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

When Harry Met Salad: Afrocity Encounters The Organic Police April 27, 2010

The flowering of the organic produce culture during the 1990’s never quite spread to my stomach or the dwindling funds available in my pocket book.  I have nothing against organic produce.  I just do not buy it on the regular basis.

I have great respect for our society’s heightened awareness concerning the dangers of pesticides and other toxins used in the farming industry. However, I don’t lose any sleep over eating a “conventional” non-organic anjou pear.

Do I care about my diet?

Am I concerned with what goes into my body?  Yes, of course I am. Truthfully,  I am more worried about my salt intake and sugary food consumption than I am about the pesticide levels in my ginger beer.

For the purposes of full disclosure, recently I have not been happy with my choice of diet.  I eat a lot of Kettle Brand Sea Salt and Vinegar potato chips.  Burgers and fries make my menu when I can’t afford the time to make a real meal. Pizza on Friday nights. Ice cream, cake, lots of carbs. I work and I get too lazy to cook. The microwave is my saving grace when I pop in a Stoufer’s Swedish Meatball frozen meal.

I should eat healthier meals, get more grains and fiber in my diet -drink more water.  There are times when I actually do decide to work on my eating habits.   This past Sunday was one of those times.

I had just made a stop to my local Blockbuster Video and rented Crazy Heart and The Lovely Bones.   The Whole Foods store was a hop skip and a jump around the corner from Blockbusters. I thought I would pick up something good for my body.  Yesm the Kettle chips were there but I would also get salad fixings, some fiber filled smoothie juices, maybe some smoked salmon.

Brevity marks my strategy to sane, calm, uneventful visits to Whole Foods Market.  Let’s face it.  Whole Foods is a liberal’s haven. Hemp muffins, organic cat food, Obama sweat pants, white guys with dreds…Peace, love and liberalism. Afrocity gets a rash when she is in the place for too long.  I hit the automatic door, breeze past the floral section, make a bee line for the Naked juice section.

Round the corner past the seafood counter and stock boy who smells like cumin and gluten free cookies, pick up a can of Wellness cat food just in case I am too busy to make it to my regular pet store.

As I near the counter, I grab an evil salt and grease bag of Kettle sea salt chips.  Then presto, I am out of there like a happy tea partier.

That is usually how it works. ..How it was supposed to work until Sunday April 25th. This one particular cold rainy Chicago day was full of monkey wrenches. My visit to Whole Foods was one of them.

Everything was proceeding as planned.  I got my Naked Juice it was on sale for $4.99.   I decided that I needed more fiber. Salads are fun and I could throw in some avocados. Hmmm think I will get some pre-packaged salad and this is where things went terribly wrong for me.

AFROCITY: [Stands looking at refrigerated salad selections.  Organic choices, arugula (ugh), Boston Lettuce. Notes that the same bag of Fresh Express pre-cut salad is a whole dollar cheaper at other Chicago markets.  Does not really want to pay $3.99 for a bag of salad…Maybe wants spinach but would like something with crunch like iceberg.  Sees a bag that costs $2.49 on high shelf .  Notices a Whole Foods employee with long dreds wearing a do-rag,  stocking bags of salad. Decides to ask him help her get bag of iceberg lettuce  salad because she is too short and his cart of boxes is in her way]  Excuse, me could you reach that for me? [Points to bag of salad]

PRODUCE GUY:   Sure. [He reaches for bag of salad, hands to Afrocity]

AFROCITY:   Thank you. [Takes bag of salad.  Notices that it is smaller than it appeared on the shelf.  Sees that it is organic and realizes why it was $2.49 for a smaller portion.   Stands there holding bag of organic salad. Feels like it is not a good bargain.  Could use some spinach anyway.  Hmmmmm…Sigh…Well Fresh Express is $3.99 but it is a bigger bag and has more varieties like 50/50 (half iceberg/half spinach)…Okay will go with the Fresh Express…Now what to do with this bag of salad that I won’t buy.  Leave it here on top of the bananas?  Will just ask nice produce guy to put salad back]

Can you put this back for me? I have decided that I do not want it. [hands bag of salad back to produce man]

PRODUCE GUY: [looking puzzled takes bag of salad and places it back on shelf]

AFROCITY: [Turns and grabs bag of Fresh Express 50/50 drops in basket turns to leave]

PRODUCE GUY: Oh, no. Wrong move. You put back the organic.

