The LA Times Burt Prelutsky Writes About Feinstein,Pelosi,Boxer and Waters

Dianne Feinstein: “All vets are mentally ill and government should prevent them from Dianne-Feinsteinowning firearms”

“Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re Number One. There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘Macbeth’. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”

      Amazing —- Is the “LA Times” finally figuring out that we are tired of their Liberal ways or maybe it’s that they have figured out people who work in the private sector for a living can actually read and buy a paper? I am sure the State’s takers (public employees, welfare recipients, disability recipients and retirees without pensions or savings) will be up-in-arms about Burt’s article.
      Great to see articles like this. The rest of the country is watching California in total amazement at the people we continue to elect.

    I have been thinking the same thing since I moved here 17 years ago. How did the voters of California find so many of these women to vote into what seems like perpetual office. They often say outrageous and what should be embarrassing to themselves statements but Californians still keep voting them in. This state is really in the stage of destroying itself.

      Kaliforniah Krats have the elections easily rigged for 7 decades to say the least. There is no doubt that they are parasites off of your hard earned pay check. I have even seen Boxer crying on the house floor in the old days begging for higher taxes. I’m guessing to cover her lavish pig at the trough lifestyle and for us to cover for their theft by earmarking bills.

    Mr Prelutsky, there is a website named “snopes.com” that many people use to verify these kinds of statements.Maybe you should try it.

      Mr. Garner alludes to “…Snopes.com” as some sort of internet authority when it comes to determining an articles integrity. I wonder if he has ever verified Snopes regarding their integrity and agenda; just might find a fox in the hen house . . .

        Snopes certainly isn’t perfect, and they’ve been caught stretching the truth once or twice. But in general, they provide verifiable references and do a decent job at debunking. Snopes aside, if you go to the LA TImes web page, or to Burt Preltsky’s web page…. you won’t find the mythical article or the fake quote from Feinstein. It’s stories like this that expose just how stoopid and gullible the American voter is…. and that’s why Gruber said the voter was stupid. Both sides of the aisle are boneheads.

        Consider this: “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” – Abraham Lincoln. In other words, the people are too stoooopid to figure out the truth, so it must be given to them.

      It’s true that Senator Feinstein did not say exactly these words. It was a discussion about a proposal submitted by Senator Cronyn. However she misinterpreted the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) by atributting to Iraq War and she received a caustic rebuttal for that. But all being said I totally agree with the tone of the article and the “strange urge to elect obnoxious women to high office”in California. Let’s face it: they are obnoxious! And furthermore they all benefitted from their elected positions.

    Mr. Prelutsky as a veteran I can say there can be nothing lower then a snakes belly when someone speaks about veterans in such a way. I do have a few things in common with them. Two arms, two legs, ect. I do not understand why California has these people in office.

    I am a combat veterans who came home a complete mess because of my position at the time of an attack on one of our ships. It is bad enough to have ones family in a turmoil after returning home, but to come home to people like Feinstein, Pelosi and such is the ultimate in disgrace. “A nation is no better then the way it treats its veterans”.

    So true and so refreshing to read in a CA newspaper. I am so sick of the stupid, psycho women politicians we have in CA. Could CA finally get rid of these corrupt and hateful hags. Feinstein has stuffed enough taxpayer money in her & her husband’s pocket. If these women are the best CA can do, Californians should stop breeding.

    The criminal extortionist Krat machine has boxes of fake ballots stashed everywhere before the elections. They use them when needed in close elections. How else could these parasites get elected for what seems like 50 years straight. Talk about a banana republic. Kaliforniah is DINGBAT REPUBLIC.

    This is truly the most sexist thing I’ve ever read. Why must you attack their gender? Shouldn’t your problem be with their ideas and actions? To reduce them to simple babbling females just makes you look petty. Address the issues, not the fact that they are women. This is what you call a logical fallacy because you are trying to win an argument by proving an irrelevant point. They are women therefore we should be amazed that they can even form thoughts? No. They teach you not to do this in High School. Now, I could easily do what you have done and claim that your gross ignorance is because of your age or your gender (old and male – lack of attention to detail – self-centered) but I won’t. It doesn’t matter that you’re male, your argument is still offensive and wrong. It would be just as offensive and wrong if you were a female. Understand?

