Just got some email forwards from the parents.
Item 1. A new Muslim stamp. It disses everything America stands for and insults the victimes of 9/11.
I don’t agree. You have a Christmas stamp, isn’t this the same thing?
Shouldn’t we boycott Christmas stamps because of the civil war in Ireland between Catholics and Protestants?
Item 2: Boycott Citgo. Citgo is owned by the Venezuelan government, who, according to the email, is going to destroy AMerica.
Puh-leeze. The guy is trying to feed his people and we are going to shoot him?
A reasonably fair analysis of the email here.
Yeah, maybe Chavez isn’t a saint, but are the Iraqis and the Saudis? You don’t have much trouble buying their gas. And I don’t have a problem with Cindy Sheehan. She has a beef, let her beef. It’s a free country. Although it seems to be less so lately. She can visit whomever, and I just won’t listen if I don’t want to.
My star point is quoted: “From a Latin American point of view, Venezuelans should have the right to choose their own president — even one who sometimes insults the American president — without interference from the United States. ” If the French did that to us, we would be nuking them.
Have fun with your boycotts.
