But we have to raise taxes to pay schoolteachers (part xxiii)
Rich Galen, talking about the Egyptian anti-U.S. riots:
Remember we are propping up the Islamist government of Egypt to the tune of $1.5 billion per year.
I dunno how much we send to Libya (this says we send $4 billion to Libya, Egypt, and Pakistan combined), but…hey, President Obama, wanna be a hero to thousands of teachers and parents in Chicago?
UPDATE – that would have been far more appropriate if I’d posted it before the Chicago teacher’s strike ended.
UPDATE II – Also, I do have to soften my views, just a little, when I see stuff like this:
‘This Does Not Represent Us': Moving Photos of Pro-American Rallies in Libya
Still, though, as long as crap like this keeps happening… don’t we have to have some kind of a stick?
