Bloviating Zeppelin: Ethical Nancy Pelosi

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Ethical Nancy Pelosi

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already been caught in an ethical conflict (see my post here) in re Starkist Tuna.

But wait; there's more in terms of Pelosi and her guarantee to all America that the Democrat-majority Congress will be THE MOST ETHICAL in all history:

A database company that has showered money on Bill and Hillary Clinton – and is alleged to have aided scam artists – now appears to have close links to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's family as well.

The firm InfoUSA, headed by major Clinton backer Vinod Gupta, has placed Pelosi's son, Paul Pelosi Jr., on its payroll – even though he has no experience in the company's main business activities, NewsMax has learned.

As NewsMax previously reported, InfoUSA repeatedly rented marketing databases to unscrupulous persons who used the information to defraud the unsuspecting elderly, investigators found.

The company is also under fire in a shareholder lawsuit which alleges that Gupta is appropriating company funds for personal use and his political pet projects. Shareholder critics are furious that Gupta had InfoUsa pay former President Bill Clinton $2.1 million in "consulting fees" since he left the White House, with another $1.2 million promised.

What? you ask.

You mean that the Democrats are dissolving before our very eyes, their ethics continuously compromised in as little as the first few months of their so-called "rule"?

That would be a resounding: yes.

Their ethics are in the toilet.

-- Guess what, Democrats?
-- You're ALREADY pushing the US electorate squarely back into the GOP camp.
-- So for that, you have my most humble thanks.
-- Keep up the good work!

Ain't it true! The GOP needs to take ADVANTAGE of these placement and statements!

I'm not ready to start counting new seats yet, but the Donks are really pushing in that direction. Of course the MSM will do everything they can to hide these little indiscretions.

Shoprat: and hide them they WILL whenever possible!

Isn't it awfully early to even THINK about this kind of thing?

Yeah BZ, they should but they won't, the dumbasses blew it when they had EVERYTHING, the White House, Senate, Congress and SCOTUS, why should we expect em to take advantage of the Dems now?? They haven't become ANY smarter, in fact, they may have slipped a bit...

Fred: I fear you may correct. Which is why I think it may actually be the PRIME TIME for a THIRD PARTY. I despise thinking this; what else are True Conseratives to do?

Problem is, BZ, a third party never has done anything but draw votes away from the GOP. Let's hope that things change and the GOP gets a backbone! Regardless of my slowing down on posting, I still care.

As far as the Dem's ethics being in the toilet, first they would have to have some. I don't think they even know the meaning of "ethics".

This is *not* a '50/50' Nation and zero-sum game with respect to elections. As a bare majority actually *vote* the best you get is a 30/30 Nation split between R and D and 40% not voting as disenfranchised from the two-party system. Take out, from that last, the prennially disaffected, historically at 5-10% and you then wind up with a 30/30/30/10 Nation, with that lest 10% unwilling to vote for anyone for any reason. The front two are the two parties.

Who is addressing that last 30% who feel that the two party system has disenfrnachised them to the point of voting not at all because they have no voice.

To posit that they ARE permanently disaffected means that we are now in permanent plurality rule, Balkanization and heading to no good end. That is what the meme of 'a 3rd party pulling from one of the other 2 is the only result'. It is only the result if you ACT like the other two parties, which is all we have SEEN from 3rd party candidates, no matter what their platform.

What is happening to the Republicans is a harsh set of fissures opening up that are decohering the party. Corporationists, fiscal conservatives, social conservatives, big government supporters and national security blocs are finding that you can combine two blocs and automatically marginalize the others. The Corporationists and Big Government Republicans are what we call RINOs: able to get funding, backing and make themselves 'necessary' to the party although they undermine the others. Leave those out and you get a NASA base: choose two out of three. And as 40% of the funding basis is split three ways without the Big Government and Corporate backers, you are then looking at a small amount to get in the money realm, even though numbers of individuals are majority, taken as a whole.

National security once had strong backing in the Nation, before the Democrats marginalized it and those backers from their party. They became the Left/liberal and now just the Left. The money in the Republican party is marginalizing the conservatives and national security parts. That leaves us with two Big Government parties, one of the Leftist and rich Elite and one on the Right with Corporations.

And that other 30% that never gets addressed? That see the dream of liberty being diminished and are told by the two parties that it is the parties that will decide for the Nation and not the People?

Reagan brought in a fraction of them for him for his message, but that is not long term backing for the Republican Party, but support for a man. These people have been so abused by the two party system that they have no faith IN IT.

There is NO Nationalist Party that stands up FOR the Nation as a whole and cannot separate that from the economic drumbeat of the Left and Right. Free people have the right to make use of any economic system that works for them and allows the greatest amount of liberty so that individuals can profit by their work and do good with such proceeds. Capitalism is one such system, but it did not spring from freedom and can exist in non-free capitalist societies. Free People can create whatever system suits them best and use it until they are abused BY IT. Ideas and ideals of being free and having democracy came far before capitalism and will, with any luck, last far past it.

But the ideal of a Free People having a Nation in common so that they each may live good lives and where government is neither a good nor ill, but a backstop to ensure that tyranny is kept in check?

I don't see that party around anywhere.

It seems like electing them in was a good thing for the 2008 Republican hopes. How abouyt Fienstein and her little "issues"> Makes Randy "Duke" Cunnigham look like small potatoes, and yet nothing has been done.

Jenn: because, of course, the MSM is in the Dem pocket. It's a "given."
