An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

I hope y’all haven’t forgotten today is Primary Day! If you didn’t do the early voting, better get your rear in gear and get to the polls today. LOTS of important races across the state, and your vote DOES count. At least for now! Better make use of the right while you still can!
FYI – the Mr cast his ballot early, as did I.
Now, one more cup of coffee and I’ve got to get my hind end back over to Jackson!
In the first voter referendum on ObamaCare, Missourians on Tuesday overwhelmingly (by 71 to 29 percent) backed Proposition C which called upon the state to enact a statute to “deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health insurance,” an outcome the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described as “rebuking President Barack Obama’s administration.” On Wednesday night, however, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts skipped the bad news for President Obama – yet all found time to celebrate his 49th birthday.
I’m guessing it isn’t occurring to the MSM that the general public perceives them as clowns? Irrelevant? When news of national interest, and importance occurs, the purpose of the media is to report the events. Is this what we’ve been getting from them? No. They are too busy lapping up D’Bama’s excrement. What USE to be respectable news organizations are nothing more than the Goebbels wing of the White House now.
Justice Brennan’s Footnote Gave Us Anchor Babies
by Ann Coulter
Democrats act as if the right to run across the border when you’re 8 1/2 months pregnant, give birth in a U.S. hospital and then immediately start collecting welfare was exactly what our forebears had in mind, a sacred constitutional right, as old as the 14th Amendment itself.
The louder liberals talk about some ancient constitutional right, the surer you should be that it was invented in the last few decades.
In fact, this alleged right derives only from a footnote slyly slipped into a Supreme Court opinion by Justice Brennan in 1982. You might say it snuck in when no one was looking, and now we have to let it stay.