AFROCITY: [startled] Excuse me?

PRODUCE GUY:   You just traded that bag of organic salad for a bag that is filled with toxins

AFROCITY:   …um…yes I know [and don’t care] I know.

PRODUCE GUY: Organic is better for your body that was a wrong move.

AFROCITY: [shugs shoulders]

Yeah, yeah [tries to walk away, realizes that produce guy has come to stand in front of her]

PRODUCE GUY:  [looking manic while pointing to bag of salad in Afrocity’s basket]  Do you know what they do to that salad…They wash it with chemicals-

AFROCITY [irritated] I KNOW okay. [brushes by produce guy]

PRODUCE GUY: That goes into your body and builds up over time-

AFROCITY:   [pissed off and feeling judged] Look, I am an adult. I do not drink or smoke. I have never taken drugs in my entire life if I want to eat-

PRODUCE GUY:   No! That does not matter. It is not about not smoking or drinking. The toxins build up in your body from eating inorganic and your not smoking is not doing you any good if you continue to poison your system with non-organic products-

AFROCITY:   [abruptly walks away knowing this guy obviously has control issues and is some sort of organic junkie freak-a-zoid. rolls eyes. Disperse immediately. Moonbat alert ]

Immediately after this rude encounter, there was little I could do to contain my disgust.   I stomped to the snack aisle and grabbed my Kettle chips, slammed them into my basket. Checked out in a huff.  How dare he lecture me? It is really not any of his business what I put into my body.  I bet he is a liberal and I bet he is pro-choice. How would he feel if a pro-lifer was outside of Planned Parenthood telling women “Don’t go in there. Do you know what that will do to your body?”

If I want to eat conventional, non-organic ginger root that is my damn business and I do not need employees of grocery stores looking down their noses at me. I mean WTF is happening to this country?   The entire exchange reminded me of the Sylvester Stalone movie Demolition Man (1993).  Stalone  plays a policeman that is cryogenically frozen in the year 1996 and reawakens to face crime and a new world in the year 2032.   One of my favorite scenes in the movie involves Stalone and Sandra Bullock who is his partner.   In this YouTube clip at about 4:46, Stalone is at a dinner and wants salt on his meal. Bullock explains to him that salt is not illegal.

In 1993 when I first saw this movie, I really did not believe that our society would ever come to this.  Now I am no longer so certain.  We have sin tax on everything from bottled water to candy bars. You get taxed for tanning.  New York wants to ban salt.  Whole Foods baggers look at you like you are Hitler’s hairstylist if you request a paper bag. Of course you are a total ugly wasteful American if you do not bring your own bags to the grocery store.  So what now?  You can’t pick up a harmless bag of conventional salad without a pap smear invasive lecture from some produce guy?

Liberals are all about choice when it comes to abortion but what about everything else? They tell us that we should not have guns.  We should not be allowed to pray in school, unless you are of course Middle Eastern or some other non-American then it is kewl to let you openly observe your religion.  You can’t be a Tea Partier without being a racist.  You must get government health care. You must pay taxes.

Where has the choice gone? To the dogs? Or should I say jackasses?

Compromised organic lifehood was my judgment.  Guilty as charged. Velcro some scarlet letter on my chest.  But I am Afrocity and Afrocity does not go down without a fight.  This morning I called Whole Foods and asked to speak with a manager. I explained the incident to her and she was quite thoughtful. She agreed that the produce man’s behavior was inappropriate.  I further pressed the issue by saying if Whole Foods feels that conventional produce is bad for its customers then they should not be selling it. The manager agreed and felt it was wrong for the employee to “bad mouth” a product that was sold in its store. She fully understood my humiliation and apologized.

I appreciated her response and felt satisfied with the outcome of my complaint.

The moral of this true incident is simple.  It is not the place of anyone to decide what we should and should not consume, especially the Federal Government.  Regulation of drugs, tobacco, and pesticides is one thing but when the government begins to micromanage our food choices, America loses that freedom and liberty luster that makes it shine. If I want salt on my chocolate cake and my blood pressure is as high as a kite that is my business.  Food, like sexual partners, is a lifestyle choice. Some eat healthier than others.  Some women like other women. It is your business what you do with your life as long as you are not hurting other people.  We do not need whistler blowers coming up with a blacklist of people who eat non-organic produce anymore than we need a list of women considering abortions.

