An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

You damn well SHOULD be!!!!!
I have an idea! Why don’t we just tack on another TRILLION DOLLARS to the current deficit, and call it a day! In case you don’t know, that is 1,000,000,000,000……a ONE followed by 12, count them, TWELVE zeroes!
Gunfire from a pro-government militia killed one man and wounded several others Monday after hundreds of thousands of chanting opponents of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad marched in central Tehran to support their pro-reform leader in his first public appearance since disputed elections.
At least one person fatally shot and at least two others who appeared to be seriously wounded.
The United States was “deeply troubled” by reports of violence and arrests in Iran, State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said, but he added that the U.S. knows too little about the conduct of the election to say for sure whether there was fraud.
“Deeply troubled”? Well, he was “saddened” by the murder of a U.S. soldier right here on home ground, but “shocked and outraged” at the death of a baby murderer. Hmm…. So, just in my opinion, he’s more upset that there will be one less slaughter mill, than he is over the death of people who are taking up the fight for freedoms?
“This is not election. This is selection,” read one English-language placard. Other marchers held signs proclaiming “We want our vote” and raised their fingers in a V-for-victory salute.
“We want our president, not the one who was forced on us,” said 28-year-old Sara, who gave only her first name because she feared reprisal from authorities.
I know the feeling. But seriously, will the one be all that much better than the other? Granted, from what I’ve been reading, Ahmadinnerjacket is manageable whereas Mousavi would not be so much under the thumb of the Mullahs. In the end, Iran will continue on it’s merry way, hating all things Western, and we will still be the Great Satan.
I do pray for the safety of those who would like to see some change in their country, away from the strict Muslim rulers, but I don’t think anything will really change if they do get their elected candidate.
Just my 2 cents.
Why are they carrying signs in English?
Update: Evidently there have been 12 deaths.
I hear people insist that the public education system is NOT skewed to the left, but incident after incident proves otherwise.
#17: Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism, and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in text books.
I’d have to say they’ve pretty much succeeded with this goal, wouldn’t you?
I just had to laugh at this…
SAGE, Riverside County — A woman got the surprise of her life when she walked into her garage to see why her dogs were barking. She found a full-grown mountain lion.
Ana Lee Spray, 23, says her three toy chihuahuas were barking so loudly that it woke her up Saturday morning. She couldn’t figure out what was wrong, and got up to check on the dogs. When she saw the animals standing guard at the opening of the garage, Spray investigated further.
She ran into her daughter’s bedroom, which has a window that looks into the garage, and quickly got the answer staring back at her.
The chihuahuas, which weigh about three pounds each, had cornered the mountain lion. She says the big cat appeared to be angry and began hissing at her and foaming at the mouth.
Spray quickly called 911 and then grabbed her video camera to record a few pictures of the cornered cougar.
The pint-sized puppies refused to back off, and kept barking for about 45 minutes until two Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at Spray’s home in the 3900 block of San Ignacio Road.
“When they saw the dogs they said `These little things?’ When they saw the mountain lion their jaws dropped,” Spray said. “They radioed, `This is a full-size mountain lion and it is not happy to see us.’ ”
Officers with the Department of Fish and Game arrived at Spray’s home a short time later and Spray called the dogs off.
I have a hard time understanding why the feline didn’t just attack, but I think it’s pretty funny!!
Just a snippet:
In the bad ole days of the Soviet Union, it was ruled by the Politburo. The Politburo functioned as the central policymaking and governing body of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The body was made up of the top members of the Central Committee. In theory, it acted as the political bureau (hence Politburo) of the Central Committee, elected by them to direct the Party between the sessions of the committee and with a mandate that only covered the Party. The Politburo was responsible to, and its membership was subject to, the approval of the Central Committee.
We tell you this just in case you might be wondering where Our socialist President, Comrade Obama, got the idea for all those Czars he has appointed who seem to answer to no one but Obama. Well, now you know!

I do not believe our nation can survive the direction it has been heading since January 20. The people who voted for this sham should be ashamed of themselves. If they believe America is a great country, why did they want to destroy it by putting an incompetent boob in the White House?
Send Obummer back to Chicago, or Hawaii, or even Kenya! As long as he goes away before anymore damage is done! I just pray it’s not to late to reverse what he’s already done!
International Christian Concern (www.persecution.org) has learned that radical Muslims running a tea stall beat a Christian man to death for using a cup designated for Muslims on May 9. The young man, Ishtiaq Masih, had ordered tea at a roadside stall in Machharkay village, Punjab, Pakistan, after his bus made a rest stop.
A cup? How does the cup know the religion of the one who uses it? Does the cup actually care?
When Ishtiaq went to pay for his tea, the owner noticed that he was wearing a necklace with a cross and grabbed him, calling for his employees to bring anything available to beat him for violating a sign posted on the stall warning non-Muslims to declare their religion before being served. Ishtiaq had not noticed the warning sign before ordering his tea.
Kind of reminds me of the “whites only” water fountains back when I was a very young sprout. And just as ugly, if not even uglier in the 21st century.
The owner and 14 of his employees beat Ishtiaq with stones, iron rods and clubs, and stabbed him multiple times with kitchen knives as Ishtiaq pleaded for mercy.
The kind, tolerant and benevolent “Religion of Peace”.
Makah Tea Stall is located on the Sukheki-Lahore highway and is owned by Mubarak Ali, a 42-year-old radical Muslim. ICC’s correspondent visited the tea stall and observed that a large red warning sign with a death’s head symbol was posted which read, “All non-Muslims should introduce their faith prior to ordering tea. This tea stall serves Muslims only.” The warning also threatened anyone who violated the rule with “dire consequences.”
If he hadn’t seen the Cross, he would have never known the difference. What kind of person refuses service, to a paying customer? Well, a fanatic, of course!
Ishtiaq’s family said that they immediately reported the incident to the police and filed a case against Ali. However, the murderers are still freely operating the tea stall.
A murder has been committed. They KNOW who did the deed, yet do nothing?
When ICC asked the Pindi Bhatian Saddar police station about the murder, the police chief said that investigations were underway and they are treating it as a faith-based murder by biased Muslims. When asked about Ali’s warning sign, police chief Muhammad Iftikhar Bajwa claimed that he could not take it down. However, the constitution of Pakistan explicitly prohibits such discrimination.
What’s a little ol’ piece of paper to a Muslim? Since their “holy book” tells them to murder non-muslims, I guess it’s ok, right? How are people around the world suppose to look at the countries who continue to turn a blind eye to such actions? Like the 7th century barbarians they are, that’s how!
It’s really difficult for me to even express my disgust at these pigs! I will pray for the young man’s family, and all the Christians who have the misfortune of living in such a backward area!
