    In her latest stunning declaration, San Francisco socialist Nancy Pelosi told the Steelworkers Union on Monday, that we need to address the disparity in “ownership and equity” in the United States.

    How much of your vast personal fortune have you given away to those less fortunate, Nancy?

    None?

    Oh. STFU, then.

    LOL!

    You have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA how many self-identifying liberal SCIONS (read trust-fund check-cashing fellow --but very wealthy-- hippies) I know that I have completely alienated by asking them the same thing, Daveman.

    Really given who I am, and what I do for a living (I am a mendicant for a not for profit educational corporation) I am TRULY a damned fool.

    But your point is more than valid.

    BULLSHIT liberalism is even more annoying to me than over the top converatism.

    AL LEAST the heartless conservatives (the Randians, extreme Libertarians and so forth) aren't freaking hypocrites.

    I'm a little dissapointed that Nancy is not in a fight like reid. Though I will give her credit for building the tea party and helping republicans with this retardation.
    Democrats must like being in the minority.

    Everyone is entitled to "ownership and equity," right?

    Liberals' contribution to "ownership and equity" was subprime mortgages.

    It only succeeded in fucking homeowners out of both "ownership and equity."

    Along with this is the fact that U.S. federal employees making up an increasingly bloated bureaucracy are among the highest in the world and enjoy the best benefits and retirement plans to die for. Because of this, this past week Washington DC rents surpassed NYC as the priciest in the nation despite having some of the nation's poorest citizens and some of the nation's crappiest schools.

    Does seem to be out o balance doesn't it? Let's support Speaker Pelosi and start dealing with the problem beginning with Congress and the federal bureaucracy.

    This was written in 2005. Not only was it prophetic, it also pointed the finger at the source of the policies that you wrongly accredit to liberals. People like you own this debacle, this is the man that you supported.

    Bush Profiteering from Housing Defaults by James Bovard

    Homeownership is more than just a symbol of the American dream; it is an important part of our way of life. Core American values of individuality, thrift, responsibility, and self-reliance are embodied in homeownership.
    In Bush’s eyes, self-reliance is so wonderful that the government should subsidize it.

    Bush could be exposing taxpayers to tens of billions of dollars of losses, luring thousands of low- and moderate-income people to the heartbreak of losing their first house, and risking wrecking entire neighborhoods. Bush’s housing initiatives – especially his “American Dream Down Payment Act” to give free down payments to selected home buyers – were key planks in his reelection campaign. He is also pushing Congress to enact a law to permit the feds to give zero-down-payment mortgages.

    The Bush “Dream Act” and the zero-down-payment plan are modeled after “down-payment assistance programs” that have proliferated in recent years. These programs, often engineered by nonprofit groups, routinely involve a home builder giving a “gift” to the nonprofit, which provides a home buyer with money for the down payment. The price of the house is sometimes increased by the same amount as the builder’s “gift.” Almost all the mortgages created with down-payment assistance end up being underwritten or guaranteed by either the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or Ginnie Mae (the Government National Mortgage Association).

    Ah, Bush was no conservative. Now there's a headline.

    I make a 5 figure income and I bet i've donated more of my money to charities than she has. I bet i've also volunteered more of my free time for community services than she has too.


    She is an astroturf hypocrite.
