    We wouldn't be repeating mistakes of the past. Sometimes, folks totally misinterpret history.

    Yes we would, and we still have not learned our lesson.

    Yes it's the same thing. Too bad people can't see they are just as partisan as the left was for 9 years.

    Was it also Robertson that said Katrina was due to the sins of New Orleans? Funny though the sleaziest section of New Orleans (the French Quarter)was spared as it was on high ground.

    Sugar Cane is great for ethanol production. Ask Brazil. They import no fuel as it's all home grown ethanol from sugar cane.

    Brazil isn't alone in that respect. America feeds a quarter of the grain crop to its cars.

    One quarter of US grain crops fed to cars - not people, new figures show | Environment | The Guardian

    Es fácil a asumir que los Estados Unidos necesitan un otra nacíon a explotar todos alles las cabecitas negras in Haiti. Tal ves presidente Obama deberado a pedir el presidente de Haiti sí iramos?

    ***

    It's probably lack of retrospection that would lead one to think that the united states is eager for another country to exploit. But it would be a simple matter to simple ask Haiti point blank if they would like us to leave, and and then act accordingly. It's obvious they won't, thus it's obvious we won't be occuping the country. And since so many of you don't seem to give a **** about the disaster there, well, I'm sure you'd be very happy if the haitians gave us the opportunity to not give a ****, eh?

    I totally agree with this provided apdst is talking about tax dollars being spent versus private donations.

    To all you bleeding heart liberals I say "sell your house and donate it to whoever you want".

    If you want US Taxpayer money to fund this mission, there better be a US friendly government and a self supporting nation when we are done with it.
