couldn’t you have jet-pooled or something?

It’s not often I have anything good to say about politicians, but I’m willing to reconsider for Rep. Gary Ackerman. as quoted by CNN:

“There is a delicious irony in seeing private luxury jets flying into Washington, D.C., and people coming off of them with tin cups in their hand, saying that they’re going to be trimming down and streamlining their businesses,” Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-New York, told the chief executive officers of Ford, Chrysler and General Motors at a hearing of the House Financial Services Committee.

“It’s almost like seeing a guy show up at the soup kitchen in high hat and tuxedo. It kind of makes you a little bit suspicious.”

He added, “couldn’t you all have downgraded to first class or jet-pooled or something to get here? It would have at least sent a message that you do get it.”

  1. The thing that makes me laugh is when they have Global warming and environment summits in Hawaii! Hello! Everyone ends up with a giant carbon footprint to get to a conference to decide how to reduce carbon footprints lol.

    Have it in a central location like the middle of the states like Colorado or Nebraska – they are in the middle! Then again maybe Spain thats kinda in the middle of the world (if you look at a map like the one on a certain search engine map lol)
