An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
I have no problem with my church members carrying guns. If you do, then perhaps you should find a different church, cuz apparently, you have a trust issue. Should all of them? Well, probably not. There are a few little ones that might have a problem, and a couple of elderly folks who aren’t physically able, but as for everyone else? I can’t think of a one I don’t trust.
Just one more glaring example of how incompetent the Obama administration really is! We see it daily with Napolitano, Joe Biden, etc. Why should one more extreme embarrassment for the country be so surprising?
What a novel concept! Actually keeping competent teachers, and tossing out the feckless, no matter how much time and money they’ve handed over to their union. Gosh! Maybe it’ll catch on? One can only hope!
Honestly, I think there are some who have unrealistic expectations. If you want to knock down a 100 mile long wall, you have to start with the first stone. Expecting half the wall to come down immediately, is a tad unreasonable. The same applies to the deficit, and spending. Congress never bothered to pass a budget. Almost half the fiscal year is gone. Now, while I’d like to see them cut all $100billion, it’s not exactly rational. HOWEVER, once this fiscal year is up, I expect them to cut the rest, plus another $100billion out of next years budget.
It’s the Chicago Way.
I remember the uproar from many years ago when everybody thought adding flouride to eh water was a real bad idea, but no one listened. Evidently, they should have! As the lady said…there’s that warning on the toothpaste tube….ya just don’t eat/drink poison! DUH!
For anyone who has ever watched someone suffer from the effects of cancer treatments, the idea of medical marijuana is a pretty good one. The problem with California, they have gone overboard, as is their norm. How many of those people walking into those pot shops are actually medical patients in NEED of a way to reduce the vomiting from the effects of medical procedures? Likely, less than half. I don’t think I’d trust a doctor who prescribes pot for depression, or a backache, or any number of things. That being said, if the federal government wants to increase their income, they should find a way to make REAL marijuana available to those who REALLY need it.
Exactly which ‘foreigners’ are to blame exactly?
Honestly, I really like Marsha Blackburn. I think she’s doing a fine job up there in D.C. and is sticking to conservative principles as much as possible. HOWEVER, this article brings to light something I see as a major problem. Money. Why is she fund raising? Why are any of our so called reps ALWAYS fund raising? They are suppose to go to D.C., represent the PEOPLE, do their job WE tell them to do, then go home. The thing that bugs me, and a lot of other people, if I’m not mistaken, is that all these politicians spend so much time on the campaign trail, they tend to forget why they were hired in the first place. Not saying Marsha has forgotten, just saying it’s a common theme.
I’m afraid Mr Obama has a fairly skewed view of what churches would be actually capable of achieving, if only the government would get OUT of their business!
There is no doubt in my mind the Islamists have been working behind the scenes since BEFORE all this started. We’re already seeing a domino effect. How much longer before even more ‘dominos’ join in?
Who comes up with these utterly ridiculous ideas during a time of war? And make NO mistake….we ARE at war! I don’t mean just in Iraq and Afghanistan either! The LAST thing we should be doing is reducing troop size!
Other than the essentials….like defense, for example, I wouldn’t mind seeing a shut down. Send those yahoos home. This was never meant to be a full time career, nor was the federal government created to run the entire country. Yep. Go home. Talk to those folks back home, and see what THEY say about the job y’all are doing in the Senate. Ask ‘em how they feel about how much of their money y’all have been squandering! And this time….actually LISTEN! Not with padded ‘townhalls’, but REAL people, from YOUR district…not the bussed in bozos from your favorite unions!
Nine years? That’s it? Why isn’t the SOB being stood up against the wall and shot? Nine years is nothing for these types….aka crazy people!
This could be a real interesting development for the new country of South Sudan. What do you do with so many people ‘going home’? Hopefully, it will be a peaceful transition for all involved.
As least a couple of folks are wise enough to state that one country should stay out of the business of another country, especially when they have their own ‘oppressors’ to deal with.
