Do all Liberal politicians only care about personal gain?

Do Democrats think this is OK?


Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco.

Star-Kist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi's home district.

Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi.

Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan work force.

Paul Pelosi, Nancy's husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock.

In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competition's.

Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an 'economic development credit in American Samoa'.

Pelosi has called the Bush Administration "CORRUPT"??

How do you spell "HYPOCRISY"?

Update 2:

Pelosi should be thrown in jail.

    That's the problem! We the people, liberals more then Republicans allow them to take care of the big corporations that put them into office. We the peaps need to let them know they are not there for the few, but for the mass. I believe we the peaps need to consider the libertarian party that is for the people and wants to get this country back on track! The 2 party system is not working here. I guess to fix the economy we must offer tax credits to companies that stay in America. I think we need to get rid of NAFTA, and limit what we let in our borders.

    Yes, Democrats who hold public office, like Pelosi, should all be put in jail, along with all the Republicans. They are all traitors.

    Liberals aren't Democrats. They know that that party has been compromised by fascist Zionist, just like the Republicans. So, stop equating liberals with the Democratic Party! OK? God Bless You.

    Let's not forget William 'cold cash' Jefferson or Rod Blagojevich.

    But, no, some only care about abusing interns or destroying America.

    The Democratic American public does not care about any of this. Just give them their handout and they are happy.

    every politician does this...

    while you're busy watching Nancy, everyone else is doing it too...


    and wasn't Samoa always exempt from U.S. minimum wage?

    Pretty much, democrats are about being out stealing all the time. What Pelosi has done is nothing compared to what Reid, Frank, Dodd, Rangle, Waters, Jefferson, and many others have done just lately.

    Do all conservative politicians only care about personal gain?

    Dick Cheney is the former CEO of Halliburton.

    Halliburton received 200 no-bid contracts to rebuild Iraq.

    Cheney still holds $8.4 million in Halliburton stock.

    4,000 Americans have DIED there thanks to a guy (Cheney) who received five draft deferments during the Vietnam War.

    Cheney told Patrick Leahy to f*** himself on the Senate floor.

    Definitely a conflict of interest.

    It's funny how people don't pull their head out of the sand long enough to get a good look. Democrat or Republican -- this is despicable.

    The idea is to be objective -- remove yourself from your party platform long enough to see what just happened.

    I don't think "Liberal" is an accurate qualifier here. A better word would be "all." And the answer would be "yes."

    Yes. Conversely, all conservative politicians are selfless angels who don't gain from any of their legislation.

    the obvious: when it comes to sleeze and graft, the key word is not liberal or conservative, it is POLITICIAN
