An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 2 March 2012
I didn’t hear it, but evidently, Rush Limbaugh said something that got a lot of folks’ knickers in a twist.
“What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her?” Limbaugh said on his radio show on Wednesday. “It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.”
Hmmm… That’s it? That’s what he said? And even Boehner is having issues? Why? Show me where what Rush said wasn’t the truth. If this broad wants us to pay for her to be able to have ‘guilt free sex’, what would you call it? Since when it is my responsibility to pay for someone like Fluke to get her hootchie on? It’s not! And what Rush said described it quite well. We pay for her to spread her legs and that would make her a slut…a prostitute, enabling her to be irresponsible for her own actions. Even the White House is making excuses for her behavior. And it makes us pimps. I don’t particularly like that idea.
“The fact that our political discourse has become debased in many ways is bad enough. It is worse when it’s directed at a private citizen who was simply expressing her views on a matter of public policy,” Carney said.
Sorry dude….she’s no longer a private citizen. She went before Congress to pretty much demand that I pay for her hootchie habits. No. It’s not my responsibility. It’s not yours either. If she wants to spread her legs for any ol’ Tom, DICK or Harry, that is her business. And SHE should be the one to pay for her ‘fun’. If she can’t afford it, cross your legs, ya dumb broad! Abstinence is the only sure fire way! People getting their panties in a wad because Rush Limbaugh spoke the truth is pretty flippin’ ridiculous! That includes the Speaker of the House, Carney, the POTUS, or anyone else who has a problem.
When it comes to endorsements, Mitt Romney has a long list of supporters in the Republican establishment. Here’s one a wee bit outside that category: rock star Ted Nugent.
The Motor City Madman tweeted today that he’s “concluded this goodman will properly represent we the people,” BuzzFeed reports.
Nugent, a noted gun enthusiast and member of the National Rifle Association board, had been without a candidate in the GOP presidential race. He wrote a column last year that he was “wango-tango-giddy” for a race between President Obama and Rick Perry, but the Texas governor dropped out before the South Carolina primary.
To say I’m flabbergasted would be an understatement! Seriously? Romney? Out of the four left standing, you pick Mittens??
Haywood County High School’s principal has resigned after a national civil rights organization said she made anti-LGBT remarks and threatened to expel gay students.
A statement released by the Haywood County School Board’s law firm, Purcell, Sellers & Craig Inc., said Principal Dorothy Bond tendered her resignation Thursday.
“The Haywood County Board of Education acknowledges its student body’s right to free speech,” the board said in the statement. “Further, the Haywood County Board of Education strives to provide an atmosphere of tolerance and diversity while maintaining high academic standards.”
So…what was it that she said that was so horrible that the ACLU had to butt their noses in?
In the news release earlier Thursday, the ACLU said it had received reports from parents and students that during a school assembly, Bond said “gay students are ‘not on God’s path’ and threatened to expel them if they publicly showed affection for members of the same sex.”
And? First, it happens to be the truth. If you read God’s Word, you’d find that homosexuality is considered an ‘abomination’. But since they have removed God from education, it’s an anything goes world, and it’s just peachy keen to let kids wander down the wrong path. And second, do the schools allow straight kids to make out in the hallways? PDA (public displays of affection) are typically frowned upon. If the straight kids can’t do it, and would likely be expelled, then why should the LGBT bunch be able to get away with such behavior? It has nothing to do with whether or not a kid is gay or straight, it has every thing to do with common courtesy, and proper public behavior. I guess that’s not taught anymore either, since it’s such a bastion of ‘tolerance and diversity’. Pfft! Nothing more intolerant than those who shout the loudest about tolerance. But this wasn’t the only ‘crime’ the principal committed.
ACLU officials said they were told by parents and students that Bond also said “life is over” for girls who became pregnant.
I dunno…is it just me, or wouldn’t you think parents would prefer their teenage daughters NOT to get pregnant? Ask any teenage mother how her life is going, and likely, they’ll tell you…’I have no life anymore’. So, once again, the principal was correct. Once you have a baby, you’re entire life is tied up with that child. You don’t get to go out with friends, you are always either working to pay for the sitter and a few essentials, or you are living off your parents, or you are taking tax payer money to provide for a child. If, as a pregnant teen, you decide to go the liberal route, and murder the baby, you will always have that in the back of your mind, plus the odds of breast cancer go up. I won’t even mention the botched job that could end up killing the girl as well. It does happen, and more frequently than people might think. Then there’s always that chance that because of that action, the odds of having children in the future, when you are grown up enough to deal with a child, you might not be able to conceive. There are a LOT of reasons why a teen’s life would be ‘over’. Wouldn’t you think that parents would want their kids taught the realities of life?
It really is way past time for us to bring back the concept of ‘shame‘!
Riot police had to be called to an Orlando mall on Feb. 23. Why? Because an unruly crowd of would-be shoppers couldn’t wait to get their hands on the new Foamposite One Galaxy by Nike.
In case you’ve never heard of it (I hadn’t either), this is a special-edition basketball shoe that Nike introduced just days before the NBA All-Star Game. The House of Hoops by Foot Locker at Florida Mall had ordered a bunch of the shoes and announced that they would be sold (at $220 a pair) on a first-come, first-served basis at midnight.
Hundreds of people showed up long before the sale was to begin. Police were called to maintain some semblance of order. But well before the sale began, several hundred people rushed the door.
Law enforcement officers in riot gear pushed back the crowd. The store decided not to open that night at all. By Friday morning, Foot Locker announced that it was canceling the All-Star weekend shoe release at six other malls because of “safety concerns.”
So a near-riot broke out because some spoiled brats couldn’t wait to get their hands on a $220 pair of tennis shoes. Isn’t that ridiculous?
Frankly, we shouldn’t be surprised. This is just one more consequence of the entitlement philosophy our children have been taught. It’s been going for several generations.
Color me shocked!
Obama’s Hidden Tax Hikes
EXCLUSIVE: It could be said that President Obama has never seen a tax hike he doesn’t like — whether it’s letting the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire, insisting on higher taxes for job creators, and yesterday calling on Congress to raise taxes on the oil industry. But as much as the President wants to raise taxes, Heritage has discovered that there are even more tax hikes hidden in his budget, adding up to a total of $2 trillion in higher taxes.
In a new report, Heritage’s Curtis Dubay uncovers Obama’s hidden tax hikes and finds that the President’s proposed $1.561 trillion tax increase over 10 years is much bigger than advertised. In fact, the President wants to raise taxes by $1.689 trillion – that’s $128 billion more than was reported by the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the President’s FY 2013 budget proposal.
What’s to account for the discrepancy? Dubay explains that OMB reports the tax hikes in areas other than the tax section, misleading readers into believing that the President’s tax hikes are smaller than they are in reality. Among them are the “Financial Crisis Responsibility Fee,” better known as the bank tax, which adds another $61 billion to the President’s tax hike total; a $44 billion tax hike from allowing the IRS to adjust a program integrity cap; a $48 billion increase of the unemployment tax; and a $1 billion hike of user fees for commercial navigation of inland waterways.
One of the better ‘tributes’ I’ve seen. He was a real person who had real, valid opinions, with an amazing joy of life.
We ALL need to be a Breitbart now! Take a page from his playbook, and continue to battle against the wrongs of the world.
