Isn't "nationalize" and "socialize" really the same thing? I think the addle-brained Waters was revealing a truth she wasn't supposed to be quite ready to reveal, yet. Her superiors will have to punish her, now, I guess, except, as you said, nobody really noticed.

Too bad Ted Kennedy has a brain tumor...I really do mean it, what a terrible thing to happen to anybody, even him, but boy, what a symbolic occurrence that is, though.

They blithely say "socialized medicine" without concern; I guess "socialism" (if not outright "Communism") has suddenly become P.C.


My funny...

".......We're....going to take over...!"

Did you see the folks sitting by her start looking at her in absolute disbelief?!



Ah yes, Maxine Waters.

In September 2005, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) named Waters one of the thirteen most corrupt members of Congress. CREW's designation was largely based on the results of an investigation by the Los Angeles Times into non-competitive awards of federal contracts to businesses owned by or connected to members of Waters' family.
Waters has been accused of aiding convicted murderer Assata Shakur to remain in Cuba, where she is receiving political asylum. In 1998, the United States House of Representatives passed a unanimous resolution that urged Cuban President Fidel Castro to return Shakur to the United States. The document used Shakur's birth name, Joanne Chesimard. Waters voted in favor of the measure, but when she later realized that Assata Shakur and Joanne Chesimard were the same person, she wrote her own letter to Castro. Waters' letter explained that she had been tricked by House Republicans into supporting the measure and further stated that Shakur had been "persecuted as a result of her political beliefs and political affiliations," and that she supported "the right of all nations to grant political asylum to individuals fleeing political persecution." Expectedly, Waters came under attack for casting her vote without understanding the issue for which she was voting. Shakur remains free in Cuba.

"This could become worse than a trade war." (April 2005, about sticking to the deadline for US Visa Waiver Program countries to make their passports compliant with US standards)

"The objection is in writing, and I don't care that it isn't signed by a member of the Senate." (December 2000, on her objection to the results of the Presidential Election in 2000), to which Al Gore responded "The chair would advise that the rules do care".

"The future of this community depends on our ability to stop the monster in its tracks." (At an anti-Wal-Mart protest).

"George W Bush, go to hell! And while you're at it, we want you to take Ashcroft with you. And don't forget Rumsfeld. And please carry along Condi Rice. . . I have to march because my mother could not have an abortion." (at the televised March for Women's Lives march, Washington D.C., April 24, 2005)

And to that last one Maxine, there’s always suicide. I’m just saying…
