$300 Million for Pakistani & Other Elections?!?!?!?!?!

The latest from my independent news blog U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor: U.S. Could Infuse $300 Million Into Upcoming Elections -- Overseas.

Yep, we're going to help Pakistan and others to keep their elections clean. Hmmm.

Keep in mind that this is yet another multi-hundred-million-dollar boondoggle for which struggling U.S. taxpayers must foot the bill. The Bush Administration carried out similar programs (in fact, the Bush-era contracts recently got extended!). As the old song "Circumstances" by the band Rush proclaims: The more that things change/The more they stay the same.
