Millions not Billions.

We are talking basic human needs here. While I feel bad for kids in Florida without coats most of them have shelter and water and are not on the verge of dying.

While I can certainly understand an "America First" attitude......this goes beyond politics and money and becomes an issue of humanity.

Nope,it seems they didnt..one child was sent to school wrapped in a blanket..I find that as sad as Haiti.

I never had a winter coat when I lived in Charleston, and I was well off...not having potable water is on another level.

U find a kid having to wear a blanket to school every once and a while more sad than what's happened in Haiti? With all the death and destruction?

Am I misunderstanding you?

So nobody could give the kid a lift in a heated car or bus, so he could spend a grand total of 30 seconds outside in the "freezing cold".....my Chicago living ass laughs out loud.

Seriously dude.

The people of Port-au-Prince are in a Dante-esque hell, not mildly uncomfortable until the jet stream bubbles back up.
