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.
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?
