I begin by making the unconventional request that as you read this, you imagine the theme to “Dragnet” playing softly in the background. “I was working the daywatch out of San Bernardino…”. Except the quirky detective is no longer Joe Friday, but instead House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The diminutive, insipid, toad of a woman who has interjected herself into our daily lives by means of her position, is at it again. She better start keeping a tube of Purell handy when she’s standing next to Biden, because she is quickly becoming the first documented example of “Foot-In-Mouth” disease being transferred like an airborne virus.
It would take pages to compile even the most cursory list of her ridiculous statements. Her recent proclamation that unemployment compensation was one of the best uses of stimulus money because “people went right out and spent it” comes to mind. Oh yes, they spent. With government issued debit cards that were accepted in strip joints, casinos and race tracks in California until just recently. Stimulation.
She was indignant when questioned about her $1,000.00 per week bill for snacks and booze on her taxpayer-funded flights back and forth across the country. That’s just the food bill…now imagine the cost of the plane, pilots and staff. She complained about her Gulfstream not being large enough and routinely booked the plane, and left pilots and military staff waiting, only to cancel at the last minute. A truly wonderful person.
Still, as only Pelosi can do, she has reached even greater heights in her ascent to clinical insanity. She has called for an investigation into “those people who are opposing the Mosque” and “where their funding is coming from”. The “Mosque” she refers to is, of course, the thirteen-story black eye that is planned, and maybe already doomed, for construction in the shadow of Ground Zero in New York City.
An investigation? Really? Funding? If I was going to investigate any funding, I would be wondering who is funding this behemoth Mosque. Now that would be interesting. But the folks, the 68% of Americans who oppose the construction of this victory tower, they are the ones who should be scrutinized. Hey Nancy…we’ll make it easy for you. We’re right here in front of you. We are funding our own opinions, with money we earned. And as is wont for Pelosi and this administration to do, she, and they, look right past us. We are a nuisance. Our contrary opinions are silly and racist and rooted in some sort of neo-nostalgic, quasi-Americana fantasy.
But the reality is we are the average work-a-day Americans who are collectively watching in horror as our country morphs into some sort of passive-aggressive continental freak. If you have to explain to someone why building a Mosque just feet from where thousands of innocent people died at the hands of fanatics bound to the religion that this Mosque promotes, why it is simply bad manners, than there is barely need to continue the conversation. It is yet another example of the “we’re just a little more enlightened than you” crowd looking down their noses at the rest of us. It’s irritating enough on it’s own, but when it comes from a woman who could easily pass as a Pixar creation, who admonishes the rest of us to tighten our belts while she flits around like a Princess, it is just too much to bear. Let’s figure out who is funding Nancy Pelosi. Oh…wait a minute…it’s you and me.
