Nancy Pelosi Slams Supreme Court's McCutcheon Ruling: 'Is This Supposed To Be A Money War?'

Nancy Pelosi Slams Supreme Court's McCutcheon Ruling: 'Is This Supposed To Be A Money War?'

“I am completely amazed that none of this complaining and whinig was taking place when the Conservatives were being aggressive regarding Campaign Reform; Oh, that's right, that was when Obama was heavily building his War chests with monies, from all sources, even the unscrupulous Donors, including the silent mandates to numerous Union's members. But you never saw or heard about any of that, from the mainstream (Left Wing owned) Media. Just enforces the obvious and disgraceful Double Standards, which continue to protectively surround the Progressives, their Policies, their agendas, and total disregard for our Constitution.”

“First of all, "left wing media" is false. Most of the media is owned and controlled by those on the very far far right. Very FEW media outlets are controlled by those on the left. That's just pure facts talking. Stop taking your talking points from Sean hannity and palin who keeps telling you about the lame stream media. Open your eyes to actual facts.”

“Name one person on the left who has given as much money as the Kochs have... who has bankrolled an entire astroturf political movement.... who has financially backed numerous political figures currently in our government..... who have scores of organizations that work to sway public political opinion in their favor..... who are seeking to abolish vital government protection programs ALL in an effort to enrich themselves.

If you can do that then you can compare the right vs left..... but you won't be able to because there is no comparison!”

“Right Wing Media??? Where have you been, reading and listening to over the last 5+ years? The Mainstream Progressive (Left) media has overpraised and glorified the President to unbelievable heights, avoid thing even close to negative, and demonized every Conservatie, the Tea Party, the entire Republican Party, and many individual Conservatives/Republicans. Now that the media tells some truth about our destuctive Prsident him and you have a hissy fit. If you had the courage to actually go back, without a bias attitude, over the last 3 to 5 years, and listen to, and read what Fox has been saying all along, you will possibly be awakened to many "Truths". Which Government subsidies and entitlements are you receiving???”

“Yes..right wing media.You know..the media that caters ONLY to one group who live in the USA.
While the rest of the world actually reads/listens/watches real news..
Odd how if I watch BBC or even Al Jeezera or the NYT's ...facts match up..Not so much with Fox.
And I didn't have a hissy fit ..I merely made a comment.. but then again right wingers love to blow things out of proportion.”

“TO: dickn2000 - Excellent Comment, and hopefully a bit of education for the rush to shout "Racism" masses that are abundantly growing in our Society. I really cannot come up with a reason for it, except for the fact that somehow screaming someone is "Racist" actually diminishes the screamers severe insecurity? Continue to spread your feelings on this matter, especially to the younger generations, who are growing up being surrounded by these Racism Screaming Racists.”

dickn2000 on Nov 25, 2013 at 14:13:22

“My thoughts on racism are these: None of us are born with hatred, bigotry, intolerance and racism in our minds and hearts. We are all born with a clean slate. What is written upon that slate as we mature is what we are taught by our families our friends and our culture and society. And those negative factors must be carefully taught.”

“A little Optimism??? Pretty difficult when there is NOT ONE Government large entitlement Program, that at current status, is not on its way to Bankruptcy, which will be creating drastic tax increases, large cuts in benefits, and debts that I am not sure our Children and Grandchildren will be able to handle. IRS Just announced in just ONE of their Overseen Entitlement Programs, the Earned Income Credit, they paid out more than $110BILLION, over the last 5 to 10 years in Fraudulent Claims. That's ONE Program. So I repeat, "A little optimism??" Please!!!!!!”

“Just 2 mention a few items; The Bill that passed was approx. 2,700 pages, now over 20,000. The Bill that passes included various Penalty Fees/Charges. The Supreme Court basically said that "As written" the Bill is not Legal. Then overstepped their bounds of Purpose/Authority stating "BUT, if these Fees were called a TAX the Bill is Legal". With your knowledge of Constitution, what's the ONLY body of U.S. Government that can pass a Bill to change/adjust,create a Federal TAX. You got it, The Congress. But did Bill, as it should have, been sent back to the Congress, technically as a new BILL? Your correct again, NO. Oh, one additional minor matter, once a Bill is passed and becomes LAW, who has the ability, and authority, to Amend, Append, or institute changes to the LAW. Well by now I believe you are probably confused, so I will give you a hint; NOT THE PRESIDENT alone. Sorry, but just have to refer to your comment on the 2012 election. It is believed if the several now known Scandals, which were secretly and deceptively held back, would have come out, as they should have, the election may have gone VERY different.
P.S. The ObamaCare seems to be going really well isn't it?? Even Wolf Blitzer just stated; " Maybe the Administration should listen to the GOP, and delay this for a year." (train wreck, Nightmare) OK, Mr. or Ms. Uninformed (HLL), your up!!!”

