Pelosi Announces Bid To Become Minority Leader In Republican-Led Congress

November 12, 2010 by  

Pelosi announces bid to become Minority Leader in Republican-led CongressThe outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has announced that she will run for the chamber's Democratic leadership position.

According to media reports, Pelosi released a letter on Nov. 5 that revealed her desire to become the Minority Leader when the Republicans gain control of the House in January. In the statement, Pelosi said that numerous experts have called the current legislative session the most productive in the last 50 years.

She added that while the Democrats' role in the 112th Congress will change, she pledged to not allow "our great achievements to be rolled back." Pelosi's bid will likely be challenged by current Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). The Associated Press reports that Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) may run for the position because he believes the party needs a more moderate leader.

Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) has expressed his support for Pelosi as the next Minority Leader, saying that she is one of the most effective Speakers of all time. However, the news provider reports that some Democrats will not back Pelosi. For example, Representative John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) told a Louisville TV station last week that Pelosi is not the right leader to take the party forward.

According to the news source, some Republicans were happy about Pelosi's announcement. Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele put his hands over his head and applauded upon hearing about Pelosi's intentions.

"My breath is taken away by that announcement," he said with a grin, according to AP.

      Boehner has said he will fly commercial. now if he only keeps his word! If he does, my respect for him will go up by leaps and bounds!!

      • Palin12

        You are right, I also read that Boehner will fly commercial. I also read Obummer’s extremely expensive trip to India and Asia accomplished nothing, no agreements with China, So Korea, or anyone else. What a waste of taxpayer dollars!

        • Disgusted

          Duh! It was a vacation! He never had any intention of actually achieving anything on the trip. What a total waste of taxpayer money – $200 million a day! REDICULOUS.

          • Bear

            Hey Disgusted…..You might be surprised to see what’s really going on with that. Check out Wayne Madsen’s article about several leaders and insiders in Washington advising Obamma to get out of the country while thaey try to repair some of the damage he has done as evidenced by the mid term elections. Even Pelosi isn’t happy with him. The article titled, “Obama conducting reign of Terror” is what you want to look for. It’s a lengthy read but well worth the time.

            From the article:

            “Virtual political guerrilla warfare has broken out between Obama’s inner circle on one hand and senior Democratic officials, including outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Party strategist James Carville, former Demcratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean, and, behind-the-scenes, Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton, on the other.”

          • Kinetic1

            Be upset about the trip. Be disgusted with the President. Be as outspoken about his policies as you want, but for heaven’s sake quit buying into the rumors! One foreign source that no one can verify gives an outlandish cost for the President’s trip, Beck, Rush, FOX etc. announce it as fact with no verification and some of you folks can’t let go no matter how many times the story is debunked. It did NOT cost $200 million dollars a day! Look, that’s higher than the daily cost of the entire Afghanistan war, which the Congressional Research Service puts at about $190 million per day. Do you really believe the trip costs more than a war?

          • Denniso

            It was a normal foreign policy trip for the president,nothing more,nothing less. The cost was no different than any other,except for the increased security that is needed in this age of terrorism.
            The right spread an obvious lie to gullible followers who don’t have the mental capacity to see through the ludricous number of $200 million/day…more than the cost of the Afghan war…stupid!

            Pelosi was targeted and demonized by the right ever since she made history as the first woman Speaker. Should she and the Dems run from the blatant lies and smears on her by the ridiculous right? No, she is an effective leader and the Dems support her and she and they need to stand up to the smearing and hate mongering and tell the Repubs to shut their mouths and deal w/ their own issues.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            dumnisso,
            correction. IN YOUREYES she is an effective leader and even that has changed. She WAS a typical stupid dem leader!!

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Oh, and before I forget, her one statement that we will have to pass the bill to see what is in it probably cost more dems their jobs than any one statement in history!!!

          • Denniso

            I wouldn’t claim that Pelosi is perfect…no one is. She can make dumb comments like anyone can, even you,amazingly.

          • meteorlady

            Denniso – she has been called “topic” by her own party members. I wouldn’t exactly call that support. This is the same person who thought it was “wonderful” and “entertaining” when Cobart took up space and time before congress. She is a puppet of the liberal dems and she is out of touch with reality. Her husband has made millions of legislation that she has support or added to, along with her family and friends.

          • meteorlady

            Ops, typed to fast again – I meant “toxic”.

        • Dale Weaver

          Hey that’s their Job to wast tax payers money and they are going to keep doing it until we go to Washington and shut it down and remove all of them that has destroyed this country hand cuff them on a decommissioned air craft carrier tow it out to sea and let our AIR FORCE have target practice on it until they sink it, May be then the rest of them will get the message that we are not going to put up with the people we pay to protect us acting like they are GODS and treating on us like we are nothing but dirt for them to walk on.

          • Granny Mae

            Dale Weaver,

            In all my years these people are the most spending people in the White House that I have ever seen. What else can we expect from people that have no use for America? He never put his hand over his heart durring the National Anthem nor did he wear the flag pin until it became such a major point with the people that he had too and then there is Michelle. She has never been proud of America ! Neither one of them has a grasp of manners or eticut especially when meeting foreign dignataries here or abroad ! They are disgusting !

        • Wanda C

          It accomplished the fact that the Obama’s got to tak another vaction on the tax payers. Hey talk about gaming the system….they sure know how. They really have the nerve, but Michelle is getting even with this down right mean country and proving for once in her life she can use the American instead of being proud to be one.

          • Granny Mae

            Wanda,

            Ain’t it the truth !!

        • Granny Mae

          Palin12,

          I agree only I say he is a waste of good space and air ! I guess he is just wasteful period !

        • meteorlady

          His expensive trip was a non-event. He is not smart enough to take on these countries. They would eat him alive and spit him out. As for the Boeing deal – that would have been signed, sealed and delivered months before Obama’s trip. Boeing is just letting him use it, but it will not net any new jobs because Boeing has a fairly stable work force and will not hire new just because of a new order.

          Very nice also that a sitting President was out of the country on Veteran’s day…..

      • JimH

        Hi Joe, I heard on the radio today, that the Speaker of the House always flew commercial until 911. With the speaker being 3rd in line for the presidency for security reasons they stated flying on an Air Force plane. We will see if Boehner will be told he can’t fly commercial for security, or if this addministration doesn’t care about security for a Republican speaker.

        • Bear

          Hi JimH,
          As I understand the records, Pelosi had a Gulf Stream available to her for her commutes but stated publicly that she needed a bigger, more secure plane. I think she was jealous that Travolta had two jets to choose from and his smallest was a Gulf Stream. Anyhow, being third in line for the Presidency has never been an issue. The last time we lost a President, we got Lyndon B. Johnson as the replacement and to my recolletion, we’ve never had the third in line have to step up to the plate. So, how can any of us justify her rediculous, expensive, outrageous requests and moreover, how can we possibly approve them? The real rason she got the air force jet is because she is one of George Soros’ puppets and she is a very wealthy elitist. The elitists look out for each other no matter how much it cost you and me. That is your reality check for the day……that is all!

          • JimH

            Hi Bear, I didn’t say I agreed with the logic, I was just stating the reason the government gave for giving the speaker their own plane, instead of flying commercial. I was also wondering if Boehner will be allowed to fly commercial, with that policy in place. I believe he should fly commercial.

