French protests and U.S. Aid to Pakistan ...

(c) 2010 K. Smokey Cormier

Two things have merged in my mind today: the French protests + U.S. $$$ Aid $$$ to Pakistan.

I guess the Obama administration fears the Taliban extremists more than they fear all the folks here in the U.S. who are losing their jobs and homes. Guess they bet on the right pony.

Folks, the U.S. (meaning us) are giving Pakistan $2 Billion dollars a year to fight extremists. I know that you know how hard it is to earn cash these days. So there goes our hard-earned cash ... to Pakistan. Where will it really end up?

And good people here are still losing jobs ... still losing their homes. Two billion dollars. Per year -- you caught that part, didn't you, bunkie?

What does it take to get folks here in the U.S. of Amnesia to get out there in the streets and EXPRESS THEMSELVES??!!!!

Stumble It!
