Hi-Ho, The Derry-O
When Michelle Obama didn't have any certified organic Tuscan kale on Thursday afternoon...
"The Secret Service and the D.C. police brought in three dozen vehicles and shut down H Street, Vermont Avenue, two lanes of I Street and an entrance to the McPherson Square Metro station. They swept the area, in front of the Department of Veterans Affairs, with bomb-sniffing dogs and installed magnetometers in the middle of the street, put up barricades to keep pedestrians out, and took positions with binoculars atop trucks. Though the produce stand was only a block or so from the White House, the first lady hopped into her armored limousine and pulled into the market amid the wail of sirens."
Meanwhile the rest of America tightens their belts and pulls in the purse strings because BO's policies are wrecking our economy.
A diminishing tide lowers all boats except for those of the elites. They'll still get their certified organic Tuscan kale and Kobe beef. Why? Because they can.
