    OF course we all pray for the people of Haiti at this time..but prayer in the sense of fellow humans comuserating with them for the loss of loved ones and hoping the survivors do survive--but be realistic-donation money to relief efforts will do more good than anything an uncaring "LORD" will do in this situation.. LOOK-IF there is a GOD,HE (IT) might have set the laws of tectonic plate movement for hHIs planetary creation-but after that those laws take over-nothing more HE can do about it...When you live in an Earthqake zone,the statistical probabilities take over -GOD is out of the picture...HE did not cause this event,nor did He care to prevent it...HE also NEVER promised us a Heaven but his PR sinmeisters delude us into thinking we'll earn Heaven brownie points if we HELP the poor victims of such catstrophe's-we should HELP them not because of such delusion,but because its our HUMANELY duty of our fellow humans ...in that sense we humans are better than the Big Fellow Upstairs.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
