Obama Raises $2.4 Million from Wall Street in one evening (Hey occupier morons check out your god)
Firedoglake ^ | 6/24/11 | D Dayen

Posted on 10/10/2011 7:17:32 AM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

Last night Obama headed to the Upper East Side to wine and dine Wall Street.

The DNC fundraiser at tony restaurant Danielcostattendees $35,800 each, and a source told Ben White at Morning Money that the event netted $2.4 million [...]

Marc Lasry was there, as expected. So was Orin Kramer.

According to Dealbook, the menu included:“Maine lobster salad with roasted beets, duos of Black Angus beef, braised short ribs with young spinach, and roasted tenderloin with stuffed potato and hen of the woods.”

The meal was prepared by Daniel Boulud himself.

Nothing but an empty shirt, lacking starch, and a bit shabby at that.

I wonder how many Americans can afford such fare?................

Just an alert, Hussein’s fundraiser was about 2 and a half months ago...looks like he waited until the checks cleared before setting his thugs upon the towns.

They’re protesting the lefts biggest donors in the past.

They protest the man who they voted for and who did the bailouts but will vote for him again.

The UAW was there protesting, protesting what exactly?
It was their company which received our money to let them keep their jobs.

I have a feeling that because wall street is not giving as much money to the left and not hiring while sitting on profits then this demo is an extortion shakedown done by Van Jones etc much like Sharpton and Jackson does when they want money off a company .

"Hen-of-the-Woods" (fungi, Grifola Frondosa) on the Obama fund-raising menu is a tres expensive mushroom fancied by the rich and famous both for its particular taste and its purported health benefits.

It is native to Japan and can be found mostly in the northeastern United States.The mushroom grows in clusters at the bases of trees, mainly oaks. It looks like a ruffled chicken (hence its name) and its camouflage coloring makes it sometimes difficult to hunt and find.

An average "Hen" can weigh three to four pounds, some grow to 100 pounds or more.

The smaller mushrooms are simmered slowly in salted water till tender, then flavored according to ethnic tastes.....or the flights-of-fantasy of an epicurean chef.

They have a deep rich flavor and are chewy.

Bon Apetite!

I keep reading about these DNC fundraisers where the price of admission is $35,800. That seems like an odd number. Is there some significance to that figure?

FAR LEFT Advertises on Craig’s List for Paid Activists to Fight Wall Street

The pro-Obama Working Families Party of New York posted this advertisement on Craig’s list. They are looking for energetic progressives to help them to fight to hold Wall Street accountable. And the pay is $350-$650 a week depending on the responsibility and length of time of staff.

The politicians are getting richer and richer while we the people are getting poorer and poorer.

The libs on Wall Street are protesting the wrong entity. The buck stops with those who make the rules.

If the protesters were truly honest about who's the most corrupt and not just left wing hacks, I'd join them. How do politicians go to Washington as paupers and retire multimillionaires? Someone needs to explain that to me.
No one makes a politician line his/her pockets to get rich. They do that themselves. In return, they choose do favors for those who buy them.
Solyndra is a prime example. If the protesters were honest, they'd see this as the pay off it is - and it was done with their future earnings.

My family certainly can not afford it. It is even getting tough to be able to afford a pound of “cheap” ground beef these days even when it is on sale. When I went shopping earlier this week it was over $3 per pound for the cheapest ground beef they had in the meat department.

Needless to say I bought the fryer chickens on sale as a loss leader for $0.79 per pound instead and will be stretching each chicken into at least three dinners for my family of 5. Roast chicken the first night, some kind of chicken casserole with the leftovers the second night and then using the chicken carcass and every bit of the remaining meat meat I can get off of the bones to make a chicken stew, soup, or chicken pot pie.

We will still all have well balanced meals with plenty of protein because I will also include cheap grains and vegetables and fruit such as brown and wild rice, homemade beans, and lots of lower cost vegetables and fruits to go along with the chicken for our meals. Thankfully, I know how to buy rice and grains and dry beans in bulk, and I can cook them from scratch myself so we can make due with less meat per meal.

