An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 13 July 2008
Came across this at Real Debate Wisconsin. Looks like there’s been quite a bit of success already. This is not the same country I grew up in, and it’s NOT an improvement, contrary to what the lefties would like you to think.
1963 Communist Goals
The following was entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69) in 1963.
1) US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war
2) US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war
3) Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the US would be a demonstration of “moral strength”
4) Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5) Extension of long term loans to Russia and Soviet Satellites
6) Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination
7) Grant recognition of Red China, and admission of Red China to the UN.
8 ) Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the UN
9) Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the US has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress
10) Allow all Soviet Satellites individual representation in the UN
11) Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the UN as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo)
12) Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party
13) Do away with loyalty oaths
14) Continue giving Russia access to the US Patent Office
15) Capture one or both of the political parties in the US (Mission accomplished)
Whatcha wanna bet some lefty fur is gonna fly over this little item?
Yikes! Stop the ACLU has the info.
A note from Radarsite: If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this incredible cover from The New Yorker is worth an encyclopedia. Whatever their original intentions, whatever their motivation, whether ironical or not, this caricature hits the proverbial nail on its proverbial head. No single illustration could more perfectly convey the legitimate — I repeat, legitimate — fears and concerns that so many of us have about the prospects of an Obama Presidency. An Islamophile and a racist. What a great prospect for America’s future.
Well, they sure can’t blame the “right wing conspiracy” for this one.
As leader of the House of Representatives in the WORST Congress…..EVER, it’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go home, back to her grape vines and birkenstocks. It turns out there is someone, other than Mother Moonbat, running against her. A lady named Dana Walsh has taken on the challenge. The fact that anyone has the courage to take a stab (not literally you morons) at ridding the country of the oblivious Pelosi impresses the hell out of me!
It’s hard to tell exactly what type of person she is. Doesn’t matter, she NOT Queen Nanny! Perhaps if money started pouring in from all over the country to Ms Walsh’s coffer, it would send a HUGE message to Congress itself. “We don’t like you!”
Dang! No PayPal. Guess I’ll have to get off my butt and go get my wallet.
I quit eating at McDonald’s a LONG time ago. They USE to have REALLY good french fries, but once the food police got a hold of them, it was all down hill from there. So when I got an email from AFA to “boycott” McDonald’s, it was kind of moot. Then I read a column in the San Fransisco Chronicle. Well, now I know just how folks out there on the left coast feel about people like me. You know, Christaholics.
Totally Gay Happy Meals
It is the end of the nutball Christian right. Here is your proof. To go
Really classy headline there. A real eye catcher.
Here are a few snippets:
Did you know the AFA recently boycotted McDonald’s? That’s right, this once semi-powerful tub of right-wing brain-caulk recently declared a comestible fatwa against America’s foremost purveyor of toxic foodstuffs because, apparently, some high-ranking McD’s VP just joined the board of directors of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, which, to the AFA, somehow translates directly into free pink condoms and mind-controlling rainbow flags in every toxic God-fearing Happy Meal.
Did you read about that? No? Of course you didn’t. Here is why: No one cared. Well, that’s not quite true. McDonald’s sort of cared, just enough to write up a nice letter of response to Wildmon stating, in essence, that the AFA is a bunch of troglodytic knuckle-draggers with the sociosexual awareness of a fungal spore, and they should crawl away right now before God spanks them even harder with the 2×4 of total irrelevance.
I might be exaggerating. What they actually said was: Thank you, AFA, for your hateful consideration, but we support our employees’ right to join whichever socially responsible and positive groups they like. And thusly did McD’s flick the AFA away like a tick from a dog. Isn’t that amazing?
I wonder if this ranting loon is aware that there are MORE of us, than there are of him? Doubtful, since he lives in a tiny part of the country that is totally oblivious to the goings on in the other 49 states.
Go read the entire column. If you agree with him, what the hell are ya doin’ coming around here?
“That was great! Oh my God!” she yelled over the deafening roar
of dozens of high-performance engines revving up for the Firestone 200 IndyCar series.
McCain, wife of presidential hopeful John McCain, rode shotgun in the pace car before Saturday’s race, an outing that was part campaign outreach for the racing vote, part field trip for a longtime racing fan.
After a few laps around the track, McCain made a beeline for the garage, peppering raceway officials with questions about the track, the racing lineup and the cars.
Somehow, I just can’t picture Michelle Obama doing that.
Iran will “cut off the hands” of any enemy that attacks the country over its controversial nuclear programme, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned on Sunday.
“Before the enemies touch the trigger, Iran’s armed forces will cut off their hands,” Ahmadinejad said, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.
His comments came after Iran intensified tensions in the nuclear standoff by conducting two days of missile tests, which included the firing of a missile whose range it says includes Israel.
Which, to my understanding, is pretty piss poor! It’s like he’s really hoping someone will attack. What’s up with that? If the people of Iran don’t vote him out of office, then I’d say they agree with all the posturing, and should share his fate.
If the oil industry can learn how to extract oil and gas from the oil shale in a cost-effective manner, the United States could lay claim to oil reserves totaling, perhaps, 800 billion barrels — three times Saudi Arabia’s.
With oil prices riding high and conventional crude reserves ever more difficult to find and produce, companies including Shell Oil Co., Chevron Corp., Exxon Mobil Corp. and Schlumberger are conducting research on a resource that could forever alter the geopolitics of energy.
