Posts Tagged ‘G20 Protests’

The poster makes it look so cool to have a tea party in the UK.  This is not the image we have today with riots over the economy and the G20 summit.  Pix here- http://www.sacbee.com/static/weblogs/photos/2009/04/021195.html?mi_atom=The%20Frame

The G20 protesters are running around like little anarchists with their faces covered, spewing anti-capitalism and damaging The Royal Bank of Scotland.  I don’t see a tea pot in sight. 

America was founded on capitalistic principles.  The politics under Obama, Biden and Pelosi are insisting on changing America into a version of European socialism.  The EU’s economy isn’t any better than ours, but citizens who want to live under socialism, should just move to Europe where they can make fun of us far from far away, but they won’t go.

With calm appeal, that leaves the rest of us who are outraged.  Whatever your beef: the trillions of dollars in debt, poor management of existing regulations, unemployment, health care, education, bailouts, stimulus packages, or the heavy burdens of increased taxes, I urge you to consider attending or organizing a Tea Party on Tax Day, April 15.

The number of websites offering Tea Party activities is growing but http://taxdayteaparty.com/ is a concise place to find out what is going on in your own city and state.  Radio Patriot has some suggestions on getting a party started. http://radiopatriot.blogspot.com/2009/03/orlando-tea-party-organizer-offers.html

I pray that the protests any tea party do not attract the type of person who, rather than peacefully hold up a sign, will protest, whine, shout and break everything within sight.

The spread of democracy continues to be fought in Iraq, and Afghanistan with soldiers blood, sweat and tears.  Tea Party Tax Day is not the forum for spilling blood or violence on the streets of America. 

Get your feet out of the quicksand and on to the street.  You can be mad as hell, but the goal is to peacefully protest.

In honor of protesters at the G20 Summit and Barackstar Obama’s international tour, Absolut Vodka has brought back their global riot ads.  Obama is desperate to ask other large nations to copy America’s billion dollar stimulus plans, but already there is dissidence and it isn’t over whether Absolut or Stoli is the better brand.

The leaders of Germany and France nations expressed support for regulation, instead of further bailout efforts.  Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, last night led the assault on the British prime minister’s “global new deal” for a $2 trillion-plus fiscal stimulus to end the recession. “I will not let anyone tell me that we must spend more money,”  reported the Telegraph. from http://www.gold-speculator.com/appenzell-daily-bell/6001-germans-wreck-new-deal-thousands-protest-before-g20.html 

Pillow throwing isn’t going to solve anything; niether will riots, but the commercial brings into the light the disdain occurring across the world over the financial disaster. 

Obama will finish his world tour in Turkey – a country that is almost all Muslim – ” and given his direct call to Muslims during his inaugural address (“To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect”) his moves and comments there will be heavily scrutinized. ” http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/03/30/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry4903767.shtml 

I don’t think Turkey allows the importation of Absolut, which is absolutely a bummer.  The queen of the liquor kingdom is Russian Vodka http://www.russianvodka.com/russian_vodkas.htm and Obama representing America as the King, will hopefully not insult anyone in his meetings by bringing an ipod, a dvd’ or a bottle of booze as gifts. 

Tally ho, cheers, bottoms up and all of that. 

For the record from Wiki, these interesting facts- about Absolut-

Absolut Vodka is a Swedish brand of vodka, produced near Åhus, Scania, in southern Sweden. In March 2008, the Swedish government, owner of Absolut through its V&S Group, sold Absolut to the French firm Pernod Ricard.

Building on a four century tradition of producing vodka at Åhus, Absolut was introduced in 1879 by the entrepreneur Lars Olsson Smith. Absolut is the third largest brand of alcoholic spirits in the world after Bacardi and Smirnoff, marketed in 126 countries. The largest export market is the United States where close to 73 million litres were sold in 2003. More than 40% of the imported vodka in the United States is Absolut.