Now let There Be Peas and Choice on Earth!!!

Moonbat Monday: Tea Party Haters- Ugly and Amazing April 12, 2010

So much for the left wing being open, tolerant and understanding.

The right to free speech and assembly are American freedoms that the left seems to believe is only available to them. Why else would the Tea Party movement unnerve them so much to the point that they attempt to discredit it as a racist bunch of rednecks?  If you attend a Tea Party rally,  some skinhead is sure to be there just thinking the “N-word” .  Even if you are an African American Tea Party participant, you are simply invisible to the liberals.  No, No, there are no blacks in the Tea Party and someone is there about to say the “N-word”.  He/she  doesn’t have to say it but a liberal knows they are thinking it.  Unlike left wing protesters, Tea Party folks are hateful anti-Obama racists out to kill our president.

From I Own The World

Liberal moonbats are psychic clairvoyant mind readers you know.  Someone was thinking that awful word at the Tea Party. How else could you explain liberal claims of John Lewis being called racially derogatory remarks without there being any proof on tape? If John Lewis and the AFL-CIO head Richard Trumpka (aka union scum),  says racists are at Tea Party rallies then betcha by golly it must be true.

I love it!  Protesters of Tea Party protesters.  Andrew Breitbart just imagined those liberals throwing eggs at the Tea Party bus.  As if in a moonbat fever,  some liberals so badly want to discredit the Tea Party movement that they will stoop so low in the donkey cesspool to serve as Tea Party poseurs.

The blacks at the Tea Party rallies must be vampires because their image does not capture on liberal video tape.   All people of color love Obama right?  So this African American man who created a YOU TUBE video describing why blacks should NOT be Democrats is just some illusion?

Liberals just don’t get it.  Obama’s election is actually a blessing in disguise for conservatives.  With their golden ass made in God’s image now seated in the White House, their behavior has been on auto-pilot and without filters.  Now they have finally outed themselves as the most oppressive, racist, controlling and manipulative political party known to Americans. The peaceful liberal protest and shining happy people fighting for freedom of speech for all has been debunked. It is okay to hate a president if he is a Republican.



I have said to my PUMA sisters that you can waste your time attempting impossibly to save the Democrats from their own poison. They are a train wreck.  No longer what they once were, the Party of ASS is now only a shill for Obamabots and socialism. Drinking Kool Aid by the gallons, five swallows at a time without stopping to check out their reflection in the mirror of truth.  Dribblings of purple dye all over their mouths and shirts. They look absolutely and positively ugly and amazing.

Daily Devotionals for Moonbats September 28, 2009

Filed under: Moonbats — afrocity @ 12:52 PM
Tags: , ,

3304437668_692f74ccefMy inbox has began to tense up a bit with the amount of emails I have received asking me to pray for our president.

Not pray for our country mind you but to pray for Barack Obama himself against the evil Republicans , racists that wish to do him harm by “telling lies”( which are most likely the truth) to bring him down by opposing Obama’s health care reform package.  I was instructed to say a special prayer against Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck of FOX News.

I do not attend church. That does not mean that I do not believe in organized religion.  I consider myself to be spiritual. For me that means I read my Bible (occasionally) and I pray every morning when I wake up.

Among my favorite topics for prayer are support of our troops, America’s safety, good sales, my continued health, happiness and success.  I suppose that someday I will die eventually and I pray that God guides me to fulfill whatever destiny or role in life he wanted me to.

On occasion, I will pray for people that I read about in the news, mostly young people who have died in violent accidents.

Upon seeing the beauty of a rainbow or a firefly, right that instant, I thank God for the miracle of nature and science.

Sunday September 20, I was driving down an Illinois highway when I caught sight of this rainbow. I pulled into a gas station to get some pictures. No one seemed to notice or care that it was there but me.

Sunday September 20, I was driving down an Illinois highway when I caught sight of this rainbow. I pulled into a gas station to get some pictures. No one seemed to notice or care that it was there but me.

A long time ago when President Bill Clinton “did not have sexual relations” with Monica Lewinsky, I finally got the message that leaders are flawed.  Soon after, I ceased praying for specific world leaders. Instead I pray for all life and that God’s will to be done.  My daily devotional routine may not be fair and certainly it will anger my acquaintance who mailed to say “pray for Obama.”

b-obama_jesus_matthews_olberm-peoples-cube

However, being the devil’s advocate that I can sometimes be, I wondered if people actually prayed for Adolph Hitler? For success in his “movement”?

