The slime pit known as Washington D.C.
To call Washington D. C. a Den of Thieves would be the understatement of the Millennium.
Please allow me to familiarize you good people with the slimy denizens of D.C., and some of their nest feathering practices while sticking it to us big time.
We will start with Pelosi, whose husband owns $17 million worth of stock of StarKist Tuna, which is owned by Del Monte Foods who is a big contributor to Pelosi.
Starkist is the major employer in American Samoa, employing 75% of the Samoan work force.
In January 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25 Ms. Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than that of its competitors.
Pelosi added a $33 million dollar earmark for an economic development credit in American Samoa, and she called the Bush administration CORRUPT?
Moving right along, another California Democrat, Senator Diane Feinstein despite a blatantly obvious conflict of interest, as “a member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee, Senator Feinstein voted for appropriations worth some $3.7 billion dollars to her husband’s firms.”
The House Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) is earmarking $2 billion dollars related to his son’s lobbying efforts. His son Craig Obey, is “a top lobbyist for a non-profit group which would receive $2 billion dollars worth of the stimulus package.
I could go on but I think you get the idea.
To add insult to injury however, not only do we not get a cost of living allowance (COLA) for the next three years, but these slimy mamzers get a $4,700.00 cost of living raise while we get bupkus, and let’s go a step further, I live on a military pension which is little enough coupled with my social security, I arose this morning and checked my bank balance by phone as I do every morning (a good idea in this age of identity theft) only to find that my automatic deposit is now a lesser amount than it was last month. Not by much grant you, but multiply that by the number of retired military members receiving benefits and that adds up to some serious money. I guess the elite snakes in Washington don’t think we are paying our fair share, (we have already paid our dues you jackasses).
Tim Geithner didn’t pay $34,000.00 which he owed (and he is secretary of the treasury) so why should we have to pay?
Charlie Rangel overlooked $75,000.00 worth of income, and he is the snake that writes our tax laws, if he didn’t pay why should we have to pay?
Tom Daschle owed $140,000.00 which he sort of overlooked, if he didn’t pay why should we have to pay? Are you happy with the change some of you voted for?
The usurper in chief is not only not up to the job, he has no clue what the hell he is doing and the inept clowns he has surrounded himself with don’t have a clue either. A good example is his little speech about the almost Delta disaster all he can do is look very stern and say something stupid like “This is totally unacceptable”. Okay it is unacceptable, we know that, the question is what the hell are you going to do about it?
