    Re: Have you donated to Haiti relief yet via cell?!

    The wife and I donated $10.00 via the cell phone to the Red Cross. It was painless, although times are hard right now. But as hard as times are for us they pale in comparison to those poor bastards.

    I spend more on a few gallons of gas. I think I can afford to use the same amount to help someone in terrible need.

    I hear ya. I've been unemployed for months. But I can still manage to forgo a bag of Doritos and a pepsi in order to help out people that are FAR, FAR worse off than I will likely ever be in my worst nightmare.

    No, you are paying much less than that through your tax dollars. Dividing $100 million by the 300 million people in the population means that, on average, Americans are paying 33 cents worth of tax dollars for Haiti aid each. Now, I realize that you likely make a lot more money than most people... but assuming that you pay ten times more taxes than the average American, that means that you are contributing about $3.33. That's not a lot.

    The government using your tax money generously is not a justifiable cop-out for not using your own money generously. That kind of mentality is what leads to the nanny-state.

    EDIT: Hadn't seen the post where you said you already donated.

    I prefer not to have my cell number fall into the hands of charities. I gave money to the American Red Cross at my bank.

    If I lived closer I would volunteer my medical professional services. It's just logistically impossible for me at the moment.

    We have hungry homeless people right here at home---they should come first. Let the Dominion republic help. They share the same Island, and won't even take them water. what does that tell ya about the kind of Neighbors the Haitians are?

    They are human beings, above all. Yes, they are a dysfunctional society, which makes the suffering even worse for them.

    I'm glad our strong and wealthy nation is taking charge over there. They need help.

    The conditions in Haiti, and the 3rd world in general, are not even comparable to the conditions of even the poorest Americans.

    And we do help our poor as well. But this situation is a humanitarian calamity of the highest degree.

    We are a generous, compassionate nation and this disaster is in our Hemisphere, not very far away from our shores.
