Occupy Clowns Plan Protest Near Pelosi’s Lavish Hawaii Hotel

Maybe they can go personally occupy Nancy Pelosi’s $10,000 per night spread. Why not? She owns this movement after all.

Pelosi’s trip coincides with a planned protest by the Hawaii Island occupy groups near her hotel.

Jim Albertini, a well known community organizer, who has held several local protests, writes on his blog: “I just got a report from Kona. There are about 30 private half billion dollar jets parked at the Kona airport. I’m up for a drive over to protest at Kukio and possibly other 1% gated communities just north of the airport. Any others interested in joining me? The 1% pay only a little more to park their jet as it costs us to park our cars overnight. Something is wrong with that picture.”

In an email to supporters this week, Albertini confirmed he organized a protest with “all Hawaii Island Occupy groups” this Saturday, December 31, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the road just south of the Four Seasons/Hualalai Resort.

Albertini writes: “It’s time to say to the 1% — PAY YOUR SHARE!   At a time when 26% of children on this island are food insecure, this kind of extravagant wealth of the jet setters is SHAMEFUL! Ring in the New Year with friends who care for the people and the planet!”

Pelosi, who reported a 62 percent jump in her wealth earlier this year from $20 million to $35.2 million, is one of the wealthiest lawmakers in the country. Besides the $223,500 a year she made as House Speaker, and the $193,400 she now makes as House Minority leader, she and her husband Paul have made a number of savvy investments in Apple, the United Football League, as well as in real estate and in a capital management company.

Despite her wealth that easily launches Pelosi into the so called “1 percent”, she has been a vocal supporter of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which claims to represent the “99 percent” and protests against the “1 percent” or America’s most wealthy people.

What I’d like to know is who on earth has a half-billion dollar private jet?

    Not that I’d care to give those buffoons one iota of support, but it is quite humorous to see them go after one of the politicians who were so quick to jump to their side, no matter how hypocritical it was of her to do so. Almost as fun as imagining the absolute agony she endured when she had to hand over the Speakership to the evvviiiilllllll Republicans.

    Of course, it’s not like it really bothers her much. She’s already made herself disgustingly rich with her power over policy and insider info that would land any normal citizen enormous fines and jail time.

    I believe that King Fahd has one that’s close, a totally decked out Airbus 380. I don’t know what the Sultan of Brunei has.
