Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (15 December 37 – 9 June 68) born Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus, also called Nero Claudius Caesar Drusus Germanicus.

While it may or may not be fact, it is a belief that has lasted over two thousand years: Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Well, that is what is happening in Washington, District of Columbia, right now. Especially in the White House and Halls of Congress. I feel it incumbent upon me to laud one person each week for fiddling while the United States of America burns. Some might argue that the burn is intentional and set by liberals and Democrats beginning with the inauguration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933.

The first Weekly Hero was the president of the United States of America (hereinafter described as the US&A), Barack Obama for reasons outlined March 6, 2009.

This week the Nero Hero of the Week is Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro (Patty D? Patsy? No that's us) Pelosi (born March 26, 1940) one of the richest members of the Senate. (Worth around $20 million a couple years ago.) Representing the Union of Socialist San Francisco and like-minded left-wing socialists and apparently a politician for life, she's been elected 11 times as well as being a second generation Congressperson, sister to a politician and sister-in-law to a politician. Can't these Pelosis work for a living? Oh, yes, she's also the first non-male-gendered Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives.
Nancy Patty is working hard (if you can believe it, three whole days a week) to be reelected, electing and reelecting Democrats in general and liberalizing everything in sight. She's using our hard- really hard-earned pay for taxes to do so, a trillion here, a trillion there. And she wants more, but not all of our money, only as much as she deems "fair". A twenty-times-millionaire deciding how much of my money she gets for electing Democrats. All the while having a Gulfstream III (or several; in fact all of them the U. S. Air Force has) at her disposal. Isn't that queen-like? Life is good here in the US&A (for politicians).

As Vice President of the US&A Joe Biden informed everyone, Aging Queen Nancy Patty's luxury jet(s) will require hard-working American tax payers (that's us), to buy thousands of gallons of expensive jet fuel for her every week. She flies home to California on a whim for only $60,000 each way! As Honest Joe noted, "Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back" so there goes another $60,000. Weekly flights cost us at least $480,000 per month ($5,760,000 a year). And she complains that a plane isn't waiting for her, that the GIII isn't big enough to fly without stopping on the way at a gas station for more gas and, bye the bye that the war in Iraq is expensive. Oh yeah, she also flies around the world, too, from time to time. And yes, she's happily warming the globe!
Showing concern for the financial meltdown and high unemployment of her subjects, Aging Queen Nancy Patty stopped in its tracks an attempt to rein in automatic pay raises for members of Congress. Their latest pay raise of $4,700 took effect in January 2009 and brought congressional salaries to $174,000.

I wonder if the luxury jet is large enough for the lyre she must be playing while the US&A is burning. By the way, a lyre is like a small harp (sometimes played by small harpies), using a plectrum. Well, as Aging Queen Nancy Patty sung recently accompanied by a lyre: "Burn Baby Burn!" and take the free-enterprise system down with you. Who needs the capitalism when you have the government?

American Idol - The President Obama and Aging Queen Nancy Patty, are they liars playing lyres or what? Congratulations, Nero would be proud. To Aging Queen Nancy Patty Nero Hero of the Week II, Friday The Thirteenth (March, 2009).
