In an interview on CNBC Democrat Nancy Pelosi said she thought the National Labor Relations Board should shut Boeing down in South Carolina if they don’t allow unions. This is why our economy will never recover if these lunatics stay in power. Why should the federal government have any say or power over any company regarding who they hire or where the choose to build. This is exactly why jobs are going to China and Mexico, why would any company not leave? Unions are just another drag on our economy that keep companies from doing business in the United States. Whether they like it or not American companies our competing in a worldwide economy where workers in Brazil, China and dozens of other countries can and will do the same jobs much cheaper. The days of getting $25 an hour to bolt stuff together our gone forever, the rest of the world has grown up and we need to face that fact. Liberals like Pelosi, Reid and Obama are elitists who believe they are more enlightened then the rest of us and have a divine calling to leads us to there righteous path. There existence is based on keeping citizens dependent on government, the bigger government programs gets the more power they have. The federal government has no business picking who wins and who doesn’t. To keep the cash rolling into there campaign’s they sell there votes to the highest bidders and the hell with the rest of us. When government doles out tax breaks, regulations and subsidies they are in effect picking winners and losers. The free market when left alone does a pretty good job, when there’s a demand for some service or product someone will try and supply it. When government gets involved they create bubbles of demand that eventually go bust, then you see the situation where in now. These bubble economies need to be infused with cash to stay afloat, and the cycle repeats itself. The Solyndra scandal is a text book example, solar panels are simply too expensive and not worth buying. So in steps Obama and his merry band of misfit elitist deciding the tax payers should subsidize his cronies business because they think we need solar power. They are trying to create a market where there is no demand simple to comply with there ideological beliefs. Who is to say those billions of dollars pissed away would not of led to another entrepreneur starting the next Apple or Microsoft. Politicians have no business meddling with our economy as long as they are for sale to the highest bidder. Its obvious that Obama, Pelosi and Reid are nothing more then boot lickers pimping for big labor. They are so in the pocket of big fat cat labor bosses they are willing to see thousands of jobs lost in South Carolina just to keep the cash flowing into there campaign’s so they can stay employed. Do you honestly think Obama, Pelosi and Reid are really looking out for your families best interest?
When the Pelosi Democrats took control of Congress on January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. The last day of the 111th Congress and Pelosi’s Speakership on December 22, 2010 the national debt was $13,858,529,371,601.09 – a roughly $5.2 trillion increase in just four years. Furthermore, the year over year federal deficit has roughly quadrupled during Pelosi’s four years as speaker, from $342 billion in fiscal year 2007 to an estimated $1.6 trillion at the end of fiscal year 2010
As “Not My Fault” Pelosi is purged from her house leadership spot she will leave the country in such bad shape all citizens will be left worse off. The $5.2 BILLION of debt left by Democrats and Nancy Pelosi is roughly 40% of the United States debt in just FOUR YEARS. The Republicans where bad enough but the Democrats under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership has left our country in such horrendous finacial shape every citizen’s future will be less well off then when this uber far-left liberal paraded into washington. The wastefull spending reached such a feeding frenzy it will take accounts decades to account for the lunacy. Nancy Pelosi is a poster child for everything evil in politics, she pushed through an unprecidented growth in the federal government which will choke each taxpayer to the breaking point for years to come. Pelosi and her fellow Democrats basically robbed every taxpayer while destroying any possibilty for us to have better lives then our parents. The reckless spending has decimated the spending power of every single American and left bills our childrens children will be responsible for. The Democrats since World War II have been the majority party for all but a few years and just keep adding to the already obscene growth in the federal government. As state and local governments cut budgets to the bone the politicians in washington just keeping dreaming up more repulsive ways for the federal bureacracy to control our lives. Most Americans taxpayers see little return for there hard earned dollars the politicans litteraly steal out of our wallets every day. As burdensome as local taxes are most of us can see better roads, safer streets or better schools. Taxpayers derive little bang for our buck returned by federal spending. Why should taxpayers in mid-western states be forced to bail out larger states like California or New York because there politicians spent there revenues on social welfare programs and bloated union workforces. The state houses in the worse shape are run by Pelosi’s fellows Democrats and or “RHINO” liberal Republicans. The politicians in these states spend taxpayers incomes more on base building and payback to campaign backers then on fiscally responsible projects. When our families spend money we don’t have there are severe repercussions rangeing from bankruptcy to severly diminshed lifestyles. When politicians like Nancy Pelosi do it there rewarded with luxerious lifestyles and future wealth that most of us can ever imagine. The sooner Americans wake up and send these elitist packing the better chance our families will be.
As Obama, Reid and Pelosi jet around on the tax payer’s dime trying to raise campaign funds
the bills keep adding up. Every where these crooks go the entourage of crap that follow these visits are costing taxpayers plenty. These politicians are not Kings and Queens but they sure expect the royal treatment. Estimated costs for jetting around in AF-1 is estimated at $280 million dollars an year as of 2009, and remember there’s two 747’s.