          • Dale Weaver

            Hey Mark you said it but she is not the only one that’s a George Soros puppet what about Obama Harry Reid, Joe Biden, Barney Frank and George Soros is not the only Puppet master, get a list of the member Banks of the Federal Reserve Bank than find out who owns those banks. I have an article that every one needs to read a lot of this article can be verified in the congressional archives and when they read it they have to think about what is going on in the world. If anyone wants this article E mail me at deweav42@yahoo.com give me your E mail address and I WILL send it to you immediately

          • denniso

            JimH….you make a valid point and the extremists go after you…don’t you see a pattern from the hardcore rightwing? They’re not interested in information or dialogue, since all they care about is trashing any and all Dems who dare stick their necks out. It makes perfect sense that we wouldn’t have the Speaker fly commercial,anymore than we would want the prez or vice prez to do it…for one thing,the security would make it all but impossible since 9/11. Try talking to Dems and liberals and you’ll actually get somewhere w/ a conversation. Good luck…

          • LeRoyZ

            The story I got on the airplane at the time was that Pelosi didn’t like having to stop to refuel on her cross country flights, so the taxpayer got stuck with flying her in a plane at a rate of $70,000.00 per hour instead of the Gulf Stream which operates at something like $4000.00 per hour. I could be off one way or the other on those figures. One of the questions I had as the elections approached was whether the new Speaker would give back the plane.

          • JimH

            Hi Denniso, I didn’t think stating what I heard on the radio what the security procedure for the Speaker of the House is after 9-11 would be a right or left issue, just a fact. The wondering if security will allow him to fly commercial is just asking others what they speculate if Boehner will be allowed to. Not trying to pick a fight.

          • Denniso

            Like I said JimH,good luck trying to talk w/ the zealots. They don’t care to listen to anything reasonable.

          • Palin12

            Either way, Ohio is a lot closer to Dc than Frisco, saving the taxpayers from more government waste.

          • meteorlady

            denniso – I could say the same for your side of the fence. I am sort of moderate but believe that the federal government is too big, too intrusive and should leave most of the things like education, unemployment, and health care to the states. I also believe that there are a lot of Republicans that are on the Soros bandwagon only they are not as well known and front and center as some of the Dems.

            Please understand that what I believe in is that everyone had the same opportunities as I did to make something of themselves. If they didn’t it was their choice and I had no part in that choice, therefore, I feel I own them nothing. Right now I am footing the bill for city, county, state and federal taxes and all the entitlement programs that have driven taxes up. Seems that each time the state or local government needs more money, they up the taxes and fee to small business.

            If you, or any progressive, can tell me specifically why you believe I owe you anything, please let me know. I would be interested in that point of view.

          • Denniso

            Who says that you owe me anything? And, if you think that all people have the same opportunity in this society,then you’re not a moderate and a bit clueless as well. How much opportunity does a baby have who is born into a slum neighborhood w/ drug dealing parents and maybe even w/ drugs and alcohol in his veins? Is he supposed to run away from home as a 2 yr old to find a better life? Does a child like that have the same opportunity as a child born into a billionaire’s family? Be honest about it… Liberals recognize that there is very unequal opportunity in our country and are willing to use their tax money and the law to help level the playing field…’conservatives’ live in a dream world of denial about the inequities that exist, I think mostly because they are basically cheap and have to come up w/ a weak rational to excuse their coldness to their fellow humans,all in the self interest of saving money.

    • EddieW

      I thought she had lost the election…how damn soon can we get rid of her??? She’s done more than enough damage to this country, we hardly need any more from her!! Even the Dems want her out!!!She gives them a bad name!!!

      • Kate8

        Eddie, I’m sure she’ll try to do as much damage as possible before the new Congress steps in.

        • Denniso

          Sad to see supposedly grown men and women quake in fear and hate because of a 70 yr old female politician. In case some can’t figure it out,Pelosi won her election easily and will only lose her position as Speaker. You rightwingers need someone to hate,I realize that, but you could at least fake some objectivity and maturity,can’t you?

          • Palin12

            the same way you leftwingers hate Sarah Palin.

          • Granny Mae

            Can’t fake nothing where that woman is concerned. She is the most distructive person in Washingtom. Can’t wait till she is out of there !

          • meteorlady

            Lets see – this would be the same as the hate given to Sarah Palin because she’s successful, cute, articulate in a homey sort of way and is outspoken about liberal causes.

            I believe that Pelosi is a self-serving egotist like all the rest. Her “district” is made up of fruits and nuts and some rich folks that like to dabble in social experimentation, but not with their own money – it’s with yours and mine. They like to support liberal causes because they believe it makes them appear to be sympathetic toward the masses. It’s all an ego thing with them, not any of them probably goes out and actually volunteer their time to make their communities better.

          • Denniso

            Paln is ‘articulate in a homey sort of way’??? Do you mean,essentially, that she can’t speak or think very well? You people have already had your,’articulate in a homey sort of way guy’, Bush. Can you say ‘nucular’? Do you really want to hoist another dim bulb up to your top leadership position? Why? Because she’ll drink a beer w/ you?

      I would prat that the wicked witch of the west’s last plane ride ends with one of the pilots walking back and looking at Pelosi and stating “Allah u akbar”,flipping her off,walking back into the cockpit and locking the door,and putting the aircraft in a nosedive into the ground.

        The new speaker of the house (an actual American,and not a walking advertisement for botox).John Boehner has already stated he will fly commercial.Here is something for your public educated liberal progressive mind to wrap itself around.We real Americans that care about our Republic have,since 2006,been secretely training deranged alley cats to attack and sexually asault all liberal progressives,and then eat them.So,the next time you hear a “meow” in the dark,run for your worthless life.

          Frankly, evil Pelosi just needs to GO HOME and be a grandma and a wino and drink all her wine on her $25 million vineyard and eat tuna 3 times a day from her husband’s company.

          I’m not so sure the Republicans like her being a leader in the house, (I’m sure they are SICK of her and her agenda), but they say it will help them in the next election as “the storm”… Pelosi, Reid & obama… will be the force of evil to vote agaisnt in 2012.

      • Bunksweeper

        Wild Bill, I agree 100%. However, she would probably think that your gesture and comment was an indication of agreement with the good job that she thinks that she has done. She is like an ostrich with her head buried in the sand. What part of no does she not understand?

        • Denniso

          Do you really think that any sane leader is going to listen to people carrying their shiny guns to protests and can’t put together a rational thought and can only shout cliches and mantras given to them by their puppet masters??

          • Allan Halbert

            Denniso-

            Your comment reflects the essence of liberal/Progressive thinking at this point: No matter how the mid-terms turned out, no matter what the majority of the public indicates in polls, in town halls, in rallies, or on this site, L/P’s simply WILL NOT accept that Americans DO NOT AGREE with the policies we have been under with Congress for 4 years and with Obama. This would ackowledge that conservatives can have legitimate opinions and would have to be persuaded with good arguments. Since that is unacceptable or difficult to do, conservative are deemed either racist, evil, or stupid, depending on the day of the week. The strategy has not worked well for LP’s recently, but it is what it is. Not much point in dialogue.

          • meteorlady

            Great – no you’ve resorted to name calling and insults. Nice – you finally show that you are not articulate enough to comment intelligently and with facts and links. When all else fails, insult and call names – yup – you might also try “racist” – that seems to stop discourse for a time – oh wait it doesn’t anymore because we know that one also.

          • Denniso

            Allan Halbert…you sound reasonably sane and intelligent,so I’ll respond. First, there is almost no typical liberal or progressive view because our ‘side’ is so diverse and often divergent on issues and approaches. Secondly, you’re only repeating the Repub cliche, that ‘all americans’,or,’americans’ don’t agree w/ Dem/Obama policies.
            You’re using a broad generality in trying to make your point,and it isn’t true. A majority of americans support most of the healthcare bill. A majority of americans support the scientific evidence on global warming. The vast majority support most of the social programs initiated by Dems over the decades and fought by the Repubs every step of the way.
            Even looking at the election results,it wasn’t ‘all americans’ who sided w/ Repubs, obviously. The Dems kept the Senate, and many tea party and regular Repubs lost in big races, so it is hardly a resounding mandate for the Repubs and against the Dems.

