How hard is it for any of us to go Coke-free?

Easy for me; I drink water and coffee. I'm well down the road to Communitarianism.

I say we ban all the coke from their country in the US....

/good luck with that

well that website seems legit

Forbes points out something "curious" about Bolivia's plan to ban Coke. The Coca-Cola corporation isn't talking, but coca leaf extract is said to be an ingredient in the secret recipe for Coke:

Since when is this a secret? They use the leftover leaves after the cocaine has been taken out

\it's the rules. You link to a blog, it must be said. Page 33, paragraph 4, sentence 3.
\\and I'm never going to Bolivia now...not that I had an excuse before, but still

As a Pepsi man, I have to say incredibly easy.
Big Red is pretty awesome as well.

One of these things is not like the others.

"How hard is it for any of us to go Coke-free?"

Coke is just a caffeine delivery medium. There are many others.

how cute... bolivia thinks it matters.

Bolivia's president, Evo Morales: "The planets will line up [on the twenty-first of December] after 26,000 years."

With what?

Some of the best coke I ever did was from Bolivia.

Forbes quotes Choquehuanca?
is that pronounced chokey-wanka?

isn't chokey wanka mayan for david carradine?

Well, they do have synchronized swimmers being a fountain, so your argument is invalid.

Yeah... Isn't it illegal to import coca leaves UNLESS you're Coca-Cola?

Cut off our nose to spite our face?

Next time I say, "let's go somewhere like Bolivia"...

It's bullshiat:

Here's the actual story:

Bolivian officials played down a recent pledge to ban Coca-Cola, saying the words were taken out of context. Their aim was to encourage locals to switch to a homemade peach soft drink instead of the famous American soda.

Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca said that December 21, 2012 - the day the Mayan lunar calendar enters a new cycle - "has to be the end of Coca-Cola, the end of selfishness, of division."

"The planets will line up after 26,000 years. It is the end of capitalism and the beginning of communitarianism," he said. International media ran his words, claiming the country planned to expel one of the world largest soft drink manufacturers.

But Choquehuanca actually meant that December 21 "ought to be the end of Coca Cola, and the beginning of Mocochinci," a local drink made from dried peaches, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Consuelo Ponce.

He's just posturing and shiat, not any real ban.

Makes great tea too. The leaves are rather useless for cocaine unless you have tons of them.

/Snuck some coke leaves back last time I was in Peru

Symbolism backfires when you make something seem more significant by singling it out to be "defeated".

Oh, and...
Annual revenue of the Coca-Cola Company: $47.51 billion Real GBP of Bolivia:$17.07 billion

I used to date the sister in law of the Bolivians Coca Cola CEO, and when I heard this I gave her a call, and we yakked about it, she said it was a publicity stunt, coke will still be sold.

Bolivia is still pissed that my Colombian brethern grow the yayo in their country.

Screw you Bolivia, let the people have the freedom to drink what they want!

AlwaysRightBoy: I say we ban all the coke from their country in the US....

You're missing the new market.....instead of boats sneaking onto american shores filled with cocaine and going home empty, they can now go home with smuggled Coca Cola in them.....

I need a cigarette boat, a map of bolivias coast, and three tons of Coca Cola please.....

I don't know about you, but a lot of these threads can be linked back to this thread. In the sense that it is OK and fully legal to lie to everyone. Of course countries and politicians are exempt from this type of thing..

/keep on a herp-a-derpin

Morales charges that "Neither the US nor capitalist countries have a good reason to maintain the ban on coca leaf consumption." Is his thought to suggest that such a ban on coca leaves is an affront to Bolivia's traditions, rather than out of serious concerns about illegal narcotics?

Satanic_Hamster: Screw you Bolivia, let the people have the freedom to drink what they want!

You mean the freedom to drink what international marketing conglomerates tell you you want.

I seriously hope you're joking. I mean, not the smuggling part, that's obvious.

But Bolivia is a landlocked state on the other side of the world, good luck getting there on a boat.

The Coca Cola company doesn't make their main money selling soda.

They make money selling syrup and branding to a massive network of bottlers and distributors who most of the time are granted exclusive territories.

This is a power struggle between Bolivians, not colas.

You are. The idea that the planets somehow "line up" and thus cause global catastrophe is an article of faith with some fools, and not at all hyperbolic.

How is the Expat community down there? I'm thinking of going in December. Want to see what it might be like to live there. In the mountains, not the jungle ...

Only ever been in Colorado mountains, not sure I could take altitude sickness.

I worked at the olymic games once and the coke reps were utter douches.

I remember once being told rudely by a rep that we couldnt drink our "outside" drink in our lunch room on our break because it wasnt a coke product.

fark the olympics and fark coke

On Dec. 2, Bolivia will kick Coca-Cola out of the country to "celebrate the end of capitalism," Obama's re-election, peace in the Middle East, the end of global warming and your mom getting an honest job

Not sure what you mean. None of them is going to happen.

The worst part is that I could actually see that happening, Not the ban, which is ridiculous, but the government trying to propose it.

The_Original_Roxtar: how cute... bolivia thinks it matters.

It matters in Boliva you jingoistic moron.

So, does that mean Pepsi are a bunch of farking Commies?

Then Mountain Dew invades and takes over.

/Mountain Dew: superior
//All other sodas: inferior

Why are even a few people buying this? Subby was not subtle.
