An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

…..a little girl, Rylee, due to be born in December, is in need of many prayers. You can read her story here. Daddy, Brad, use to be the youth minister at my church, and we watched as mommy, Brooke, grew big with big sis. The power of prayer saved little Maddie when she was in distress, so I know God will help Rylee too.
The family is missed, a LOT at church, but sometimes, God calls folks to different places. These are the most precious folks you’d ever want to know. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
How Many Times Did Goldwater Run For President Again?
by Ann Coulter
Washington elites’ heads exploded when Christine O’Donnell won the Republican Senate primary in Delaware last week. Luckily they were all reading The New York Times’ op-ed page at the time, so the mess their exploding heads created was minimal.
The establishment’s complaints are confusing. They say O’Donnell has a problem because she’s never held a job in the private sector (like our president), didn’t pay her taxes (like our treasury secretary), and had her house foreclosed on (like half of the electorate).
They also accuse her of saying crazy things — but she’s running for Joe Biden’s old seat, so this may be an advantage.
Social conservative groups are blasting Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the head of the National Republican Senatorial (Campaign) Committee, for accepting an invitation to speak at a Wednesday evening fundraiser hosted by a homosexual activist group.
In a letter to Cornyn, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, expressed “profound disappointment” that the Texas senator had agreed to participate in a fundraiser for the Log Cabin Republicans.
Honestly, I’m not really sure why this group continues to call themselves Republicans, unless it’s their intent to turn the whole party, and it’s members, into mega Dem-lite.
“In the last several years, these groups united to do political combat with social conservatives to insert liberal views into the Republican Party,” Perkins said.
Our intent is return the Republican party to it’s roots, and that includes the Biblical roots as well. Well, at least, that’s the way I see it. This nation was founded on those Biblical principles, and they worked really well, until the ‘progressives’ decided they wanted to set about to change things. Our rights come from God, NOT government. Social issues include the rules God set forth for us, as a society.
Here’s a reality check: Not all conservatives are alike. I know that’s a big shock to some folks, but it happens to be true. There ARE some issues that we DO agree on, like baby murder. I think I can safely say that ALL conservatives are against the blatant slaughter of innocent babies. If you’re ok with a woman ending the life of her unborn child, then I’d suggest you are NOT a conservative. Conservatives also agree on the smaller government issue. We’ve found, through experience of history, that BIG government is oppressive. BTW, that’s what we’ve got right now…..an oppressive government. And it’s not just Democrats who have pushed ‘the bigger, the better’ agenda. Republicans have a problem with ‘programs’ too. Ever wonder how civilization survived without constant government interference? There are a few others, but those two issues are off the top of my head.
I’ll be honest, I do believe homosexuality is a sin, but if y’all would stop trying to shove it down my throat, I promise not to try to shove heterosexuality down yours. Your issues will be between you and God!
What is Obama President of Again?
On December 1, 2009, when President Barack Obama announced his new Afghanistan policy after months of delay, Denise Young of Kokomo, Ind., who has a 22-year-old son serving in the war, told The Wall Street Journal what she wanted to hear from the commander in chief: “That he is going to let the generals make the decisions. They have asked for more troops. They should get them. There is safety in numbers.” Today, we learned from a sneak preview of Bob Woodward’s new book, Obama’s War, that President Barack Obama completely failed Mrs. Young.
Instead of listening to his generals, we learn that President Obama (who had zero military experience) was “at odds with his uniformed military commanders, particularly Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. David H. Petraeus,” who was then head of U.S. Central Command. When the Pentagon presented President Obama with a “low risk option” of an additional 80,000 troops that had the “best chance to contain the Taliban-led insurgency and stabilize Afghanistan,” Obama “bristled at what he saw as military commanders’ attempts to force him into a decision he was not yet comfortable with.”
Most everyone has heard about the city council in the small town of Bell, CA. If you haven’t, you aren’t really paying attention. What city mayor earns $800,000 a year??? That is DOUBLE the salary of the President of the United States! Evidently Oscar Hernandez felt he was more important the any POTUS.
Today, eight city council members were arrested in Bell, California for what Los Angeles County District Attorney labeled “corruption on steroids.” Thus far, every major news outlet that has reported on the story has omitted the fact that all eight individuals arrested are Democrats.
Now, why do you think the news reports that little tidbit? If they were Republicans, you can bet your eyeteeth it would have led ever sentence that was related to the story. But, since they were not Republicans, and in reality Democrats, so called journalists had to leave out that important FACT! In my opinion, they failed to include such a fact, because, they are all, in fact, Democrats themselves, and don’t like one of their own getting caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
You can pretty much guarantee, when no party affiliation is mentioned, the person in question is a DEMOCRAT!
A 19-year-old Marine from Hernando, who began a tour of duty in Afghanistan two weeks ago, was killed in action Monday, the office of Rep. Travis Childers, D-Miss., confirmed today.
PFC Joshua Ose, who would have been 20 years old Oct. 27, was mortally wounded by small arms fire while on foot patrol, according to a note sent out by Chip Hatcher, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Hernando, where Ose had attended.
Rest in peace young hero.
