An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Over the past two years they have spent day after day patrolling hostile territory, where every passer-by could have a gun or a bomb.
So the 200 men of the 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment perhaps had a right to expect a heroes’ welcome yesterday on a homecoming parade through Luton.
Instead, they were faced with the hate-filled jeers of anti-war protesters waving placards saying: ‘Anglian soldiers: Butchers of Basra,’ and ‘Anglian soldiers: cowards, killers, extremists.’
I’m going to be real honest here. The British government has allowed these vermin to invade, breed, and take over their country. That being said, there is NO excuse for anyone to so abuse the very people that allows them to be pigs! No, I take that back. Why insult pigs by comparing them to the pedophile followers?
While Mizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Chris is out partying with the buds this evening, at Drinking Right, I thought this particular little tidbit should be shared.
Last Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit dealt a crushing blow to national defense. The three-judge panel’s ruling in al Odah v. United States has gotten scarce media attention. Perhaps that’s understandable: It’s a mind-numbing technical dispute over “discovery” in litigation, vying for attention against the socializing of our economy and the consequent collapse of the stock market. But the discovery in question is the most vital kind, namely, that of classified national-defense information. What is in dispute is how much sensitive intelligence we must share with enemies bent on annihilating Americans — enemies against whom the people’s representatives have authorized, by overwhelming margins, the use of force. That is, these “petitioners” are the militants who — along with al-Qaeda’s hierarchy and affiliates — use the intelligence we give them against the soldiers we have dispatched to fight the battles Congress has authorized, under the direction of a president whose first duty is the prosecution of the war.
I beg your pardon? Why on earth would ANYONE, with one drop of common sense, share information with those who are hell bent to destroy us?
Wanna get real pissed off??? Go read the whole thing. I have neither the patience, nor inclination, to comment further.
Well folks, they’re at it again. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that Congress needs to “keep the door open” to a second stimulus package.
“The word of the day is confidence. Confidence in our markets, confidence in lending, confidence in our financial institutions,” Pelosi said before suggesting the need for a second rescue package during a press conference Tuesday following a meeting with top economists.
Confidence? Are you kidding? On what planet has Speaker Pelosi been living? While markets are tanking and the lending and financial institutions are taking bailout money, i.e. OUR money, how can this moron spout off about confidence?? According to The Conference Board, consumer confidence is at an all time low. More about it here. Says Lynn Franco, director of the Conference Board Consumer Research Center,
“All in all, not only do consumers feel overall economic conditions have grown more dire, but just as disconcerting, they anticipate no improvement in conditions over the next six months,”
Mark Zandi, chief economist and founder of Moody’s Economy, says “We are going to need more taxpayer money … I think another stimulus package is a reasonable assumption because of the way things are going” This really chaps my hide. I don’t know about you, but I really don’t have any more to give. When are the idiots in DC going to realize that there ISN’T any more? More and more people are losing their jobs every day. More and more businesses are closing their doors every day. And these doofuses have the unmitigated gall to say that they need MORE of our money? I have many words floating around in my head right now, but in deference to my hostess here, I will refrain from spouting them.
26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