But Democrats have barred the Bureau of Land Management from leasing any federal land forcommercial-scale oil shale projects.
If anyone thinks the new term “progressive” accurately depicts the lefty loons in Congress and environazis, think again. Their mantra? Block progress at every turn!
U.S. and Iraqi negotiators have abandoned efforts to conclude a comprehensive agreement governing the long-term status of U.S troops in Iraq before the end of the Bush presidency, according to senior U.S. officials, effectively leaving talks over an extended U.S. military presence there to the next administration.
In place of the formal status-of-forces agreement negotiators had hoped to complete by July 31, the two governments are now working on a “bridge” document, more limited in both time and scope, that would allow basic U.S. military operations to continue beyond the expiration of a U.N. mandate at the end of the year.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday that Israel and the Palestinians have “never been as close” to a peace deal than today.
At the outset of his meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Paris, Olmert said the time would soon arrive when both the Palestinians and Israelis would have to make critical decisions.
Olmert praised the meeting which he said was characterized by an atmosphere of “dialogue.”
Just on what planet has Olmert been residing?
In an effort to head off any future flood-control pump construction in the Yazoo River basin, EPA administrators have expanded the number of central Mississippi counties covered by its proposed veto of the project from one to six.
EPA spokeswoman Laura Niles said public comment overwhelmingly called for the EPA to put a larger area off limits to the Corps of Engineers. The corps hopes to use the $220 million project to reduce flooding in the Yazoo River area during times of high water on the Mississippi River.
So, let me see if I’ve got this right. It’s better to destroy homes and drown people than it is to drain a swamp? Perhaps I’m reading it wrong?
The FDIC does not publish a list of trouble banks out of concern it could spur a bank run, which is what the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) said happened to Indymac in recent weeks.
The OTS, which oversaw IndyMac, criticized Sen. Charles Schumer, a Democrat from New York. The OTS claimed that a June 26 letter Schumer wrote to regulators questioning IndyMac’s viability prompted a run on the bank in which customers withdrew more than $1.3 billion prompting a liquidity crisis.
Way to go Chuckie! Wonder what else you can screw up. Hope the voters in NY remember his blatant disregard of others when voting time comes around.
Ted Thompson hasn’t ruled out the possibility of Brett Favre playing for the Green Bay Packers this season, but in what he described as a messy situation the general manager remained loyal to Aaron Rodgers as the team’s starting quarterback.
Oh, for the love of pete. Brett, GROW UP! Go couch some Pop Warner team, mentor some kids. You retired, leave it at that and do something useful with your life!
The spiritual leader of the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics was met by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Sydney Archbishop George Pell as he began his nine-day trip, his first here since becoming pontiff in 2005.
“We must awaken consciences,” he told reporters on the flight from Rome to Sydney.
“We have to face up to this great challenge and find the ethical capacity to change the situation of the environment for the good.”
I’m speechless. Reasonably intelligent men keep falling for this HOAX! Repeating myself….again: We do NOT control the planet! We can keep our trash picked up, find ways to reduce pollution, etc., but under no circumstances can we control the climate!
A volcano erupted Saturday with little warning on a remote island in Alaska, sending residents of a nearby ranch fleeing from falling ash and volcanic rock.
The Okmok Caldera erupted late Saturday morning, just hours after seismologists at the Alaska Volcano Center began detecting a series of small tremors.
Was Bush in Alaska? Heh.
Hamas yesterday rejected Prime Minister Salam Fayyad’s call for Palestinian reconciliation.Fawzi Barhoum, a spokesman of Hamas in Gaza, told reporters that Fayyad was implementing a US-Israeli agenda rather than Palestinian one.
He also described Fayyad as “the most dangerous man in the history of the Palestinian cause because of his US-backed ideas that he has tried to implement. Fayyad’s call is far away from any national proposal … he is a part of the Israeli and American equation.”
I suppose the “equation” had something to do with common sense, and a call to halt homicide bombings? I’m still baffled where Olmert comes up with the idea that “peace” is possible with trash like Hamas.
The impoverished OR Tambo District Municipality in Eastern Cape is spending two million rand on a birthday bash for former president Nelson Mandela, City Press reported.
Mandela turns 90 on Friday.
News on the spending was not received well by some public institutions, the Sunday newspaper said.
$259,905.65? For a birthday party? Couldn’t folks just bring covered dishes? That’s ridiculous!
The African Union has warned against any move to prosecute Omar al-Bashir, Sudan’s president, saying that a trial could jeopardise peace efforts in the Darfur region.
The International Criminal Court is expected to issue an arrest warrant for al-Bashir on Monday, the first against a sitting head of state.
Sudan has called for an emergency meeting of the Arab League to discuss the issue.
What’s to discuss? And what peace efforts? You mean those lavish parties the AU has been having to chat about the situation?
“Putin has made the Olympics his most important principle, and I’m sure he will never back down, whatever the problems,” says Boris Nemtsov, a Sochi-born former deputy prime minister. “But the whole enterprise is in danger of turning into a black hole. There is no transparency in the way the money’s being spent, corruption is rampant, and it’s making Sochi too expensive for most people to live in.”
Glitches include environmental hazards, looming cost overruns, citizens’ protests, and a threatened international boycott of the Olympics led by Georgia over Russia’s backing for Abkhazia.
Corruption in Russia. Go figure. (insert sarcasm) This should get interesting.
1 Timothy 1:5-8
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
