Small Business Saturday

I only started seeing TV ads for this on Saturday itself; but then I don't watch during the week, maybe I missed the earlier blitz - but they were still running ads at 8:30PM, they must think this is now the emergency shopping season, so last minute is the last word, grab the pepper spray we're going shopping!

The POTUS (luv this acronym as it resonates with potent and ancient Greek roots for Poseidon) took Sasha and Malia (mellifluous names like Michelle but definitely not like Barack) shopping at a couple independent book stores (the ultimate endangered category when the Kindle Fire is the Tickle Me Elmo of this season) and what he buy but a Wimpy Kid book for the kids and  "Descent into Chaos: The U.S. and the Disaster in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Central Asia."  which I must assume is not for the kids, although as Potusial children they may have an interest, depending on how often B.O. celebrates Bring Your Daughter to Work Day.

So I must assume The Potus wants to read "Descent into Chaos", okay everyone answer me this, why?  Maybe he respects the author and wants to see what he says?  Or it was recommended?  Who would recommend this book to the Mr. Potushead?

So, sir, what is your presentiment towards this work and what do you expect to learn?  To be more specific, do you think you are not getting all the information you need on the job?  One more thing - are you aware of the signal this may be sending and is it intentional or is this, dare I say, a gaffe?

Did Michelle ask you to get it for her?
