An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Congress has been in the business of wrecking the economy and then claiming they have the solution to fix the problems they created. Curses on both their houses.
Now the blame-game is coming from the Romney camp. In an interview with Candy Crowley, Romney adviser Carlos Gutierrez first attacked Romney for his remarks about “gifts” by Obama to buy votes. On this Romney is correct despite what some Republicans who are trying to position themselves for 2016 are saying. Then Gutierrez goes further off the rails. Like so many Establishment Republicans, he does not understand the mood of millions of conservatives who once formed the foundation of the Republican Party and gave it substantial victories in past elections, 2010 being the most recent:
“I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn’t belong. We are the party of prosperity, of growth, of tolerance. I mean these immigrants who come across and what they do wrong is they risk their lives, they come here and they work because they want to be part of the American Dream. That’s what the GOP is.”
People are really starting to PISS ME OFF!! This clown blames people like me. Another ‘adviser’ blames Chris Christie. Talking heads blame Limbaugh. Jindal says we have to make people like us? Give me a flippin’ break!
Ya wanna know whose fault it is that we’re stuck with that incompetent boob for four more years? There’s a long list! Where should I start?
How about with government run indoctrination centers! Yep, for the last 40 years or so, our so called public education system has been churning out virtual morons, incapable of rational, and critical thinking. They are instructed to ‘think’ what they are told, and never question the rationality.
Then, we have the media. Dear Lord in Heaven! What a freakin’ joke! Instead of actual news, we are spoon fed the pablum that they want us to hear, and ignore the truth. Once again, the inability to think critically comes into play. People don’t bother to investigate further, so they just stroll along, believing the BS they have been handed.
How about those voting vaginas? Now there’s a real bunch of geniuses! I guess if you think that you have the ‘right’ to slaughter your child, calling it ‘choice’ (although the choice was made before the conception), and think that you also have the right to spread ‘em anytime ya please, with contraception paid for by SOMEONE ELSE, then yeah… brilliant! /snark Criminy, these females are an embarrassment to all thinking women!
Shall we talk about the GOP? Yeah…there a real bunch of losers for ya! A handful of ‘rich fat cats’ have taken the platform that WINS, and turned it into a ‘big tent’. Stuff your big tent where the sun don’t shine! TRUTH doesn’t need a tent! Instead of reaching out to the base….folks like me, the TEA Party activists, the TRUE CONSERVATIVES….they placate the wishy washy middle of the road, can’t decide, fence sitters, and end up with splinters up their butts, and blame us? Naw…that ain’t gonna fly bub!
And Governor Jindal…with all due respect, I don’t give a flying $%#@ if people like us or not! Liking doesn’t mean DICK when you send the WRONG message! People seem to like Obama, for what reason, I have yet to figure out, but that doesn’t mean he’s the right person for the job! So, whether or not someone is ‘likable’ is irrelevant!
When it comes to Hispanics, they’ve been fed a line of BS as long as the U.S./Mexican border! The key word…ILLEGAL….seems to be left out quite a bit. Hey… we like immigrants just fine! We just prefer them to come in the front door, with permission, instead of breaking in the back door, expecting goodies at the expense of the tax payer, of all colors, creeds, and origins!
Then there’s that one GLARING issue no one seems to want to talk about….CHEATING! How many incidents of obvious fraud have been counted, yet not a word from the GOPers. If they had any sense, they’d demand a recount, nation wide! Voting machines changing votes. Illegals voting. Multiple votes…by the same person…and bragging about it? Yet….what do we get?
Yep! There are a whole lot of reasons we’ve been shafted once again. This is just the tip of the iceberg. So, here’s a clue for you establishment GOPers. Either you can start listening to US…as in WE, The People, or you can find another line of work because there won’t be a Grand Old Party anymore, and we’ll take it from here. There’s this thing called the U.S. Constitution that we are REAL fond of, and if that makes us extreme, ‘the far right’, or whatever other name you want to tack onto us, so be it! We ain’t going away, but YOU just might! Join US, or get left behind. Your choice!
I decided I wasn’t going to be glued to the idjit box all day (or snoop the interwebs), so we didn’t even turn on the news until a few minutes ago. After what little I’ve seen of the results, I’m not as optimistic as I was this morning. I am praying that by the time this is all over, the numbers will improve in the RIGHT direction.
After the last four years, I would have hoped there would have some serious waking up across the country. Apparently, I put too much faith in the American people. At least half of them.
Pray for our children! They will never know liberty.
But at this point, I do not believe that Romney should concede as yet.
….Faith and Politics
NO TRUE CHRISTIAN CAN EVER VOTE DEMOCRAT!
