so why didnt you post about it?
are that you just want to bash the usa again?
and in my eyes yes
"so why didnt you post about it?"
I just did in case you didn't notice it.
(NT) good happy now?
Not at all
I am very sad for the thousands of people that have died! Are you?
so are you going to go
over there and help or just sit in your warm subsidized home and help?
ill answer that for you your not going to do squat, but bash the usa green with envy.
and in my eyes since we allways do more than our share when other countries need yes were better.
can you say that about trollsville?
We must be on the same brainwave length ...
... this morning, huh Mark?
Are YOU doing anything about it?
Bashing Americans isn't going to help them.
So what took YOU so long...
since you appear to have taken note of the earthquake yesterday?
Bait limited this early in the day?
Yes, it is sad and a nuisance but better them than us as we already have enough problems without reaching out for more. Their plight is rather low in the scheme of immediate and pressing concerns for AMERICANS.
I just know that you however have already donated huge amounts of money and blood to the Red Cross and have gone door to door among your neighbors and placed calls to your friend and that is why it took so long for you to bring it to our attention in such a ''Blame America First, last, and always'' manner.
My opinion of the answer you need -
(NT) OMG...spit pizza on monitor LOL
(NT) roflmao lol said it better than all
You're the man Ed!
"I just know that you however have already donated huge amounts of money and blood to the Red Cross and have gone door to door among your neighbors and placed calls to your friend and that is why it took so long for you to bring it to our attention"
You got it!
It's 8am on a Saturday ...
... earlier than that on the other coast. Why not just POST the info rather than trolling America bashing?
How dare you?
Troll when we talk human lives? Shame on you!
want to see shame look in your heart
your snipe about usa lives disgraced your post dont act the do gooder you started a flame and you get your troll reward
Yes it was more than your usual pathetic troll
Why didn't you post a link to the news story?
You only wanted to bash Americans.
At least she didn't say ...
that George Bush caused the quake.
Interesting! Your response...
is eerily similar to that of the under bridge dweller to Billy Goat Gruff.
Coincidence? I think not.
That's because Americans...
are scum! Greedy Capitalistic PIGS! Right, Tibbs? Tell it sister.
(NT) i think she did allready:)
My take would be that there are folks already
taking action somewhere. All you and I know is what is fed to us by the media. Personally, that food is too often improperly prepared, poorly seasoned, or missing essential nutrition. It's also way to easy to spend more time criticizing other's actions/inactions than silently implementing our own plans. Do what you think needs to be done yourself and stop looking around for idlers. My two cents.
theoretically, you're right
it was "yesterday"... although 10:30 - 11:00pm isn't exactly the time when people are glued to the news channels or a radio.....
but that doesn't bother you does it.....
you got a chance to troll away at everybody...
No, it is not. That's enough, Tibbs.
As it is Saturday morning, some folks sleep in.
Some are busy with weekend chores.
Some are taking their kids to sports practice.
Some are facing personal, family, or local problems.
Some are out doing community or volunteer work.
Many of us here are going through a grief process.
But you spent your morning looking for a way to snipe at and insult the USA. Worse, still, you used 2 tragic events as the basis for it.
How about sitting down and sending a check to the Red Cross, noting it be used for those 2 events? That does more good because it is used for what they need most.
If you are old enough, remember the earthquake in Mexico City, and then accuse the USA of not responding. Then there is the tsunami, and then accuse the USA of not responding. Chernobyl is another. And not long ago, the Russian sub (the British did arrive first).
We, on the other hand, are grateful to those foreign countries who send aid when tragedy strikes us. They do not think we value our lives more than others.

You'll recall the massive response to the Tsunami,
Tibbs -- that refutes your basic thesis, I think I suspect that realistically there wasn't much concern about Stan because it was only a category one, and most folks simply didn't hear about the Guatamalan tragedy -- it didn't get much press coverage. As for the Pakistan earthquake, we've already discussed the "dead zone" effect of events happening late Friday (or early Saturday) in terms of getting press attention, and hence public notice. In that vein, btw, at nominee (Finnegan?) for DOJ#2 who had ties to Abramoff withdrew his nomination late yesterday...

"most folks simply didn't hear about the Guatamalan tragedy -- it didn't get much press coverage."
That is precisely why I said what I said. It had nothing to do with the forum per se, but the media coverage! However a lot of people have been trying to turn this into some kind of trolling thing for some reason. Is it possible to tell them to quit that crap?
How much media coverage
did you allude to in your post when you refered to "posts" not being made? >>>Any posts about the thousands of people that may have died? Nope! When a hurricane hit NO we freaked out and started to collect charities and other things. And that is right to do! But in this case there isn't even a post about it or the least concern about the people.>>>>
I don't see a WORD in your post about "how come there was no media coverage".....you ONLY asked how come nobody HERE posted anything about those events.
I also ask...how much media coverage was given to these events by newspapers/television OUTSIDE of the USA?
Get real with your CYA explanations.....too little, too late.
That's NOT precisely why you said what you said!
You said that (at least you learned of it in the media so the word apparently got out) your complaint was that no one in the forums mentioned it, or donned earthquake gear and ran to Pakistan. The forums are not the Media. Now, you're trying to convince DK that you meant something entirely different than what you plainly said?
Sometimes when you find yourself in a hole, you should stop digging.

OK. I made a mistake!
In my first post I made a mistake, ok? Now let's move on to the topic. As a moderator that would be an easy task, wouldn't it?
(NT) You'd think so.
