One more disturbing statistic:
Of the $1.15 billion in aid promised by the U.S., exactly none of it has reached Haiti.
Not one single penny.
A billion dollars and some change could go really far in helping a lot of people who are homeless, desperate, in need of immediate medical condition.
Does this not go without saying?
The fiscal year in Washington ends in about a week. Politicians don’t seem to grasp the urgency of this situation.
Had this disaster occured in England, France or Germany… had those impacted been our fellow peach-hued friends and not the brown-colored ones…
… We wouldn’t be having this conversation.
Shame on us for not keeping our word, and for killing people as a result.