Just can’t make it any plainer than that!
I get the impression that there are many people who have forgotten what large responsibility voting really is! We have an obligation to use this wonderful privilege, and so many throw it away. Many tell themselves their vote doesn’t really count. Considering the widespread fraud, I can understand that viewpoint, but if enough HONEST people cast their vote, then it IS possible to overcome the fraud, and elect a reasonably decent candidate despite the cheating, lying and stealing of the opposition.
In 1961, the newly elected John F Kennedy made a statement in his inaugural address: “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” I was young at the time, but thought I vaguely understood his meaning. I’ve thought I understood it all these years, and it finally hit me… I really didn’t understand. But I think I do now. Perhaps it’s not exactly what he meant at the time, but it sure does seem to fit today’s voting population.
When you go to the poll to cast your vote, are you voting for the candidate who can give you all kinds of goodies? Or are you voting for a candidate that will open up doors for opportunities, for you, for your children, your grandchildren? Do you want a candidate who will give you pretty words, and promise you the moon, and take away any hope for a better tomorrow? Or, would you prefer a candidate whose actions speak volumes about the content of his character? One who doesn’t brag on his/her quiet moments, but whose heart has proven his or her worth.
When you go to vote on Tuesday, assuming you haven’t already voted like we have, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself before making such an important decision…one that will affect every man, woman, and child in this country.
1. Who would you trust with your family’s life savings? Would candidate A, or candidate B, be more trustworthy to manage your business that you spent years building up?
2. Who would you trust to be on your side in a fire fight? Who do you believe would have your back (watch your six) when push came to shove?
3. Who would remember the U.S. Constitution, follow the guidelines laid out by the Founders? Enforce the laws of the land, and allow citizens the freedoms to grow as individuals, and as a nation?
There have been threats of riots, death threats, and vulgarities towards the ‘right’….always coming from the ever tolerant ‘left’. This doesn’t make for a strong, united country, but will be dealt with should the need arise. The fear of losing ones food stamps seems to be a common theme. That would be the ‘what are you going to do for me’ crowd. Obviously, the future of their children mean nothing to them. The blatant selfishness has become so rampant in this country, it’s no wonder that many people have become so pessimistic, they believe their vote won’t count.
What it boils down to, this election really isn’t about us. No, we are just passing through. What this election is really about is our children, and their children, and their children. Will there be a UNITED States of America in 100 years? Or will we be just a footnote in a dusty history book? This truly IS the most important election of our lifetime!
Why are evangelicals like Billy Graham and Ralph Reed stumping for Mitt Romney? And why are roughly three-quarters of white evangelicals inclined to vote for him?
Because politics matters more to them than religion.
Until quite recently, many evangelicals saw Mormonism as a dangerous cult spreading false theology and dooming its followers to hell. In fact, only after Romney showed up for a meet and greet with Billy Graham in North Carolina earlier this month did the website of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association erase a reference to Mormonism as a “cult.”
Did Mormons all of a sudden change their theology? Did Graham change his definition of a “cult”? Of course not. It just became politically expedient for Graham to declassify Mormonism, given the fact that Romney, a Mormon, was the presidential nominee of his beloved GOP.
Ralph Reed, too, is forsaking his theology for his politics, mobilizing his Atlanta-based Faith and Freedom Coalition to place voter guides in Ohio churches in the run-up to election day.
Read the entire column here.
sigh… You have NO idea how much the so called Christians, and suppose ‘religious’ writers annoy the bejabbers outta me!
Is Mormonism a cult? I have no idea. I do know that they DO believe that Jesus came to save us from ourselves, and offer us redemption. The rest? Well, perhaps they don’t worship the same way I do, but then, neither do the Presbyterians or Catholics. Does that make them cults as well? Mormons don’t promote the death of those who don’t think the same way they do, unlike another so called religion the left seems to promote on a regular basis.
Perhaps those that are being criticized and insulted in the post made the effort to learn more about Mormonism, and learned more about the man himself, and see that he IS a man of faith. Just because his faith is different doesn’t mean he’s wrong for the job. Does anyone remember how many were all up in arms about John F. Kennedy being Catholic? Well, I do.
Does this so called ‘religious blogger’ for CNN support Barack Insane Obama? Well, that would mean he is NOT a Christian. No real Christian can support a candidate who promotes the murder of children, or anything that violates the Word of God. Professing the belief in Christ and voting for a candidate who has the blood of millions on his hands is the epitome of hypocrisy.
FYI dipwad (Stephen Prothero)…my FAITH is more important than politics! Which is WHY I refuse to vote for your messiah!