“Finally a comment worth it's ink. Fortunately it is not all Americans who will take whatever comes down the Obama pike, but only those that are part of the massive uninformed, or like the illegals in LA County receiving $650M in Welfare each year, or the mostly non-working families, who may either pay a very low income tax or more likely a negative tax, but just want more and more. Simple proven facts they cannot understand such as Obama's promise to insure added 30M people, yet Government study shows will leave an est. 28M without coverage. Also report came out this morning that in last 4 years average household income has decreased by $2,538. Full timers are being made Part Time, having to Change Doctors, and Plans, and Premiums are increasing all around the Country. But the uninformed can only hear Obama's words. Increased Poverty, decreased employment, more hungry children, zero education improvement, all under Obama, especially for Blacks and Hispanics. He dazzles them with words and untruths, and making more and more of them lower class poorer families, giving their children no chance for a real future, mostly all do to his Race Alone. Sad, Sad, Sad!!!!!.”

“With a response, such as this, you have the hypocritical, and obviously "hateful" attitude, to accuse someone else, or a group, of "hate".
I truly feel that what occurred with this young Hero is definitely an injustice, which SHOULD be corrected, but understand that it your type of feelings, and rhetoric, which not only compounds situations, but more importantly, supports and enhances the continuance of such.

“I can partially understand your point for 2008. As a long time Conservative, even I was extremely hopeful with the Hope and Change spiel. BUT, for 2012, regardless who he was running against, any halfway intelligent Liberal, had a 4 year history to look at, which will probably be recorded in History as the 2nd worst Presidential term, with the 2012 being on top. If the Administration had not hidden numerous facts, and did not promote (now known) obvious LIES, etc., he never would have been elected. As a white man, I strongly feel one of his worst non-accomplishments is how he has made most African Americans to be worse off than before he appeared on the scene. His continuous lies, and the continuous lies of HIS Administration, to the American People and Congressional Committees is (to me) an impeachable situation. Listen to his current speeches, close your eyes, and imagine you are in 2008 or 2012, - It is ALL the same. God Bless America!!! GTA”

“What else would you call scandals that have no factual basis? Basically what you're saying is that it's our patriotic duty to reject everything our President says because that's what you're supposed to do in America.

It makes sense why elected conservative members of Congress don't do anything, the people who voted for them are stupid.”

His comments, word were appropriate and too the point and I feel they correctly stated what is fact.

What we seen from Republicans and few Democrats was Politicization of these incident, pure politics from both sides, made up scandals and the Media played there part and the media played with other hidden agenda's (not so hidden for those who kept the eyes and ears and brain engaged).”

“First of all, what talent? Lopez's career peaked with the movie "Out of Sight," and it's been downhill ever since. Further, she already has a lot of money. (In other words, she didn't need to do the gig.) If I were in her position, I would not have taken it, no matter the price. The amount of tarnish to her reputation can't be fixed at any cost. Finally, given that she has agents, advance people, hangers-on, etc., whose job it is to vet her gigs up front, she has no excuse.”

“"I really doubt there is one of you, who are being so quick to throw stones, if you had the talent, you WOULD perform and with a huge smile cash the check."

that's a ridiculous statement. i'm sorry but some people actually have standards that they will not ignore. several celebrities have refused to appear/perform in countries or for individuals who have ties to human rights abuses (think bono), terrorism or are generally considered gross people.
so no, if i were as talented as jlo or any other celebrity chances are i probably wouldn't need the money that badly and would have the freedom to follow my convictions... and i'd say "no."”

“It does not make sense to me to totally forget about our 1st Amendment Rights, in the scenario, such as this,where someone strongly expressed his opinion, and possibly by his own interpretation, of our 2nd Amendment Rights. If this type of act is cause for Deportation, where are we going to send the millions of actual American Citizens, who are at this very time, strongly making their thoughts being heard regarding gun control. Just quickly, on another note, if the 2nd Amendment was written, as interpreted by many, for the "People" to be able to defend n protect themselves from a Tyrannical and Overly Self Empowered Government, would it not make sense that the people should be able to possess the same weapons as do the Tyrannical Governments Militia? Just a thought. If all of Washington would stop Politicizing everything to the extreme, (totally for their own benefit), and actually begin, as it should be, and start working for the People and our Country, we could move ahead at lightening speed.
