I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Giving them jobs got them to where they are? And, your solution is to leave them without jobs and swimming in poverty? Sorry, but I don't agree that that will fix anything.Outside the box my ass. This is the same kind of mentality that got them into this kind of a mess in the first place.
True, but they get tornados with your garden variety thunderstorm like what happens here in the states.Hurricanes have hundreds of small destructive tornado's inside of them. So yea they do.
Hence the reason to grow some kind of industry in Haiti.They do not have the economic base or population to deal with this like the US. To even make such a comparison is just naive.
Yeah, and the folks in charge, to date, have been doing such a wonderful job?Same old slave mentality.

What I'm talking about is putting people to work, give them a chance to make steady paychecks, create a tax base to support the government, create a situation where the best and brightest don't get their asses up outta there, the first chance they get, leaving just the idiots and the criminals to govern the country. It's certainly going to work better than the system that is currently in place.
I'm not talking about taking away self rule. I'm talking about doing some baby-sitting for a few decades.Taking away the self rule will not make it better. We see how well it is working in Iraq. I guess some people never learn.
In recent memory, I've rode out hurricanes Gustav, Ike, Rita, Katrina and Lily. That's just the ones I can call to mind. I grew up in Louisiana, whatta you think?I am sorry I guess you have never been in a tropical storm have you?
Population is relative and the infrastructure will never come, without some economic stability.Again the US has the infrastructure and population to deal with it, Haiti does not. Did you miss it when I said it earlier?
Now, you're just being negative.Yea because sweat shops are the wave of the future.
If the US isn't going to try to trully fix things in Haiti, then I vote we stop wasting our money on them.Does not give us the right to do anything.