    I was sent a “FW” of this “NEWS” story this morning in an email by one of my Republican friends.

    But, unlike the majority, (if not ALL who posted a REPLY), I did the research to “Find the FACTS”…which unlike the FOX “Entertainment” Channel and the vast majority of Repubilcan’s, (mainly from States like, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, West Virginia and many other self-proclaimed” REBEL, deep southern States, whose literacy rates are among the lowest in the nation and who “must” watch FOX to formulate an opinion, only due to the fact they can’t READ a newspaper, if their tiny little towns could even print one)…ever bother to do…and the FACTS are this:

    1) Burt Prelutsky “is” a columnis for the LA Times.

    2) The article he wrote was NOT published in the LA Times, it was first published in a “Get Government Out of the Way” Internet BLOG on April 11, 2013.
    (So check your sources or just READ the Title)

    3) What Feinstien said was taken purely out of context…Kinda llke the “title” of Prelutsky’s article that have most of you believing that it was actually published in the LA Times.

    Now, I’m not enamoured with either Political Party – they both have their “LIFETIME” appointments in Congress… (If you don’t like it, VOTE for “Term Limits”)…but I do make an effort to see “both” sides before posting some inane comment.

    At the end of the day, our Government, is for the most part, made up of a dysfunctional group of narcisistic politicians whose decisions are formed by the big corporations in their respective states who PAY to get them elected and whose agenda, once in office, is to “pander” to these groups as opposed to doing what’s in the best interest of their constituency.

    A prime example of this would be cutting government programs for the poor. The states listed above have the most “per-capita” recipients! And these “SHEEPLE” would be the first to complain to their elected officials, if their government funding was cut!

    Look, both parties have, The Good, Bad & The Ugly”…but these posts/comments are just “Bad & Ugly”.

    Most of these comments appear to be written by people who are educated and well read…but even Comic Books have have “some” intelligent following.

      Kevin… The title does NOT say that it was published in the LA Times, it’s saying that the writer is from the LA Times, and I think there’s a lot more of us out there that figured that out than you give credit. I lived in the “south” for a short time and the people I met were not illiterate and didn’t have to watch a tv channel to garner an opinion. You on the other hand.. well, I won’t be nasty like you and say anything rude to or about you. I’ll just leave it as is except to say there are some truly intelligent and articulate people living in the south. Now I don’t watch Fox News myself except when I’m at my sister’s because her husband enjoys watching it, but they seem to be a lot more factual than many of the news stations I have watched!

Is there just a few of us left in California capable of thinking for ourselves and seeing them for what they are??? I’ve given up watching any movie where the lead is a liberal democrat! Needless to say I don’t watch many movies. LOL I’ve written to Feinstein and Boxer. I received only ONE response from Boxer’s office but I have to admit I’ve received several from Feinstein’s. And hers say.. not in these exact words of course, but pretty darn close… “Thanks for contacting me. Your opinion is important to me. But I know better than you, what is good for you. ” I’ve pretty much given up writing her any more cause she doesn’t listen to her constituents anyway.

    Author Ayn Rand’s description of a dying, liberal America — read ATLAS SHRUGGED! — was right on target. Phony humanists like Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer and Waters remind me of the character Ivy Starnes from her brilliant novel, whose alleged, loving concern for the downtrodden belied her deep-seated hatred for mankind, especially for the strong…the able…the productive…the intelligent…the wealthy. If Rand were alive today, she’d have branded that four-member cult of stupidity KILLERS OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.

    Thanks, Anna, for a well expressed and logical comment. I’m not from California (from Wisconsin, actually) but I’m depressed at the low level of discourse that the majority of those writing engage in. It is as repulsive as Burt Prelutsky’s original slanderous misrepresentation of Diane Feinstein’s dialogue during the hearing. You don’t have to like Feinstein to be offended when she is treated in the fashion Prelutsky treats her. I’ve suddenly developed a major mis-trust of the L.A. Times for even printing such a piece.

    And as for Snopes, I’m still waiting for any of those who claim it is biased or inaccurate to give one good example of an inaccurate article on Snopes. Articles that contained inaccuracies which were later acknowledged and corrected don’t count, of course.
