A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Never Give A Democrat A Cookie…Or Pie…Or Lobster October 19, 2010

Remember this quote from Michelle Obama back during the 2008 campaign days?

The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.

—Michelle Obama

But Michelle never really gave up her $500 Lanvin tennis shoes, or trips to Spain for lobster fest …

I did and here is my story…

Sunday, I went grocery shopping as usual. Campbell’s soup was 10 cans for 10$, so I got some of those.  Brownberry bread was buy one get one free with my shoppers card.  I passed my favorite Sugar Wafer cookies by Nabisco- eek $4.99.  I went on by.  At the deli stand I requested Swiss cheese, smoked turkey and “Old Fashioned Loaf” meat.

While rolling by the seafood stand I espied two gorgeous large lobster tails.  There was a sale sign that said $5.99 each.  My eyes blinked in disbelief.   Scallops were nearby and they were beauties also.  Being economical, I asked for some salmon fillets.  The seafood clerk wrapped my fillets in the familiar white butcher paper and slapped the price tag on.   I had hardly noticed his outstretched hand because I was still gazing at the lobster tails.

“Miss,” he said waving the salmon.  “Is that all?”

I shook off my lobster lust and nodded my head grabbing the package of salmon.

The next stop was the meat counter for beef stew meat and a few steaks.  Surf and Turf was calling my name.  Still had a bit of gas in the grill- this could be the last hurrah so to speak for grilling season.  Okay, okay, okay…I will get the lobster tails.  My cart did a 90 degree turn and I smiled widely and told the seafood clerk ”  I have decided to get those lobster tails.”

I pointed to the only two lobster tails in the display case.  “Those,”  I claimed, chest sticking out like a peacock.   Afrocity gonna feast on some lobster TONIGHT!!!

The melted butter and lemon smell was aromatically playing over and over in my head.  My little treat for me too bad mother is dead- well not that it mattered- she was allergic to shellfish anyway.   Baked potatoes would be a great pairing- get in my Michelle Obama veggies-

“Forty-five dollars .”

And I could maybe invite my dad over to share or eat both tails my- ” HUH?”

“Forty-five dollars.”

NO!!!!  I looked at the sale sign and pointed ” It says lobster tails  $5.99 each -“

The seafood man came around the counter and laughed. ” Oh, that. That sale is for the small tails.  I am out of those.”

I must have looked like someone just told me Christmas was canceled because the poor man shrugged his shoulders and looked guilty.  ” The tails you pointed out are large tails, they are like twenty something each…”

I walked away from the counter.

“You don’t still want these? I wrapped them-“

With a grinch snarl, I shook my head and made a speedy getaway with my shopping cart. How embarrassing.  For a moment I thought just spend the $45.  If I put back the vanity light bulbs, fancy ravioli, Welch’s pomegranate blueberry juice with added fiber, Patsy’s Pasta Sauce, $4.99 Vanilla Chai Protein drink…the ten cans of soup- then maybe I could have the lobster tails.  And what does that counter seafood guy think of my race now?

“Cheap black people always want something for nothing.”

Maybe I should buy the tails just to prove that African American can afford lobster.

You see, even Afrocity succumbs to racial brainwashing at times.

When all was debated in my head and done, I did not buy the lobster tails and had stuffed chicken breasts for dinner.

Not as appetizing as surf and turf but with the recession, I could not justify paying so much for a meal for lil’ ol me.

We all need to start making some changes to how our families eat. Now, everyone loves a good Sunday dinner. Me included. And there’s nothing wrong with that. The problem is when we eat Sunday dinner Monday through Saturday.

–Michelle Obama

Yes my thermostat was set to 75 degrees and Barry Obama would not like that either.

We can’t drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times, whether we’re living in the desert or we’re living in the tundra, and then just expect every other country is going to say OK, you know, you guys go ahead keep on using 25 percent of the world’s energy, even though you only account for 3 percent of the population, and we’ll be fine. Don’t worry about us. That’s not leadership.

~~ Barack Obama


So I did not give up my piece of the pie.  I am selfish but turning my back on the lobster tails was a start…wasn’t it?

Anyway, this humorous video by RightChange explains why you should never give your piece of the pie or a cookie to a Democrat.

Liberal Summer Film Fest : Eat Lobster, Love, Pray August 31, 2010

Luncheon in Fur

In a recent post, I wrote about my intense dislike for bullshit. My writings also described the obviously millions of Americans who revel in its sustenance when it comes to any fantasy fulfilling pill to swallow from President Barack Obama.

I am mindful that the president is well liked.

I am mindful that for many, this man represents what was previously thought to be unobtainable.The forty acres and a mule has arrived. Rejoice! The African American standard has been raised.   We can all eat lobster now- that is if you can afford it.

