    Opinion-Editorial: "Reid and Pelosi, Not As Bad As You Think"

    NOTE: The opinions expressed herein are solely the viewpoint and responsibility of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of American Police Beat or its staff. -Ed.

    by Ron York
    Policepay.net


    Recently, I have noticed that some cops in Nevada and California have joined the movement to remove Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi from the leadership roles in the United States Congress by defeating them for reelection. I have even heard police officers tell me of their involvement with the "Tea Party."

    If the Tea Party had their way, all of you would be making minimum wage and them and their Yuppie buddies would be hauling down seven figure incomes as arbiters of the economy (pimps that produce nothing). If you think they are working for your best interest you are out to lunch.

    Working as a lobbyist in the United States Capitol was an eye opener for me. I can tell you unequivocally that there are no liberal Democrats in congress -zilch. There are only Republicans and Republicans Lite. I get quite a laugh when I hear the acronym "RINO." The worst thrashing I got in Washington was from Chris Dodd's office. I thought it was Newt Gingrich. John Boehner and his staff were much more receptive..

    As for Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, they may be identified as liberals, but everything they do in their personal lives is strictly conservative. Harry's son Rory is on the board of commissioners for Clark County. If you think that he is some roll over union puppet, you are mistaken. I will concede that Harry would never win the Miss Congeniality award at the Miss America Pageant. Harry Reid is a conservative that supports law and order.

    Nancy Pelosi? She could win the Miss America Pageant. I challenge any of you to go and meet her and come away not liking her. She is a conservative with a heart. I am too. Do not be sucked in by the conservative siren song. Harry and Nancy are firmly behind law enforcement in this country. We need them. Our country needs them. Police officers in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming really need them.

    As Barry Goldwater's ads said "In your heart you know he is right." Send Harry and Nancy a letter or an email telling them they have your support.

    As a law enforcement officer in Alabama Mr. York I don't need them and the nation cannot afford them. As an individual, I sure as hell don't need them, you, or a union telling me how much I am worth.

    I don't think it is possible to have a low enough opinion of Reid and Pelosi for them to be not as bad as I think. Seriously, no liberals in congress? What is this guy on? Methinks he drinks the kool-aid.

    I respectfullly disagree with Mr. York's article, finding it devoid of fact and serving only as entertainment value in the form of a good laugh.

    Conservatives? Take off the myopia glasses and get a clue. The Democrats want to take your money and make you dependent upon a massive government they control. They aren't conservative in their personal lives, they are elitists who don't think their policies should apply to them. But make no mistake, they want the government they control, to run our lives and redistribute all our money. They are liberal, progressive, socialist in their political ambitions and elitist because they are exempt.

    It sounds like someone is trolling APB. Is this guy for real? I don't think Pelosi's group would even want her considered a "conservative at heart." I'm voting for a fake.

    The opinions expressed by this poster are wholly his own, and should never be construed to even remotely be in representation of his employer, its agencies or assigns. In fact, they probably fail to be in alignment with the opinions of any rational human being.

    He's not a cop, he's an accountant who handles contract negotiations for the FOP.

    I'd say his shit probably won't sell well.

    It appears he needs help counting, too. Not only is there a fair number of very liberal Democrats in Congress (including two of my own Senators) but there is also a socialist from Vermont.

    As an FOP member and Lodge officer I can tell you that would not sell at my meetings in AL where we "really need them".

    Nancy Pelosi is the current poster woman for the Democratic Party. She did not get elected and stay in Congress representing San Francisco by being conservative. Her picture is in the Webster Dictionary next to the word Liberal.

    This might qualify as the biggest crock of sh*t I've ever read on the 'internets'... It disgusts me that some of the people in this country are this blind

    I am looking forward a topics based debate/discussion. There is no reason to go personal from here on out (or any other time for that matter). This is in the public forums and I would like it to stay here for members and lurkers alike.
