Go ahead and bang those bottles of Bud Light against the bar top. It doesn't change the hypocrisy.
Pictured above is a row of taps, as photographed yesterday at the West Baden Springs resort hotel. The two on the left matter. The four on the right don't, and it is irrelevant as to which engorged monolith manufactures them, where they do it, and how many shareholders who are busy drinking wine profit from the transaction.
Funny, isn't it, that when Anheuser-Busch buys into a foreign brewery, it's somehow a patriotic imperative that reaffirms our collective self-esteem ... but when a foreign conglomerate seeks to buy Anheuser-Busch, we must bar the doors and protect a beloved icon from acquisition?
Pound away, hypocrites, and read about it here.