            I’ve accepted for decades that we live in a mostly conservative,christian,hardcore capitalist country, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t tens of millions of progressive and more radical leftists who are part of our country. We don’t have an absolute majority rule system,luckily, or we would all have to bow before the dominant ideology at any point in time. It’s the genius of the mix of House,Senate,Judiciary and executive branches. The Senate gives my little state 2 Senators just like it does to the largest states. The Supreme Court makes decisions based upon the constitution whether for Exxon or a school teacher.

            The public is impatient w/ the pace of recovery from the biggest collapse in 80 yrs and many people are hurting economically, so it’s hardly surprising that many people voted agains the status quo…add to that the incessant efforts of the Repubs and Limbaugh/Beck/Savage in trying to literally destroy Obama from the first day of his presidency, and you get the result we did. If the Repubs had spent 1/10th of the time,energy and money in trying to help the country recover, we would already be looking back at the recession from a healthy and prospering economy now. Mitch McConnell and others said it…their primary purpose was to defeat Obama. Not help the country,no, just do what it took to get back in power. They were moderately successful,but if they mistake it as a total mandate they won’t get any further than this in 2 yrs.

          • Allan Halbert

            Denniso-

            Yes there are different flavors of libs and conservatives. That’s a given. I didn’t say “all” Americans. A MAJORITY don’t agree with Obama policy, feel we are headed in the wrong direction, and that explains the elections. What Obama may have implied in campaigning is one thing. His policies are another. Again, my point is that conservatives are called either racist, evil or stupid for opposing those policies, and I hope you realize that strategy is going to fail.

            A broad generality is also known as common sense. Americans may support aspects of the healthcare bill (bearing in mind that not even Nancy Pelosi is sure what’s in it). But more to the point, a majority wants it repealed, and LP’s need to come to terms with that. Global warming isn’t currently in the top five concerns of Americans. Their is no party mandate. It’s a fix it or else mandate, and I can guarantee LP’s that conservatives are watching Republicans closely. We have seen that the White House and Congress have ridden their “mandate” into the ground. Now we will see if any of them, including Republicans, are listening. The point still is that

          • Denniso

            The majority of Americans, and the rest of the western world,favor doing something about global warming. The Repubs listen to Limbaugh and Savage who claim it’s a hoax designed to wreck the country for the sake of a one world dictatorship. Since a majority are in favor,should we began some corrective action now since you believe that we are ruled not by representatives but majority rule? A majority was opposed to the perverse and illegal Bush invasion of Iraq,so Bush should have listened to the majority and not invaded?

            The Dems still hold most of the power and that’s not changed by the Repubs holding the House. Your America is not homogeneous and there are millions who support Obama and the Dems policies and they will act on that fact.

      • Wanda C

        Why not just cut the rubber bands that keeps her face so tight and let her fly? This accomplishes two things it won’t cost the tax payers and maybe she will shoot out so far no one will ever find her. Oops over shot the run way.

    • Bluebonnet

      Where is the entitlement for a private jet for any member of Congress? These people are not royalty but they sure have set themselves up as such with automatic payraises and all the comforts and perks of a privileged class. They do not need limousines, private chauffeurs or private jets. I am still waiting for Ms. Pelosi to be punished for violating the Logan Act when she went to Syria with her plane load of friends. And, why did she bill the tax payers for her personal $100,000 liquor bill? Another slip of the pen or memory. Guess some privileged few believe themselves above the law and carry on as such.

      • meteorlady

        If you look at any communist, Marxist or socialist country in the world, you will find that the politicians in power are somehow royalty. They ride in limos, eat the best food prepared by the best chefs, drink expensive wine, and generally live lavishly. All this, while advocating that we support they poor and under privileged through legislation and confiscation of our earnings. After all, what happens in these types of governments doesn’t mean that the ruling class has to back off their luxuries.

    1. Audacity of Nope extracted exceedingly low possible jobless rate compared with the extremely critical market situation, while D.S. economy was held hostage by Audacity of Nope, and time was running out.
    Prior to the full recovery, the Stimulus Package was all about Lehman Brothers or not of D.S. economy.
     
    2. Last year, Warren buffet warmed in an interview with NBC that the D.S. economy was in free fall. Plus, tragically, the Japan economic leader committed suicide before the strong export report, last year.
    As we know, blocking Free Fall From Cliff requires multiple efforts.
     
    3. Global austerity policy dealt a harsh blow to the burgeoning economic activity. By ruling out this critical factor, Power-only party of objection for objection & Almost Dead Media led Independents to Fuel the reps Gains.
    For example, Japan export recently took a hit from the low demand world-wide.
     
    4. As a groundwork, the Stimulus Package alone can’t complete a perfect building. Sadly, extension of oil wars displaced Energy Independence or A Jobs law, empowering the war party and leaving healthcare law near demise before survival. Accordingly, the Stimulus Package lost momentum creating Synergy.
     
    5. The most efficient deficit-cut way of government would be slashing the destructive war & military waste.
    Slashing the destructive war & military waste alone supposedly could be enough to balance the budget.
    Regrettably. opponents are instead critical of sound investments. ( Depression : New Deal = Great Recession : Stimulus Package (Groundwork) )
     
    Weapon Sell = Mexican Drug Trafficking = Destroy all, driving global economy in a destructive direction.
    Even Overall US intelligence budget tops $80 billion annually.
     
    6. I think Corrupt Money & Almost Dead Media led Independents to Fuel the no idea’ Gains. That explains why Moneycracy & Money-driven media call for urgent overhaul.
     
    7. Amid Massive Lay-off Panic, Change & Healthcare for all, After Stimulus Package, Opposition from lots of the Ungrateful.
    Taking advantage of benefits from Stimulus Package, Corrupt Money & Almost Dead Media & Power-only party turned U.S. into D.S.
     
    8. Over the duration of healthcare debate, using the preliminary cost analysis of CBO, the reps opposed the public option stubbornly, but
    after the release of final score, they have been defiant on the referee.
     
    ** Chanting deficit :
     
    a. Amid chanting deficit, the same old failed policy.
     
    b. Amid chanting deficit, hands-off approach over huge trade deficit from oil money spill & trade imbalance with China from remorseless health care premium.
     
    c. Unfortunately, as a direct consequence of remorseless health care premium, numerous folks have no choice but to hang onto affordable offerings, since one in two households is said to face a hard decision between necessity & drug.
     
    d. Inaction cost in relation to health care reform totals $9trillion over the next decade.
     
    e. Over the next 10 years, total Bush tax cut costs will equal $3.9 trillion, …. the tax cuts would increase deficits by nearly $4 trillion between 2005 and 2014.
     
    9. Title : A businessman is angry at his lost cash bag.
     
    A businessman is drowning in the ocean.
     
    Stimulus : we should rescue him immediately.
     
    Power first : Nope ! How do we pay for it ?, Just let him go under much like Lehman Brothers.
     
    Stimulus : He is dying right now.
     
    Power first : Nope ! You can’t save his money bag.
     
    Stimulus ( clock is ticking ) : : We can do everything.
     
    Go under : We are serious about jobs. Where are jobs ?, echoed by the angry businessman.
     
    10. Former President Bill Clinton said “It took me four years to balance the budget, then I gave you four surpluses, paid $600 billion down on the national debt,”
     
    And I’d say : It took 8 years for the Bush mishandling to get a final verdict.
    Let’s not fall for the outrageous claim : Heal the 8 year-long chronic disease quickly, but do not see a doctor, adding to the deficit.

      Soooo….you state alot of rhetoric. hsr0601….and keep blaming Bush!
      Obama knew what he was running for, and he KNEW who his predescesor was! If you democraps couldn’t say the word Bush, you would have to keep your mouth shut. Let me tell you this. The entire city of D.C. should not be lit except for street lights. No lights on the capital, the monuments, etc. for 4 days a week. Every American should have a Tax holiday for 3 months out of the fiscal year. Put the money in the hands of those who earn it. Washington needs to start the example. The federal government employees should be given one unpaid day off per week, and all the Senators and Congressmen should have their pay readjusted, all pensions should be changed and EVERYONE OF THEM should fly commercial. Thanks, Democrap. have a nice day.