Did people pray for Mussolin? Idi Amin?

It is hard to imagine but I bet someone did.

Before my readers go into a tizzy,  I WANT TO CLARIFY that I am not comparing President Obama to any of the aforementioned awful dictators.  Afrocity is staunchly opposed to any attempts to liken Obama to Adolph Hitler.

Two different eras, two different men.

I discourage conservatives from using those images.

President Obama’s recent whine at last Saturday’s  Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner concerning foreign response to his  critics and similarities to Hitler proves that the liberals seem to forget that their moonbat brigade often depicted George W. Bush as Hitler during many protests.

The point I am attempting to make involves my personal decision to pray or not pray for a person- particularly a world leader. From what I have seen of Obama, I am not quite certain what his full intentions are.
I am sure that America is a good country with good people that needs the support of God or whatever supreme being might be somewhere out there to lend a hand. That is what I pray for.

Moonbat Monday: Your Baby Is Not Racist, But You May Be A Moonbat September 14, 2009

Moonbat in Training

Am I the only who feels that the presidency of Barack Obama has led to a national race baiting contest?

Just line up at the county fair like hog calling.

“You hair is so nappy that you look like a jelly donut with a Brillo pad on top”

Moonbat mom

It is Louduous RaceriumBaitidae moonbat season again: (Order: liberalis, Family: Obamabutticus). : Race Baiters.
No one is safe from being a racist, not minorities, not your Persian cat, not even your own fetus as it slumbers in the womb.  Sunday is a day that I feel the urge to run to the bookstore. Yesterday was a special treat because I had a coupon from Borders for $2 off a magazine of my choice. Great! I can get that September issue of Italian VOGUE I wanted without feeling so guilty about the US $15 price tag and 10.25% sales tax imposed upon me by the great Cook (crook ) County politicians. I need something stimulating to read while I am accidentally overdosing on aspirin before my pre-Blago court trial briefings (wink).

As I entered my local Borders, I was struck by a very amusing sight. It was not your usual bookstore scenes that make you go “ugh”.  There was no metrosexual masturbating to The Advocate in the CD section or the abusive husband yelling at his wife for taking to long to get the money out of her pocketbook. This time it was an actual magazine cover, Newsweek in fact. Stopping dead in my tracks, I squinted to make sure that what I was seeing was indeed what I thought.  It was and I sort of went “ugh”.

Recent Cover of Newsweek.

Recent Cover of Newsweek.

Abruptly, I laughed and walked away to the fashion magazine section. Seriously I did.  Why? Because I am fed up with “race in my face”.

Having your child need therapy...priceless.

Having your child need therapy...priceless.

Sure it is better to have a dialogue about race than no dialogue at all but this is getting beyond ridiculous.  I am every much against babies being implicated as racists and you should be too. Isn’t life difficult enough as it is without burdening our children with our social Obamabotic obsessions? In terms of conditioning, there is really no difference between creating a child that is hyper-uber politically and environmentally correct and anti-racists and the black family that indoctrinates their child into believing that the world is against him because of his skin color.  Is free-will still being sold at a store near you?

Sexist Beatdown: Racist Babies Edition

by Amanda Hess

Sep. 11, 2009

Bad news, parents: YOUR BABY IS PROBABLY A RACIST, and that means that you’ve got a whoooole lot of explaining to do. According to a Newsweek cover story, studies show that children as young as six months old “judge people based on skin color.” And children as old as six years old will refuse to accept the possibility of a black Santa—but will eventually concede that “black Santa could fill in for White Santa if he was hurt.” White people: Why are your widdle babies so racist?

a)  My kid isn’t racist: We watch Sesame Street, and there are some very, very diverse Muppets on that program.

b) SHHHH! Don’t say the R-A-C-E word around Jimmy! Everybody’s equal, Jimmy. I’ll explain that vague sentiment when you’re older.

c)  Mall Santas.

d) As Sady of Tiger Beatdown and Amanda of the Sexist discussed in this week’s edition of Sexist Beatdown: Uhh, maybe Newsweek is kind of exaggerating about the whole racist baby thing, since the real problem appears to be progressive hippie parents scared shitless about even raising the issue of race with their children. Okay, also mall Santas.