AF-1 Cost To Taxpayers
AF-1 Operating Cost
Don’t forget the cost’s related to military cargo planes carrying limousines, Secret Service and assorted equiptment. You can also add to that costs for multiple USAF fighters and tankers fly Combat Air Patrols. There is often a spare aircraft to backup AF-1 somewhere nearby. Don’t forget the U.S. Government has a huge fleet of jets just to fly members of the house and senate along with cabinet members and assorted bureaucrats. What do you think all this luxury travel costs you every year, guess what they have no clue what these 1,400 aircraft cost. As of 2002 it was $700 million dollars a year.
GAO Inaccurate Aircraft Costs
Now these jackals are flying family around on your dime, campaigning and going to fundraisers with fat cats with miniscule reimbursement. I thought Obama was the “Green President”, why not use tele-conferencing for most of these deals. Obama makes a big deal about a few useless solar panels on the White House, then hops into AF-1 burning $68,000 per hour of fuel and spewing hydrocarbons into the atmosphere. Its time this bullshit ends, unless its government biz they can pay for there own plane. There’s no reason that cabinet members and bureaucrats can’t fly on commercial aircraft. You know whether your a Democrat or a Republican all these bills are paid for out of your paycheck.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and members of her family and staff took 85 tax-paid trips on military aircraft between March 2, 2009, and June 7, 2010, according to new documents uncovered by Judicial Watch.
Pelosi’s daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons were on the June 20, 2009, flight from Andrews AFB to San Francisco where Pelosi resides, according to the documents. On July 2, 2010, Pelosi took a grandson on a flight from Andrews to Travis AFB, north of San Francisco.
Judicial Watch obtained the documents as a result of a January 25, 2009, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Previous documents received by the non-profit watchdog group revealed that Pelosi’s travel “cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol,” according to Judicial Watch.
“For example, purchases for one Pelosi-led congressional delegation traveling from Washington, DC, through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq May 15-20, 2008 included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewar’s scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.”
“Pelosi’s abusive use of military aircraft demonstrates a shocking lack of regard for the American taxpayer and the men and women who serve in the U.S. Air Force. Speaker Pelosi may have a frequent flyer record for taxpayer-financed luxury jet travel,”
Nancy Pelosi has always been one of the most corrupt politicians in the House of Reps, you don’t get to be speaker without mastering the circle jerk. She has for years played the payback game and passed around the tax payers dime like it was her personal slush fund. Last week while this beast was running her mouth about investigating the patriots who oppose the muslim terrorists desecrating the 911 site with there victory mosque. The real story was where she was when she starting to run her mouth. The Speaker Pelosi was speaking at a ceremony celebrating the Treasure Island land deal another crony payback to friends, family and contributors. Go read the full story it just a shining example of a Culture of Corruption.

Pelosi and her corrupt payback
+ + +
It’s easy to conclude that clients are getting their money’s worth from Platinum and friends – especially when the client is Platinum itself. TIDA has granted to Platinum the uncontested contract to be the sole developer of Treasure Island. Or, to be exact, that exclusive contract has been granted to Platinum’s new entity, Treasure Island Community Developers, with the master plan component going to Anderson’s other company, Kenwood Investments…
…Considering the grand, incestuous family that is politics, maybe it’s no surprise that Platinum’s development entity has been handed the Treasure Island bounty. Given the Pelosi and Newsom history of enthusiasm for developing the Presidio, we should hope it’s not too late to keep a close watch and short leash on Treasure Island developments. Unfortunately, this means paying attention to the entire family. That would include even the new president on the Commission on the Environment, Paul Pelosi, Jr., who is Nancy Pelosi’s son and Gavin Newsom’s cousin. As for TIDA itself, all the members are appointed by the mayor; all but one is a City Hall official.
Who else will benefit from the arrangement? Certainly Lennar Corporation will. They are a partner with Platinum’s Treasure Island Community Developers. Lennar has experience developing former military bases, and is one of the country’s largest residential housing builders.
By what could solicitously be called a coincidence, Laurence Pelosi was president of acquisitions for Lennar. He is Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, and currently works as executive director of Morgan Stanley’s real estate division…
$480,000 per month, $5,760,000 per year thats what your paying for that shrew Nancy Pelosi to jet back and forth from D.C. to California every week. Better yet she ditched her USAF C-20B Gulfstream for a Boeing 757 USAF vip equipped USAF C-32 so she can fly non-stop over us sloven masses after her brutal 3-day work schedule. perate. The Speaker and her passengers routinely reimburse the Air Force $120 to $400 for each flight. Just when did these politicians become royalty, its no wonder they have no clue what the rest of us are having to contend with. What do you think her carbon footprint is? This is just a snippet of the blatant waste and abuse we all pay for, there is no end to there assault on taxpayers. Recent FOIA request also show how she uses these flights to shuttle her family members from San Francisco to Washington for vacations.
