If you think America is a sane and decent country you have to remember that enough, apparently sane and decent, people in California actually vote Maxine Waters & Nancy Pelosi into Congress.
And have done since 1991 & 1988 respectively.
That is the best part of thirty-years in believing that this represents their best interests. After reading this you will probably have a better understanding how a businessman with no political experience can become President of the United States.
The incompetence and dangerous rhetoric of American Democrats.
During the LA Riots of 1992, Waters practically justified, if not outright defended, the rioting, pillaging, and looting which took place:
“If you call it a riot, it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.
According to Waters dragging a truck driver out of his cab and beating him into a coma is legitimate social protest.
In the late 2000s, Waters commented on the solvency of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the investment banks that caused the collapse of the world’s financial system in 2008.
‘We do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and particularly Fannie Mae, under the outstanding leadership of Frank Raines.’
What guarantees are you going to give this liberal about how that will reduce the cost of gasoline at the pump if we let you drill where you say you want to drill. . .And guess what this liberal will be all about. This liberal will be all about socializ. . . will be about . . .basically taking over and the government running all your companies. Uh Uh Uh. . .
‘I was amazed. I really was. I didn’t say anything to anybody. I just watched-the Republicans were out there-they were having a great time. They were laughing, they were waving the American flag, they were egging them on, and I thought that was outrageous behavior. I really did.’
‘Conservative values have failed. I think that weak people are preyed upon. . . but I think that they [conservative talk radio] have failed’
On fellow Congressmen
‘I am encouraged more by what happened with Republicans yesterday—they had been mislead by Senator Cruz. I understood that they referred to him as a snake-oil salesman.’
‘I saw pictures of Boehner and Cantor on our screens. Don’t ever let me see again in life those Republicans in our hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are demons.’
On American citizens
‘And that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.’
‘It was just everywhere, and as I traveled across the country I saw entire towns that were cracked out. I mean, everybody was on crack.’
Nancy Pelosi is equally nuts
‘Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs.’
‘But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it. Away from the fog of the controversy.”
‘America must be a light to the world, not just a missile.’
I have absolutely no regret about my vote against this war. The same questions remain. The cost in human lives, the cost to our budget, probably 100 billion. We could have probably brought down that statue for a lot less.’
