This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Pelosi, Pickens, Prop 10...Raping The American Tax Payer


See this article for background...

Well? I do believe that the WSJ heard us...they fact-checked the poor slogs at FactCheck. In an article entitled, Pelosi Investment Shows Unlikely Energy Alliance, it is revealed that T Boone Pickens is beguiling The Pelosi and The Pelosi has been snookered? Not hardly. Her husband's "tiny investment" by buying way below the then market price reeks of impropriety, just like we have previously reported.
[...] Asked if the investment could raise the appearance of impropriety, even if it is legal, Mr. Hammill said such a standard would mean the speaker or her spouse wouldn't be able to own shares in any company given the comprehensive nature of her position.

The Pelosis got in on the ground floor at Clean Energy, purchasing shares in an auction when Mr. Pickens publicly launched the company on May 25, 2007. Clean Energy markets compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas as a fuel for motor vehicles. The investment was valued at $50,000 to $100,000 when the shares opened at $12.10 apiece, according to Mrs. Pelosi's financial disclosure forms. These forms list investments only as a range of values. The purchase is listed as stock held by the speaker's husband, successful financier and businessman Paul Pelosi. [...]
Sounds like the usual poli-speak to me.
[...] But Mr. Pickens's recent embrace of renewable energy has made him the darling of the Democrats. Since introducing his "Pickens' Plan," the Texas oil billionaire has met with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Reid, Mrs. Pelosi and other top Democratic lawmakers.

Mr. Pickens "was my mortal enemy," Mr. Reid said in July. "He's my pal now." [END]
Be sure to go read the rest of the article, especially the "Key Platform Plank" section. No. No influence peddling there. GAWD!!
