Pelosi Unplugged

September 20th, 2013 No comments

If you’re in need of a good laugh, head over to Politico for some prime Pelosi patter.

It’s chock full of great nuggets. I snickered at this:

Pelosi was sharply derisive about the scorn Republicans have for this president.

“You know why it is,” she said. “You know why it is. He’s brilliant, … he thinks in a strategic way in how to get something done … and he’s completely eloquent. That’s a package that they don’t like.”

But this brought on a full guffaw:

“He has been … open, practically apolitical, certainly nonpartisan, in terms of welcoming every idea and solution. I think that’s one of the reasons the Republicans want to take him down politically, because they know he is a nonpartisan president, and that’s something very hard for them to cope with.”

Thanks, Nancy. I needed that.

Advocates of minimum wage laws often give themselves credit for being more “compassionate” towards “the poor.” But they seldom bother to check what are the actual consequences of such laws…In the United States, the last year in which the black unemployment rate was lower than the white unemployment rate—1930—was also the last year when there was no federal minimum wage law.

Notable Quotables #15

April 5th, 2013 No comments

I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those know they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.

Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette, defending her support of a federal ban on high capacity magazines for handguns and rifles

Her official spokeswoman, Juliet Johnson, didn’t fare any better in her defense:

she simply misspoke in referring to ‘magazines’ when she should have referred to ‘clips,’ which cannot be reused because they don’t have a feeding mechanism

There is no such thing as a high capacity clip. If there were–and it had no feeding mechanism–it couldn’t be used in a semi-automatic weapon like the AR-15.

There are three basic types of clips: en bloc, stripper and moon. Each holds a handful of rounds. They are used to reload the fixed magazines of low capacity rifles or the cylinder of some revolvers, and to make reloading high capacity removable magazines easier. Even in the last case, they aren’t as common as the more convenient lever-action reloaders.

In any case, ammunition is not purchased in clips, but is loaded by hand into clips which are then, like magazines, reused many, many, many times.

Here’s a legislative proposal: in order to vote on–much less sponsor–a bill, you must have some semblance of a clue regarding its subject.

If you let the desire for gratification pass, it will pass. And you’ll be the better for it. Problem is, somewhere along the way…our country forgot this rule. Hard work became secondary to hard-ons, and feeling good trumped doing good. What we have now is a growing belief that the self’s satisfaction is the most important thing in the world—even if the things you choose to fill that need…just don’t work.

The idea of a minor decrease in the amount of increase in government spending causing end-times is laughable to everyone who has more IQ points than teeth.

I can’t get excited by the question of whether Senator Robert Menendez had sex with a prostitute in Central America. It is her word against his—and when it comes to a prostitute’s word against a politician’s word, that is too close to call.

Voters aren’t children, but too many of them have the childish notion that the best policies are those that pander to their immediate desires. The challenge for the GOP is to persuade them to put away childish things.
