There are a million hippie vegan free-range chicken restaurants here, this one is geared towards political activism if you click on the press events etc.

About Busboys and Poets Busboys and Poets is a community gathering place. First established in 2005, Busboys and Poets was created by owner Anas "Andy" Shallal, an Iraqi-American artist, activist and restaurateur. After opening the flagship location at 14th and V Streets, NW (Washington, DC), the neighboring residents and the progressive community embraced Busboys, especially activists opposed to the Iraq War. Busboys and Poets is now located in four distinctive neighborhoods in the Washington Metropolitan area and is a community resource for artists, activists, writers, thinkers and dreamers.

so the fact that it is owned by Teaching for Change, which is a left wing social justice and civil rights push doesn’t make a difference to you?

Where students eat on a field trip isn’t worth getting that excited about, to me.

I thought the owner was Anas “Andy” Shallal, an Iraqi-American.

Cicatrix

Scars? Yep, I think I see the co-nnection here. One of the hired hands said he visited a woman (across the state line of course seeing there’s nothing like that around here) did sicko tricks. I thought he meant a magician show, me being 13 at the time, later I found out this hired hand got some cicatrix from daddy’s boot.

I could see a hippie-themed sports bar with lots of buxom young lasses in tie-dyed halter tops and 60s paraphernalia on the walls. There’s a million dollar idea.

Identify the target, isolate it, mock it, market it.

maybe it’s being in the public schools that has inured you to this kind of thing? we are very attuned to leftwing bias and we point it out wherever we see it, be it where a field trip lunch is held or book choices for lit class—this teacher required Nickel and Dimed for summer reading the year before last which is RIDICULOUSLY left wing, contains the F word and passages which mock Christians. Are you familiar with the premise of the book? leftwing college professor leaves her job to go and take minimum wage jobs in various parts of the country to see if she can make it. Bottom line, anyone POOR was noble, anyone with $ was a souless monster. one of the positions she took was with Merry Maids, cleaning houses. During the class discussion, xsjunior’s leftwing teacher was taken aback to discover that everyone in the class HAD A CLEANING LADY cleaning their house, and kids were recounting all the nice stuff that their families did for the cleaning ladies! LOL! what a dimwit. She teaches at a school that costs an arm and a leg and she’s amazed that the students have cleaning ladies. part of my problem with this field trip eatery is knowing full well the idealogy of the teacher who chose it.

I don’t think it has anything to do with public schools. You’re just in a much more liberal area. Which is why I’d take lunch with a grain of salt, so to speak.

My daughter’s gone to the zoo and the science center. Of course, she’s in grade school, but I wouldn’t expect there to be a “literary field trip” at any time in her schooling here.

Next week I’m chaperoning any overnight field trip at an “environmental camp,” but I expect it to be about nature and conservancy, not about polar bears and melting ice caps.

And I hope xsjr told the teacher that minimum wage jobs are for the young and inexperienced, not for grown adults with any modicum of talent.

Home and waiting for the AC guy to come and do service so it is ready when hot weather comes-AC is one of those things I know nothing about beyond how to change a filter...

The cicatrix that Clinton left
Has been scratched by his friends-
The ones that Obama resurrected
And who don’t care how it ends

The more money Holder can grab
In his job despite the scandal
The more he has in legal fees
When it gets too hot to handle

And Axelrod just keeps prattling
The same old tired party line fears-
Come November he’ll be be put back
In his box for at least four years

I had to put the A/C unit in the bedroom window last week, which is again about 2-3 weeks ahead of normal.

It hasn’t really been hot enough for me to turn on A/C, but on Saturday, the combination of heat and humidity was enough that I was tempted-but I hadn’t had the condensation lines cleaned out yet this year, so I left it off.

It rained and a cool front came in on Monday night, and it is still here- now it is only in the mid-70s during the day and 50’s at night-too cool for A/C. So I’m taking this respite to get it serviced.

They are covering the Reagan era in her history class right now and she has her hands full setting them straight on that. They had a chemistry field trip last week to some military installation in MD last friday, can’t recall exactly what the place was. And the week before they went down to Richmond, to the state capitol to participate in a mock legislative session, and also hit up the Edgar Allen Poe museum, they went on to Charlottesville, toured UVA, spent the night and then went to Monticello the next day. This weekend is prom. She has a date, she’s not enthused about him, but she’s going.

Task your daughter with finding leftie influence while she is there and report back to you. That should keep her eyes open. I can’t seem to see anything on the website but the appetizers. I would eat there, maybe not a second time.

I stand corrected - they are "retail partners" with Teaching for Change:

Busboys and Poets is proud to offer our retail partners Teaching for Change, Global Exchange, and Art Under Pressure space at absolutely no cost. Teaching for Change owns and operates the Busboys and Poets bookstore at our 14th & V (DC) location. All proceeds from the sale of books go directly to Teaching for Change, a non-profit whose mission is to nurture and build social justice curriculum in schools—from kindergarten to college.

When I KNOW a business is lefty owned and in your face about it, I don’t go there, ever. I want to know anyone I do business with - if I know they are lefties I can find someone else. My choice.

Holy s***! The dumbass in chief says he “personally” supports same sex marriage? Give him a pair of flip flops and a white house expense statement-what a f***ing stupid thing to do, especially since NC just said “fed hands off”. I’m cranking up AC/DC now, before my head explodes...

Don’t worry, he’ll have more “flexibility” after the election.

I will do whatever I can to see that he has the “flexibility” to live anywhere he wants to after November-other than his present address-I’d like to see him sued to claw back taxcpayer money he’s spent on his campaign-but barring that, perhaps he might like France...

So, any suggestions for hippie themed sports bar names?

I’ve got a name for the girls: The Eves of Destruction.

Yeah, I can’t see the upside for him. He already had the gay vote no matter what. for three years he has slapped them across the face and they have covered for him. He possibly loses some of the moderate vote who are religious and they are already reporting some of the religious latino vote may flee....so who did he gain?

or charge a boatload of tuition. All we had to send for the overnight trip to Richmond/Charlottesville was $50 for group meals. And they stayed at the Cavalier Inn on campus.

Black churches are vehemently against gay marriage, but i guess they will support him no matter what.

I wish I had a link but SNL did a skit about a real forum where blacks were asked what bammy could do to lose their vote. questions like “cheating on michelle” were asked and the answer from some feminist was “that would be their business, not mine”..... of course SNL did it like this: “Who would he cheat with?” interviewer: I don’t know, then named some movie star. The black feminist said, “oh, no that his business”..then another name, hesitation, then same answer. all of the skit was like that and imitated the real forum. Nothing he could do would change their vote.
