U.S. Lends $105M to Brazil—to Build a Fish Tank

Yes, Brazil is beautiful.
But why the Hell is a bankrupt United States loaning money to Brazil to
build an aquarium?
Insanity  -  U.S. to loan $105,000,000 to Brazil to build a giant fish tank for their tourists
  • The U.S. borrows money from the Communist Chinese in order to fund aquarium building in Brazil. 
  • Oh what the Hell.  The nation is going into a fucking Black Hole.  Just keep shoveling the money out the back door.  I don't give a shit anymore.  Let's just go out in one giant fucking mushroom cloud.

Gary Rule #1  -  People are fucking idiots.

And that goes double for politicians and their boot-licking appointees to boards and commissions.

The U.S. is bankrupt.  The Fed printing presses are running 24-7 belching out billions in more and more worthless phony monopoly money and we are borrowing from everyone under the sun.  All in a useless attempt to keep this endless party going and going.

Now the U.S. Export-Import Bank, an agency of the federal government, is lending $105 million to the Brazilian state of Ceara to help build an aquarium in its capital city of Fortaleza.

“An anticipated tourist attraction, the aquarium will boast four floors housing 25 large tanks containing approximately 15 million liters of water and showcasing 500 marine species and 35,000 individual specimens,” the Export-Import Bank said in CNS News.

Call me crazy, but from the look of Fortaleza they should be loaning money to the U.S.
instead of the U.S. loaning money to Fortaleza.

“The aquarium will also feature interactive exhibits, two 4D cinemas, one 3D cinema, and an educational platform dedicated to the research and preservation of aquatic life along the Brazilian coastal regions,” said the U.S.-government-controlled bank. “When completed, Acquario will rank as the largest aquarium in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest in the world.”

The bank says the $105 million loan for the project will "finance the export of American good and services" for construction of the aquarium.

In May, President Barack Obama signed legislation to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank through fiscal 2014, increasing its financing authority from $100 billion to $140 billion.

And they know how to throw a party in Brazil.

The Brazilian flag never looked so good.
I am more than ready to pledge my allegiance to that flag and all it stands for.
