An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 9 November 2012
For reasons totally beyond my comprehension, I got this bright idea that, as S.P. use to say “I can do it my own self”. Yeah…that was brilliant. Ya see, we had to replace the inside pad of our Sleep Comfort bed cuz it did what it wasn’t suppose to do….sag where our bods typically rested. We also had to replace the Cool Fit Foam thingy cuz, well, it was just too narrow. We have a California King, and I swear that thing was made for a queen. The pad was great…until I’d roll over and fall off the bed cuz of the major slant it created.
If you’ve ever had a Sleep Comfort, you know they are great beds…well worth the price! But if you’ve ever had one, you know you have to put that puppy together and it’s called WORK! Well, almost 6 years ago, I was already living down here, and the Mr was still up in Wisconsin dealing with selling the house and such, so I was on my own. I put that sucker together…. NO problem! The WHOLE thing. With this pad, all I had to do was remove the sheets, unzip the pillow top, remove the old pad, replace it with the new, and replace the sheets. Sounds simple enough, right? Pfft! WRONG! 6 years ago, I didn’t have a pacemaker, a fake knee, and a splintering spine, not to mention the fact that the older you get the more that fibromyalgia pain nonsense gets a whole lot worse. Add in the typical falling apart old age crap, and you’ve got one really stupid idea!
To put it rather bluntly, even my eyelashes and toenails ache! Trying to find a comfortable position to sleep was an exercise in futility! If I thought I was aching yesterday, that ain’t NUTHIN’ compared to the agony I’m feeling today. Ya might say I’m in a fairly pissy mood!
If that wasn’t bad enough, starting at 6am, Rowdy decided it was time for me to get up! Yeah…right! For an hour and a half, I attempted to push him away, yelled at him, and if I had been able to turn over and move my arms, would have sent him flying. In all probability, I’ll be hunting down some serious pain killers, and go unconscious for a long LONG time. Well, at least until I can at least scratch an itch without groaning in agony! Problem is, I gotta figure out how to roll the other pad up and send it back in that itty bitty box! ………………. TOMORROW!
An Open Letter to Ms. Ann Coulter aka Blondie
from The Bunker
I hope this letter finds you well. I am sure your schedule is packed full of guest shots on Fox and Friends and Hannity.
Too bad about the election you lost. I guess you have some explaining to do, or should I say someone to blame. Let me make it easy for you and Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck and Levin. It was me Blondie, you can blame me.
Oh, I voted for your guy, Mr. Flip – flopper. But as my wife told the poll worker when she was offered an “I Voted” sticker, she said, “No thanks, I am not proud of this vote.”
We are Ron Paul supporters. You know; the real Liberty movement. Even though my wife and I voted for “Your” guy, there were millions and millions and millions of our friends in the movement who refused to.
Let me tell you why you lost. Remember that big show of a convention you republicans put on? Do you remember how you treated the legal Ron Paul delegates to your fancy party? Remember how you denigrated and made fun of our representatives. But that wasn’t enough was it? Even after not allowing Ron Paul to speak you had to try and humiliate him one last time. You and your party hacks sent the TSA goons, your Brown shirts to harass Ron and his wife and grandkids at the airport while they sat in their private plane. One of your Storm Troopers actually wanted to “Feel Up” Mrs. Paul saying she was security risk.
I don’t really care what you think of our movement Blondie. I do know this; Ron Paul probably spoke to at least 3 million good people and college age voters all over the country during the campaign. Huh, isn’t that approximately how many votes you came up short?
Your good looks and sexy outfits don’t impress me much. You see, I’m old. Half of me hurt’s all the time and the other half don’t work. But I don’t care. I and the millions of others in the Liberty Movement see through your façade. We care about individual Freedom, Liberty and the Constitution. Everything you and your cohorts profess to care about but can never actually stand up for in the halls of power.
So, Blondie there you have it. We have been here the whole time and we aren’t going away. In fact, our movement is growing. We don’t need you, good-bye, good riddance, sayonara, adios, hasta la vista baby!
If you actually happen to read this letter and it offends your elitist sensibilities and you would like to find me, great! I live in Cleveland Wisconsin; just ask around when you get here. Everybody knows me. I live in the Bunker with the big “Don’t Tread on Me” flag flying proudly beneath the Stars and Stripes.
If ‘public opinion’ has not changed on ObamaCare, explain to me why so many morons voted for it? And I by, I mean by voting for Obama, and giving the Dims even MORE seats in the Senate, leaving the doddering tool still in charge? Seems to me, if most people are opposed to some bureaucrat having their lives in their hands, common sense would see us with a DIFFERENT president, and FEWER Dim senators. They can blame the Republicans for the obstructionism all they want, but those who pay attention are well aware of just WHO the obstructionist really are!
And all you folks in the ‘middle class’ who voted for more of the same? You can kiss that new car, or those home improvements you’ve been wanting buh-bye! You’re going to be taxed into poverty, and are just too stupid to know it.
Those who are classified as living at, or below, the poverty level? Obama ain’t Santa Claus, and you ain’t getting all those goodies you are counting on. Likely, you’ll be even farther into the lower rung. For those folks who have been sucking off the public teat (aka the producers aka the taxpayers) ya might as well face the fact that there is going to be even LESS “Obama money” for you to steal from the working class. And don’t plan on getting better health care! There will be longer waits, fewer options, and hey… if you’re really sick, just go ahead and choose your plot now. Of course, there is always ‘potter’s field’, so you probably shouldn’t worry about that either.
NO, Obama does NOT care about you! All you are to him is a means to his end…worker drones in his anthill! So, all you Obama voters? You better pray that those bringing the lawsuits against that fiasco called ObamaCare are successful! Then again, some people are too stupid to live, so……… Welcome to the U.S.S.A.!
What Does the Election Mean for Obamacare?
What’s next for Obamacare now?
The bad news is that many of the health care law’s serious effects were delayed until after the election. Ten of its 18 new tax hikes have yet to kick in. And there is still so much about the law that we don’t even know.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D–CA) was absolutely right when she famously remarked in 2010 that “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Thus far, we have seen revelations of increasing costs, higher taxes, and a flood of directives from Washington bureaucrats—yet there are countless major features of the law that have not been decided.
