An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 21 October 2008
Soon after Democrat strategist and feminist icon Larry Flynt releases his latest porn movie, “Nailin’ Palin,” which features an adult film actress portraying Gov. Sarah Palin, The Edwards Report is set to release our response: a porn film featuring an actor resembling vice presidential candidate Joe Biden, tentatively titled “Ridin’ Biden.” It will make history as the first porn where not just the actors but the entire nation gets screwed. The film will also feature Keith Olberman as Random Blonde Slut #3, marking his first foray into heterosexual pornography. Here are some excerpts from the script:
Democratic Rep. John Murtha said Monday some of his constituents in western Pennsylvania are “rednecks” and the entire region just five to 10 years ago was “really redneck.”
The comments come one week after he called his own constituents “racist” in an interview with his local newspaper.
“What I said, that indicted everybody, that’s not what I meant at all. What I mean is there’s still folks that have a problem voting for someone because they are black,” Murtha said.
Murtha said the history of southwestern Pennsylvania is teeming with racism. “This whole area, years ago, was really redneck,” he told WTAE-TV Pittsburgh.
Was this Murtha-ese for “I’m sorry I’m such an asshole”? I’m still waiting for this low life scum sucker to apologize for his comments about the Haditha Marines!
I am BEGGING the folks of Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional district….vote this slime ball OUT!
….they want someone else to pay for their stupidity! This guy, and all his thieving buddies, have got to go!

I just got my first robo call! Why on earth would the Democrat Governor of Tennessee, Bredesen, think I’d vote for Randy Camp? Wait a minute….we have an unlisted number. Shouldn’t be in ANYONE’s data base! Pfft! Stupid computers.
See what came in the mail today? My very own silent T.
Hmm…. Reckon I’m more inclined to think they’re just late.
I gotta tell ya, when I read this column in the Memphis Commercial Appeal, I was EXTREMELY surprised. Not that it was written, but that the paper actually allowed it to be seen on it’s website. The CA is notorious for it’s LEFT lean. Sometimes, I’m surprised if any of it’s reporters can stand up straight, the lean is so pronounced.
Remember the movie “The Sixth Sense,” where the boy saw dead people? Big deal!
I don’t know about the rest of the country, but we’ve seen dead people voting around these parts on election day before.
According to recent news reports, the ACORN organization has registered the same man 73 times and Mickey Mouse at least once. In Memphis, that’s routine, isn’t it?
Read the rest here.
Rummaging through this morning’s papers, I came across a letter to the editor from yesterday’s The Chattanoogan. I read through the letter and my temperature went up a couple of notches. The letter is, I’m assuming from a McCain supporter, but it sounds like an apologist.
I will NOT apologize for not voting for Barack Hussein Obama. Not gonna happen. And it has NOTHING to do with the color of his skin, or even his middle name. It has everything to do with his policies!
Are there some who won’t vote him because of his skin color? Growing up in the south, I’m fairly sure there are still some people who are hanging on to the views of the Democrats of old. Hmm….. Come to think of it, those are still the views of the Dhimmis. A black man, or woman, can’t acheive anything on their own, so ‘we must help him/her’, but don’t let him/her get TOO far, without being obliged (enslaved). The descendents of slaves (one of the ugliest periods of our history) are still being enslaved…..by the Democrat Party.
Does my not supporting a black man for president make me a racist? A whole lot of folks, fed by the MSM, seem to think so. Know what this tells me? That THEY are the racists….not me. Why, for the love of all that’s holy, should I vote FOR a person BECAUSE of his color? Isn’t that just as bad as voting against him for the same reason? He’s pro baby murder, pro surrender, pro taxes, pro big government, anti small business (hell, anti business totally), pro socialism/communism, anti Constitution, among many other things. So tell me, WHY should I support such a person? Why would ANY freedom lover support such a person? Just because he’s got a different skin tone that hasn’t been in the Oval Office? Pfft! I wouldn’t support him if he was white!
So, when I read a letter such as this, I go on the defensive, and my anger grows. The only people who are concerned with his color are the ones supporting him.
