Note on InBev's bid to take over Anheuser-Busch

A friend of mine from Brazil forwarded me this message about InBev, which is trying to aquire Anheuser-Busch.

Subject: A little more spice (InBev x Anheuser-Busch)
(google translation)

You knew that Ambev (InBev group, on Brazil) was a major donor campaign to prevent the Brazilian citizen possessing arms and ammunition?

Note that here it is almost impossible to bear arms legally, apparently not satisfied with it Ambev donated $ 400000.00 (four hundred thousand reais) to support the campaign to prevent even the possession of weapons by the Brazilian citizen, in the referendum of 2005.

Will be ironic attend a North American funding the anti-gun groups each time that drink a beer.

Anheuser-Busch itself is pro-gun. It lobbied for and donated money to the Missouri conceal-carry ballot initiative in 1999.

I think I speak for all of Wisconsin when I say:

That's fine, they don't make anything worth drinking anyways! My friends and family will continue to support local micro breweries in and near Milwaukee.

Thanks for the heads-up, though, I thought I had heard a rumor about this.

Does anyone actually drink Bud? Don't forget you will be funding them if you go to Bush Gardens and Sea World.
