Fair Game:  Credit Cards and Reluctant Regulators

It is time that every citizen of the world who due to "GOD'S WILL"  or  the theory  of probabilities, gave some of us the luck  to live, in a better economic situation, than our  congeners.

The tragedy in Haiti is of some magnitude that   I can not express it in one word, I am astonishing mute thinking in their suffering and in the suffering around the world, that in more than 70% live in the condition of hunger.

Through this blog , I implore my followers readers , visitors, partners and associates to  make an economic donation ASAP and canalize it, through respectable institutions well known; and be  alert, of  amoral persons that might be looking for an opportunity to make money at the expense of the tragedy in Haiti -the poorest country in the American Continent.
