Like the Apple iPhone, in the UK there's a 'tax' for everything. See what I did there?!

And some of the comments here are either searching for a bite or are just plain ignorant ...
+1. It's the easiest thing in the world to find a reason not to help someone, but sometimes you have to do what is morally right despite your doubts about how it will work out. I give money to street people even though one could argue that maybe they will use it in ways that will harm them. That's their choice - it's not for me to tell them how to live their lives, but it's a good thing to give them an opportunity to make a choice. It is morally right to help people less fortunate than oneself, but to me it's repugnant to stand in judgment on them.

This forum, which has an amazing and unusual ethos of helpfulness, also has an undercurrent of right-wing political tub-thumping. I find that pretty unpleasant and inappropriate. I thought that one of the forum rules was not to discuss politics, amongst other potentially inflammatory topics?

clunkfinsh, it is sad that you feel this way about the members of this Forum. It goes to show that you are just their opposite.

Just because they do not agree with your line of thinking does not mean they are bad or indifferent people. I think you owe them an apology. We cannot all agree, but we do not have to resort to name calling. This type of statement can only lead to name calling, and bad feelings.

I am one who believes that the UN has no right whatsoever to generating a tax on anything; period. They are not a governing body, hence, no right to taxing the world.

I feel the US needs to get out of the UN and the UN needs to get out of the US.

There, I said it.
I have thought that same thing....if nothing else, at least get out of the Middle East.

sorry, rant over back to being a housewife
I wonder how much of this Haiti money is really getting to the people that need it. This is a great opportunity for the scam artists to come out of the woodwork.
