    Subject: USAF TOOK NANCY'S JET AWAY.....



    FINALLY SOME GOOD NEWS FROM WASHINGTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    USAF TOOK NANCY 'S JET AWAY
    (verified by Snopes)
    The real reason that Nancy Pelosi is considering retiring is that they took her Jet away.

    As a result of a Judicial Watch filing under the Freedom of Information Act, the USAF released documents detailing House Speaker Pelosi's use of United States Air 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 USAF. Keep in mind that all the data below relate to United States Air Force aircraft used by one woman over a sixteen month period.

    Several of these flights included Ms. Pelosi's guests, such as grown children, grandchildren, various in-laws, friends and hangers-on. Over 95% of the trips were between the west coast and Washington , DC , for what you might call a commute between home and the office. READ it and WEEP!!

    Total trips: 85 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 hours per trip.
    Cost to the taxpayers: $2,100,744, or $27,715 per trip, or $1,285,162 per year!
    Cost of in flight food and alcohol: $101,429; $1,193 per trip; $62,051 per year.

    On one junket to Baghdad, according to the Air Force report, she had the aircraft bar stocked with Johnny Walker Red Scotch, Grey Goose Vodka, E&J Brandy, Bailey's Irish Cream, Maker's Mark Whiskey, Courvoisier Cognac, Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Whiskey, Beefeater Gin, Dewar's 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 American! 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.

    Even though she can no longer abuse the USAF, she can either fly on her broom, or fly Southwest Airlines, where bags fly free.

    I truly hope you are not making a political statement here. If we knew 1/1000th of what R/D spend on crap there would be rioting in the streets.

    As conservatives, most of us despise Nancy. However, anyone who thinks all sorts of other "public servants" of all politcal persuasions aren't playing taxpayers for suckers is delusional. We have royalty in the U.S.

    But it sure is easier to turn things into an attack and call her "Nazi" Pelosi. LOL, boy that's rich!

    I owe you a kiss. Can I have Sophia Vergara deliver it for me? I'm rather tied up right now.

    Excellent post.

    If a perk for my chosen career was jet flights to anywhere, well then I would be anywhere.

    Yes. Because.

    Do your own looking, with unbiased eyes.

    Because of what? You assume I'm biased?

    Certainly meant as an anecdotal post, for sure.

    I don't like Pelosi, but then, I don't like many other politicians either.

    Except for Maker's, she has pretty pedestrian taste in whiskey. Beer as well. She's at that level, she can afford anything and she drinks Mexican ditch water?

    Spot on. Let's choose this villain...

    If someone wants to make the case that her abuses are worse than others, they should use those data. I will not be surprised either way, but you need data.
