Just Who's Money Is It Anwyay

How to Buy Friends and Influence People

The new US Secretary of State John Kerry says the US is providing $190 million immediately to Egypt as part of a larger pledge of $450 million.  We can't afford to pay our own government employees who are facing the threat of up to a 20% pay cut via one day a week furloughs, but sure Uncle Sam can pass out money like a drunken sailor out binge drinking.

New $60 Million Government Program

The government also announced a new government program to aid entrepreneurs and young people.  This is a good thing, what with the unemployment rate for 20-24 year olds sitting at 14.2% and the rate for 18-19 year olds at 20.8%.  Your government is looking out for you if you are young and unemployed,  you only need to meet one condition, you need to be an Egyptian living in Egypt.

Nothing New

Of course, you can't solely blame the democrats for this one, our government democratic or republican have been engaging in Greenback diplomacy since Gunboats have become politically incorrect.

Meh! What's a couple of hundred million among friends?
