Quote of the Day: Princess Nancy edition

Posted by: ST on November 18, 2011 at 9:15 pm

Not to scare you going into the weekend or anything but:

Last week, the California congresswoman hit five cities in five days, barnstorming for money to try to win the 25 more seats it would take to regain control. And if that happens — or when, according to her — at the top of her to-do list, she says, will be “doing for child care what we did for health-care reform” — pushing comprehensive change.

[...]

Of the need for child-care legislation, she says, “I could never get a babysitter — have five kids in six years and no one wants to come to your house. . . . And everywhere I go, women say the same thing” about how hard it is to find the kind of reliable care that would make their family lives calmer and work lives more productive. When it comes to “unleashing women” in a way that would boost the economy, she says, “this is a missing link.”

Congress did pass such a bill, in 1971, but President Richard M. Nixon vetoed it because he thought it would undermine families and force them to put children in government-run centers.

“One of the great pieces of unfinished business is high-quality child care; I wonder why we just can’t do that,’’ Pelosi said. Her spokesman Drew Hammill said later that she doesn’t have a specific child-care proposal at the ready; that’s what the legislative process is for. But the Nixon-era legislation of which she spoke approvingly subsidized child care for low-income parents and was available to anyone who wanted to pay for it. “She sees this as the next big problem to tackle,’’ Hammill said.

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

In light of this, I wonder what Her Royal Highness thinks about the ‘frisco proposal from a couple months ago to mandate that parents in California give babysitters OT, worker’s comp, rest periods, etc?  Just kidding. I don’t wonder at all, because far leftists like Nancy Pelosi are so, so very predictable.

Final question: Wonder if we’ll have to “pass the child care bill to find out what’s in it“? Hmm.

    Like I wrote on Twitter, “Why does she hate the children?” ;)

  2. Dina says:

    Why can’t liberals just leave our kids alone? These bullies need to pick on someone their own size.

  3. Janelle says:

    Actually, Dina, all of us need to pick on that twit….you, included. Write one letter a day or week. Do something. Join a tea party group. It’s easy. Google it.

  4. Dina, from a purely mental, psychological & emotional standpoint…they are.

  5. Lori says:

    Sadly, parents put their kids in “government-run centers” everyday. It’s called public school.

  6. Brian says:

    Just want to remind you that there’s a critical debate tomorrow even though a lot of the Press isn’t covering it.

    What next? Occupy Sesame Street?

  8. redgypsy says:

    Maybe liberals are happy enough to “pass the bill to see what’s in it” and then simply hand their kids over (well, the ones they didn’t abort, anyhow), but I WILL NOT!

    To steal a line from, um, somebody-or-other,
    “Resist we much!”

    “no one wants to come to your house”

    Well, the solution is obviously to change things so that the Lower Classes will do what NANCY wants, whether those peasants want it or not. Clearly required is a return to feudalism, where the peasantry within X miles of an elite member’s house (elite membership being defined in terms of political office and/or Ivy League degree) will be required to provide personal service as in the old days.

    Under this bill all childern will be required to attend. If you fail to send your kids then face fine or prison. It’s all about the kids,Right. Wrong it’s all about more government control over everthing and everyone. OOO but if we like you and the money you gave then you get a waiver.I hear the Tea Party is dying,support is waining. I hope we are just waiting in the weeds to vote out these crooks we didn’t get in 2010.

    Just another freebie to encourage those who have babies to game the system out of taxpayer $$. This pig makes me want to puke!

    Quote Princess Nancy: “this is a missing link.”

    I would say that more likely she is the traditional “missing link,” but I would hate to disparage the biped precursors to homo erectus.

    Five kids in six years? Fer cryin’ out loud, didn’t she know what was causing them? Or was it she just thought there was no relationship between “getting messy” five times in those six years and the fact that she swallowed watermelon seeds about the same time each time?

    No wonder she’s all for birth control by abortion. Seems to be the favored method of what used to be known as “trailer trash.”

    And why should I be held responsible for some ninny’s bad decisions by having my hard-earned money stolen by the likes of trailer trash like her and her crony Democraps?

    (I’ll understand if you delete this, ST. It really isn’t very nice, but the vamp just really ticks me off.)

  13. PE says:

    She has a vision of employing the occupiers of SF’s Castro district as unionized day care providers. It do take a village and all that.

    Or, could be she’s just desperately searching for the boundary limits of our nation’s idiocy.

  14. Carlos says:

    If she is the standard of idiocy in this country, idiocy has no boundaries.
