An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 22 May 2008
So what does my brother in law send me? Pictures of flippin’ snakes! And not just regular ol’ snakes…..RATTLE snakes!
May have posted this before, or read it a while back or whatever, but since it IS funny…..
A teacher in Elmira, New York asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans.
Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.
The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different…again.
Little Johnny said, ‘Because I’m not an Obama fan.’
The teacher asked, ‘Why aren’t you an Obama fan?’
Johnny said, ‘Because I’m a Republican.’
The teacher asked him why he’s a Republican.
Little Johnny answered, ‘Well, my Mom ‘s a Republican and my Dad’s a Republican, so I’m a Republican.’
Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, ‘If your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot, what would that make you?’
With a big smile, Little Johnny replied, *’That would make me an Obama fan.’

A repost from Texas Fred’s:
I Am Your Worst Nightmare. I am a BAD American.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some mid level governmental functionary, be it Democratic or Republican!
I believe that owning a gun doesn’t make you a killer, I believe it makes you a smart American.
I believe that being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything.
I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, do it in English.
I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.
My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and whoever canceled Jerry Springer.
I don’t hate the rich. I don’t pity the poor.
I know wrestling is fake and I don’t waste my time watching or arguing about it.
I’ve never owned a slave, or was a slave, and I WILL NOT pay reparations for something that I didn’t do.
I haven’t burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! So, shut up already.
This is AMERICA, I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!
I want to know which church it is exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution. Can I get an AMEN on that one?
I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you’re running from them, because if you’re not guilty, WHY are you running?
I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you’re breaking the law, regardless of what color you are, that’s the job we’re paying them to do.
And, no, I don’t mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it’s good, it lets you know it’s really me.
I’m proud that the word ’God’ is written on my money.
I believe that if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don’t want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.
I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making ‘donations’ to their cause.
I believe that it doesn’t take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.
I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the law makers think.
I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed to fly over American soil! If you want to fly the flag of YOUR nation at the top of a flag pole, by all means, do so, IN YOUR OWN NATION! And if the American flag is NOT your flag, then this is NOT your nation
If this makes me a BAD American or causes you to classify me as a racist, then yes, I’m a BAD American and a racist.
If you’re a BAD American, if you share the same feelings and beliefs that I do, please, copy and post this on your web site for everyone to see.
We want our country back! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Congressman Trent Franks (R-Arizona) is not backing down from his contention that “there will be dancing in the streets among terrorist groups around the world” if Barack Obama is elected president.
Franks says his assertion is true and speaks to a critical debate that must be had. “I think it was one of the leaders of Hamas who’s already said that he openly supports Obama,” he notes. “And we saw that when Nancy Pelosi became speaker of the House and the Democrats took over the Congress — there was actually dancing in the streets among Islamist groups in the world.”
So while some might be upset that he has the courage to express those sentiments, Franks points out that “you can’t say that it isn’t true.”
Why is it that the left always gets its knickers in a twist when the obvious truth is stated? I reckon they just don’t like the truth, or can’t see the truth, or that particular truth is exactly what they are hoping for, but don’t want the “masses” to know.
Beirut’s death struggle ends amid a sea of Western indifference and U.N. incompetence. A deal struck Wednesday in Qatar gives Hezbollah the control it seeks. Welcome to Hezbollahstan.
Why would the Useless Numnuts lift a finger to help Lebanon? They WANT democracies to fall to the terrorists.
It is a victory for the Iranian-created, -financed and -armed terrorist organization that before 9/11 was responsible for killing more Americans — including 241 troops in their Beirut barracks in 1983 — than any other group. It is the stalking horse of Iran’s quite-mad president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Why haven’t we been backing up Lebanon? Why have we allowed Iran to run roughshod over every reasonably peaceful Middle East country? WHY DIDN’T WE DESTROY HEZBOLLAH?
The deal also green-lights the election of the army chief, Gen. Michel Suleiman, as head of state. He emerged as a compromise choice when those who insisted on a clearly anti-Syrian candidate relaxed their opposition. He’s on good terms with Hezbollah and was believed to have the tacit consent of Syria for the presidency. He was appointed to his post in 1998, when Syria ran the show during its decades-long occupation.
My grandparents must be spinning in their graves! The had to leave Lebanon because of the Muslim terrorism at the end of the 19th century. This is not a new thing. We just have more information at our fingertips. Why are we failing to recognize the threats BEFORE the damage is done?
Hezbollah has kept its weapons in violation of U.N. Resolutions 1559 and 1701. Its leader, Hassan Nasrallah, said the private network was “the most important part of the weapons of the resistance,” adding that Hezbollah had a duty to defend those weapons. Under this deal, the terrorist outfit gets to keep them.
The only people who still take the UN seriously are the leftist “one world” types. To everyone else, they are a joke. A dangerous joke to freedom, but a joke, none the less.
The U.S. must take some blame. In 2003, Congress passed the Syria Accountability Act, but Syria hasn’t been held accountable for anything, not even for having a secret nuclear weapons program.
Give me a break. Words without actions are just that….words, that do nothing more than create CO2 emissions.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently made a pilgrimage to Damascus to kiss the ring of Syrian thug Bashar Assad. Expect a President Obama to follow, a stop on the road to Tehran. Any Lebanese government decision must now be approved by Hezbollah, presumably after it’s been run past Tehran and Damascus.
Thanks Queen Nanny, for giving the pigs what they want…….a U.S. giving the appearance of bowing to their whims. ‘Preciate that. And putting Hussein in the Oval Office would all but insure a defeat of a once great nation.