AMANDA: hey, racist baby.

SADY: hey there!

AMANDA: are you ready to discuss how modern equality-minded parents have all taken to blaming their latent racism on their impressionable young children?

SADY: ha, yes. the babies, they are all RACISTS! sort of. first of all, i think the very RACIST BABY tagline is kind of hilariously off, in that the actual “children as young as 6 months old discriminate on the basis of skin color” thing is, apparently, literally wrong. what children as young as 6 months old do is look longer at photos of people who are not the same race as their parents, according to the article. but, you know, that is not SENSATIONAL. so let’s just imply with our headline that six-month-old white babies are already full of societally determined anger and hate.

AMANDA: bad but, importantly, it is also The Longer Gaze at People Who Are Not the Race of Their Parents That Shall Not Be Named. since the main parenting tactic unearthed in this story is: as long as I never mention race or racism, my child will come out unracist. to the point that some ostensibly nonracist parents DROPPED OUT OF THE STUDY when they found out they would be forced to discuss race with their children. “not under my roof.”

SADY: yeah, exactly. and the result, apparently, IS that the four and five-year-olds end up with pretty fucked-up ideas about race..

AMANDA: and also, hilariously, report that they think their parents are racists, too

Moonbat Monday: Radio Days- FM…No Logic At All September 7, 2009

Cat moonbats

Within the dense liberal moonbat crowd, from the  radio waves, arises the smell of donkey feces and oft repeated talking points labeling any and every one against any and everything that is liberal or about President Obama as “crazy Republicans”.

Backed up against the corner of a tissue thin wall, stands the spineless moonbats of the radio and internet waves. All liberal arguments for bringing back the Fairness Doctrine should  squashed once they listen to the demagogues of so called “Progressive Radio” .

Take this clip from Ring of Fire Radio for example. “Progressive”  Mike Papantonio of Air America’s Ring of Fire talks about advertisers shunning Glenn Beck and Fox News with  Dani McClain, who serves on the executive board at the political outreach group Color of Change.

Note how the liberals are now saying that the conservatives are “race baiting”. Are you kidding me?  What was “The Cambridge Police Department Acted Stupidly”? Or “Grandmother is a typical white woman” ?

Listen to Mike Papantonio in part two of this interview where he belittles and marginalizes the Tea Party Express participation of African American conservative entertainer Lloyd Marcus…Calling him a black guy at these rallies surrounded by Republican kooks.

Moonbat burning flag

This is what happens when an African American leaves the pen of jackasses, the liberals and progressives paint us as wimps who are powerless and controlled by the Republicans. You may recall the Saturday Night Live skit which portrayed GOP chairman Michael Steele as a remote controlled robot. This is an interesting use of reverse psychology considering that the African Americans farming on liberal camp are really the ones who are castrated and rendered impotent by the social programs and obvious exploitation of the Democratic Party.

Thanks to a tip from my conservative blogger friend  Avid Editor, I learned that even I, Afrocity was mentioned on the NO AGENDA radio show with John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry. What did I do to deserve such an honor?

If you listen to the broadcast (#127) from September 3, 2009 the gentlemen mention my blog around 17 minutes into the show and again at 56 or 57 minutes. They can’t remember the name of my blog until the staff brings it to their attention, then they say it is Afrocity. Obviously can not tell that I am a woman and not a man as they refer to me as black, but “He”.

Of course content written here at ALS was misquoted and taken out of context as most of these shows customarily do. The spin was that Afrocity is like a crazed right winger full of negativity for Barack Obama and my blog images are disgusting.

Fran and I on a walk 2

Francois and I on an evening walk. We are girls.........notice her pink collar...

What irked me the most was that they assumed I was a Republican because Hillary Clinton lost the primary race to Barack Obama. It has been well documented in this blog and my video, Afrocity’s reasons for becoming a Republican. Not once did I ever say I switched parties because Hillary Clinton was not the DNC 2008 presidential nominee.

Yes I voted for Hillary in 2008, but I have also said that when John McCain was announced as the GOP nominee, I had to ask myself what would I do if a situation in which both were running against each other in the general election. I liked both candidates.

In addition, I did not vote in 2004 because even then, BEFORE OBAMA, I was reconsidering my loyalty to the Democrats.  Bash me as a crazy Republican all you want, that is your right but get your facts and my gender straight.

