I get a blast from this;

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?




American Samoa is pee'd off and they've been going to the UN Decolonization Committee being very vocal against America.

American Samoa was robbed. They are poor people and used their little bit of money to buy cheap right hand drive Japanese vehicles. We forced them to buy Left hand drive American vehicles. They have little money...they were suckered into buying overpriced American vehicles and stuck with debt....as the Tuna Cannery jobs disappeared.

Certain politicians sucked American Samoa DRY....don't be surprised if they turn coat and side with China.

Which is what Congress wants to justify a new Cold War. They've been sucking countries dry and hoping they side with China.

Our military is cut to NOTHING....the Air Force is going to have to fire 5,000 civilians and release thousands of GI's from their enlistment contracts and give them the boot.

If Congress doesn't get a new Cold War going, it's the end of the Empire. If they can line their pockets with Billions ripping off all these countries in the process....why not??

It's not like the average American cares or is smart enough to realize millions will soon die when Karma comes back around and results in War. The rich get richer...the poor will gladly die to keep the robbing going on.

sorry about that...I'll just delete it.
I'm no fan of Pelosi, and I am so glad that her corruption is being exposed.

As I said in the other thread about this nonsense, this is the kind of stuff that earns you a trip to the gallows

How about she goes to prison like Martha Stewart. However, if she does not, she will likely not see her treasures in heaven.

Its not just her. All of them.

Prison is too kind. Corruption in government should be akin to treason, and should be treated as such.

Hey, I just wanted to say, I love you.


edit- Oh, to the person who said Pelosi should just go to jail, keep in mind jail would be a HUGE upgrade for the people working in the factories in American Samoa, the same ones Pelosi and her hubby support. See the video I posted about American Somoa on the first page.... are you sure we need that witch's vibes in our world? Burn her at the stake, if we did that, I'm sure we would not have slave labor supporting profiteers in our government for many many years to come

Wow, that is really something considering she is a member of DSA(that is Democratic Socialists of America) and espouses all things socialist, I guess except for where she is personally concerned. But that is what the Elite does. They convince the proletariat of all these ideologies, and then exempt themselves.

Good try Bro but, we already know that politicians are crooked pieces of work.
The real problem is waking up the idiots that time and time again buy the politicians lies.
Some people like being ignorant as ignorance is bliss.
Well, until your children inherit a crooked bankrupt world where they are evicted from their own homes.
Kind of like what we got going on now.
Maybe just enough folks have figured this out and are trying to tell the masses, ala OWS.
Maybe I'm wrong.
But I don't think I am.

Perhaps she should work 20 years in a tuna cannery?

It'd probably improve her odor.

mmmphhhh and I was going to change my post, but maybe I should leave it. I will clarify that another person going to jail does not ultimately bring me happiness, but I believe that she has brought a terrible plight to our country with her heavy handed ways as Speaker and with the agenda she espouses. May the hand of the Divine be just.

I am sharing this stuff with all of my friends and family, and they have all been agreeing with me. The truth is viral. Not everybody has time or interest to research these topics like we have, it's not their fault, they shouldn't have to worry about this level of corruption in the US. The process is underway, I am very hopeful

I hope and pray the truth becomes viral.
I also hope and pray that criminals will be treated as they did in the 1700's.
Hung by the highest trees for all to see.
To be a lifelong criminal is bad, to be a lifelong criminal under the guise of being a good guy is evil.
Those are the ones who should pay dearly.

Pelosi is worth about $30 million & her husbdan is worth even more. Of course if we are talking about real value and not dollars, well then it's going to be a negative number.

Getting mad will not accomplish anything. Yes, I am mad about it but did anyone read the entire article based on the 60 Minute piece? What they are doing is not illegal. Why? Because they write and pass the laws. The wording is such that they are protected. They do not give two doodoo's about ethics so long as they have a middle finger to wave at the general populus. Sure it is disgusting but again they are allowed to do it because of bills that get passed by the very ones that profit from it. The change starts with threads like this and getting the word out as well as demanding that the bill that fights this gets some much needed attention. Is it any wonder why only 6 congressmen and women support it. Not only is the current congressional system turning their backs on saving this Country, its a clique that is desgned to scratch each others backs!

Update:

CNN reports on Pelosi and others response to the this 'soft' corruption:
www.cnn.com...

Notice how she deflects on the issue, does not address her actual trading of the stock, and tries to play the 'its a right-wing smear job' meme. FAIL Pelosi, your all corrupt and that right wing smear targeted players on both sides of the aisle.

They exempt themselves from insider trading, they exempt themselves from the healthcare plan they wish to force on us, laws for thee and not for me mentality....

Hate to burst your bubble, but insider trading is perfectly legal for these crooks.
Yep. They passed laws allowing them to bhe free from any prosecution over insider trading.
I have been saying this ever since I joined here.
They can be ethically "charged", but that is not a crime, and they get nothing more than a stern "talking to".

This is all political smoke.
Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING will be done .

"Congress has never done more for consumers nor has the Congress passed more critical reforms of the credit card industry than under the Speakership of Nancy Pelosi," Pelosi spokesman, Drew Hammill, said in a statement soon after the report aired Sunday night.



yes of course !

trouble is, what they've done for TO consumers is all negative.

the "critical reforms of the credit card industry " have actually hurt consumers and helped the "industry".

Congress has not passed any legislation that has a positive long lasting impact on the majority of Americans.

It's all for them and none for most.
