Hell’s Kitchen sent Chef Nedra home tonight, but the real question is why was she on the show in the first place?
Tonight Chef Nedra cooked her last meal in Hell’s Kitchen. I also watch the show Top Chef, and the difference in that show and Hell’s Kitchen is everyone seems somewhat qualified for the job they want to ultimately acquire. From Day 1 it was apparent that Nedra would not win, but she was slightly entertaining but over the next few weeks she made the leap from entertaining to obnoxious. She was often intimidating her teammates when she was not cursing at them. A head chef needs to know how to communicate in an effective non profane way, and Chef nedra has yet to master this skill. She simply became a stereotype. It left us wondering how was she managing to stay on the show? The answer was simple she was still entertaining to some, but today she made the move to the Blue Team and she failed miserably and she had to go.

I thought the deficit was the most important issue facing Americans. The GOP leaders were committed to balancing the deficit no matter what it took. Cut, cut, cut that is what Americans were going to have to do. This was by far their issue, but nobody is talking about the deficit anymore. Did it become less important or is there another way to attack the administration? Three issues have become front burner issues: Benghazi, AP and IRS. The IRS scandal is a valid issue. No adminstration has the right to target a group for special scrunity, and we lost four lives in the Benghazi tragedy, but let us not forget 4,000 lives have been lost in Iraq where was the GOP outrage then? America has a number of problems including jobs…no one is talking about this on either side of the aisle. Is there any governing going on in DC or is there only partisan posturing?
Why do the Obamas use a lecturing tone when addressing African American audiences? Today First Lady Obama addressed Bowie State University and the headline above is how Politico saw her visit. Sure she congratulated the graduates on their accomplishments but that gets lost in the sauce. Why highlight the negative at a time of celebration. If she was addressing Princeton, Harvard or Brown would she bemoan the baller mentality? Don’t get me wrong there are young people who view being a baller as their only ticket out of the hood, but they were not the ones that were sitting before her in caps and gowns they simply desrve our applause.
