An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Mercedes Gonzalez was stopped for speeding — going 48 mph in a 40 mph zone — several days before her Overton High School graduation in May.
Because she did not have a driver’s license, the 18-year-old girl was detained and screened for deportation.
Let’s see here….the girl was breaking two laws before it was found out she was illegal. Sorry. No sympathy.
Gonzalez, who was born in Mexico and moved here when she was 11, was released on her own recognizance. She will appear in immigration court, but no date has been set. She did not want to comment on the case.
Her parent(s) broke the law. Granted, she didn’t have much say in the matter, but she is still here illegally.
“The undocumented student movement is, perhaps, the most impressive contemporary social movement in the U.S.,” said University of Washington professor Roberto Gonzales, who studies undocumented youth’s transition to adulthood. “Largely, through their own efforts, students have led coordinated national efforts to fight deportations and pressure elected officials to pay attention to them.”
Calling it a rose does not change it from a thorn. They are ILLEGAL! Plain and simple. Whether or not they came here willingly, or unwillingly, their parents broke the law, and by continuing the charade, they too, are breaking the law. Perhaps if some officials weren’t so eager to insult the hard working American people, this wouldn’t be an issue. Why are we forced to pay for the education of the children of those who flagrantly break our laws? Who thought that would be such a good idea?
Mercedes Gonzalez’s lawyers have asked federal agents to drop her case. Even if they do she will still be in legal limbo. Agents may drop deportation proceedings, but that simply puts undocumented immigrants right back in an illegal status waiting for the next traffic stop.
Excuse me, but if they are ‘undocumented immigrants’ they already have ‘ILLEGAL’ status! She is of age now. She could very well go back where she was born, and start the legal process of coming to this country. Here’s a thought… How about we DON’T allow the children of illegals to attend the schools paid for by LEGAL taxpaying citizens? And how about closing the border while ejecting all those who thumb their noses at our laws?

A suicide attacker blew up his sport utility vehicle packed with explosives outside of a small medical clinic in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday, killing at least 25 people, Afghan authorities said. Some reports put the death toll as high as 60.
A ‘suicide attacker’? Is that the new PC way of saying murderous muslim thug?
The bomber drove up to the medical clinic in an SUV, and clinic guards tried to prevent him from entering the center’s compound, said Mohammad Zaref Nayebkhail, the provincial health director. “The driver didn’t stop and he entered the compound and reached the main building of the health center, where the truck detonated,” Nayebkhail said.
A medical clinic. Yeah….that’ll really garner sympathy for your ’cause’….whatever the hell that might be!
The Taliban denied responsibility for the bombing. Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the movement, told The Associated Press in a phone interview that “this attack was not done by our fighters.”
Does it really matter which group that calls itself what? They can call themselves whatever they want…Taliban, al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood….they are all the same. Murdering in the name of some devil just for the sake of murdering is beyond evil.
Late Friday, another blast — this one caused by a bicycle rigged with explosives — ripped through a bazaar in the Khanabad district of Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan, killing at least 10 people, including a police officer. At least 24 people were wounded in the attack, according to an Interior Ministry statement.
What kind of people breeds such abject hatred for the innocent? Oh yeah….Islamonazis! The country is corrupt. Let them destroy themselves. Better yet, how about we win this war! Bring our service members home and blow the whole works off the planet.
Tennessee Federation of Republican Women’s Convention Oct 21~23
The event is known as “Ladies Day on the Hill” where Republican women across the state of Tennessee are invited guests to the House Chambers at the State Capitol. During this event the TNFRW president, Susan Witcher honored the women serving our state with a lovely plaque of appreciation and one of those honored guests was our Sen. Dolores Gresham.

Gov Haslam and Lt Gov Ron Ramsey both addressed the group and extended their warmest thanks for the victories of the Republican party due in part to the TNFRW. Both men were greeted with standing ovations from the crowd.
Later in the morning the entire group was invited to a wonderful luncheon at The Hermitage in Nashville. Our Rep. Vance Dennis was the honored guest at the table of the Pickwick Republican Women. After lunch the women were taken to the Governor’s Executive Mansion where they were warmly greeted by First Lady Chrissy Haslam and served coffee and dessert with a tour of the residence.
The TNFRW Convention will be held at the Pickwick State Park Inn Oct. 21 ~ 23. During the event, Kay Hodgson, Convention Chairman, was given the opportunity to address the crowd in the House Chambers to encourage the ladies and their families to attend the upcoming convention this fall. She extended a warm welcome to them on behalf of the Pickwick Republican Women, the Hardin County Republican Party and chairman Bob Yeiser, the Hardin County Mayor Kevin Davis and the Savannah Mayor Bob Shutt.
