Bin Laden has been on the Haliburton payroll for years. Whenever Congress starts wanting to cut the contracting budget, OBL makes a new tape, and tada we have continued funding.

It lost any sway it could have had over me when the little girl was bitching, quite eloquently, about her toys being destroyed. TOYS! Sunglasses, necklaces, bracelets.

She's a well-fed, well-dressed, well-spoken little consumer complaining about a bomb hitting her home. She spoke about garbage, about "things!" She has a wardrobe!! She asked questions, made clever observations.

That little girl is as smart, as educated, as safe, and as healthy as any American child I've ever met. Her little sweater is adorable. Children living in terrible living conditions do not have adorable sweaters, toys, sunglasses, bracelets, food, drawers for storage, necklaces or rings.

She's a flippin' princess. If they want pity, they need to show us the damaged children-- not JonBenet fuggin' Palestine stomping and whining about her trinkets.

I don't know a thing about the region, and I'm an isolationist, so that colors how I'd respond to this, but it just seems like when the ghetto expands and takes over your neighborhood, you get to move or live with what it's become. Why are these people fighting over the ghetto? Is there not a nicer, newer suburb to move to?

Well, my children are also well-fed, well-spoken little consumers and will certainly complain about a bomb had it hit their home. I will complain, too. You make it look like it's OK to have people's home hit with a bomb just because they're well-fed, well-dressed and well-spoken. I can't understand your argument in another way.

Maybe you think hers are the fancy stuff you'd find in a department store. They're definitely not. The last time I've been to Gaza Strip was when I was about 12 years but the misery is still engraved in my memory. It was Eid (Our big feast as Christmas) time and kids would get presents and sweets and new clothes. Parents would buy these things for their kids but the affordable, and therefore available, variety was of the worst ever. Cheap toys that cost a dollar to make hundreds of is the norm. The world dumps its worst products there and elsewhere where poverty and/or instability prevail.

She may look smart and healthy and most likely goes to school but.. safe? A rocket had targeted her home and you call this safe? You mean she should die or get injured? She was lucky to escape that attack. Do you guarantee her safety next attack?

OK. I'll post some pictures soon. But it's not pity we want. We want some sympathy. Compassion. Understanding. These people are victims of a brutal war machine that attacks and then cries if a stone is thrown on it.

Unfortunately, there isn't.

Shane,

It takes some effort to avoid the "I'm-super" mentality and a lot of courage to admit it.

If you feel that bombproof homes, food, water, warm clothing in good repair, toilets, trash collection, trinkets and education aren't enough-- Make up the deficiency you feel is present. Change the lives of generations by standing up, demanding and enacting change! Make it better! Import better trinkets. Move them to safety. Give concessions to the attacker and ensure future generations safety if it's so dire that you're posting little hurtful propaganda films on the internet because it's so bad.

Call Sally fuggin' Struthers.

Just know that you're making a fool of yourself coming to a Mercedes-Benz message board-- a message board you use to discuss your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL-- complaining about how your children aren't living well.

This may be anecdotal, but you know what? My family lived in a little metal box during some lean years in the 1980s. We drove around in a little Chevrolet Citation II and we ate a lot of meatloaf. We moved across the nation to do better, and have.

About a decade ago, Birmingham city closed a large housing project and flooded the nearest dense-residential areas with quite a number of impoverished families and the unsavories that cling to them. All affordable housing near our schools and employment went Section 8, and we had to move because we were no longer welcome in the community we'd lived in for years.

Off to another townhouse for a few more years, just a little farther from the city and services, but safer, we thought. Those same unsavory types committed homicide two doors down just 24 months after moving to this new, safer area. We packed up and moved once more.

This time it took; we'd found a wonderfully safe, beautiful area full of gorgeous, warmhearted people to call home. That place is hundreds, thousands of miles from the places of our births-- even further from our ancestral homes.

All I'm saying in this is that my family have given up their homes and dreams for generations so the next could find safety enough to chase their own future. They gave up their homelands and found happiness and riches for their own-- Admitting defeat and succeeding in light of that can be a wondrously beautiful thing.

I was never attacking you-- it's just plain silly to stay in a neighborhood where you've got to dodge bullets. Why are you so worried about staying in this neighborhood?
