An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 12 July 2009
Uh huh. Ok, what about this one? Off the mark? Or just plain ridiculous. Heh.
Ok, now this really IS me! *snicker*
Yep, it’s hard to tell what will entertain me at any given time. Escaping from the insanity of family is always a good reason to do stuff like this, right?
Ok, what about you? HUH HUH HUH??
Today was a ‘big’ day around here. Ick drove down to Houston to pick up “Grandma”. She isn’t exactly a blood family member, but she’s the closest thing to a granny type the girls have, so they call her Grandma. Yeah….I’m the actual grandmother, but do I seem the granny type to you? No, I didn’t think so!
Ick made his ‘world famous’ fajitas. Gotta tell ya, they were pretty dadburn good. And if he doesn’t quit cooking all the time, I’m gonna be back into my bigger britches before I get back home. One thing that is driving him nuts….the estrogen around here is definitely overshadowing the testosterone. heh heh heh
I did manage to send a few pics through my phone today, but I gotta tell ya, moving all around the house, pointing that goofy thing in all directions, just to get something to send….taking a good 15 minutes each, is more than just a little annoying.
So, anyways, here we have the family canines, Haley and Bo. Only my daughter would name a dog Haley. Jeeez.
Bo is an interesting specimen: Poor critter is one of those who was neglected, so Short Person decided he should come home with her one day after school. His scars have healed up, and he’s lost the worm tummy, and is so bloomin’ funny to watch sliding across the tile floors. Heh. He’s got BIG feet too. This should be interesting. *snicker*
There might be a few folks wondering… “Wait a minute. No picture of Brat Jr?” Nope! And the reason for that is…..I’m sick of taking pictures of her bloomin’ hand, which she has a REAL bad habit of putting up anytime she see’s a camera in my hand. She thinks she a total diva, and I’m the flippin’ paparazzi, I suppose. Rotten child!
Here are a couple of links I came across yesterday, that, needless to say, are quite disturbing:
It was a little over a year ago that Atlas broke the story that Obama’s certification of live birth was a “horrible forgery”. I ran a 28 page forensic digital analysis meticulously prepared by a forensic digital examination specialist exposing the fraud. Obama hired five law firms to fight the release of the vault copy. He has never seen the light of day despite numerous calls by hundreds of thousands of concerned Americas to do just that.
Rep. Alcee Hastings – the impeached Florida judge Nancy Pelosi tried to install as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee until her own party members rebelled – introduced an amendment to the defense authorization bill that gives Attorney General Eric Holder sole discretion to label groups that oppose government policy on guns, abortion, immigration, states’ rights, or a host of other issues. In a June 25 speech on the House floor, Rep. Trent Franks, R-AZ, blasted the idea: “This sounds an alarm for many of us because of the recent shocking and offensive report released by the Department of Homeland Security which labeled, arguably, a majority of Americans as ‘extremists.’”
Go! Read both! I have family to deal with, and I’m sure you’re intelligent enough to see the writing on the wall. Well, at least MOST of you are. The rest? Well, go ahead, keep your head buried in the sand, and continue sipping on your Kool Aid.
UPDATE: Per Dr Dave, here’s one that should be on the HOLY SH*T list:
Cass Sunstein, a Harvard Law professor who has been appointed to a shadowy post that will grant him powers that are merely mind-boggling, explicitly supports using the courts to impose a “chilling effect” on speech that might hurt someone’s feelings. He thinks that the bloggers have been rampaging out of control and that new laws need to be written to corral them.
Have NONE of Obummer’s cronies ever read the Constitution????? It is NOT toilet paper, and I can guran-damn-tee, there are a LOT more of us who believe in the 1st AND 2nd Amendments, than there are the feckless weasels who now believe they are gods! I have a God, and a Messiah! It ain’t the poser, Barack Hussein Obama!
Well, I said I would be posting light, and I’ve pretty much stuck to that, haven’t I! The biggest reason, I haven’t watched the news is close to a week! Heh. Yes, withdrawal was tough at the start, but I’ve survived it, and now am actually enjoying not being glued to the idjit box. Actually, during the MJ fiasco, I wasn’t watching before we left on our trip, so it’s really not so bad. I’m hoping that’s behind us? One can only hope!
I haven’t posted any pictures of the clan, because, well, I get zip on the phone service out here. You’d think a town, so close to Houston, with a WHOLE lot of commuters would have better phone service. Oh hell no! And since I use my phone to take pictures…. “Can you hear me now?” NO! I can’t hear diddly. Verizon lies! I did find one spot in the house where I could talk to the Mr, but if I moved an inch in either direction…. sigh… Yes, I could also go outside and wander around the yard till I got reception, but it’s freakin’ hot out there…..are you NUTS?
I’m seriously enjoying my bat cave! Other than the fact the toity doesn’t work worth a flip, it’s quite nice to escape the over sized rug rats now and then….especially in the morning. As we all know, I am NOT a morning person, and I seriously do not want to have a conversation with a 10 year old, on ANY subject. It has been pleasant to sit and drink coffee with Ick on those mornings when every one else was still asleep. I guess we’re the only two who have figured out, sleeping all day is kind of a waste, and Brat was at work, so having her scowling wasn’t an issue. She’s not a morning person either. Wonder where she gets it? Hmmm….
Luckily, there has been no blood letting between Brat Jr and Short Person….so far. It’s kind of tough when there are 6 years difference between them. Their interests are completely different, obviously. In a few short weeks, Jr will be 17. I don’t think playing with princess stuff is her thing. Although, it was extremely amusing to listen to them playing American Idol. Even the dogs kept trying to figure out where that racket was coming from. Heh. I think it’s pretty safe to say, neither one will be dealing with Simon whatshisface any time soon.
With the economy still firmly in the grip of a tenacious recession, President Obama is urging Americans to have patience and give his economic recovery plan time to work.
Restating themes he laid out in his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama said in an op-ed posted early Sunday on The Washington Post’s Web site that his $787 billion stimulus program was not expected to return the economy to full health, but to provide a boost that would stop the free fall.
“So far, it has done that,” the president wrote. “It was, from the start, a two-year program, and it will steadily save and create jobs as it ramps up over this summer and fall.”
Really? “It has done that”? I’m not sure what planet that man is from, or which one he is currently residing, but it sure isn’t the same one I am seeing! If anything, his moronic plan has made things a WHOLE lot worse. What jobs is he ‘creating’? Seriously, I wish someone would tell me. If any at all, are there more than the 3 million that have been lost?
“Simply put, this is now President Obama’s economy and the American people are beginning to question whether his policies are working,” Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, the House Republican whip, said in the GOP’s weekly address.
Oh yeah. He owns this one! It is ALL his, and his socialist minions. If he had left things alone, odds are, we would already be seeing some recovery. But no….like all children, he had to tinker with it, and make it worse!
Obama, in the op-ed, said “Even as we rescue this economy from a full-blown crisis, I have insisted that we must rebuild it better than before.”
Uh huh. His idea of ‘better than before” is an economy run totally by the giverment. And we see how well that’s worked, haven’t we. People have lost any faith in their gubmint, and when that happens, it’s time to dissolve it, and start from scratch…..RETURN to the republic, which the Founder Fathers created. The one I’ve watch erode over my lifetime, but nothing like it has during the past 7 months!
Health care costs must be controlled, jobs created within the U.S., worker training programs established and budget deficits reduced, he said.
So, the United Socialist States of America, once a proud nation, is going the way of the Soviet Union, and we all know how well that worked out, don’t we. Yeah. That makes boatloads of sense.
