According to the article, researchers set out among various inner cities and poor neighborhoods and found supermarkets in all those areas. Duh.

I’ll bet he also has experienced the thrill of smoking pot and being able to use Muslim afforded monies.

100 years ago, in Pittsburgh and all of your major cities and small towns, there were grocers, produce vendors, meat markets, every few blocks.

Why would anyone think that was a better system, with very limited choices and necessarily higher prices without the economy of scale?

Obama is a real luddite, thinking the people would want to go back to what they have rejected already by their choices.

He’s not *so* bad.

He generously allows me an average of 1 square foot of sofa surface.

Thankfully, I’m puny.

Such a sad LITTLE story, so the nut couldn’t find a fruit and we should care?

“What it’s like to take a subway or a bus just to find a fresh piece of fruit in a grocery store.”

He picked up male hookers at a grocery store?

It takes one to know one. OMG, now we’ve hijacked this serious political thread and turned it into a dog thread.

He also walked 12 miles to school in a foot of snow in his bare feet, and it was uphill both ways.

Just as believable as the bus ride story.

I lived on the South Side of Chicago years ago - no one ever had to take a bus to get a beer there. Liquor stores on every other corner.

Stores stock what sells... if beer sells and plums don't - then beer will be on the shelf and plums won't...

Blacks might not want to face up to their own culture... but the problem isn't that stores choose not to sell fruit. Stores choose to sell what people buy.

Yes, thats basically my approach too! Ridiculing the entire Obama Junta ios the best we can do, too bad that the GOP can’t do the same. Everytime ridicule is done publicly, the Obots ( including the media, Obama campaign and the Secret Service) become a swarming mass of media hornets, with an opposing answer, demands for an apology etc.. We should keep driving them with ridicule until they go over the edge
and get violent.

“Right now, 23.5 million Americans, including 6.5 million kids, live in what we call ‘food deserts,” Mrs. Obama said in a March 10, 2010 speech. “These are areas without a supermarket. And as a result these families wind up buying their groceries at the local gas station or convenience store, places that offer few, if any, healthy options.”...I sort of believe this. I worked Safety/ Security for a chain of food stores YEARS ago. They asked me to weigh the risk factors of opening a store in a city area. I spent an hour in the area, armed, nervous and listed 120 risk factors that could be seen and about 20 others that you just KNEW will happen. I kept our loss rate down around 5% (fairly bad) and estimated that if this new store was built, we’d have an 18% loss rate. In my report I actually recommended “Let them grow their own food or let them eat at restaurants/ fast food joints or the gas station with the armed guards.”

Maybe he had to get a subway or a bus to get a piece of fruit because he didn’t drive a car because he couldn’t get a licence without a birth certificate?

Yes, you may very well be right. I do not think Obama presently has a valid drivers license.

He looked kind of morose sitting on the Rosa Parks bus, thinking no doubt of a fresh over ripe banana or some such, LOL.

The man is undoubtedly the most strident idiot ever to be elected as the chief executive officer of any nation during the modern era.
