What a Shame:

Lordy .. I hope nothing happens to the Democrat plans to make Nancy Pelosi the minority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is going to be an absolute treasure trove of material.

She’s from San Francisco, you know. She represents a large part of San Francisco in the congress. San Francisco .. the city that just managed in 2002 to finally make it illegal to take a poop on a city sidewalk. Believe it or not .. there was huge debate over this measure.

Here’s some more news about San Francisco .. Pelosi’s base of operations. They had a Veteran’s Day parade there yesterday. The City of San Francisco forked over $13,500 for the parade. Now … let’s see how the Veterans rate with the leaders of San Francisco. Here are some of the grants the city made to other celebrations.

Brazilian Holiday Carnival $113,000

Samoan Flag Day $15,000

The San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Parade: $84,000

Chinese New Year Parade: $84,000

Cinco De Mayo (Mexican): $68,000

Columbus Day Celebration (Italian): $47,300

San Francisco Chinatown Autumn Moon Festival (Chinese): $30,300

St. Patrick’s Day (Irish): $29,500

Filipino American Arts Exposition: $22,000

Juneteenth Festival (a new African American holiday): $22,000

Oh … and for Memorial Day? A big whopping $5,000.
