“The truth is, in order to get things like Universal Health Care and a revamped Education System, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of the pie so that someone else can have more.” – Michelle Obama




I like blueberry pie and apple pie.

I like lemon meringue pie too.

I am more than happy to share my pie with My friends;

people I love and trust, who love and trust me back.


I am more than happy to offer some pie

to the stranger on the street. Hungry

and without a home, a job, or a reasonable life.


It is my pie.

I baked it.

I paid for it with my sweat.

I loved it into existence.

Only I may decide who gets a piece of my pie.

YOU will not steal my pie to stuff your face.

That is all.

The image which for some reason AD has decided to reduce until it becomes unreadable is the receipt from the Waldorf Astoria, where Michelle Obama ordered a $447.39 lunch on October 15, 2008 at 16:04.


On the receipt is shown:


2 Lobster Hors d-oeuvres      $ 50.00

2 Whole steamed lobsters    $100.00

1 Iranian Osetra caviar         $150.00

1 Bollinger Champagne         $ 44.00

20% Service Charge             $ 68.88

8.38% NY tax                     $ 34.59

Total:                                $447.39

Actually that's not outrageous ... For valentines one year I spent nearly that much and didn't get caviar. 3 things to remember... She can afford it... It's NYC... It's the Waldorf Astoria. Unless you've eaten there you wouldn't know. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a certain amount of class be given to the first lady. Democrat or republican.

Just my opinion... Your milage may vary...

so right you are... in point, I too am very happy to give--help where is needed, and I do too. However, if it is mandated of me to give to someone else, who in turn gives it to an institutions to give to another to give to someone in need, I certainly see my means dwindling into pockets and putting little in the hands of those who need it. LET US BE THE MIDDLE MEN!!! Don't we know our communities best? (fuming) --Charlie

This is indeed a well written and enlightening piece. Talk about excessive and highly hypocritical.....hard to swallow! Australian politicians and their spouses are no different!

I'm blown away, Stuart (Australia)

It is a sad statement on today's world, I am going without heart medication and diabetes pills for the next two weeks because my disability pension just doesn't go far enough to cover the $130 deductable I have to pay out of my to be rich doesn't it.

Geez, a bit pricey just for lunch. Could sure fix many a meal for that kind of money, but it is her money so she can order and eat what she wants, just leave my pie alone. I decide who gets a piece, not any government...

Be always safe,

I don't spend that much on food for the whole month. I love lobster, but it's been a long time since I have had any. Shame on her. Liz

Can you believe thos Waldorf Astoria prices? Is that
what the political donations are for? I wouldn't dare
steal your pie, Sara--but if you ever have an extra slice
of pecan pie, I love it...and will be glad to trade you
a bucked of steamed clams. -gene.
