An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

The U.S. Department of Justice is defending computer hacking laws that make it a crime to use a fake name on Facebook or lie about your weight in an online dating profile at a site like Match.com.
Seriously? This is D’Bama’s Department of Justice, right? The one that’s run by Holder? The same guy that has sued states for enforcing the law against illegal invasion? The guy that allowed Mexican drug cartels to get a hold of a whole bunch of weapons….illegally, and is responsible for the death of a Border Patrol agent, and countless others? THAT Department of Justice? And they’re worried about whether or not a person fudges on their weight on Match.com, or uses an alias on Facebook? Seriously?????? THAT is a priority for the DoJ?
Yeah…. I know… I shouldn’t find this amusing, but doggonit! It is quite humorous after the hell these animals have put various cities through for the last couple of months!
You’ll never guess! A long lost relative, or something, from…. lemme see…. Nigeria? left me a substantial amount of money. Is that cool or whut? And just think, all I have to do is provide (urgently):
1. Your full personal details, names etc.
2. Your full banking details, where you wish your fund to be wired.
3. Your total contract/inheritance)–please indicate if your payment is for contract or inheritance.
4. Total amount expected
5. Copy of your international passport or driver’s license
6. Your Occupation
Yep…I need to get right on that! I wouldn’t want Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Honorable Minister for Finance, Federal Republic of Nigeria to be upset with me!
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka emails supporters:
They can take away the tarps and the tents. But they can’t slow down the Occupy Wall Street movement.
There have been police raids on Occupy Wall Street in Oakland, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; Denver; Albany, N.Y.; Burlington, Vt.; and Chapel Hill, N.C.—and now, last night in New York’s Zuccotti Park—orchestrated by politicians acting on behalf of the 1%.
But the 99% is undaunted. Occupy Wall Street’s message already has created a new day. This movement has created a seismic shift in our national debate—from austerity and cuts to jobs, inequality and our broken economic system.
Show your solidarity by attending a Nov. 17 bridge action near you…
Trumpka lies. Well, he’s a Democrat and a union thug. Of COURSE he lies! I think it’s in their DNA. You see, these are not the 99%. They don’t represent 99% of us country loving Americans. And these useless idiots have no idea just how good they have it in mommy’s basement. They’d rather “live” in a third world country, created by themselves.
I’m not much of a conspiracy nut type person. I find most of those types to be lacking in common sense. But ya know, when you watch this kind of crap, day in and day out, ya start thinking about just what might, and possibly could, happen in the next few months, or years. What I see is a group of nasty useless idiots, being used by a number of organizations, promoting the destruction of the Republic we hold so dear. Are we going to let this happen? Well, the folks I know have every intention of pushing back if, or when, that day comes.
23 December 1776, Thomas Paine said, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” We are seeing such days again. Are we ready? Have we prepared ourselves… mentally, emotionally, and physically? And most importantly, spiritually?
“You ask what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terror. Victory however long and hard the road may be. For without victory there is no survival.” Winston Churchill ~ 13 May 1940 We are in the fight for our lives, our liberty, and our country.
Even though these ‘comebacks’ are specific for the bozos who are pushing the recall of Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker, it seems to me they could be used for a variety of purposes involving liberal lunacy.
5) “Sorry, no time, I’m on my way to work. I realize that’s a concept you’re probably not familiar with.”
4) “Gee, I’d like to sign, but I got a paper cut tearing-up my AFSCME membership card.” (insert the union of your choice)
3) “If you think I’m going to sign that, you’ve been drinking too much Johnny Walker.” (favored adult beverage of the area)
2) “Sorry, but I’m saving my hands for ripping-out every Recall Walker yard-sign I see.” (can be used with any name or political race)
1) “SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!”
Blasting the congressional “creatures of Washington” for being overpaid and detached from the struggles of the people outside the Beltway, Texas Gov. and GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry vowed Tuesday to eliminate federal agencies, set term limits for federal judges and push for a part-time Congress where both members’ pay and office budgets are sliced in half.
