solar powered Bibles.

maybe i'm just too practical, and as i understand it, the Haitians are very religious, and might appreciate the gifts.

As long as it doesn't involve taxpayers' money, there's nothing morally wrong with sending stuff that they may or may not need but in any case are free to accept or decline (if the goods are allowed in by the occupying forces, that is..).

What is worrying, is the involvement of governments (again with taxpayers' monies).

where private organizations and businesses are much more efficient at solving the problems at hand.

http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/a ... 48386.html

Not many people seem to understand that the reason why the Haitian economy was such that people could not even afford decent housing, was because of the mess left by the French, continued by all kinds of governmental organizations like the US and the UN etc. to their own benefit.

It's about time people start to understand that violence and coercion in for example the name of "we the people" executed by governments is no solution for any issue, and only meant to line the pockets of those in charge, next to providing "nice photo opportunities" for despicable low-lifes like that Clinton-woman.

It is a shame that after all that happened, Haitians are being forced into a helpless position to once again be force-fed by others instead of being helped to regain their sovereignty. I suppose it's quite hard to get rid of the idea of colonialism and occupation. Old wine in new sacks. Bah.
