The Moustache Brothers + Freedom of Speech in BurmaIn Mandalay, Lonely Planet discusses a political comedy routine by the Moustache Brothers. I went with some fellow travellers, and learned a decent amount about Burma. I am ever thankful to live in the USA.

1The Moustache Brothers is something to check out in Mandalay, but it is comparatively expensive for the "show" (8000K) and it is a mixed bag, a lot of amateur dancing by family members, but never-the-less it still gives some insight to the political and cultural aspect of Myanmar

obviously with Murdoch FOXy news and CNN propaganda Goetehs words ring ever true Ha! Ha!
as Goethe once wrote:
"There's none more hoplessly enslaved
Than those who Falsely think they're Free"
as for the moustache brothers the generals tolerate them as long as they do it in English to tourists and stick to their 40 old ineffectual outdated routine.
now that democracy rules OK , with good old US of A wedging its foot in the door its a different ball game, or is it?
Democracy comin to USA

Good grief, Mr Funspirit. Don't you realize how condescending this sounds on an international forum.

6I don't know, I'm thankful to live in the USA too, but that doesn't mean that I think we're better than anyone else.
Monty, I don't know where you get your news from, but in the US almost every news source has a bias, almost all of it to the left, with Fox news about the only source that has a bias to the right. I get my news from several sources, including Fox, because I want to see the whole picture, not just what some editor with an agenda wants me to see. I suspect you're like a lot of people and only get your news from a source that shares your view of things.

8I recollect the ex wife of our now famous American swimmer to ASSK's house on Inwya lake, Mr mormon Jon Yettaw saying that, until he swam to her house no one in America even knew where Burma was. I must admit if Americans know as much about freedom of speech, as they 'apparently' do about Geography, (very little from those I have met) the world would be a safer place. The next US target apparently those sweet unassuming Persian people, who threaten democracy by abusing their freedom of speech (after dinner Jab,) Ha! Ha! . stang67 obviously you also assume too much in what you read, when you make such statements as to the source of my "suspect" views Ha! Ha! one mans propagand here appears to be anothers fact. No wonder Rupert Murdoch thought that true democracy can only be where he rules the press, along with the politicians ie Singapore lol come back Bush all is forgiven lol
that'l cost you another beer tabmow Ha! Ha!

9Monty, have you seen this article?
It's a survey that was done in the UK where they asked 16 to 23 year olds a series of questions regarding where basic foods come from.
Fewer than half of them know that butter comes from dairy cows. 8% of them think it comes from beef cattle while another 8% think it comes from wheat.
One third of them don't know that eggs are laid by hens. 8% think they come from wheat.
8% of this age group think that bacon comes from wheat.
Only half of this age group knows that steak comes from beef cattle while 12% think it comes from maize or wheat.
Seriously Monty, Wheat? Ha Ha Ha!
And you think Americans are ignorant because they don't all know where a country on the other side of the world is located?
Maybe your fellow countrymen should take a break from the geography lessons and take a field trip to a farm. Ha! Ha! Ha!

11As my namesake Michelle Montaigne:
"To make judgements about great and high things
A soul of the same stature is needed;
Otherwise we ascribe to them
That vice which is our own"
Obviously the daily Mail has a reputation for explaining away right wing policies, to what it views as a degenerate generation, unworthy of Camerons "Fairer society" that intends to re distribute the wealth of the country to his team of Hooray Henrys, (mstly bankers since leaving Harrow Eton and Oxbridge, in order to create employment for these mental retards and make these degenerates work for a living instead of scrounging on social benefits Ha! Ha!. "let them eat cake" syndrome, obviously you are easily swayed by such propagated propaganda as I already suggested in #3
I blame all those drugs that American farmers feed their cattle on that does it Ha! Ha!
If only they hadn't thrown all that tea in the boston harbour, at the Boston Tea party, then America could have remained a pleasant "Tea Drinking" colony with proper spelling and spoken English and the World would be a much safer place ;-))) Ha! Ha!
