The Speaker Don't Talk So Good
You know what makes the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi's claim that "500 million Americans lose their jobs" every month, so intriguing? That it makes your imagination soar in equal portions to your laughter.
A conversation between my porter (a Democrat) and myself.
He: "Hey, does that mean there are 200 million unaccounted for illegal aliens?!"
Me: "Yeah, and every single American, plus the 200 million illegals lose their jobs every month"
He: "Haha. So who's going to pay for the porkulus package?"
Me: "Printing money which will lead to inflation, borrowing from the Chinese, or having your kids pay for it, which will lead to massive unemployment since why work for lesser returns, especially when you can go on the dole and have others pay your way?"
Porkulus is a nod to his avid listening of the Rush Limbaugh show. He hates him, but he listens.
Tell me, is there something in the Congress manual given to legislators that makes all of them inflate our country's stats? If it's not the fact that we have 57 States, it's the 500 million Americans in those 57 States. Is this a redistricting ploy? Inquiring minds.
(And why is Nancy Pelosi, so ripe for mocking by the Saturday Night Live crew, with her monitor lizard facelift, and Kitty Carlisle society matron manner, so much a non-factor in their skits?)
Never has the modern leadership in Washington looked like such thin gruel to me.
Obama is no LBJ -- a man who made a career out of brokering backdoor Senate deals before getting into the Oval Office. This went a long way to explain the ease of the passing of his Great Society projects with a similar majority.
And Nancy Pelosi? Well, she's no John McCormack, heck, she's not even Denny Hestert.
No. They're just one mediocrity after another, on both sides. It's bound to catch up to our nation eventually.
