First Lady Ponders First Women Before Her

First lady Michelle Obama hosted a White House dinner on Thursday night for 110 girls from local high schools, as well for the celebrities she had invited to Washington to go into schools and talk to students about reaching their dreams. The celebrities were seated among the students at round tables with fine china and place cards. Deep purple flowers sat in shallow vases on the tables. Sheryl Crow and Alicia Keys were set to perform later in the evening. The first lady took the stage and spoke of all the firsts sitting in the room, such as the first woman to dunk a basketball in the WNBA, the first woman of color to go into space and the first African American woman to be the ambassador to the United Nations.

"And then there's me, the first lady," Obama said. "As I look around the room into the faces of the young women who joined us today, I can't help but wonder who among us will be the next first."

Is scrivener50 serious? Your postings will never see the WH servers. You might be drawing the WRONG kind of attention to yourself through these ranting posts. If you want to be more effective, address a letter to the White House and hope yours is one of the 10 selected...

Posting it here makes you seem CRAZY.

ATTENTION: Mrs. Obama, FLOTUS staff (please forward)



ATTENTION: Rahm Emanuel, WH Chief of Staff; David Axelrod, senior advisor (please forward)

It is a known scientific fact that radiation emanating from electromagnetic fields (or electromagnetic-emitting devices) can cause headaches, mood and behavioral changes, even adverse physical effects such as the induction of injury or illness.

Is it possible that high-tech communications (or security protection) devices or weaponry in the vicinity of POTUS and/or other high officials of government are causing physiological effects that could be affecting their sense of well-being -- perhaps even endangering their health?

Given the advanced state of White House telecommunications and security technology, President Obama and his key staff should commission an independent scientific field study to assess the presence and potential health hazards of both prolonged and pulsed-beam microwave radiation in and around the environment of high government officials.

Michelle is the LEAST classy First Lady in modern history. A racist and a traitor.
What a disgrace!
