Lobster Prices Up???????????

LOBSTER PRICESThe best evidence for God is that we get to eat lobster.  When I married my wife (who was then kosher) my one condition was that she agree to eat lobster.   
Most of the time lobster has not even been (very) expensive.  Record catches in Maine pushed prices to historic lows in 2012 and 2013.

BUT, despite Obama’s effort to improve the economy in other ways, lobster prices have risen at

The sign reads, “Michelle Obama, 2010 Worldwide Lobster-eating Record.” Yes, yes, this is photoshopped

the  biggest rise in recorded history over the last two years. Wholesale live lobster in Boston reached as high as $5.25 a pound on June 9.   That is approaching the price of Dungeness crab!

This is the Obamas’ fault.  According to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the Obamas do not even respect the tradition.  Lobster is supposed to  be boiled.  When the Obamas go to the Vineyard, however they savor lobster tempura at the trendy State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury or go to  The Sweet Life Cafe in Oak Bluffs where Barack has  the lobster pasta appetizer while Michell has the  surf and turf entrée – the “surf” being a lobster tail .

    This is a tragedy. If this continues, lobster will be out of reach for the common folk.
