An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 29 February 2012
Today was mostly uneventful…unfortunately. I was really hoping Brat Jr would pop that melon, being the 29th and all. sigh… BUT, according to the doc, he is moving down to where he will start making her life a living hell soon. *snicker* We also thought since had started dilating, she would have gone a wee bit more, but no….of course not.
Listening to the little bugger’s heartbeat made question all those people who want to be able to kill a child this far along. He’s a living being, a creation of God, and not disposable like just so much garbage. And on that note…
If the kid hasn’t made an appearance by the 11th, they will induce. I was kind of hoping I would be headed back home with loads of pictures and video of a tiny person by then. Ah well, I’m fairly sure the Mr will be able to handle things a bit longer….just in case.
One thing that rather bugs me….Rick Santorum is gonna be in Jackson on Friday. However, family trumps politics, even an election year as important as this.
12:30 PM – Jackson
313 S. Church St
Just in case, y’know. He’s also going to be in Memphis, too.
3:15 PM – Memphis
Parking lot on the corner of Poplar Ave. and Crestmere Pl.

If anyone goes, takes pictures, K?
Davy Jones, the lead singer of the pop group The Monkees, died Wednesday at the age of 66, his publicist confirmed to Fox News.
“The only thing we can do is confirm that he has died of a heart attack at Indiantown, Florida this morning,” his rep Helen Kensick told Fox News. “We will have more later.
The local medical examiner released a statement Wednesday confirming that they had been notified of the singer’s death.
“The District 19 Medical Examiner’s office has been notified of the death of Mr. Davy Jones,” spokeswoman Rebecca Shortridge said. “We are currently evaluating whether or not the medical examiner’s office will take jurisdiction.”
Jones, who last performed Feb. 19 in Oklahoma, formed the Monkees in 1966 with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.
I’m feeling really old right now. I don’t think there was one girl way back when that didn’t have a ‘crush’ on Davy.
I think it had something to do with the accent. As best I can remember, I don’t think I bought that album. Album…that’s one of those very old, black vinyl things…round , stuck it on a ‘record player’ , and you could hear music coming out of the speakers. I know….weird, isn’t it.
It’s kind of disturbing to realize that your childhood memories, crushes, and heroes are dying off.
I have my doubts!
Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.
The Justice Department will defend against any legal challenge to the new Obama administration mandate to force employers to provide abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception, even if it goes against their conscience, Attorney General Eric Holder told a House subcommittee Tuesday.
The Department of Health and Human Services rule, part of Obamacare, violates the freedom of conscience for Catholics and other religious groups that expressed their objections to the mandate, opponents say. Already there is litigation asserting that the rule violates the First Amendment’s guarantee to free exercise of religion.
And may the REAL Force be with them! Isn’t it odd that Holder refused to prosecute what was clearly voter intimidation, but can’t be concerned that his boss’ plan murders children, and forces those who find such a practice abhorrent to pay for it? This is NOT about ‘women’s health’.
“I think I would respectfully disagree in the sense that I don’t think the rule that HHS promulgated was one that ran counter to the religious prohibitions that are contained in the First Amendment,” Holder said.
“That’s especially true looking at the compromise the president and Secretary [Kathleen] Sebelius put in place,” Holder told the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.
Wouldn’t you think that a lawyer would understand the U.S. Constitution better? You see, that document was written FOR the people, limiting what government can, and cannot do! The government cannot force a religion on the people, and they cannot force religions to go against their faith. Forcing religious organizations to violate their faith is violating their 1st Amendment RIGHT! The RIGHT that is God given. Forcing people to commit a sin? No…they do NOT have that power, as stated BY, not just the Constitution, but in a Book that was written long before they were a “gleam”, with the inspiration of the Hand of God. HE trumps Obama, Sebelius, Holder, and the other tools of evil.
President Barack Obama announced a change to the original rule that would have technically allowed religious institutions such as Catholic hospitals or schools to get an exemption from paying for these drugs, but instead require insurance to provide it for “free.” That so-called compromise would still require religious institutions to pay for insurance that provides the “free” services.
They really do think we’re all stupid. Apparently, it totally confounds them when they find out we are not! There is no such thing as “free”!
White House Wants to Keep Gas Prices High
With the national average of gas prices hitting $3.65 a gallon, nearing $6 in some parts of the country, and poised to head even higher, America’s families are wondering when the bleeding at the pump will stop. But for Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu, those steep prices aren’t even a concern. In fact, he says his goal is not to get the price of gasoline to go down.
Chu delivered those stunning remarks in testimony before Congress yesterday. When Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) asked Chu whether it’s his “overall goal to get our price” of gasoline lower, Chu said, “No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy.”
