$100,000 of our money to Pakistan

By johnboy 15 September 2010 66

Chief Minister Stanhope has decided that you have been insufficiently generous to the nuclear armed terror sponsor state of Pakistan in it’s flood ravaged troubles.

Not to worry, he’s written a cheque for $100,00 on all our behalfs to correct our errors of judgment.

“I know that many Canberrans have already made personal contributions to victims of the floods, and I think it is fitting that the ACT Government also make a significant donation, on behalf of our city,” Mr Stanhope said today.

“As a community that has endured its own natural disaster not too many years ago, we know how important it is, practically as well as psychologically, to feel the compassion of others.

Just like a student association funding the PLO?

ACT Government funding foreign aid?

Really JB. If you were three feet away from a child dying in Pakistan right now, would you have the hide to tell the child’s parents that you believe they shouldn’t be helped by our government, and that you believe it is OK for their child to die — because their politicians are corrupt?
My guess is that you would be on the phone to Stanhope telling him to send more.

Extreemly well said.
Who gives a crap as to who’s kid it is? Which side of a line a villager comes from? What side of the sea some one dying of thirst is on? Or which imaginarfy friend they belive in? What is 50 cents or even $5 to me? I’m not going to begrudge the cost of a cheap hamburger if it will save some poor sod’s life. I’d like to think they would help me out if the situations was reversed but to tell the truth I don’t give to charity with an expectation of a return, but with an expectation that it will help out some poor sod who’s worse off than me.

The Pakis will put that money on sports bet and double it with 3 no balls and a dropped catch.

The people who need the money won’t get it.

Well said, I-filed. And to those who say we should be helping unfortunate people in our own country instead, I have one question. Do you? Or is it easier to be an armchair critic? (actually, that’s two questions…)
