An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for August 2011
A wide spectrum of black conservatives expressed outrage Wednesday at Rep. Andre Carson’s remark that tea party members would like to see black people “hanging on a tree” — and some even called on Carson to resign.
During a speech at a recent caucus event in Miami, the Indiana Democrat said conservative members of Congress would “love to see us [blacks] as second-class citizens,” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me . . . hanging on a tree.”
Carson, the whip leader of the Congressional Black Caucus responsible for organizing the black vote in Congress, also alleged that tea party activism stems from Jim Crow racism.
“Some of them in Congress are comfortable with where we were 50 or 60 years ago. But this is a new day with a black president and a black congressional caucus.”
Read the rest here.
When are these fools going to stop living in the past? When are the black Democrats going to admit it was their own party that worked hard to keep the black community enslaved, and continue to do so with the invisible chains of dependency? You’d think, instead working overtime to be divisive by spreading such blatant lies, they would be working to unite. However, I’m of the mind….they don’t want us united as a nation.
All I can say is that their bitterness will destroy them in the end. Such people have no business being in positions of leadership, and should apologize, then resign.
Liberals’ View of Darwin Unable to Evolve
by Ann Coulter
Amid the hoots at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry for saying there were “gaps” in the theory of evolution, the strongest evidence for Darwinism presented by these soi-disant rationalists was a 9-year-old boy quoted in The New York Times.
After his mother had pushed him in front of Perry on the campaign trail and made him ask if Perry believed in evolution, the trained seal beamed at his Wicked Witch of the West mother, saying, “Evolution, I think, is correct!”
That’s the most extended discussion of Darwin’s theory to appear in the mainstream media in a quarter-century. More people know the precepts of kabala than know the basic elements of Darwinism.
Top spokesmen for the Obama administration on Tuesday defended the White House’s issuance of “talking points” designed to shape how federal officials in this country and American diplomats serving abroad frame the upcoming 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Evil animals attacked our country, and murdered 3000 human beings. What is there to “shape”?
One set of guidelines urged U.S. officials to “minimize references to Al-Qaeda.” The documents cited the killing of Usama bin Laden as evidence that the terror network that plotted and executed the Sept. 11 attacks is becoming “increasingly irrelevant.”
I don’t care what they call themselves this week, or the next, they are all evil and attempting to minimize the horror caused by the pigs is ludicrous!
Another talking point instructed American officials overseas to seek to universalize the commemorative day by noting: “We honor all victims of terrorism, in every nation…whether in New York or Nairobi, Bali or Belfast, Mumbai or Manila, or Lahore or London.”
No offense to anyone who lost loved ones through the actions of such animals, and we honor those hundreds of thousands of innocents who have been slaughtered in the name of a false god, but 9/11 is a day Americans will never forget, nor should we, while it’s not a day that has such an impact on those in foreign countries.
The Obama administration can kiss my red, white and blue hind end!
And I’m one tired shufflin’ ol’ broad! I actually made it 2 days instead of the 3 I was expecting. I think I was in a big hurry to get back to my Mr, cats, and my very own bed! But I sure am paying for those extra hours spent in the truck now. Well, a couple of pain killers, and maybe some ‘frozen’ Kayro, and I’ll be good as new! Hmmmm…. Maybe not!
The Unemployment Empty Promise
Sometime next week—we don’t quite know when—President Barack Obama is due to announce his latest jobs plan designed to lift America out of its unemployment doldrums. And though we also don’t know the exact details of the plan, there’s a pretty good chance it will include several key components we’ve heard before, one of which is the extension of unemployment benefits.
Much like the President’s other likely initiatives, this idea isn’t a new one, and the White House has made the argument before that unemployment benefits are the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to stimulating the economy. In a White House briefing earlier this month, press secretary Jay Carney explained the rationale:
[Extending unemployment benefits] is one of the most direct ways to infuse money into the economy because people who are unemployed and obviously aren’t earning a paycheck are going to spend the money that they get. They’re not going to save it; they’re going to spend it. And unemployment insurance, that money goes directly back into the economy dollar for dollar virtually.
So it is—and when it goes back in the economy, it means that everywhere that those people—everyplace that that money is spent has added business. And that creates growth and income for businesses that then lead them to making decisions about jobs—more hiring.
The brief order by U.S. District Judge Sharon L. Blackburn means the law — which opponents and supporters alike have called the toughest in the nation — won’t take effect as scheduled on Thursday. The ruling was cheered both by Republican leaders who were pleased the judge didn’t gut the law and by opponents who compare it to old Jim Crow-era statutes against racial integration.
I must question the IQ level of those who compare attempting to stem the flow of illegals into our country with Jim Crow. Apparently, the education system has failed these people miserably. As I’m sure you are aware, at least I hope you are, it was the Democrats that enacted Jim Crow laws in the South. That same party that is always crying “racist”, and accusing their opponents of being guilty of what they are guilty of themselves. A rather useful tactic, but only if people don’t bother to educate themselves. Since it’s apparent that the public education system has failed miserably, citizens MUST learn these things on their own.
There are people coming into our country, without permission. That’s called breaking the law. It’s criminal, and criminals should be punished. Instead, the left and the amnesty whiners would prefer to reward them. Rewarding criminals creates more criminals. It is costing the taxpayers more than any of us can afford. Enforce the laws! Stop enabling the criminals!
