The owner of the upscale Swiss boutique where Oprah Winfrey claimed she was barred from buying a $38,000 by a ‘racist’ sales assistant today demanded to speak to the star she branded ´over-sensitive´ and insisted her employee did ‘everything right’. The rather fearsome-looking Trudi Goetz said she wanted to speak with the talk show billionairess ‘as soon as possible’ and also revealed her petrified member of staff will not be sacked or punished. She said: ‘I don´t know why she talked of racism. I am sorry, but perhaps she is being a little over-sensitive here. Maybe she was somewhat

The more Oprah defends herself, the worse she appears.

Wow, if I had the money, I´d buy that bag from this brave soul. Don´t you know who Okra is, Trudi? LOL. If only American shop owners would stand up to racist extortion.

Fat chance! Frau Goetz and her employee were played by queen Oprah who needed a racial incident to help promote an upcoming movie.

If she comes back for the bag, double the price.

Doing this as a favor to Tina Turner probably. Tina shops a lot at Trudi´s stores. In fact, Trudi was invited to Tina´s wedding celebration. Why didn´t Oprah mention what happened to Tina and then sort it out then directly with Trudi? I am sure Oprah just didn´t waddle her way into the most fashionable street in Zurich without getting a hint from Tina to "Go see Trois Pommes and the Tom Ford boutiques -- you´ll love them!"

Opra doesn´t have any heritage to be proud of, just like oBama she was a rejected child.

I heard this lady on Beck´s radio show this morning.

She said her employee... is an Italian who does not speak English very well.

Shame on Oprah. Busted race baitere.

So...Oprah wants to say America is racist...and points to an Italian in a rich people´s store in Switzerland.

Perfect sense to me.

This affair has the ´Big O´ looking petty and dishonest. Bet she wishes she never popped off with that lie about the handbag. She simply took a harmless incident and embellished it to make it look like racism and promote her movie. She may have a billion dollars but she is just a low-class jerk in my eyes.

Sort of like Hillary and her ´sniper fire´ lie. They just thought they wouldn´t be called on it.

Well, Ms. Oprah has found her Tar Baby and no matter what Ms. Oprah does she just cain´t get shut of that Tar Baby. Ms. Trudi has showed us all what Oprah really is and it´s not very nice nor is it pretty.

I am so happy someone called her on her race-baiting publicity stunt. Good for you, Trudi. If I had money, I would call and buy one of your purses for standing up to the Black Bully!

"I hope the business will not suffer as a result of this. I hope I can speak with Oprah to resolve the situation personally, as quickly as possible.’

*chuckle* Ms. Goetz didn´t come to selling handbags at 35,000 francs (not dollars, and sounding almost like a bargain after all the hub-bub!), and being invited to weddings of the mega-rich and famous by being a dummy or a shrinking violet. She is apparently a smart cookie, who can read the "news" stories as easily as any of us, and is taking full advantage of free favorable advertisement.

Oprah´s "black card" (in more ways than one) backfired on her and made her look snooty, petty and vengeful. Ms. Goetz is getting her goat - big time.

Now comes another version of Okra´s story:

She said: ´I´m in a store and the person doesn´t obviously know that I carry the black card and so they make an assessment based upon the way I look and who I am,´ said Winfrey, who earned $77 million in the year ending in June, according to Forbes magazine.

I thought the black card was a euphemism for the race card, but I do believe Madam Queen was referring to the VISA black card, which is apparently a big $$$$$$ deal. No idea where she was carrying it as, in yet another version of her story (and though a previous version said she was in full Oprah gear except for her eyelashes), she said she had no handbag.

Oprah the Tiresome.

BTW, one of the black race hustlers on Fox remarked this morning (after an Oprah clip) that Oprah´s "Swiss" accent was very good. They ARE dumb. In a country where there are three primary languages plus a gazillion dialects, what the heck is a Swiss accent? I am half Swiss (Bernese Oberland - Gstaad and Adelboden) and the only accent you´d hear there is sort of German.

You can take ´em out of the ghetto but you can´t take the ghetto out of them. No matter how much money, how much celebrity, they are still the descendants of slaves and have mentally never left the plantation. Scab-pickers.

George W Bush exhibits his

For a president long criticised for seeing things only in black and white, the exhibition of George W Bush´s art at his presidential library in Dallas comes as something of a revelation. Delicate brushwork has replaced his famed swagger. He presents himself as a wholly different kind of Texas oilman. With each new brushstroke he seems also to be softening his public image. [Snip] His vantage point, of course, is unique: the cockpit of the presidency--or, at least, his recollection of those tumultuous White House years. So there is more to them than canvas, paints and brushes. Another key ingredient

Unhealthy modern lifestyles aren’t the only cause of heart disease, say scientists, who have found clogged arteries in Egyptian mummies. [Snip] Earlier studies had revealed fatty arteries in a large number of Egyptian mummies but critics had dismissed the find as related to their luxurious, fatty diets. ‘Atherosclerosis is supposed to be a disease of modern civilisation,’ Dr Adel Allam, a nuclear cardiologist at Cairo’s Al Azhar University told Alan Mozes of Health Day. ‘It´s supposed to be explained by the fact that we´re eating all the wrong foods, not exercising enough, becoming obese and having diabetes.

The US Treasury has granted plane manufacturer Boeing a licence to export certain spare commercial parts to Iran, a company spokesman says. Boeing has had no public dealings with Tehran since 1979. In a statement, the US company said the licence had been granted for the safety of flight. The step is being seen as part of a temporary agreement to ease sanctions on Tehran that US Secretary of State John Kerry reached with Iran last year. Under the deal brokered in November, Iran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities for six months in exchange for sanctions relief from nations including Britain, China and

An angry crowd attacked an Ebola treatment centre in Guinea on Friday, accusing its staff of bringing the deadly disease to the town, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said, as Mali identified its first suspected cases. More than 90 people have already died in Guinea and Liberia in what the medical charity has warned could turn into an unprecedented epidemic in an impoverished region with poor health services. The outbreak in Guinea is the first time the disease, epidemics of which occur regularly in Central Africa, has appeared in the country. Infected patients initially went undiagnosed for several weeks before tests confirmed Ebola.

At a time of national wage stagnation and economic uncertainty outside the beltway, a Virginia Democratic congressman wants a raise – arguing that a $174,000 salary isn´t enough for a federal legislator to live comfortably in or around Washington, D.C. ´I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,´ Moran told Roll Call. ´I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.´ Congress´ approval rating among voters typically hovers under 20 per cent.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million.
