Marion Barry to Give Away Turkey, Crack

It's turkey time and Councilmember Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) is planning to give away 1,200 birds starting at 9 a.m today, so sayeth the Washington Post.

Apparently he does this every Thanksgiving. The article isn’t clear if he’s giving away live "birds," which if he were, would be pretty hilarious to watch.

But you’ve got to HURRY if you want one! This event started an hour ago. You don’t want to miss out on all that free turkey… and crack. Do you?

As tradition, the Mayor did the same thing earlier in the month, but still. This is Marion Barry we’re talking about. We’re watching closely because only he could fuck this up in classic Barry way.

Here's the kicker. Barry made a statement and it goes like this. Washington Post.com:

But Barry has words for any jaded souls out there.

"I think it is truly tragic when so many people are unable to afford a meal at thanksgiving due to the massive loss of jobs and the impact of a slow economy," Barry said in a statement announcing his program. "America is focused so much on Wall Street and Main Street, but nobody is focused on the side or the back street where poverty is prevalent. We as a society of people just don't care enough and that cycle must change."

Oh fuck you, Barry. “We” (read: white people) "just don’t care enough” about the poverty, the government inefficiency and the political cronyism in this city that you've helped to create and perpetuate? I’ve got news for you. The city government hasn’t cared in decades. Jaded are those kids stabbing each other in Anacostia High. Jaded are the children in the city turning to prostitution just to feed themselves. (Side note: Will someone please page Laura Sessions Stepp about this? I want her 1950’s utopian-centric head to explode.)

And lest we forget, Barry has been the lead proponent in erecting the new Nationals Stadium EPIC FAIL. Evidently his answer to helping poor people is to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to price them out of the ghetto and then give them a turkey as a parting gift. And, finally, Barry has been one of the chief assholes blocking Michelle Rhee’s educational reforms, arguably the last best hope for the District’s public school system. A wise man once said, you can give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. But teach a man how to fish and he can eat forever.

Well, you can give away a million turkey’s Barry, but you’re still a dick. Just sayin'.

  8. I hate DC as much as anyone who lives here, and I've been here for nearly 20 years...AND I own a home in DC.

    But after all this time, and after much consideration, I must say: suburbanites who commute into DC are what drag it down. You are a collective anchor around the neck of this city.

    To put it another way, the urban rednecks to whom Marion Barry caters are NOT the least desirable demographic around here. That distinction belongs to you suburban assholes; black suburban assholes in MD and white suburban assholes in VA. Stay the fuck out of DC and it won't suck quite as much.

    Oh, I know what you're going to say in response: "If I stop coming to DC, it will collapse culturally and economically." To which I say: "GOOD! STAY THE FUCK OUT! QUIT YOUR JOBS IN DC AND DON"T COME HERE AGAIN!"

    Then the Marylanders will say "but where will I deal my drugs?" And the Virginians will say "but where will I buy my drugs?" And both groups will ask "But where do we go to pose? Being a poseur in Greenbelt/Vienna just isn't the same as posing in Penn Quarter!" Well, you're right. But you hate it anyway, so stay out.

  10. ALL CAPS GUY,

    This summer, there was a man wandering around downtown, yelling things. I encountered him at the corner of 11th and E Sts. NW. Other people I know encountered him at other locations.

    He was a tall, slender black man, neatly dressed. What was he yelling when I saw him?

    "ALL OF YOU MOTHERFUCKING WHITE PEOPLE GET BACK TO YOUR OWN FUCKING NEIGHBORHOODS. ALL OF YOU MOTHERFUCKING WHITE PEOPLE GET THE FUCK OUT OF DC AND GET BACK TO YOUR OWN FUCKING NEIGHBORHOODS."

    It was an endless loop of racial hatred and profanity, being shouted out amidst tourists of all ages and origins, in addition to businesspeople and bureaucrats of all stripes, on a gorgeous summer day.

    ALL CAPS GUY, you are that guy. Even if you think you aren't him; you are him. You are a castaway, stranded on the desert island of the past, watching in fear as a powerful passenger ship named "Change" sails into the future.

    Bye bye, yelling guy. We'll tell people of the future about what an asshole you were.

    I doubt you'd be familiar with the college scene in New York City circa 1986. Why don't YOU name some bands that we could buy on vinyl from St. Mark's Records back in 1986?

    YOU CAN DISCUSS VINYL AND THE LATEST INDIE ROCK BANDS WITH ALL THE SKINNY JEAN WEARING HIPSTERS FROM THE MIDWEST.

  26. All Caps Guy,

    Most of the uneducated people I know are devotees of particular aspects of popular culture. Classic Rock, R&B, Speed Metal, Starsky & Hutch reruns, etc., its all the same.

