What a ridiculous comment.

Are you hoping to provoke people into helping you by sounding more 
stupid than you are?

Database programming is obviously possible in haskell. Many many people 
are doing it.

The documentation may be patchy, the libraries may be hard to install 
(often the case with free software for databases, for some reason)
but that's quite a long way from impossible.
