So, here's Jorge on his "We care, really..." tour of those other Americas, helping move lettuce for export in Guatemala.
You better move that lettuce faster, Jorge, or you won't be able to afford your daily tortillas, made with unfairly-subsidized U.S. corn that's dumped into Guatemalan markets! Of course, with small farmers driven out of buisness, there's less competition, and the price of corn has started going up very sharply. Chances are good that the people who grow the lettuce are having a hard time buying the tortillas necessary to feed their families...
Of course, as Señor Bush helps send Guatemalan food to America in order to meet our needs for fine salads, half of Guatemala's children under the age of five suffer from chronic malnutrition, and many face the possibility of an early death.
Indeed, Guatemala has the highest rate of malnourished children in the Western Hemisphere, even higher than Haiti, the region’s poorest country, ranking sixth in the world for chronic malnutrition.
What sort of pendejo do you have to be to do a photo op taking food out of a country whose children are starving?
Chinga tu madre, gringo!
