30. I think what he is stressing is the fact that
so much aid has been poured into Haiti over the years and yet the people are living in abject poverty
with cardboard and oil can tin homes.

What he doesn't mention unfortunately is that the IMF has already extended a $1,000,000 loan to Haiti.
Just what they need, more oppressive debt. France charged them reparations of $67,000,000,000 when
they won their independence. It wasn't paid off until sometime in the early part of the last century and
contributed to their many years of hell.
