Thread: Boycott Georgia!

  1. #1

    Default Boycott Georgia!

    A few months ago I'd be more likely to boycott Russia and praise Georgia for its economic reform efforts, but what it did on August 7th changes everything completely!

    Most people have probably never bought anything made in the nation of Sakartvelo (aka Georgia), a possible exception being their main agricultural exports: tea and especially wine. Note what their alphabet looks like and avoid it on all products. When buying European wine, check to make sure it is not from Georgia. If you see a wine store carrying Georgian wine, please let them know that this country has conducted repression and war crimes against its own civilians!

    If you know other companies associated with Georgia, please post about them here. Wikipedia currently lists only four: Bank of Georgia, Georgian Airways, TBC Bank, and Wissol Petroleum Georgia.

    This idea isn't fully baked yet, but it has to start with something...

    If you don't boycott the US, you aren't boycotting Georgia.

    I really wish more people were aware of what is really going on over there... Mostly so they can see how blatantly our media loves to lie.

    How about don't boycot anything at all. That's how Ron Paul thinks about it: be stubborn to their internal affairs and trade with them

    No, boycotting is actually free market solution. It is important to separate individual action from state action.

    We don't have to be stubborn to the internal affairs of others, we don't have to buy from China, for example. But we also should not make it policy to put blockades or trade restrictions on other countries.

    Yes, Georgia is clearly being a NATO puppet at this point, but one of the purposes of this boycott is to let them know they're not scoring any PR points with the American people. The problem is - they're getting more from out government than they ever could from honest trade. So how do we hurt them?

    So if a family makes wine in Georgia, we should boycott them because of what their government did is wrong?

    I never understood the idea of boycotting countries.. it hurts the people we want to help.

    Well I think that the goofy government "thinking" (so called ) goes like this, put pressure on the people, who will then put pressure on their government to change policy.

    Frankly, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me either.

    You can stop posting now; I think nobody is going to defend 'boycotting georgia' anymore.

    Well it seems to me that Russia is doing our job for us then..... So why attempt to destroy family business there, if it already hasn't been.

    If anything, buy more stuff from Georgia, so they can afford to come here and improve our economy

    Faux News and CNN Ironic The Communist News Network was just talking about how our market and people on wall street should boycott Russia and dump their stocks! I wonder how much more is Russia going to take from the wets before it gets pissed and do something about it kinda like how the US invaded Iraq for no reason but just because they could?

    Here is a question, who has actually been to georgia, talked with the citizens there?
    odds are not many of us and everything we are speaking about is 3rd party assumptions at best.

    We get our news from reporters and b.s. networks. What I would want to hear is from ACTUAL residents there and multiple ones to see what they actually believe and know about.

    Yes, for us it indeed is a "foreign entanglement", and U.S. already is involved through "advisers" and hired mercenaries. But for Russia it isn't. It had negotiated a right to maintain peace-keepers in that disputed region, who were fired on. This disputed region overwhelmingly sides with Russia and most of people living there hold Russian citizenship.

    I hate to perpetuate a bad joke about a company based in Atlanta U.S.A., but Coca Cola makes a great beverage for a capitalist revolutionary on the go. Refreshing, readily available, has just the right amount of caffeine, and comes in a calorie-free variety. Coke never initiated force against anybody (though some evil governments might have on their behalf, but it's the government that's evil).

    Now we're talking! But how? How do you boycott a company that mostly sells to the government? Tax resistance is the only answer!

    The thing is, these people don't know everything either. They just see their family being killed and then flee the country; depending on what origin they are from, they'll blame a government or both. In the end, they were also dependent of their Georgian/Russian newschannel.

    I've seen it in the Yugoslavian history: muslims on the ground there sometimes said, Milosevic was the guilty guy, but these people judge on their feeling; not on inside knowlegde (which you seem to think). To find the truth, you have to talk to the highlevel people (presidents, ambassadors, negotiators etc.) in about 20 years when they retire. If you are interested in realistic numbers of how many people died etc. it will take about 5 years (with Kosovo it took 5 years too) until they'll come up with a realistic number.

    It is important that America keeps East Europen countries on-side, as their support will be needed to accomplish the anti-nuclear defence shield against Iranian (haha) missiles.

    Time to piss off Putin and Russia...

    Wouldn't want to run out of potential enemies for the military industrial complex.

    Why not pay more taxes ? It's all good.
