"Oil subsidies" is a purely a political term. The main oil "subsidies" are HEAP and the strategic oil reserve. both of which involve the government buying energy, not just giving out money. What you describe as a subsidy, most people would describe simply as "doing business with the govt."

For being the "Land of the free" we sure have alot of people attacking individual freedom.

C'mon now. Please don't try to put music sales from Apple in the same category as political or religious freedom, which is what "land of the free" is about.
This Apple thing, DRM and such, is a business transaction. You are completely free to make a business transaction for equivalent products with different companies. You could even go to a library, borrow a CD and rip the songs you want. How much more free do you want?

A quick look at google maps and I estimate
Panama is about 40 miles across and about 150 feet (65 k, 40 m) of altitude to overcome.
Nicaragua is about 150 miles and about 650 feet (240 k, 200 m) of altitude to overcome. The altitude difference would add a lot to operating expenses. They'd have to pump a lot of water to locks about 600 feet higher than in Panama.

There are running jobs. Why don't you go chase them?
