And then they dare to make us feel guilty putting commercials on television telling is little Lupe needs your help in Guatemala, and for the price of a cup of coffee you can help.
But you know, the VISA commercials. Everything is 'Priceless'. Just put it on your tab. We can Feed The CORRUPTION in other countries, just pay it later..
We are not responsible for the rest of those countries. Each one of them with millions starving have very happy, rich people at the top who choose to let it happen so they can guilt trip the fat, wealthy Americans and get more rich.
Well, ya notice when stuff like this is posted... Those people who brag about their personal financial situation, and how stable and strong the US economy is, are nowhere to be found? I swear, there is an influx of people here who cannot see beyond their new cars, large salaries, and consider that maybe Bush is wrong about the economy.
