Is any one else embarrassed by the way our fellow Americans are acting so greedy and selfish towards the US trying to help the Haiti's?

I don't get embarrassed by other people's selfish ways the same way I don't take credit for others' selfless acts.  We do what we can and hope others will as well.

I agree ...... to an extent.

I believe it is awesome to help the people of Hati. (Haitians? I dont know) bringing them over to the US so they can have clean water to drink and better food to eat is great. people flying over to help is GREAT.... If I could do it right now, I would.

BUT I dont think our country should be giving millions when we dont even have it.

Im, Laura. I hope you learned that from my screen name. If not, well now you know. I live in Alaska. I'm not gonna lie, I'm a Snow Ninja. Although, my day job consists of standing outside in front of my igloo looking like Igloo Trash in my snow boots, seal skin tank top & short skirt and screaming profanities at my neighbors. I'm marvelous, I know. I have a daughter named Lorelai. I can only hope one day she is just like mommy. Her daddy is Chris and together we make one big family of Igloo trash. Be Jealous.

It's rather disheartening, disgusting, sad, embarrassing. I don't think there are enough negative adjectives.

I have a great idea. Let's bring all the hatians here and whoever has a problem with it can go to Haiti.

Honestly I am PROUD of how our private charities and private individuals have stepped up to offer aid, not only finacial, but on the ground help.

I would rather have that then government aid....it goes more directly to the people, and isn't my tax dollars (or China's money) that we are already overspending in other areas.

I think it is fine to send aid but I don't understand where it is going to come from? Also I am wondering why we are not hearing anything about the other side of the island. They were hit by the same earthquake but nobody has even given an update on how they are doing. I find it unecessary that Planned Parenthood is asking for federal funds to pass out condoms to the people in Haiti. Ok send money, food, troops, etc...but we really need to send condoms? With taxpayer money?

I picked other! I am not embarrassed or surprise or anything, even if I don't  necessarily agree! I have been on CM  long enough to see Americans at it's finest toward other Americans. Calling ppl names, calling someone a murderer and so forth.

True Americans on CM! Don't agree, bash someone!
