Thanks, darkstar218, for bringing this to my attention:
From the Chicago Sun-Times comes this gem from Teresa “I’ve got so many houses, I can’t remember where I left my toothbrush” Heinz Kerry:
‘Let them go naked’
Teresa Heinz Kerry, encouraging volunteers as they busily packed supplies Wednesday for hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean, said she was concerned the effort was too focused on sending clothes instead of essentials like water and electric generators. ”Clothing is wonderful, but let them go naked for a while, at least the kids,” said Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. ”Water is necessary, and then generators, and then food, and then clothes.”
I would like to know what Terayza has done to lessen the suffering of the storm survivors? She could buy out the entire clothing section of a Wal-Mart store to give to those people and not even notice a dent in her wallet, allowing others to focus on the water, generators, and food that she’s so worried about. Or, send over a few Sparkletts trucks loaded up with bottled water, Sears generators, and grocery suppy trucks . . . and let the volunteers focus on the clothing.
This is what burns me up about rich liberals. They sit on their pedestals criticizing the good-hearted efforts of volunteers and rather than jumping into the fray to make up the difference where there may be lack . . . they prioritize what the volunteers should be focusing on. Because as we all know, liberals are MUCH smarter than the average joe. And they are quite adept at telling the average joe what he should be doing . . . with his time, his money, his life . . .