A federal prosecutor described the five defendants in the Fort Dix terrorism trial yesterday as considering themselves “holy warriors” intent on bringing jihad to America.
“Their motive was to defend Islam, their inspiration was al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden,” said deputy U.S. attorney William Fitzpatrick in opening arguments in U.S. District Court.
Perhaps someone should inform the defendants there’s NOTHING holy about murdering innocent people! This isn’t the battle ground…..yet. Wouldn’t do any good cuz evidently, Imams are real good at brain washing.
In respectful but pointed language, Justices John Paul Stevens and Clarence Thomas clashed over whether race could have influenced the imposition of the death sentence for Artemus Rick Walker, a black Georgia man convicted of killing a white bank vice president. The court rejects hundreds of cases each year, mostly without comment, and yesterday it declined to hear Walker’s appeal.
I read that more blacks are convicted of crimes than whites. Well, if you have more blacks committing crimes than whites, then yeah, you would definitely have more being convicted. When it comes to the death penalty, I don’t give a flip what color the animal is…black, white, purple. Murder is committed, justice should be done.
Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen headed for Germany on Monday to try to persuade auto parts suppliers to locate production facilities near a new Volkswagen plant being built in Chattanooga.
Bredesen, a Democrat, said he was leading the trade mission in hopes of attracting more automotive jobs within 100 miles of the plant.
“Volkswagen made it clear during our earlier discussions that they prefer to have suppliers located relatively proximate to them,” the governor said in a phone interview late last week.
The plant in Chattanooga is projected to cost about $1 billion and employ more than 2,000. Bredesen said he sees little chance that the current economic downturn could affect VW’s plans for the plant because the German automaker is making a very long-term investment.
Most of the time, I’m not all that crazy about Bredesen, but he does make the effort to bring businesses into Tennessee…I gotta give him that. This is a very business friendly state when it comes to taxes. More states should figure that out. Lower taxes, more business. Hey! Bubba H! You hear that????
The U.S. Federal Reserve on Tuesday launched a new facility to fund purchases of certificates of deposit and commercial paper from money market mutual funds in the latest step to provide liquidity to strained financial markets.
“By facilitating the sales of money market instruments in the secondary market, the MMIFF (Money Market Investor Funding Facility) should improve the liquidity position of money market investors, thus increasing their ability to meet any further redemption requests and their willingness to invest in money market instruments,” the Fed said in a statement.
And so it grows! More bureaucracy. More gubmint employees paid by your tax dollars. I hope people realize that we no longer call the shots. D.C. has given away our right to self govern. Bush has already started the ball rolling towards socialism. Once freedom is lost, it’s really hard to get it back. I hope people are ready, because we’re going to have to literally fight to regain control.
On the call, the diplomats said “they remain committed to the dual-track strategy and will remain in close contact on developments over the coming days and weeks,” said deputy State Department spokesman Robert Wood. He would not discuss details of the conversation.
The dual-track strategy is the main element of a slow-moving pressure campaign to persuade Iran to give up objectionable parts of its nuclear program. It would offer to Iran incentives to stop enriching uranium but threatens sanctions if Teheran should continue to refuse, which it has done thus far.
The Iranians are not going to give up any part of their nuclear ambitions. Ahmadinnerjacket has already stated his intentions. Why won’t anyone believe him? Criminy!
One stunned passenger said: “We couldn’t believe what we were seeing. The pilot was frog-marched off the aircraft.
“A couple of police officers stormed on to the plane as we were all sitting down and went straight for the cockpit.
“We didn’t have a clue what was happening and we were kept waiting on the plane for hours.
“It is horrifying to think we were apparently so close to being flown thousands of miles by somebody who could have been drinking.
For the life of me, I can’t imagine why anyone would think they could fly a plane soused! Why do people believe that they are capable of doing the same thing drunk, just as well as when they are sober? It doesn’t work that way, and I’d really like to smack these types of people. Plain, car, four wheeler….any kind of machinery. Doesn’t matter! Your reflexes are NOT as good. REALITY SNAP! I’m starting to think that all pilots should take a breathalizer before they get anywhere near a plane! And the passengers should have been let off the plane while they were looking for a new pilot!
