The Greatest Jeneration points out that while the death toll on the Sunami business keeps getting higher, the bright spot is Amerca’s bellying up to the bar… so far there’s on the order of 80 million in PRIVATE donations…. a figure that leads the world… as usual. Shocked? Amazed?  Jen isn’t. I’m not, either. Nor, I suspect, are you.

So when you hear people screaming about the small amounts donated to deal with the issue, remember this one. And remamber…what they’re really on about is we’re not falling in line behind the UN having totall control.

And ask them; is this about helping the people who need it, or giving the corrupted UN greater control?

They won’t answer directly. But, the annoyed spluttering should tell you VOLUMES.
