US $30,000,000

While I haven't found this yet (haven't had much time) saw it on the news last night (Television Nacional de Chile) and heard it directly from Curly's (Chavez) mouth: "We are donating US $30,000,000 to Moe (Evo) and Bolivia".

Excuse me????? Donating???? What happened to the cause of eradicating poverty in Venezuela, giving free education, improving healthcare, creating housing??? Don't get me wrong, I'm not against countries helping each other, but as we say in Spanish "la caridad comienza por casa", meaning charity starts at home. I think Venezuela has enough need for the 30 million for them to be giving them away in donations. This is beyond disgusting.
