An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Violent crime continued to fall in 2009, even as gun sales reached an all-time high, according to statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). This is “proof positive that gun prohibitionists have been consistently and undeniably wrong,” the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said in a statement.
I’ve had quite a few conversations with cops who are advocates for concealed carry, even in states that violate the 2nd Amendment, like Wisconsin. To paraphrase: “The bad guys never know who might be armed, and willing to defend themselves.” Yep, as usual, the leftards are wrong!
Democratic District 6 Congressional candidate Brett Carter is asking U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to step aside for the good of Democratic candidates.
Carter, in an announcement made in Nashville on Thursday morning, said he sent a letter to Pelosi requesting her to step aside.
“I think it is incumbent on Speaker Pelosi to step aside,” Carter said.
Citing a report in the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal, where Carter was described to have an albatross around his neck in the form of Pelosi, said the divisiveness she generates hamstrings his and other Democratic candidates’ abilities to focus on the issues.
Even the Democrats don’t like her! *snicker*
There’s this young fella who sits in front of me at church, when he’s not on the boat, working, who’s quite a talent. Right now, he’s doing ‘cover’ songs, mostly classic country, and I came across one I like really well. Always been a Don Williams fan! Brennan Barrier might be famous someday,or he might not, but either way, he’s a good kid. And good kids aren’t all that common anymore.
I do wish he’d get someone else to work the video camera though. LOL If you want to check out more of his stuff, check ‘em out here.
I don’t remember hearing about the cartoonist, Molly Norris, being squirreled away by the FBI. Why?
The Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki – the radical who’s also been cited as inspiring the Fort Hood, Tex., massacre and the plot by two New Jersey men to kill U.S. soldiers – singled out artist Molly Norris as a “prime target,” saying her “proper abode is Hellfire.” (source)
Ah yes, the ever so “tolerant and peaceful Muslims, respecters of others”, yada yada yada. Yeah…we have all seen just how peaceful and loving they are, on a daily basis.
Norris views the situation with her customary sense of the world’s complexity, and absurdity. When FBI agents, on a recent visit, instructed her to always keep watch for anyone following her, she responded, “Well, at least it’ll keep me from being so self-involved!” It was, she says, the first time the agents managed a smile. She likens the situation to cancer—it might basically be nothing, it might be urgent and serious, it might go away and never return, or it might pop up again when she least expects it. (source)
Personally, I prefer the one with the bomb on his head. Much more accurate!

Actions speak a WHOLE lot louder than words.
Like, Is Sarah Palin Totally Conceited?
by Ann Coulter
In the October issue of Vanity Fair now on newsstands, Michael Gross reverts to junior high school to issue gossip-girl digs at Sarah Palin. Next up in Vanity Fair: “Sarah Palin Super Stuck Up; Thinks She’s All That.”
Gross dramatically reveals, for example, that her speech in Wichita, Kan., was “basically the same speech she gave 18 hours earlier to the Tea Party group in Independence (Mo.).”
A politician repeated lines in a speech? You must be kidding! Hello, Ripley’s? No, you cannot put me on hold. This is a worldwide exclusive. I’m sitting on a powder keg here.
