Nancy Pelosi: "We lose 500 million jobs per month"

Finally! Someone in Congress is spelling out in no uncertain terms just how urgent this stimulus package really is!

In this video Nancy Pelosi tells reporters that the package couldn't move any faster, due to the tremendous loss of American jobs. Her numbers? 500 million Americans lose their jobs every month we don't do something about the economy.

Here's the video:

And here's the catch: what was that figure again? I checked the U.S. Census today and found the U.S. population to be at 305,748,951. That's 305 mil, folks.

So, wait, how many people are losing their jobs? I must be confused. After all, Speaker Pelosi is the next most powerful government official in line after the President and Vice President.

My pastor (who sent me the video) posed a frightening idea: Pelosi is next in line after these two for the Presidency seat if something happened to both of them!

Just for fun, here she is talking about how birth control will help stimulate our economy. Stimulate something? No question. The economy? Eh, not so much.

I wonder if she used that number on purpose for pure hyperbole, or, if she could use a good fact checker before she opens her mouth?

I am surprised she has not been excommunicated from the Catholic church for her very public stance on abortion and now this idea that birth control is needed to save the states money. Maybe that is coming in the near future too.

HA! I heard this today - SanFranGranNan! What a joke! How do people like that get elected??? She slays me. I CAN NOT believe she has not been excommunicated - now THAT would be cool if the Catholic church would actually do something like that!

Ok, I just found the "photo contest" from December and put in my caption. I think it's a close one between Parisienne Farmgirl and Owen.

Got an idea - you two should come for a weekend with a little grocery money and you and I will cook and can our brains out and get you guys loaded with ready made meals for the spring. Sounds like a plan. Get in the car.

PS, I really love you.

Hey Stephanie and Par. Far. (do you hate that?)- good point about the excomm! I do wonder how the Catholic church feels about her open 1) supposed adherence to Catholic doctrine and 2) support of both birth control and "pro-choice" options..

She truly does seem out of her mind sometimes. I watched 2 videos of her repeating this altered figure, even after she was corrected. Ouch.
