Pelosi Vineyards 'State of Emergency' after Earthquake Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Aug 24, 2014, 11:51 PM

 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Ca.) is counting on President Barry Obama to declare a "state of emergency" after a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck Napa Valley over the weekend, so that the multi-millionaire grapes tycoon with a vineyard in the region can receive big bucks in federal subsidies. 

NewsMax reports that, "The San Francisco Bay Area's strongest earthquake in 25 years struck the heart of California's wine country early Sunday, igniting gas-fed fires, damaging some of the region's famed wineries and historic buildings, and sending more than 120 people to hospitals."

Meanwhile, Nancy's husband, Paul, is waging a public relations war against the Castelluci Family to prevent them from building a winery in the Pelosi hometown of St. Helena. 

According to Napa Valley Register, "Napa County resident Paul Pelosi, the husband of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, has been organizing neighborhood opposition to a proposed 30,000-gallon winery project that’s planned for the corner of Silverado Trail and Zinfandel Lane near St. Helena."

Ironically, Napa County resident are not represtended by Nancy Pelosi, but instead Mike Thompson, a Democrat, serves as their Congressman for the 5th District.

my biggest regret about the tragic quake in Napa is that Nancy wasn't standing under a stack of wine cases when the quake struck.

This bunch of LIBERALS may have to learn "what is good for the goose may be good for the gander" & have to "lump it" like a lot of other farmers & ranchers have had to during their time of trial because of drouth, ethanol causing corn prices to soar, etc!...
