Hahahahahaha.

"The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday -- because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.

For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad."


For a bunch of revolutionary Marxists, they certainly are eating remarkably well. And, oddly enough, they seem to have a very circumscribed definition of 'sharing the wealth'.

There are always two sides.

The quality of the food at Occupy Wall Street has been well documented, but meals there will morph on Friday to more simple fare like rice and beans for three days -- not to dissuade undesirable elements from partaking, as the New York Post reported on Thursday, but simply to give the kitchen a chance to get organized, members of the food committee said. "No, no, no, we just need a chance to get organized," said food committee member Megan Hayes, when asked about the Thursday story.

Also, it's not very hard or expensive to eat "well" (ie flavorful and nutritious food), even in bulk.  All you have to do is cook it.  Sadly, most Americans eat like crap and are too stuck in their ways to break out of their own culinary prison.

You assume wrong--it is the NY Post, the official organ of the arch-enemy. BTW, you have a cute quotation in Spanish that adorns your postings. How do you best say it in English? I took a stab at it and it is coming out:

I want my  blood to flow easily,
and always be seen first,
I can not be wrong, comrades,
my love is the Communist Party,
my love is the Communist Party.

Or live in culinary ghettos. Thankfully we have one of the largest inner city farmer's markets.

But some places, it ain't easy to get real food. And cheap calories are often the worst for you in those places.

Most everyone in the US can get close enough if they stick to the outside perimeter of their local supermarkets and avoid the middle.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

The only real food I am aware of that can be consistently obtained, for a reasonable price, in the East Valley (that is, for those outside Arizona, the East Valley of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area) are fresh fruits are vegetables at a particular grocery store/farmer's market-esque thing.  I am completely unaware of any meat or poultry that is reasonably priced and organic in the East Valley.

I get all my news from Pravda.  It is the only reliable source.  Back when the Soviet Union and the US were fighting Martians on Mars none of the other newspapers carried it, because they all sold out and were keeping it a secret.  But not Pravda, the forefront of honest journalism!
