An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

I have to say, I am more than disappointed that Sen. Corker voted for that tax cheat. I am more than disillusioned with him. Bob, you can rest assured, I will be speaking out against you at every possible chance, and when you come up for re-election, I will be supporting a conservative.
Beleaguered Citigroup is upgrading its mile-high club with a brand-new $50 million corporate jet – only this time, it’s the taxpayers who are getting screwed.
Even though the bank’s stock is as cheap as a gallon of gas and it’s burning through a $45 billion taxpayer-funded rescue, the airhead execs pushed through the purchase of a new Dassault Falcon 7X, according to a source familiar with the deal.
I can’t even begin to express just how much this kind of crap chaps my hide.
What a joke! Sorry, the Saudis are NOT our allies in the ‘war on terror’. Ooops. Sorry. I forgot….President B. Hussein has declared the War on Terror over, hasn’t he. My bad!

Saudi Textbooks Incite Hatred & Violence against non-Muslims
by Dr. Sami Alrabaa
- Who is, or who is not, punished in a Muslim society:
A Muslim who kills an apostate or someone who commits adultery against an infidel is not punished.
If a Muslim kills an infidel or a slave, he is not punished.
If a Muslim man, father, or grandfather kills someone from his offspring, he is not punished.
I went through the school textbooks taught in Saudi Arabia and Indonesia. Here is an English translation of some passages from these books.
He, along with other Beale Street merchants, claims that the legal action pursued by the city is just cover for a secret plan to regain control of the famous artery — located just south of a piece of property Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton held a secret interest in — and hand it over to a major national developer with ties to Justin Timberlake.
“They are doing this over here so you don’t see what they are doing over there,” Elkington said.
Honestly, nothing Harrington does would surprise me. What would surprise me if is someone came along that would clean up Memphis politics, and sweep out the feckless politicians. I wonder if they all came from Chicago, or New Orleans?
The newspaper quoted the officials as telling Hamas that surveys in Israel show the opposition leader is likely to come to power in February’s general election, adding that he would form a coalition with “extremist parties.”
They reportedly said that Hamas stands to “lose everything” under these circumstances.
Hamas’ Gaza spokesman Ayman Taha, meanwhile, has said recently that Israel has offered his Palestinian Islamist group a 10-year cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.
To put it simply, as long as there is a Hamas, there will be no ‘cease-fire’. As long as Israel exists, the Muslims, no matter what name they use, peace will be unattainable. Unless there is an acknowledgment that Israel has a RIGHT to exist, as well as any NON Muslim, there will be no peace. Until the whole world accepts Islam, and allows themselves to be ground under the thumb of the pedophile worshipers, no one will live in peace. And even then, the evil will continue.
President Obama plans to instruct key federal agencies today to reexamine two policies that could force automakers to produce more fuel-efficient cars that yield fewer greenhouse gas emissions, according to sources who have been briefed on the announcement.
The move, which the White House has privately trumpeted to supporters as “the first environment and energy actions taken by the president, helping our country move toward greater energy independence,” could reverse two Bush-era decisions that have helped shape the nation’s climate policy and its auto market.
Is there a rule, that if you live in the D.C. area, and hold public office, you have to be completely ignorant? Seriously. I’ve yet to see one intelligent thing to come out of that swamp in YEARS!
Taking his defense to the airwaves rather than his impeachment trial, Gov. Rod Blagojevich lashed out at his accusers Monday and revealed he had considered naming Oprah Winfrey to the Senate.
On the day his Senate trial was to begin, Blagojevich was hundreds of miles away in New York, appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America” before scheduled appearances on “The View” and “Larry King Live.”
“I’m here in New York because I can’t get a fair hearing in Illinois, the state Senate in Illinois,” Blagojevich said in between TV appearances. “They’ve decided, with rules that are fixed, that don’t allow me as a governor the right to be able to bring in witnesses to prove that I’ve done nothing wrong.”
The man has truly tipped his rocker over backwards.
Lubanga’s militia “recruited, trained and used hundreds of young children to kill, pillage and rape. The children still suffer the consequences of Lubanga’s crimes,” Moreno-Ocampo said.
He said he would seek a sentence close to the maximum, which could be either 30 years or life depending on the severity of his crimes.
Moreno-Ocampo showed judges video of Lubanga addressing recruits—including young men and children dressed in military fatigues or T-shirts and shorts—at a training camp.
Girls were particularly vulnerable, Moreno-Ocampo said.
“As soon as the girls’ breasts started to grow, Thomas Lubanga’s commanders could select them as their wives,” he said. “Wives is the wrong word. They were sexual slaves.”
Sick SOB should be hacked to death by the very people whose lives he has destroyed. Although, that would be way to kind.
A California man pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to violate the U.S. embargo against Iran by arranging for the sale of parts for military aircraft, including fighter jets and attack helicopters.
Iranian-born Hassan Keshari, a 48-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen living in Novato, Calif., pleaded guilty to a single conspiracy count in a deal with prosecutors that could sharply reduce his prison sentence in return for continued cooperation. He faces a maximum of five years at sentencing set for April 8.
Wouldn’t that be considered….treason? Isn’t the penalty for treason, death? I don’t know for sure, but it sure seems to be that what he did was a national security type crime…aiding an abetting the enemy. Contray to what Mr B. Hussein wants y’all to believe, Iran is an enemy.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, describing the U.S. economy as “dark, darker, darkest,” indicated that further nationalization of American banks may be necessary, although she shied away from using the word “nationalization.”
Pelosi also told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that investing in food stamps and unemployment insurance would be more effective in stimulating the economy than any tax cut would be.
Oh yes, by all means…encourage people to sit home on their asses instead of giving businesses the tools to actually CREATE jobs. What a dipwad! Although the word I can think of, right off the top of my head, isn’t quite so polite.
A friend in Israel sent this, and I just had to share it. Where was that critter when my young’un was breaking my eardrums? sigh…
35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.
38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.
