Madame Pelosi's 757
This Jet is the USAF C-32, Boeing 757, which MADAME PELOSI uses
A retired Pan Am, ex Delta pilot, who is supplementing his meager "delta" retirement at the age of 70+ as a simulator instructor in South Florida. He does recurrent training for the Air Force pilots that have to fly Pelosi's Jet, (see below), he told me last week, that the last Pelosi Pilots he had in the Sim told him that they now have to "Salute" her... Pelosi's Jet
Madame Pelosi wasn't happy with the small jet USAF C-20B, Gulfstream III, that comes with the Speaker's job...no, Madame 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!
Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone that Nancy's Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American tax payers, 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, cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000, one way! As Joe put it, 'Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday night.' Cost to us another $60,000.
Folks, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers 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 do-nothing Congress in the history of this country, keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.
Madame 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.
If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list! Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include cost of plane or crew, just fuel!
One wonders what her total package cost us?

Re: "Cowardice in State Government" by Russell D. Longcore
I detect a bit of despair in Russell Longcore's article. For example, "But where is the state legislature and Governor that will notify Washington that there is a new "nullification sheriff" in town?"
Politicians at the state level (actually, at all levels) are indeed gutless. But this should not be a source of despair. We will not be saved from national politicians by putting our faith in state politicians.
Well, then, what is the solution? What good, if any, are these 10th Amendment pushes at state level?
I don't look for state governments to lead us to freedomthat is of course, absurd. I look for state governments to do what they always have done, and that is, to *follow*. They follow the general opinions of people in the states, more or less. Whatever keeps getting them re-elected.
When we finally dump D.C., it will be because enough individuals have withdrawn their sanction from the federal government, not because state governments have led us there. The state politicians will be scrambling to get in front of that parade. And by that time, their own legitimacy will also be on shaky ground.
10th Amendment resolutions certainly are wonderful, not because we can expect state politicians to finally do the right thing, but as a general indicator of unrest and disgust in the country. Things are proceeding nicely, Russell.
Re: "A Prophecy" by Rocky Frisco
Rocky Frisco may well be correct in the first part of his prediction: that Obama will be knocked off by the ruling class in a false-flag operation (aka "Hegelian event").
I think the intention will be as he suggests, but I don't believe it will work. Most Americans will have a "ho-hum" response. "Obama, just another worthless politician; who needs him?" Being brown only gets him so far, and that is not very far these days despite the silliness government schools try to inculcate into defenseless children.
No, this power-play by the ruling scum will not go anywhere. This is not "Camelot" any more. And the people least impressed by Obama worship are the very ones with all the guns.
Even the Kennedy murder may have turned into a net negative for the ruling class, by now. Consider how many think government was behind it.
