Along Life’s Way
Petulant, Partisan Pelosi
By Lois E. Wilson

A talk host states, “As to the Fates
For what it’s worth—
If it should be that I would be
The last man on Earth
And Pelosi would seem to be
The last woman on Earth,
With that dismal account,
I’d demand a recount!”
In 2011, I wrote the above verse after hearing radio talk show host, Neal Boortz, make the declaration. Nancy Pelosi is becoming more and more quotable these days and acting a little petulant too. Some of her quotes from the past are:
*But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it away from the fog of the controversy.
*I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels.
*Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program.
*If I had my way, sporting guns would be strictly regulated, the rest would be confiscated.
*As many of you know, I came from San Francisco. We don’t have a lot of farms there. Well, we do have one—it’s a mushroom farm, so you know what that means.
*Our view of the law is that if somebody is here without sufficient documentation,  that is not reason for deportation.
More recent quotes of hers are:
*It’s the end of the world. The debate on health care is life/death. This is Armageddon.
*This is like giving you a bowl of doggie doo, put a cherry on top,  call it a chocolate sundae. This is nothing.
*In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic.
My observation is that Trump has reached his hand across the aisle; however, will the other side  show up, will its members slap it, put a fist in his face, sit on their hands, or will they for the sake of our country and its citizens shake it in good faith so that they can solve problems together?
