    Kudos to the US .. well those from both sides of the political spectrum that have stepped up and put aside politics to help millions in need in Haiti. I am glad the US still can show the human side despite wars and economic crisis, show it as they did after the Tusanami and earthquakes in Pakistan and other disasters around the world.

    And Kudos to the rest of the world as well who are sending money, people and material to Haiti.

    We may have our differences on policy and may have spats over details on who did what, where and how much, but when it comes to crunch time and the lives of hundreds of thousands are in danger from a natural disaster then the world stands together. We did it during Katrina, the Pakistani earthquake, the Christmas Tsunami and many others.
    After I saw the way that the Liberals used Katrina and Rita for political mileage, I'm not a damn bit ashamed.

    Uhhh...rather...shame on those...since 2005 who are exploiting catastrophe, exploitations however ridiculous were acceptable up to 2005, Sean Penn considered a hero by many my proof.

    I suspect they are doing it because they feel it's important and a worthwhile cause. Kudo's to both for putting aside past enmity to do what they feel is right.

We actually CAN, if we just let ourselves do it. America can move mountains, if we all put our minds to it, and leave the bitter partisanship at home, preferably in the garbage can.

    What's to stop them from performing miracles at home? Only themselves. Coming together on Haiti is the proof.

    The answer to your question is that there is absolutely no doubt in anyone's mind that helping these poor people is the right course of action. It's totally crystal clear.

    Our domestic policies are much more ethically complex. There are many valid and well-reasoned arguments from many angles, with decent people on all sides who can't agree on solutions.

    And it's certainly not going to slow me down, wink wink.
