if...

you are going to be an asshole that thinks we should be sending money to our own country instead of haiti then:
  • stop overpopulating our country
  • take the money you would use to have that 7 millionth kid and instead support an american citizen
  • volunteer daily in your community to end homelessness, fight hunger, educate people
  • sale your house and move into a smaller one
  • don't buy new clothes and donate the the money saved to a homeless shelter
  • go live in a third world country with your7 million children and don't ask for help when a horrible disaster hits you
  • drink tainted water and turn off all electricity and open all the windows
  • don't complain
  • stop watching tv and eating shit and teach your fucking children to volunteer locally
  • go on a mission trip with your family to build a community with habitat for humanity
  • stop bitching
you want to help this country, which i agree needs help, shut the fuck up and stop posting shit on your facebook and go DO something about it.  being a jerk does nothing.  stirring up controversy only solidifies the nagging thought in the back of my mind that my life is so much better now that you are not a part of it.

thanks. i didn't leave a bio. so here it is:

Erin is a guest author who is an opinionated mother of two. She is a liberal at heart and doesn't mind the term bleeding heart liberal to describe her since that means she obviously has one, whereas, apparently, many don't these days.

Thanks for letting me purge!!!

Seriously... the fact is, there will always be someone to help, at home or elsewhere, but it doesn't mean we should ignore elsewhere, particularly when the situation is so dire. And yes, there are groups that need helps in the US, and there are monetary/time contributions to those groups every.single.day. Just because they aren't getting the same exposure as Haiti contributions--which again, at the moment is dire, so of course it is in the spotlight--doesn't mean they aren't present and meaningful contributions. I agree, if you have a problem with where assistance efforts are currently being channeled, then pick your cause, support it, and shut the hell up.