From this post at the White House Dossier:

Obamas Depleting U.S. Lobster Supply

Keith Koffler 

August 25, 2010

So how much lobster are you having during these precarious economic times? What? You’ve had to cut back? No longer ordering it stuffed with crab meat, at least?

Well, if you happen to be the President of the United States or the First Lady, your lobster consumption is continuing at a robust pace.

Yes, the economy is still getting battered. And Tuesday night,  so was President Obama’s lobster.

According to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the president  savored some lobster tempura  at the trendy State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard. Oh, just the thought of it. If he brings some back to the White House for me, I’ll write whatever he wants.

Monday night at The Sweet Life Cafe in Oak Bluffs on the Vineyard it was the lobster pasta appetizer for the president and a surf and turf entrée – the “surf” being a lobster tail – for Mrs. Obama.

And what would the vacation to Maine in July have been without a taste of everyone’s favorite crustacean. The president did it in a little less genteel fashion that time, heading over to something called Stewman’s Downtown restaurant where he was served the “Lobster Experience” dinner – just regular lobster, corn and slaw.

But the Obamas’ lobster experience is not confined to these shores. Michelle Obama was barely off the plane during her voyage early this month to the Spanish Riviera when, according to the Spanish press, she dived into a feast of sea bass tartare, strawberry gazpacho and sardines, and a main course of lobster with seaweed risotto.

Michelle enjoyed the repast so much that she was right back at it on  August 14 during the Obamas’ two-day Panama City, Fla photo-op vacation. There, at the Firefly restaurant, it was more lobster for Michelle.

Let Them Eat Lobster!!!

Yes again, congratulations  Mr. and Mrs. President on raising the cuisine bar for blacks. We have finally made it to the top.

African Americans and seafood is an inside joke among us brothers and sisters.   When I was in college for a date if a guy really wants to impress a woman he would take her to Red Lobster.  Shrimp, crab, lobster, are all pretty expensive for a family on a budget- even more so if you are a struggling black college student.

Hearing language in the vein of  “Man, I ain’t taking her all out to get no lobster or anything…she ain’t all that!”

Or if you are a young woman like one classmate of mine :

” Shoot as good as I looking tonight that negro had better take me to get some snow crab and lobster. I just got my hair did and looking tight… “

was not uncommon.

Red Lobster is like the pleasure dome of culinary venues for many.  Cheddar biscuit and all you can eat heaven.

From Urban Dictionary:

red lobster

Often reffered[sic] to as “ghetto seafood”.

A place where rednecks, uneducated, ghetto, and often illiterate people go on special occasions, birthdays, aniversarries [sic], weddings. Redlobster is a restaurant which specializes in serving food to the lower portion of society which is why they serve what customers reffer to as, “fried skrimps” with “smashed pertaters”. If fathers day is the most confusing holiday for you, or if your entire extended family consists of five people which live in the same double-wide, your favorite restaurant is most likely red lobster.
“Hey hunny happy aniverarry were going to red lobster!!!”

Because dining out is a cultural event in some circles, I was not one bit shocked to hear the following on a Chicago bus recently:

“Obama is all up in that White House mutha eating lobster and steaks, brutha eating good like a black boy should,” laughed the older African American male in his mid to late fifties.

His companion also a black male, of about the same age chuckled along with him and added,  “Man I’d be eating lobster all damn day too if I was president…Ni–ga will kill for some lobster now…gotta wait for someone to die n’ shit before you can get some lobster…”

After this important  topic, the men then began a conversation about  a subject that was more serious and pertinent to the woes of African Americans in Chicago.  Apparently  they knew  a friend’s son  that was killed by random gunfire.  Not surpising seeing as how 300 people were shot in Chicago during the month of July:

From this story in the Chicago Tribune

303 people shot in July

By Annie Sweeney, Jeremy Gorner and Joe Germuska  August 21, 2010

…More than 300 people were shot in Chicago last month. At least 33 of them have died.

Some victims made headlines, like 13-year-old Robert Freeman Jr., who was fatally shot on his block while hanging out with friends. The city paused when two Chicago police officers — Michael Bailey and Thor Soderberg — were gunned down in uniform within weeks of each other.

But many more victims of shootings in July — historically among the city’s most dangerous months — suffered unnoticed by the rest of the city.

Crime has been holding steady in Chicago in recent years. Through July, there have been 1,089 shootings in the city, a 2.4 percent decrease over last year. This July, police counted 221 shooting incidents, compared with 229 in July 2009. A review of seven years worth of shootings showed similar numbers.

In other words, this was a typical July.

The Chicago Police Department declined to provide the number of shooting victims in July or comment about the month’s shooting tally. But a Tribune analysis of reported shootings, based on logs kept by police and reporting by the Tribune, counted 303 people who were injured in shootings last month.

