We ate beans and cornbread when I was being raised. It was part of the process of a ham dinner. The ham was eaten until there was only enough for my father's lunches. The bone was then boiled with navy beans and the huge pot was consumed with green onions for garnish and cornbread. It was, and still is, damned good eating and inexpensive. While it was necessary for my parents to keep within their food budget, it was a fine effort by both and we ate well.
Debbie Wasserman Shultz is worried about her staffers starving. Their $60,000 to $160,000 yearly salaries are not enough. She blames the sequester, which is becoming a source of angry amusement by U.S. citizens who have suffered for a long time due to the piss-poor management by Congress of the economy. It's hard to convince people the government is in need of money when the President, and Biden, piss off millions to travel for no real reason.
I say they get some beans and a crock pot. That way, they can cook dinner while they work and bring leftovers for lunch....like the people that pay their salaries. There is no sympathy and their whining is becoming annoying.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
