Bush budget would slash assistance to Latin America

Now there's a real shocker, eh? Our country showing we don't give a shit about Latin America...so what's changed? We've known this for years.

Why do we do this? Why do we neglect the neighbors and "bring the mountain to Mohammed? Simple. None of the countries in Latin America are Israel. None of the countries in Latin America have royal families with long ties to the president's family. Failure of the administration to bring about a political change in any of the Latin countries isn't tied to the direct "electability" of a republican. No democrat knows enough about any of the Latin countries to use it as leverage or PC ammo against their enemies in government. And none of the countries in Latin America have nuc-ya-ler weapons.

Too bad people don't wake-up and realize that if we kept things in our own back yard, we could square ourselves away and say "fuck the Middle East."

Too bad indeed...