The Tribune’s analysis showed that shootings occurred in predictable places — the Far South Side and West Side, for instance, where violence has been a pervasive problem for decades. It also showed how a bullet — even one that doesn’t kill — pierced a path of destruction in victims, families and the neighborhoods where they live.

So great! President Obama and his First Lady can live the Great American Lobster Fest!!

Now does this mean that his supporters must continue remain totally blind to the incompetency of the Obama administration?

Do you have to aid and abet an empty suit government?  Can you continue to ignore the complete and utterly blatant absence of checks and balances when it comes to the passage of” Obamalawz ” ?  Healthcare …executive orders,  immigration? Does this mean that you have not checked your bank balances recently?

Is there a lobster in every pot or just water stew with a few leaves of arugula floating around in it?

And yes in full disclosure- I have dined on lobster this summer. Jewel Foodstore had a sale on lobster tails at $6.99 each.  I bought two lobster tails.  $14 splurge for Afrocity and the next day I ate spaghetti with Ragu sauce for dinner and Beenie Weenies for lunch  to make up for it.

For liberals, the rich and  Christian conservatives are the wrongdoers.

I mentioned in many of my posts that liberals adore being victims and I will admit here that some are.  However, the people doing the fighting for the victims, are far from being victims and many of them never were victims. Not then, not when you voted for them because they “got you” and certainly not now.  They need victims in order to be elected. Once elected,  you stay a victim while they spoon our tax dollars down their throats.

They eat lobster while you eat that Hope n’ Change cake.

Mmmmm good huh?  Tastes like air.

Of all political ideologies liberalism, according to Democrats, is the most caring.

Really?

Did you know that in 2007  Sarah Palin gave more to charity than Obama and Joe Biden combined?  She also made less money than the then DNC high office nominees.  Much fodder was made out of Sarah Palin’s RNC bought wardrobe.  Debate encircled the Alaskan VP candidate and her choice of make-up, clothes, shoes, Kmart pampers.

“Sarah is so out of touch with American people,” a liberal acquaintance told me. ” She is so provincial. Big house, all of these kids…In Huffpo it was reported that she cost the state of Alaska millions in travel fees to cart around those brats and her snow ski bunny husband…They say she has a tanning bed in her house. IN HER HOUSE!!!”

You are probably wondering what Afrocity was doing at this point in the conversation.

Nothing.

My friend’s Palin hate was on autopilot. There was no stopping her and in fact, I took some sort of sick twisted tingle up my leg joy while watching her.

While bemoaning Sarah’s tanning bed, my friend never once mentioned Barack Obama’s discounted mob assisted mansion-ish purchase.  Not one word about First Lady, Michelle Obama’s Lanvin $565 tennis shoes, or her shopping sprees at Ikram (an upscale Chicago designer boutique).

Michelle Obama in her groovy $500 plus Lanvin shoes

$500 shoes worn to a charity event during a recession?

But somehow  in the eye’s of his adoring supporters,  the Obama’s are in touch with the American People.  Sure they are in touch with the American people…All of the American people  who attended Ivy League schools and were raised in Hawaii, and now live in mansions.  Class warfare on the part of liberals is like Wag the Dog.  Outsiders to limousine liberals do not understand this.  In contrast to Republicans  who don’t openly preach disdain for those who have, the liberal power brokers preach sacrifice and cry victim while secretly going home to maids, private schooling for their children, and obviously lobster, lobster and more lobster.

The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more. ” —Michelle Obama

I will give up my piece of the pie Michelle,  but only if you promise to give up your lobster.

Thursday Stitch N’ Bitch: “$5,950 Clutch” Time For Blacks During Economic Downturn July 9, 2009

Supposedly, the great achievement of the past election was that for the first time African Americans could feel as though they finally “made it”.  A black family is now in the White House.  We see our president dining on Kobe beef and jet setting to New York, Paris, and Italy. First Lady Michelle Obama is on the cover of high fashion magazines such as Vogue. Malia and Sasha are hanging out with the cast of the Harry Potter films in London.

Then we have Michael Jackson’s recent funeral in Los Angeles. That was not to shabby, a gold casket all star guest list. The event cost the ailing city of Los Angeles millions of dollars they did not have.  Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant just picked up another NBA Championship.  Looks like it is a pretty damn good year to be an African American.  If you take a look at mainstream media, the racial  distribution of wealth and power, seems to be pretty even or getting close.  The day that an African American  First Lady who hails  from a down to earth “keeping it real” family on Chicago’s South Side can carry a $5,950 bag, is the day that I would say “Hello Black People!  You’ve arrived!”

