Bolivia leader halves his own pay (NOW, THAT'S NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The Bolivian new left-wing President, Evo Morales, has cut his salary by more than a half to a little over $1,800 (£1,012) per month.
 
The decision means that the salaries of all Bolivian public sector employees will be reviewed, as no official can earn more than the president.
 
Mr Morales said the money saved would be used to increase the numbers of doctors and teachers.
 
Mr Morales suggested that members of Congress should cut their salaries too.
During the campaign, Mr Morales had pledged to halve his own pay if elected.
 
The move announced after his first cabinet went beyond that, with a cut of 57%.
 
BBC South America correspondent Daniel Schweimler says many voted for Mr Morales believing that he was different from the more conservative politicians who have governed in the past.
 
The former llama herder and coca leaf farmer was inaugurated last Sunday as Bolivia's first indigenous president.
 
He has promised to fight corruption, introduce a new tax on the wealthy, and renationalise energy companies.

Now this will not happen in Kenya until the year 3012 but undoubtedly is what we need.

I've just been hanging out not getting anything done, but so it goes. It's not important. I haven't been up to much today.

My life's been generally bland these days. I just don't have much to say. I don't care. I haven't been up to anything these days. I can't be bothered with anything recently.

Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from
an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

If you assist them, be certainly not to get too hot them.
You should have to have a bunch of cooking pans with ovenware accessories on to hand to along with.

Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding
know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
