An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
We know that “safe schools czar” and “Queering Elementary Education” essayist Kevin Jennings failed to oppose homosexual man-boy relationships and that science czar John Holdren has written, without objection, that “laws requiring compulsory abortion could be sustained under the existing Constitution.” We know that one-time Health and Human Services secretary nominee Tom Daschle had to withdraw because of a failure to pay his taxes. But what has not been adequately tallied is how many of President Obama’s nominees and appointees are radical or just plain embarrassing.
When radicalism and ethical shortcomings reach such a critical mass, it’s time to broadcast the dishonor roll. Therefore, in addition to Mr. Jennings, Mr. Holdren and Mr. Daschle, please consider the ramifications of an administration manned by the likes of the following.

I have said it before (as have many others), and I will say it again…. A man is known by the company he keeps. It’s an old adage, and it’s quite applicable in the current political atmosphere.
It’s getting more and more difficult to even watch the news, or read online news without feeling disgust. I’ve always been an optimistic person. I make negative jokes, but on the inside, I’ve always believed that there will be a positive outcome. I’m not finding that to be the case anymore. Yes, we could make a complete turnaround, but it’s going to take a lot of work on the part of people who still believe in the U.S. to get up off their butts (me included) to get it done.
I’ve watched what I once believed was the greatest country in the world, start a slow decline 40 years ago, to where we are at this point in time. Pedophiles being defended. Homosexuality seems mainstream. Stealing and lying is a way of life. And no one seems to care. Why? Why is that what I was taught was wrong is now just ‘every day life’?
Contrary to what many on the left would like to believe, I, for one, don’t actually hate Obama, the person. Getting close, but not actual hate. What I hate are Obama, the POTUS, his policies, and the damage he has done in a short 9 months time. I don’t have a problem with the color of his skin, don’t give a flyin’ flip! I have SERIOUS problems with the color of his agenda…..RED (that’s communist for the ignorant/”progressive” out there). The appointment of such reprehensible persons to positions of authority, answerable only to the president, does not bode well for this nation’s future.
I do believe it is possible to retake our country from the extremists, but I do not believe it will be just through our votes. When it comes right down to it, we can go to the polls each election day, but the choices we have been give over the years are NOT the candidates we actually need to have on the ballot. How many times have we seen the best candidates get left by the way side because of party politics (in fighting, it’s not their ‘time’, go along to get along, etc.). We can’t allow this to continue. We, as Americans, MUST retake our political process. We must not allow companies, lobbyist, or even newspapers to choose who we want to see in leadership positions.
