2010 HAITIAN QUAKE AFTERMATH: (Part 2) .... Do we ever get what we PAY for and ORDER? ....
Part two here of the "2010 Haitian Quake Aftermath" (part one here) is to take a brief look at what is happening nearly a half year later in Haiti after all we have contributed to make sure there is a smoother ride post devastation. I mean .... the people of not just USA, but even other countries around the world acted so quickly because they knew in a situation like this how quickly you must act. And many small donation's poured in from average working classes that dont even get a tax write off for their small donation's as the major companies do, because they dont earn enough to file a long form, since everyone love's the truth. It is almost sad that we even have to have this volunteer Mr. Sean Penn, to show us a real picture of the progress we are making, who if wasnt a celebrity wouldnt be no way heard beside's maybe a blog posting in the distance. I give much credit to Mr. Penn for actually speaking the truth of how complex this situation is, which shouldnt be after nearly a half a year of constant relief pouring into the system set up to help.
It make's one wonder perhap's "What are we doing inefficiently?" .... Well frankly the answer is "nothing" as far as what we the people are doing .... after all, like every other circumstance that is in need of dire immediate atencion .... we do all we can, and act quickly. The problem is obviously the people and/ or agencies that we have in place and support to handle our finance's and need's as usual. Showing once again that it is common ordinary people that make anything/ everything work, yet we have incompetent ruling power's handling everything from war's, to relief effort's, to our financial institution's, to even how we will be dealt with as far as health care. I mean .... do we ever get what we pay for and order?
What you see in this video below, there is simply no excuse being this far into the relief effort's and having more funding than they need from contributor's, to have this young 15 year old man die when the medication is widely available that could have prevented this. There is no financial excuse, you cant blame it on timing, because nearly a half a year is way long enough to have this in place, you cant say our military or gaurdsmen havent been acting .... Hell, they were in there pronto rounding up people as if it was an invasion damn near. Frankly, since truth is what people want, is the power's that control could give a rat's ass less if ten's of thousand's died from diphtheria, as long as it isnt something that will hamper their political goal's. And the only reason they allowed such quick occupation of force's, was to control crowd's, and lessen catastrophic chaos, since so many Haitian immigrant's are in America and it's going to be a tight election year. There is no excuse for any of this whatsoever but incompetence again from the top. And if thousand's die from widespread diphtheria, which the power's better hope doesnt happen ... it will be one more fork in the asses of the people who are getting more hip and keen by the day as to what dictate's how thing's are done.
Every tax paying citizen of this nation who donated their hard earned dollar's to this relief, should raise Holy Hell that this situation in Haiti is NOT at a different stage by now. And question any or what progress has been made. And if we are NOT getting efficient result's .... you fire and re-hire someone who can get the job done, the same way we are hired then discarded for the least little thing, you just dont let the same people/ agencies keep doing business the same ole same way. If we dont learn now, rest assured one day we will. We act quickly and efficiently when push come's to shove .... and so should those who act on our behalf, that is what they are paid to do. This is our own backyard .... a country in the America's, that are just like us, and in need of a hand.
Another thing to point out here, is that all the million's that have not been spent are making interest somehow, someone behind the scene's are doing something with that money, dont tell us it's sitting in some big Piggy Bank waiting to be spent. Mr. Penn point's out here first also that there are not enough vehicle's, why isnt there more? Why are we not buying up huge order's of basic/ standard 4X4 ATV type GMC Hummer's, that are designed to handle terrain's as such after a devastation like this? We certainly are not lacking fund's for it .... and at the same time it would be great for General Motors America and business, and help at least if not to create job's .... but to be able to keep those that we have in these production plant's.
