An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 24 April 2012
Well, apparently Twitter has either become a bunch of feckless weasels, or they have been taken over by the Obama regime. Same thing. Suspending Americans for Limited Government‘s account isn’t exactly supporting the 1st Amendment, is it. And why was their account yanked? This (pointing down to video) is why. The account has been restored, but the question still remains…. why?
Quite a powerful video, wouldn’t ya say?
Every once in a while, we all need a serious reminder just how peaceful that ‘religion of peace’ really is, since the media fails to keep the general public informed.
Today is the 24th of April, and these are the examples of said ‘peaceful religion’ for just the 24 days of April, 2012:
A racially charged beating of a white Alabama man by a throng of African-Americans is not being investigated as a hate crime, despite one witness’ claim that she heard an assailant exclaim: “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
Matthew Owens, of Mobile, Ala., was assaulted with baseball bats, paint cans and other weapons at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday after telling a group of children to stop playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive, according to Ashley Rains, public information officer for the Mobile Police Department.
After the children left the area, a group of adults armed with weapons returned and confronted Owens, 40, in his front yard, where he was assaulted. Owens’ sister, Ashley Parker, told WKRG she witnessed the attack and that there were as many as 20 assailants. Parker said she overheard one of them say, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
But…it’s not a ‘hate crime’. Does this look like ‘justice’ of any kind?
Asked if the incident was being investigated as a hate crime, Rains replied: “No, it’s not. It’s being investigated as an assault.” Eugene A. Seidel, first assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama, declined to comment on the case when reached by FoxNews.com.
And who does Seidel work for? Why….that paragon of justice, Eric Holder. Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton demanding justice for Matthew Owens? Oh, that’s right….Mr Owens is the wrong color! It was ‘justified’ that those 40 grown… well, I can’t say men, because they aren’t…how about animals? Those 40 grown animals attack an unarmed man, and call it justice for a kid who was killed in a different state, shot by someone else, who has NOT been convicted by a court of law.
Owens has not been a model citizen, but did he deserve this kind of treatment? Does anyone???
Congratulations to the race baiters. It appears your intent to start a race war has seen some success. How many have been attacked in the name of Trayvon Martin? When will you step forward and STOP this travesty? You have blood on your hands!
In a landmark decision, the Israeli branch of Conservative Judaism announced that its rabbinical school will begin to accept gay and lesbian candidates for ordination.
Now, it’s not up to me to judge anyone’s sexuality. That’s not my job. The job actually given to me, and others like me, is to spread the truth. So, let me ask… what are the gay and lesbian rabbis going to do when they come to the ‘abomination‘? Will they skip over it? Gloss it up to mean something different? What? How can a Jewish Rabbi teach the Torah, the Five Books of Moses….THE LAW, in other words, when they practice something that is expressly FORBIDDEN by that law?
Many churches in the U.S. have fallen down the rabbit hole of political correctness, forgetting completely what the Bible teaches. Liberals have taken over many churches to the point they are no longer recognizable as churches. They are social justice clubs, pushing an agenda. The big problem is that agenda is also the one pushed by Satan. So, are U.S. churches now tools of Satan?
Having such an issue on the ‘docket‘ of any denomination should never even be an issue. Yet, it is. Evidently, a large number of those 70% who claim to be Christian, aren’t.
To read that the CONSERVATIVE branch of Judaism is falling down that same rabbit hole is more than a little distressing. Have they not read Judges recently? How many times will God come to their rescue after turning their backs on Him? The same question could be asked of everyone….even in the U.S.
It started out as a reasonably pleasant morning. A bit chilly for my tastes, and had to turn the heater up, but other than that….no problem. Well, I could have used another hour of sleep. After yesterday…a humdinger of a Monday, the extra hour might have improved my frame of mind. It really is the pits when you stick yourself in the eye with mascara, then dump a full cup of Dr Pepper all over the place at the ladies meeting. sigh…
I went to get my last cup of coffee, and lo and behold…………….
