An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Jane Russell, the brunette who was discovered by Howard Hughes and went on to become one of the biggest stars of the 1940s and ’50s, has died at age 89.
Russell’s daughter-in-law Etta Waterfield says the actress died Monday at her home in Santa Maria of a respiratory-related illness.
Hughes, the eccentric billionaire, cast Russell in his sexy, and controversial, 1941 Western “The Outlaw,” turning her into an overnight star.
She would go on to appear opposite such leading men as Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope, as well as fellow actress Marilyn Monroe.
If groups can award scholarships based on color, why can’t white men have them too? Does the United Negro College Fund give money to white males so they can go to college? How about the Hispanic Scholarship? I’m fairly sure those scholarships directed towards women don’t typically hand out a few bucks to the males. There are even scholarships for Muslims. We know there are numerous scholarships for athletics. It seems there are scholarship funds for every ‘group’ under the sun, EXCEPT for white males in the non-athletic type category. I think it’s high time they get their own fund. OR, how about we do away with color or ‘religion’ biased scholarships completely, and award the bucks to the most academically promising students? Just a thought.
An aside: I’ve never understood why they award full scholarships to young fellas who can barely speak coherent English. Ever watched some of them (not all, mind you….just some) on the idjit box being interviewed after a game?
I came across this little tidbit while snooping around the interwebs yesterday. It’s not news cuz we all know these people are seriously mentally deranged. Facts don’t factor into their agenda, and lies will be spread on a regular basis.
Aren’t the police suppose to be protecting those who work in the capital, and the capital itself? How is allowing thugs to remain in the building, after turning it into a trash bin protecting anyone? If the teachers went back to work, who are these people? I’m thinking anyone who doesn’t have a Wisconsin I.D. needs to be bussed back to wherever they came from.
What total B.S.! Why should a business have to pay benefits for a rude employee? It’s apparent that the woman was fired for ‘just cause’. Who is running that board anyway?
Ever dropped a jar of mayonnaise? Imagine trying to clean up thousands of jars.
It’s way past time to tackle that ‘third rail’ and put it out of OUR misery.
Classy. :? Can anyone speak these days without their comments being peppered with four lettered words? And no, I didn’t watch. Don’t give a flying flip about a bunch of left coast libs sucking up to each other.
Apparently, the Irish are pretty ticked off too!
I don’t think eons of tribalism will just vanish with the creation of a new country, but good luck with that anyway.
Please, keep that man away from the economy! Hasn’t he done enough damage? Come to think of it…..keep him away from ANYTHING important!
Does Mr. Massie really think those race baiters will really give an account? They talk big, but have no facts, or proof, to back their rhetoric.
We should ALL mourn the slaughter of the innocent!
I wasn’t aware the U.S. had invaded Tunisia and Egypt. :? I certainly don’t support propping up dictators, but I also don’t think it’s a real good idea to let the Islamists take control of ANYTHING!
Just who is feeling better about the economy, other than the administration and their minions in the media? And why aren’t people up in arms about one of the BIG reasons we have such high prices at the gas pump?
Sorry. You don’t have a RIGHT to bankrupt the states.
Is the crazy man trying to encourage riots?
But it’s ok when Ahmanutjob murders people in the streets?
The lefties’ hero was a slut, as well as a killer. But then, we knew that.
This piece of garbage has been in power how long, and they are just now getting around to questioning ‘crimes against humanity‘? What took them so long???
1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying,
2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.
3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.
5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.
8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

So, the unions are behaving like spoiled children in Tennessee too. Peachy.
“What you have right now is 300 or so of us, standing and asking the state legislature to focus on what the priorities are right now, instead of attacking working people,” said Mary Mancini, executive director of Tennessee Citizen Action, which organized the event. “If they listen to us, well then that’s great. … If not, I can see this thing growing.”
Working people? I suppose all those who work hard for their money who are NOT in some publicly funded union aren’t considered working people? Only those who get paid out of the pockets of others are ‘working people’? Ever watched a bunch of those ‘working people’ on a job? Standing around, watching someone else work? Getting paid for taking breaks? Getting paid while trashing a state capital? Are those the ‘working people’ this jackass is talking about? If this clown is a ‘working person’, why the hell isn’t she at WORK on a week day? Hmmmm?????
