In Michigan, I would be interested in knowing which properties and interest are owned by the Simon Property Group. I certainly would like to know where I personally wont go to patronize, support, etc.. Especially not after the conveniently timed use of a reciprocal property agreement to shut down one of the most successful Tea Party event locations. Timing which left organizers scrambling to relocate, and ultimately cancel that event.
The Atlanta Tea Party was its Independence Day celebration in Gwinnett, after losing its location due to the objection of Gwinnett Place Mall. (a Simon company) The Tea Party had been scheduled to take place in the parking lot of the old Macy’s building at Gwinnett Place since March.
Not surprising given the reported interest the simon group owners have in the success of the Obama administration. In fact, it would be interesting to find out what the Simon group might have to gain with the ongoing “stimulus” as well. What financial interests, rent seeking, or other endeavors do they have tied to the administrations plans?
Stop believing in coincidences.. we have a bit of tea to dump overboard.
