Pelosi's Hypocrisy

I hate politicians. They are such scumbags. There isn’t one that actually wants to help people. They are just money and power hungry assholes.

You know Dems and Rep are excatly the same. They both want money and power.

When are we going to get a libertarian party to free us from this bull-shit?

Absolutely!

five-twelve,

I appreciate what you are saying. However, I must specifically call out several people: bradley, lumpy (100 meters), and tme.

If memory serves, these people were on the front-line decrying Republican corruption.

In addition, anyone who was vocally accusing the Republicans without equal condemnation for democrats, this is your time to demonstrate that you are not a hypocrite.

If this story about preferential treatment for pelosi’s business district is true, I expect those three individuals to be very vocal in their condemnation of dEMOCRATIC corruption.

If they fail to apply equal standards, then they will be laughed at heartily. Further, they will be hypocrites of the first order.

When the Republicans retain the majority, their Anti-Republican carping will ring very hollow.

I wonder how many people described this as “something fishy”? Am I wrong to expect our leaders to be smart enough to come up with a better pun than that?

When they advertise better. I guess they are hoping a grass roots underground type thing is going to make it for them. I think the Marijuana Party has a better chance at that then they do; after all they have a built in support system.

The libritarians really need to start making some noise. Now is the time to make some head way. As the democrats will soon find out, they weren’t hired. The republicans were fired and deserved to be because they acted like pussies. I like the libritarians, but they need to rattle some cages. Just being right and having a point is not enough.

I heard an interesting stat the other day on talk radio. I can’t excatly quote the poll and who it was by, but it basically said that 73% of all americans disapprove of the job the senate and the house are doing.

Which leads me to the question. In our current society do we actually have “real leaders” in high power anymore?

I’m not old enough to have lived threw many presidents, but it seems that leaders such as JFK, Reagan, Roosevelt actually affected peoples lives and tried to make it better.

It seems that most good leaders would rather stay in the “trenches” instead of becoming “generals”, because they hate the bull-shit of politics.

I hate to say it, but would anyone cry if Bush or Clinton was ever assinated like JKF. I will tell you not nearly as many.

Look at the Ford’s funeral, tons of people loved the guy. I don’t see the same love for our generation of leaders. IMO

Never.

It’s a stupid non-story. The exemption has everything to do with American Samoa and nothing to do with San Francisco.

I guess from now on, we’ll have to get used to whines of ‘bias’ and ‘hypocrisy’ every time a Democrat does something that benefits a constituent… zzzzzzz.

Starkist is owned by Del Monte who is owned by Heinz. Heinz political contributions:

$55,769 to Democrats (29%)
$136,420 to Republicans (71%)

Aren’t there any important stories to talk about? Why do you guys even read the Washington Times, anyway? Don’t you know it’s owned by Reverend Moon?

“One of the biggest opponents of the federal minimum wage in Samoa is StarKist Tuna, which owns one of the two packing plants that together employ more than 5,000 Samoans, or nearly 75 percent of the island’s work force. StarKist’s parent company, Del Monte Corp., has headquarters in San Francisco, which is represented by Mrs. Pelosi. The other plant belongs to California-based Chicken of the Sea.”

Why do the Democrats oppose raising the minimum wage for these workers but support it in all the other territories?

All politicians are “whores”. They all turn political tricks for corporate lobbies.

The real leaders–the leaders “in the trenches” as described above, care not for power and do not succumb to such corruption. The problem is that they are too happy doing what they do from the trenches to step up and lead from political office and when they do it is only a matter of time before they become “systemized”. When in Rome…

Man, I am a cynic.

bradley,

You made my point about hypocrisy.

Did it even CROSS your mind how you would be reacting if this was a Republican?

Never mind, I know that answer.

tme? lumpy?

Yes.

But, I might also throw in some additional commentary.

Think marketing.

I’m keeping my message simple and effective.

Pelosi is a skank whore for the left.

Well, as long as you can keep all your political commentary confined to single sentences they should be quite well received.

The point is, politicians are not accountable by anyone. They can just do what they want and we get fucked. Come election time its always the same mantra, “I guess I will vote for the lesser of the two evils”.

I mean I from Boston, and I still can’t believe people vote for Kennedy. He is such a scumbag, but no one will fight toe to toe against him come elections. So we just sit there and let his fat ass embarass the commonwealth every time he talks.

You have to think of it like organized crime. On one side you have the Giovannis, and on the other side you have the Gambinos. They fight all the time and sometimes someone gets shot.

When anything comes along that threatens the overall crime business, they unite and fight against the opposing force together.