Now that’s something I can get behind! Serving in Congress was never meant to be a life long career! And heaven knows, there are many judgeships that should be totally eliminated, and there should NEVER be a single judge sitting on the bench for the rest of his/her life.
“I do not believe Washington needs a new coat of paint, it needs a complete overhaul,” Mr. Perry said, according to prepared remarks. “We need to uproot, tear down and rebuild Washington, D.C. and our federal institutions.”
A total understatement! It may not have literally been originally a swamp, but it sure has turned into one, in a manner of speaking. I still have not decided who I’m supporting in the primaries. I do know who I WON’T be voting for, so that narrows it down a teensy bit. But one thing is for sure, when it comes to the general on 6 November 20212, I will be expecting a late birthday present…. a brand spankin’ new President of the United States!
Good riddance! (emphasis mine)
The NYPD arrested 200 protesters as they moved in on Zuccotti Park early this morning and cleared out the thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters who had taken over the space for nearly two months.
Mayor Bloomberg, who called the decision to boot the protesters “mine and mine alone,” said protesters would be allowed back into the Lower Manhattan park but not with their tents and sleeping bags.
So, what took him so long????? Oh…wait a minute….he’s a libtard, isn’t he! And isn’t his girlfriend on the board of the owners of the park? That chanting “Whose park? Our park!” is a lie, since it’s privately owned. Silly slobs!
But the city’s victory is headed to court at 11:30 a.m.: This morning the National Lawyers Guild announced it had received a restraining order against the city ordering the mobs be allowed back in along with their tents and sleeping bags.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that ‘judge’ is a flaming liberal. What’cha think? Seriously, considering the list of crimes that have been committed at the so called OWS pig styes, and since the libs apparently have a seriously issue enforcing the laws, I’m thinking he would have to be, wouldn’t you?
Big Journalism has a list of the crimes and locations of where the crimes were committed, although, I’m thinking there are quite a few that have gone unreported, and a few more that should be added to the list from October 28. And this is the bunch Obama compares to the Tea Party rallies? Gee, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of any such crimes being committed at ANY Tea Party rally, ANYWHERE in the country! Oh, there have been fabricated incidents of racism and such, but no evidence has ever been found, unlike the bigotry that is spewed by the OWS crowd!
A large crowd of protesters went north to Foley Square, while others headed to Canal Street and Sixth Avenue.
“What do you mean I’m done? What law did I break?” screamed a man as he was arrested and marched out of the park.
“I’m an anarchist, I’m not leaving this park,” said Asa Lowe, who was binding the hands of Amina Malika, 17, and Mesiah Hameed, 16, to a tree in the center of the park.
“I don’t give a f–k what they do,” said Hameed.
The anti-greed demonstrators were told they could return to Zuccotti Park in “several hours” after it was “cleared and restored for its intended use.”
Where do they get this “anti-greed” BS? They aren’t anti-greed! They are instead, quite greedy as a matter of fact, cuz they want what belongs to you and me! And don’t want to earn for themselves! And excuse me, but shouldn’t 16 and 17 year olds suppose to be in school? And why are they being tied to a tree? Sounds like a crime to me. I think these people have a very limited vocabulary since the majority can only speak in four lettered words.
Ok, I’m disgusted enough for now. Go read the whole article here.
The Fall of the USSR and the Debate over Russia
Twenty years ago, the world watched the Soviet Union fall. The regime that was “planted by bayonets,” as President Ronald Reagan once described it, did not take root, and ultimately the empire that once walled itself off from the West with an Iron Curtain could not shield its people from seeing the shining light of democracy.
Next Tuesday, when the Republican presidential candidates come together to discuss foreign policy and national security in a debate presented by The Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute on CNN, they should remember the lessons that the fall of the USSR taught us, but they should also look ahead to the challenges that remain in Russia and around the world today. Chief among those challenges are those brought about by the Obama Administration’s pursuit of a “reset” in relations with Russia.
