Not sure how long Morales is gonna last:
LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — President Evo Morales cut his salary by more than half and declared no Cabinet minister can collect a higher wage than his own, with the savings to be used to hire more public school teachers.
This kind of stuff doesn't piss off the United States, but he best not go off on that 'nationalization' tip - else, he'll be a walking dead man. That's not a threat from me - that's the implied threat from the United States of America that every Central and South American leader must contend with. Americans don't know about this implied threat, but leaders south of the Border know it all too well.
