Patriotic hypocrisy …?

A friend of mine stopped by for the weekend and he brought America’s #1 snack food – beer!

By this was no ordinary beer, it was Anheuser-Busch’s popular brand “Budweiser”, in a commemorative can that was emblazoned with:

  • Land of the free
  • Home of the brave
  • Indivisible
  • E Pluribus Unum
  • From the redwood forest to the gulf stream waters this land was made for you and me
  • Liberty & justice for all
  • Since 1776

I can only assume these are a patriotic themed can that did not sell out completely on the 4th of July. What a shame, because that’s some of the finest swamp-water-piss any true American could hope to buy!

Of course, if a “true” American wanted to be “patriotic”, they would not buy their beer (or any other products) from a foreign-owned company, right? Amirite?? Vote with your wallet and keep your dollars here by supporting locally owned companies by buying only products that are “Made in America”, right? But most folks don’t know that Anheuser-Busch became part of a Belgium beverage & brewing company back in 2008. But that’s OK, you, the consumer, can still show your patriotism by buying MORE of this swill and drinking it while celebrating the anniversary of our country. And don’t forget the fireworks! (made in China), because nothing is more patriotic than drunk people and explosives.