      • CJ

        Spike, that’s the lib way… say a lot and hope you can’t keep track while calling you names to bring you down to their level. Even in his last point he mentions Clinton’s claim to the Republican Congress’ acts to produce a surpluss as his achievement. There’s your proof of their likes.

        • Denniso

          Clinton didn’t produce a surplus? I guess you think Bush did,though he doubled the national debt in 8 yrs…roughly $5.5 trillion to $10.5 trillion…great job Shrub. Now he’s out w/ a book of myths and plagerized passages. Better run out and buy it,rightwingers,he needs to become even richer and you need to stay fooled.

            No thanks denniso, I’ll save my money for Sarah Palin’s new book:

          • meteorlady

            denniso – obviously you didn’t go to the US Treasury website to verify the deficit. Seems that Bush had it coming down. Seems that Clinton counted SS Trust Fund income to claim a surplus. If you actually took SS income out, there was a $17.9 BILLION deficit. But, I guess if you “say” or “write” something enough people will believe, is that right?

          • Denniso

            First, all budgets have included SS funds when looking at deficits and surpluses for some time…Clinton did what everyone else has done and what Bush did as well. Bush also kept the multi hundred billion $ war costs off the books to make his deficit look smaller. Bush never had anything close to a balnced budget no matter how it is figured and he did squander the surplus left from Clinton.

    • ValDM

      I will continue to try to educate the lefty-loonies once again: Bill Clinton NEVER, NEVER balanced the budget. The deficit was alive and strong during Bubba’s tenure. There WAS NO SURPLUS. The surplus mentioned by Bubba was BORROWED money that was budgeted, but never spent. That whole myth about a surplus during Bubba’s presidency was just that: a myth. If you’re gullible enough to believe ANYTHING that comes out of that man’s mouth, please go crawl into a hole and pull it in after you.

      The “stimulus” should not have gone mostly to prop up govt jobs and unions. That was grossly unfair, PISSED OFF a lot of people, and didn’t create lasting jobs. Then Obama wants to get rhapsodic about a $50 billion “jobs” bill that still doesn’t deal with why jobs are created. It isn’t just access to capital or short term tax manipulations that the business community decides on. It is confidence in the level of intervention we can expect from government. LP’s can get as mad as they want to at people holding their money. (Listen to the frothing profanity on liberal talk radio on this subject.) As soon as you deal with WHY that money is being held, there can be a chance that real jobs emerge.

      • meteorlady

        As a small business owner I can tell you that it will be sometime before I am able to hire another employee.

        I can, however, give you a story. For a number of years I lived and did business in Washington State, employing 20 people. Most everyone knows that Washington State is pretty liberals – lots of social programs, lots of government employees and lots of immigrants and illegals. Every single year for the last 10 years my taxes went up and regulation increased. It is popular in that state to tax business – seems people believe they are “bad” and make too much money anyway so it’s passes every time. In addition, my property taxes were going up more and more every year and there was not cap on these taxes, even when you turned 65.

        Four years ago, I moved out of Washington State to Texas. I figured that if I couldn’t control federal taxes, I could at least save on state, county and city taxes. Texas is business friendly and there are tax breaks for being here. My personal property taxes as are the costs of doing business. I was able to hire 2 new employees as a result of the move. I don’t employ people and pay them a low wage because I want people that are well qualified and able to produce a quality product. I also provide health insurance. The health insurance premiums are going up next year – one estimate is 17% – because of the mandated coverages in the new health care bill. That means I will loose probably the 2 employees I gained. If the Bush tax breaks go away, I will probably loose another employee. Then add to the fact that more and more businesses are lobbying for legislation that requires more regulation (they gain, I loose), and you have bigger chunk taken out of my profit.

        That – in a nutshell is why businesses go out of the country.

        • Allan Halbert

          Metoerlady-

          I understand. You probably noticed from Texas that our whole west coast amazingly chose to retain leaders who have led them to financial insolvency! Huge unfunded and little publicized liabilities are just around the corner! I’ve heard only one plausible theory on why this election result would have happened — that people who have a strong sense of entitlement relate best to candidates with a strong sense of entitlement!

          Glad to hear you’re able to do business in Texas.

    I’m tired to hear the name Pelosi, Obama, Reid and the rest of the crooked gang…
    Here is a letter written by a former marine and Senator, I think it needs to be circulated again.

    “I’m 63 and I’m Tired”
    by Robert A. Hall

    I’m 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked hard since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

    I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

    I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.

    I’m tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .

    I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

    I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.

    I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.

    I’m tired of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but thinks that Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful; that thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress; that picked over every line of Bush’s military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his; that slammed Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever. Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn’t vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004.

    I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

    I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

    I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

    I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next? Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”? And, no, I’m not against Hispanics I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military…. Those are the citizens we need.

    I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

    I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the ” Illinois Combine” of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet.

    I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

    Speaking of poor, I’m tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

    I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

    Yes, I’m #@*% tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter.

Put them out on the Streets with the regular Joe and let him work side by side he would not last hmmmmmaybe 3 weeks at the most. But Mr. Hall Im proud to have Military Brothers such as you and im also in a miniority class of people and realy the first people of this land, Native american I was in Korea and Vietnam conflicts I have never seen where they ever rule in Washington Congress that they were conceidered anything other then military conflict. and more of our young were lost due to stupid seating on there duff and most of the time sleeping off a hangover or a problen of to much air time that didn’t cost them a dime just to comute to there Jobs in DC. Thanks to People Like You there are a few that have been there done that and did it right. and Sir in 2 more yrs. ill be *0 yrs old. but im still a ferm beleiver in my country even thought the forieners tried to steal it all and make us slaves or ither that or dead, and Statistic will prove that more native americans have fought in the Whitemans wars then almost any other ethnic people.

Clinton and others are making a bundle on royalty payments… hhmmm?

      • meteorlady

        It happens by passing favorable legislation like her husband got for his tuna business. It happens by getting inside information for favors. It happens because these people are corrupt and power hungry and don’t give a crap about the United States anymore.

    My hat is off to Mr. Hall. First of all, thank you for your service to our country. You told it like it is and I couldn’t have said it any clearer. The problem is that our elected officials only hear what they want to hear – what works with their agenda.

    I’m also tired and you are right, corruption is a bipartisan problem. Many voters are also to blame. Recently a politician, who had been exposed and was under investigation for just one part of her corruption, was up for re-election and received 70+% of the vote in her district. What does that tell you about the people she represents? Evidently, she really must be representing her district if the people she represents think it is alright. I still would like to see TERM LIMITS and people who represent me, should not be excluded from anything they impose on me.

    The intent of the Democrat party was to move us, nudge us, to socialism, Nancy at the helm. Her problem is that we are now “finding out” what is in those bills, yes those special bills drafted by the Apollo foundation and we don’t like it, her job is to prevent them being shut down and repealed or revised and reformed out of existence. This lady is a lightning rod for publicity and it won’t help her cohorts if she stands in front of the equalitarian vanguard one more time, the more noise she makes the better, the more we know what to repeal without benefit if reading it the better.

  • msskt

    Pelosi like Obama does not want to accept the results of the election. To quote Obama, “We Won”, yes jobs, were a big issue. But the way the Democrats were trying to force their views on the American People is what cost the Democrats their jobs. Pelosi says she wants to control the Democrats so she can make sure “their great achievements are not rolled back”, what she does not get is those great achievements are not now, nor were they ever wanted by the American People. She ignored the town hall meetings were the public expressed their views, and said you have to pass the bill to see what is in it. That statement alone makes her unfit for office.

      • meteorlady

        Funny – Texas legislature is considering a bill, introduced by a congress person from Tumbull (just outside of Houston), that mirrors the AZ bill and also withholds public funds from any city that declares itself a “sanctuary city” within the state. That would mean that liberal Houston would get no public money for programs.

