Pesante-USA | Kasuka-suka at kasuklam-suklam ang ipinakitang sukdulang pagpapakatuta ni Gloria Arroyo sa kanyang imperyalistang amo nang bumisita siya sa US nitong huling linggo ng Hunyo. Sa kasagsagan ng pananalasa ng bagyong "Frank" sa Pilipinas, nilustay ni Arroyo ang kabang-yaman ng bayan sa walang kapararakan, magastos at magarbong pagbyahe.