When it comes to a choice between an American hating, lying, cheating, baby killer and a Mormon? I’ll take that Mormon ANY DAY!
To put it in very simple terms… YOU CAN NOT BE A CHRISTIAN AND VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT! PERIOD!
WATCH THIS VIDEO! If you are undecided, which I find utterly baffling, or are planning on voting third party, or write in, or not planning to vote at all, because of ‘principles’, believing that voting for the ‘lesser of two evils’ is just as dangerous as voting for the socialist. If I hear “there is no difference between the two” one more time, I might just have to hurt someone! There is a HUGE difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Hussein Obama, and you’d know this if you had taken the time to educate yourself on both their stances.
Be grateful you actually have a choice, and a chance, to decide whether or not to continue on the path of destruction, or take a different road that, hopefully, will lead back to prosperity. There are too many people in this world who don’t have the freedoms we still have, even though they have dwindled in recent years. Too many men and women died to allow us this freedom. Thank God there were, and are, those who willing fight and die for your liberty. Are YOU willing to give all? Don’t spit in their faces!!

Mormonism doesn’t work for me. I just wanted to get that straight, right off the bat. I have serious doubts about the timeline of events proffered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I just can’t swallow the idea that the Son of Man rolled away the rock and then ascended into heaven, only to make a pit stop on the other side of the planet. It’s not that I doubt that Jesus could have dropped in on the loincloth-and-human-sacrifice set; but if He did, His lessons clearly didn’t take — until Hernán Cortés and his Spanish legions reinforced it at the end of a musket. I likewise find the details of golden plates and seer stones pretty dubious.
But here’s the really cool part: I don’t spend time thinking about LDS doctrine, nor do I have to. Mormons are welcome to believe whatever the heck they want; the last time I checked, that’s the American (not to mention Constitutional) way. And I would have guessed that the Democrats would move to the front of line to join me in dismissing attempts to criticize any candidate based on his religious beliefs. After all, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) shares the Mormon faith espoused by Governor Mitt Romney; and I have heard no howls of derision pouring forth from the left regarding Reid donning any “magic underwear,” promoting polygamy or otherwise planning to impose his faith on those of us who prefer the booze to contain actual alcohol.
Can’t you just imagine a ‘tell all’ book published this past September about Paul Ryan? I can see the New York Times giant print headline now….
“Scandal Rocks Romney Campaign”
“Ryan Soiled Diapers As Baby”
It would be the lead story on all the lame stream networks… Chris Matthews would have an orgasm… on air! We’d have 24/7 coverage from MSNBC and CNN! Lot’s of “breaking news” from the networks… “THIS JUST IN! ABC news has just learned that not only did VP candidate, Paul Ryan, soil his diapers when he was a baby, but so did Mitt Romney! Will this destroy the Romney’s chances of a win on November 6? All the details coming up on this evening’s news! STAY TUNED! We’ll bring you updates live as they come in!”
These are the same people who think a story about Lindsay Lohan, or The Situation (whoever the hell that is), are BIG news stories, but the REAL scandal of ‘what did he know, and when did he know it’ are not.
So, I have to ask myself, do these so called ‘news’ channels and broadcast news shows really believe they are NOT biased?
A book was released in September that describes Joe Biden as an “egomaniacal autocrat”, “determined to manage his staff through fear” as a Senator, and this is the first I’ve heard about it? Have YOU ever heard of “The Payoff”? Written by Jeff Connaughton, “a Biden Senate staffer turned lobbyist” published such a book ‘that Politico says “lacerates” the vice president.’
Gee, I don’t know about you, but to me, this would be news. Something that would interest the voters as they go to the polls to make one of the most important decisions of their lives….who will determine the future of our country! Will it be a man with the knowledge and know how to actually turn the economy around, aided by a brilliant young man, or will it be the same guy that has been dragging our nation through the mud, assisted by a raving loony tune….just ONE heartbeat away from the highest office in the nation!?
I will admit, I haven’t read the book…
….how could I when this is the first I’ve heard of it? I did, however, take advantage of the little feature Amazon offers… “LOOK INSIDE”.
Oh my! Well, considering the media is doing all it can to make sure that our country is taken down the path of destruction by stumping for Barack Hussein Obama and his side kick, I can understand why they wouldn’t want to make such a book very public, and are ignoring it, to the detriment of the voters. Granted, people like the Obama phone broad won’t be reading it, but who knows…maybe there are a few undecided (how that’s even possible, I can’t imagine) who would like more information before they make their decision. There are already plenty of books that the lame stream have ignored that would give most thinking people reasons for NOT voting for the D ticket, should we be surprised they are ignoring one more, right before the election?