        The person that introduced the bill did so because of the gang violence, killings, drug trafficking and because a lot of the illegals that are coming from South America are from known terrorist countries. They assemble in South American, learn the language, fit in with clothing and customs, and then move up to Mexico and cross the borders.

        Now remember, the same government that does not want to enforce our immigration laws just paid for full body scanners at airports, but won’t step up and secure our borders, which are far more of a threat to us than any airport could ever be. If the Mexican gangs and drug dealers can cross back and force with weapons and large supplies of drugs, think what the terrorist can do…. scary stuff.

    Pelosi just doesn’t get it. She has done a lot of work for the Democratic party but her work was not good. That’s the qualifier; “good” – “Not good.” Pelosi likes the life of the elite and doesn’t want to give it up. While the jobless struggle, Illegals proliferate the United States, Labor Unions take-over of all businesses, new health care to build Federal Government coffers and become totally corrupt, Pelosi just keeps ‘pushing’ like the “Energizer” except she is going in circles and not knowing what the hell she is doing! I guess it’s better to have a bad reputation than no reputation at all? I say Go Home to Pelosi and do some charity work – like help those in bread lines and give some of YOUR millions to Americans who are in need; but, get out of Washington DC!!! As Minority Leader, Pelosi would just continue to aggravate the American population and make real jackasses out of what remains of the Democratic party. Pelosi is a disgrace to the United States. Pelosi and Reid need to retire …not tear down the United States!

  • Nikita63

    The absolute BEST thing that can happen is for Pelosi to keep stirring dissension within her own party. After the monumental damage done by the Obama administration since taking power, our best chance at FINALLY having sane individuals in Government address our problems and DEFEAT Obama and his Statist agenda lies in investigating everything they did against the will of the majority and, prosecuting ALL of them to the fullest extent of the law as is provided for in the Constitution and the Rule Of Law,for what President pretty boy and the most Senile Congress in U.S. history have ever perpetrated on a free people. We have been saying from nearly the beginning that we would take our country back. This election result was only the beginning. By the time an enraged electorate is through, there may not BE a democratic party; at least, not in the arrogant,imperial, disdaining,anti-citizen group of progressive elitist parasites as it currently exists. Some of what has been done to this country by this president and the 111th Congress is treasonous in my opinion and by what right does Hillary Clinton agree to a small arms treaty or support it in abrogation of our 2nd amendment? The U.N. is NOT our governing body and as long as we have 23.6 million veterans and millions upon millions of privately owned weapons, IT NEVER WILL, NOR ANYONE ELSE EITHER! Are you Muslim Jihadists listening? You’d damned well better. Pelosi is in the dictionary ; defined as UGLY. As a nation, we can never allow another group like this to attain power. AS BAD AS OUR PROBLEMS ARE, a top priority blaringly NEEDS to be government reform. Legislation must be passed REQUIRING all government personnel, elected or appointed, to comply TO THE LETTER with every law they passon the electorate, WITHOUT EXCEPTION. That will cause better legislation, less corruption, reduced arrogance, and elitism and a sure knowledge on the part of those in government that they WILL be held both RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE for their performance. This is our country and, to illegals or Jihadists or Both, we intend to keep it that way. This is not Europe and Americans will NEVER Tolerate Sharia Muslim expansion if we have to overthrow our OWN government to prevent it. So, keep pushing Nasty,even those in your own party can’t stand you, and NEITHER CAN I!You are an imperious imbecile.

  • eddie47d

    Dang, Not one word about Dennis Hastert who was Speaker of the House in 2001. He also flew on military aircraft and he made them detour to pick him up. (From Plano,Tx to Ill.).Opps! He must be a Republican who wastes taxpayers money so he gets a free pass. I sure hope that whoever is the Senate Minority Leader will keep a close eye on the obstructionist Republicans. The Democrats had the majority and they let the Republicans put the squeeze on them. So I think a little turn around would be fair play. It’s going to be real interesting to see who gets the economy going and creates jobs. My bet is that nothing serious will be achieved.

    • JimH

      Hi Eddie, After 9-11 the Speaker of the House, being 3rd in line for the presidency was given a plane for security reasons. Up until then the Speaker flew commercial. Denny Hastert was Speaker when 9-11 happened, so he was given the plane. Before that he flew commercial.

      • eddie47d

        I knew that. So what you are saying is that you don’t like Pelosi so she doesn’t deserve the same security and privileges that Hastert received. I could care less if either one got that special treatment but at least be honest.

        • JimH

          Hi Eddie, Hastert used a smaller, more economical plane and didn’t run up huge bar tabs while traveling. I don’t think it’s the fact she had use of the plane, as much as how she abused the privlage of having one, that bothers us.

          • eddie47d

            I agree the taxpayer shouldn’t be paying for anyone’s liquor. Unfortunately the perks of some in Congress are quite high. Hastert made 10′s of thousands of dollars funneled through the Turkish counsel for political favors. I’m sure others do also. Even though he is retired Hastert gets paid handsomely and will receive “extra perks” until 2012. He pays 3 staffers over $100,000 each.Taxpayers pay $860 a month for use of a GMC Yukon and $6,300 for office rent.Totals over $1 million a year. These perks are beyond those when he was the speaker. The issue should be about all government largess not just singling out Pelosi.

          • JimH

            Eddie, Where did you get those figures? I would like to look them up. Hastert was from my district and was my rep. I added up your examples and it is under $400,000. Where is the other over $600,000 expense. Was that office rent per month. I’ve seen that office and the landlord is cheating him. It is next to a good pizza restraunt though, if it’s the one in Batavia.

          • eddie47d

            Google Hastert/speaker expenses. That is $6,300 per month.

          • JimH

            Hi Eddie, Thanks for the info.

    Former Marine Robert A. Hall’s letter Was published awhile back in the Boston Herald I believe. The Boston Globe would NEVER publish anything so truthful and currently insightful. That it is truthful and insightful should serve as a warning to the rest of us about the corruption and internal weakness of our politicians in BOTH parties. If we do not demand more of them and hold them responsible and accountable, our enemies, both external and internal will win. Would you give your children a legacy of Sharia law? Think about the displayed track record, forget the religion of Peace crap and see them for what they are; an enemy within our borders with a plan to first take the country over and then convert or exterminate all those who refuse. If you cannot believe the historical evidence and your own eyes and ears, YOU ARE FOOLS!

    Subject: News from the Manitoba Herald
    News From The Manitoba Herald, Canada

    “Reported” by Clive Runnels

    The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration. The recent actions of the Tea Party are prompting an exodus among left-leaning citizens who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, and to agree with Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck.

    Canadian border farmers say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, animal-rights activists and Unitarians crossing their fields at night.

    “I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,” said Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. The producer was cold, exhausted and hungry. He asked me if I could spare a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn’t have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?”

    In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields. “Not real effective,” he said. “The liberals still got through and Rush annoyed the cows so much that they wouldn’t give any milk.”

    Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals near the Canadian border, pack them into Volvo station wagons and drive them across the border where they are simply left to fend for themselves.” A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions,” an Ontario border patrolman said. “I found one carload without a single bottle of imported drinking water. They did have a nice little Napa Valley Cabernet, though.”

    When liberals are caught, they’re sent back across the border, often wailing loudly that they fear retribution from conservatives. Rumors have been circulating about plans being made to build re-education camps where liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer and watch NASCAR races.

    In recent days, liberals have turned to ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have been disguised as senior citizens taking a bus trip to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching half a dozen young vegans in powdered wig disguises, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior citizens about Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney to prove that they were alive in the ’50s. ” If they can’t identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we become very suspicious about their age.” an official said.

    Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organic-broccoli shortage and are renting all the Michael Moore movies.

    “I really feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can’t support them.” an Ottawa resident said. “How many art-history majors does one country need?”