Will it never end? Will our lives be consistently plagued by them? Will I ever catch that evil fowl, and snatch those tail feathers off his hind end?
Then, I looked up, and TA DA! They evidently didn’t believe he was serious about them vacating the premises. EVIL! Just plain EVIL!
So, it was time to do the ‘infamous ol’ broad peacock dance’….which entails me hobbling behind them, doing my best to herd them towards home. Not the easiet thing to do, lemme tell ya! We went around the house. We went across the yard. We danced through the field, several times, when finally, I do believe the male, at least, got the message. There would be no eating of recently potted flowers for them! At least, not today….so far. He waddled himself back down the hill towards home.
The female, on the other hand, not the brightest of God’s creatures, thought it might be fun to play hide and seek around a tree. First, we went one way, then we went the other way..round and round. Stupid bird! Eventually, I suppose she decided she wasn’t going to win this game, and headed off after her mate. Wise decision!
Have I mentioned recently…..I HATE THOSE FREAKIN’ BIRDS? Well, if not….
I HATE THOSE FREAKIN’ BIRDS!
Of all the many complaints about airport security and the TSA, one of the most common is that they make little distinction between plausible security threats and passengers unlikely to be doing anything wrong.
And a recent incident in Wichita, Kansas has reinforced that argument, as a four-year-old girl was apparently subjected to a humiliating ordeal after she hugged her grandmother while she was waiting in line.
The girl was accused of having a gun and declared a ‘high security threat’, while agents threatened to shut down the whole airport if she could not be calmed down.
When asked about the overbearing treatment the girl received, a TSA spokesman did not apologise and insisted that correct procedures had been followed.
Haven’t we let this utter………………..BULLSHIT to go on long enough? This has gone far beyond bad jokes. Our government is ALLOWING one of ITS agencies to terrorize old women, children, the infirm, and people just trying to get from point A to point B with as little hassle as possible.
It wasn’t bad enough that airlines no longer give actual service to their customers, who PAY for the privilege of having rude ticket agents abuse them, be crammed into tiny seats with no leg room like cattle, and have their property stolen. No…that wasn’t enough. Now we are subjected to humiliation, a total violation of our 4th Amendment rights, and small children are traumatized.
Instead of watching for those who WOULD do harm, because their so called ‘religion’ tells them to, this government agency runs roughshod over innocent American citizens!
I would like to know when Congress is going to put a stop to this. NOW would be a real good time. It should NEVER have gone this far! We have been stripped of our liberties, one at a time, slowly over the years, and no one seems to notice. The frog was put into the cold water. Now, apparently, that’s just not fast enough for OUR employees. No..they’ve turned the burner up, and the water is on the verge of boiling. It’s time for us frogs to jump!
Screw the politically correct. Shove that multiculturalism where the sun don’t shine, and take your diversity and choke on it! I don’t give a flying flip if I offend anyone or not! Man didn’t give me the right to be ‘secure in my person‘, God did. It’s man, in the form of far over reaching government, who has violated nearly every aspect of ‘Divine Law‘.
When will see passengers, or just the general public, lined up against the wall and shot, because they object to the invasion of their person.
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes … but when a long train of abuses and usurpations … evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.” – Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence
Do You Know What the Constitution Really Means?
With a handful of words, the Founders set forth a simple principle that protects a central liberty enjoyed by all in this Republic — the freedom of speech, as recognized in the First Amendment. Yet after more than 200 years of history, liberals in Congress — including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — aim to set that freedom on its head so they can further their efforts to silence their political opponents.
The proposal, which is known as the “People’s Rights Amendment,” would amend the Constitution and hold that constitutional rights are only for “natural persons,” meaning that corporations and legal entities would no longer enjoy the freedoms the Constitution guarantees. That would apply not just to companies like General Electric, but also to newspapers, churches, nonprofits, businesses, labor unions and book publishers alike. Individuals acting collectively — whatever their purpose — would wave the freedom of speech goodbye.
