An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

If there is one thing about my sister, she is a major critter person. So, what do we find on this trip? Her newest addition to the zoo is actually quite small, and obviously not your normal “house pet”. Her name is Sunshine. Why? Who the heck knows….this is my sister, after all.
So, without further ado….meet Sunshine!
Yes, ladies and gentlemen….my sister has a ‘pet’ squirrel. Why would anyone have a pet squirrel? It seems a couple of her many dogs brought this tiny, hairless creature to her doorstep, evidently, still quite alive. So, over a period of time, she hand fed this little critter until it started getting fur, and then, it was too late for her to let go. Sunshine is now about 4 months old. Will my sister allow this wild critter return to the wild? Well, it seems this little squirrel has decided she’s mom, so who knows.
Hey, at least the only little critters I bring into the house are cats!
I came across an interesting letter to the editor this morning in the The Plain Dealer that all anti Americans, aka LIBS/PROGRESSIVES, should read. You might become a bit better informed.
Thanks to Ellen Reeves (Nov. 19) for responding to Gayle Crawford’s rant (Nov. 14) when Crawford stated in her letter to the editor that those attending “tea parties” are “barbaric hordes” of Republicans.
Not true, Ms. Crawford. I have had the pleasure of attending some of the “tea parties” and have made a point of circulating through the crowd to talk with other attendees. They are not all Republicans, and for Crawford to assume they are is a great disservice to herself and the good American citizens who do attend.
The people I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with are from all walks of life and political persuasions, various ethnicities, blue- and white-collar professions and representative of many age groups. I have talked with America-loving Democrats who are fed up with our government and how our country is being ruined by both political parties. I have not seen hatred in their eyes or heard it in their voices. What I have witnessed is a deep concern for our country and a desire to let those in Washington (and in state and local government) know that we have had enough of their political nonsense.
Remember, we are Americans first — not Republicans or Democrats. There actually seems little difference in either party, and in many cases what one party used to represent has now become the other party’s doctrine. Just think how the politicians can continue to enjoy holding on to their offices by supposedly fighting against the other party while not really representing their constituents. It goes on year after year, election after election, and we see it constantly in letters to the editor and newspaper articles where someone from one party is lambasting the other in hopes of persuading voters to think that his guy or his party is much better than the other.
It is time we all accepted that most politicians from both parties no longer represent any of us, but only themselves.
All Americans should be attending “tea parties.”
Thank you, Linda, for such a polite depiction of Tea Party attendees. If you listen to the left, via Olberman, Matthews, et al, you’d have to believe we are nothing but a bunch of right wing loons, hating on a “black” president, practicing some obscure sexual act, when nothing could be further from the REAL truth.

“To The Barricades!”
US Rogue Congress Must Be Thrown Out In 2010.
by J. D. Longstreet
America has now had the opportunity to see what a socialist government can do to America. We have seen the current US government — made up of Socialists, Marxists, Communists, Progressives, and a mere sprinkling of real Democrats — nearly cause the collapse of the greatest nation ever to grace the globe. In a matter of months they brought America to its knees in humiliation before the world. They managed to do what all of America’s enemies have never been able to do. America nearly capitulated.
But, thanks to the old moss-backed conservatives in the hinterlands of the nation continuously shouting the alarm and rallying the apathetic citizenry, Americans found their spine and during the past couple of months they have been rousing their fellow Americans, lovers of freedom, to fight back. The battle was joined and those conservatives who would not bow, who would not surrender the freedom, the liberty, our forefathers fought, bled, and died to preserve for us, have managed to fight the rogue government with a vigor they have not seen in a VERY long time. And we must keep it up!
Much has yet to be done to roll back as much of the government intrusion into our daily lives as we possibly can. Much has yet to be done to repair the damage to the democratic representative republic done by the socialists in Washington. If we are to prevail completely, we have no time to lose. We must begin reconstruction immediately.
The most important election in the history of the United States is coming up in November of 2010. Do not be surprised if the socialist government of the United States makes a massive effort to stop the elections scheduled for November of 2010. There ARE ways to do it and I expect them to try anything they can to remain in power.

It wouldn’t surprise me one little bit if they didn’t try to pull that crap. Pelosi claims not to be worried about losing seats in the House. Either she’s not paying attention to what has been going on in the rest of the country, or she’s quite aware, and is working putting something into place that we won’t be allowed to vote them out. I’d prefer to think she’s oblivious, but after watching the actions of Congress since January 20, 2009, I would put nothing past them now.