            Christian Science Monitor

            By Lourdes Medrano, Correspondent / August 12, 2010
            Tucson, Ariz.

            A parade of states led by Arizona says the federal government is not doing enough to combat illegal immigration. But by one measure – deportations – the federal government is doing more than it has ever done.

            In 2009, the United States deported a record 387,790 people – a 5 percent increase over 2008. Nearly two months before the end of the 2010 federal fiscal year, the deportation rate is down slightly from 2009, but the number of removals is still likely to be “MORE THEN TRIPLE” what it was in 2001.

            The numbers come from a recently released study by Syracuse University in New York. Among the other significant findings: An increasing share of deportees are immigrants who have been convicted of a crime, reflecting President Obama’s desire to reorient the deportation process toward targeting criminals.

            ~~ I’m not so sure that “BALLS” is a prerequisite for good government, I don’t care for Ladies with them myself and women make up a large part of government But yea, I understand what you are saying ! IKE was da man of the day for many years. And he was under constant stress to be a “sensitive” and respectful man to all Gods peoples in the process as he proved it so well as Supreme Commander of all Allied forces in some of the darkest days of modern history.

    Nancy Pelosi’s arrogance & thirst for power apparently knows no bounds. If they are stupid enough to elect her as Minority leader, then the Democrats can expect “more of the same” in the 2012 elections. Even Obama appears to know when is the right time to “sit down & shut up”….even if it’s only for show and for a short time.

    At the same time, I hope the “Party” Republicans don’t assume we are any happier with them than we are the Democrats. The Tea Party Republican’s are in no way the same as the old guard. The old guard needs to recognize that or their candidates of choice will also meet the same fate the Democrats have!

  • http://wit55555 Sharla Cartwright

    She has not been benificial , why would any one want her or care about what she wants and does any more.Pelosi would just continue to aggravate the American population. She has no value except the 17 million in the tuna stocks that pay for her to run You lose this time Charlie your done. You made your points and we do not approve of you “smart remarks”. as: • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) told America that the bill would have to be passed in order to “find out what’s in it.” Obama’s health care reform and the tax increases that will be necessary to finance them as “a threat to individual families’ finances.” I added, “They are also a threat to the nation’s economic strength, contribute to the financial crisis, and vastly increase the federal debt that economists predict will add to the already existing mountain of debt that promises to burden generations of Americans into the foreseeable future.
    $569 billion in higher taxes; $529 billion in cuts to Medicare; Swelling of the ranks of Medicaid by 16 million;
    17 major insurance mandates;
    Take advantage of the hard working America people and make sure all the illegal immigran and welfare mothers (too lazy to work ) get free wonderful benefits. Last time I was at the DR 25 foreign-immigrants were there and i waited two hours and had appointment time Missed. displayed issues should serve as insights hould as a warning to the rest of us about the corruption and internal weakness of our politicians. We need goo Change and people. Lord willing this will be accomplished.

    • Kinetic1

      Sharla,
      How do you know those “foreign Immigrants” were not also citizens? Can you show that they are not paying taxes? Can you prove that they did not pay for their medical care?

      Now, to your other claims. You accuse the Dems of putting our health care at risk with their “cuts” to Medicare. Are you aware that in 1997, the Republican-controlled Congress passed the Balanced Budget Act which included the “Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate”? This complicated formula determines how much Medicare will pay a physician for the different services they provide seniors during a doctor’s visit.
      It has forced doctors who accept Medicare patients to face ever-increasing pay cuts, as much as 20% in a single year! Well, there’s one thing the Dems are working to fix.

      What else is represented in those massive cuts and costs you went on about? The “cuts” to medicare involve controlling wasteful spending and reining in some programs. Ever see a commercial where you are told that you can get a motorized chair at no cost? Well, given that so many of you feel people should be responsible for themselves, you must agree that asking the Government to foot the entire bill for a thousand dollar plus chair is unreasonable in most cases. And what about Medicare “Advanced”? The only thing advanced about it is the extra money the insurance companies rake in for the same (and often less) care. The new law deals with Medicare Advanced, reigns in over payments to the Pharmaceutical industry, reduces the cost of medication and helps close the “donut hole” created by that incredibly wasteful bit of Republican health care “reform”, Medicare part D. These are not cuts in service, nor will they increase your costs. The one thing they will do is reduce the amount of money the Pharmaceutical and Medical corporations make, and that is not too popular with Republicans. Why is that?

      • meteorlady

        Are you aware of the history of Medicare? It was passed as a “revenue neutral” entitlement. LBJ stated that it would pay for itself through specific taxes, just like Social Security. Unfortunately the Democrats decided that Medicare was not a “revenue neutral” plan and started robbing from the Social Security Trust Fund (it’s part of the general fund) to pay for the difference. Thus we have two bankrupt programs instead of one that would have remained viable and able to complete it’s promise to the American people of a supplemental retirement program.

        As for illegals in the emergency rooms, I was there last summer with my mother and there were a lot of them that required interpreters ($100 per hour) to get service. Most did not have a drivers license or any other citizenship papers so I have to assume that they were illegals. One hospital in a busy metropolitan city estimated that illegals cost them around $2.4 million per year. That cost is added onto hospital service costs and passed on to us, and our insurance premiums go up.

  • Richard M

    Hey Kinetic1:

    Obummer’s job is to spend as much money as possible. You know, overwhelm the system (a la Saul Alinsky). He doesn’t give a damn about the economy. That’s not why he’s there. His job as puppet, is to bring this country to ruin. Just ask his puppet master Soros. I believe the only reason people aren’t taking up arms and marching on the WH is because that’s exactly what ‘they’ want. Next thing you know, they’ll declare martial law and flush the Constitution down the toilet. All we can do right now is be in a holding pattern until the 2012 election. I’ll go out on a limb and predict that a false flag operation will happen before 2012, just in time for Obummer to save us. These corrupt bastards have infiltrated EVERY nook and cranny of our system. They’re in the universities, in our community schools, the local, state and gov’t. offices and in the so-called Justice Dept. Wake Up People. We’re under assault not by a foreign army seeking our destruction, but they are following the Communist Manifesto to the letter. I believe there are 12 planks to the Manifesto and 10 (or maybe 11) are already in place. As far as Pelosi is concerned, there’s one woman I’d have no problem punching right in the mouth, and I’d sleep very well. She’s a Commie trader. I hope one day I’ll turn on the tv and see someone putting handcuffs on the bitch and her ilk — all marching off to jail. How’s that for a X-Mas gift to the American people. Merry Christmas everybody.

      Martial law is the last step in their program…

      Richard,
      I can only assume you spent the whole week watching Beck’s “George Soros Puppet Show.” What a load that was, and you bought right in to it. As for the impending Martial Law, you can suspect all you want, but you have no proof. It’s not at all like the Bush administration, PNAC and the policies that lead us into the last 8 ears of war. You have nothing solid, but PNAC was out there looking for an event like 9/11 to begin their program. No, we didn’t get martial law, we got the “Patriot Act.” We have airport x-rays and groping, cameras on every street watching us go through our day. We are closer than ever to 1984 because of the actions of a Republican administration, and you are worried about some perceived Liberal threat being shouted on TV by a self professed clown. “Oh please, take me back to the safety of G.W. Bush!”

      • Allan Halbert

        Prove Beck’s research on Soros wrong!

        • Kinetic1

          Beck’s show appears to have been based on the book “The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party” written by David Horowitz and Richard Poe. I say “appears” as I do not have irrefutable proof that no other source was used, but Mr. Beck did refer to it more than once during the show, and much of the information he provided was taken, almost verbatim from the book. The issue here is that that book has been throughly debunked, and the authors have been proven to have manipulated the information, including quotes from Mr. Soros’ biography to fit their agenda. Mr. Beck did nothing to correct those quotes, bringing his “researchers” and “fact checkers” into question as well (and not for the first time.)

