Leslie's Omnibus


While I find it amusing that the protest mob in New York is eating better than I am most of the time...
Hundreds of grimy protesters laying siege to Wall Street and stuffed into the now-smelly Zuccotti Park dine each night on gourmet meals prepared by a former hotel chef using only the finest organic ingredients.
...I can't find fault, because the food and the prep space is all donated.
Most of the produce, grass-fed meat and organic chicken is donated from small organic farms upstate, including Northland Sheep Dairy, West Haven Farm and Wide Awake Bakery in Ithaca, and several farms in Connecticut and Vermont.
As long as it's not on my nickel, why shouldn't they eat well?

In more Occupy Wall Street news, the protesters aren't much liking the whole involuntary redistribution of wealth concept when it's their stuff that's being seized:
Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops -- and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.

“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen -- that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”

Note that not one of these people sees the irony.

and now, they won't share their food with the homeless and the criminal element...gee. They think it's okay for them to eat donated food, but not to share it?

Just a side note- but if the food they are eating is being donated to them, doesn't it stand to reason that there is now less food donated to the food pantry's and kitchens?
You know, those people who REALLY need it.
