Mumbai Tea


Just arrived in Mumbai a few hours ago and am near the famous Gateway of India pictured above.
I’m having tea with some TWN folks at noon here at the Hotel Taj Mahal Palace & Tower. If others see this in time, you are welcome to join. Just email me at to let me know you are coming.
Tonight and tomorrow I’ll be participating in a set of meetings with Laura D’Andrea Tyson, Martin Walker, David Hale, Paul Laudicina and others in the A.T. Kearney-Wharton India CEO Forum. And then I’ll be back in D.C.
Some of my readers tell me that Ron Paul is really surging. I’ll have to kick the tires of that. I don’t see the genuinely straight-talking Ron Paul getting out ahead yet, but I’ve been wrong before.

    Regarding Ron Paul:
    When a devout believer of Ayn Rand begins to attempt ‘straight talk’, it becomes warped by the Randian insanity. He can also talk the social Republican talk, but mixes that with a level of isolationism that hasn’t been seen in public since the bombing of pearl harbor. Don’t forget that he previously ran for President on the Libertarian ticket.
    So what does a ‘surge’ for Ron Paul look like? A hundred percent increase from 1% of polled Republicans to 2% ?

    Top 6 Reasons Not to Drink Tea
    1- The chemicals used to remove caffeine from tea are carcinogenic as there is no swiss water method as with coffee.
    2- The caffeine in tea takes twice as long to eliminate from the body.
    3- Depletes the adrenal glands just like coffee
    4- Decreases melatonin production = sleep disorders like insomnia
    5- Caffeine acts as a diuretic (by the way, caffeine is a strong diuretic, which depletes the body of certain vitamins and minerals, such as “C”, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, and potassium
    6- All teas contain flouride. Flouride is accumulative toxin. Only 50% of this poison is excreted from the body per day. The other half stays and accumulates, particualry in the brain & bones. Water contains lead & aluminium. Flouride attaches to lead & aluminum ions and heightens accumulation and increases these toxins metals to the brain. Aluminum flouride showed capacity to damage brain and kidneys in lab rats
