An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 1 July 2010
Well, ok, I’ve already left home, and am halfway to my destination, but hey, what can I say….I’m old, and forget. On my way to spend some time with the Brat, Ick and Short Person down in the wilds of …..someplace outside of Houston.
Right now, I’m sitting in my room at the luxurious Diamond Jack’s Casino and Hotel. Ok, extreme exaggeration on that ‘luxurious’ part, but hey, the price was right, and it’s not too bad. I’ve seen MUCH worse….stayed in a few too.
Why am I sitting in a hotel room instead of blowing the Mr’s money down in the casino? Cuz I’m flippin’ tired, that’s why! It’s a 7 hour drive from Podunk to here. Sheesh!
One plus at having such a long drive – listening to books on cd. I’m halfway through Atlas Shrugs. Yes, I did start reading the actual book, but the thing was so bloomin’ big and heavy, my itty bitty hands couldn’t handle it.
This video is more than a year old, but as we’ve learned in the past year, Obama and his minions will stop at nothing to gain complete control of our lives, and this country.

We have HAD IT … with the politicians running the US government today! To narrow it down, a bit, we are writing, most specifically, about the Socialist-Democrats in Congress and the Socialist-Marxist in the White House.
We, the American people, have been shut out of our own government. Legislation is now made behind closed doors, as our Congresspersons and Senators cut themselves off from the very folks they swore to represent.
Their arrogance and condescension is nauseating. Anyone questioning them is at risk of being made a fool of, in public, before his friends and neighbors. How DARE we question our “betters?”
They blatantly go against the will of the American people by passing laws that are flat-out against the American will.
They refuse to defend the country from those stealing across its borders to take up residence, illegally, and begin sucking up every dollar possible from the people’s treasury, which is administered by the same socialist-democrats who then swear they are doing everything they can do to secure the border. That, dear reader is a LIE!
I use to really enjoy sitting down at my computer every morning, checking out the current news, making comments on what I saw as worth the effort or sharing opinions. These days, I find it difficult because my thought mostly are comprised of four lettered words that are not normally part of my vocabulary. I’m not typically a negative, angry person. I have, unfortunately, become one. I don’t like it!
J.D. has put into words what a large number of us are thinking, feeling, and saying, without the four lettered words. He has more discipline than I do, that’s for sure!
Day by Day, bill by 3000 page bill, we are seeing the destruction of our nation, socially, economically, and now, ecologically. Our patience is at an end!
Note to Congress: YOU work for US, not the other way around! YOU are OUR ‘public servants’, we are NOT your slaves. Nor will we submit to your whims! You truly have “awakened a sleeping giant”!
Did D’Bama pull this woman’s name out of his ass? She’s obviously intelligent, but she’s not very smart, and has a total lack of common sense. Evidently, the Constitution and Federalist Papers were never on her reading list!
The Limitless Power of the Obama-Kagan Congress
This Sunday, our nation will celebrate Independence Day, which commemorates the Continental Congress’ adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration preamble reads: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The fact that we as a nation came together every year to celebrate this document might lead many Americans to believe that a Supreme Court Justice should take the Declaration of Independence into account when they are interpreting the Constitution. Elena Kagan is not one of those Americans. Under questioning from Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) yesterday, Kagan admitted: “To be honest with you, I don’t have a view of what are natural rights independent of the Constitution.”
No idea why this guy split the videos into 8 parts. Don’t blame me. Worked better in 4 parts. Oh well.
