Closing Thought–06Feb17

Pathetic toads!

As any American will tell you yesterday was the all powerful Super Bowl….personally I had better things to do that watch this spectacle….and every year the big stories are usually the ads that show during the game…this year was NO different but their was a bit of a twist……

Part of the ritual of the Super Bowl is the analysis of the adverts shown during the game, when US television networks use the large audience numbers to charge astronomical sums for commercial slots.

This year, during the first Super Bowl of Donald Trump’s presidency, the US brewery Anheuser-Busch used its slot to send a pro-immigration message to the nation.

The advert, Born the Hard Way, portrays a fictionalised version of the journey of Adolphus Busch to the US, where he would go on to help create Budweiser beer with fellow immigrant Eberhard Anheuser.

Trump supporters on social media were furious when the advert was launched before the game, vowing not to drink the beer again.

This stupidity goes under #BoycottBudweiser…..

This just illustrates the moronic air around Trump and his knuckle dragging followers…I wish I could find more polite way of putting my thoughts down….about the only one that fits is STUPIDITY.

Does not appear if any sanity will win the day for the next 4 years…..temper tantrums from our fearless leader and his throngs of demented toads…..keeps sanity at bay…..

I wish I could say this was the silliest incident but it hardly registers at all….

God only knows what it will be tomorrow.

My day is done…thanx to all for the visits and the follows…I shall return tomorrow with more….stuff.

  1. I was shaking my head at the commerical that showed all the things that involved Oil and where it has gone in the past 100 or so years, paid for by the Council of Petroleum Companies no doubt funded by Sunoco, Shell, Texaco, Exxon Mobil, etc. etc. It’s not the future, but everyone who saw that commerical, and believed it, is probably already driving a gas guzzler anyway.

    Ironically, the right is calling the liberal left knuckle draggers too. 🙂

  2. I have no interest in the Super Bowl, nor in the advertisements that are shown during it. However, it occurs to me that many blue-collar brewery workers may well have been avid supporters of Trump. Now their beer is to be boycotted by similar like-minded individuals, and jobs possibly lost as a result.
    Over here, we call that ‘shooting yourself in the foot’.
    Best wishes, Pete.