In Lebanon, political power has grown out of the barrel of Hezbollah’s guns. Those who would negotiate with Iran keep feeding the Islamofascist tiger, hoping it will eat us last.
Make no mistake, if Hussein is elected, and takes us over that cliff, be prepared to either lose your head, or submit.
The Texas attorney general’s office has created a new parenting curriculum that will be required in every public high school this fall. It will cover everything from the legalese of paternity to dealing with relationship violence.
State officials say the goal is twofold: They want to teach teenage parents their legal rights and they want to show other students the difficulties of being a parent in hopes that they’ll wait to have children.
They should be teaching the concept of shame, instead of legalese!
The House easily overrode President Bush’s veto of a $307 billion farm bill last night in what appeared to be the most significant legislative rebuff of Bush’s presidency. But a legislative glitch is likely to force embarrassed Democratic leaders to pass the bill all over again today — and prompt a second showdown with Bush next month.
The problem came when a House clerk mistakenly dropped a whole section dealing with trade policy from the 673-page bill before it was sent to the White House. Republican leaders argued last night that the House had overriden a veto on legislation that had never actually passed the House and Senate. For the sake of legislative integrity, Democratic aides said, Congress is likely to start the whole process again.
“Why yes, let us waste more taxpayer money, and once again, prove how powerful we are!” WEASELS!
In the most important parliamentary by-election since Labour came to power, the voters of Crewe and Nantwich will deliver their verdict on the Brown government. Many Labour MPs fear a humiliating defeat which would spark an open debate about whether Mr Brown is the right man to lead the party into the general election.
He’s always seemed a tad wishy washy to me, but then I don’t really understand the Brit’s system of gubmint, so how, or why they elected such a linguine spined guy is beyond me.
Maria, one of the Christian singer’s six children, was taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt Hospital, which confirmed the death, according to Laura McPherson, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The 5-year-old was hit by an SUV driven by her teenage brother, she said. Police did not give the driver’s name.
The teen was driving a Toyota Land Cruiser down the driveway of the rural home about 5:30 p.m. and several children were playing in the area, McPherson said. He did not see Maria in the driveway before the vehicle struck her, she said.
I can not even begin to imagine the anguish. My prayers are will the family.
Senator John McCain of Arizona is set to meet with at least three potential running mates at a gathering at his ranch this weekend in Arizona, suggesting that he is stepping up his search for a vice-presidential candidate as the Democratic contest heads toward a conclusion, according to Republicans familiar with Mr. McCain’s plans.
Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, and Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts and a onetime rival for the Republican nomination, have all accepted invitations to visit Mr. McCain at his ranch in Sedona, Republicans said.
Well, if he doesn’t find himself a CONSERVATIVE running mate, he might as well hang it up. Me, I’d pick Jindal! That’s one smart cookie!
The General Assembly passed legislation Wednesday to help students hold on to their lottery scholarships, and added tuition aid for veterans and health-care workers.
After a day of uncertainty and back-room wrangling, lawmakers from both parties in the House and Senate agreed late in the afternoon on a compromise bill aimed at preventing HOPE scholarship recipients from losing their scholarships if their grade point averages dip.
How many kids get to keep their ‘scholarships’ if their grades start to slip? Not many, I’m fairly sure. So, why is the state of Tennessee willing to lower the bar? Why, it might hurt their little feeling if they’ve been out partying too much instead of cracking the books!
Graham says it was a mistake for Bush to do the interview because Engel has stated publicly that war should be illegal. And Bush should have known, argues the MRC official, that the interview would have been approached from that angle.
He also notes that NBC refused to air a portion of the interview in which President Bush told Engel the premise of his question was wrong. Graham says NBC treats Obama like a best friend, but treats President Bush as if he is the enemy.
Is anyone even surprised that NBC sucks? If you’ve been paying attention, you wouldn’t be, well, unless you suffer from BDS, which seems to have branched out in every direction now. Even what supposedly passes for entertainment shows a blatant agenda. Since they aren’t renewing Leno, I guess we won’t be watching them at all.
It seemed like an almost literal answer to their prayers. When two New Zealand pilots ran out of fuel in a microlight airplane they offered prayers and were able to make an emergency landing in a field – coming to rest right next to a sign reading, “Jesus is Lord.”
Yep! The Lord is still giving us miracles, we just have to look for them.
Prosecutors said the payments were bribes for Ford’s votes and influence in a development project on the south loop of Interstate 240, removal of a city billboard moratorium and the replacement of the chairman of the Board of Adjustment.
In a meeting Oct. 2, 2006, at Ford’s Whitehaven mortuary, he pockets $1,900 and tells Cooper, “I’ll drum me up seven (votes) or I’ll make someone walk out.”
100% male bovine excrement! Hopefully, they’ll get him in the NEXT trial in August.
The state of Alaska will sue to challenge the recent listing of polar bears as a threatened species, Gov. Sarah Palin announced Wednesday.
She and other Alaska elected officials fear a listing will cripple oil and gas development in prime polar bear habitat off the state’s northern and northwestern coasts.
Palin argued that there is not enough evidence to support a listing. Polar bears are well-managed and their population has dramatically increased over 30 years as a result of conservation, she said.
Putting the polar bears on the “endangered list” when the numbers of bears has actually increased, makes NO sense, whatsoever! If we ever get some strong leadership in D.C. (and I’m NOT holding my breath), perhaps all the whiners will be relegated to the basements, and attics, where they belong.
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
