We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's a good cause. Roll them a coin if you can, and tell friends who might be interested. It's not an app, it's a phone feature. God bless those who put their time, brains, and energy into such positive and inventive pursuits.
Few of us in the First World have any idea what it's like out there. And still people in America complain about medical care. They always will. Prosperity and the world's best medical care have turned us into babies.
"Prosperity and the world's best medical care have turned us into babies."
Once upon a time, America started from farther back than these people and by dint of hard work and much good fortune our forefathers got us to where we are today. These people had the advantage of the progress that was forged elsewhere in the world and by dint of persistent corruption and great misfortune and miscalculation have managed over the years to run that process in reverse. Without casting any aspersions on the good work or intentions of the group you've highlighted in your post, BD, but IMO Haiti is a never ending black hole for First World relief aid, too often given out of guilt I suspect. Ditto for Africa relief efforts. I used to donate regularly and generously to Doctors Without Borders but eventually decided they devoted too much effort to Africa and too little to other regions around the globe that were equally deserving and more receptive to solutions. I therefore decided my charity dollars would instead stay at home in service of needy groups within the US.
