Almost a grand a week…

…will buy you some top shelf food and booze. Just ask Nancy Pelosi. That was her bill for food and booze and such on her flights of fancy over the last couple of years.

I enjoy a beverage as much as this next fellow, including my beloved Coca-Cola, Jack Daniel’s, Maker’s Mark, to name a few. Similarly and judging by the size of my belly, I don’t miss any meals. At the same time, that’s a lot of chow and drink, especially considering it was during her travel time. Perhaps she was hosting a gaggle of Sumo wrestlers. You never know.

Nonetheless, I am not surprised. Royalty behaves this way. They let the little people pay for their gluttony.

Cheers! And please pass the bon bons.

Liars and Looters!

Geroge Will, who has been known to show amazing insight, penned a great column yesterday. Here is my favorite part:

“Before equating Harry Reid to Henry Clay, understand that buying 60 Senate votes is a process more protracted than difficult. Reid was buying the votes of senators whose understanding of the duties of representation does not rise above looting the nation for local benefits. And Reid had two advantages — the spending, taxing and borrowing powers of the federal leviathan, and an almost gorgeous absence of scruples or principles. Principles are general rules, such as: Nebraska should not be exempt from burdens imposed on the other 49 states.”

The emphasis in BOLD RED is mine.

Let there be no doubt. This so-called healthcare bill is as bogus as the day is long. And not many years from now Americans will be kicking and scratching each other for the FAVORS the government-run system (which will replace the private sector after Congress destroys it with their nonsense) meters out a pittance of the monies collected in taxes, fees, and other extortion-like practices.

Thus, read my novel, Universal Coverage, for a preview of what it’s going to be like. It won’t be pretty.