          The book, and therefore the show was a hit piece based on a discredited article previously posted by the Richard Mellon Scaife-backed right-wing website FrontpageMag.com, itself often and well discredited. The authors made no effort to address or amend the falsehoods printed in the article, instead choosing to continue the right wing attacks of political extremist Lyndon LaRouche and his followers. Mr. Beck has, once again taken information from a questionable conservative source and run with it as if it were fact. It’s become such a problem that even Bill O’Reilly seems to have trouble believing him.

          • meteorlady

            While I didn’t read the book, I did do a lot of on-line research regarding Soros and his background and how he makes his money. You might defend him all you want, but he is a sorry individual and I am sad that he lives in our country right now. He has a huge ego, claims we all need to be manipulated socially and that he has the answer to all our problems. When someone is that egotistical and controling it start bells going off in my head.

            Soros is also a hedge fund manager in addition to currency destruction. Some believe he is responsible for the collapse of Wall Street and banks going faster than necessary. Seems some $500 BILLION disappeared from the Stock Market as the Lehman collapse started. All within 2 hours – who had that kind of money?

      • Allan Halbert

        Prove Beck’s research wrong!

        • Bob Wire

          Beck is the little boy that cried “Wolf”! too many times.

          Often enough, some of us has dug up his bio and researched his life as much as what was possible anyway.

          Just allow me to suggest, if you chose to believe and follow this man and his visions after doing your homework. You might consider some out-patient counseling and take a serious inventory of your life.

      • Bluebonnet

        Glenn Beck provided undisputed facts. Obviously you haven’t taken time to check them out for yourself. Otherwise, you couldn’t in good conscience make such statements. The liberal left operate from a vade mecum, unable to think clearly for themselves.

        • Kinetic1

          Yes, Mr. Soros is a currency trader, and some consider this practice to me manipulative, but all trading manipulates the markets. The same accusations could be levied at the Koch brothers, Richard Mellon Scaife and any number of wealthy conservatives. Mr. Soros just chooses to support causes that the right does not approve of. As for his personal life, saying that a quote came straight from Mr. Soros’ own biography and then presenting edited or incomplete quotes is not the same as “undisputed facts.”

          I understand that Mr. Beck comes off as this cute, slightly pudgy little school teacher with a endearing sense of humor, but he and his “experts” are not the source of all truth some of you seem to believe they are. Their obvious political, sociological and religious bias comes out in everything from his skewed view of American history to the current political threat from those “evil Progressives.”

          • Allan Halbert

            LP’s like to say that conservatives are pawns of the rich. Has it occurred to you that defending George Soros falls into that category? This is a man who wants to bring America and other governments down. Do you really want to support him?

      • meteorlady

        So if it’s not true, then provide a link that states such or any other “proof” you can find? Soros is very open about his views and strategy so it’s just a matter of public record. He has been found guilty of insider trading in France, almost brought the Bank of England to it’s knees by currency trading, and has bankrupted a couple of third world countries to get them to step into line and follow the party.

        • Denniso

          Do you actually think that ‘a link’ proves anything? Don’t you know that one can find anything on the internet to ‘prove’ one’s point? A link can come from any crackpot site and ‘proves’ nothing.

          Currency trading is as legal as trading in stocks and bonds and the currencies are actually kept in balance by doing so.

  • da norseman

    Since most of the Dems have demanded that she not cast her bid as minority leader since they don’t want her to achieve that position and make it worse for the Party, I would tell her, “GO FOR IT!!!” LOL.

    Since she is still there, thankfully she will not be the House Speaker, she should be denied access to travel aboard Air Force transports to travel frequently between San Francisco and Washington. I mean, why does she need a Boeing 747 with all that extra space when it is costing taxpayers thousands of dollars for her constant travels to and from the West Coast before and after each Congressional session? If she needs a home, buy a house in Washington like everybody else and not use taxpayer dollars.

    If she wants to ferry to and from San Francisco, fly commercial like House Speaker-elect John Boehner who has vowed to continue in this manner by setting up a good example for all of these corrupt progressive politicians like Pelosi to follow. She actually deserves to fly in the middle seats of economy class on an airline with frequent stops and with the worst on-time performance that would really make her feel miserable and forlorn after those cross country treks. The same goes for Babs Boxer!!!

    What happened to all the crap from Madam Pelosi that she was going to resign from the house if the Republicans retook the majority. Why isn’t the Main Stream Media asking that question of Madam?

      Bob,
      I offer for your approval, the PLD Mad Lib on which I suspect most of these posts is based.

      WOW, what a (add rude epitaph here). Where does (he/she) get off? This (animal if female, epitaph if male) should be placed on a (vehicle) and sent off to (foreign destination). Even that would be too good for a (one or more derogatory ideologies) like (him/her). (She/He) has no other agenda than to drag this country (negative destination). (He/She) is nothing but a puppet of (negative Liberal …… who am I kidding, it’s always George Soros) along with Reid, Obama and Pelosi (leave out one name if it is same.)

      How do I know this? Just the other day (any Conservative talking head, as they all get the same talking points) was talking about (latest “Liberal Evil Doer”) and their plan to (Latest “Liberal Plot”). After the HUGE success of (recent Conservative fringe event) you would think that they would see that the majority of American’s agree with (newest Conservative fringe movement) and get out of the way. Well, if they refuse to see the signs of change, maybe they’ll understand the (muzzle of favorite fire arm or other thinly veiled threat.)

      FOR GOD (no need to specify as there is only one true American God) AND COUNTRY!

      • Denniso

        Really?? A true American God? What was God doing for all the thousands yrs of ‘civilization’ before we came along in the last 200 yrs? Asleep at the wheel?
        Even if there were a God as you imagine him/her/it to be,we would not be the special people favored by her/it/him,w/ the majority of people in the world ignored…that’s such a juvenile thought that it’s hard to comprehend as an adult.

        • Kinetic1

          Tom and Denniso,
          Note that this is a presumed template for much of what I see here every day. I trust you realize that this was sarcasm and that I myself don’t believe that there is only one “True American God”, but to read the posts of so many here on PLD, you’d think it was a forgone conclusion.

          • Denniso

            My mistake…I should have recognized your name as one of the sane posters here,but I must have been in a hurry. I also made the mistake,knowing that most of the posts are from rightwing extremists,of asumming that yours was yet another rightwing rant. I did wonder about your use of ‘Samurai’s’ finishing phrase,but asummed that other zealots were copying it.

            You’re right that there seems to be a template that fits most of the comments.

    OBAMA SUPPORTS PUBLIC DEPRAVITY

    Google “Zombietime” and click on “Up Your Alley Fair.” This mayor-and-police-protected sexual debauchery (naked men having sex with each other) regularly occurs in view of children in the San Francisco district represented by Sneaker of the House Nancy (“You’ll find out what’s in the bill after we pass it – TEE HEE HEE”) Pelosi – that is, in “Madam Nancy Pelosi’s Brothel District!” One wonders how soon San Fransicko’s “underground” saint – San Andreas – will get a big jolt out of what goes on over his head. View the above Zombietime “Pompeii on the Bay” before the predicted Californicatia earthquake happens a la Rev. 16:19 (“the cities of the nations fell”) and before other disasters like tsunamis occur (in Matt. 18:6 Jesus advocated drowning for any child abuser!). For related eye-openers Google “Michelle Obama’s Allah-day,” “Obama Fulfilling the Bible,” and “Imam Bloomberg’s Sharia Mosque.” BTW, here’s a new pro-life slogan: “Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms – and legs and ears and eyes etc.!”

    • Kinetic1

      Rachel,
      I support same sex marriage, but I don’t support the kind of display seen at Folsom Fair. Sure, they have a right to hold a costumed street fair, and they do warn that it is an event for adults, but open displays of intimate sexual behavior is over the line as far as I’m concerned. I’d feel the same way if it were a heterosexual sex fair. So if I feel this way, why would you assume that President Obama or Speaker Pelosi would support those activities at events like this? From my search of your heading, it seems to come down to the admonitions of Dr. James Dobson.