Get your greedy hands out of MY pocket!
Protesters will have to clear out of the state Capitol by the end of the weekend so custodians can clean the building after days of nonstop demonstrations, officials announced Friday.
It was unclear whether the move could spell the end of demonstrations that have consumed the Capitol for nearly two weeks. Protesters said they would not give up. Some said they would not leave the building.
Doesn’t Wisconsin have a law against interfering with business? Well, IMHO, these over aged hippies are doing just that! Interfering with the business of running the state. Of course, they don’t give a damn. I’d venture a guess that a good 75% of them have no clue what they are protesting….just what their unions have told them. Wonder if any of them have read the bill? Or even bothered to listen to what Governor Walker has said about the bill. Do they ever consider the REAL world? I mean the people who are paying for their ridiculous benefits. Of course not! Because when it comes to the left>unions>Democrats>socialists>commies, “It’s ALL about ME!” Oh, they’ll tell ya it for the children, or for the poor, or whatever else pops into their little pointy heads at the time. Then, it becomes a mantra. Horse manure!
“Until this issue is resolved, we’ll remain here,” said Madison resident Amanda Postel. “You know what they say, ‘The longer the fight, the longer your chapter in the history books.”‘
Kid, your 15 minutes of fame is up! You’re the screamo reject from American Idol, and we have definitely had ENOUGH! the issue IS resolved.
The demonstrations have stretched on for 11 days as of Friday. The protesters have pasted signs all over the building’s walls, set up a day care center outside lawmakers’ offices and held ear-splitting drum circles all day long. Dozens of them have taken to sleeping overnight in makeshift camps in the building’s rotunda and corridors.
I can’t even imagine the stench in that beautiful building from the unwashed mass of brain dead robots!
Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, D-Kenosha, also condemned the new restrictions. Barca said the protests have been “completely peaceful” and the government should be flexible with people during the demonstration.
Peaceful? Really? Banging on glass doors and walls, beating drums nonstop? Abusive language? Attempting to destroy property? I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t seem very peaceful to me. And that’s not even mentioning the threats to the governor, the fear of those who work in the building for their safety. Seriously? Peaceful?
“They will have a lot of explaining to do if they start denying people those rights,” he said. “There’s the rules of the building and then there’s tradition.”
Here’s a clue, dude! “Collective bargaining” is not a ‘right’. Stealing money from the taxpayers to foot the bills (insurance and pensions) of the few is not a ‘right’. I’m afraid you leftards have confused rights with privileges, and it’s time to get back to the real world.
With a wary eye on Wisconsin, Republican leaders in several states are toning down the tough talk against public employee unions and, in some cases, abandoning anti-union measures altogether.
Indiana’s governor urged GOP lawmakers to give up on a “right to work” bill for fear the backlash could derail the rest of his agenda. In Ohio, senators plan to soften a bill that would have banned all collective bargaining by state workers. And in Michigan, the Republican governor says he’d rather negotiate with public employees than pick a fight.
In NO way should the GOP back down from these thugs! There are more of us than there are of them! Taking the coward’s way out will do NOTHING to help the GOP in the future, and may do irreparable damage with the MILLIONS of conservatives that are fed up with molly coddling a bunch of spoiled brats in their unions T-shirts!
These thugs have verbally, AND physically attacked people, and you want to play footsie with them? I don’t bloody well think so! GROW A PAIR and stand up to the thugs!
“I’m not going to apologize for spending money to service our members,” said UFT President Michael Mulgrew.
Does this statement (from article) strike anyone else as, well….rather odd? It sounds to me more like a bunch of ‘Johns’ heading to a whore house.
Next Step in Congress’ Fight for Marriage
This Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder sent his own version of a “Dear John” letter to the Speaker of the House, informing him that President Barack Obama’s Justice Department will no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in federal court. The letter clearly states that the decision was personally made by the President himself, who, supposedly just this week, came to the conclusion that DOMA violates “the equal protection component of the Fifth Amendment” of the U.S Constitution. This purely partisan act is completely consistent with both President Obama’s unprecedented politicization of the Justice Department and the same-sex marriage movement’s end-run around for democracy.
