8. They should pull themselves from the bootstraps
Edited on Wed Dec-29-04 10:38 AM by Julius Civitatus
and don't expect any guv'mint handouts, as any good Republicon would say. Grover "Palpatine" Norquist would not expect any less from red-blooded Murkans! Our tax dollars are there to take care of more important things, like starting unnecessary wars in the Middle East.

Now seriously, this tragedy is making the US look really bad. Our government pledged just a token amount for the relief efforts (had to be embarrassed into increasing that amount), and our government would not even take care of its own citizens stranded in the affected countries. Disgusting.
