Close Them Down!

In these times, when certain sorts are so fixated on removing what they see as racism, it’s time – past time! – to finally close down obviously racist establishments. They’re offensive!

Close Them Down! They’re Cracka Racists!

At the top of that list should be White Castle. Really! C’mon! White Castle. It’s right there in the name. It’s White; that’s racist. It’s a castle; that’s White privilege right there as there’s a long history of Blacks not having castles. And what is the centerpiece of White Castle’s menu? The hamburger – a food named after a German city, highlighting the White European conquest of America. That’s racist! Worse, hamburgers are fast food and Blacks are overrepresented in the fast food industry, meaning the likelihood of Blacks making and serving food to Whites and that’s got to be racist too.

Really! In a time like now when there are concerted efforts to eradicate the Confederate flag, desecrate Confederate graves, and tear down Confederat monuments, how can we let White Castle stay in business?

Simple Diet Choices

Liberals and Progressives within America’s borders love to rant, rail, and rave about “food deserts” and “food insecurity” and at the same time about America’s “obesity epidemic,” which they oddly and counterintuitively claim disproportionately impacts the same demographics who are supposedly suffering under those “food deserts” and “food insecurity.”

In some ways the lament of the Liberals and Progressives makes a certain logical sense. Within their internal logic structure outcomes can never be because of choices. Hence, all diet-related issues and outcome must be due to external, societal oppression and must be rectified by the state.

Look, I like fast food as much as the next person, probably even more than most do, but I make the choice not to try to make it mainstay of my diet. Others, especially those who are supposedly The Poor, should make the same choice. Doing so would improve both their economic and health outcomes, the latter dramatically.

And, while the Left and their minority tenants make a lot of excuses for why simple shopping and cooking is beyond the capacity of the poor, that’s all they are – excuses. Even in New York City it’s not that difficult to eat healthily for minimal expenditures – and I’m not talking about trying to live on a diet of bean, rice, and pasta.

All this takes is the will to make simple diet choices and to learn – there’s an internet! – how to enact them. If that’s actually and truthfully too much for some, then that’s simply evolution speaking.

Never Intended

There will always be issues, often severe ones, when anything is used in a manner that was never intended to be used in.

Fast Food Jobs
Fast Food Was Never Intended To Sustain Someone Indefinitely

Fast food is perfect example and one that is very timely at this moment in history. It was never intended to be mainstay of anyone’s diet and its misuse as such is the reason behind the Liberals’ and Progressives’ complaints about obesity, food deserts, and other such things. Similarly, fast food jobs were never intended to sustain a person economically for any great length of time and their misuse is at the heart of the Liberals’ and Progressives’ assault to increase the minimum wage.

Truly though, the issue of minimum wage and its use and misuse has two disparate vectors, a legitimate issue and an illegitimate construction.

A Legitimate Issue

To be fair, under the influence of Obamanomics the demographics of who’s working in the fast food industry or otherwise earning only minimum has changed greatly since 2008. There are more and more men and women, previously well-employed, now being forced by circumstance to attempt to support themselves and often their families through minimum wage jobs.

An Illegitimate Construction

Irrespective of just who is now working for minimum wage, a huge underlying problem with it now is the Liberals’ and Progressives’ construction that minimum wage should be a wage upon which someone can live well. This in turn reflects their beliefs that the poor are somehow more downtrodden than is rationally acceptable. They truly seem to believe that the poor should have a standard of living that is similar to that which is enjoyed by the more productive and successful.

~*~

Also remember that this misuse, if allowed to continue and expand, will just make things worse. It will both reduce the number of minimum wage jobs available as employers adapt and raise the prices of many basic products and services, thereby destroying the increase in workers’ buying power that increasing the minimum wage is intended to accomplish.

Carl’s Jr.’s Drive-In Heat

The Southwest Patty Melt at Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s is a spicy twist on a classic burger, the new Southwest Patty Melt features a charbroiled beef patty, with sliced jalapeos, grilled onions, pepper-Jack cheese and spicy Santa Fe sauce, all on grilled sourdough bread.

Better, hotter, and definitely spicier than the patty melt in question, the commercial for this dish features Kate Upton really enjoying a Southwest Patty Melt at a drive-in cinema. 😛


I’d like One To Go, Please…And One Of The Burgers Too

Now, aren’t you gentlemen suddenly hungry and doesn’t Carl’s Jr. or Hardees sound like a good choice? 😆

Warning: Before ordering a Southwest Patty Melt please consult with your physician to make sure your heart is healthy enough for gastronomic relationships.

Oh humor – and drooling over Kate Upton – aside, this is one of the finest examples of television commercials I’ve ever seen. The drive-in setting, Upton’s pink sweater, hair bow, polka-dotted sun dress, and stockings and garters all evoke Americana and have a retro sensibility that pushes so many of the right buttons.

The modern cars and modernly dressed people around Upton just add to this. It makes Kate Upon and her patty melt a vision and gateway to an idealized time.

Add in the sex, and passionate enjoyment of food has always been a metaphor for sex and an indicator of sexual prowess and willingness, and you’ve got a perfect marketing storm.

Sort of sadly, the mousy brunette in the next car looks more the type to order the Low Carb It. – Original Grilled Chicken Salad with Low-Fat Balsamic Dressing on the side – so it’s pretty obvious that Carl’s Jr. and Hardees are still not interested in the female demographic.
