you might have read where the Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines are taking relief supplies to St Thomas and then evacuating stranded folks from there - too soon to get a list of all the Countries that are helping with the US hurricane relief

perhaps you remember hurricane Katrina (Aug 2005) ?  here's a list of the countries who offered/gave help to the US :

Armenia, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Belgium, Britain, Canada, China, Colombia, Cuba, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Germany, Greece, Georgia, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Paraguay, the Philippines, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Venezuela and the United Arab Emirates

like I posted, not a lot of empathy shown here   :frown:

I noticed it was a local Philly story.  Apparently, the world will only end in Philly.

not a lot of empathy shown here - and I find that to be a sad thing

(helping people only because they helped you ? no wonder our society is so messed up !)
Plenty of empathy for the people injured and killed.

Just dont know why everyone expects AMERICA to save the day or rebuild some other country. 

USA has enough island and territories f'd up by recent storms not to mention our own mainland areas.
Seriously doubt we(USA) will get a whole lot of assistance from others rebuilding.

Tango,

Let me ask you a question:  Presuming that your next-door neighbor is a KNOWN criminal, intentionally causes you considerable trouble in the neighborhood, allows family members to peddle narcotics on your lawn  & openly HATES you & your family, would you "go out of your way" to do him favors??
(IF your answer is "YES", you're a better person than I am.)

TXAZ,

A typo but thinking on your comment, I suspect that I don't carry 5-10 days a year because I frequent places (like schools, courthouses/51% premises) where handguns are unlawful.
(I'm an election judge & while I think it's SILLY for "on campus carry" to be unlawful, that's the current law.)

Note: I really don't mind NOT carrying at my assigned polling place, as there are VERY protective ISD police there & they are helpful/Omni-present.
(At the 2016 election, a LEO came & sat with us almost all day to "avoid trouble". = I have one of the  "rougher precincts" in Southside. = We have had "conflict" & occasional fistfights at/outside our polling place..)

ImVho, I believe that a person who is sober/qualified/safe enough to carry ANYWHERE is equally safe to carry EVERYWHERE. = The safest place for my handgun is in my holster & on my belt.

Shipwreck,

NOPE. = The 2 managers saw the bottom of my OWB holster when I took out my wallet. - My usual garb is jeans/golf shirt/sneakers.
(The store manager in McKinney asked me if I was carrying & I said: YES. The SA manager quietly said, "You're carrying a pistol?" & I said, "YES". He said, "Good." = Whatever else that I am, I'm not a liar.)

yours, satx

(Also the Starbucks manager near my place in SA knows that I carry concealed 24/355 & couldn't care less.)

Typo or what 10 days don't you carry?

How would they know? Did you tell them?

DCD327,

Reference  Starbucks & their reputation for being "liberal":  The Starbucks manager near our apartment in McKinney found out that I always carry a handgun  & now frequently doesn't charge me for coffee.
(Also the Starbucks manager near my place in SA knows that I carry concealed 24/365 & couldn't care less.)

My guess is that their reputation is mostly from their stores on the left coast & in DAMNYANKEE-land.

yours, satx
