“Got a nice letter from Mike Bloomberg today, not asking for money but introducing himself, trumpeting his accomplishments, and informing me ‘there is no problem we cannot solve by working hard and working together;’ wow” by Chef Cheryl La Tigre

If I am wrong about Bloomberg being ‘Trump’s secret weapon,’ then I expect we will see a mayoral sandwich- Bloomy-Butti 2020
Honolulu, HI 96782, 02-22-2020 Saturday: Fallout from Wednesday night’s Democratic debate continues as the Dems are bashing one another as though they are gladiators in the middle of the Roman Colosseum. One almost expects to see blood and gore as various body parts- including heads, limbs, and innards- fly about the various whistle stops on each candidate’s campaign tour. It is something to see, the infighting is so ferocious, so fierce, all because we have a group of wealthy folks (Bloomy, Bernie, Lizzie, and Uncle Joe) pitted against two commoners (Mayor Petey and Amy). Hypocrisy abounds, it’s ugly, and to tell you the truth, I expect someone else is going to enter the scrum like John F. Kerry, Terry McAuliffe, or Hillary, maybe Michelle.
Now, I must say as a Democrat, I still receive mail from various Democrat politicians. A day or so ago, I received a letter from the desk of Michael Bloomberg. Mike Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, not some goober from the island of Tonga but “Tiny Mikey” himself, the shadow agent doing the work of President Trump.
I never thought I meant anything to anyone other than at vote time because the only time leadership of the party gets in touch is when they want me to pull out my leather-bound checkbook and write them a big fat check that goes somewhere but whose honest whereabouts is unknown to me.
When I used to cut them a check for the maximum donation, I never knew if it went to help Tulsi Gabbard win her seat or to buy a new paint job for the house of Mazie Hirono, our esteemed senator from Hawaii. Maybe it went to her colleague, our former governor and Senator Brian Schatz. After all, maintaining a lovely home can be pricey here in the Islands.
I also did not know if my donation found its way into the coffers of our puffed-up governor or it went to some politician in Nebraska. Maybe it goes straight to Tom Perez’s Swiss bank account or to Hillary Clinton’s ‘charitable foundation.’ Don’t know and will never so hence why I stopped writing donation checks to the DNC.
Mayor Mike is not asking for money; however, his mailing is akin to a news letter with which to speak directly to the voters. President Trump controls Twitter and only equals can contest him there whereas Mike is going the other route and that is via the snail mail.
His letter is extremely comforting and nice. He trumpets his successes, as he sees them, and urges everyone to climb aboard with him so we can defeat Donald Trump. He promotes his fight against the NRA as well as how he is fighting climate change and that his parents taught him the value of giving back to those less fortunate than he is.
Now, I am a Pro-Life Democrat. I also am a member of the NRA as well as of the Hawaii Rifle Association. My hubby and I enjoy going to the shooting range as much as we do hunting wild pigs in the hinterlands of Maui. We use our firearms responsibly and have no intention of ever surrendering them as my colleague, Chef Itzi would hers IF she owned them. She hates guns.
We believe in Climate Change but not in what men such as Bloomberg and Bernie and the rest of the Dems on the stage do. We are already on the cutting edge of doing everything possible to preserve our environment here in Hawaii and I believe that everyone else in every state of the Union feels the exact same way.
You see, no one wants dirty water, unclean air, polluted oceans. What we don’t want is to have goodie-two shoes environmentalists trying to drive us back into the Stone Age by terrorizing us into ‘saving the planet.’ They are, after all, indoctrinating each generation of children into believing we only have 10-12 years at most and then poof- planetary cinders.
I will conclude my post by saying what I said earlier in the week: I think Bloomberg is the ‘secret weapon’ of President Donald J. Trump. I mean, why else is he out there punching Bernie in the face for being a communist, pointing out the benefits of capitalism, and the rest of the extraordinary, un-‘Democratic Party’ things he is pushing. Likewise, trying to strip guns away and leave us at the mercy of those who would victimize us? No one is going to vote for that which will give Trump his second term.
Thanks for joining me today and don’t let Bloomy fool you. Like I said, I think yesterday, possibly the day before, if I am wrong, I bet we see a Bloomy-Butti 2020 Ticket, one mayor on top, the other on the bottom. Ba-boom! LOL.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs.
That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born. I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career.
Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu. My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.
