Absolutely Not

I’m a big fan of vodka; it’s one of my preferred spirits. There is one brand, however, that despite its quality, reasonable price, and easy availability that I do not purchase nor allow my family to do so – not that they would in the first place. That is Absolut, which was once one of my staple brands of vodka. The reason for my boycott is clear and simple:

If in an “Absolut World” Atzlan has completed it Reconquista of the American Southwest, or even if they just thought that such an ad was appropriate to use in Mexico then they are the enemies of America.

Since I do not lend aid and comfort to the enemy, I do not purchase their products and encourage all other Americans to do the same.

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.

— Edmund Burke
The Yale Book of Quotations

Treason takes many forms, not all of which are obvious. One of the worst and easiest to commit is lending tacit support to America’s foreign or domestic enemies by doing any form of business with them whatsoever or lending them any aid or support even by proxy.

Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after theyre down. 😉

    After the comment you left at my Blog, I think it is a safe assumption that you believe China is America’s enemy.

    Then I read here where you feel anyone who does business with America’s enemy is a traitor. If that were true, many Americans are traitors. In fact, most are.

    Let’s see: President Nixon would be the first traitor on the list because he went to China. Then the US and China became allies against Soviet Russia. Every American President since then has done business with China.

    A few years later Mao died and Deng Xiaoping turned China over to capitalists and locked the Maoists out of power. Individuals–not the state, now own ninety percent of China’s businesses.

    Then there is Ford and GM, who manufacture and sell cars there.

    Oh, let’s not forget Starbucks, McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut and Hooters. They all have stores in China.

    I wrote a post about Hooters in China. That was fun.

    Wal-Mart is a traitor. They do business with China too and everyone who shops at Wal-Mart since their support of Wal-Mart benefits China. That’s a lot of Americans and the list is growing.

    Look!

    Target, Costco, J.C. Penny, Sears–the list is endless. They all do business with China and everyone who shops at those stores and buys products made in China does business with China indirectly.

    Oh no, the United States Federal Government is a traitor. After all, the US allowed China to buy more than a trillion dollars of Treasuries.

    The US military are also traitors since all hi-tech weapons needed to fight America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan need what China refines–rare earth elements.

    Do you have a flat screen TV or computer monitor? Without China’s, those wouldn’t exist.

    China is the only country that refines the rare minerals needed for cell phones too and the Apple iPad. In fact, most of Apple’s products are assembled in China.

    Everyone on Wall Street is a traitor since China is investing about 300 billion annually by buying stocks in US companies. If China is America’s enemy, there should be a law against that.

    If we lock every one of these traitors up, who will be left to watch the prisons?

    Your “safe assumption” wasn’t as safe as you thought it was, Mr. Lofthouse; Currently I consider China an adversary as opposed to an outright enemy. They need to be watched as are a matter of grave concern but conflict is needed right now.

    You won’t win an argument though by bringing up the fact they we’ve allied with them in the past against more immediate threats. We allied ourselves with the animal Stalin too in order to defeat a worse foe. It’s a necessary evil at times.

    Finally, yes we purchase a lot of things from China and that is reprehensible in the extreme and something I believe we should curtail as much as possible until China can be forced to modify both its trade policies and its various egregious human rights problems.

    Update: Nevermind; I read the reply you left on your own blog which was nothing but another Liberal, anti-American and anti-Western World screed. We have nothing further to discuss.
