An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

49 Million to Five

In the wake of the shooting of late-term abortionist George Tiller, President Barack Obama sent out a welcome message that this nation would not tolerate attacks on pro-lifers or any other Americans because of their religion or beliefs.
Ha ha! Just kidding. That was the lead sentence — with minor edits — of a New York Times editorial warning about theoretical hate crimes against Muslims published eight months after 9/11. Can pro-lifers get a hate crimes bill passed and oceans of ink devoted to assuring Americans that “most pro-lifers are peaceful”?
For years, we’ve had to hear about the grave threat that Americans might overreact to a terrorist attack committed by 19 Muslims shouting “Allahu akbar” as they flew commercial jets into American skyscrapers. That would be the equivalent of 19 pro-lifers shouting “Abortion kills a beating heart!” as they gunned down thousands of innocent citizens in Wichita, Kan.
By now everyone on the web knows my rather larger feline named Rocky. Ol Broad has referred to him as a *Mega Moose*, a *Moose /out antlers* and a few other names that escape me at this time. This picture was taken a few days ago by small person. Since the addition of the puppy to our herd, we are not Rocky’s favorite people. He wants to have nothing to do with the puppy actually. He has taken to hiding in our sink to ensure his survival from a playful puppy.
Since the Ol Broad is under the weather I thought I would post a picture of her favorite *Mega Moose Cat* to cheer her up.
Recently, Gov. Bredesen vetoed a bill that passed the TN legislature pretty overwhelmingly. That would be the right of carry permit holders to take their weapons into bars and restaurants if they are not imbibing. Well, since I don’t drink, this would never be an issue for me. Honestly, I don’t think alcohol and guns mix, but hey, that’s just me. Most gun owners are extremely responsible. Yeah, there are a VERY few who have issues, but they are NOT the norm.
So, when you have restaurants and bars putting up signs that forbids a legally carrying citizen from bringing their weapon into their establishment, that is their right. That being said, there is also the other side of the coin. Why not just tell the criminals where the easiest target is for them to terrorize? Hmmmm???
Here’s a little something that you might find interesting (found at Rustmeister’s Alehouse).
Article I: Declaration of Rights
Section 26 – That the citizens of this State have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defense; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms with a view to prevent crime.
Well, the idea of having a carry permit is to ‘prevent crime’. Hopefully, none of these restaurants and bars who put up such signs, will never be targeted, but if they are, I wonder if they’ll be praying one of their customers ignored it?
(I don’t notice anything there that says you have to have a permit either. Hmmm…. )
Update (H/T to David on Facebook):
House overrides Governor’s veto on guns in restaurants
State Senate expected to follow suit in the coming days
State Rep. Glen Casada (R-Franklin) rose to rebut Naifeh and said that “an armed citizen is a safe citizen.” He added that the “bad guys” are already bringing guns into bars and restaurants and people who have gone through the mandatory 8 hours of training to have a carry permit can now protect him and his family.
AL-QAEDA chief Osama bin Laden has scorned Barack Obama’s overture to the Islamic world and warned of decades of conflict, at the start of the US president’s Middle East charm offensive.
Charm? What? I don’t see it. Am I the only one who does NOT find the clown in chief charming? Clinton? He was a bit charming, not a lot, a little, but Obummer? Not at all!
He accused Mr Obama of “antagonising Muslims” in the same way as his predecessor George W. Bush, in an audiotape aired on Qatar’s Al-Jazeera news channel less than an hour after the president landed in Saudi Arabia.
I’m not real sure where Bubba Laden is getting his news, but it ain’t from any source around here. All we see is B. Hussein sucking up, bowing down, and groveling to the Muslim world. You’d think ol’ Bubba Laden would be pleased.
“Obama and his administration have sowed new seeds of hatred against America,” said the Al-Qaeda leader whose network carried out the 9/11 attacks in the United States.
“Let the American people prepare to harvest the crops of what the leaders of the White House plant in the next years and decades.”
Do these people not realize that we are more than willing to fight them in the streets if need be, and blow their sorry asses to Allah? Well, The ONE might not be, but those of us out here in the REAL world have NO problem.
Bin Laden’s right-hand man Ayman al-Zawahiri earlier urged Egyptians to shun Obama, saying his trip was at the invitation of the “torturers of Egypt” and the “slaves of America”.
“His bloody messages were received and are still being received by Muslims, and they will not be concealed by public relations campaigns or by farcical visits or elegant words,” Zawahiri said in an Internet audio recording.
Sure sounds to me like al cutta is losing it’s grip, and wants to regain control of their fellow lunatics.
Arab newspapers, meanwhile, warned Mr Obama to beware of lecturing Muslims on his landmark trip.
“Don’t be biased towards Israel, don’t interfere in countries’ internal affairs and don’t give lessons in democracy,” advised a front-page editorial in Egypt’s state-owned Al-Rose Al-Youssef.
Oh, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem for The ONE. It’s fairly obvious that he’s not Israel’s ‘friend’. Honestly, you’d think these pigs would be real happy with Obummer, since he seems to be one of them. Hmm… Go figure.