Take the chicken carcass and put it in a pressure cooker for about 15 minutes at pressure, then the meat will literally fall off the bones................or, boil for 30 minutes covered. Reserve the liquid for stuffing or giblet gravy................

I already do that and believe me I save every bit of meat that falls off of those bones. I usually use all the cooking liquid as the base for my soups and stews.

I often throw the carcasses in a zip lock bag in my freezer until I have time on the weekend to cook them down and make up my soups, stews, etc. I frequently use my large stock pot and cook down several carcasses at once and make up several pots of different soups, stews and filling for pot pies that I can either serve the family over the weekend or freeze so I can pull them out as needed to use for quick family meals during the week.

Almost every weekend I have my large stock pot in use cooking up soups, stews or large pots of beans so I can have them ready to go for family meals during the week. I also use the cooking liquid for making gravies, cooking rice, stuffing, and just about anything else I cook. I am probably one of the most frugal home cooks you have ever seen. I tend to use up everything possible. I even save the liquid from when I cook up corned beef and cabbage to use for soup stock. It makes really wonderful split pea, lentil or bean soups.

I freeze, preserve, or use up virtually everything before it has a chance to spoil and I have become a master at taking leftovers and turning them into entirely different meals, so no one feels like they are eating leftovers. I also have come up with lots of tricks for streching the amount of meat used in each meal, and even the men who are pretty much straight meat and potatoes people have not had reason to complain.

We are eating more comfort foods like macaroni and cheese and other pasta dishes, casseroles, rice and beans, and hearty soups and stews more often than we did previously, but we still have a roast of some kind about once a week or more and I use all the leftovers for other dishes throughout the week, suplementing with the meals I have premade in my freezer.

We also usually have a sandwich night on Friday’s since everyone seems to be heading in different directions and needs to eat at different times that night, and about once a week we have a breakfast for dinner night, since we have diverse schedules and would otherwise not have the opportunity to all share a breakfast style meal together each week.

I like to take the chicken/turkey carcass, cook it down, take all the meaty pieces and liquid and mix it all into a huge pan of stuffing, preferably homemade cornbread stuffing, with some chopped boiled eggs, liver and gizzards boiled and chopped with diced onion.....with some pan gravy, it makes a great meal all by itself!......

Another variation is to use RICE instead of the stuffing, it’s great, too!............

Both of those sound good to me, but my hubby only eats stuffing at with a Thanksgiving style meal and he doesn’t eat much stuffing even then. We do cook a Thanksgiving style meal once a month from about November through May or June each year depending on the weather and how many turkeys I am able to pick up and throw in the freezer when they are on sale really cheap during the holidays.

I will keep both those in mind as turkeys should be going on sale cheap in about a month, so I will be stocking up on them then once again so we can enjoy our tradition of a monthly Thanksgiving style meal throughout the colder months of the year.

I do use the broth and meat for my rice based casseroles all the time. I like to add lots of vegetables to my casseroles as well as I have learned that even my hubby will eat them when they are in a casserole, but otherwise he will skip the vegetables, even though I stick to the ones he will actually eat. Through the years it has also helped me to get more vegetables into my children as well.

I also have been using the broth and meat from the carcass more recently with bulgar wheat, couscous, and even polenta. I try to introduce the family to something new about once a month or so, so given the economy and our tight grocery budget these days I have been trying out lots of cheap grains and different types of dry beans to help stretch the budget.

Since you have so many good ideas, I hope you will join us on the weekly cooking thread here on FR. A new thread is started every Saturday morning. We have a great time sharing recipes and food related ideas. Here is the link to the thread that was started last Saturday. If you are interested in the thread you can request to be added to the ping list each week by our wonderful hostess.

A good way to get vegetables in your hubby and kids is to put them in meatloaf as a filler........

Brown rice is for smart humans. White rice is slave food. So is white bread...got some homemade whole wheat/rye/caraway bread baking right now. Eating out I’ll eat white rice, you have no choice 95% of the time. But at home it is brown rice and brown bread
