Isn't this what Nato is for?

We have lots of forced charitable donations courtesy of the government. I'd rather see my money go to help the Haitians than some of his other recent "giveaways."

Look at TARP. Glad those bankers can still get multi-million dollar bonuses! Woo! I was really scared for them!

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to knock off several IQ points, never pay attention to the news and only care what happens on "American Idol" and on the daily soap operas. Perhaps I would be much happier and worry less! There's something to be said for being an "idiot."

Haiti doesn't deserve one single more cent from this country. They have squandered millions, if not billions, of aid and relief over the years. The people of Haiti swim in a cesspoll.

Heil Gpsma!

Then what should we do? Spend the money on gas chambers to exterminate these "useless eaters" a la Der Fuhrer?
