A Letter from New Mexico

A friend sent me this note —one person’s opinion which reflects more on how our government has supported dictators and their military muscle rather than the people.

“I wish Egypt would go away. We’ve been sending them billions of dollars every year and now we have to up the amount to the trillions because they have no money in their ATM’s and their banks are closed (they just opened-pm).

I’m not proud to be an American. They hate us as does the rest of the world. Why do we send every country dollars when we have no dollars? What does “deficit” really mean? Where are we getting these dollars we don’t have?”
