Way to Go Nancy
If you don't believe in ghosts, you've never been to a family reunion. ~Ashleigh Brilliant
I really admire Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
She knows how to play the game of Congress as well or better than anybody.
She has a ignore your principles for free card.
There aren’t many of those around.
But Nancy has one.
That means in this game she is free to impose a standard on others that she ignores in her personal life.
That is a very important game piece.
She received it because she is the Speaker and she is a loud spokesperson for liberal views.
So the press except for Fox News gives her a ignore your principles free card. ( Fox News of course does’t count because it’s a raving right wing piece of nonsense)
Mrs. Pelosi plays the card well.
She attacks industry for pollution. She attacks individuals for driving gas guzzling cars. She struggles to get laws past to make them clean up their act. She is heroic in her determination.
Well done Nancy.
But almost every week she flies to California and back in a fuel guzzling huge jet she had special ordered for her as Speaker of the House. Nobody questions this because she has a ignore my principles for free card. Good for you Nancy.
Of course she could cut down considerably on her carbon foot print if she flew on a Commercial Airline . But that is so inconvenient and she can’t lose that much time.
Then there is the matter of government waste of tax payer money. Our hero Nancy is quick to denounce it wherever she sees it. She was really upset that those bankers who took a government loan dared to give themselves a million dollar bonus.
Well done Nancy.
Of course the jet she uses almost every week costs the tax payer $120,000 in fuel. Multiply that by the number of visits she makes to California every year and the cost to the taxpayer is over 4 million dollars and that doesn’t count the crew salaries.
Good use of the card Nancy. You play well. I’m proud of you.
Then there is the question of minimum wage. It has no greater champion than Nancy. She clearly states that everybody is entitled to a decent wage. She lead the recent Congressional action that ended in the raising of the wage from $5.15 to $7.25. Way to go Nancy.
But, of course she used her ignore your principles free card here as well and got American Samoa exempted from the increase. Apparently those people don’t need a decent wage. By doing this she helped Del Monte Foods since they are the largest employer in the area and they just happen to be one of the largest contributors to her political campaign. This gives Del Monte a clear edge over its competition which are in areas that the new minimum does apply.
Way to go Nancy. Very well played.
There is no question in the game of Congress nobody plays better than Nancy.
Nancy I salute you.
Tommy UK’s birth father is expected back today or tomorrow. Mrs. Trumble is hoping that he might have some ideas on how to find the child.
This morning a child said
Миша підбігає годинникOn the main street a tall clock appeared standing off to the side. Then a big mouse ran up to the clock and sat on the top until the clock struck one and then it ran down. This was repeated over and over.
Миша тікає годинник
Миша тікає годинник
Chief Ican decided that since it wasn’t blocking the street and it wasn’t hurting anybody he would ignore it. He assumed that like the other creations it would after awhile just fade away.
It did fade away but not before a number of women and one man were scared by the mouse. One lady was so scared she had trouble breathing. It’s not every day that you see mice that big on the street of Pigeon Falls. The fact that each time it started its run to the clock from across the street didn’t help either. It almost knocked one lady down.
A number of people , including the owner of Wink’s Woods demanded that Chief Ican do something about the clock. He was thinking of dragging it over to the jail when it faded away.
