World Bank/IMF softening tone on 3rd World “debt”?

Maybe. At least in the case of Romania. One of those nations whose debt was incurred by former governments. Is it a response, directly, to the tragedy of Haiti?
Or even partly. Since THE major reason one earthquake has destroyed that nation internally, was the massive debt being collected off the backs of the People of Haiti. Think not? Notice, if you will, that the Dominican Republic, who occupy the other side of the island of Hispaniola, aren’t the ones who are the focus of world attention. Because?…

Perhaps it’s because the Dominican Republic wasn’t hit nearly as much by the prior economic disasters visited on Haiti, not by any lack of resources to sustain their people, but because those resources weren’t being (mis)managed by the World Bank/IMF, following two centuries of Colonial Powers including the U.S. mismanaging those resources.

Debt forgiveness is something the U.S. government ought to be looking at very closely now, (since both World Bank and IMF are top-heavy with American bankers).

We’ve already had several disasters from which we’ve used all our credit to “pay” for the relief thereof.
The Iraq-Afghanistan Occupations, for instance, the very much related Levee Rupture at New Orleans, a tornado in Kansas that destroyed a whole town, with no immediate relief on both those cases because the resources including trained first responders were Occupying Iraq and Afghanistan… suddenly resources not available.

The drought across Texas and the rest of the “Breadbasket”. No reserves to fall back on now. The debt for the bonds used to finance the Occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, supposedly without a tax increase, especially on those American Corporations who were the sole beneficiaries of the Iraq and Afghanistan conquests.
The first of those bonds are coming due this year. Most of them aren’t owned in America. China and Russia own quite a huge lot of them.

Our own national debt is about to hit Crisis Point. National credit rating? we don’t HAVE one. Iran and Venezuela have better credit now than we do.

    I gotta hand it to you, BJ, your commentaries are so mind numbingly stupid that they actually seem to defy the laws of gravity even!

    ‘World Bank/IMF softening tone on 3rd World “debt”?
    By Brother Jonah NOT MY TRIBE -Maybe. At least in the case of Romania. One of those nations whose debt was incurred by former governments.’

    What ? How? Why? BJ, out of the sale ol’ religious order of the OldTribe Democratic Party voter douchebag writer’s bloc can’t ever bother with linking to any What in the Hell reportage he writes off about from the top of his empty head. How dopey us, Jonah! You duh expert on Romanian debt and IMF if we haven’t a clue to what set off this scree of writing material by your own genius self?

    We continue further with this same level of douchebag idiocy by BJ…

    ‘Is it a response, directly, to the tragedy of Haiti?

    Silly us! I thought geological fault lines and seismic tremors had something to do with it? But Clown Righter Brother Jonah has it all figured out, IB sure! The Haitians just owed the bank some money! I was geologically wrong sez this genius, BJ

    ‘Think not? Notice, if you will, that the Dominican Republic, who occupy the other side of the island of Hispaniola, aren’t the ones who are the focus of world attention. Because?…”

    Could it have anything to do with the seismic tremors having happened underneath the capital of Haiti instead of inside your nonsensical head, underneath your dumbass or underneath the far away Dominican Republic, Jonah? I mean that might have a tad to do with why nobody is really paying attention to the Dominican Republic like Dufus Dumbass you are, BJ??? Duh… When you going to think, Bud? Hispaniola is a big island and you are a big idiot!

    I can’t go on with how dumb Jonah gets. He just is not even alligned with reality.

    Dude… While at times the Democratic Party does have some progressive implementations of morality, law, decency… and the Republican party seldom does, this isn’t by necessity a Democratic PARTY website. Rush Limbaugh is not being persecuted here, nor is the Republican Party, nor are YOU. I don’t have the authority to remove any comments save those directed to posts I myself have made. You might notice, if you actually read anything, that most of your personal attacks have been directed my direction. I have never once removed any comments to anything.

    Is that the persecution you so badly resent, that Not My Tribe has graciously allowed you to post your complex rantings that somehow this is a Vast Democratic Party Conspiracy to defame some amorphous unknown and unknowable politcal movement? Since you claim not to work on behalf of the Republican party.

    Yes, we do shoot back at the Republicans. Because the Republicans fire a shot across our bows virtually every hour. We’ve been called traitors and threatened with everything from beatings to hanging for not going along with the Republican line.

