What a disgusting human being/regime/8 years of US History
Here are the main highlights revealed by the USAF. Keep in mind that all the data below relate to United States Air Force aircraft used by one woman over a sixteen month period.
Several of these flights included Ms. Pelosi's guests, such as grown children, grandchildren, various in-laws, friends and hangers-on. Over 95% of the trips were between the west coast and Washington DC, for what you might call a commute between home and the office.
READ it and WEEP!!
Total trips: 85 over a 68 week period, or 1.25 average trips per week.
Total mileage: 206,264 miles, or 2,427 average miles per trip.
Totalflying time: 428.6 hours, or an average of 5 hours per trip.
Cost to the taxpayers: $2,100,744, or $27,715 per trip, or $1,285,162 per year!
Cost of in flight food and alcohol: $101,429; $1,193 per trip; $62,051 per year.
On one junket to Baghdad, according to the Air Force report, she had the aircraft bar stocked with Johnny Walker Red Scotch, Grey Goose Vodka, E&J Brandy, Bailey's Irish Cream, Maker's Mark Whiskey, Courvoisier Cognac, Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Whiskey, Beefeater Gin, Dewar's Scotch, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Corona Beer and several varieties of wine. This was obviously a very important "gubment bidness" trip.
Evidence generally speaks for itself, and in Ms. Pelosi's case it speaks the language of abuse and (evidently) a serious familial drinking problem, for in a single year she and her spawn drank an amount in excess of the net income of the average employed American! When she said, "... If the stimulus doesn't pass, five hundred million people might lose their jobs...", I thought she was unintentionally revealing her ignorance. I'm now more inclined to think she was pickled.
Even though she can no longer abuse the USAF, she can either fly on her broom, or fly Southwest Airlines, where bags fly free.
The selective outrage is stunning.
I noticed you were silent on the VA state representatives holding a quick session during the inaugural address to restructure their Electoral process. Wait till an opponent is out of town to hold the vote. Did you see it?
Which blog did you copy/paste this from? It seems to be on many of them, word for word. Did you write it or simply forget to give credit to the author?
I searched for the double quoted first line after READ it and WEEP. It found 14,100 matches for that character by character, exact match.
"Total trips: 85 over a 68 week period, or 1.25 average trips per week."
14,100 websites where people have copied and pasted this unchanged.
95% of these were for commute related according to it.
For the remaining 5%, how do they compare with the others in the House/Senate? Did you bother to look? Why not compare with Darrell Issa? He is from CA too and not used to saving a dime so his numbers would provide a ceiling number to compare with. I will do some digging.
"Even though she can no longer abuse the USAF, she can either fly on her broom, or fly Southwest Airlines, where bags fly free."
The broom comment? Insulting and beneath you.
Southwest flights between CA to DC all have 1 stop with double the travel time. The departure/arrival times limited and unlikely to match the appointment calendars. It can be done, but I would not want to do it weekly.
