In Which I Agree With The Bush Administration

I think the argument should not be applied to taxes--thirty percent should be thirty percent (or whatever it is) there--but as far as foreign aid goes, I'm with this article about the U.S. response to the U.N. on the issue of percentage of aid versus GNP. I don't really care what some ass-end-of-nowhere country commits to foreign aid in terms of its GNP. We take care of a lot of stuff around the world, and in dollar amounts--not percentages of anything--we've got big, generous pockets.

Sure, we could probably do more--witness my snarky comment of the other day---but come on, here. The U.N. can suck it.


  • (Savannah) On the other hand, one reads with deep mortification of Bush's refusal to cancel his vacation and visit Sri Lanka or Indonesia. Sure, it's the worst natural disaster in recorded history which literally shook the earth, hit eleven countries at once, and killed 55,000 people and counting, but hey! Bush has got friends coming over! Let's keep our priorities straight here! He'll make a video call.

    Hey, fucker. Tony Blair was on a plane and in the United States less than a week after 9/11. Get your fucking ass over to Sri Lanka and PRETEND that you fucking care. Jesus Christ.
