Have you had a Five Guys fabulous burger?

Zagat loves Five Guys

Zagat recently polled 6,064 people for its annual Fast Food Survey, in categories ranging from best coffee (Starbucks) to best salad (Panera). Among chains with up to 5,000 locations, Five Guys was deemed the most popular (which perhaps comes as no surprise), followed by Panera, Chipotle, Chick-fil-A and in fifth place, In-N-Out.

Last year, Five Guys also took top prize, though In-N-Out was the victor in 2009. Five Guys was not only the most popular chain; it also dominated the best burger category, putting In-N-Out in second place and McDonald's in fifth. McDonald's did, however, rank highest in value, child-friendliness and drive-thru experience.

Among chains with over 5,000 locations, Subway took the top popularity spot, followed by McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and Taco Bell bringing up the rear.

Cleaver hit by minority Republican for Caucus' hate speech

KC Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, has been served a “sugar-coated Satan sandwich” (now with Demon Drink!) by Allen West in the form of a letter of condemnation over CBC members stepping way over the line at recent events:
Rep. Allen West, the only Republican member of the Congressional Black Caucus, threatened Wednesday to quit the group over what he called “racially motivated rhetoric” by fellow caucus members aimed at the tea party.     More from The Source.

Wednesday night Perry Debate Debut.   Turns out he can turn OFF that Texas droll but he called Social Security a 'ponzi scheme'.  (Which it's not.)  The braintrust on TV thinks Romney won kinda sorta.  
 One commenter:   The Republican Party demonstrated to the entire nation last night just how out of touch with the mainstream they have become. They offered no positive vision for America's future and simply spent the entire time bashing the president for every single perceived crisis and pandering to the most extreme and base elements of the Tea Party. these people are not running top be President of the United States. they are running to be President of the Tea Party. That's dangerous.
Daily Beast Reviews who won the debate...

Radioman noticed that MSNBC had a lot to do with winners and losers...putting Romney and Perry next to each other....pitting them first with joint questions, and virtually ignoring everybody else.

President speaks early tonight..announces National Jobs Act proposal
 Obama wants a highway bill to create jobs

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is appealing to Congress to pass a transportation bill that would put money in the pipeline for roads and construction jobs, arguing that it's an economic imperative.

Republicans say they support passing the bill, but Obama says time is running out and "political posturing" may stand in the way.

"There's no reason to put more jobs at risk in an industry that has been one of the hardest-hit in this recession," Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address. "There's no reason to cut off funding for transportation projects at a time when so many of our roads are congested, so many of our bridges are in need of repair and so many businesses are feeling the cost of delays.

"This isn't a Democratic or a Republican issue – it's an American issue," the president said.

Why are we still teaching French in high schools and not Chinese? Because thousands of French teachers haven't retired yet, the teacher unions insist they stay on, and none of them know Mandarin!

Recent data provided by the nation’s largest health insurance companies reveals that a provision of the Affordable Care Act – or Obamacare – is bringing big numbers of the uninsured into the health care insurance system.
And they are precisely the uninsured that we want– the young people who tend not to get sick.
The provision of the law that permits young adults under 26, long the largest uninsured demographic in the country, to remain on their parents’ health insurance program resulted in at least 600,000 newly insured Americans during the first quarter of 2011.   More from Forbes....

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with big tits and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them!
