Pelosi: Death Of 40-hour Work Week Means Freedom To ‘Follow Your Passion’

"Some parts of Obamacare need to be clarified, she acknowledged, but losing that 40-hour work week will really free Americans to “pursue your happiness … follow your passion.”

“Obverwhelmingly, for the American people, this is a liberation,”... “It’s about wellness, it’s about prevention, it’s about a healthy America,” she said."

So THAT'S what it is

I thought they were trying to kill us off with more stress and the loss of our jobs and homes. How silly of me to doubt their wisdom.

Pelosi and passion should not be used in close proximity

Some of us visit DP during lunchtime.

To paraphrase

"Let them eat cake!"

Oh yah right...you Fruitloop

How in the hell am I supposed to follow my passion with no money?

This bitch Pelosi is bat shit

This bitch Pelosi is bat shit crazy. She should be committed to an insane asylum.

How will they collect taxes

How will they collect taxes when nobody has a job or money? What then?

Print it. What's the problem.

Print it. What's the problem.

Borrow the money, that's what they've done since 1893.


Free includes debt-free!

So the people are technically

So the people are technically considered the middlemen. Why go through the middlemen when they can take it hot off the printers! Lol!

The FED buys Treasuries, interest bearing notes.

Taxpayers pay interest only.

An sound economy is based on sound money.

Not paper promises with ever decreasing purchasing power.

Free includes debt-free!

Death of the 40 hour workweek means Congress screwed up.

Big surprise.

Free includes debt-free!

While the dollar continuously

While the dollar continuously loses value and wages stagnate due to inflation.


This should make the highlight reel for the worst of 2013 in late December.

On the flip side, just print the money and hand it out so no one has to work lol



i think if everyone gets their own personalized hells she'll be a poor person forced to get obama care, and whos only allowed to work 29 hours a week at mcdonalds that way she can "pursue" her own interests,

siphoning gas to get to work
selling her body on the street
swiping carts of groceries to feed her children
spending many meaningful hours of self contemplation wondering when the power will be turned back on
Only taking a shower once a week
living 6 deep in a 2 bedroom hovel.
Grandtheft Anything.

Yes nancy this will indeed liberate me thank you so much. hallelujah for obama care and the 29 hr work week.


Right on nancy. 29 hours a

Right on nancy. 29 hours a week at minimum wage. About 97 cents in the checking account. That would give people the freedom to take that trip to Europe they always dreamed of or the money to start up that new business.

Ad Nauseam

Ad nauseam: is a Latin term for something unpleasurable that has continued "to [the point of] nausea"

really what is there left to say, thats all i got left. at least ill be freed to pursue my own interests which the government has graciously allowed me to pursue bc they've decided i dont need to work. i want to just punch anyone in the face that buys her argument.


Now you know why she took the

Now you know why she took the insider information on VISA....Obamacare cutting the hours by over 25% and for those with fixed costs, there is always VISA. Let's hear it for Steve Croft's question.

Be Your Own Media!!!

It's fun to laugh at the crazy lady.


Defeat the panda-industrial complex

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

Attagirl, Nancy!

~turn on purple text~

Way to tell the truth, Pelosi! Just like how the survivors of the Holocaust learned the great truths of choosing one's own reactions to utter depravity, and thus were more free than their captors, we're more free by being denied a means to earn enough money through honest means! Brilliant! How compassionate and wise! Pelosi for President!

~turn off purple text~

... Though it's true that one can choose to be happy regardless of one's personal circumstances, it's awfully insincere coming from someone who is about as far from being a clergyman, a guru, or living Budda, a prophet, or any other representative of great spiritual wisdom.

I hope this turns her own supporters against her.

Pelosi is right! If you get

Pelosi is right! If you get laid off you can always persue your dreams of getting elected to Congress so you can sit on your ass all day and pass bills without reading them while playing political limp biscuit with other people with the same "D" or "R" letter after their names...

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Who knows...

she may run for president after all. Or vp.

With sufficient technology

With sufficient technology and non-interference from government, people and economy can truly prosper and reach a state where 9-5, 5 days a week grind need not happen.

But throwing people out of unemployment (using Obamacare) and calling it a 'liberation' is horrific. It is such helpless occasions when I want to believe in eternal hell for the criminals, eventhough I am athiest leaning.

Choke, Barf

Pelosi should be liberated, prevented from being in office or having a work week in order to achieve a healthy America. I'd love to see her FREE to follow her passion as long as it's not in office to destroy the Constitution and Bill Of Rights!
Read her comments and wanted to barf.


Do any of you all ever remember such in-your-face...

...bald-faced lying?

I'm not just talking about Nancy, but the Obama Administration.

With a smile on their face, they call white black, and hot cold.

  • "Humanitarian" wars.
  • Raising the debt ceiling doesn't mean we're going into more debt.
  • You built a business? You didn't do that. Somebody else (government) helped you.
  • "Non lethal" lethal weapons.
  • It's simply a lie that most mass murderers choose gun free zones as their choice of location to kill people.
  • More guns in society makes it a more dangerous society.
  • The Syrian government gassed their own people.
  • Abortion is not killing because they're not "alive".
  • GMO is good for you.
  • Radiation exposure is safe.
  • The water is healthy to drink, the air safe to breathe.
  • The NSA is not spying on Americans.

Blah blah. I'm amazed they just look in the camera and lie. These people are actors. They are sociopaths. They are sick, sick people.

Before Pelosi left Candy's office, she should have been surrounded by police and arrested. This lady is a criminal.

She should hang.

She should hang.

Ya gotta sit back an' admire the colossal chutzpah of this woman

Ya gotta sit back an' admire the colossal chutzpah of this woman. Like the now-dead Great Stone Face, it is a wonder to behold!

I wonder if the AFL-CIO and other unions agree with her? Their members are the ones getting their hours and benefits slashed.

Maybe these out-of-work union folks will have enough free time to run suitable candidates in the San Francisco primaries next year.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Bat shit crazy - thats all you can say

The woman is bat shit crazy.

And if your passion is paying your bills and having a roof over your head I guess you are screwed - roflmao.

Be careful, Nancy

experiencing life outside the 9:00 - 5:00 daily grind might cause even more people to wake up!

Is this senility, botox toxicity, or NWO-speak?

We may never know.