Remember how Sarah Palin was derided during the presidential campaign when the RNC bought her a nice wardrobe to borrow for her campaign speeches and debate? This was when the Democrats boasted about Michelle Obama and her J. Crew wardrobe. Funny, I didn’t know that J. Crew sold $5,950 purses.  Funny, that the RNC actually has a surplus in their budget while the DNC is in debt.

White House denies manufacturer’s boast that First Lady carried their $5,950 bag

DAILY NEWS STAFF

Thursday, July 9th 2009, 8:35 AM

Is First Lady Michelle Obama sporting a taste for ultra-expensive fashion pieces, or is she cementing her status as a savvy shopper?

Back in April she wore a pair of $540 Lanvin sneakers at a Washington food bank. Earlier this week (while strolling the wooded landscape outside of Moscow), she carried a sexy black clutch, which Italian luxury house VBH boasts is their shiny black alligator manila bag – with a retail sticker price of $5,950.

The White House flatly denies that Obama bought such a high-priced accessory, and says that she was carrying a patent clutch that retails for $875.

The First Lady, who has impressed with her chic, affordable style sense, embracing Everywoman brands like Gap and J.Crew, flashed the shiny handheld while walking with her husband, President Barack Obama, during their Monday meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his wife Svetlana.

Told that Obama’s office denied the bag was the high-end VBH clutch, Kelly Vitko, a rep for the company replied, “It’s definitely ours.

Hmmm, a retail sticker price of $5,950. That could get a few homes out of foreclosure.

Hmmm, a retail sticker price of $5,950. That could get a few homes out of foreclosure.

My what pretty playthings come with being the first black President of the United States.  I like this “post-racial” America but if the fairy tale is true, that African Americans can now live happily ever after, why the fear of losing affirmative action? And why the sudden need to claim that comments which bring to light Michael Jackson’s strange behavior are racists. Is it me or the black seem more insecure since Obama has taken the White House?

limousine_liberalThe pragmatists say that Obama’s presidency has advanced African Americans. You can say that if you take a look at black celebrities however one could get a better sense of the breadth and diversity among African Americans if you look at class rather than race. Obama, Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Tiger Woods are all of color. They are also wealthy and in a different economic class than the majority of African Americans.

The attacks on Gov. Sarah Palin are about gender and class. The elite bureaucracy in Washington, DC includes Republicans and Democrats, blacks and whites, women and men.  Over the last 48 hours, I have seen Sarah Palin called stupid, hick, uneducated, inexperienced, and “retarded”.  Palin possesses a college degree, yes it is not from an Ivy League university but it is still a college degree. Yet she is deemed “uneducated”. It is about class.

There is one critical mistake President Barack Obama is making that I believe will land him as a one term president. In allowing the left wing nut jobs in his administration to run the show; in allowing a liberal congress to pass and spend too much, too fast- Obama is headed for disaster.

It is obvious that the stimulus package is being misused and is a bust. The Democrats won’t admit this however there are signs that they are beginning to see this. Obama’s foreign apology tours are also backfiring among those who do care about our nation’s security. There are lots of people like me who would prefer for Obama to use his world renowned rhetorical skills to actually cause some good in the world rather than apologizing for past sins of the United States.

Obama blew it with the situation in Iran. Obama is blowing it with the economy. Obama and his friends see that four years can go by pretty fast,  especially when two of the years have to focus on a re-election campaign which is why he is already holding fundraisers.  He was wrong on the stimulus and now according to pollsters, Americans see Obama as the sole owner of this economic downturn.

So what do you do if you are David Axelrod, the supreme architect of Obama’s winning 2008 campaign? How do you get a president re-elected if his administration has done a poor job concerning domestic and foreign issues? What do you do when the Republicans save for several RINOs refuse to cast one vote for your liberal captain trade bills…The elephant has no part in this remember?  What do you do? You lie and you use the race card again.  What began as a historic moment for African Americans is now turning into racism still exists, affirmative action is in jeopardy, Michael Jackson is being treated unfairly by the media plus throw in abortion and gay marriage and boom Obama gets re-elected on liberal identity politics again.

The CNN network has decided to run a second part to its Black in America Documentary.  RINO Colin Powell is still saying we have a problem in the GOP with racism. You see where this narrative is going. Obama will win in 2012 with a shotty  presidential record and on the race card if we allow this continue. There are some, or many that will vote for Obama no matter what abysmal job he is doing in office.

Powell said he explained his logic in choosing Obama.  Which was what? That the GOP should go more moderate and yet you chose vote for Obama, a liberal in favor of your friend and moderate Republican John McCain. There is no logic in that.

As my friend from Little Green Footballs “Deseeded” once said “There are two kinds of voters. Smart ones and stupid ones.”

African Americans can continue to vote for these limousine liberals black or white, who do nothing for them while they are dying in Chicago by the dozens. They should still feel good about the race afterall Michelle Obama is carrying a $5,950 clutch purse.
