Order No Rx Cree 1200

House Speaker Pelosi lashes out at antiwar protesters "By character and class consciousness Pelosi is simply reacting to events as the wealthy woman she is. Order no rx cree 1200 If true defiance to the status quo will ever come, order no rx cree 1200 it won’t come from creatures deeply ensconced in privilege as Pelosi and her fellow establishmentarians. Order no rx cree 1200 "   Thomaspaine.com By Patrick Martin \ Dateline: 15 October 2007  Excerpts: "The real venom in Pelosi’s comments was reported by Washington Post Capitol Hill columnist Dana Milbank, order no rx cree 1200 one of those in attendance at the press interview. Order no rx cree 1200 While Pelosi invariably maintains a publicly smiling posture, order no rx cree 1200 he wrote, order no rx cree 1200 “her spirits soured instantly when somebody asked about the anger of the Democratic ‘base’ over her failure to end the war in Iraq.” “Look, order no rx cree 1200” she said, order no rx cree 1200 “I had, order no rx cree 1200 for five months, order no rx cree 1200 people sitting outside my home, order no rx cree 1200 going into my garden in San Francisco, order no rx cree 1200 angering neighbors, order no rx cree 1200 hanging their clothes from trees, order no rx cree 1200 building all kinds of things—Buddhas? I don’t know what they were—couches, order no rx cree 1200 sofas, order no rx cree 1200 chairs, order no rx cree 1200 permanent living facilities on my front sidewalk.” Pelosi continued: “If they were poor and they were sleeping on my sidewalk, order no rx cree 1200 they would be arrested for loitering, order no rx cree 1200 but because they have ‘Impeach Bush’ across their chest, order no rx cree 1200 it’s the First Amendment.” Pelosi is married to a multimillionaire investor, order no rx cree 1200 and her comments were charged with social resentment as well as political hostility. Order no rx cree 1200 The antiwar protesters are not only unwelcome because they expose her hypocritical pretense to opposing the Iraq bloodbath—they are dirty, order no rx cree 1200 ragged and disreputable, order no rx cree 1200 and irritate the neighbors. Pelosi’s remark—imagine that riffraff “sleeping on my sidewalk”—is reveals the enormous social distance between the masses of working people, order no rx cree 1200 housewives, order no rx cree 1200 students who oppose the war, order no rx cree 1200 and the privileged ruling elite. Order no rx cree 1200 And her disparaging reference to the First Amendment demonstrates the hostility of a big business politician towards the democratic rights of the working class. In elaborating on this comment, order no rx cree 1200 Pelosi tried to backtrack from her spontaneous display of her real attitude towards antiwar activists. Order no rx cree 1200 “They are advocates, order no rx cree 1200” she said. Order no rx cree 1200 “We are leaders.” And “leaders, order no rx cree 1200” of course, order no rx cree 1200 have to be practical. Order no rx cree 1200 “We have to make responsible decisions in the Congress that are not driven by the dissatisfaction of anybody who wants the war to end tomorrow, order no rx cree 1200” Pelosi continued. Order no rx cree 1200 “The war has eclipsed everything, order no rx cree 1200” said. Order no rx cree 1200 “And while I am very proud of the ratings that Democrats have on every issue you can name, order no rx cree 1200 I don’t disagree with the public evaluation that we have not done well in ending this war.” The Democratic leader rebuked those antiwar activists who have begun to recognize that congressional Democrats, order no rx cree 1200 not merely the Republicans, order no rx cree 1200 are opposed to ending the war. “I think it is a waste of time for them to go after Democratic members, order no rx cree 1200” Pelosi argued. Order no rx cree 1200 “They ought to just persuade Republican members who are representing areas that are opposed to the war.” Pelosi herself faces such a challenge. Order no rx cree 1200 Antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan has announced that she would run as an independent candidate for Congress against Pelosi next year, order no rx cree 1200 because of the decision by Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last May to push through an emergency funding bill to finance the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Democrats could not be fairly accused of failing to carry out their electoral mandate, order no rx cree 1200 Pelosi claimed: “We said we would change the debate; we would fight to end the war. Order no rx cree 1200 We never said we had the veto pen or the signature pen.” She concluded with the claim, order no rx cree 1200 incessantly repeated by the congressional Democratic leadership, order no rx cree 1200 that it is White House veto power and filibusters by Senate Republicans which have blocked any change in Iraq war policy. “It is clear now that the Senate is not going to be able to do much to overcome the 60- vote barrier that would send a bill to the president’s desk, order no rx cree 1200” Pelosi said. Order no rx cree 1200 “But that does not mean the House will not move to … responsible, order no rx cree 1200 safe redeployment of our troops, order no rx cree 1200 hopefully to end by next year.” This is the “big lie” that the Democratic leadership—with the full support of the media—has sought to use to excuse its own complicity with the war and cover up the fundamental agreement of both parties to continue the military occupation of Iraq indefinitely. Pelosi, order no rx cree 1200 Reid & Co. Order no rx cree 1200 have deliberately refused to take the action that they have within their power, order no rx cree 1200 cutting off funds for the war, order no rx cree 1200 which does not requires a filibuster-proof or veto-proof majority. A simple majority in either house of Congress could have blocked war funding last May. Order no rx cree 1200 But with the Bush administration threatening that critical military operations would have to be curtailed by mid-June if the funding was not approved, order no rx cree 1200 Pelosi and Reid caved in and agreed to push through the emergency appropriations bill." http://www.bestcyrano.org/THOMASPAINE/?p=382#more-382
