With all of these Air Traffic Controllers falling asleep on the job, I only wish it had happened on one of the tax-payer funded flights that carried Nancy Pelosi and her entourage of family, in-laws and groupies. Not that I would want them to die in an aircraft accident, just get roughed up a little bit, or maybe a couple of go-arounds in mild wind shear and weather down to the minimums.
According to the Judicial Watch Verdict of 2010, Volume 16, Issue 12, the following numbers apply to Nancy Pelosi and her use of Air Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010. The numbers are made available under the Freedom of Information Act, otherwise you can bet they’d be buried deeper than Hillary Clinton’s weightlifting records.
Remember, now, this is the diminutive crow of a woman who stood watch while the federal government spent more…in two years…than in the two hundred years preceding them. All the while, blaming the Bush administration…still…for the ever-deepening recession. And…advising the rest of us to tighten our belts, accept higher taxes, and continue on an entitlement binge. This is the woman who proclaimed…and I’m not making this up…that unemployment benefits were one of the best stimuli for the economy because those people spent the money right off. Fantastic. And that would be true if the “money” she was talking about grew on trees or fell from the sky like snowflakes or could be squeezed from oranges like juice. The problem, of course, is that the “money” comes from the paychecks of the rest of us…and then we can’t spend that money “right away” ourselves. Indeed…we don’t get to spend it at all.
Imagine, then, that this same insipid bubble of a person spent in that 15 month period a little over 2.1 million dollars on Air Force aircraft. Over 85 trips during a 68 week period, aircraft hours just under 500 hours, or, as it averaged out, $27,715.00 per trip. Oh…that’s not all though. There was the booze bill for these flights which almost always included family of some kind. A little over a hundred grand altogether, but averaged out at $1,193.00 per trip. Not a lot when you consider what she demanded be available on the aircraft. Are you ready? Johnny Walker Red Scotch, Grey Goose Vodka, E & J Brandy, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Maker’s Mark Whiskey,Courvoisier Cognac, Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Whiskey, Beefeater Gin, Dewars Scotch, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Corona Beer…I’ll spare you the Wine List.
What’s more amazing than this? That across the country, it is the “left”, the devout followers of Nancy Pelosi and her philosophy, that are becoming so angry, vile and vitriolic at demonstrations. The Tea Party folks continue, by and large, to keep their cool. That’s amazing…because when I read how much of our money that corrupt, ass of a woman…that nasty piece of work, spent keeping that massive ego of hers afloat…well…it makes it seem like the folks on our side should be the ones yelling and screaming.
