An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Is this proof there is no intelligent life in Madison, Wisconsin? Maybe…maybe not. What is does prove, however, if the selfishness of the left, and their inability to understand common courtesy. Even the head of Capital security is incapable of doing HIS job. Congratulations once again to Wisconsin for being a laughing stock to the rest of the country. These so called ‘teachers’ are way too immature to teach any children, no matter what age.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson and other establishment civil rights leaders scolded South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley earlier this year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day no less, for her state’s voter identification law. They reminded her that her Indian ancestry (Gov. Haley’s parents are from Amritsar in India’s Punjab Province) makes her a minority.
NAACP president Benjamin Jealous, a hostile opponent of ballot security measures, said that — by participating in King Day observances — Governor Haley is “willing to deify the dreamer and desecrate the dream.”
A more solemn Jackson intoned: “She couldn’t vote before 1965, just as I couldn’t.”
I wonder if anyone bothered to point out to these poverty pimps that the reason they couldn’t vote was because DEMOCRATS wouldn’t let them? Naw….probably not!
Here’s a fact. Nikki Haley couldn’t vote until 1990 because she was born in 1972. There were no more racial barriers to her voting then and none exist today.
Criminy! She’s still just a baby. Ok, now I feel really old! ’72 was the first time I ever voted. sigh…
On January 19, two days before the 2012 South Carolina primary, the state attorney general, Alan Wilson informed the Justice Department that a study of the Department of Motor Vehicles records and voting records indicates that 953 votes were cast on behalf of dead people in past South Carolina elections.
Apparently, not even dying can prevent people from voting! I wonder how I can find out if my parents have been voting?
Seriously, if these people are so worried about voting rights, how about being concerned with the voting rights of the living? How about concerning themselves with the right of EVERYONE to vote….legally! Oh, wait a minute. I forgot. Silly me! That’s not how the left does things. Legal only counts if their guy wins. To hell with legitimate votes. Don’t you ever wonder if that woman hadn’t suddenly discover boxes of ballots in the trunk of her car, if that non funny ‘comedienne’ would be sitting in the Senate right now?
Obama’s Friends Win Big in Budget
You don’t need to log on to President Barack Obama’s Facebook page to find out who his friends are, and you don’t need to read tea leaves, gaze into a crystal ball, or consult a psychic to learn where his priorities lie. No, you only have to take a look at his 2013 budget, just released on Monday, to see what kind of company the president keeps and to what extent he will go to lend his pals a helping hand.
The folks seated at the president’s head table haven’t changed much in the past few years — the only difference is how much is being served up in the taxpayer-funded buffet. As in the past, the president has plenty of handouts for his big labor buddies. His budget delivers a fourth consecutive annual deficit exceeding $1 trillion — and that spending goes to yet another round of not-so-shovel-ready construction projects and government “investments” totaling $178 billion. Heritage’s Patrick Knudsen writes that the spending includes the president’s favored road, bridge, and school construction projects, but “then they go alarmingly beyond the usual ‘infrastructure’ arguments to fund teachers’ pay.” In other words, unions representing the construction site and the classroom win big.
