Red Meat

So I’m on the way back from the cabin earlier today and I hears on the radio that some huge international company in Dubai, U.A.E., is poised to purchase another huge international company in London, U.K., and bunches and hoards of morons just about everywhere–wall-to-wall and top-to-bottom–are carrying on as though it’s not only their business, but as though they, indeed, own the companies in question.

I’m just swimming in stupids, morons, imbeciles, and jack-asses all day long and every day.

Oh, btw, the title refers to the political meal this just had to represent to those who first spun the story their way.

    That is perhaps a fair-enough distinction.

    At least you're able to make it–which is a great deal more than I can say about just about all the fools I heard spouting off ignorantly yesterday.

    I don't think anyone with half a brain is arguing that the UAE company doesn't have the right to buy the British company in question. Of course they do. It's their money, and it's a private transaction, period.

    I think the debate is over whether or not, after that transaction is complete, the United States still wishes to be doing business with that company.

    It is the right of every consumer everywhere to review their continued patronage of a business after that business changes owners. (Or at any other damn time for that matter.)
