How About That Free Trade?

I got the sickest vendetta
When it come to the chedda

I wonder how Bush keeps a straight face when he says this:
"Our goal is to promote opportunity for people throughout the Americas, whether you live in Minnesota or Brazil," Bush said. "And the best way to do this is by expanding free and fair trade."

But I think Latin America now knows that trade agreements made with the US aren't worth the paper they are printed on. What a joker.

Responding to a question at a meeting of young leaders in Brazil, Bush said such protests were not unusual in democratic countries.

"We met in a society which allows people to express their different points of view . . . which is positive," Bush said. "I expect there to be dissent. That's what freedom is all about."

A mysterious group called "Activists for Truth" financed by the Republicans then started a massive counter demonstration and simultaneous propaganda campaign aimed at discrediting the protesters.
