The Haitian government did exactly what I predicted. They just picked bodies along with Rubble and pretended that they have a clue about the number of death. This government is evil. They don't have any respect for people while they are alive. What will make me think that they will have respect for them when they are dead. They trying to cover up the way they treating the bodies, but they must be shocked to find out that CNN revealed their dirty secret.

The Haitians are a proud people. The world donations towards aid and rebuilding should also be given to the Haitian people for employment in rebuilding their country. The rebuilding of Haiti would be a healing process for these people; giving nourishment and some sense of closure to the horrific experience and loss, like turning the page of a book.

Less than a penny of each dollar the U.S. is spending on earthquake relief in Haiti is going in the form of cash to the Haitian government, according to an Associated Press review of relief efforts!

Two weeks after President Obama announced an initial $100 million for Haiti earthquake relief, U.S. government spending on the disaster has nearly quadrupled to $379 million, the U.S. Agency for International Development announced Wednesday.

That breaks down to $1.25 each from everyone in the United States.

Each American dollar roughly breaks down like this: 42 cents for disaster assistance, 33 cents for U.S. military aid, nine cents for food, nine cents to transport the food, five cents for paying Haitian survivors for recovery efforts, just under one cent to the Haitian government, and about half a cent to the Dominican Republic.

33 Cents on every dollar for US Military Aid and only 9 Cents for food?

There was NO US Military build-up in Haiti in 2007, where did all of the $208 Million American taxpayer dollars supposedly given to the Haitian people by Bush-Cheney for economic aid GO?

No one can ever expect a better life for themselves or for their loved ones before they first realize what they have already.. “An opportunity.” An opportunity to fallow the steps of Christ with all their hearts, mind, soul, strength.

Look at the number of homeless and starving Haitian people!

That is what the Republican Party is attempting to do to the American People. Those that crack are tossed into the largest prison system in the world, those that don't instead of Food, the Republican Party hands them worthless corporate vouchers!

I grew up in Haiti and just returned to work as a nurse after the earthquake. It was difficult to see my people's suffering but even more difficult to realize that the earthquake is only to be blamed for putting out our dirty laundry. The real blame can be put on the prior government officials from the last 60 yrs who stole and defrauded this once beautiful place of it's riches. They are to blame for causing a complete systemic failure, in my opinion they should all be charged with crimes against humanity for they have killed the Haitian people. sadly, Fabienne Goutier.

My wife and I gave to help with this tragedy in Haiti. The Haitians will move on to make the best life they can under the conditions they find themselves.
I do not have more money to help, but I do have a home and could take in two children as refugees/foster/adopt to give them a chance in life. I believe these children when they are educated and grow up will have the best chance at changing their countries future.
Let us do what we can to help all in need of help.

I’m very sorry for the victims in the Haiti tragedy, but has anyone stopped to think about the victims in America? There are hundreds of individuals who’ve been victimized here in these United States. One in particular, which I’ve spent several years supporting is a man named Barry Allan Beach. The State of Montana has wrongfully incarcerated this man for the last 27 years for a murder, which occurred in 1979 and the FBI proved he was not involved in!

How is it that so many care about sudden tragedy, but no one hears the cries of those who’ve been long suffering in our own country? Please lend a helping hand to Mr. Beach as he’s not had the opportunity to have what we all take for granted every day. is where you can lend your support and find out more information!

Hello Larry thank you for your show
I have something to say to the doctors and the people in Haiti they need to stop letting the doctors imput people because it seems like people that could of been healed normally because of a scratch the are imputing them specially children they need to stop and try to save as much as possible. I was listenning to this french nurse this morning crying in tears because of so many imputation that has been done for no reason kids that are able to get cured but to many american doctors are imputing the kids ... She said in quote nothing can replace a leg or a arm they need to stop!! please do something this whole generation is getting wiped out! Please help
