When Mother Nature speaks in this fashion, were are but a speck of dust on the hind quarters of a elephant.
I have often wondered the cost of removing all that oil from the ground. The fluid that is found in between joints, Sinovial Fluid, protects the joints and keeps the moving parts from destroying themselves during motion. I still wonder if there is some kind of connection to oil production and earth quakes.
And now a Rant, I heard a speach this morning by some United Nations PINHEAD
slighting the US in regards to being stingy. The US has given already some 15 Million in funds, Several Military flights of C130 full of aid type materiels, ect...
Doesn't this horse's ass realize that when it comes to aid for foreign countries that the US has been Jonny on the Spot for so long our shoes are worn thin running to the bank and back again??? Let's see just what the REST OF THE WORLD can come up with to help these poor people. Then we can talk. Until then, Besa Me Coolo Por Favor.