    I don't know you, but it appears that you are no different. Look, there is nothing wrong with being uneducated. But to frame your world view within the confines of the Pop scene in DC twenty or thirty years ago means that you have some serious mental or emotional problems.

    What is important about DC is its non-Pop musical legacy. Coltrane, Ellington, Davis, etc. Bohemian Caverns was and still is important. HR57 is both federal legislation AND an important part of DC's culture and nightlife.

    When I want go Old School, I put a Betty Carter disc in the CD player. Then I'll follow that up with a Wayne Shorter disc. Thats what is real. Hell, I saw Shorter live in DC a few years ago and I'm never going to accept that some dipshit 'artist' on the DC scene in the 1980s is more important than the entire genre to which Shorter belongs.

    That is what matters, and that is why I don't beleive you. I think you're just a 20-something dipshit living with your aunt in PG county. You probably have a dead uncle who told you all about his life in DC in the 70s and 80s before he died of AIDS or gunfire.

    I will never cease to say: "STAY THE FUCK OUT OF DC, YOU SUBURBAN ASSHOLE."

    Man, this guy sucks. I've worked for some obnoxious blowhards, but what a colossal ass this one is. Hey, read my name tag, dick! It says "Roger," not "NEWJACK." Can't putt worth a damn, always accusing me of handing him the wrong club. Says he's going to be here all winter before he returns to "the District" whatever the fuck that is. His driver's license is from "the District" of Maryland, so he's full of shit. Oh, but he thinks he's smooth, buying drinks for the cougars at the clubhouse. I don't know where he got his money, but it didn't buy him no class.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sheet, M@ knows more of what he says than all of you. I have actuallydone work for the DC Govt. and now refuse to work for them again.
    They had mainframe computers for each major group when a single mainframe could have supported the entire govt. Actually, a cheaper mini could have without the support staff, but the District doesn't believe in saving money. And I'm talking millions, not one or two either.
    As for those pesky Mrylanders and Virginias, as the DC councilman worries about, let's just move the Federal Government out of DC, and we can end those pesky payments to DC and the poor Congresspeople that get stuck on that committee. Keep the cherry trees and the buildings as a gift from a grateful nation. We're taking the momuments, museums and statues, you'd never take care of them.
    Now, you'd have real home rule, and everyone could see you fall flat on your face as a city. By the following year, you could sell the city to the gambling conglomerates, and try ceding the city back to Maryland, again, not that they'd want it, but all that gambling money might make the city more attractive and maybe Prince Georges County would annex it. You and the county deserve each other.

  34. Hey All Caps,

    Don't you realize that you're the real transplant here, not us? DC was actually founded in the late 18th century as a result of a compromise by a bunch of old white guys. The city never sprang forth naturally like a place like NY did. The FOUNDATION of the city is based on decisions made by old, fat, rich, white politicians. If it wasn't for them and their ilk, you'd never be here.

    There was not much in DC except old, fat, white, rich politicians and their staffers (your supposed transplants) up until right after World War 2, when a good number of African Americans and others left the South and moved up to cities like DC, NY, Philly, ect. So while my grandfather was a congressional staffer in the 1930's, working and living in DC for an Indiana representative, your family's asses were working in some little po-dunk town in North Carolina. So really, if you hate transplants so much, go back to the little po-dunk town you came from.

    And guess what, our yuppie asses are subsidizing and have always been subsidizing your family's ghetto lifestyle, whether or not you want to acknowledge it. If it wasn't for my tax dollars, your momma wouldn't have been able to afford to have had you in a hospital and you would have died in some shitty alley in Anacostia. If it wasn't for my tax dollars, you wouldn't have been able to have had free healthcare when you were a little kid and you would have died from that tetanus you caught on that nasty fence when you were running from the cops over in Trinidad when you were 13 years old. If it wasn't for all the yuppies living in Colombia Heights, you wouldn't be working at 5 Guys right now because there's no fucking way in hell the owners would have built 5 guys in Colombia Heights 10 years ago. We have given EVERYTHING to you, including your very ability to live and breathe, and it's still not enough for you people. That's right, you people. The rich subsidize the poor in this country. So the next time you try to steal my wallet when I'm walking home from WORK in Logan Circle remember, the government just fucking took 500 dollars out of my last paycheck to pay for your baby's Head Start program. Isn't that enough, you welfare sucking parasites?

    Face it, if it wasn't for yuppies (the original people of DC) DC would have been a hellhole that would have burnt to the ground in the 1970's. This is our city. Go back to your shitty little town in North Carolina and leave us the fuck alone.
