Those smugglers should be let free,

with the condition to smuggle all the Haitians out of Dominicana.

Before the Haitians and their offspring,

annihilated the Dominican Republic,

as they have destroyed their own country.

We need a Haitian-tectomy.

Remove the Haitians,

and The Dominican Republic can then breathe again.

Over the past 100 years I would not say that Dominicans have had much opportunity to breathe...maybe a few...but not many. Thus what is your point about the Haitians???

My point is counted 6 billion times a year,

in the health care and education we provide for Haitians,

that are being spent by the Dominican government.

That is part of the tax money payment,

I personally contribute to make the life of poor Dominicans better.

My tax contribution is not to provide comfort for the Haitians people.

That is the responsability of the Haitian government, the United States,

and France, that created the demise of Haiti as a nation.

We Dominicans are a poor country with our own problems to deal with.

We cannot sustain the burden of the Haitian people any longer.

Now conveniently the US want to have Dominicans take care of the Haitians,

to avoid them from flooding their shores in Florida.

The DR survives solely on foreign money propping up the system, for whatever the agenda is. Pull out the investment and the IMF loans and the country goes poof.

Well, Punta Cana Mike,

The Haitians mass migration is not helping.

If Domiinicans are surviving on foreign money from the IMF, as you say,

then that is even worst.

That means, we are providing the Haitians with health care and education,

with the money we borrow from the IMF plus interest,

having the Dominican people pay it,

with taxes from their hard earned money.

Furthermore, by mortgaging our country,

we are robbing our children of their future,

so that we can care for our ungrateful neighbors.

That is a real crime !!

Now I am really upset PCMike !!!

Messed up my morning too . I have been wondering why the DR govt hasn't asked the international community to contribute to the care of the haitian refugees with all the money supposedly pledged to help the haitian people.

Or is that pledge money going to just support the lifestyles of the ngo's created to help the haitians but residing in DR?
