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."

oops...wrong post!


"Let them eat cake!"

Whatever Pelosi Antoinette.

Whoo-hooo! Great News!

I LOVE it.

It's apparent that her strategist said to get out there and use the words, "Freedom," "pursuit of happiness," "liberation," and other words. That means, they've done market testing and found that these are the things the majority of the public care about.

The public is waking up.

Couple that to her apparent cluelessness and we have a bonus gift just for playing. We should play that video in campaign ads with a photo of her Senate buddies Feinstein and Boxer, every chance we get.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

So let me

get this straight.

Americans no longer need to work 40 hour work weeks, and are free to "follow their passion" while all health care costs are magically taken care of.

Oh boy. What could go wrong?

It could not be clearer

these f...ing Liberals don't give a s..t about anybody but themselves. Talk about "SPIN", puts OReally to shame. "We're looking out for you". What a load of bulls..t. This is the Mother of all political rhetoric. Congratulations Nancy for being the queen of c..ts.

Labels aside FOX news and Nancy are preaching the same message


Free includes debt-free!

I'm venting like never before

The last thing you need is to interfer.

Reviewing this thread it seems you have competition.

Carry on!

Free includes debt-free!

You seem to be

The only one replying to me. I don't consider you competition.

No offense intended.

But, I've probable annoyed many over the years (5 years now) and 13,700 comments.

In my fumbling way I try to tell truths and stimulate thinking.

I must admit that I have often failed, in my own eyes, to be friends with people when I comment.

Thanks to you efforts I got to hear Tom Woods first broadcast live. I am grateful.

How stupid does this absurd

How stupid does this absurd excuse for a politician think Americans are? Reducing the 40 hour work week means part time employment or massive lay-offs. The garbage spewing out of this bo-toxed mongrel supercedes any intelligence she may have had. Being laid off or managing with reduced hours will deplete your income. How much passion will anyone be able to afford to pursue anything? PLEASE don't insult us further with such nonsense that this is all about your "wellness" and "well being".

She's repeating Karl Marx's promise.

It has failed everywhere, it will fail here.

To succeed there must be someone to loot.

Free includes debt-free!

Free to

pursue 'your' happiness...follow 'your' passion ONLY if 'your' passion is free or cheap, eh, Nancy??

Most people live paycheck to paycheck now...a reduction in work hours equals a reduction in pay...or at least that mathematical equation was true when I went to school. Who knows if it's true with this modern math?!

ending the 40 hour work week would be good..

If we did it at the same time as ending the federal reserve.

I think she needs to become underemployed

... to find out whats in it.

The people who'd buy into this spin are the same people who don't work much/at all in the first place, and don't want to. Why work when the system is willing to steal from me to provide to you in exchange for your loyalty?


She does make a point about following one's passions. Being stuck in a rut sucks, and sometimes it takes a 'from bad to worse' situation to get out of it. Kind of like how I used my homelessness as an excuse to leave the ghetto and just see the country coast to coast.

If I didn't follow mine I'd probably be stuck in some crappy job that I hated, rather than doing whatever it is that I do now.

But yeah, it's still putting lipstick on a pig. Mmmm....bacon.

One freedom that can never be taken away is the freedom to choose one's own thoughts, and react as one chooses.

There's no excuse

For not home schooling, right Nancy? Liberate the children from the indoctrination centers.

Become a tax parasite, let Congress borrow the money.

Thank goodness I can only

Thank goodness I can only work 40 hours a week.

Okay, how about we force

Okay, how about we force companies to be able to only make people work 35! hours a week! Think of all the free time they will have.
