    Good old Vicchio defending right wing building projects.

    Overpriced school = educates AMERICAN children.

    Overpriced embassy = a big building with no real use other than a helicopter landing pad and other than project arrogance and stupidity in a nation where most people would rather cut your throat than shake your hand .. as an American. At least lets hope the roof can handle more than one helicopter so that the evacuation can be done faster...

    Failing, broke school district that slashed school year, teachers and programs. Is 640,000,000.00 in the HOLE. It's a pretty building for rich kids.

    The only arrogance and stupidity I see is... in the above quoted section...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    And the US is 10+ trillion in the hole with a massive budget deficit when the Embassy was projected and signed off on and completed... under Bush. It is a pretty building for right wingers in Baghdad.

    Yea deny the facts.

    Listen.. I would rather spend the money on a school in my home country that can help people now and in the future, than throw away even more money on a building in another country, that benefits no one but a handful of civil servants and right winger backers. If you cant see the logic in that, then I am sorry but that is not my problem.

    Just think of all the poor children that could have BOOKS instead of rich kids a new school building.
    Hey... can I get a job teaching there!?!?!/ Oh wait a minute, it is in LA, a horrible urban school district known in the educational profession for poor discipline and lack of support for teachers... never mind...

    Does it have a shopping mall with internet cafes? I guess this is part of the multicultural education program our children receive these days. You have to create an environment where children can learn and grow, and appreciate the utter splender of learning.

    I see you've taken it upon yourself (no surprise) to introduce the requisite Bush-bashing, thread-derailing hackery. You are coming totally unhinged.
