An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Elmer Fudd makes more sense than this woman!
Just what is it about Democrats and ethics? Do they have an allergy to ‘em or something?
It seems to me that battling a beetle would be a local problem, not a federal one.
I would think that any incursion of Islam into America would be harmful, for the entire country, not just Murfreesboro.
It doesn’t matter what we, or anyone else does. These animals will continue murdering until there is no one left to kill.
One more Obama scheme to bilk the country. It’s OUR money, and we already know the carbon credit crap is nothing more than a scam!
Why don’t you morons just quit freakin’ spending?? Get the hell out of OZ and take a good hard look at what such stupidity has already done!
It’s nice to know that Rep Giffords is improving…..slowly but surely. Who knows…maybe one day soon, she can retake her seat in Congress. After all, she is one of the very few rational Democrats.
But waste money is what Congress does best!
Personal opinion: It would be money well spent to send these animals back to the 12th century, instead of bombing Yemen.
Corruption in Detroit. Gee, what a shocker.
And people wonder why the rest of the country is laughing at Wisconsin? There is no punishment for the thugs. Arrested and released doesn’t set a very good example. If you haven’t seen the video of the thug ‘zombies‘, prepare to be pissed.
There is something really wrong with the people in California.
A couple of questions here. One, what business is it of the Senate what a bank charges in fees. Two, if a bank raises it’s fee to the merchant, the merchant passes on such fees to the consumer, and the consumer may find another bank to do business with, or not use a credit card at all. I’m a bit confused on this whole mess.
Because there are animals roaming the streets, kids can’t play in a park. Nice. How’s that gun ban working out for y’all?
It’s easy to see why Obamacare’s unpopularity grows substantially with every new detail that comes out. As former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D–CA) infamously noted, we had to pass the bill to find out what was in it. Well, now we know.
Many businesses affected by Obamacare—those not lucky enough to receive the coveted waivers—now view their slimming insurance options with extreme caution.
A shocking new study out by McKinsey and Company finds that 30–50 percent of employers who currently provide health insurance for their employees are likely to drop their coverage. Yes, that’s right. Even if you like your insurance, you will not be able to keep it, as President Obama often and famously promised.
The short answer……YES!
But what the hell are you doing??????
The Obama administration has intensified the American covert war in Yemen, exploiting a growing power vacuum in the country to strike at militant suspects with armed drones and fighter jets, according to American officials.
Well, it’s not very ‘covert’ now, is it.
On Friday, American jets killed Abu Ali al-Harithi, a midlevel Qaeda operative, and several other militant suspects in a strike in southern Yemen. According to witnesses, four civilians were also killed in the airstrike. Weeks earlier, drone aircraft fired missiles aimed at Anwar al-Awlaki, the radical American-born cleric who the United States government has tried to kill for more than a year. Mr. Awlaki survived.
And how much did this little soiree cost the American taxpayers? Let’s see….about 70K per missile times X number of drops. Then add in the cost of the jets, and the fuel, etc. For a couple of pond scum. It might be a wee bit less expensive to hire a few local sharp shooters to take ‘em out. Less likely to blow up civilians too. All that, and they still didn’t get the little pig. Brilliant!
The recent operations come after a nearly year-long pause in American airstrikes, which were halted amid concerns that poor intelligence had led to bungled missions and civilian deaths that were undercutting the goals of the secret campaign.
So, this has been going on since 2009? Excuse me, but where is the outrage from the left? You know…the Code Pinko types. Why are they not out in from of the White House, chanting their catchy little hate phrases?
A senior Pentagon official, speaking only on condition of anonymity, said on Wednesday that using force against militants in Yemen was further complicated by the fact that Qaeda operatives have mingled with other rebels and antigovernment militants, making it harder for the United States to attack without the appearance of picking sides.
Seriously? I thought we were suppose to be on the side of right. What difference does it make if it looks like we’re taking sides against thugs? I’m baffled.
The American campaign in Yemen is led by the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command, and is closely coordinated with the Central Intelligence Agency. Teams of American military and intelligence operatives have a command post in Sana, the Yemeni capital, to track intelligence about militants in Yemen and plot future strikes.
Does the New York slimes ever consider the fact that by printing this kind of thing, they could be putting Americans at risk? No…of course not. It doesn’t matter to them one whit!
The extent of America’s war in Yemen has been among the Obama administration’s most closely guarded secrets, as officials worried that news of unilateral American operations could undermine Mr. Saleh’s tenuous grip on power. Mr. Saleh authorized American missions in Yemen in 2009, but placed limits on their scope and has said publicly that all military operations had been conducted by his own troops.
Wasn’t Obama an anti war candidate? Didn’t he say he was going to pull the troops out of Iraq? Afghanistan? And then goes and gets us involved in Libya, and as it turns out, has had us involved in a civil war in Yemen for 2 freakin’ years? Can we say hypocrite???
Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen is believed by the C.I.A. to pose the greatest immediate threat to the United States, more so than even Qaeda’s senior leadership believed to be hiding in Pakistan. The Yemen group has been linked to the attempt to blow up a transatlantic jetliner on Christmas Day 2009 and last year’s plot to blow up cargo planes with bombs hidden inside printer cartridges.
Fine. Let’s bomb the hell out of them, and move on. I’m getting pretty fed up with the wishy washy way the PC bunch handles any war. And yeah….if we’re using our assets to bomb, this is a war. Not some cutsey name anyone wants to tack on…..WAR! So, now we are fighting on FOUR fronts. Peachy.
“With Saleh’s departure for Saudi Arabia, where he continues to receive medical treatment, this isn’t a time for inaction,” said the spokesman, Mark Toner. “There is a government that remains in place there, and they need to seize the moment and move forward.”
I do hope the administration realizes those people over there are moon barking mad. They are barbarians, no matter WHAT they claim.
Question: Did Congress give it’s approval for this? Just how many other countries are we bombing these days?
