Ruby Tuesday - Mini Cooper

Where can you see a red mini Cooper hanging overhead upside down?
Only at New York's World Financial Center.
I have no idea.......

You too, can participate in Ruby Tuesdays! Just post a photo of something red, and link to her blog, Work of the Poet. Then go there, and sign up. Or if you don't have a blog of your own, you can send me your Ruby pics and I'll post them for you!

It's upside down probably because it's made by BMW and no self respecting Jew should ever drive one!

Oh, I think they hung it upside down just to get people's attention!


“I don’t have time,” my grandfather said,
“to dither around and stand on my head,
pretending that crimson is blue, not red—
just tell me the truth, if you please.

“I’m much too old for being lied to,
so tell me the truth about the rose hue
that colors the sky when the day is through
and adds a bright blush to the trees.

“Some call it red and some call it pink,
some call it strawberry wine-colored ink;
I call it rubicund, that’s what I think—
now leave me alone, if you please.”

I hope you have the same sentiment towards Ford because Henry Ford was a big anti-semite and he wrote a lot of published works very degrading to the Jews. And he is also mentioned in Mein Kampf and Heinrich Himmler described Ford as "one of the most valuable, important and witty fighters" and Baldur Von Schirach who was convicted in the Nuremberg trials said he was greatly influenced by Fords writings.

So before everyone gets all crazy about German cars remember Ford was huge anti-semite and his family still runs the business.

I know your style; "we should just forgive and forget, the whole world hates us any way." I strongly reject any such arguments, without going into a three page essay on why. We don't buy German products. As for Henry Ford - he should burn in hell (as I am sure he is). But the Ford company does not represent what the German companies do (at least today) and do not have the same associations and feelings. Call it a double standard if you will...I don't care. I have a feeling that many German families would strongly agree with my sentiments.
