    Unless the God you purport to believe in supports the taking of innocent lives as you do. And if that's the case, who gives a crap whether God blesses us or not!

    My father was, but I won't bash the Brits. My mother was born and raised in Middlesex, and was working in London during the war. With buzzbombs falling all around, she still never missed a day of work, and neither did most Brits. I actually admire their courage.

    You know, people seem to forget that the US and Britain have been allies for a very long time, so there is no need for us to bash each other. We are all on the same side here.

    Another thing I notice is the plight of the Haitian orphans. I can't help but notice the many white families reaching out and adopting these unfortunate little children. This is a heartwarming act, but yet, I don't see any black families stepping up to the plate to do the same thing. Perhaps there are black familiies adopting these children, but I haven't yet seen any on the news.
    what's your problem? exactly how many white families have you seen on the news who have adopted haitian orphans?

    All of 'em, but no black families were filmed. If they had been there, the news media would have filmed them and made a big issue about it.

    Not our fault your government refused/did not use the 800 million+ aid sent by countries around the world. We offered.
    You have been reading the wrong sources regarding Katrina. You need to check on why Mayor Nagin and Governor Blanco refused to ask for help from the US Government. The buses were sitting there waiting to evacuate the citizens from New Orleans, but Nagin twiddled his thumbs and waited too late. The rescue of its citizens falls to the state first, and if they need help, they have to request help from the US Government before help arrives.

    We're just one of the many there to help.

    My idea of God is neither Good nor Evil. Basically I am wishing for good things to happen to my country, and using a common phrase to make my point.

    When the earthquake hit Wenchuan, China with 69,195 killed, 374,177 injured and 18,392 missing you didn't see Laura Bush on TV asking for donations. Why? Just look at Laura and then at a Chinese. Kind of obvious isn't it.
    I was in Beijing when that quake hit, she was on TV over there expressing support for the Chinese people.

    Why have you people ruined a nice thread?
