Connect the Dots
One of the key points of our NAACP keynote
was Lady M’s reminder that she’s supporting a “Healthy Food Financing Initiative" which costs $400 million a year – and that’s just to attract food retailers to the deserts! They’ll have to come up with the start up funds on their own. The $400 million, as I understand it, will be split evenly between Jesse Jackson’s Operation Push shakedown arm and independent contractors. JJ’s $200 million will be used to persuade Piggly Wigglys to come back to “urban centers” just because it’s the right thing to do. The other $200 million will be divided up into multiple contracts for peoples of color who have the right political connections. They’ll be using the funds to put together brochures telling the Piggly Wigglys management team why it’s in their best interest to open up a store in (fill in the blank with the urban center of your choice). And of course their will be administrative costs, plus shipping and handling. But we figure the whole initiative will create or save about 1500 jobs, so this one’s a twofer. -- Michelle Obama's Mirror's Blog: Lady M Wanders the Food Desert

My Dad used to say, "Follow the money":
Michelle used to sit on one of the Boards that was involved in food production and/or distribution. Does no one wonder whether the O's will make $$ off this particular "Health Incentive" that-is-so-good-for-us?
I think these grifters will make money off everythiing they propose/require for the rest of us.
Unhappily, the MSM chooses to never follow the money.
