Susan Lehmkuhl (New Venture Realty, LLC) commented on my recent post, Are You Prepared?, with the following question and statement "Where in the world is Obama coming up with all that money to send to Haiti?  With the financial bailout and now this, I can only imagine how our taxes are going to increase and what will that do to our struggling economy?   More tough times ahead for all."

Well, Susan, I can answer that question quite easily. China as pledged a mere 5 million dollars of their money, an infinitesimal pittance of their wealth, to Haiti while America on the other hand has pledged 160 million of China's money. That's where we're getting it. We just increased our debt to China by another 160 mil and gave it to Haiti so we could look like the good guys once again. That's like stealing money out of your Mothers purse to go gamble with when you're on a losing streak. You're spot on Susan.

I don't know what our leaders are thinking. I think it's a question of false pride. We're ashamed to admit that the most shining star, biggest and best ever super star, hero to the world is flat broke and can't even afford to loan our neighbor a buck for a cup of coffee. That's why our vote is sooooo important. If you live in Mass. you had better cast your vote diligently or you have no right to complain. As for the rest of us? We'll be having a changing of the guard next year and we all need to show up

Obama is sending military and immediate aid of food and medical and has tasked 43 and 42 to get private DONATION$ for the rebuilding.  Clinton has been active in Haiti through the UN and his foundation for years.

Thanks for the answer and subsequent loss of appetite!  LOL  I've been considering learning a new language and had planned on Spanish but I'm wondering if shouldn't bone up on Chinese instead!

Yes, Obama has asked former Presidents to assist with collecting private donations for Haiti.  Maybe he should get 43 and 42 to begin collecting private DONATION$ for the rebuilding of our country.

The sad thing is that most American's don't realize any of this.  I hope that all make it out to vote in Mass. on Tuesday.  It's not just about 1 seat in the Senate!!!

I think it's fine for private citizens to donate monies to the Haiti, but I am against sending my grandchildren's tax dollars we are borrowing from China over there.  I actually gave a private donation on Sunday to help fund a young woman that I've known all her life who is a young nurse who is taking her vacation to go and help in Haiti.  I find that admirable and I'm not without compassion for their suffering.  But I'm also not nuts and don't think its America's job to care for the world.

Wallace, I'm all about private donations. HooRay for 42&43. That's exactly what they should be doing. But our government has no right to pledge money we have to borrow from a not too friendly nation and that our kids are going to have to pay back for the next two generations. It's one thing if we have a surplus but the sad reality is we don't. To borrow from Peter just to give to Paul is just plain insane period.

Spot on once again Susan. Why is it folks like you make so much more sense than our so called leaders. Go Mass.

Bill, If Mass sticks their head in the sand on this one we have no one to blame but our own ignorance and I pray for our kids future.

You said it all Tammy. Thanks for your comment.

Howdy Dale, Always nice to hear from you down home Southern Folk.
