You may have missed this because it was......


posted on the other board but a couple of my friends who are retired execs with the industry went down early this year to help rebuild their power grid. They were retired but signed 3 year contracts to go and live there to help the country. They are already back home. They said it is so corrupt down there they couldn't get anything done. Certain people get the funds and it doesn't get spent like it should, just like all the supplies that went back because they were never distributed.

I know you remember years ago when we would send a ship load of food to 3rd world countries. It would sit in the docks while people starved and the leaders resold or profited from the donations. That's about how PR is run and has been for years. I wish we wouldn't keep sending aid until their gov is cleaned up.
