  1. Wot?
    No comment??
    I hope that all the money donated is accounted for publicly, I learnt my lesson after the first Tsunami when I learnt that a lot of the donated money was used by local big business and politicians to force the original landowners, the few who were left in order to build hotels and private homes.
    We have organized for two members of our community to fly out with locally donated money to buy and distribute what is required when they find out the most pressing needs, then come back and account to us, so that we can either repeat the same process again or if we are lucky, will have identified a means of delivering aid to the people who actually need it.

  2. Don’t list.en to 99% of the music. Also Crabapple is right. Most of the time in these situations the money never goes fully to help the people, but into the pockets of those who claim they are helping.

  3. We have been down this path, on many occasions in the past.

    The We Are The World fundraiser event perfectly illustrates liberal entertainment hypocrisy. It is the perfect example of liberal greed and liberal refusal to get their hands dirty, put some skin in the game, and contribute their own wealth.

    The WATW entertainers sang a song which they sold to their fans. They raised $27,000,000 from the sales of their song. At that time, WATW entertainer Michael Jackson’s financial worth was approximately $2,000,000,000 (2 billion dollars). WATW entertainer Paul McCartney’s financial worth was approximately $1,500,000,000 (1.5 billion dollars). The aggregate financial worth of all of the WATW entertainers was approximately $10,000,000,000 (10 billion dollars). If each and every WATW entertainer had contributed one-percent (1%) of their financial worth, then they would have provided $100,000,000 to the cause. This is four times as much as they raised from the sales of their song. If each and every WATW entertainer had contributed ten-percent (10%) of their financial worth, then they would have provided $1,000,000,000 (1 billion dollars) to the cause. This is forty times as much as they raised from the sales of their song. But, liberals don’t believe in giving their own money to a cause or getting their hands dirty or putting skin in the game. It is beneath them.

    Enough money exists in all of professional entertainment, professional sports, and professional automobile racing to solve all of the social issues of poverty, hunger, homelessness, and uninsured health in America. However, professional entertainers and athletes and auto racers are too selfish and greedy to give their wealth to social causes. They insist on using the government mandate to take money from you and me to solve these problems.

  4. I live in the Philippines and the typhoon affected area and I know that the first people to get relief or jobs will be the relatives of the politicians and the law enforcement.

    Do you know what % of money and relief actually gets to those who need it… EarthCoco does
