Holy Crap, Another Philanthropic Blog

Hurricane Katrina.

There, I've acknowledged it happened. Wait, no--not good enough in the U.S.; every individual sob story
(excuse me, I was listening to one of my favorite songs)

Whatever...I don't want to see any more shitty articles or whatever saying 'go donate! be nice!' It's not like the message's doing anything to help some poor guy who decided not to pay attention to the warnings telling him to get his goddamn ass out of the area (yeah, I know, home loyalty. w/e).

So yeah, either stfu or go there and do something useful. Even better, go do something in a country that has more important things to worry about than $5 gas. We are fucking pathetic. "Oh no, I can't drive my SUV everywhere!" YOU HAVE AN SUV? Actually, even a goddamn $9000 Kia is amazing. There are countries where *gasp* not everyone has a car--and it's not because they were following the Atkins diet and now need to lose weight; it's because they're POOR.

Not to mention that altruism is nonexistent in a country that offers massive tax breaks for donating money.

And here's a nice little email forward I got:
A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: "Would you please give your honest opinionabout solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

The survey was a huge failure: in Africa they didn't know what 'food' meant, in India they didn't know what 'honest' meant, in Europe they didn't know what'shortage' meant, in China they didn't know what 'opinion' meant, in the MiddleEast they didn't know what 'solution' meant, in South America they didn'tknow what 'please' meant....
And in the USA they didn't know what 'the rest of the world' meant.
