They say if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish…. then he’s got to get a fishing license, but he doesn’t have any money. So he’s got to get a job and pay taxes, and now you’re gonna audit the poor cocksucker because he’s not good with math.
So they’ll pull the IRS van up to your house and take all your shit. And you were just worried about eating a fucking fish, but you couldn’t ever cook the fish because you needed a permit for an open flame. Then the Health Dept. is going to start asking you a lot of questions about where you are going to dump the scales and guts. And ladies and gentlemen, if you get sick of it all at the end of the day, it’s not even legal to kill yourself. - Doug Stanhope
THE SICK AND STARVING CHILDREN OF SYRIA ARE DYING. YOU CAN HELP.
The boy above suffered from Cachexia, a disease that lays waste to the muscles in the body, causes loss of appetite, fatigue and weakness. An appeal went out on Sept 27, 2012 to get him help in Al Bab, Aleppo as the medication and treatment he needed was not available in the hellish world he lived in under Assad’s attacks. Unfortunately , he died. May little Mahmoud Haj Hussein rest in peace. He’s much better off up there rather than living in misery in Assad’s Syria as an indifferent world watches and does nothing …
This little child in Houla (Homs), where 100+ women and children were massacred on May 25, 2012, died from disease and hunger. An appeal went out on August 11, 2012 to find help for him. The video was made as a plea to the world to help. No one did, so the child died. (video here)
This woman sent our here passionate and heart-wrenching appeal for aid 6 months ago for the little baby girl she hold in her hands. The girl is severely malnourished. her mother literally went senile after losing 3 of her other children to Assad’s forces and was unfit to care for her baby. Unfortunately it was too late to help the little baby girl. Days after this appeal, no one responded and she died.
Another child in Houla (Homs) is still alive. An appeal went out on Sept 26, 2012 for help. He lives on a mattress in a small room with the rest of his family. He cannot speak or hear. He’s mentally retarded and needs constant care. In Houla, this is how families are merely existing, not living. (video here). What will they do this winter? When food does arrive, it’s usually stale bread brought (smuggled) in the back of a truck, people have to push and shove to get a piece so they can live another day. (video here)
In Homs City, a father with his three children describes how they have been surviving on bread, thyme and olive oil for months. No vegetables, not meat … nothing. (video here)
A few days ago an appeal went out to help this crippled and starving boy in Hama. Will you help him survive? All the food and comfort care he needs would cost less than $50 a month.

***HEARTBREAKING*** THERE IS NOTHING MORE SAD TO SEE ON THIS EARTH THAN A PARENT REFUSING TO BELIEVE THEIR CHILD IS DEAD. Damascus (Hamouriyeh): Oct 10, 2012 - You don’t need to understand the language spoken to feel the pain, grief and suffering of this father. His little girl was killed by Assad’s forces earlier. Now he lays hugging her lifeless body on the floor of a makeshift clinic.
He cannot let go. No parent can.
People around him urge him to get up and he begs them to let him stay longer. In Syria, where Assad has murdered more than 30,000 men, women and children (that we know of) death has become too common. The dead are buried immediately to make way for the injured or even more dead.
His heart was wrenched out as they finally pull him away from his little princess …
