An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 17 May 2008
Sad to say, I didn’t get any pictures except for this one of Governor Bobby Jindal, who, I might add, is an extremely impressive young man.
I see great things for him in the future. Matter of fact, a comment that Wayne LaPierre made while introducing him tells me this is a very common opinion. Something to the effect of he’d make a great choice as VP. Interesting idea!
As you can tell, I was having some technical difficulties with the camera. That might have something to do with the fact that I really did drop it. I didn’t mean to, but some pictures just aren’t coming out very well, so I finally gave up this evening.
We sat with some really terrific folks, and if they happen to stop by my little corner of the ‘net, it was a real pleasure to meet all of you!
Now, for the “Royal Command”!
If ever, EVER, you get the opportunity to hear Glen Beck speak in person, whatever you do, TAKE that opportunity!
I’m so extremely serious! I’ve heard a lot of speeches, but I don’t think I’ve ever been so impressed by what a person had to say as I was tonight! He said what we all, on the right, have been thinking a lot lately. When did it things change from the government answering to “We The People”? What makes D.C. think they can run the health care system, when they can’t even balance a checkbook? What part of ILLEGAL is so hard to understand? Why is that there are cities in this country that think they can pick and choose which parts of the Constitution they will follow? Absolutely amazing!
Right now, I’m utterly exhausted, so I’m going to crawl my ol’ self into bed, and pray my feet will stop throbbing by the morning!
Oh yeah, and Tom Selleck was there too! Heh. Damn, he’s still one fine lookin’ man!
I am so seriously annoyed. Jr stood in line for almost 2 hours to get Glen Beck to sign her book. She was so excited! She got up there, shook his hand, I had the camera at the ready, and that little twirp that was “helping” him got right in front of the shot!
Later, I did manage to get this shot though.
Ok, now it’s time for the Mr and I to attempt to get all decked out for the big shindig tonight!
Y’know, that media pass sure has come in handy!
We were lucky enough to be walking by when there was a commotion. We heard that it was Glen Beck talking to Ted Nugent. There was this LONG LINE that folks were standing it to get Nugent’s autograph, and I just flipped this badge and cut through. How cool is that?
It’s not a great picture, but I’m not the only who thought this guy looked a bit like Alice Cooper without the makeup. Jr said there was a woman chasing him down the hallway trying to get an autograph, but he and his bud ducked into a private room. So, who knows….maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t.
I’ll be perfectly honest, I have absolutely NO idea what any of these things are. Heh.
I learned yesterday that my very favorite all time aunt died on Thursday. If we were in Tennessee, I’d rush to Dallas for the funeral. But since we had short notice, and we’re in Louisville, it is logistically impossible.
What made Aunt Betty my very favorite? It was her gentle soul, her quite sense of humor, and her unbelievable patience.
Rest in Peace dear lady!

Saudi Arabia granted President Bush’s request for an increase in oil production yesterday, while the Bush administration heeded calls from Congress to temporarily stop filling the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
Both moves are aimed at easing tight world oil supplies, but the relatively small steps failed to prevent oil’s ascent to another record high over $127 a barrel in New York trading before settling at $126.29 yesterday. Analysts expect pressure on oil prices to remain high as China increases its consumption of diesel to fuel rescue efforts and rebuilding after a devastating earthquake.
If the idea is to end dependency on foreign oil, why is anyone asking the Saudis, or anyone else to increase THEIR production? Why aren’t we increasing OURS?
UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown has condemned Burma’s military government for not allowing international aid to reach the victims of Cyclone Nargis.
Mr Brown told the BBC that a natural disaster had been turned into a “man-made catastrophe” because of the negligence of the ruling generals.
Nothing like stating the obvious! This is what those who suffer from SMTPS (short man, tiny penis syndrome) do!
Democrat Barack Obama lumped Republican John McCain in with the unpopular Bush administration on Friday for advancing a “naive and irresponsible” foreign policy, attempting to turn the tables in a presidential election battle in which his own national security credentials have been challenged. Obama also hinted that were McCain president, he would continue the policies currently followed by the Bush administration, and added that terror groups like Hamas and Al Qaida have grown because the US under Bush “took … [the] eye off the ball in Afghanistan.”
Is he freaking kidding? “Naive”? One of the few people in the cesspool called D.C. who are aware of just how big the dangers are form terrorist is Bush. If anyone is naive, it’s that clown named Hussein! The extremely public dissent from the lefties at the Capital is what has emboldened groups like Hamas and al Qaeda, and the Iranians. What a complete dick!
President of Iraq Jalal Talabani Friday evening ruled out the US allegations against Iran and alleged involvement in sending weapons to Iraq.
Speaking in a televised interview with the Al-Arabia TV of Iraq, Talabani said he, as the president of Iraq, did not agree the claims made by some military officers in this regard.
President Talabani said that comments made by certain persons were their personal ideas and not the official position of the Iraqi government.
And I suppose evidence to the contrary means absolutely nothing, right? They can all blow themselves to whatever hell is reserved for the Religion of Pieces. I don’t give a happy crap!
A day after the state Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples should have the right to marry in California, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Friday that he supports the court’s decision even though his personal view is that “marriage is between a man and a woman.”
The only thing he’s “terminating” now, is civilized society!
President Bush pivoted to the Arab side of the Mideast peace dispute on Saturday, but he may well get a less glowing reception than he did in Israel earlier this week.
Pivoted? What do they mean by “pivoted”? He’s now on the side of the terrorists money men?
Bush is seen in the Arab world as tilting much too far toward Israel. Comments Friday from Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal about Bush’s speech suggested that had not changed.
“We are all aware of the special U.S.-Israeli relation and its political dimensions,” he said. “It is, however, important also to affirm the legitimate and political rights of the Palestinian people.”
He also sharply criticized Israel for the “humanistic suffering weighed upon the West Bank and Gaza Strip population” of Palestinians. He said Israel’s “continued policy of expanding settlements on Palestinian territories” undermines the peace process.
The Pallies undermine their own peace by their actions. Are the Israelis suppose to financially support them no matter what they do, like wayward children? I don’t bloody well think so. If there is ever going to be peace, which there isn’t, the Pallies need to stand up on their own two feet, and start producing something other than homicide bombers and hatred.
A West Tennessee teacher accused of sleeping with a student resigned Friday.
According to investigators, Tracy Hinson — a chemistry teacher at Lake County High School in Tiptonville, Tennessee — traded inappropriate and intimate text messages with a 16-year-old boy.
Though a judge dismissed some of Hinson’s misdemeanor charges this week, prosecutors are planning to build a stronger criminal case against the teacher.
What is it with these teachers? I just don’t get it!
Joshua Packwood knows what it’s like to be a minority.
This weekend he’ll be the first white valedictorian to graduate from the historically black, all male Morehouse College in the school’s 141-year history.
Perhaps there has been some forward progress in race relations.
