    Gee Marty, i'd be willing to overlook the sharpie thing if the US were to start pouring relief into Bermuda. I might even have something nice to say about SOPET if he were to turn on the aid too. And if Howdy Doody wants to back him up I'm sure I could spare a kind word for him as well.
  • Thanos: As a Commonwealth member the Bahamas should be getting a wide range of help from the others. Hopefully Boris Johnson doesn't pull a Trump, say "Britain's doesn't have enough money to help!", and fuck them over for laughs the way the US did to Puerto Rico. At least, regardless of what happens, the Bahamians will hopefully be spared the obscene photo-op spectacle of some douche politician tossing paper towels into a crowd and then congratulating himself on what a hero he is.

    Why ?
    Bermuda is it's own sovereign country, should have it's own plans.
    And it's a Commonwealth member, if anyone should be dumping money into relief,
    don't you think it should be.. us ?

    But again, sovereign country, some of the highest GDP in the area.
    They should know better, it's not like hurricanes are a new thing.

    Why is it so many people always slamming the USA all over the place,
    but when something happens, oh they all come crying and shouting for money ?

    That's all fine and dandy, but how in the hell do you 'plan' for a Category 5 hurricane? Do you not understand the devastation that kind of storm brings? The USA itself has 'plans' for when hurricanes hit the Eastern seaboard, but would be completely inefficient under an assault from a Category 5 storm, which would wipe ANYTHING out in it's path, as we have seen countless times already.

    I've never been big on giving foreign aid out for no reason, but a C5 hurricane that almost wiped them off the map? That is as good a reason as any. Commonwealth countries should be stepping up, if not for the Commonwealth, then for helping other human beings in need.

    All the GDP on the planet won't save you when Mother Nature gets pissed off.

    If you have a better 'plan', we're all listening.
