and we are EXPECTING
now that is as many as died in the earthquake
and this is two years out from the earthquake
so I am no longer loving my life here
i was busy, you see, cleaning up the mess over here,.. what with the narco trafficantes and all
and i figured that what with ALL of you over there, SURELY you would have figured this one out?
I MEAN CHOLERA!!
which means that the rivers are polluted
which means that they need water
which means you must get up to the head of the water and run pipes
but leonel is so busy handing out contracts
and the red cross is so busy figuring out how to protect their income stream
and paul farmer is so busy with his publicity machine
and mickey is so busy having cocktails with sean penn
that i have bought a boat
kiss my ass i bought a boat
i am goin out to sea

where are you getting the 200k figure from?
Sounds a bit old testament for such a small country.
I have not been on Corbett's list for some time - getting most of my news through Facebook these days.

pedro.. there was a huge scream out on the 200k figure but do know or expect that it was publically released....but that is the figure

if you follow along the time line of my blog you will see that i was working first with the Haitians up in LT who had kwashikoor last summer.. then with Interpol on the narcotrafficantes from August til Dec... so I really had had no time to check on Haiti . I just assumed what with all that talent and brains and money combined, some sort of progress was being made.
But I can never underestimate the stupidity of men sitting inside of rectangles. Instead of progress, we have moved backwards.
Now we have the sole figure of the remants of the Haitian state tottering.
About 15000 armed, uniformed, unidentified mercenary reportable to no known person roaming the streets and the entries to public buildings
and the Haitian government is launching a logo campaign for tourism
The radical leftest priest is rumbling revolution again
the drug dealer trained in Ecuador is right beside him
MINUSTAH having brought Cholera to the Island, continues to deny any responsiblity and continues to occupy at great international expense, importing its food from the Dominican Republic, occupying the best hotels in Ft Liberte, flirting on the internet,
Relief net posts ALL the cholera treatment centers from all aid workers who are set up in place to deal with the victims who will surely come
the red cross used its 10 million dollar donation to buy prime land downtown where it plans to build a hotel to ensure its income stream
the top missionary is selling recycled garbage clothing on vogue
the best plan so far is for a korean sweat shop with workers housing with pit toilets
sure is lucky that none of that aid money fell into the hands of WYCLEF
he might have misued it

Foreign aid has been flowing into Haiti for 80 years.
Perhaps it is not working?

it is not the size of the aid budget
it is their inability to figure out how to use it
the aid organizations are top down, militaristic, patriarchal
one of the very first consulants into Haiti
called in by the OAS
took time to make a date over the internet with a whore
fortunately,l he was kidnapped, his driver was killed, and he was held for 75k ransom.
this aid thing is a racquet.. just another form of colonization
where the rich people get donations and hire folks from Urugauy to do the work on the ground
the big nations contribute no boots on the ground
the only white skin that is broiling in the sun is IRISH
That is what i see
Everyone but the IRISH are absent
did i say
