The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

George Washington’s Farewell Address


FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side. The first English florin was issued as a six-shilling gold coin in the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A Silver English florin worth two shillings was first coined in 1849.

$$$$Flying The Speaker's New Jet Plane To California And Back To D.C.$$$$

 Queen Pelosi wasn't happy with the small C-20B Gulfstream III jet that comes with the Speaker's job... OH NO! Queen Pelosi was aggravated that this 'little' jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a big fat, 200-seat, USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to California without stopping! 
I understand that a former Speaker of the House,  Newt Gingrich, flew commercial most of the time.
Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone of what Queen Nancy's big fat jet costs us, the hard working American tax payers, literally thousands of gallons of fuel every week.
Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California every Friday and returns every Monday, at a cost to the taxpayers (YOU and ME are those taxpayers!) of about $60,000, one way!
As Joe put it... "Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday and that costs us another $60,000!" Taxpayers, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to us of $5,760,000!
No wonder she complains about the cost of this war... it might cramp her style and she is styling on my back and yours. I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most corrupt Congress in the history of our country, keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.
Queen Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint. She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires. Who do these people think they are? Their motto is...Don't do as I do... JUST DO AS I SAY!
This is outrageous... forward it to all those on your email list! 
Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include the cost of plane ... just the fuel! One has to wonder what the total package costs us?
And on top of that... now she wants to tax our IRA's & 401k's!
Not to mention the carbon footprint of this woman who supports the climate change hoax!
And the Democrats talk about Sarah's dresses?

Thanks for the follow at my blog, too.
As for Nancy...I thought the Wicked Witch of the West only needed her broomstick to fly.

They Say/We Say said...

Apparently, a more powerful one to carry two hundred friends and family. And what about the $200,000 bar tab she has been running up on the military planes she has hitch-hiked on the last year?
