An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 19 May 2012
There are few people who know what is going on in our (my family’s) real world right now, and at the moment, I’m going to keep it that way. Being perfectly honest, under the current circumstances, I don’t give a flying flip what is going on in politics. I’m not reading other blogs like I usually do throughout the week, finding interesting, and/or informative posts to link. I hope y’all will forgive me for not keeping up with things, but if you knew the circumstances, odds are, you’d ask…”Why the hell are you posting at all?” Well, sometimes, it keeps my mind busy, and at other times, I’m not even making much sense to myself.
Yes, this is a MAJOR family crisis, and as a family, we WILL stand together through this! Please bear with me, and pray that all will turn out well. I am leaving it in God’s Hands because He is the One Who is in control.
Although some NATO Summit protesters said there was nothing more incriminating than home brewing equipment in the Bridgeport apartment where they were staying, three of them have now been charged with possessing explosives to commit terrorist acts.
I guess it’s no secret I don’t much care for folks who make their ‘living’ going around the world, protesting whatever comes down the pike, but seriously? Now, I suppose if these folks used bottles for their home brewed beer, someone might be able to misconstrue the purpose, but then again…
Ok, here’s your very basic beer brewing set up, bare bones type stuff. They do get more elaborate, and expensive, but this is an example.
If all they were doing was making home brewed beer, then police over reacted. IF, on the other hand, as anarchists types are wont to do, they were preparing to create chaos, cause mayhem, and destroy anything in their path, then throw ‘em under the jail. I’m pretty fed up with those who have NO respect for other peoples property. If they made an effort to earn anything on their own, they just MIGHT understand.
There was also accusations of mistreatment, and ‘violation of civil rights’ by the police. Called me shocked! There always seem to be such accusations coming from the left, the anarchists, and generally anyone who has an issue about anything. Isn’t it odd that they never mind violating someone else’s REAL rights, but when it comes to themselves, EVERYTHING is a “right”, and they are always being violated. Did the guy actually WALK all the way from Philadelphia to Chicago just to stand around with some stupid sign, and shout vulgarities? I have my doubts about that walking business.