On that note I want to wish everyone a happy Labor Day…Be safe and for my friends in radio land here is a picture of Francois and I walking yesterday. Fran and I are both of the female persuasion by the way.

Moonbat Monday: “Wee-Weed” and Other Great Speeches of Our Time August 24, 2009

DNC Brain“There’s something about August going into September — (hee ha ha lol) — where everybody in Washington gets all wee-weed up.

-President Barack Obama, August 20, 2009

Can moonbats (family liberalis) develop the dreaded donkey hoof in mouth disease?You betcha.

Have you ever been to a library and thumbed through a copy of The Public Papers of the Presidents?  Most libraries own a complete set.

The Public Papers of the Presidents series is published by the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) and is the official publication of United States Presidents’ public writings, addresses, and remarks. The series has been in existence since the Hoover administration.

Most presidents such as Dwight Eisenhower have eight volumes , while others like John F. Kennedy have only three due to his untimely demise.  Usually there is a volume for each year of a president’s term. The longer the presidency, the more volumes he and hopefully someday she will have.

The exterior of each volume is cloth bound and rather stately. The name of each president is printed in gold leaf.

Ronald Reagan having a good solid eight year presidency 1981-1989 has many volumes which should contain every speech and address he ever made.  The same goes for Richard Milhous Nixon. His resignation speech is contained in the final volume of his published papers:

Published Presidential Papers of Harry S. Truman. 8 volumes.

Published Presidential Papers of Harry S. Truman. 8 volumes.

…I shall leave this office with regret at not completing my term, but with gratitude for the privilege of serving as your President for the past 51/2 years. These years have been a momentous time in the history of our Nation and the world. They have been a time of achievement in which we can all be proud, achievements that represent the shared efforts of the Administration, the Congress, and the people.But the challenges ahead are equally great, and they, too, will require the support and the efforts of the Congress and the people working in cooperation with the new Administration.

We have ended America’s longest war, but in the work of securing a lasting peace in the world, the goals ahead are even more far-reaching and more difficult. We must complete a structure of peace so that it will be said of this generation, our generation of Americans, by the people of all nations, not only that we ended one war but that we prevented future wars…

-President Richard Milhous Nixon ( August 8, 1974)

As an object in itself, each volume tells a story. In the photograph of the Truman papers above, notice how some volumes are larger than others. What does that mean? It is as if each volume is haunted by the events. Was Truman too busy plotting the destruction of Japan to speak that year? Did he have a tonsillectomy? What was going on? Could be nothing at all. Perhaps one during one year a president was a more prolific speaker than others.

Now fast forward to the year 2009 and President Barack H. Obama. I cannot wait to see this particular gem in volume one of his official papers:

“I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry. Number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home. And number three – what I think we know separate and apart from this incident – is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that’s just a fact.”  –President Barack Obama (July 2009)

Scientific Proof That MoonbatsHave Suffered From Foot in Mouth Disease Since Ancient Times

Scientific Proof That Moonbats Have Suffered From Foot in Mouth Disease Since Ancient Times.

Many Obamabots claim to have admired Barack Obama because he was an eloquent speaker. He was consistently praised as  an “articulate and gifted orator”.  His election to POTUS meant that Americans would not be subjected to the embarrassment we suffered as country under the obvious illiteracy of President George W.Bush. Bush II was born in New Haven, Connecticut at Yale University Hospital but make no mistake- he was a Texan through and through. The problem for many liberals was that he sounded like one. Obama being more polished and armed with an arsenal of teleprompters should not have the same problem right? Wrong. The words may uh, uh, uh, sound pretty but whether or not they actually offer Americans the intellectual stimulation they crave is highly debatable.

teleprompterThe White House press secretary is responsible for providing the materials contained in the “public papers” for his administration. For President Obama that would be the blundering Robert Gibbs who in my opinion will without question go down in history as the worse press secretary EVER. I say this not as a Republican but as an American. Why President Obama hired and continues to retain Gibbs in his administration is beyond me. Gibbs makes a mockery out of the office of press secretary. Makes one wonder if Gibbs has something over Obama’s head and that is why he has the job. If the Obama administration’s goal is to make the White House appear glaringly inexperienced but also as transparent as a barrel of crude oil, they have succeeded.

