I guess tossing $850 million into a rathole would be all well and good if we could afford it. But we’re broke and have already wasted billions of the failed gay president’s failed “green” slush funds. At what point does this stop?
President Barack Obama is expected to unveil a $6 billion international public-private partnership to extend the Green Revolution to Africa.
The initiative, which is linked to this weekend’s G-8 summit, aims to lift 50 million people out of hunger and poverty within a decade by investing in modern agricultural methods and technologies. Rich countries are expected to commit to spending $3 billion – the U.S. share is around $850 million over three years – while three dozen international and African companies will pledge a similar amount in investments such as fertilizer production, grain silos and new food products.
Naturally, any opposition to this waste of money will be labeled racist or something.
