Tea Party destroys Michelle Obama’s garden
Daily Caller, by Jim Treacher

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/16/2013 5:36:13 AM

It was bad enough when those teabagging Republican terrorists killed the First Lady’s Twitter account. Now they’ve taken her lovely garden hostage! Reuters: In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes – a favorite of President Barack Obama – have become worm food. It’s another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love… “Due to the shutdown, garden maintenance has been reduced considerably and only being watered as needed,” a White House official confirmed, speaking

Maybe Mrs. Obama should get off her duff and tend the garden herself.

I assume Her Most Angryblackwomanfullness couldn´t be bothered to get her hands dirty unless there was a photo op involved. And how come there aren´t any National Park Sturmtruppen chasing that squirrel away from the Royal tomatoes?

She and her two daughters could have spent the weekend picking the vegetables for a local food bank. Instead she watches the veggies rot. Michelle, how about some "let´s move" on YOUR part?

I actually heard yesterday that the park service people are allowed to water the garden but not pick the crop. Is that insane bureaucracy or what?

I´d heard yaes ago tat the dirt around the WH was toxic anyway. Even if they brought in fresh top soil,I wouldn´t eat the crap anyway.

This garden story is so much BS. The Mooch wouldn´t know what to do with a garden or the vegetables that come from it. Even the SS takes care of the dog (yes, they have two now).

Poster #8 is right, everything is for show and a facade. Trust nothing you see with these fraudulent clowns. It´s Alice´s Wonderland now.

Where is our beloved First Lady? Has the shut down shut her down? Is she getting some "work" done or maybe vacationing (on the taxpayers´ dime) in some exotic location? I haven´t seen any photos of the younglings at a Beyoncé concert lately either. Something is terribly wrong in Obamaland if the Obama females are too busy to harvest the arugula.

The anecdotes about tall, snarled tomato vines does not consider that at this time of the year - beyond the tomato season in that part of the world by about a month - tomato vines are usually kaput.

These too are being deliberately left as a visual to skewer the right.

Two questions:

2. If they are only allowed to water the garden "as needed," how much do they normally water it?

#18 is absolutely right. All northern gardens look like this photo in October...they are a mess waiting for someone to come out and harvest the remainders, pull out all the old dead plants. turn the soil and wait for spring...

The "Michelle´s poor garden" meme is written by fevered brains in the mainstream media who have no idea what gardens are all about.

Send the Foodarama woman out to clean it up. It´s evident she works for an NGO!

Mooch has been neglecting this garden. This has nothing to do with the shutdown.

From a WaPo article on growing tomatoes in DC, where the season is much, much shorter than it is here:

By late summer, tomato plants can look pretty ugly, and by early fall the fruit flavor declines with cooling temperatures. Unless you are into green tomato dishes, I would pull vines by Labor Day and use the beds to sow lettuce, arugula and other fast-growing salad greens for the fall.

One article I read yesterday admitted that the vegetable plants didn’t grow there. They were transplanted, full grown, from nurseries, in anticipation of a photo event.
Like much in this administration, the whole thing is fake.
It would be interesting to know if there are any bees in that beehive that the Rainbird sprinklers spray with water every watering cycle.

In reality Michelle Obama and her girls do not have to do much to ensure that the White House garden is properly tended, that is if they really gave a hoot!

All Michelle Obama would have had to do is put out a call for a few volunteer gardeners from the local area to come and tend the garden. They probably would have got thousands of volunteers who are experienced in gardening, just for the volunteers to have a chance to say in return that they tended the White House garden.

Let HHS nominee Sylvia Burwell

Washington Post, by Marc A. Thiessen    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/14/2014 3:07:20 PM     Post Reply
Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

People who live in some of the remotest areas of the country have electricity for the first time ever. Sixty-three homes in the LeChee community of the Navajo Nation, located just south of Page, Arizona, either have already been or will soon be given electricity as part of an ongoing project to bring power to the area. According to the AP, an estimated 15,000 homes in Navajo Nation don´t have electricity. Some prefer it this way, while others live so far away from power stations or each other that it would be "too expensive" to connect them to the grid. Expensive

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukrainian special forces were deployed Sunday to an eastern city where armed pro-Russia men seized a police headquarters and the Security Service office, the interior minister said. Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page that the "separatists" who seized the buildings in Slovyansk had opened fire on the approaching troops. This claim could not immediately be confirmed. The unrest in Slovyansk and the nearby major industrial city Donetsk were the latest shows of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population and was also the support base for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president ousted in February

Rather than try for style, Crist renders the moment with the racy, staccato gusto that one might expect from a pulpy romance. “We shook hands. The new president leaned forward and gave me a hug.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values.

The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them.
