We’re thinking of you, here in Europe. What with productivity in the US being almost naught now, I thought I’d aid the American Economy a bit. If politics puts your country to a stop, the least us EuroTrash can do is help you out. I mean, yous guys have helped us out before too.
So, here I am, behind my PC (which is probably 100% Asian, of course). I’m listening to the Tea Party (OK, they’re Canadian. Not all is perfect.), but I am currently opening a brand spanking new bottle of:
Jack Daniels Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey
Hot damn. I love this stuff. Nice li’l nightcap. Or maybe two, who knows, I’m not nearly tired.
Down she goes… AAHHHH!!
God bless the United States of America. Or at the very least, Tennessee
Drink one for me, Coldfire. It’s margaritas for me tonight.
BTW, I talked to my Grampa over Thanksgiving, and he was very moved by your words about remembering WWII - he said to thank you for them, and he’ll be passing them around to his fellow vets. How’s that for a hijack?
Eh. Jack Daniels is alright, I guess. I prefer Russian vodka, although any kind of alcohol is pretty hard for someone underage to acquire. (Not really because it’s illegal, more because it costs money).
Nope. It’s made in Mexico. One of the provisions of Nafta. Just like you can buy stuff that says made in the US that was actualy made in Mariana, you can buy whiskey from Mexico that says Lynchburg TN.
sorry to break it to you.
easy TVeblen. Do a search on google. You’ll find over 1900 sites with the words Jack Daniels and Mexico in them. I’m sure one of them can provide you the info you need.
and Southern Comfort has been a product of Guatamala for about 15 years now.
Thanks, oldscratch, but I already did the search on Google…and followed it up on AltaVista and Dogpile. There were plenty of hits, but I didn’t see any that contradicted the corporate claim. No, I didn’t plow through all the few thousand-odd citations. Somehow, I dunno, time available interferred.
I did find something passingly credible–and cited it openly–that called your allegation into question. I’m not doing your research for you, pal. Your contention, you back it up. Don’t bust my chops for providing a civil caveat. You got proof; credible, authoritative proof? Fine, then research it and post it.
In the meantime, don’t waste my time–or that of posters reading this.
