Wait...I thought pie is on Michelle's BAD list for allowed food for children? Barack better be careful or risk the wrath of his food police wife.

It took me two hours to get what "Pi" day is! Today is March 14th or 3.14! Cool!

Beaverton, OR

Ah....The Life of Pi. Isn't it fun to celebrate all the innumerable ways of having pie?

Don't worry, I'll bet the guy who thinks we have 56 states and doesn't know how to pronounce the word "Corpsman" didn't know what "Pi" stood for either.

Not to be confused with Utah's Pie and Beer day held every July 24th!

A man who takes cheap shots at another man's wife simply because he disagrees with the political views of the man is a far cry from a patriot or a Christian. He instead demonstrates perfectly the serious character flaws that our society has developed. Hopefully, the younger generations will recognize your comment for what it is: a coward's attempt at levity.

Is Hallmark behind this whole "Pi Day" thing?

Plan on having an even more serious celebration two years from now when it will be 3 14 15.


Re: Claudio

Patriot was not a cheap shot. It is true that the 1st Lady is running around the country with an eat healthy campaign, and pie certainly would not be included in that menu. Plus, have you seen or heard what our "young generation" are saying and listening to? If they take shots I would hope they would be as mild as Patriots was.

Claudio--You need to lighten up. It's our American right to speak out on our leaders when they don't meet expectations.

Michelle has been active with what our children eat, then was found with a big juicy burger, soda, and fries.

We were told to tighten our belts, just to see the Obama's vacation in Hawaii on our dime. He then goes golfing with Tiger Woods while Michelle vacations in Vail Colorado.

Commenting on hypocrisies are not cheap shots.

Springville, Ut

This was not Patriot's first comment against the First Lady. It was more tame than his previous ones.

Hypocrisy is not evident in this issue with the First Lady. I don't recall ever hearing from her or anyone associated with her that one should never eat a burger or have a slice of pie. Encouraging others to eat healthier and to get more exercise is hardly something to complain about.

I do know what the younger generation is hearing and saying. Your point?

Every president goes on vacations, as does his family. Again, your point?

It is our American right to speak out. I did so. And to be told by worf to lighten up is perhaps the pinnacle of hypocrisy.

Claudio--My point? Open your eyes!

* Michelle was vacationing at Vail Colorado while her husband was golfing with Tiger.--People are losing their jobs, and are being told to sacrifice while the Obama's take our money to vacation with. Who cares what other presidents have done--so what! You can send your paycheck to the Obama vacation fund, but don't force it on me.

* I can't respect an un-truthful, blame creating president. One who increased the debt by six trillion, told us he'd cut the deficit in half, and gives fighter jets/tanks to a terrorist group. There are dozens of un-truthful statements from him.

* Some Homework for you: Why did both Barrack, and Michelle surrender their lawyer licenses? Why can't we the employer view transcripts which Trump offered five million dollars to charities for. Where's the background check?

See the point?--Why do people leave their home country to come hear? To escape corrupt leaders they put into office. Please explain Obama's attributes.
