An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

A rose by any other name, argues Juliet, would smell as sweet. On the other hand, a pile of garbage…rotting in the sun, would still stink to high heaven. What they’re calling immigration reform is no rose!
The majority of our forefathers were immigrants, willing or unwilling. Most of the willing came to make a better lives for themselves and their families. The majority worked hard for a living, many became quite successful, many just made it day to day, but they all had one thing in common…they did not come to suck off the government teat!
I have covered this topic more than enough times, shared the story of my adoptive parents, some of my biological history, and no where was there an illegal in the bunch! I have no problem with people wanting to come to the U.S. who have something to contribute, legally. I have a HUGE problem with people, sneaking over the border, overstaying their visas, and taking what they did not earn from other who have lived the ‘American Dream’. They are NOT entitled to a damn thing. You want to come here, come through the front door, and you’ll be welcomed with open arms. Learn the language, assimilate to OUR society, and all will be well. Sneak in, demand ‘rights’, force language changes on signs, government documents, etc., and you will be shunned in all possible manners by those who came with their eyes open, not their hands out!
The so called POTUS gave time to illegals, protesting outside the White House, but shuns veterans who fought so he could steal elections, and force socialism down our throats. The priorities of this administration are way more than bassackwards! They are downright criminal! Why didn’t he have the buses lined up to return them to the border? He had NO problem locking out veterans who wanted to see THEIR memorials! A hypocrite, a liar, a….. words fail me. Spawn of Satan is the best I can do right now.
Separating families? No, don’t separate them. Ship the kids with the parents, since they were born here illegally because of the parents criminal activity! I’m not one who is big on the ‘sins of the fathers’, but in this case, I’ll make an exception.
Yes, I’m more than just a little angry. We should ALL be angry! This administration, and a few previous, has allowed the nation to be overrun by criminals from nations all around the world, and turns a blind eye to the injustice that is heaped upon law abiding citizens. Why? Power. Plain and simple. It’s all about the power. The problem is, the power does NOT belong to those in D.C. The power is OURS! Are we going to just hand it over, as we have been doing for the last 40 years? It’s past time to stand up!
Beware of Happy Talk on Immigration
Ken McIntyre – The Foundry
Is immigration reform coming back from the dead?
Over Thanksgiving, both President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) have indicated that the issue —which has meant amnesty, by any other name—is alive on Capitol Hill.
Obama said last week that proponents of amnesty should be “thankful” for Boehner’s stated support for immigration reform and prompted laughter by comparing the complicated issue to a turkey that could be sliced up.
“It’s Thanksgiving. We can carve this bird into multiple pieces,” Obama quipped.
But the metaphor doesn’t really work.
I don’t know about you, but I’m totally fed up with Obamadontcare, Obama, the Obama administration, the feckless Democrats, and the drooling lapdogs in the media! Does anyone really know who wrote that piece of crap they shoved down our throats? Whose idea was it really? Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag!
His name is Robert Creamer, a convicted felon, husband to socialist Dem representative, Jan Schakowsky, follower of Saul Alinsky, and apparently, an avowed Marxist. THIS is what the administration is shoving down the throats of American citizens without their consent! But hey, who cares, as long as the communists get their way, right?
Canceling insurance plans we liked, making folks buy policies they don’t want, and can’t afford, taking away the doctors we’ve dealt with for years….all part of the plan to create new Dem voters, by way of illegals, and ignoring those who are truly in need. Way to go Obama! You’ve been officially the WORST president in this nation’s history for a while now, and it ain’t got diddly to do with the color of your skin. It’s the LACK of character, your policies, and your arrogance that has pushed you to the #1 spot! Jimmy Carter thanks you!
Obamacare Undermines American Values
Chris Jacobs – The Foundry
We wrote earlier this week about the ways Obamacare discourages marriage and work. These aren’t the only traditional values it undermines.
Obamacare goes against two values that should be no-brainers: prioritizing American citizens over non-citizens, and prioritizing help for the disabled over assistance for able-bodied adults.
Prioritizing Non-Citizens Over American Citizens
Obamacare includes special provisions that allow many legal, non-citizen residents to qualify for federally subsidized insurance and, in so doing, offers these non-citizens more and better coverage options than American citizens.
The law as implemented creates two inequities that put American citizens at a disadvantage compared with non-citizens.
Isn’t it odd that the media has been ignoring a very serious problem for years while a publication, that many don’t consider ‘legitimate’ has been sounding the alarm? The author has even written a book documenting the increase in violence that the media ignores. When they do report it, they fail to mention that the majority of the victims were white, and all the terrorists…yes…TERRORISTS…were black. Why do you suppose that is?
Apparently, those so called professional journalists decided not to ever mention the race of the attackers, or their victims. Check out their ‘code of ethics‘ if you want a good laugh! Truth? TRUTH? We don’t need no stinkin’ truth! I guess these faux journalists have forgotten the Five W’s. Oh, and let’s not for the H.
Honestly, when I saw these crimes mentions on the news yesterday, my first thought…it’s about time! My second thought…what took them so long??? These incidents have been increasing for the last 5 years, and no one noticed a pattern? It’s not just the “knockout game”, there’s vandalism and theft as well.
Supposedly, if you mention the race of the perpetrators, you are a racist. Really? I don’t see them having a problem when someone is white, so why the double standard? I can hazard a guess or two, but I’ll let you make up your own mind.
A lot of people would like to say this isn’t a race issue. A lot of people would be wrong. This IS a race issue. Some people are speculating that a race war is coming. I’d say a race war has been going on for a while, however not all are involved, black or white, or Hispanic, or Asian. There are people who actually make a living promoting racial hatred, on both sides. There are whites who believe themselves superior to all others. Most of them are about as ignorant as they come.
Then, there are those black ‘leaders’, calling themselves ‘Reverend’, who insist that the white man owes them, and do their best to extort money, and promote tensions. Now that they’ve succeeded in starting this battle, they are silent. Do they (Jackson and Sharpton) approve of these terrorist activities? They must. Does the POTUS encourage such attacks on the innocent? Yes, by his silence.
Many have died, some have been seriously injured.
No Sean, this is NOT new. They are not men. Men don’t behave in such a manner. This has just been ignored.
1. a person, usually a member of a group, who uses or advocates terrorism.
2. a person who terrorizes or frightens others.
3. (formerly) a member of a political group in Russia aiming at the demoralization of the government by terror.
4. an agent or partisan of the revolutionary tribunal during the Reign of Terror in France.
More than one million people have signed a petition demanding justice after three of six men accused of brutally raping a Kenyan teenager before dumping her in a ditch were ordered only to cut grass in punishment before being set free.
The vicious attack on the 16-year-old, known only by the psudonym Liz, and the lack of action against those responsible has sparked outrage in the country.
Liz was reportedly attacked, beaten and then raped by six men as she returned from her grandfather’s funeral in western Kenya in June before the gang dumped her, bleeding and unconscious, in a deep sewage ditch.
She is now wheelchair-bound with a broken back, caused either by the beating or by being thrown into the ditch, and also suffered serious internal injuries from the rape.
Now, let’s see…I wonder if those six savages were of the muzzie persuasion? Being told by their imams that it is just okie dokie to rape, apparently, some of the more ignorant, of which there are way too many, think it’s okie dokie. Gosh! However did they come to that conclusion? Being told it’s ok by savages means it’s ok.
Rape is a major problem in Kenya, and is often not taken seriously by the police.
One government study in 2009 found that as many as a fifth of women and girls were victims of sexual violence, although other later studies have put the rate even higher.
Since the police don’t take this brutality seriously, perhaps someone should share, physically, just how brutal this action is by such scum. Let them experience the terror, the pain, the brutality! Perhaps THEN, they would take it seriously!
Is this really becoming a police state? Are the incidents sited in this column exceptions, or are they becoming the rule? I’m not the paranoid sort. Never have been, but I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever see my country again.

