    •  They have my sympathy (0+ / 0-)

      I feel horrible for the plight of the ordinary people.  There, did a child magically get fed?  No?

      They don't need sympathy, they need money, and I just told you where it is.  If you're not interested in having the rich pay their fair share, then maybe you're fine with renewing the Bush tax cuts too?  If you're going to let spoiled rotten Saudi princes off the hook, why not?

      I'm not going to feel bad that I didn't send $20 that I don't have so that 3 months from now 3 cups of rice land at an airport and get stolen by thugs and warlords, when the rich Arabs right next door are doing nothing.

      The Saudi Royals have that $460 million lying around in spare change.

        in this country are sending money ... not just because it's Ramadan and it's part of zakat but because it's the right thing to do.

        Those warlords that you are ranting about... their people are getting help through this situation from the Pakistani Taliban

        sleep well

        •  Then I will judge them by their actions (0+ / 0-)

          Tell you what, if the Pakistanis keep the situation on the ground under control, if the relief aid doesn't get immediately stolen by thugs, and if the Taliban can show for one second that they're interested in more than just blowing people up, then I will scrape up $20 for the relief fund.

          Allah helps those who help themselves.

            anyone (Pakistanis) who was blown up in Pakistan by the Taliban?  hmmm?!  How do you know that those bombs haven't affected me personally?

            Allah also blesses those who help others.
