-- Police say a security guard shot and killed a man at a convenience store named after President Obama.
He was identified as 23-year-old Jhai-quel Rai-Tez Black. He and another man entered the Obama Express Food Market, at 1400 18th Ave. S, about 3:30 a.m. and were apparently arguing, police detectives said. During the dispute, Black produced a handgun and began waving it around, police said.
Two armed uniformed security officers who had been patrolling the exterior of the store came inside, confronted Black and fired their weapons, police said. Black died at the scene.
No charges were anticipated at this time, police said. .

This is not a spoof. Is it me, or do you also get an eerie feeling that "Life imitates the People's Cube" stories are beginning to happen too frequently for comfort?
The Obama Express Food Market has its own . Since the first "like" was made on June 7, 2013, we assume that's when it started.
I imagine this conversation at the time: "Let's call our store Obama Express! With a name like this, there's no way there'll be a shooting inside."
Twenty months later, Jhai-quel Rai-Tez Black: "Let's go to the Obama Express! I'll pull my gun and see if anybody dares shoot me."
These Facebook comments on the Obama Express Food Market add to the story:
[indentr]- Food is very good prices are good too. BUT the people they let hang outside is bad for business!
- Name of store says it all. Keep on driving.
- This is sickening. Barack Hussein Obama is the worst president in history. He is destroying this country. And this store is a disgrace. If anyone disagrees, then tell me something he has done better than any other president. I will destroy you with facts.
[/indentr][indentr][indentr]- Yu just mad cracka that my boy got a store in the hood lololololol n bush didn't have one n yo hood fk yu[/indentr][/indentr]

All in all, this story - Black man shot at a convenience store named Obama Express Food Market - is a perfect summary of Obama's presidency: a low-budget cameo version of events in Washington and elsewhere, with all its manipulative marketing, starry-eyed idealism, outright stupidity, appeasement, anger, lawlessness, and divisiveness - with a necessary addition of the natural law that inevitably puts everything in its place.
If someone in the future wants to see a synopsis of Obama's legacy, they'll need to go no further than this story on the People's Cube.
Being named for Glorious Leader, it should give away everything it has.
Dazed but not confused by the Current Truth
Charles C. Johnson at GotNews.com is a good guy with whom we met and had a great time in Florida last fall (not to be confused with the other Charles Johnson of the Little Green Footballs, who is quite mad).
