Practice What You Preach

There is serious debate in Washington and other countries about whether burning fossil fuels affects meteorological events. First, let me state that I stand behind those who fight for freedom; freedom of speech is how we solve our problems.

We know that Judicial Watch, a public- interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Defense concerning the use of military jets by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. As House Speaker, Pelosi reportedly attempted to use an abundance of jets to fly a large number of people around.

I support those who practice what they preach. Ed Begley Jr. bought his first electric car back in the 1970s. He travels by bicycle or mass transit. The same cannot be said about Pelosi.

Rep. Pelosi, put up or shut up.
