No More Troops and Give Me a Plane

Screecher of the House Nancy Bella Pelosi has put in a request for her own military aircraft. This is a practice that started after 9/11 to allow the top House leader to travel in relative security. It would seem though, that Bella is pressing her new position into a travel agency to cater to her family and staff.

The sources, who include those in Congress and in the administration, said the Democrat is seeking regular military flights not only for herself and her staff, but also for relatives and for other members of the California delegation. A knowledgeable source called the request “carte blanche for an aircraft any time.”

It is one thing for her to say that she is the Screecher and she needs an airplane to take her around especially since a precedent has been set for that. But this idea of having it available any time she wants to fly and to allow her family and staff the same privilege is absolutely criminal. It is not cheap to fly these things and members of our military can not have a plane when ever they want. They must sign up on a space available basis which means if the plane is going there and there is a seat they can get on. It is also worthy to note that our military members do not fly in luxury. Perhaps though, this is why Bella wants a military aircraft to fly her family and friends:

U.S. Air Force travel for VIPs such as members of Congress is first-rate. The planes are staffed with stewards who serve meals and tend an open bar. Communications suites allow members to conduct business while traveling.
Such flights are one of Congress’ cherished perquisites, providing lawmakers a chance to visit foreign lands at government expense. Official duties are often mixed with sightseeing and fine dining.

This is absolutely criminal and needs to stop. We have bloggers worrying about Ney getting his pension of 29 grand a year and the screecher is going to waste who knows how much in tax dollars flying in style. In case someone did not tell her SHE IS NOT THE PRESIDENT. I think it is criminal that these pious jackasses (and I mean all of them) are treated like royalty on military aircraft when our troops sit in cargo net seats, drink water and eat MREs. [As an aside, Ney earned the pension, unlike the ILLEGALS who can be paid Social Security. Bill Clinton still gets his pension and he was guilty of a crime.]

Bella Pelosi is no one special and the President had better consider this request very carefully. If she deserves a plane based upon 9/11 precedent then fine, but there had better be some tight constraints like no family, limited staff and NO FIRST CLASS BS. Here is a woman who opposes us winning the war, who opposes sending more troops, who opposes any more money for the effort but wants to waste money having the military fly her and her family around like she is the Queen of the country. Absolutely not!

I guess it is obvious that the culture of corruption runs across the aisles, as I have said many times. First she exempts a constituent company from the minimum wage and now she wants to abuse her power and make the military her personal taxi service. It is even more obvious that the jackasses who serve in Congress think they are more important than they really are and they consider themselves the elitist class here to lead we peons around. I also assume this will lay to rest any talk about Pelosi NOT being a San Francisco Liberal elitist. She has demonstrated that she is way out of the mainstream and she definitely considers herself to be among the elite.

Shame on you Bella Pelosi, you overblown windbag. You should have stayed home keeping house because you certainly do not belong in Congress. If I had a say they would send you in a cargo plane with a parachute. If that method of leaving the plane is good enough for the troops, it is good enough for you.

    Guess she is more into flaunting her position than she is working at it. I can not stand her, I think she has some screws messing between the ears. Next thing we know her and Hilliary will be sneaking off for weekends together, sure will make Rosie mad, since she has her eyes on Hilliary, maybe to be the first husband.
