An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

This is pretty good:
I personally believe it’s now or never for conservatives in the GOP. I say that knowing we’ve already lost the executive on paper, and knowing the NRCC and NRSC will do everything in its power to save the liberal incumbents. There is a reason I didn’t use “Democrats” in the previous paragraph; it’s a bipartisan rush to liberalism among those in government. Indeed, I’ve called them the bipartisan Party-In-Government.
While I can no longer give full support to the Republican Party, I can’t, in good conscious switch to the Libertarian, or definitely not the Democrat Party. I am a conservative, first and foremost! I base my vote on my values, which come from a much Higher Authority than the Congress of the U.S, or even the Constitution.
Two American war planes shelled two separate targets in Basra, entering the battle at the request of the Iraqi Army, which asked the American and British forces to strike two militia targets in the city, according to Maj. Tom Holloway, a spokesman for the British Army in Basra.
I thought the Brits pulled out?
Gaza’s Hamas rulers are asking the Arab states to cut ties with Israel, and support Hamas’s armed campaign against it instead.
About 2,000 people were attending a Hamas-organized rally in Gaza, as Arab leaders convened in Damascus ahead of the annual Arab summit.
Hamas leader Khalil al-Haya said Israel would only respond to violence. “The Zionist enemy doesn’t have a vision of peace. Only force… fighting and holy war works with [Israel].”
Now, tell me again how many homicide bombers Israel has sent into Gaza? How many bombs have they lobbed into their neighborhoods?
The shocking images of Sophie’s final moments were released as two teenagers were convicted of her murder.
Binge-drinking Brendan Harris, 15, and Ryan Herbert, 16, had drunk at least four pints of strong cider and downed shots of schnapps when they stamped on the head of the gap year student in a park in a quiet Lancashire town.
Yesterday it emerged that they had been found guilty of affray over a similar attack on a 16-year-old boy close to the same park four months earlier, but instead of being locked up were freed with a six-month community service order.
I don’t understand the negativity of the goth types, but I sure as hell don’t understand the type of person who would beat another human being to death because they are different. I hope those two excrement rot in prison, and burn in hell! Along with the feckless weasel who thought community service was a proper punishment for the previous attack!
Two people were rescued from Lake Ray Hubbard after their bass fishing boat capsized Friday morning.
Robert Lafaye, a spokesman for Rowlett Fire and Rescue said one person was transported to Rockwall Presbyterian Hospital and the second person was treated at the scene and released.
The cause of the accident was not immediately known, Mr. Lafaye said.
Fred, you weren’t out fishing this morning, were you?
Former state Sen. John Ford’s prison sentence will be served much closer to his Memphis home after the intervention of U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen.
Cohen told The Commercial Appeal on Thursday that his office’s request to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons to change Ford’s incarceration from a minimum-security federal-prison camp in Texas to a similar facility in central Louisiana was granted.
Excuse, but why should this weasel get special treatment? He’s a CRIMINAL! Just like any other CRIMINAL!
Consumers, jolted by a credit crisis, job cuts and soaring energy costs, turned in the weakest spending performance in 17 months in February, and consumers’ confidence weakened to the lowest in 16 years in March, fresh evidence that the risks of a recession are increasing.
The Commerce Department said Friday that consumer spending edged up 0.1% last month, the poorest showing since September 2006. And if the effects of inflation are removed, spending was flat in February, the third consecutive month of sluggish activity.
Shoot! Even I don’t spend as much in February as I do in other months. It’s cold, burnout from Christmas spending, lots of reasons.
Pastor of Foundry United Methodist Church, Snyder calls Jeremiah Wright “an outstanding church leader” who “has served for decades as a profound voice for inclusion in our society” and “has been a vocal critic of the racism, sexism, and homophobia which still tarnish the American dream.” He also deems Wright an “agent of racial reconciliation” who proclaims truths that make some white people uncomfortable. In comments posted on the website Democrats.org as well as his own church’s website, Snyder contends white Americans should listen to Wright rather than use his words to “polarize” and exclude people.
Jiminiy Crickets! Just what kind of ‘churches’ do the Dhimmis attend?? Wright’s words go beyond “excluding”! They were racist!
Police are investigating a shootout at a home in the 3700 block of Hyacinth in Hickory Hill that left one man dead and another injured.
The incident occurred around 3 a.m., police said, and early reports indicated it involved a resident of the home and an intruder. The resident was taken to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis in noncritical condition.
Police were releasing no further details this morning.
So, this makes the murder rate in Memphis….what now?
Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean, hoping to avoid a divisive fight on the convention floor, weighed in on the Clinton-Obama battle Friday by calling on all party superdelegates to declare whom they support by July 1.
Oh no! Please, by all means, continue! This has been way too much fun to watch for it to end.
The 10-year-old terminally ill daughter of a prison inmate who fought in the courts to be allowed to see her one last time has died of brain cancer, FOX News has learned.
Jayci Yaeger lived long enough to see her father, Jason Yaeger, earlier this week.
Jason Yaeger is serving a four-year sentence in a federal prison in Yankton, S.D., on drug charges and is scheduled to be released next year.
But he appealed to prison authorities and the courts â€” and even asked President Bush for clemency â€” to be transferred to halfway house closer to Nebraska in order to spend time with his daughter, who was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
On Wednesday, he was escorted by guards to the Lincoln hospice where Jayci lay in a hospital bed.
After several months of relative peace, and no sign of the evil fowl, this morning, they made their appearance!
Mental image: Short, fat ol’ woman running after evil birds in jammies. Blech!
I managed to get them into the woods, and they looked like they were headed home. Nope! No such luck! Then along comes our neighbor’s dog, Ugly. I love that dog! Â He got one treed, and the others took off in short order. I reckon he remembers how tasty their brothers were last Dec.
1 Timothy 2:5-6
5Â For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6Â Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
