    I'm sure everyone has seen the destruction caused by the earthquake in Haiti yesterday. I'm posting this just to encourage everyone to donate what they can, any bit helps.

    A few charities I would recommend donating to:
    Oxfam
    Red Cross
    Medicins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders

    Also, if you are in the US and have a cell phone, you can test HAITI to 90999 which will donate $10 to the Red Cross and add it to your next cell phone bill.

    Any amount helps. If everyone in the world took the money that they spend on Starbucks lattes and other useless shit in one week and donate it to relief efforts instead, it would make a huge difference.

    Dude used money from his own charity to pay himself for appearing at a benefit concert he helped organize. Now that's a scumbag.

    Limbaugh and Robertson are both worthless pieces of shit. There's a special spot in hell for them and I hope they both arrive there soon. They waste oxygen every time they open their mouth and they serve no purpose on this planet.

    Haiti has been hit AGAIN by another earthquake, this time a 6.1.

    From my local news site:

    FOND PARISIEN, Haiti -- As relief efforts continue in Haiti, another earthquake has rocked the island nation.

    A 6.1 magnitude quake hit at about 6:00 this morning, 35 miles northwest of Port-au-Prince.

    WFMZ's Jaccii Farris and photojournalist Lee Jenkins are at the Love a Child Clinic in Fond Parisien,Haiti.

    They were sleeping when this morning's earthquake hit. She called into 69 News this morning to describe what happened.

    It's been just more than a week since the initial earthquake hit Haiti.

    An estimated 200,000 people were killed, and three million are in need of aid.
