I also called the WH today and asked for 100% debt cancellation.

The real pisser is that the 674m is not new money. It has already been appropriated by the Congress.

In other words it's empty freaking rhetoric. It is also much less than he initially promised in the State of the Union address 3 or 4 years ago.

It's plain bullshit.

I totally agree with you.

Spending 1% of the allocated budget really wouldn't kill us....and it would allow so many others the same privilege.

It's the wealthy who's best interests Bush has at heart.

Way to go, Georgie, you fucking tightwad....

Africa is sinking and you're more worried about the opinions of the rich rats on Capitol Hill.

I knew that money he promised would never make it to Africa. Did anybody not see this coming? Is there anybody in this country that still trusts this man, or his promises? God, I hope not...I hope we're not that dumb.

This is one of the things that disgusts me about the current state of things in the U.S.--we could do a great good. We could do something that we could finally be proud of. But no, our pres. is a heartless miser.

Scarletwine has it right - it's not enough to simply post our disgust at Bush for his mediocre response to additional investment in Africa's Future -

we must be willing TO ACT to demonstrate to Mr Bush and his cohorts that we simply WILL NOT TOLERATE their excuses anymore about Africa!

AFRICA MUST BE ALLOWED TO SIT EQUALLY AT THE TABLE OF HUMANITY.

Please do all that you can to help her.

Have acted. Am acting. Just a little disgusted that George Bush, despite our best efforts, probably will not.
