Perhaps this person is not a supporter of Michelle Obama's nutrition plan.

Again, the picture below comes as no surprise. Obozo's thugs and thuggettes have been attacking fast food workers,tv camera crews and anyone they want to since they elected him in Nov 2008. Some thugs like the black panthers kept voters from voting. These thugs of color have nothing to fear with Obozo and his head Thug, Holder in charge.

Yesterday the report was a cat fight in Denny’s because a gal at one table axed for a gal at the next table to pass syrup for her pancake.

It’s just not safe to be around Obama voters, in private or in public.

“Yep, I smell a girl scout lawsuit, them cookies are addictive the grizzled old hag exclaimed..them damn whiteys want everything for themselves..”

You are probably correct. I’m glad our Grand Daughter isn’t involved with the Brownies/Girl Scouts these days.

She sold so many cookies on the cul de sac, where she lived and where her parents worked and to her grandparents. The scouts wanted prepayment from the buyers due the size of her order, basically a delivery truck just for her orders.

We helped her deliver the cookies one year, loading up wagon after wagon of cookies just for the people living on her cul de sac.

She got into trouble from a couple of upset parents for selling directly to some of kids in her neighborhood. I told one screaming banshee on her block complaining that her kids bought cookies from our grand daughter. If she shared her cookies with her kids, they wouldn’t have to buy their own from the cookie dealer. She didn’t speak to me for months.

Some thugs like the black panthers kept voters from voting. These thugs of color have nothing to fear with Obozo and his head Thug, Holder in charge.

In June 2010, J. Christian Adams, a five-year Department of Justice (DOJ) veteran, resigned to protest the “corrupt nature” of DOJ's dismissal (under Holder) of a case involving two Philadelphia-based members of the New Black Panther Party who had intimidated white voters with racial slurs and threats of violence on Election Day, 2008. In July 2010, Adams gave damning public testimony about how the DOJ believed that “civil rights law should not be enforced in a race-neutral manner, and should never be enforced against blacks or other national minorities.” (That is to say, the Rule of Law only applies to White people.)

In September 2010, Christopher Coates – Voting Section Chief for the DOJ – testified to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and corroboated Adams' assertion that the Department had routinely ignored civil rights cases involving white victims. For more than a year, Holder's DOJ had denied the Commission's requests to hear Coates' testimony and had instructed Coates not to testify. (That is normally called obstruction of justice, but, of course under Holder, only White Republicans can break the law so its OK.) But in September 2010, Coates finally chose to go public with his story and asked for protection under whistleblower laws. more at link

I wonder what a box of Thin Mints or Samoas would be worth in the “Off Season”?

I wonder if I could come up with a business model?

The Alice in Wonderland insanity where minorities can't commit a hate crime is the core of Obozo's AG, the head thug of color, Holder.

“I wonder what a box of Thin Mints or Samoas would be worth in the “Off Season”?

I wonder if I could come up with a business model?”

A couple of decades ago, ‘apparently’ a couple of our younger relatives bought some boxes on their own.

Then months later they took them to high school and sold them for a $/Cookie. They usually sold out in minutes.

I asked one if he ever got caught by those in charge. He laughed that one vice principal caught him. The vp was bribed with an extra cookie if he bought 2.

Of course you find out about these ventures into capitalism decades later.:)

The Cookie Thief - by Valerie Cox

A woman was waiting at an airport one night
With several long hours before her flight
She hunted for a book in the airport shop
Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop
She was engrossed in her book but happened to see
That the man beside her as bold as could be
Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag between
Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene
She munched cookies and watched the clock
As this gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock
She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by
Thinking "If I wasn't so nice I'd blacken his eye"
With each cookie she took he took one too
And when only one was left she wondered what he'd do
With a smile on his face and a nervous laugh
He took the last cookie and broke it in half
He offered her half as he ate the other
She snatched it from him and thought "Oh brother
This guy has some nerve and he's also rude
Why he didn't even show any gratitude"
She had never known when she had been so galled
And sighed with relief when her flight was called
She gathered her belongings and headed for the gate
Refusing to look back at the thieving ingrate
She boarded the plane and sank in her seat
Then sought her book which was almost complete
As she reached in her baggage she gasped with surprise
There was her bag of cookies in front of her eyes
"If mine are here" she moaned with despair
"Then the others were his and he tried to share"
"Too late to apologize she realized with grief"
That she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief

My question is. . .if the victim's husband was right there, why didn't he restrain the woman while his wife called 911? He just kept pulling her off his wife, then letting her loose.

He must have gotten off on seeing the physical assault or something. There's no way my husband would have let that happen.
