The price of tea in China

Posted: June 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

1983 President Ronald Ragan in the night States gave a speech in order to drum up support for military action in Central America. In Reagan speech, he mentions how the city of Nicaragua is closer to Miami than San Antonio Texas in Washington DC.

The speech was an odd one and didn’t make much sense to me but it did help drum ups support. When I was younger I would use strange arguments to try and convince my mom to allow me to do something that she would not approve of.

My mom would say “What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?”

Last year I read this amazing book called; “The History of the world in 6 glasses”.  In the book, I read about how tea came from China and went all over the world.

When I hear about arguments for and against action I often try to ask myself ” What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?”  See many people have hidden agendas and will utilize manipulation through asking questions that have nothing to do with the argument at all. Being level headed makes a big difference. I encourage you today and tomorrow to work towards good stuff in a steady and consistent matter and when someone tries to encourage you to do something that seems brash ask yourself “What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?”
