Oh those Women in Power, Sorry its a Rant


Sigh.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now wants a new jet.  It will cost us $600,000.00 to fly her and her troop round trip home and back.  She states its for her security.  Now remember they land in secure airports, not Sioux City, Iowa.  This is the woman who ran stating she will cut government spending.  We won't talk here about how much that cost her to run on that statement.  When it was leaked about the plane she warned they should remember who allocates their paychecks......a threat? 

   Now personally I would not want her on any flight I am taking.  Any politician for that matter.  I don't want someone who is angry at them, and they sure have a way of making people angry, taking down a plane I am in to get to them.  But...I can't afford a furnace....why should I have to pay for her bigger jet.  The $300,000.00 jet isn't good enough for her?  Oh my goodness, will she suffer a DELAY when flying!

   There are wonderful smart intelligent woman in this country.  Truly there are.  You only have to read some of the journals to get an idea of the smarts floating around.  The common sense.  The down to earth honesty of so many woman here.  Unfortunately those woman don't seem to run for office.  Too honest I suppose.  And what does run represents women poorly.  Please give us a smart honest woman for the first woman president, not a shrill screeching woman who couldn't answer a question in a honest way to save her already doomed soul.  I don't remember, I don't recall.  Who was re-elected even though she never met a single one of her election pledges.

Capitalism  ( this could be someones, I won't name names, theme song)

There's nothing wrong with Capitalism
There's nothing wrong with free enterprise
Don't try to make me feel guilty
I'm so tired of hearing you cry

There's nothing wrong with making some profit
If you ask me I'll say it's just fine
There's nothing wrong with wanting to live nice
I'm so tired of hearing you whine
About the revolution
Bringin' down the rich
When was the last time you dug a ditch, baby!

If it ain't one thing
Then it's the other
Any cause that crosses your path
Your heart bleeds for anyone's brother
I've got to tell you you're a pain in the ass

You criticize with plenty of vigor
You rationalize everything that you do
With catchy phrases and heavy quotations
And everybody is crazy but you

You're just a middle class, socialist brat
From a suburban family and you never really had to work
And you tell me that we've got to get back
To the struggling masses (whoever they are)
You talk, talk, talk about suffering and pain
Your mouth is bigger than your entire brain
What the hell do you know about suffering and pain . . .

(Repeat first verse)

(Repeat chorus)

There's nothing wrong with Capitalism
There's nothing wrong with Capitalism
There's nothing wrong with Capitalism
There's nothing wrong with Capitalism

    Every since I heard this song by Oingo Boingo I could only think of one woman.

    News Break.  Anna Nicole Smith just died.  Heard it on the news just now.

I wonder if she would fly me and my family on that new jet to the Azores at a good price..  HA HA HA... Cut government spending??!!  HA HA HA  What a joke.

I just hear of Nicole's death--and I'm sad--mostly because she left that poor little baby behind.  The baby with two dads.  : SIGH :

Nancy Pelosi......not on my Top-10 list of favorite people.  Oh well.

Just heard about Anna Nichole too :(( bummer, she has a baby that hopefully will go to the right daddy!  I can't understand why every politician in Washington cannot be made to go learn to fly and get pilots licenses and then go buy their own little Cessna's with all the trimmings for their own personal political use!  Do you think that would create "terror in the skies" over the USA? Maybe we would be seeing more UFO's then or mass empty offices in the White House! Good grief Americans are working their butt's off to support themselves and their families and these people seem to be so frivalous with the nations money! Or our tax dollars...boooya booya! "There can only be one Air Force One! :)))))))))Doreen

I really dispise spoiled politicians.  I served as a house paige when I was in High School.  It really opened my eyes to what government was all about.  Never in my life have I seen so much laziness.  One Representative called me to his office so I could carry a piece of paper NEXT DOOR.  Mind you I came from all the way across the building.

I think that there are a few men and women that do enter politics with a pure heart and good intentions. It doesn't last long because they all end up corrupted by the system and the power.  We got new ergonominc chairs at work which cost $1,200 a piece.  Now they are super comfortable but my "old" chair was two years old and also comfortable so what's the logic?  I could have used more money in my paycheck instead.  Chris

We should make a list of all those Mp's or Government officials who have stuck to their guns on issues and been true to themselves and their voters; only to be downtrodden and dumped along the way for non conforming to the mafia like tactics in governments.   That list would be peopled by the true 'people's representatives for government'.  How many folks do we all know who have spoken out aloud and got hammered down for it?  Here in Britain some have been shut up and placed on the backbenches or given an honary knighthood to sit in the House of Lords or just lost the will to fight.  Now that's sad......
I too was sorry to hear of the early and sudden death of Anna Nicole.  God rest her soul and I hope her baby gets well looked after.  Jeanie

(Huge hugs) Hiya hon, k, I owe you an apology I didn't know you had this Journal, otherwise I would of been visiting all along. But guess what I'm here now and not planning on going anywhere soon LOL!! Couldn't agree more with this post. Sounds like the indian reservations as well. So many are desperate to get on the bandwagon to get a piece of the gov's Blood money. They soon forget , the state of the reservation they came from. Another instance of money being allocated to the wrong purpose. It serves only to temporarily distract them from their phlight. I wish they would realize long term help for the reservations would work in their favor so much more. As for a wise honest woman running for a gov. position. They don't because they are wise and honest and see the corrupt nature of the beast before them. (Hugs) missed ya hon. Indigo

WOW that Oingo Boingo lyrics was INTENSE. I loved that. As far as Nancy wanted a Jet, I think her reasons being valid also fit every other outspoken politician out there. Unfortunately, I dont think Nancy's request is reasonable. She should just travel with the high security of safe travel that she is accustomed too. ~Raven
