An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Having placed 50 percent of America’s economy under government control, the Obama administration is now angling for a tighter grip on the financial sector.
The operative word is “fairness,” which is shorthand for Obama’s famous campaign promise to “spread the wealth around.”
When critics said that this remark to “Joe the Plumber” displayed Obama’s socialist leanings, Obama justified it by citing Scripture:
“My Bible tells me there is nothing wrong with helping other people,” said then-Sen. Obama. “That we want to treat others like we want to be treated. That I am my brother’s keeper, and I am my sister’s keeper. I believe that.”
But Obama, who once dismissed the Bible’s relevance to politics, saying, “People haven’t been reading their Bibles lately,” may need to go reread his Engels. Co-author with Karl Marx of The Communist Manifesto, Friedrich Engels knew better than Obama about collectivism’s clash with Christianity, stating, “…if some few passages of the Bible may be favourable to Communism, the general spirit of its doctrines is, nevertheless, totally opposed to it ….”

All those liberals>progressive>socialist>commies who insist that Jesus was a socialist, have never read the Bible.

I keep waiting for all those so called feminists to rise up, shout to the rooftops “This will NOT happen in our country!” Silence. They don’t really care about women. All they care about is the “choice” to MURDER babies. What’s a few innocent women being slaughtered, in the name of an evil religion, when there are so much more important things to deal with, like having the right to suck the brains out of an unborn child?
H/T: creeping sharia
House Speaker Kent Williams says a $16.9 million trout hatchery in his home district would help boost the local economy, but lawmakers who live nearby think the idea sounds a little fishy.
Calling it “fish pork,” several legislators in Upper East Tennessee districts say there is no space in the state budget to fund special projects during tight economic times. Building a fish hatchery in Carter County is simply a pet project for the independent Speaker of the House of Representatives that he’ll then use to bait voters come election time, Williams’ rivals in the chamber charge.
It’s a move they say will leave cash-strapped Tennessee taxpayers on the hook to pay the tab.
“We have lots of fish farms in East Tennessee. They’re called rivers and lakes and streams,” said Rep. Jon Lundberg, a Bristol Republican who neighbors Williams’ district. “We don’t need to spend $16 million on, truly, a version of fish ‘pork.’”
What is the matter with these people??? Are they completely out of their minds? Here’s a novel thought….how about NOT adding more into the budget on crap that isn’t needed? Government, federal, state and local, seem to be incapable of using a bit of common sense. If Williams wants a fish hatchery in his county, why not encourage PRIVATE companies to invest in such an enterprise?
“Why shouldn’t Carter County and upper East Tennessee just get just a little chunk?” said Williams, who added that other areas have benefited from economic developments when the state attracted companies like Volkswagon or Hemlock Semiconductor.
He can’t be serious….. can he? Williams can’t tell the difference between a large car company, that provides hundreds of job, and a flippin’ trout?
This is a really good post about the utter stupidity of those sitting in positions of power!
Go back to Mexico
Uncouth President Calderon wore out his welcome
Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon ought to know a lot about illegal immigrant abuse. His country has one of the worst migrant human-rights records in the world.
During his state visit last week, Mr. Calderon repeatedly – and with support and encouragement from the White House and congressional Democrats – made his opinions known on a variety of American domestic issues, including immigration and gun control. He took particular aim at Arizona’s new law concerning illegal aliens, absurdly describing it as “violating the human rights of all people.”
Now that we are repeating history, isn’t it time we learn how to prevent the same problems? One thing EVERYONE should read, is a post P/H put up June of last year. The revisionists on the Supreme Court started us on the path to radically change our history and our future. This is why Supreme Court nominees are SO important. Changing our Constitution is NOT the job of the Justices, yet they have done it time and time again. Personal agendas have been shoved down the throats of the American people, with no authority to do so. We MUST return to it to its original intent.
Spend a few hours…yes, I said HOURS, days even…..reading Publius-Huldah’s Blog. If you want to learn about original intent, how the government has forgotten where they get their powers, what is, and is not true, about our founding. This is one of the best resources available, IF you want the truth about ‘health care’ to treaties. Well, researched! She doesn’t post often, but what she does have posted will, quite possibly, make your head explode in anger. The “progressives” of the early 20th century have brought us to the sorry state we are in now. Arm yourself with knowledge! And for you “progressives”, try to insert a bit of common sense into your lives!
If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