If imitation is one of the most sincere forms of flattery, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama should be blushing right about now.
Councilman Nat Bates has produced posters with the oval Obama campaign logo and “Bates and Obama” in an effort to compete with nine other candidates for three open seats on the council.
Bates defended his campaign strategy, saying the placards were his way of touting support for Obama’s presidential bid.
I suppose if a local candidate wants to be associated with socialism, then that would be the way to do it. But this is San Fransisco, so I suppose it’s normal.
The wife of a Florida congressman embroiled in an adultery scandal filed for divorce Monday.
U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney admitted last week to having at least two affairs, including with an aide he paid off to keep her quiet about their relationship. His wife, Terry Mahoney, did not comment on seeking the divorce, and her attorney, Karen Steger, said “the petition speaks for itself.”
Good for her! I’m so sick of these women who “stand by their man”, who isn’t really a man at all, but a zipper waiting to open and let it all spill out.
However, the first-term Democrat, in a tight bid for re-election, insists he broke no laws and will not resign. Voters chose him on a family values platform to replace Mark Foley, a Republican who resigned amid revelations that he sent lurid Internet messages to teenage male pages who worked on Capitol Hill.
The weasel should also resign! There’s a difference between a one time thing, and repenting, and a long term affair. Not to mention paying off the other woman. He ran on “family values”. I see nothing about this whole situtation that promotes those values. Adultery is against God’s law, so yes, he did break a very important law. If Foley had the class to resign, when he all he did was send emails, this weasel should resign. Oh, I forgot….Dhimmicrats have no class.
The alarming collapse will be the biggest fall in house prices ever witnessed in Britain overshadowing any of the previous slumps.
The warning, from the consultancy Capital Economics, will horrify homeowners who bought recently but face being plunged into negative equity.
Every month, around 60,000 homeowners are falling into this trap, when the size of their mortgage is bigger than the value of their home.
The house prices have been overblown for the last 20 years. While this whole mess could have been avoided, in a way, I’m glad to see the prices of house falling. Most of them aren’t worth anywhere near what the price tag shows. Hopefully, in a few years, things will settle down, and folks will once again be able to afford a decent home….those that can actually afford one, that is. In the meantime, times are going to be tough.
The union said inadequate funding contributed to escalating violence at schools in the region where students regularly assaulted or threatened staff and their peers. Smoking, drugs, truancy, abusive language and unsafe behaviours like tackling were other common triggers for suspension. The Courier-Mail recently reported suspensions were up 25 per cent at Gold Coast and Ipswich schools, which includes those in Logan and Beaudesert, since 2005-06.
Wrong!! Throwing money at this type of problem is ridiculous! Look at the parents, and you might see what’s wrong with the students. Seriously, why should kids respect teachers, or any other authority figures when their parents don’t, and there are no consequences for their actions?
Momentum is building for a fresh dose of economic stimulants to boost the country out of the doldrums — perhaps by putting more money in Americans’ pockets.
The White House said Monday that President Bush was open to some sort of action after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke warned the slump could drag on without the extra bracing tonic.
The first ‘stimulus package’ was a really stupid idea. Do they really believe a second one is more intelligent? Who the hell is in charge up there? Oh yes, let’s put the country even further in debt by handing out checks….paid for by the taxpayers. What a bunch of morons! What we NEED if for the asshats in D.C. to STOP FREAKIN’ TINKERING!
Hirofumi Nakasone said that Tehran and Tokyo enjoy friendly and long-lasting ties.
Expressing his country’s readiness to back Iran’s peaceful nuclear program, Nakasone said that Iran should gain international confidence over its peaceful nuclear activities.
Japan is a country which has suffered from atomic bombings.
And since the Japanese know the horrors of such bombings, why, for the love of all that’s Holy, would they want to support Iran in their pursuit of the destruction of Israel and the U.S.?
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
