From Nebraska comes interesting facts.
THE DEFINITION OF A HYPOCRITE
As a result of a Judicial Watch filing under the Freedom of Information A ct, the US A F released documents detailing House Speaker Pelosi’s use of United States A ir Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010. The data are published in the Judicial Watch Verdict of December 2010, Volume 16, Issue 12.
Here are the main highlights revealed by the US A F. Keep in mind that all the data below relate to United States A ir Force aircraft used by one woman over a sixteen month period.
Several of these flights included Ms Pelosi’s guests such as grown children, grand children, various in-laws, friends, and hangers-on. Over 95% of the trips were between the west coast and Washington , DC or what we might call a commute between home and the office.
Total trips: 85 trips over a 68 week period or 1.25 average trips per week.
Total mileage: 206,264 miles or 2,427 average miles per trip.
Total flying time: 428.6 hours or an average of 5 hrs per trip.
Cost to the taxpayers: $2,100,744.59 or $27,715.00 per trip or $1,285,162.00 per year.
Cost of in flight food and alcohol: $101,429.14 or $1,193.00 per trip or $62,051.00 per year.
On one junket to Baghdad, according to the A ir Force report, she had the aircraft bar stocked with John ny Walker Red Scotch, Grey Goose Vodka, E&J Brandy, Bailey’s Irish Creme, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier Cognac, Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Whiskey, Beefeater Gin, Dewars Scotch, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Corona Beer and several varieties of wine. This was obviously a very important “gubment bidness” trip.
Evidence generally speaks for itself, and in Ms. Pelosi’s case it speaks the language of abuse and (evidently) a serious familial drinking problem, for in a single year she and her spawn drank an amount in excess of the net income of the average employed A merican! When she said, “…if the stimulus doesn’t pass, five hundred million people might lose their jobs…”, I thought she was unintentionally revealing her ignorance. I’m now more inclined to think she was pickled.
Ms Pelosi typifies the ProgLib mindset.
