US Tsunami aid in context

via Eschaton: We pledged $15M. Budget for the Boy King's coronation: $30-40M (excluding security costs, which believe you me will be huge -- gotta make sure Michael Moore can't get any shots of folks throwing eggs like last time).

Beat me to the draw on this one--I got slowed down trying to find a cost estimate for properly armoring our vehicles in Iraq.

I can't wait for the inevitable cries of "but those are private donations" as a defense for the costs of the Boy King's orgy next month. Right. These corporate welfare kings can't be bothered to pay reasonable taxes, won't send their kids over to fight a war they so deeply believe in, and almost certainly will not be ponying up anything meaningful in disaster relief overseas, because the ratio of brown people to white folks is too far out of whack to trigger anything resembling empathy. Fuck them.

And I was going to take on the public/private red herring, but got distracted myself.
