  1. Tsunami victims....What a slap in the face!
     
  2. doesnt matter what we do..its never enough or the right thing...but if we dont do it..same thing
     
  3. Too bad Bush already pledged 35 million?
     
  4. pffft, australia donated 14 million pounds plus.

    eh eh eh
     
  5. Does anyone know how much EACH country has donated?
     
  6. Oh my #$%#ing God, it's not a #$%#ing competition.
     
  7. oh its a compeition!
     
  8. Yeah, the American donation sounded pretty pathetic. I saw that Canada donated about half what the US did (but has 1/10 the population of course). US should have started w/ 100 mill to keep pace...

    The stingyness was mentioned on the News Hour tonight and the US rep' said they will give a pile more later when they have a better idea about the need... that's probably a better idea in fact...

    Edit -- Actually Canada's initial pledge is twice what the US's is. That's pretty sad...
     
  9. Da funny dude...
     
  10. I just want those countries and people affected to recover, that is all.
     
  11. When a country spends 900 billion on Iraq, and gives 14 million to multiple countries in need, its BS
     
  12. A) The number is 150 billion. Get your facts straight.

    B) We pledged 35 million, get your facts straight.

    C) The US gives more aid than any other country. Stop complaining.
     
  13. oh thats where you're wrong, its the biggest competition of all!

  18. we r da winnerz!
     
  19. Well he was slightly exaggerating, but both of you do make a good point. But the US is so rich that they can afford to give more than what they have already.
