Fwd: FW: Nancy's jet is gone!

This RWFD: is an updated version of this submission already in the archive.

Nancy's jet is gone!
It's Gone, gone, gone never to return.
Well, looks like the old broad of the House will have to pay her own way
back and forth to California (mexifornia).
The Air Force took her jet away from her.
Read the article below.

The real reason that Nancy Pelosi is considering retiring is that they took
her Jet away. Ah, poor baby!
As a result of a Judicial Watch filing under the Freedom of Information
Act, the USAF released documents detailing House Speaker Pelosi's use of
United States Air Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010.
The data are published in the Judicial Watch Verdict of December 2010,
Volume 16, Issue 12.
Here are the main highlights revealed by the USAF. Keep in mind that all
the data below relate to United States Air Force aircraft used by one woman
over a sixteen month period.
Several of these flights included Ms. Pelosi's guests, such as grown
children, grandchildren, various in-laws, friends and hangers-on. Over 95%
of the trips were between the west coast and Washington DC , for what you
might call a commute between home and the office.

READ it and WEEP!!
Total trips: 85 over a 68 week period, or 1.25 average trips per week.
Total mileage: 206,264 miles, or 2,427 average miles per trip.
Total flying time: 428.6 hours, or an average of 5 hours per trip.

Cost to the taxpayers: $2,100,744, or $27,715 per trip, or $1,285,162 per

Cost of in flight food and alcohol: $101,429; $1,193 per trip; $62,051 per

On one junket to Baghdad, according to the Air Force report, she had the
aircraft bar stocked with 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, Dewar's Scotch, Bombay
Sapphire Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Corona Beer and several varieties of
This was obviously a very important "gubment bidness" trip.
Evidence generally speaks for itself, and in Ms. Pelosi's case it speaks
the language of abuse and (evidently) a serious familial drinking problem,
for in a single year she and her spawn drank an amount in excess of the net
income of the average employed American!
When she said, "... If the stimulus doesn't pass, five hundred million
people might lose their jobs...", I thought she was unintentionally
revealing her ignorance.
I'm now more inclined to think she was pickled.
Even though she can no longer abuse the USAF, she can either fly on her
broom, or fly Southwest Airlines, where bags fly free.
If you are an AMERICAN citizen it is YOUR DUTY to PASS THIS ON!!
Because, you won't see this reported on MSNBC.

It's sad to see "Verified by Snopes!" turn into a conservative red flag for "I did no research on this, not even on Snopes."

OMG what is with "gubment bidness", or gubmint etc...

Why? Why do they all do that? It drives me freaking mad!

Because there is nothing today's conservatives hate more than a strong federal government. Rule of law is anathema to rogue capitalism, don't you know.

So they disparage it by calling it 'gubment'.

I have noticed that they're not too keen on democracy, either.

I'm no fan of Nancy Pelosi, but stick to the facts. Seriously, Pelosi can legitmately be blasted on a bunch of REAL issues.

I have to draw the line at fictional bullshit that's made up and pumped out by rightwing think tanks.

That's what puzzles me a little. Why do these rightwing think tanks just make up clearly ridiculous crap? Why not use factual, real information?

Although this is mostly all a lie about Pelosi's alleged overspending on trips, etc, just as many Republicans can be cited for spending US tax dollars on junkets & trips to various places.

Of course, those are never mentioned in RWFs. Why not? If rightwingers are so outraged by how their tax dollars are (mis)spent, then why aren't they questioning Republicans as well as Democrats?

I know: rhetorical question.

To Anon about the derogatory use of "gubment:" Why? Because the facist corporations who have taken over the USA gin up hatred in their low-info voter masses for the federal government based on all of the abject lies, bullshit, hype and spin we see here.


Because it causes these numbskulls to then "hate" the US federal government, other than the sacred Military & the Security Surveillance State, of course.

Then it makes it easier to privatize everything, which allegedly makes everything both "cheaper" and "more efficient" - both LIES of epic proportions of course.

But enables a more direct syphoning of US tax dollars directly into the pockets of the 1%.

Got it?
