    If he wins he will be known as Rusty, because I get to rename him.

    The first lady already got what she requested. You can almost pay off all of the next three's request. The last guy wouldnt be able to get anything though.

    Those are some very unfortunate comments...

    Is the life of an American citizen MORE valuable than the life of someone in Mexico, Uganda, or Tajikistan?

    NikeTalk is, and always has been, internationally focused. Nelson C hails from Canada. Ceddie's from Switzerland. Krux lived in the Philippines when hewas first brought in as a mod. kdawg lives in Scotland. Air Elijah's Australian. We can go on. Our members live all over the world, and while most comefrom the United States that doesn't make the United States the center of the universe.

    If you look at the list of charities we've supported, you'll notice that most of them are actually based in the US and many of them serve people in theUS. Our second donation went to Access Books, which refurbishes inner city school libraries in the Los Angeles area. We've given to the UNCF. We donatedto Ettie Lee homes and, very recently, Habitat for Humanity. Organizations like the American Cancer Society and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund obviously benefit us all.

    Method, I thik what dunkairs is trying to say is not that we shouldn't help out people all around the world, but rather, that since he is a citizen of theUnited States, he believes those who live in the US should be trying to support their own economy rather than people around the world.

    Not that I agree with his view but that's just my take on what he's saying, as the majority of us users do in fact live in the USA.

    Rustam is the only one without his request fulfilled. By Monday his loan may already be raised.

    For those of us that are interested,would it be possible to be placed on some kind of email list that would alert us that a poll is up for new loans? If we cutthe time frame down to 24 hours which we probably should because they are raised so quickly, it will make vote getting a little bit harder and make keeping upwith the new kiva loans a little more difficult.

    As nerdy as it sounds, I just don't want to miss out [​IMG].
