An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine called the Tea Party “the Donner Party” on Sunday, saying that the movement was “knocking off Republicans” and giving his party hope that it could win seats in races previous considered especially tough.
Uh…excuse me, Mr Kaine, sir, if I may….You are SO FULL OF CACA de TORO!
The Dems are evidently having a real tough time grasping the concept that so many with an “R” after their names, yet vote much of the time as the Dems, are the ones being shoved OUT. Many true conservatives are coming out victorious, and it just chaps their hides. Heh. Is it November 3rd yet?
Side note: If your education was so lacking in American history, you don’t know what the Donner Party was, read here. No doubt, the majority who stop by will be familiar with the tale.
1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.
2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;
3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:
10 And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
11 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering.
12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
“I need everybody here to go back to your neighborhoods, and your workplaces, to your churches, and barbershops, and beauty shops. Tell them we have more work to do. Tell them we can’t wait to organize. Tell them that the time for action is now,” he told the Congressional Black Caucus.
Translation: Convince friends and neighbors they really want to be slaves to the government!
