Oh My DU!

Nancy Pelosi should never have been given roses because.

1. She is worth over 100 million.

2. It reeks of elite.

3. It's sexist.

4. The money could be better spent.

5. It is over the top and excessive,

Dear Goddess, a gesture by many who appreciate Nancy and her hard work for we the peoples in a time when we have a maniac in office that is destroying EVERYTHING we hold dear is vilified. Wow. In a time that we need a little light the gesture of a fundraiser to give our speaker flowers is booed. The contributions that were voluntary were three dollars a flower. At that price and the contributions that were received shows the public's massive support and appreciation for her hard work for all the people.

These flowers were distributed to nursing homes and Walter Reed. A simple, beautiful gesture by speaker Pelosi to the men and women that served our country whether they served in the armed forces or were an everyday worker. No politics involved. The flowers were given to all Americans.

And shared them no matter their party affiliation. That is what Democrats do.

12. Put on your armor SheShe.

Presidential primary season is here again and there should only be one annointed one, you know the drill. True democrats and progressives are now targets, especially proven leaders, and anyone that says a word of defense of our leaders gets attacked too.

The chest plate in my armor this time around is going to have steel that is better than Trump's beautiful wall steel, a lot, lot, lot,,,,,,,,lot better.

22. I learned that Nancy designed the ACA to kill 45,000 Americans a year!

President Obama and Hillary Clinton helped, obviously. They should make up their mind. Either Democrats never do anything or they're busy killing everybody.

They got sexism in there but I guess couldn't figure out how to squeeze an accusation of racism into the War of the Roses.

And Obama and Hill have to have helped that.

All this over roses being sent to Pelosi. A woman that does not deserve them because she is wealthy. OMG!

37. A good woman that has given her best for all America.

She has had a magnificent career. I applaud her.

The roses? A beautiful thank you for all she has done for not only America but a nod to all women that will come after her. She broke the ground for women like Alex Ocasio-Cortez to be where she is today.

31. I can't believe how some are getting bent out of shape with those flowers, dammit!!! It's not...

....like she ASKED for people to do it, and as you point out they were sent all around DC and Walter Reed Hospital to cheer people up.

Nancy Pelosi deserves a tribute, and it wasn't wasted, they went to good use. But then, she's the wicked witch of the west that everyone wants to find fault with.

She's the second most demonized woman in America, probably because of envy.

I posted somewhere else tonight - dickhead McConnell hasn't had a SINGLE vote in the Senate since the new session began, but the Democratic Pelosi led House has already had 25! She's getting it done.

40. Agree

She did not ask for them
It was meant as a kind gesture of support - probably much better than flooding the phone banks
She most likely donated them to hospitals (like she did with the excess) - so they are being appreciated by those in need - so it's not "gone to waste"

Sheesh... this kind of pearl clutching by some really is a waste.

I close my eyes and imagine the aroma in the room.

So, so lovely.



Kick and rec.

And keep pounding, Madame Speaker. Keep pounding. We love you!

36. keep in mind ...

Those who were whining about the "optics" were doing so while paying for Internet access. If they were not hypocrites, they would have given up the access in order to use the money for the hungry, homeless, and those in need of health care.

Bad "optics" on their part.

And our Speaker still gets to enjoy and share those roses, while knowing we appreciate her giving up time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to help us all out of this mess.

38. And even though the article states the flowers are going to Walter Reed Hospital,

concerned comments "hoping" that Nancy would give out flowers to others who can appreciate them.

As if she'd selfishly hoard all the roses in her office until they withered and died, slapping away the hands of aides who reach for just one flower to take home: NO ROSES FOR YOU THEY ARE MINE. Firmly shutting the office door to prevent passersby from stealing a whiff of Nancy's roses. She gazes at the elite bouquets with her feet on the desk, smoking an expensive cigar and laughing while counting million dollar bills.

39. Dear Speaker Pelosi;

Thank you for possessing and exhibiting the empathy, as a Washington, DC leader, to donate the heartfelt expression of gratitude from your admirers to those less fortunate. Your example is lost on your detractors, for they will never, ever command the decency that you exhibited.

In other words: Fuck off you republicon shit stains.
