Let them eat chili dogs!

Paris luxury-home prices rose the most in the world in the 12 months through March as buyers from emerging markets competed for a limited number of properties, Knight Frank LLP said.
When his wife unveiled the USDA's new nutritional plate yesterday, there definitely wasn't a space for chili dogs. But that didn't stop Barack Obama wolfing down two in Toledo today - with fries and an extra bowl of chili on the side. The president happily munched on the unhealthy meal before he visited the city's Chrysler factory, and even teased one of his hosts for ordering ketchup, a faux-pas in his home town of Chicago.

This just goes to demonstrate, once again, Obama's proclivity for giving the oligarchy the action, and us the empty symbolism. Note that he was lunching with Kaptur. Care to guess what he said to her? Try "kill Glass-Steagall or else."
