The sad part is that with the words used any reasonable debate has been made impossible. I grant Trump a point, as he points out, that outside help is not lasting if the locals do not try to improve the conditions themselves and do not strive to need no help in the future. Too bad that this valid point was lost in ugly racist mumblings.
I’m sorry, what?
“Outside help is not lasting if the locals do not try to improve the conditions themselves.”
That’s the Republican theory of poverty, put very succinctly (I.e., that it’s their fault that they have horrible government).
And you say the above while rueing the end of civil discourse?
I’ll speak your language and confirm your prejudices by saying you’re a friggin idiot.
How about for the next big reality show we put Seahawk, NoTime, DF, Nikky V, and my old friend pvjin in the middle of a Port-Au-Prince ghetto without running water, electricity, an education, etc etc etc and see how they pull their selves up by their bootstraps.
At the end of the day, that’s life. Some people have the bad luck of the draw to be born in such circumstances. Other people have a much better luck of the draw. Only Seahawk and his friends would take an already hopeless enough situation and then extend to them the burden of fixing their entire country’s political system!
(BTW that sounds like an opinion.)
