“Let me explain to you how this works: you see, the corporations finance Team America, and then Team America goes out... and the corporations sit there in their... in their corporation buildings, and... and, and see, they’re all corporation-y... and they make money.” — Tim Robbins, or not as the case may be.

I would have like to hear her advise that eager ears to pursue whatever career would enable them to be happy and productive. Yes, we need nurses and teachers ... but it will benefit everyone if those nurses and teachers love their jobs. Who needs a nurse or teacher that is bitter because they didn't pursue their dream of being a corporate attorney?

Take Warren Buffet for example. When he speaks to young men and women in business school, he always advises that you should love what you do ... whether you make thousands or billions. Methinks Michelle Obama could learn a thing or two from Mr. Buffet.

Liberals love to collect taxes, especially to help the underprivileged.

Shouldn't Michelle be telling people to earn more money, so they can pay more taxes, and thus help more underprivileged folks?

Uh, well, Ms. Obama, if nobody goes into "lucrative professions", who is going to pay for all your husband's planned socialism?

Well now,,,that's a really easy question to answer.

If it is left up to Hussein and Obama-Momma,,,,,,

GOVERNMENT JOBS WILL BE THE LUCRATIVE PROFESSION TO GO INTO!!!! (Just look at what they promise public employee unions!!...of course, those DON'T count as 'special interests' to liberals)

Someone should look into how much time spent performing her duties for the Univ of Chicago. Word is “she was never there.” Her position appears to have been grease to the wheel.

Nurses and social workers often work for privately owned facilities like nuring homes, some hospitals. If nobody goes into business management who is going to be able to own and operate these facilities and provide these jobs, hmmmm Michelle?

Socialist idiot.

I know we all carry our own burdens, but I’m sure Michelle doesn’t wash her own dishes, scoop up the dog’s poop in the backyard, iron her husbands shirts, drive her children to school, does her own nails, prepares 3 meals each day for her family, or scrubs her own toilets.

I think its’ great that many people in this country CAN hire people to do these things. But let’s not sit around talking about things we don’t have to personally deal with. Complaining about how much someone spends on riding lessons, piano and dance lessons, is a little bit like complaining that you don’t like the color of your personally chauffered limo. I’m glad she was finally able to pay off her student loans (I’m 43 also, and will be paying them off when I’m 50).

But being a woman who has class, and integrity, and privilege should require that she conducts herself with a little more humility (I would think) and a LOT less “ghetto”.

And I’m sorry — I don’t think a 43 year old woman is old enough to be the 1st Lady. Just MO....

:-)

Exactly. So few Democrats seem to speak Liberalese well enough to understand who they are planning to vote for. Michelle Obama is basically telling them they should be serfs and not aspire to anything better or more challenging careers.

If Liberals would stop telling people they are victims, the ‘helping’ professions would see high unemployment.

“Shouldn’t she be correcting essays or changing bedpans instead?”

Mrs. Hussein is a typical RAT/lib/socialist/commie — “Do as I say, not as I do. Good for me, but not for thee.”

I think if elected, Michelle will be the Marie Antoinette of our times. She has the perfect princeton/harvard superior/eltist attitude. “Let the peasants eat cake” while she and Obama dine on lobster and steak at the palace, er White House.

I didn’t think I’d see the day when a presidential candidate’s wife told voters to NOT go to college, get the best education possible!!! Mrs. O is an IDIOT, and an arrogant one at that. I hope the white lib feminazis go after her on this.

A college education is the one GREAT EQUALIZER in America!! Both my parents grew up desperately poor in rural Arizona, children of menial laborers. Both parents learned the value of a good education and somehow put themselves through college. They have lived comfortable middle class lives for decades. They also set a brilliant example for their children, who also went to college.

Both hubby and I put ourselves through college and graduated without debt. We had to live dirt poor lifestyles while we were in school: no cars, no fancy clothes, rarely eating out, no money for boozing or spring break vacations.

At age 52, hubby and I are closing in on a net worth of $2 million dollars (not including our paid-off house). We did this the hard way: working as corporate cogs (LOL), paying ridiculously high payroll taxes, and living within our means.

What she fails to understand is that much of what is worthwhile (a great education and CHILDREN), that these things require SACRIFICE......or choices.....you can't necessarily have it all.

The CHOICE to go to a very expensive ivy league school requires working, loans, or some sort of benefactor (I suspect she would want the government to be the benefactor).

The CHOICE to have children is the biggest sacrifice of all.....time, money, etc....I suspect that Ms. O also would want the State to take care of this.....THE NATIONAL DANCE LESSONS PROGRAM!

The Democrat party has become the party of reduced personal aspiration. It is not for the individual to determine his path, but a bureaucracy. The person must deny his dreams for the good of the people.

If the Republicans are wise, they will point out that the difference between Senator McCain's captors and an Obama administration is not a matter of kind, but degree.

Become social workers,
just what Obama needs, more social workers handing out our tax dollars to the under achievers. Michelle is priming the engines for her husbands waste of hard earned tax dollars.

Mrs. Obama also bemoaned the amount of money she has to spend — nearly one-third of the median household income in Zanesville — on piano, dance, and other lessons for her two children.

Not to mention what she has to spend on the King Kong Hair Straightener she needs to put forth an image befitting the next possible First Lady.

Is it just me, or does "Vice President for Community Affairs" sound like a shell postion?

I mean, what in the world would one do? Is there a President of community affairs? WTH does he do besides give her raises?

Do they teach this at the community college - or do you have to claw your way to the..the...where the heck would you claw your way to, anyways?

122k w/ a 195K raise after one year, you'd think there'd be an awful lot of qualifiied applicants scratching each other's eyeballs out for that job - I wanna hear from some of the losers - where did they fail? Was it their thesis? Did they not know what a community was? An affair?

ROTFL.....I need to know!
