Drink Bacardi

The ultra-liberal Guardian Newspaper of London thinks people should boycott companies who "trade unethically" and includes Bacardi on its list of bad actors because of its "counter-revolutionary activities." They quote the Revolutionary Communist Group:

They claim that ever since Bacardi rum's Cuban assets were forcibly nationalised by Castro in 1960, the company has covertly financed repeated US plots to overthrow him... "Bacardi shares the responsibility for the suffering imposed on Cuba over the last 40 years by those who refuse to accept the socialist path chosen by the Cuban people..."

This sounds like a reason to drink more Bacardi if you ask me (What a cool website!). Hat tip: Andrew Sullivan
