No, they're eating cheeseburgers, fries, and ice cream.
Say one thing, do another. The Gospel of Alinsky. They can't help themselves.
Maybe they should start with a ‘Healthy’ Food stamps program. No more fatty food allowed to be bought with food stamps. Only veggies and rice. I wonder how that would go over with the ‘base’.
Why is it that everytime I see a photo of Moochelle she is sucking down an ice cream cone? She needs to butt out of the restaurant scene and for that matter everything else.
I love it when she throws her weight around. Something for the restaurant association/owners/staff to think about when they vote.
I was wondering about Lobster tails.
They sale them for $6.99 per lb in the grocery store.
I don’t know there origin though, doesn’t say like other seafood does.
Cheaper than local crab even.
So I was wondering if the Lobster market (read somewhere it dropped out back east, don’t know if that is true) tanked does the Lobster in resteraunts drop too?
I doubt it, just a thought.
I am sure all the restaurant owners were bowing and
and saying, “Yes, Goddess Obama”.
What makes her an expert on anything, much less owning a restaurant?
Michelle Obama ‘thinks being America’s First Lady is ‘hell’
I doubt if there’s a ton of stockbrokers, salespeople, loan officers, business owners, etc flocking to places that serve Wagyu steaks, lobster and caviar like they were in 2005. So of course prices will come down, unless the Chinese or Indians get a hankerin’ for luxury foods.
You sure that’s not $6.99/lb per lobster or $6.99 per tail?
I thought lobster was considered a high cholesterol food. Wonder if Missy knows this or cares.
I will have to check next time and ask where those tails come from.
We have a rule (living in a fishing community) No farmed fish and no non USA water seafood.
I tried to google the price for Maine and the stupid browser shut down.
There are major parts of the world I don’t trust my fish to come from (hello, China), but I see no reason to avoid herring from off of Europe or certain farming techniques, such as how young oysters are fostered in the Long Island Sound.
I expect you save money buying non-American goods from the free market, and there’s no reason that people who work in other industries shouldn’t, on principle, be able to similarly turn the tables on you. Protectionism for me, but not for thee doesn’t seem particularly principled to me.
All that said, localism for food, where possible, does make a lot of sense.
I suspect the White House demand for such luxury foods is up significantly—but maybe not enough to affect overall market prices.
Anybody with that big a rear end has no business telling anyone what to eat.
I never considered oysters as farmed but now that you mention it they are.
At least here they are.
With such a tasty result, strong prices, and so little apparent impact on the environment, I’m surprised there’s not more oyster farming than there is.