“The thrill is gone for Obama and the media”

By: Chris Stirewalt
August 24, 2009

There’s nothing like a summer vacation to rekindle a romance. So maybe a week on Martha’s Vineyard can bring back some of the magic between the Obama administration and the media.

Before White House press secretary Robert Gibbs left town, he tried to clarify President Barack Obama’s comment that “everybody in Washington gets all wee-weed up.” Gibbs explained to reporters that what the president meant was that they were a bunch of bed wetters who made too much out of the implosion of the White House health care strategy.

Gibbs has grown more sardonic and patronizing as the summer wears on and Obama’s poll numbers wilt.

The press secretary has lectured reporters on the nature of their jobs — apparently to defend the administration against “misinformation” rather than asking impertinent questions like “How will you pay for it?”

When asked recently about the administration’s endless evasions on the public option, Gibbs instead opted to define a monopoly.
“If you had one place to eat lunch before you came to the briefing, do you think it would be cheap?” Gibbs demanded of CNN’s Ed Henry.

Henry should have asked Gibbs to define monopsony: a market in which one buyer is so large that it can control suppliers and ruin competitors. Henry could then explain he’d rather pay too much for the sandwich he wanted than have to eat at a government chow line opened across the street to encourage “competition.”

Gibbs is so crabby because, incredibly, the administration blames the media for the president’s problems.

It tried blaming Republicans, but the GOP is too far out of power. When the leader of the free world is complaining about a posting on the former governor of Alaska’s Facebook page, he’s got problems.

Now listen to Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explanation of what President Obama meant by “wee weed up”

Yes, indeed I cannot wait to include those 4 volumes of the Presidential Papers of Barack H. Obama in my personal library. I will shelve them lovingly next to my moonbat taxonomy resources.

Liberal Moonbats Bite The Hand That Feeds Them August 19, 2009

Whole Foods Devotees Lash Out at CEO

Customers, Angry Over His Health-Care Views, Share Feelings of Betrayal on Web

Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Whole Foods aficionados who assumed the company’s management was as crunchy as the brand are feeling betrayed.

They have stormed Twitter, Facebook and the blogosphere to vent their rage at John Mackey, the chief executive. In an op-ed column in the Wall Street Journal last week, he argued for health-care savings accounts and declared that health care is not an intrinsic right– ideas with a conservative bent, which made Whole Foods’ liberal customer base go ballistic.

They are even talking about a boycott. And who knows? Maybe some will have to rethink shopping at Wal-Mart. Unions once attacked the retailer’s labor and benefits policies, but Wal-Mart has become the nation’s largest purveyor of organic products and recently espoused a position on health-care reform that is widely considered progressive.

What’s wrong with this picture?

“A lot of people have been paying a premium for the Whole Foods brand for years,” said Mark Rosenthal, a playwright living in Massachusetts who founded the Boycott Whole Foods group a few days ago. It has nearly 14,000 members. “A lot of people are sad to look at this corporation and see that it is just like any other, if not worse.”

Whole Foods spokeswoman Libba Letton said that Mackey was expressing personal opinions in the op-ed and that the company has no official position on the issue. Whole Foods has sent letters to customers apologizing for any offense and created a forum on its Web site to discuss the issue.

The angry Whole Foods backlash has also sent a stream of video hatred directed at CEO John Mackey (Warning: you will need a shower and moonbat rabies shot after watching the following footage)

I have a tip...Don't shop there.

I have a tip...Don't shop there. Take the money you would spend there on organic paper products and pay for some poor woman's mammogram.

If they boycott, where will the moonbats shop for edamame and soy based yacht cleaning products? And what do they hope to accomplish? A message that boycotting is a way to hush up anyone such as Mr. Mackey who has an opinion that differs from your own? Perhaps at this moment in history when public dissent of health care reform is framed by liberals around a series of accusations alleging racism, anti-Semitism and any other term that makes one sound like a plain ol’ flea harboring bigot named Bubba, it is inevitable that the rabid  moonbats – would turn on one of their own.  Much slippage in the aisles is going on in the liberal camp, if you get my drift.

Oh BTW and I have used the term Obamacare, so I am officially far, far, far, far to the right.  I was just saying to my possum Wilbur that it sho’ is mighty fine weather we been havin’ up yonder in Chee-caw-go. I think in a short spell, I will take me a walk up to that thare Whole Foods an git me some sasafrass bark and hemp granola.
