    You can't cry "wolf" in a crowded theater...

    I'm starting a collection of Nancy Pelosi gaffs...This is the most recent.


    "The Constitution does not say that a person can yell 'wolf' in a crowded theater," Pelosi told KRON4's Pam Moore. "If you are endangering people, you don't have a constitutional right to do that."

    One of the funniest things to come to light from her raising the devil about Confederate statues is that her Daddy helped dedicate a statue to Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson in Baltimore, Maryland in 1948. Her Dad, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., was mayor of Baltimore at the time. That woman is a real piece of work.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017...-monument.html

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has ramped up calls to remove "reprehensible" Confederate statues from the halls of Congress -- but left unsaid in her public denunciations is that her father helped dedicate such a statue decades ago while mayor of Baltimore.

    It was May 2, 1948, when, according to a Baltimore Sun article from that day, “3,000” looked on as then-Governor William Preston Lane Jr. and Pelosi’s father, the late Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., spoke at the dedication of a monument to honor Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

    The article said Lane delivered a speech, and Mayor D’Alesandro “accepted” the memorial.

    “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions,” D’Alesandro said in his dedication. “We must remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for the other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations.”

    He added: “In these days of uncertainty and turmoil, Americans must emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.”

    But can you yell "sheep"?
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    No one wants to pay homage to the elitist royalty of our society?

    Imagine that.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Her blabbering makes about as much sense as her hand-gestures.
    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.

    Nancy P. should be a star on the Comedy Channel.

    Mark Twain on royalty. I agree with him.

    The institution of royalty in any form is an insult to the human race.

    He nailed Congress, too!

    All Congresses and Parliaments have a kindly feeling for idiots, and a compassion for them, on account of personal experience and heredity.
