Start Your Week Off With A Smile

 

In a final fundraising appeal Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned that the election could be a ‘catastrophe’ for Democrats facing major losses in both chambers of Congress.

In a last-ditch effort to raise funds for Democratic candidates heading into Tuesday’s election, the California congresswoman appealed to the purse strings of liberal voters. Quoting Politico, Mrs. Pelosi said that Republican candidates have raised “millions of dollars of TV advertising time” in districts Democrats easily held in the 2012 election.  

Mrs. Pelosi warns voters that the GOP is poised to have the greatest majority in the House since President Herbert Hoover was in the White House over 80 years ago.

 

The Lying Worthless Political Hack is of course doing this partially to squeeze yet more gelt from gullible liberals.  (With the elections being tomorrow there is no chance that such donations would impact the result.)  However, her prediction as to what the Congress will look like in January looks likely.  We will see tomorrow evening.

  1. Pelosi! I picture her trying to get into the wedding.
    The purple dress with gold tassels is tinged with blood red.
    She is amazed as the King has refused her to enter. “Don’t you know who I am?” “Yes!” is the reply. “Don’t you know who you are?”
    Many are called…yet few are chosen.
    Catholic and pro-choice is a deadly combination. Deadly for All.

  2. That is one of my favorite movie quotes! The injustice in that Arnold never received an Oscar . . . [joking!]

    .

    Get out and vote. [Intsruct the ignorant.] I’m convinced that you won’t be getting into Heaven if you vote Democrat. [Admonish the sinner.] There is my Spiritual Work of Mercy for today.

  3. Nancy Pelosi does not have the intelligence or common sense to accomplish anything worthwhile. She comes from a crooked Baltimore Democrat family and would not last a week in the world if she had to work to support herself.

    The Republican Party’s adherence to wishy washy moderates has long been a source of frustration for me, but Tuesday night should be fun to watch – with the exception of the Pennsylvania governor race. Pennsylvania will elect an Ed $pendell blowhard to the governor’s mansion where he will spend four frustrating years failing to convince a Republican controlled state assembly to increase income taxes.

  4. In response to Mr. Shaw, my understanding of current instruction to us Catholics on this is that its not mortal if you say, vote for a Democrat who you agree with everything else on, but you disagree with them on abortion. I seem to remember reading that it had been stated to be ok…or at least not a mortal sin….if you voted for a Democrat….but NOT because of their stance on life.

    I am a Democrat for many reasons. However, one of them is this….the “liberal” narrative, especially when it comes to issues of social justice and the struggles non white, non male people still go through in the USA….it all makes more sense to me. As a straight white male, the conservative “narrative” on those issues feels too self-congratulatory. Like its saying to me “You are awesome and doing fine. The structure of the world, which just so happens to benefit you a lot, is just and you don’t have to worry so much”. But when I read actual stories from women, the poor, people who are not white, and I see the physical, specific descriptions of their struggles, vs the vague “they are all overreacting” stuff I feel like I see from conservative sources, those conservative sources just feel too silver-tongued, like they are assuring me of my place. Again, its not my only reason for voting that way, but do I feel that way.

  5. “I seem to remember reading that it had been stated to be ok…or at least not a mortal sin….if you voted for a Democrat….but NOT because of their stance on life.”

    Which is equivalent to saying that you overlooked Stephen Douglas’ support of slavery in 1860 due to his stance against a National Bank. Abortion is the prime human rights issue of our time and those who lend their political support to those who are perfectly fine with slaying kids in utero are no better than an abortionist working at Planned Parenthood. It is precisely that mentality which leads to a million deaths of the most innocent among us each and every year.

    The left-wing (I refuse to call it liberal) approach is what helps keep the poor downtrodden. I wish for a moment that social justice Catholics would put their emotion aside and see the destruction that their social engineering efforts have wrought in the communities they are trying to help.

    In fact the very use of “narrative” in this discussion is illustrative of the problem. Instead of analyzing the differences in the policy approaches you are concerned about language and feelings. It is time to take stock of whether the economic policies you favor do more harm than good.

  7. I happen to think that the liberal narrative regarding the poor, women, and people who are not white, is factually correct.

  8. I’m always tickled by the “social justice,” dems who can not see the death of 57 million innocents as a social injustice. To me, a nobody, these dems rank up there with Hitler, a true social justice pioneer.

    When you wake up surrounded by the tiny aborted limbs and torsos of 57 million make damn sure that you remember your vote! You might have to live with the vote you cast for eternity.

    After all, Death Judgment Heaven Hell.

    We will all pass on from this life to a next one. You determine the placement. Your choices fit your destination. You are making it everyday. You’ll have no one to blame.

    Choose Wisely!

  9. I happen to think that the liberal narrative regarding the poor, women, and people who are not white, is factually correct.

    First of all, this indicates that you have an entrenched opinion that is not likely to change no matter what counterfactuals you are presented. That’s not unusual – sadly most individuals are like that. More importantly, you insist on discussing “narratives.” Narratives don’t feed the poor.

  10. I’m always tickled by the “social justice,” dems who can not see the death of 57 million innocents as a social injustice.

    What’s 57 million dead children compared to the ability to pass a health care bill that actually makes health care more expensive for millions of people. Because passing that health care bill “felt” like the right thing to do, even if in fact it made things worse. After all, we’re talking about narratives here.

  11. First, the us catholic bishops ok’d the voting strategy I use in “Forming Conscience For faithful citizenship”.
    Also, In terms of how I would argue my position is more than gut intuition, while their are many reasons, one I submit is the video Jessica Williams of The Daily Show made detailing street harassment. While i know some who hear this will dismiss it out of hand because it is the Daily Show, i ask that you only comment on the point made in the video itself, after having watched It. I believe it’s “jessicas feminized atmosphere”

    No, I dismiss it because that might actually be the shallowest rationale I ever heard for supporting leftist policy, and I have heard a lot of shallow arguments in my life. Seriously, if that’s the level of thought you have put into these matters, then all I can say is have a nice day.

  13. To Mr. Zummo,

    No, as stated, the video was not my only reason. I Simply included as 1 example. Its one example of the Callous disregard given to women. Also, I am curious About peoples specific responses To the video, particularly, the disregard shown by Fox, and how hard the women have to work to avoid comments.

  14. Dear Watcher, The program of the Left is all about coercion. Eventually, there will be no limits to extent of it. History!
