Posted on 04/06/2013 5:29:35 AM PDT by moneyrunner
Shes best known as a fanatic gun grabber and the Congresswoman from Colorados First District. She came to public attention when she made it crystal clear that the only thing she knew about guns was that she wanted to ban them. She believes gun magazines (the part that holds the bullets) are used up and thrown away once the bullets are shot.
In a recent public forum she smirked and told a retiree that he shouldnt worry about defending himself because if he were attacked he should depend on the Denver cops (approximate wait time 17 minutes) and besides, hes probably going to be dead anyway.
Lets find out a little more about this live political hand grenade.
Shes married to a Super Lawyer named Lino S. Lipinsky de Orlov according to his listing at his law firm McKenna Long & Aldridge. Between them they own two homes, one in Colorado and one in Washington DC. Both have first and second mortgages somewhere between $465,000 and $1,050,000.
Other than two homes and big mortgages, she reported that she and her husband have investment assets between $823,000 and $2,095,000. So lets call them millionaires. The couple add somewhere between $34,000 and $335,000 each year to their investments.
Note that thanks the very fuzzy disclosure requirements for members of Congress, its very hard to get a precise fix on just how rich these people are. Suffice it to say, they are among what the Occupy Movement would call the 1%.
She gets nearly 90% of her campaign contributions from PACs and large contributors. We will be looking into Diana more in the future. Any of her constituents are free to post comments.
Who is Diana Louise DeGette?
Answer: An idiot Liberal
It’s safe to say that she’s lived a sheltered life. She probably knows next to nothing about the maintenance required for her car. She probably has no concept of how farm agriculture products get from the farm, to her grocery. I doubt if she grasps any of the bits and pieces of a business and how it prospers or fails. You can figure there are thousands of them in politics and they mostly just fake voters into voting for them.
Frankly, it reminds me of the movie “Being There”, with Chancey.
She is just another stupid gynocrat in the vaginocracy.
DeGette’s sister used to report for the liberal rag, the Colorado Springs Independent.
The name of the paper always brought a chuckle out of me, because the people who read that paper swooned over dependence from government.
I’m sure that she knows one rule exceptionally well:
Tax the people who don’t vote for you and give the money to those who do.
every democrat including this diana Degette, Pelosi, Obama , frankenfienstien, Reid, the news anchors etc, are the enemy of freedom. all they do is fight for increasing government power and the corresponding decrease in individual rights and freedom that brings. don’t these idiot democrats realize that they are an individual too and that they are lessening their own rights as they empower stupid government?
What about her armed security detail? hmm?
“dont these idiot democrats realize that they are an individual too and that they are lessening their own rights as they empower stupid government?”
No. Because they all believe that the rules don’t apply to them. As Hillary said, “ We know what’s best for you”
>>She is just another stupid gynocrat in the vaginocracy.
There is definitely a pattern emerging: DeGette, Feinstein, Boxer, Lee, Wasserman-Schultz, Corinne Brown, Clinton, Napolitano, Sebillious, and the homosexuals Frank and Obama.
I believe that they are one and the same. Apparently she has a brain dead twin in kali by the name of nancy skinner from berkeley. She would like to ban the manufacture, import and sale of weapons that fire 10 bullets at a time. Gotta get me one of those 10 barreled guns.
I knew I was doing something wrong...
[Yes, this is sarcasm at it's finest]
Typical libtard - magazines are disposable commodities - just like condoms and babies...
Re Colorado assault on “assault weapons”
It would be helpful if a nationally syndicated talkie with outlets that are in or go into Colorado would grab all those silly audio sound bites comming out of these dumb Demo-Com Colorado legislators and expose them. Not only audio but if they have the “optics” put them on U tube as well as assemble a print presentation.
HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU WANT RESULTS
George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that hed left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.
He phoned the police, who asked Is someone in your house?
He said No, but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.
Then the police dispatcher said All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available.
George said, Okay.
He hung up the phone and counted to 30.
Then he phoned the police again.
Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you dont have to worry about them now because I just shot them. and he hung up.
Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the Policemen said to George, I thought you said that youd shot them!
George said, I thought you said there was nobody available!
You know you are living in a collapsing republic when “snide, arrogant and stupid” people in government represent the rule and not the exception.
She is also first and foremost a fascist pig. She’s part of the NO GUNS NO GOD NO BABY crowd who imagine themselves to be superior to everyone.
She probably saw some fast reloading demo where the magazine falls on the ground and another is inserted before it lands and just assumed that that is how it is done for real, just let it hit the dirt and walk away from it. In other words she assumed and as the old saying was fifty years ago down South, “when you assume you make an ass out of u and me.”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKlnMwuCZso ~ The woman sounds like someone with a passing familiarity with electronically fired weapons but without the sort of background to know these are advanced prototypes not in production and hardly common!
Is she the same yo-yo that said the movie theater shooting proves that having freedom to carry weapons doesn't stop thing because nobody in the theater pulled their gun to stop the guy - while ignoring that the theater was posted as not allowing guns? I wonder if anyone pointed out that the problem was that the theater didn't allow weapons so any law-abiding person would not have brought a weapon in...
Local talk show host, Peter Boyles, called her “vagina” (instead of Diana) DeGette on his show a while back. What an uproar. he did it repeatedly and laughed at the so-called free speech Marxists that called for his firing. Boyles is the best local talk show host in the Denver area.
Wrong!An IDIOT,RICH LIBERAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Married to a super Lawyer.
Maybe he is a supper lawyer and a letter got dropped.
Impressive. I wonder if burglars and armed robbers will ever hit her home and steal her stuff? It’s probably full of expensive stuff and both of them are away most of the time. It sounds like easy pickings for criminals.
I don’t recall the comment but she sounds stupid enough to have said it. She seems the perfect example of the sort who wouldn’t have sense enough to pour water out of a boot if the directions were printed on the heel but imagines herself to be the smartest person in any room. We have all known someone like that but there was a time when most people in government were not that stupid, now they seem to be quite common in government.
They all fall to hard ball.
My office is full of them.
These young women (30 - 40) who don’t know how to do a damned thing, come to us asking for our help. We graciously help them, and then mysteriously my (and my direct reports) work shows up in her project without attribution or so much as a hat tip. When the final project is presented, the acronyms are wrongly defined, and my work is represented as her own. When quizzed about them meaning of the charts, graphs, the formulas in spreadsheets and how the assumptions were created she cannot answer coherently.
She’s on the fast track to someplace in Supply Chain... and we in Engineering all shake our heads in complete disbelief at what we have enabled.
The government is full of these types.
Uh, what would you expect? She took over from the smarmy/snarky Patsy Schroeder almost 20 years ago.
You may use it where appropriate.
Is this a Jeopardy question?
