Michelle Obama: $50,000 lingerie spreeYeah, so our Imperial President says we all need to tighten our belts - yet the Queen closes down a Manhattan street so she can shop/drop $50,000 at a lingerie store.

Just trying to imagine how you could spend $50,000 on lingerie in one day - and thinking how many starving children that might have fed. Oh, but these are the people raking in millions, taking luxury vacatioons on the taxpayer dime, and giving only 1% of their income to charity.