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
It was that time again! And what better reason to come up to Wisconsin than to spend the day with some great folks? If you weren’t there, you missed one of the best times EVAH! And if Chris ever gets the DRQ up, I’ll link back to it. Heh. Now linked. Just remember….they’re all totally out of context.
Well, actually I got here (Wisconsin) early yesterday afternoon. But ya know, when ya get a couple of females in the same room, talking is involved, so I didn’t even bother to get my computer out of the suitcase. Heh. Not to mention, my nerves were frayed!
I hate driving through Chicago! What the blazes is wrong with those people? Some yahoo was doing at least 120 and missed my back end by inches. It’s a wonder I didn’t have a heart attack. And NO, I wasn’t just puttering along! I actually was keeping up with traffic. Speed limit….55. Most traffic moving at 70. Jeeeez! Why bother with the signs? Morons weaving in and out, barely fitting, running up people’s tail pipes. What’s the bloomin’ rush? Seems to me, folks would want to live to make it to their destination instead of wiping out themselves, and a LOT of others too. I just don’t get it! If that fool had hit me, we both would have been dead. *shakes head*
So, here I am, sitting in Chris‘ guest room, listening to Jamie weed whacking, or some such thing. Watching that woman wears me out. LOL How anyone can be so frantic and organized at the same time, I’ll never know……cuz I’m neither. :D I don’t know what she’s worried about….everything always turns out just fine, and if it doesn’t, no one cares. Heh. We love her anyways! I feel a bit guilty cuz I’m not really able to help her, but I’ve no doubt, if I was in her way, she’d run right over me. LOL THUD! Wouldn’t be a pretty picture.
It’s going to be a great afternoon, and there will be pictures, at some point, but in the meantime, I need a nap!
A war between good and evil. Will we let evil win just because we are worried we MIGHT offend someone? I’m offended that our so called elected officials won’t admit the fact that Islam declared WAR on the non Muslim world! I’m offended every time I hear of another innocent being murdered just because they don’t bow to a cult. I’m offended by every picture of a child whose head has been brutally hacked off! Evil must be destroyed, or it will destroy us!
The Right Strategy to Fight Terrorism
In what has been described as an ”act of international terrorism,” news agencies report that a suicide car bomb struck the United Nations building in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, on Friday. Though details are sketchy and there is no immediate claim of responsibility, if the attack is, indeed, an act of terrorism, it reaffirms what we already know: The world continues to face an ongoing threat–and America must be prepared for the next wave of terrorist attacks.
Since September 11, 2001, at least 40 Islamist-inspired terror plots aimed at the United States have been thwarted. And though all categories of successful terrorist attacks against U.S. targets (both at home and overseas) have been on a downward trend since 2005, the number of disrupted plots has risen considerably since 2007. In a new paper by The Heritage Foundation Counterterrorism Task Force, “A Counterterrorism Strategy for the ‘Next Wave,’” Heritage lays out steps that America should take to ensure a successful end to the long war against terrorism.
….or don’t debate ignorant fools! But once again, there was a “please moderate” in my email this morning. Same idiot. You’d think some people would learn, but obviously, that just isn’t possible with the irrational. So, once again, a complete copy and paste, uncensored:

Olbroad,,, Keep barking…..NO one cares….and remember one thing,
Always History has witnessed that it is TRUTH which always WINs. Morever, I m not threatening you. How can you think I can threaten to a MAD DOG which is just barking with out understanding. First read your Books(Throa/Bible) and can you reject our Prophet’s name is not present in them??? now can u accept that it is the TRUTH??? Lets have a decent talk. come up with your doubts…I will answer it patiently( if you have guts to digest the TRUTH) :). Waiting for ur reply…
Well, at least you figured out I am not a board. Congratulations! And since you don’t care, why do you keep sullying my blog? It is mine you know. I pay for it.
Yep….truth always wins in the end. God is truth, and I have no idea what Allah is. Some made up entity perhaps? I’m not real sure what you consider a threat, but most rational people would see “you will be beheaded” as a threat.
And now I’m a mad dog? I’m not mad, nor am I a dog. Not the prettiest lady walking, but a dog? Naw.
I’ve read my books, but I have no idea what a Throa is. Do you possibly mean Torah? Yes, I’ve read that too. And no, your so called prophet is not mentioned in either one. If you knew anything about your history, you’d know that murderous pedophile thug had not even been born when both when written. Silly boy!
As for doubts, I have none. I know who my Savior is, and I know He will triumph over evil. Evil being of Satan, which you seem to put a lot of stock in. For who but Satan would condone the murder of women and children? Who but Satan would encourage the mutilation of innocents? Who but Satan rejoices in the oppression of others?
Well, there’s my reply. Do us both a favor and find something constructive to do with your time, like learning to spell, learning the history of your cult, and figuring out just why you are so full of hatred.
A very good friend of mine is having surgery tomorrow morning. TWO total knee replacements! So, if ya could, spare a moment or two to pray that God guides the hands of the surgeon. Her name is Yvonne, and she is very special. I mean other than being the only adult at church that is shorter than me.
I have no idea who this guy is, but I thought this was rather amusing.
They continuously come up with the same, really stupid ideas, over and over, and always expect a different result.
Illinois started to create jobs as the national economy began to recover. But just when Illinois’s economy seemed to be turning around, lawmakers passed record tax increases in January of this year. Since then, Illinois’s employment numbers have done nothing but decline.
Data released today by the bureau confirms this downward trajectory. When it comes to putting people back to work, Illinois is going backwards. Since January, Illinois has dropped 89,000 people from its employment rolls.
