Which Revolution is this?

" wonder what sort of party the new president and his elected and appointed henchmen are planning after he signs this country into financial oblivion this week – to the tune of $787 billion?

The last time he held a White House dinner, the main course featured Wagyu Steak.

I've heard it's good – meat from vegetarian-fed cattle and of course, without antibiotics or hormones, dry aged and well marbled.

No doubt the guests enjoyed the meal – they should have since the meat sells for $150 to $200 a pound.

At that price, it had better be good.

How considerate and democratic of the new president who is overseeing what is playing out to be the worst economic crisis in this country since the Great Depression of the '30s.

It sounds like Marie Antoinette: "Let them eat cake!"

The president and his cohorts feast on the best while thousands of his countrymen lose their homes, their jobs, their savings and their retirement. Those are people who are lucky if they can afford hamburger, hot dogs or cold cuts.

But the president and his people dine in high style."

If Marie Antoinette actually said "Let them eat cake," and it is still being argued by historians whether she did or not, she used the word "brioche," a type of bread. It wasn't actually cake. Just letting you know.