    The Democratic party, even though we’ve disagreed vehemently with their policies and actions an many occasions, have never threatened us with death, never had the Colorado Springs Police beat us up in the streets, none of that.

    (although when I was 7 years old a Democratic Mayor of Chicago DID sic the Pigs on us… but I was in Del Rio Texas at the time and didn’t even hear about it.)

    The Democratic Party doesn’t even arrest Right Wing Terrorists who show up outside meetings involving President Obama with nooses and carrying Submachine Guns.

    Quite a large difference between that and George W and Sarah Palin and McCain having people arrested for showing up wearing tee shirts and carrying signs. If noticing that and actually reporting that fact makes you uncomfortable, then go haunt Rush Limbaughs website.
    Just, you know, expect to be Blacklisted from posting not only to his site but a long list of Republican and “libertarian” websites.

    I don’t mind responding to your Hate writings, it gives our more Normal readers something reasonable to read, and counters the impression your curses and maldictions would leave, that this is somehow a Hate Site.

    However, I don’t actually own the website. I don’t pay for the web hosting nor for the inevitable expense of repairing the website whenever some Right Wing Lunatic figures out a way to hack a password or two.

    The owner might decide that he’s not going to spend his money and time hosting Hate Speech Rants. I wouldn’t blame him, although I suspect you would scream that it’s Censorship or some other form of persecution. That would be a quality you share with the Republican Party and, you share it and share it and share it.
    I personally don’t see where you, personally, are harmed by anything written on this site. Nor, for that matter, how it would harm anybody else. If you feel I’ve damaged you in some way then take the issue to court.

    Other than that, I’m content to allow you to elevate yourself to the level of Christ on The Cross in terms of your Persecution Complex. You mock your own viewpoints by doing so.

    We’re not heavily into censorship. We prefer to leave that to The Other Side. (whoever they are, it’s not a specific thing, you know) because there’s a certain philosophy involved. Free Speech. (although the site does cost actual Cash Yankee Money and the web hosting doesn’t accept anything different in terms of payment.) It’s been a nice free ride for you here, hasn’t it?

    You might, if you grow some manners and civility, thank Eric for allowing you to spit on his website. There are some links at the sidebars you might want to spit on as well. Some of them take a far more reactionary line though, so maybe you’re better off not.

    What a active fantasy life you live, Jonah. I have not said a word about feeling persecution from you or this site, SameOldTribe. So all your chatter about that is just invented by your own lonesome self and has nothing to do with what I have said.

    But let us look at who DOES HAVE a persecution complex? Here is you, Jonah….

    ‘Yes, we do shoot back at the Republicans. Because the Republicans fire a shot across our bows virtually every hour. We’ve been called traitors and threatened with everything from beatings to hanging for not going along with the Republican line.’

    You poor CHUMP! Those mean ol’ baddies have kept you from your friends, the Democrats. Tears well up in my eyes. You must live under a fascist Republican dictatorship? Right, Nitwit?

    More of Brother Jonah for the Democratic Party LINE…

    ‘The Democratic party, even though we’ve disagreed vehemently with their policies and actions an many occasions, have never threatened us with death, never had the Colorado Springs Police beat us up in the streets, none of that.’

    Let’s see, aren’t you the Doof that was over there in Vietnam helping the Democrats put Vietnamese in Tiger Cages and then dumping wet lime on them ‘political dissidents’. What a selective memory you seem to have about Democrats, exSoldier Jonah. But you are one of them, aren’t you? You vote for them every damn time and then rant about being persecuted by people who mention that fact.

    And you think that it is the Republican fascists (as you call them that endlessly) that run the US occupation forces in Iraq today! You think that Cheney is in charge still and is making poor old oppressed Barack do all the wrong things! You are a true idiot, you know? And BIG TIME!

    Oh, I’m sorry. Am I a big bad Republican persecuting you now, Dope? I must have done that when I mentioned how insane your thought process is when you write out your dopey Vote DP material. And mentioned that you got lost on the island of Hispaniola in Cloud Nine.

    And btw. I never voted for a Republican in my life, and that includes voting for Ron Paul. So be smart, You Clown, and stop thinking that I am a Republican. I AM NOT! It is you foolish Democratic Party voters that are! But you are simply to eternally out of it to figure that out.
