10/10 Tango Man


Houston Texas is truly fucked by Harvey. Even more fucked than New Orleans by Katrina. Even more than Haiti.

Hang on! What’s Haiti got to do with it? Well, I started this blog in January 2010 because I was so incensed with the response to the massive earthquake that hit Haiti – particularly the way a bunch of so called ‘Christian’ Evangelists couldn’t get out of the country quick enough when the airport reopened. Then there was a ray of light…

The next day former US President Bill Clinton was spotted at Haiti airport helping to unload relief supplies from a cargo plane. No fanfare, no photo opportunity, no press announcement – just an ordinary bloke doing his bit who happened to be an ex-president of the USA. That’s the way to do it.

The other day Trump donated $1 million of his personal money to the relief fund. Now I realise that Trump has got a lot of money, but nevertheless it’s still a million dollars and it’ll help do some good. But Trump isn’t the richest guy in America by a long chalk, so where are rest of these preening posturing so-called philathropists? People like Gates and Zuckerberg who have one fuck of a lot more money that Trump.

Of course his opponents will say it’s posturing. After all, they’ll slag him off anyway whatever he does, so if he gave nothing it’d be wrong too. So why did he bother?

Well, it’s called leading by example and maybe, just maybe, it’ll shame some other filthy rich fuckers in America to follow his lead?

I’m not holding my breath…

  1. Just as well you’re not holding your breath. You don’t really expect all these liberal progressive Hitlery Clitpiece voting types to actually put their hands in the pockets and help our the deplorables do you?

    Nah thought not!

  2. I too was appalled by what happened in Haiti. The public gave millions in donations to help rebuild homes over there, and yet a year later I read in the press that the inhabitants of the island were still in tents. What happened to all that money?
