Marion Barry: Batting 1,000

As per usual, Marion Barry is on the wrong side of the issue…why?  Because he always is.  I learned as a DC voter YEARS ago…before I was even old enough to vote, that if he supported something, I should investigated it heavily and, more likely than not, vote the other way.  Guess what?  It works!  Pretty much ever issue he’s supported has been bad for the city.  And NOW he’s against same sex marriage in DC.  Why, do you ask?  Well OBVIOUSLY it’s because he’s such a MORAL politician.  Unless you were living under a rock for the entire of the 80’s and 90’s and even recently, you KNOW that he’s just about as far from a “MORAL” politician as you can get.  Not only did he smoke crack with a self-professed ‘crack whore’, but he accepted bribes, gave government contracts to family members, and ran the city into the ground.  Also, when did he dodge bullets during the civil rights movement?  He stood next to MLK a million years ago and that’s supposed to make the community he’s being been treating like shit forgive him for everything he’s done?  I think he’s ‘misremembering’ the bullets…those fly around the city he was mayor of ALL THE TIME.  So perhaps he was remembering DC…sans gay marriage…but full of drug wars and quickly climbing to the top of the murder rate.  Or maybe he was remembering getting robbed at gunpoint in June 2006.  Fortunately, his credit cards were all maxed out so they didn’t get very far on them-oh-that’s right!  He’s ALSO one of the millions of MORAL Americans who borrowed way more than they could ever pay back.  Also, how many times has he been married?  FOUR.  FOUR TIMES.  HOW can SOMEONE WHO’S BEEN MARRIED FOUR TIMES EVEN OPEN THEIR MOUTH TO TALK ABOUT THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE???

Jacques Torres is going to start serving ice cream!  Out of their Dumbo store front and two ice cream trucks-one on the Upper West Side and another in the West Village.  Jacques is a master when it comes to all things sweet and delicious.  I am half tempted to name a child after him…maybe all of them…like George Forman’s kids…Jacques , Jacques 2, Prince Jacques…Also Prince Jacques.  I’m working on it.

Worst employer of the year?

And I thought my last job was bad…Cityfile has opened a file on the billionaire Peltz family and the wicked ways they treat their staff.  They are being sued by a former chauffeur for violating employment laws and a class action suit by former staff members has been filed for past abuses and mistreatment.  The turn over at their Bedford compound is apparently incredible.  While Nelson Peltz is busy working surrounded by bodyguards, his wife and their house manager rule the roost.  They have cameras all over the place and refused to let staff eat or save any food that’s destined for the garbage.  This makes them worse than Whole Foods who recently fired an employee for eating a sandwich that was being disposed of…at least Whole Foods has a defense-even if it is super weak.  One of their staff members was reprimanded for toasting and eating a bagel that was going to be thrown away.  So not only are they awful to their staff but they are also insanely wasteful for no apparent reason.  The family butler was dismissed on Easter Sunday after Mrs. Peltz detected a less than chipper attitude after the butler had cleaned a toilet seat for the fourth time “for luck” per her instructions.  And, as per usual, the real villainess of the story is their daughter, little miss sunshine sparklepants who has had countless nannies and maids fired.  She wants to be an actress.  I have a thought-how ’bout you ACT like an adult and stop shitting all over everyone?  Looks like when Claudia Peltz isn’t busy shitting all over the staff, she’s also falling through her ass as a parent.  So the good news is, the Peltz family is ALWAYS hiring…the bad news is they are also ALWAYS firing…and now getting sued!
