The Nobel Peace Prize ain’t what it used to be: Costa Rica?

Ex President  Oscar Arias, like so many other leftest douche bags has lectured we Americans after we kept his nation afloat for so many years.

Read his tirade HERE. More importantly, read the comments that follow. They explain things much better than I ever could.

Here are my solutions for dealing not just with Costa Rica, but with every other country that bites the American hand that feeds them.

  • Ban any, and all investment from American people and businesses.
  • Ban all travel to said nations.
  • No aid, disaster, food, military, or humanitarian of any kind to such nations.

We could call it the “Hate America First Act.” Want to fix the budget? That would be a first, and very big step in that direction.

    How long have you and I both called for measures such as these? We have been called *isolationists*, and worse…

    Americans don’t want America fixed, they want stuff handed to them and they want to *bitch* about everything else…

    Either we FIX America and do away with the waste and apathy, or very soon there won’t be an America, at least not one that we would recognize…

    It would sure be beneficial if we rearranged our foreign aid priorities. I like your guidelines, Patrick.

    The idea that we are not able to cut spending at all levels of government is simply ridiculous. Handouts of all stripes is a good way to start – along with earmarks.


  3. Alfie Says:

    One point of irony here is that Costa Rica had to send it’s police force,it doesn’t have an army, to face down the Nicaraguans over an island on the San Juan River.

  4. PanAm Says:

    Thank you Patrick for bringing “this” to the fore…
    Along with what Alfie mentions, Costa Rica has been in a pickle because it has been reported that Nicaragua, Venezuela and Iran are in the planning stages of using part of the border River for the beginning of a new canal from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and that Nicaragua controls the river, legally…

    What Nicaragua [the U.S.A, actually years ago had proposed the route for a new canal] apparently would like is to use the San Juan River channel as the basis for beginning a canal, then connecting to the Nicaragua Lake, then blasting to Pacific from there…
    Without an army, Costa Rica apparently seeks those who can help it against its big, bad neighbor…

    Mr. Arias decries America’s expenditures on its military, but Costa Rica now seeks help from others precisely because it does not have a military.
    Reasonable reductions in expenditures across the board will have to be made, but not to the extent that America would be in the position Costa Rica today finds itself.

    Thanks for the comments friends. I haven’t read Alfies piece yet, but the bigger picture is the strategic implications of a new canal, as well as a flattened Costa Rica…

    We definitely need to cut our costs. But not at the expense of cutting our own throats. If, and it would be a very big if; we built the damned thing we would have to make sure that we own it forever. An American presence, a permanent one, in the area just might make things a bit tougher for Hugo et al in the area.

    And yes Fred, I’m waiting for the obligatory leftest xenophobe comment…


  6. mainenowandthen Says:

    That is great information, PanAm and something that should have Washington very concerned – particularly with the involvement of Iran in a project so close to our borders. Thanks for highlighting it.


  7. Patrick Sperry Says:

    Thing of it is Maine, Iran has been making gains all over South America already. This is a strategic move on their part, and they know it. Will the obamanites do anything? Sure, they will kneel, bow, and come up with glowing platitudes.


  8. mainenowandthen Says:

    I’m afraid that you are right, Patrick.
