Haiti Earthquake…Please Give

As I am sure you have heard by now, the nation of Haiti has suffered from a horrible earthquake, with just a massive amount of damage and loss of life.  Complicating the situation is the fact that this nation is poor to begin with and simply doesn’t have the systems and infrastructure to handle such an emergency.  As many as 3 million may be homeless.  3 million!  They need as much help as they can get to deal with this.  Please consider giving a donation to one of the many great organizations that do have the capability of getting in there and helping.  Not many of us can personally make a trip to Haiti to help out, but we certainly can give financial support to those that can.  The link below is a website provide by Yahoo which has links to popular help organizations, as well as a search engine that will help you find another organization should those not be to your liking.

Now while we are on the subject, could we all agree that the next time there is a disaster somewhere, we just issue gag orders for certain people?  Pat Robertson is just a troll that can’t seem to help himself from saying something stupid following some disaster.  I know he seeks publicity, I just don’t know toward what end.  Surely saying the things he does is not helpful to his income, which I guess comes through speaking engagements.  But Pat Robertson saying something stupid after a disaster is almost expected.  I didn’t think we would see somebody try to outdo him in stupidity.

But Rush Limbaugh apparently wanted to step up to that plate.  Rush really had some gems today.  He said this disaster “will play right into Obama’s hands,” and this would bolster Obama’s credibility in the “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country,” further adding that this is why Obama “couldn’t wait to get out there” to comment on this.  Then he goes on to say that “We’ve already donated to Haiti.  It’s called the U.S. income tax.”  He even threw out the old conservative talk show chestnut of ‘you can’t just keep throwing money at the problem’.  Wow!  Just wow!  That somebody could be that clueless is stunning.  That this same somebody is a multi-millionaire because he has a radio show listen to by millions is mind-boggling.  Then again, I used to be fan.  I cannot tell you why I was, but I certainly can tell you why I am not anymore.  He may not actually be the “Worst Person In the World”, but if you had a spectrum of people from best to worst, he would be way on the wrong side of that spectrum!
