Pelosi's Pork Problem


online.wsj.com

Picture a freight train roaring down the tracks. Picture House Speaker Nancy Pelosi positioning her party on the rails. Picture a growing stream of nervous souls diving for the weeds. Picture all this, and you've got a sense of the Democrats' earmark-corruption problem.

This particular choo-choo has the name John Murtha emblazoned on the side, and with each chug is proving that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. Republicans got tossed in 2006 in part for failing to police the earmarks at the center of the Jack Abramoff and other corruption scandals. Mrs. Pelosi is today lea

The PMA scandal could make Abramoff look like a piker.

It seems the time is right for some type of scandal, we've been long overdue.

With her recent accusations against the CIA, Pelosi has been trying to put the spotlight on others to draw attention away from herself.
Now it's becoming obvious her actions have been nothing more than a smoke screen because of the stuff that may be getting ready to hit the fan.

Hold on Nancy, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

THey are all equally corrupt and the whole lot of them need to be put in prison (or at least 95% of them). Earmarks are pure corruption the semantics make it sound more benign but make no mistake it is a favor being paid to someone with tax payer dollars.

Real change cannot happen until all Democrats and Republicans are removed from office. This little shell game called American Politics takes two parties, each of them as corrupt as the other, in order to continue the Status Quo. They help themselves to whatever riches they can find and to hell with the rest of us.

ONLY A THOROUGH HOUSECLEANING CAN SAVE US. Anything less will not do the job. We need Citizen Statesmen in Washington, not lifelong leeches slopping at the public trough until they keel over from sheer gluttony.

Just for the sake of personal consistency I would like to call for all of our kind members and casual lurkers to recognize that there is no 'they' relative to Democrat or Republican.

They are all the same party. They will all act as directed by the same sorry ideologues who bring us institutions like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission.

They are all the same party.

Any effort to confabulate some rationale to claim otherwise is a sorry demonstration of either underestimating the intelligence of the people, or being supremely naive and ignorant of reality.
