Wonder what you would find if you frisked Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s thoughts on her party’s historic loss last November?

Answer: It’s all Bush’s fault…

🙄 Honestly, what planet does she live on? Hint: It’s not Earth.

FOX Nation has the transcript:

“We still would have lost the election because we had 9.5% unemployment. Let’s take it where that came from. The policies of George W. Bush and the Republican support for his initiatives, tax cuts are for the wealth, recklessness by some,” Minority Leader Pelosi told CNN.

Keep dreaming Minority Leader Pelosi… Although President Bush is partly responsible, it was Nancy Pelosi who clearly lacked common sense, accountability, fiscal responsibility, and constitutional principles during the last four years she was in power. After all, she was forced to relocate to a smaller office after running up a huge tab at the taxpayers’ expense:

In the 1,461 days that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) served as speaker of the House, the national debt increased by a total of $5.343 trillion ($5,343,452,800,321.37) or $3.66 billion per day ($3.657,394,113.84), according to official debt numbers published by the U.S. Treasury.

Pelosi was the 52nd speaker of the House. During her tenure, she amassed more debt than the first 49 speakers combined.

When Pelosi was sworn in on Jan. 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8,670,596,242,973.04. At the close of business on Jan. 4, 2011, her last full day in the speakership, it stood at 14,014,049,043,294.41–an increase of $5,343,452,800,321.37.

…And this is the same lady that said a few days ago, “Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go.” Unfortunately for our country, Rep. Pelosi has been an absolutely failure.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the brand new Facebook Profile layout?

Answer: You can do some creative grassroots advertising with it!

Last month, Facebook unveiled its new profile page layout to the world. As usual, it took me some time to get used to it, but I eventually made the switch to the new layout when I realized I could be more creative with it.

Before the new look, I would always customize my profile pictures to include miniature campaign signs for the political candidates I supported during the 2010 midterm elections.  For me, it was similar to putting a bumper sticker on my car.

After looking at a few creative ideas from other individuals, I decided that this new Facebook profile layout could allow people to express their political views more loudly and I am definitely taking advantage of that. As you can see from above, I am staunchly against President Obama’s health care overhaul and want it repealed immediately.

In the future, I plan on using the five photo spaces to advertise my choices for the presidency and candidates for the U.S. Senate.

If you would like the “Repeal & Replace Obama-Care” design displayed above for your own Facebook profile, here are the images: Photo 1 | Photo 2 | Photo 3 | Photo 4 | Photo 5 … Enjoy!

Remember: In order for the photos to show up in order, upload each photo (starting with photo 5) separately and tag yourself.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked The Grand Rapids Education Association?

Answer: They are going after their own members that have refused to pay their dues!

Big Government reports:

The Grand Rapids Education Association, a local affiliate of Michigan’s largest teachers’ union, is attempting to pick off one-by-one 90-some members that have refused to pay their dues.

About 18 months ago, the school board voted to no longer deduct dues from employees’ paychecks, which meant union members had to physically write a check to the union.  Many saw it as their opportunity to protest the obnoxious behavior of union leaders during a previous contract negotiation period.  The union president, Paul Helder, was particularly pompous during negotiations, claiming the union was fighting a “war on terrorism.”  He even established “War Time Committees” to organize the fight against the school board and administrators.

Marjorie Hayward objected to her president’s behavior and refused to pay up.  So the union took her to small claims court.

The judge, citing the fact that Michigan is not a right-to-work state, ruled she has to fork over the money, regardless of whether or not the union is representing her interests.

Let that marinate for a bit – because of current Michigan law, the union has the right to take a school employee to court and extract money out of her. Isn’t that grand?

If there is ever an opportunity to make Michigan a right-to-work state, this is it.

As a Michigander, this news story hits home for me. For decades, Michigan has suffered from greedy and corrupt organized labor unions, including the Michigan Education Association (MEA). Unfortunately, as mentioned in the article above, Michigan is not a Right-to-Work state and union members can be forced to surrender their hard earned money to corrupt organized labor unions that do not represent their best interests.

I am a strong proponent of Right-to-Work and hope that with our new Republican governor and state legislature we can get something done that will loosen the death grip that organized labor unions have on private and public sector workers.

As for Marjorie Hayward’s case, hopefully this ruling will open the door for the teachers to file a class-action lawsuit against the union. After all, it’s quite clear that the union did not represent their best interests.

As Governor Snyder (R) says, “It’s time to reinvent Michigan.” Let’s hope he means it.
