Nancy Pelosi – On Wealth Redistribution

From Fox News:

Pelosi: Income Disparity Also About Ownership, Equity, Fairness

House speaker pushes for Employee Free Choice Act

October 19, 2010

Our transcription:

… We’re talking about addressing the disparity in our country of income, where the wealthy people continue to get wealthier and some other people are falling out of the middle class, when we want to bring many more people into the middle class.

Mind you, Ms. Pelosi was addressing unionized steel workers. (Actually, women steel workers, since this was before the United Steelworkers International Women’s Conference.)

You know how those poor union steel workers have to struggle along on their meager salaries and benefits.

But that disparity is not just about wages alone, that disparity is about ownership and equity.

Obviously, Ms. Pelosi has learned nothing about the housing crisis of the last three years. She ‘wants the keys back.’

It’s all about fairness in our country.

And we believe the healthcare bill is about jobs, the energy bill is about jobs, the education bill is about jobs, certainly the Recovery Act is about jobs.

In truth, none of the bills that the Democrats have rammed through Congress have helped to create or save jobs. And the "energy bill," aka ‘Cap And Trade,’ that is waiting in the wings will certainly destroy untold numbers of jobs.

On the contrary, all of these bills were and are aimed solely at increasing government control and income redistribution. Which is really what Ms. Pelosi means by "fairness."

But again we want more.

And when people have those jobs, we want them to be able to bargain collectively. (Applause) We want to pass the Employer Free choice act as well

Nothing says "fairness" like taking away the secret ballot for union votes. And nothing creates jobs like unions.

After all, just look at what the unions have done for the steel industry in this country. Look at all the steel jobs they have created – overseas.

    How this broad managed to avoid even the slightest scrutiny of her sanity is beyond me. No Meet the Depressed – No This Week – No News Hour – NOTHING!

    If they can release Rush Limbaugh’s medical records, then where the hell is hers?! She’s either a complete idiot or on drugs or both. And this is the third in line to get nuclear launch codes?! Oh yeah, right, she’d surrender them to the Chinese as a gesture of good will & understanding.

    When we “Take Our Country Back” will there be anything left?

  2. Hm. So does that mean I can go to my lefty friends — all of whom right now have better jobs and houses than me (we still rent) — and demand they give me their house and some of their income out of fairness?

    Nothing this country needs more than female steel workers….unless it’s female fire fighters.

    Madame Defarge, my little sans-culotte, how goes your knitting today?

    Europe is burning. There are riots in the streets. And still you complain about “ownership.” And still you speak of confiscations as the way forward.

    Fairness. With that one word, “fairness,” you violate property, law, ethics, and religion. In cold blood, impelled by no necessity, you sweep aside the proscriptions of centuries, and cast down the Magna Carta and the 8th Commandment.

    For the collectivist mind, for the nihilist, wherever wealth exists, wherever ownership exists, there is an “injustice” to be avenged. And spoils to be had for the taking.

    hastam illam cruentam (“this cruel spear” –– Cicero alluding to the spear thrust into the ground at public auctions under the confiscations of Sulla).

      You give her too much credit.

      Despite the multi-million dollar wardrobe….she is simply a thug party boss.

      Some people think she’s an ideologue. I think her biggest idea of any day is the color of nail-polish her servants will apply.

      If Daddy hadn’t been a thug party boss in Maryland, she would be mismanaging the cosmetic booth at JCPenney’s today.

    Nancy and her progressive loon friends are eager to re-distribute the wealth “of others” but when it comes to their fortunes………..no way!

    Dhimmitude — What does it mean? People, we are getting the Big Shaft and here it comes!

    Obama used it in the health care bill.

    Now isn’t this interesting? It was used in the health care law.

    Every day there’s another revelation of what Obama and his fellow Democrats are doing to our country.

    Dhimmitude — I had never heard the word until now. Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting. It’s on page 107 of the
    healthcare bill. I looked this up on Google and yep, it exists. It is a REAL word.

    Amish , scientologists, christian scientists and Muslims are exempt …ARE EXEMPT …from the requirements of the health care bill. I think I could become Amish a whole lot easier than muslim.

    Word of the Day: Dhimmitude

    Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.

    Obama Care allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling”, “risk-taking”, and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.

    How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.

    Dhimmitude serves two purposes: It enriches the muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to Islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to Islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y, and Z types who have no moral anchor. If you don’t believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver. “Sure, I’ll be a muslim if it means free health insurance and no taxes. Where do I sign, bro?”

    I recommend sending this post to your contacts. This is desperately important and people need to know about it — quickly!
