Its not my party but I'll still cry if I want to

I wrote half a post of an anti American diatribe. It was actually an attempt to explain why Australians have issues with America and some of its people. I might finish it one day. We enjoy having a tea party with our niece Little Jo. Sadly the pair of words tea party has been commandeered by some loons in the US.

Smitten by Britain is taking back the words.


  1. It's a love and hate thing with me, the US. They represent the best and worst of just about everything. Still, the realpolitik is that it's best to have a western-style parliamentary democracy as the number one superpower in the world. Once China takes over the top spot, Ich Bin Ein Tibetan.

  2. in regard of American Popular Culture, I like to point out that the two men who created it - Andy Warhola and Les Paul - were both POLISH.
    Then I like to remind all that white America was populated by those discontented English RELIGIOUS FANATICS who landed at Plymouth Rock ... and the earlier 'tea party' in Boston Harbour was probably a good thing.

    Agree with LL above, and must say that WE can bring China to it's knees by not buying CSR products they now own, or any of the plastic crap steaming up the bay in containers from their factories.

  3. It never occurred to me Lad, but yes best and worst. Lol at Ich Bin Ein Tibetan.

    And steam up the bay they certainly do Em Stacks. What can you buy if CSR sugar is not available? Bundaberg is hard to get and no name sugar has 'bits' in it.

  4. Andrew, thanks for the post. I'm glad you enjoyed the button. And just for the record, I didn't agree with the Boston Tea Party either. All that glorious tea, washed away. Blasphemy!

  5. It is a nice piece of art work as well as being clever. I see Jayne from Our Great Southern Land has added it to her page.
