An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 30 December 2009
sigh… Not to mention the fact it’s a WHOLE lot easier for ol’ broads to get up! So, basically, this is for ME!
In response to a Nigerian Muslim trying to blow up a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day, the government will now prohibit international travelers from going to the bathroom in the last hour before the plane lands.
Terrorists who plan to bomb planes during the first seven hours of the eight-hour flight, however, should face no difficulties, provided they wait until after the complimentary beverage service has been concluded.
How do they know Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab didn’t wait until the end of the flight to try to detonate explosives because he heard the stewardess announce that the food service was over and seats would have to be placed in their upright position? I can’t finish my snack? This plane is going down!
Yeah….that would be me….not an actual baby! Unless of course, I wore Depends, and then ya might call me a big baby, but since I don’t…. Oh, never mind!
The day after Christmas, I started coming down with the crud. It’s become an annual ritual with me. Christmas? Let the hacking and wheezing begin. We were going to head home this morning, but that didn’t happen. So, since I’ve not yet recovered, we are sticking around till Sunday. I’ve spent most of our time here, laying on the couch, sleeping or watching movies. Got to see some I had been wanting to see, and slept through a few that I’ll have to watch again, just to see if they are worth staying awake. Kind of like Transformers 2, but I think I like the first one better.
Brat’s b-day is Saturday, and she decided since it was not a good idea for me to be driving such a distance, we might as well stay for the ‘celebration’. Yeah, like I feel like partying hearty. Pfft! She just want presents she THINKS I’m gonna give her.
Holy cow! It just hit me. She’s just a few years from the LITERAL middle age! Heh! Now that’s funny!
So, in case you have been surprised by the serious lack of posting, that’s why!
Oh, and in case you weren’t aware, DayQuil tastes like crap! Not that I’d actually know what crap tastes like, but I imagine it’s quite close to this stuff, if you added Vick’s to it! BLECH!
Sen. John Kerry has filed a formal request to visit Iran, Iranian news agencies reported Tuesday — news made public in the middle of the government’s bloody crackdown on dissidents that has left more than a dozen dead.
While representatives for Kerry have so far not confirmed whether he intends to travel to Tehran, a spokesman for Iran’s foreign ministry said the country’s parliament is already considering the Massachusetts Democrat’s official overture.
The trip would come at a challenging time for the administration, as President Obama on Monday expressed support for Iranian protestors and condemned the government’s “iron fist of brutality.”
The Islamonazis are waging war on their own people who, in my understanding, just want to be free, and this idiot wants to go have a chat with the very ones are murdering innocents? What is it with this people? Don’t they understand the reality of the real world at all? Are they so wrapped up in their ivory towers, they aren’t aware of what has actually been happening around the globe?
The White House appeared comfortable with the visit when it was floated last week, provided Kerry goes in his capacity as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“This is the kind of trip that is appropriate for the chair of Senate Foreign Relations Committee,” a senior administration official told Fox News. “This is a Kerry initiative and not at the behest of the White House.”
The only kind of trip that is appropriate with these types of monsters is a few well placed bullets from a snipers rifle. I find it REAL hard to believe that Kerry came up with the idea all on his lonesome, unless of course, this is just another suck up for the Obama administration. Hmmm…. If all goes wrong, which likely it will, the White House will be able to claim they didn’t really approve.
Refusing to interrupt his Hawaiian golf vacation for almost three full days after the Flight 253 attack, President Barack Obama finally emerged on December 28th to assure the American people that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was “an isolated extremist” and that he had already “been charged with attempting to destroy an aircraft.” Continuing to treat the incident like a common law enforcement problem Obama referred to Abdulmutallab as the “suspect” five times and promised he would “not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable.”
