Yesterday’s paper said we’ve given more money to Afghanistan than we paid for the Marshall plan. It added we should expect less accomplishment in return. I read stuff like that and my anger about greasy CEO’s sags a bit. When you live in a country whose leaders think bribing thieves and retrograde morons is the key to peace, why get mad at our homegrown thieves who are smart enough to dodge their taxes and watch the rest of us send our money to tyrants?
My thoughts exactly. I am hoping we, as a nation, are headed towards more inward efforts at taking care of the mess we have here rather than trying to “buy” other nations favors.
