    Fair enough. Donations and the logistics thereof can be complicated. I've also read that CPB claims they have plenty of soap and such that they've purchased. So the question becomes why aren't they providing it to the kids? Is it "Heckuva Job Brownie" style incompetence, or Stephen Brown style maliciousness? Hopefully inquiring minds in Congress will conduct investigations to find out.

    Sigh. Yes.

    Alan, they should be reporting the difference between what is being spent instead of being misleading. Still soap, toothpaste anyone?

    My theory is that people with advanced empathy genes really enjoy displaying them. Misleading news reports make them happy and as long as there's a market for misinformation, it will be filled.

    I know my takes on the United States have made me less than popular with some folks on this board. So I'll just calmly and collectedly ask one thing: Is this this country we want the United States to be? Rob

    What is “this?”

    To respond to your question calmly and collectedly, I would like to see everyone here in this country be here through legal means.

    You need to take your blinders off.

    OK, thanks for the input.

    I can understand the confusion, if you look to the left of this post, you'll notice the big black glasses where blinders would normally be. Those are readers which I find useful for looking more closely at things others won't. I'll keep those if you don't mind.

    Distorting the facts doesn’t make me happy and it’s condescending for you to assert that empathetic people are disingenuous.

    It seems all of could agree on one thing - children should not be kept in cages, should not be denied clean clothing and diapers, and should have adults and not other children looking after them.
