Haitians Protest Bush, Clinton in Port-au-Prince
Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton visited Haiti on Monday in their roles as co-chairs of the US relief effort there. Dozens of Haitians took part in a protest in the capital Port-au-Prince to denounce the former presidents’ policies toward Haiti while in office. Bush cut off desperately needed aid to Haiti and backed the overthrow of Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Bush’s father, former President George H.W. Bush, supported the first coup against Aristide in 1991. Clinton, meanwhile, helped restore Aristide, but only on condition that he accept harsh neoliberal reforms. Protester Elizabeth Pierre singled out Bush, who was making his first-ever visit to Haiti.

Elizabeth Pierre: “I hear that former President George Bush is here. I am asking President Clinton to excuse himself so I can talk to George Bush, because George Bush is President Aristide’s kidnapper.”

With all due respect ... the most respect one can muster ... i ask ... can beggars be choosey?

If my children and I, and all of our neighbors, are starving, dying, hungry, buried under rocks, not able to help our selves ... and your Family (USA) sent some help, set up specifically by the Family Leader (President Obama) ... but the Brothers sent to facilitate that help (Clinton Bush), had done us wrong before ... and we don't necessarily like them ... so i'm wondering ... does that put me in a position to insist that some different Brothers come to feed and save us, not these ... or ... is it okay if i ... do all I can to disrespect the show of help from the Leader of the Family (Obama) ... by disrespecting those he sent ... possibly hindering not only myself, my children, but also my neighbors ... from receiving help we can't provide to our selves.

That's krazee to me.

If your help offended us so ... then graciously say no to it all ... but to pick apart the help ... "I want this, but I don't want that" ... well, i just wasn't raised like that.

President Obama asked them to do this, and they agreed. Instead of seeing it as belittling to yourself, consider it belittling to Bush. This is his first time ever visiting the country, so the article says. There are usually several ways one can look at a thing, and I encourage us all, to look at them in ways that empower us / you.

Take the help, feed your people, shelter them, clothe them ... drink from this cup, for it is yours ... live to see another day ... then fix it so it never happens again.

We can't save our selves ... but we wanna be able to tell others how to save us?

I don't get it.

:heart:
