BREAKING!!! CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER GROCERY SHOPPING WITH MINIMUM WAGE McDONALD'S WORKER!!!



This one is working its way though social media and I see a camera there BUT I haven't noticed the mainstream report.

Here's the money quote from some of the KC Occupy peeps:

"This morning, Kansas City Congressman Emanuel Cleaver went grocery shopping on the minimum wage a with McDonalds worker, Allison. Grocery shopping for a family of four is difficult on $8 per hour. Rep. Cleaver found this out first hand this morning.

"She deserves, like many more, the applause of the nation," Rep. Cleaver said. "We're talking about an honor student taking care of her two girls and working full-time. This is the real American story.""

It's a nice gesture amid The Great Recession and not a lot of talk about jobs during the GOP convention.

"Honor student" who obviously made some wrong decisions by getting knocked up not once but twice instead of going to school and improving her education and now the Congressman asks us to pay more for her choices in life.

Can an economy that has become dependent on lies, misrepresentation, "fudging" of numbers, fraud, embezzlement and a multitude of skimming and scamming operations escape the moral and financial black hole it has created? The self-evident answer is "no."

WTF does that have anything to do with minimum wage and the small business owners who play by the rules?

Anonymous said...

A family of four? Or is it three?

An Honor student working at McD's? So she was a KCMO Honor student?
Damn the recession is tough!

Oh isn't that sweet. Maybe cleaver could hire her to run his car wash so we don't have to pay for that as well. Look at all the jobs and business you have created, cleaver. Oh yes, 18th and vine and prospect are booming. I'll bet KCK wishes they had your foresight and business sense.

And we wonder why they are not accredited. This explains it all.

Cleaver is nothing but a media whore and he always has been. He'd go shopping with Charles Manson if he thought somebody'd vote for him..

It seems that we are reaching a point in the history of this great nation where the thought of extending a hand to those less fortunate is no longer representative of what we all think is the right thing to do.

We now seem to be living at a time when the ship would seems full of rats, who wouldn't blink twice before throwing overboard anyone in order to save for themselves the measly crumbs of our once thriving society.

Less Fortunate? Two Kids is a choice she made. Don't do that if you only make minimum wage. It's really pretty easy.

Anonymous said...

Wait what? Rats? No it's basic economics which an honor student should understand. I don't have enough money to feed myself. Huh, I guess I'll go out and reproduce 2X that should help. Oh, no now I can't feed myself and two kids, please help. Ok I'll help, stopping fucking and having kids. They cost money which you don't have. Concentrate on feeding yourself so I don't have to feed you and your illegitimate brood. Thank you and good day.

Cleaver's endless and empty PR stunts and his even more endless and emptier track record as a Congressman prove the old adage that once you can fake sincerity, you've got it won.
Decades of feeding from the trough and promising he'll help others do the same.
Drive around east of Troost and see all the success.
Then keep trying the same thing with a couople new faces, but the same old game.

Are you imposing a limit on how many children people should have!!! Wow! Real classy guys these conservatives. Kinda reminds me of oppressing tyrants from years past!

Anonymous said...

These are also the same guys who would go out and try to bed as many women as possible. Real class acts!

Maybe more food stamps would be available if Cleaver would pay the taxes he votes for.

Anonymous said...

You can have as many children as you want, dumbass. The catch is YOU must pay to raise them. I do not want to pay for or raise your children.

Anonymous said...

@ 2:56 Are you fucking stupid? No one is trying to pose a limit on how many kids one can have. Have 30 for all anyone cares, but don't expect the world to feel sorry for you, and support your little bastards if you are only making minimum wage and too fucking stupid to keep your legs closed. At the very least, use some common sense. Condoms are much cheaper than children.

Anonymous said...

@ 3:07 have you ever stop to smell the sulfur on what you say or for that matter think... Hope your children don't hear your ignorance and prejudice... And I would bet a saw-buck that you would consider yourself a good christian... ha, ha, ha!

maybe sandra fluke should have paid for her birth control...

Attention 3:10, 3:07 is saying what a lot of people think, he just isn't as polite. It is not about the haves and have nots, it is just that many people have drawn a line in the sand regarding what our tax dollars go towards. I am happy to teach my children about personal responsibility and the consequences of poor decisions.

Anonymous said...

I would never tell anyone how many kids to have as long as they don't ask me to pay for them.

But she will pay no income tax and get a refund of over $7,000 on her federal tax return so yes those of us who pay tax are paying for her kids.

Anonymous said...

@ 3:21 Thank you! (see? I can be polite.) Normally I am polite, but people who are too stupid to make good decisions and then want the rest of us to pick up their slack piss me off! I have 2 kids, but waited until I could afford to support them....until then I was smart enough to understand how condoms work. Yes, 3:10, I do consider myself a Christian, but only because I believe in Christ....never claimed to be a good one though. Now, shut the fuck up, crawl back into your refrigerator box and go to sleep.... unless you have some more food stamp money to spend.

I am largely a left-winger liberal who believes that a bullet to the head would be too good for most greed ridden right-wingers. But it is people like the gal in the story, 2:56 and 3:10 who make life hard on the rest of us, and give the right wing dicks more ammunition.

Byron said...

All of our representatives should be required to experience life in the real world of the working poor before they make their pompous pronouncements on high. Cleaver is educating himself. Good. He is demonstrating compassion. Good.

Poor people did not cause the deficit or wreck the economy. Stop with the class warfare - the rich riling the middle class to hate the poor.

Ryan claims to be a deficit hawk, yet he voted for both unfunded wars, the Bush tax cuts & TARP. This is what caused the deficit, not the so-called entitlements. He's not a deficit hawk just a class warrior.

Maybe, this young woman made some bad choices, but you can't punish her without punishing her children & that is unconscionable. They are innocents.

Anonymous said...

Byron, thank you for providing facts to this argument. Class warfare is what conservatives don't realize is what they are being put up to by their greed-driven overlords.

The case is that most social conservatives are steered by their fears and not by their hearts.

Anonymous said...

@3:30 PM - really! Nice way to end your last post. I guess you prove my point that most conservatives do not have a heart but yet claim to be god-fearing people.

@ 4:14..... YES REALLY! Now, go back and read the post at 3:44, that was me as well.
Dammit people quit giving the fucking right-wingers more reason to be the way they are.

@4:27 - Your quote - "Now, shut the fuck up, crawl back into your refrigerator box and go to sleep.... unless you have some more food stamp money to spend." is this your way of making your case... Great intellect!

Anonymous said...

@ 4:38 THANKS! But it's not called intellect....the word you were looking for is "intuition". If you are talking intelligence though, I never claimed to be smart, just smarter than you.

Anonymous said...

So here's an update on your "intuition" @4:43 it is incorrect. Your intuition is the problem that has led you to be a foul-mouth, articulate moron. Good luck with the rest of your life and not going on rants and tirades based on your intuition which I can attest is way off the mark. Good luck!

She'd be a good catch. At least she knows how to make a samich. "Now go make me a samich"

@ 4:48 You are 100% correct, I am indeed an articulate moron. However, still smarter than you. So if I am a moron, what does that make you?

DAMN! Busted, I am actually only 9, so I will take it that I am a year ahead in smarts.
How does it feel to be outsmarted by a 9 year old 5:57?

This is the real American story... Getting knocked up TWICE, when yu can't afford to take care of one kid.

Anonymous said...

2:56: Maybe we should impose a limit on how many children people can have--especially if you're a global warming gullible.

At the very least people should not have more children than they can support. People who dump their children on society are like those who dump their half-eaten fast-food meals on the streets thinking the world is their maid service.

3:07 is irrefutably correct. Condoms are much cheaper than children.

Cleaver is hardly educating himself. He's been in elected office forever; shouldn't he already know about his constituents?

Cleaver cares about two things... Power and OPM (Other People's Money). He has no problem spending my tax dollars and your tax dollars to support his pet causes, but god forbid he should pay his property taxes or business loan payments. Cleaver is a low-class crook who represents people who are apparently stupid enough to vote for him repeatedly.

@ 7:07 Our kind? she probably got raped and knocked up by your kind. Some crotch at his knees, gang banger wannabe who's mamma drives him around in a low-riding $600 Buick with $2000 wheels and a $4000 stereo that was all paid for with welfare dollars (the ones she didn't lose at the boat).
What are you doing on the computer anyway?.... shouldn't you be out in the middle of the street with a rock in your hand waiting for the next car with $10 to come by?

Tony you have some serious racist fucks on here, sometimes I think the comments should be moderated. Poor people did not cause the problems we are dealing with now, rich white folks did, think Wall Street. Now you want to give rich white folks a tax break, while taking money from the poor. Fucking Christian attitude my ass, greedy ass bitches.

lame conservatives said...

YOu're calling a working mother a whore?

Please go fuck yourselves.

I feel better about voting for Cleaver already.

Anonymous said...

Actually this article is about taking money from others and giving it to the poor. I don't recall any programs where money is taken from the poor, instead we have turned into a country of free handouts. Don't feel like working, stay home we'll pay you. Then we wonder why we are heading towards economic collapse. Self responsibility would go a long way in rebuilding this country.

Food stamps, free/reduced price school lunches and breakfasts, rent assistance, free cell phones, free school backpacks, free clothing.

And still some people have nothing.

If they could just get Google Fiber, maybe they could amount to something!

Kansas City and Cleaver are NOT about "hope and change". In KC just now, there is NO hope and very little substantive change. Same old niggers, playing the same old game with the same bunch of bleeding hearts who believe we're all equal. Well, it's obviously not true.

Yeh, just keep voting for Cleaver and the Dem's and see how much better your life will be. I certainly know these last four years have been great for me. bawwhaaaa
