An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 17 April 2012
These libtards seriously PISS ME OFF! I’m so bloomin’ sick of their hypocrisy! They can threaten the lives of presumed innocents, and what do we get? Silence! But let one conservative make an off the cuff remark, and all hell breaks loose! Vipers! The lot of ‘em! We’ve been insulted, demeaned, and threatened, but that’s ok. The 1st Amendment only applies to the mentally deranged commies! Ignorant bastards!
Ted Nugent is hitting the pavement for GOP president hopeful Mitt Romney. The rocker called for attendees of the National Rifle Association’s convention to go out and recruit thousands of people to vote for Romney in the coming election. Nugent said, ”Our government is wiping its a– with the Constitution.” During an on-site interview, he also told the crowd, ”We’ve got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution. Does everybody here know that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense? That sounds like a stoned hippie. That doesn’t sound like a Supreme Court anything.” The musician went on to say: ”If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” A representative for Nugent didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
If you haven’t guessed, I am EXTREMELY conservative, but not all conservatives think alike, anymore than all women are the same, or all children come out of same cookie cutter. We do disagree on certain points, but as a whole, those who are conservative are more concerned with the state of our flailing nation under the ‘leadership’ *roflmbo* of the Obama administration, than our own personal agenda. This country will not survive another four more years of the anti-American POTUS. In all honesty, we’ll be damned lucky if we will be able to recover in 40 years from the damage already inflicted. Another 4 years of the radical leftist and there will be no turning back!
So, if it comes down to Mitt being the official nominee, then I will vote for him. ANYBODY but Obama would do a better job in aiding our recovery. The reputation of the USA has been tarnished, respect is at an all time low, and we have become the laughing stock thanks to the Apologizer!
I will say, that the RNC elites have made a major mistake is just assuming we will blindly follow along with their agenda. IMHO, I would suggest that we start working on a third party strategy now, and allow the RNC fall go the way of the Whigs. They have ceased to be the party of Reagan, and do not express the views of the conservatives. A RINO is no better for this country than a flaming liberal, it just takes them longer to get to the point of no return.
There is one major difference between Obama and Romney. Romney actually DOES believe in the Creator. Obama believes he IS the creator.
What Tax Day Could Feel Like in 2013
In addition to today being Tax Day, it’s also, coincidentally, “Tax Freedom Day” — meaning that it has taken from January 1 until now for Americans to earn enough money to pay this year’s federal, state, and local tax bill — 29.2% of all our income. In other words, for the first 111 days of the year, everything you earned went straight to Uncle Sam. Compare that to back in 1900, when Americans paid only 5.9% of their income in taxes and Tax Freedom Day came on January 22.
The Tax Foundation reports that because of higher federal income and corporate tax collections, Tax Freedom Day came four days later this year than last. And the bad news is that unless Washington takes action, it will take working Americans 11 more days to meet next year’s tax burden.
When David Brock applied for tax-exempt status for Media Matters for America, he told the IRS exactly who his group would be fighting against: businesses, wealthy Americans and conservative Christians.
“Media Matters for America (MMA) believes that news reporting and analysis by the American media, with its eye on profit margin and preservation of the status quo, has become biased,” read the group’s application, obtained by The Daily Caller, “It is common for news and commentary by the press to present viewpoints that tend to overly promote corporate interests, the rights of the wealthy, and a conservative, Christian-influenced ideology.”
Ya know, I’d find such statements downright hilarious if I thought these people were actually kidding. But sadly, they are not. I’d like to tell you people at MMA that if Christians had control of the media, you wouldn’t be watching 90% of the garbage you see on TV these days, and that includes the flippin’ commercials!
Media Matters has made no secret of its adherence to progressive principles, but flagging Christianity as having undue influence in media is the latest revelation about the group’s treatment of religion.
I honestly don’t think they realize just how much influence the opposite of Christianity has influenced all media. And that’s quite sad. From the evening news, to the car commercials, we have seen a complete turn around in our society. From shame to anything goes, sending the message to young girls that it’s ok to be a ‘slut’, as long as you dress like one…get your sexy little girl panties and drive the boys wild. Seriously? Do you actually believe that if TRUE Christians had the sort of influence that MMA says it does, that we’d be seeing a commercial for “Three and a Half Men” with a major character stating ‘your mother and my mother are having an affair’? Would we be seeing Bones and Booth having a baby, living together, with no hint of matrimony? Would trash like Jersey Shore be renewed season after season? Seriously? Do they really believe that any true Bible believing, washed in the Blood, Christian would allow such garbage to be shown on their television, if they had so much influence in the media? How about that Seventeen Magazine? Have you seen a copy of that lately? I wouldn’t line my cat box with the garbage they print, but young girls are influenced by the pictures they see of those refugee from Auschwitz type models, and many end up starving themselves to death because they feel they are ugly. What is ugly is what the media portrays as beautiful and normal.
I won’t even get into what they pass off as ‘music’. “Bitches”? “Hos”? Violence, screeching unintelligible lyrics, that if most parents could understand, would find itself in the shredder. At least I hope it would!
Unfortunately, there are far too many churches in this country who have turned a blind eye to the negative message the media presents, all in the name of diversity, acceptance, and tolerance. I honestly wish that Christianity had as much influence in the media as this bunch of leftists would like to portray. Hollywood would produce movies without a load of four lettered words that add nothing to the dialogue, there would be an obvious lack of gratuitous sex, and boys and girls could find some role models that didn’t encourage them to destroy their lives with binge drinking and drug use, casual sex, and baby murder.
As parents, we have an obligation to teach our kids right from wrong. I, sadly, was a bad influence on my kid. Yep, I was a really bad mother. If I had had more positives in my life, than negatives…sadly, of my own choosing, perhaps I could have become a better role model for her. Thankfully, she overcame my stupidity, and has turned out much better than I had hoped.
Am I a prude? Yep…reckon so….now. Through my life, I have learned many lessons, one of which dragged me kicking and screaming OUT of that world, and into one where I have found true joy. We should be so lucky that the media would present the TRUE side of Christianity, and be so influenced.
IMHO, this organization does not qualify as tax exempt, as it’s stated purpose for receiving it was based on complete lies!
A confession: Gotta be honest….in the Old Testament, and The Tanach, I kind of glaze over all the names I can’t pronounce, and the towns that may, or may not, still be in existence. You know, the ‘this was given to that tribe, and all the towns and such. Yep, I am actually reading both, at the same time. I read the NKJV, then the English translation, of The Torah, The Prophets, and The Writings. Obviously, there isn’t a New Testament in there. But it has helped me to understand better what I am reading. I highly recommend it. They are pretty much the same, but there are some words translated from Hebrew into English that are different from the KJV and NKJV. Just one example - Dolphins in one, badgers in the other (Exodus). Seriously, two different animals. Yet, the verses are the same, and I have gained better understanding of what was going on way back when, and find a lot of it, quite pertinent to today’s life.
Just thought I’d toss that in.