      So on to your other recommendations, “Michelle Obama’s Allah-day,” “Obama Fulfilling the Bible,” and “Imam Bloomberg’s Sharia Mosque.” Here I read a nice account of Mrs.Obama’s trip to Spain, accompanied by some hateful, right wing posts, “experts” using Biblical passages to suggest that President Obama is bringing on the end times, and more anti-muslim rhetoric from the right about a New York mosque bringing Sharia law to America. Nothing new, no enlightening information or transformative facts, just more extreme right wing Christian hate. Good luck with that.

    • Denniso

      Sorry Rachel, but I don’t believe that naked men are having sex in public w/ children or anyone able to see. That’s preposterous,and couldn’t happen between men and women either,anywhere. I won’t bother w/ your goggle recommendations as we all know how easy it is to fake pics or videos. This it a non issue designed to stir up hatred against gays,again.

  • chuckb

    rachel

    after viewing some of the photo’s you indicated i had to shut it off that is the most disgusting display ever seen.
    this is the liberal side of life, very liberal, and it makes you wonder how long god will permit this to go on, sometimes my faith gets weak when i see men acting in this peculiar manner. why would god invent man and allow him to act this way?
    this is part of what liberalism offers, the sodom and gomorrah, san francisco. barry soetoro and nancy pelosi are the “bill!” we now see whats inside. i’ll take the right wing hate any day compared to this.
    maybe everyone should view the zombietime site;”up your alley fair” it may open their eyes.
    to what liberalism stands for.

    • Bob Wire

      God is tending to God matters and the divine need not be called on for such frivolous worldly matters. You are demanding or expecting Gods hand to intervene? ~

      Hey? one sun solar flare could make us all toast in 3 seconds. One small asteroid hit could ~ could cloud us with a nuclear winter that lasts 50 years and kill all but single cell animals, bacteria and virus life.

      Stay off the holy water unless you hold plans to call down the thunder.

      It’s just national politics we address here , no more.

      • chuckb

        bob, this is gods matter, our society goes down and our faith suffers. to ignore such is like the rabbit playing with a rattlesnake.

        • Bob Wire

          No Chuck, it isn’t at all. God with a big “G” is said to have given man “Free Will”, the “only thing” (in my book anyway) that separates us for the animal kingdom. ( some would want to debate that)

          As the ideology goes, it’s only man that can sin ( be off target) via “free will” while redemption is offered. ( I’m not too preachy keen with the ideology at this point, as it gets rather “mid-easterner” with over doses of “guilt” and reprisal for reward.

          In any case, It has little to do with government politics.

          As the words of JC ring loud and clear still today.

          Give unto Cesar what is Cesar’s.

          Now unless you are some religious zealot ~ it such be pretty clear that this world God has not accepted as being fair or perfect but only to serve as a R&D proving ground and for mankind to be tested by matters of the flesh as we work toward more “lofty” goals.

          I urge you to not get lost in your journey.

          • chuckb

            bob, maybe you should speak to god about sodom and gomorrah, it seems man got out of the evident bounds he has set. so what’s the difference in the action of the gays in san francisco? from what i saw on the zombietime web site goes beyond the realm of animals, so, what does god do about this?

          • Bob Wire

            Best I can tell, God is not subject to my opinions or direction.

            I’m not convinced God should , would or needs to do anything.

            All things that go against the natural nature of this world are subject to their own rewards. Doomed , not doomed? Who knows ~ It’s not my call to subject others to “MY” will or to GODs!

            It’s only my job to spread the message as I understand it, as it was Jonah’s at Jericho. Wise is the person that knows their limits on worldly and spiritual matters. A heavy dose of “HUMILITY” three times a day is good for maintaining such a balance of “self”

            Now, ~ if God starts talking to you personally in a very loud voice I think you should ask him for some ID.

  • Bob Wire

    Well if Nasty Nancy was as ineffective, bad and as stupid as some claim, her DNC leadership role would serve you “not republicans and republicans” alike, both nicely?

    how might my logic be flawed?

    Sounds like someone is attempting to sell us some snake oil. Some 20 or 30 DNC congressman with a descending vote does not a majority make.

    I’ve noticed that here, the word majority is not clearly understood and subject to interpretation.

    It does my heart good to see she’d still interested in a leadership role, leaving me to think, she’s up to the challenge the next two years has in store and not feeling the affects of constantly reoccurring feeble GOP attacks on her character and position.

    Tough Granny! an inspiration to all women, young and old alike.

    • meteorlady

      If I had to use Nancy as an inspiration, I would think that all the truly great American women were being insulted. She is about as far from anyone I would respect and look up to as an ant would be.

      Give me a link to one single speech she has made that is intelligent?

      • Bob Wire

        Nancy’s strongest suit will not be found in speeches but her “mothering” ability to hold a family together through great conflict.

        That’s a hard thing to put off, every good matriarch possess these skills, the tie that binds. A special quality not completely unique to women but a gift many a blessed with.

        I want the right person for the position they hold and see a solid track record.

        Nancy offers both.

      • Bob Wire

        and on a side note; To be insulted imply to being weak enough to be insulted.

        So the word “insulted” is truly being either misused or ~ a mirror.

        Can you think of a time where , Jesus was “insulted” ~ I think not ~ enraged perhaps but never “insulted”

      we like the blame game , don’t we? ~ and some GOP Senators say if it hadn’t been for Palin’s meddling, the Senate would be under GOP control to day!

      I like Palin as a person, a citizen, a American mother image and an a political adversity and I’d probably like her chili and her cookies too!

  • http://gunner689 gunner689

    Pelosi is an excellent representitive of her political supporters, the radical left of the Democratic Party. As such she is the public enemy to real Americans who love their country and don’t want to see it destroyed by liberal globalists. She stands as an example of everything that’s wrong with our gvt. As such maybe she should remain in the limelight to remind us of what we fight against.

    • Bob Wire

      Well Gunner, if your are standing far enough to the right, the center appears far left.

      We have some far lefties about, but I know few that hold office today. Try as you may, to paint them so.

      The HCR Bill was modeled after early GOP blue prints. ~ The Bail-outs was first conceive and carried out under a GOP administration. These ideas and notions were brought forward and presented to us by a party that considers it’s self as “right leaning”.

      So your allegations fail to ring clear and true as you label some “radical left” as solely responsible for “globalist ideas”. That sounds more in tune with people that have the means to live “anywhere” in the world. I know of no such democratic’s personally but I know many republican that fit such a description, Rupert Murdock being but one.

      You pick and choose your battles and your words yet seem to be willing to deny others of theirs if you had the power to do so.

      I’m glad you don’t.

      This is really not being “conservative” or being far right but being more fascist in nature, which it darn near off the accepted social scale of social ideologies and more common with a anarchist or some camel droppings Taliban that wipe their butts with their bare hand and claims a pig an unclean animal.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder
    The Justice Department is trying to smear Gov.Christie. Over a 10 year span it seems that the governor over spent around $2100 in hotel expenses. Where was the Justice department when Nancy Pelosi was using US military aircraft like her personal taxi? Over a 2 year span she flew in military aircraft 31 times. According to the Judicial Watch organization to the tune of $2,100,744.59. This price tag includes $101,429.00 for food and alcohol. On just one particular trip from Washington, D.C. to Baghdad the cost was $17,931 PER HOUR. Either the Justice Department is using its power for a political agenda or they are a bunch of mental midgets. These liberal hacks in the Justice Department should be investigated by the press. No wonder Michael Savage says liberalism is a mental disorder. He’s right.

    • Denniso

      Savage certainly has a mental disorder and is a sick human…you’re in the same category if you listen and believe anything at all that he squawks out of his lying,profiteering mouth.
