The destructive power of earth which belittles anything in its path.Whether Earthquake, Flood, Hurricane, Tsunami, or Chuck Norris, Earth throws unstoppable forces which take down anything in their path. We have to hope that once the damage is assessed the proper aid would be sent from around the world. New Orleans has been in ruins for 5 years and we are yet to see construction of a new WTC. America's domestic issues have to be removed from Barracks shoulders so he can focus on other issues. CAN WE PLEASE DO SOMETHING PEOPLE! Does anyone think that the people could help out one another...dare I say that i think its time we actually unite the states of America?

"WHO" has paid these people is the question?Poor folks is the answer! We're robbing Peter to pay Paul, scrapping the bottom of the barrell to make ends meat and penny pinching to get by on a daily basis but they're "PAID"! The rich are getting richer and its at the expense of the poor (SAD BUT TRUE). My support to towards these people is very limited...I'm trying to get paid myself!