An interesting timeline, and some very interesting questions, with a bit of speculation. We know Obama is a liar. That’s not a shocker. Anyone paying attention would know this, and SHOULD be outraged.
When I learned of the attack on our consulate, I KNEW it was an act of terror. Why didn’t the so called POTUS, with all his access to classified information, know? He had the information given to him within a VERY short period of time. I’m just a hausfrau in Podunk TN, yet I can figure it out within seconds, with nothing more than the information at hand, but the guy sitting in the White House can’t? Does no one see a major problem here? And yet, he and his minions continued the lies.
As for the ‘gun running’ issue? I don’t have a clue. Hopefully, someday, we’ll know the FULL truth. Today would be a good day!
We should be able to trust those who we sent to represent our interests. Unfortunately, we no longer can, especially with this current White House resident. I wouldn’t trust him with an ice cream cone, much less the lives of my family. Without trust, without truth, we no longer have a functional government.
Have you noticed that the word ‘patriot’ has been thrown out a lot, by both left and right, in recent years? It’s not a bad thing to be patriotic, but the problem arises when one side doesn’t really understand the word itself.
Patriot - pa·tri·ot [pey-tree-uht - ot] noun
1. a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.
2. a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.
I’m sure you can see our dilemma. When someone on the left shouts ‘PATRIOT’, you have to wonder if they totally misunderstand the meaning of the word.
Mr Obama’s little pamphlet has this problem as well. “The New Economic Patriotism”? Seriously? The introduction paragraph would be rather amusing if it wasn’t so blatantly full of lies.
It’s time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. Over the past 31 months, American businesses have created 5.2 million jobs. Independent economists project that our economy will create an additional 12 million jobs in the next four years. The President believes we must do even more to grow our economy and strengthen the middle class. The goal of his jobs plan is to strengthen middle-class security by making smart investments in education and training, growing small businesses, promoting technology and innovation, and reducing the deficit.
Disregarding the obvious line of complete caca de toro, it is quite apparent that Mr Obama has still learned nothing about how the economy works. Taxing the businesses that actually create jobs, is a sure fire job killer. If the business has to dish out more to the government, that means they’ll have less to expand and hire new people, and will more than likely lose employees, or just shut down altogether. Why would anyone want to run a business in this type of economic climate?
What Obama ‘plans’ is more of the same. Did he inherit a mess? Sure…the mess that the Democratic controlled Congress created. Basically, he inherited his own mess, and wants to create an even bigger mess. His plans to destroy America are working quite well, if that’s what you want for your children’s future. Personally, I care more about my kids, grandkids, and great grandkid, and would prefer to see this path to destruction diverted.
We don’t need more teachers, we need BETTER teachers, without the interference of the unions. We need to regain control of education at the local level, and get the government indoctrination centers shut down. We don’t need more ‘green jobs’. The only ‘green’ involved in Obama’s betting practices, has been OUR ‘green’ going bye bye, into the pockets of Mr Obama’s buddies, after such companies go toes up.
No, Mr Obama, you don’t have a true ‘patriotic’ plan. If you truly were a patriot, you’d have resigned quite a while ago, admitting you have NO IDEA what you are doing, and that your “well intentioned plans” are a complete and utter failure!
Obama’s “New Economic Patriotism”
President Obama has a new booklet—a glossy, 20-page spread called “The New Economic Patriotism: A Plan for Jobs and Middle-Class Security.” The title is completely Orwellian, since the plan—which is nothing new—would actually kill jobs, harming the middle class.
As expected, the “new patriotism” means paying more in taxes for those small business owners who create many of the nation’s jobs.
This isn’t the first time the President has invoked patriotism to describe economic plans.
When he was running for President, Obama condemned George W. Bush for adding $4 trillion to the national debt over eight years, calling it “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic.” Now—in less than four years—Obama’s Administration has already added almost $6 trillion to the debt. And he’s on track to add another $4 trillion over the next decade.
So the definition of what it actually means to be an economic patriot is still a bit confusing. But as for the President’s plan, it hasn’t been changed or updated. CNN’s Jessica Yellin reported that “there’s not anything significantly new in here. It’s just all compiled in a nice booklet now.”
The nice booklet starts off with the claim that President Obama has overseen the creation of 5 million jobs—which Heritage has debunked.
Trevor Loudon is from New Zealand, blogger extraordinaire, and apparently more informed about our current resident of the White House than 90% of Americans.
Educate yourself, share the information, make sure people know just how far ‘left’ this POTUS really is. He may have been born in Hawaii, but he is no American!
