Look at Meeeeee, I'm Nancy Peeeeeee!!!
The balls of some people. Even if they physically lack balls.
Today I refer to the Speaker of the House, the Dishonorable Nazi Pelosi. Here we are, in hock up to our collective American ass, and she’s babbling on about a potential second round of a stimulus (ie: SUCCUBUS) on top of the Omnibus Bill (which His Obamaness Himself even said was far from perfect) and the first Succubus Package and the Bank Bailouts and the Automotive Bailouts and all the other bullshit we’ll be paying for over the next 3,000 years.
But Nasty Pelosi and Dirty Harry Reid and His Obamaness really grate under my skin when they continue to kick our military members in their members.
What? What’s that? You wonder what of which I speak?
Eric Shinseki, Secretary for Veteran’s Affairs, confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance.
Are you fucking kidding me? These kids voluntarily go forth in the service of their nation and in defense of the freedoms of repressed and oppressed peoples in Third World shit-holes around the Middle East, and you bastards have the despicable audacity to ask them to pay for their own treatments after losing arms, legs, eyes, or suffering horrible burns and traumatic brain injuries? How dare you?
Instead of bullshit pork projects, how about funneling some of that Succubus Package funding to the Veteran’s Administration to help with the therapy and rehab for our returning heroes? And incidentally, General Shinseki, what with your two Purple Hearts earned in Vietnam and half of your foot blown off by a mine, did you pay for anything privately or did the Army take care of you? Thankfully there's organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project to help our returning heroes.
And Obama, who has never set foot in a recruiting office let alone served this country he wanted so badly to lead, has the cherries to come out and say that we’re not winning in Afghanistan, sullying the sacrifices given by the 666 US soldiers killed in Afghanistan to date as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. Reminds me of last year when Dirty Harry claimed that the war in Iraq was lost and that the surge had failed. Shit like that mocks the 4,260 brave troops who have died in Iraq.
And Pelosi…well, I told ya’ll months ago that she bitched and bitched about what sort of luxury ride she’d be flying around in as Speaker. She wanted the biggest plane this side of Air Force One. She has to drag her strap-hangers, bootlickers, pee-ons, and other minion serfs like some sort of motley entourage waiting on her hand & foot. And since she has galley slaves to feed her grapes and fan her with palm fronds, the sycophantic slag expects that the entire Air Mobility Command of the United States Air Force is at her beck and call., with unprecendented demands for military aircraft and wasted taxpayer resources with last-minute cancellations.
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Department of Defense detailing Pelosi's multiple requests for military air travel. The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), include internal DOD email correspondence detailing attempts by DOD staff to accommodate Pelosi's numerous requests for military escorts and military aircraft as well as the speaker's last minute cancellations and changes. The following are a few highlights from the documents:
In response to a series of requests for military aircraft, one Defense Department official wrote, "Any chance of politely querying [Pelosi's team] if they really intend to do all of these or are they just picking every weekend?...[T]here's no need to block every weekend 'just in case'..." The email also notes that Pelosi's office had, "a history of canceling many of their past requests."
One DOD official complained about the "hidden costs" associated with the speaker's last minute changes and cancellations. "We have...folks prepping the jets and crews driving in (not a short drive for some), cooking meals and preflighting the jets etc."
So she just expects a jumbo jet to be on standby every weekend for her to scoot back to her lair in San Fransisco?
The documents also detail correspondence from intermediaries for Queen Pelosi issuing demands for certain aircraft and expressing outrage when requested military planes were not available. "It is my understanding there are no G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess. This is totally unacceptable...The speaker will want to know where the planes are..." wrote Kay King, Director of the House Office of Interparliamentary Affairs. In a separate email, when told a certain type of aircraft would not be available, King writes, "This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset [s]peaker."
During another email exchange DOD staff advised Kay King that one Pelosi military aircraft request could not be met because of "crew rest requirements" and offered to help secure commercial travel. Kay King responded: "We appreciate the efforts to help the codel [Congressional Delegation] fly commercially but you know the problem that creates with spouses. If we can find another way to assist with military assets, we would like to do that."
Speaker Pelosi came under fire in 2007 for requesting a 42-seat Air Force carrier to ferry the Speaker and her staff back and forth between San Francisco, CA and Washington, DC. Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was allowed access to a 12-seat commuter jet for security reasons after the events of 9/11.
Pelosi's office disputed the claim, pointing to White House policy enacted after the September 11 attacks allowing for the House speaker to travel to his or her congressional district via military aircraft whenever possible for security reasons.
Her predecessor made do with access to a Gulfstream G-V (known in the military as a C-37). But she wants a much bigger plane. Heavens forbid she migt have to stop at a secure Air Force base in the heartland to refuel. She demands cross-country non-stop door-to-door delivery. It’s not like she’s getting out of a taxi in a seedy neighborhood to get gas…it’s an Air Force base. Whassamatter, Nancy? Too close to them common people in the Red States? Bitch.
"Taken together, these documents show that Speaker Pelosi treats the Air Force like her personal airline," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "Not only does Speaker Pelosi issue unreasonable requests for military travel, but her office seems unconcerned about wasting taxpayer money with last minute cancellations and other demands."
Be thankful you even get to fly with the professionals from Air Mobility Command, Pelosi. You could be stuck on a commercial jet, delayed at airports, luggage lost, paying 10 bucks for a pillow, 20 for a blanket, 50 for a can of Coke, and having to pee in a cramped broom closet where some couple from Hoboken on their way to a honeymoon in Vegas just did the nasty on the sink.
Maybe take a bus, Mizz Madam Speakerness. Get out amongst the commoners and see how much they loathe you. We can call your bus BOTOX-ONE…
