    Pelosi, Pickens plan to pick your pocket

    My favorite part of the article...

    According to the investigation, "Nancy Pelosi Purchased between $50,000-$100,000 in CLNE stock on May 25, 2007, apparently on its initial public offering."

    Now the California representative stands to make a large profit on her reported 22,000 shares of CLNE if she and other public figures can persuade the people of California to vote for Proposition 10 in the name of renewable energy and clean, alternative fuels.

    According to the article Pelosi is one of the richest members of Congress and that her wealth comes primarily from investments. Just because she stands to profit from yet another investment seems a bit trivial to me.

    Yet the left has gone on and on about Bush and Cheney's investments. Investments they do not even control, they are in blind trusts. Yup usual song and dance by the left.

    No doubt! That's just plain hypocritical to say Pelosi's investments don't matter. I guess what he is saying is that the same rules don't apply for Democrats and Republicans... Shocker!

    The only one picking our pocket is Big Oil.

    How much does it cost to fill up your Hummer?

    Not irrelevant at all. In fact it is the most important issue facing America today.....the high cost of foreign oil. To attack Pickens or Pelosi for investing in clean energy is the height of stupidity for that reason.

    How did you get to be a moderator anyway?

    How'd YOU get to be such a fucking moron, asshat? Pelosi isn't being attacked for WHAT she's investing in. She's being attacked for being just as wealthy as any Republican/conservative from playing the same game they do while decrying them for it.

    You might get that if your head wasn't so far up your ass it'd take you a weak to dig to daylight.

    Oh btw, Einstein, while you're displaying your obviously superior intelligence, please take fucking note that it says "Administrator", not "Moderator" in my tagline.

    Next time you come snapping at MY heels puppy, be sure and collect your balls out of that jar where Momma keeps them on the mantle, huh?