Who Will Protect You from the Police?
The Rise of Government-Sanctioned Home Invasions
By John W. Whitehead
“Democracy means that if the doorbell rings in the early hours, it is likely to be the milkman.”
It’s 3 a.m. You’ve been asleep for hours when suddenly you hear a loud “Crash! Bang! Boom!” Based on the yelling, shouting and mayhem, it sounds as if someone—or several someones—are breaking through your front door. With your heart racing and your stomach churning, all you can think about is keeping your family safe from the intruders who have invaded your home. You have mere seconds before the intruders make their way to your bedroom. Desperate to protect your loved ones, you scramble to lay hold of something—anything—that you might use in self-defense. It might be a flashlight, your son’s baseball bat, or that still unloaded gun you thought you’d never need. In a matter of seconds, the intruders are at your bedroom door. You brace for the confrontation, a shaky grip on your weapon. In the moments before you go down for the count, shot multiple times by the strangers who have invaded your home, you get a good look at your accosters. It’s the police.
Before I go any further, let me start by saying this: the problem is not that all police are bad. The problem, as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, is that increasing numbers of police officers are badly trained, illiterate when it comes to the Constitution, especially the Fourth Amendment, and, in some cases, willfully ignorant about the fact that they are supposed to be peacekeepers working for us, the taxpayer.
Are ya pissed off yet??? No? Then what does it take? Blocking veterans, shafting heroes’ families, destroying private businesses, spitting in the face of the American people…just how much more are you willing to put up with from the criminals in D.C.??? When that POS declares martial law???

Whether you’re curious or not, there are several reasons I haven’t been posting much, even though there is a great deal to post about these days. The personal reasons, I’ll keep to myself for the moment. The political? You really don’t want to read a post laced with ‘colorful metaphors’ as Captain Kirk called them. My anger increases with every revolting action of this administration and the phallic adoring Democrats. The most recent I’ve seen? Shutting down Amber alerts! How many children will be lost due to Obama’s arrogance!?!
Right now, I’m going to have to concentrate on personal issues. Barack Hussein Obama, and every single Democrat POS can burn in hell worshiping their evil master.
HAD To Copy & Paste!
What planet do you live on?
Last week, word got out that your children had broken into a home in Stephentown and threw a party. More than 300 of them partied and drunkenly smashed windows, urinated on the floors, stood on tables, punched holes in the ceiling and stole a statue that was part of a memorial for the owner’s stillborn grandson. Oh, it gets better. Before, during and after the party, they tweeted about it and posted pictures of themselves engaged in this behavior.
Way to go.
The house is owned by former NFL player Brian Holloway. It is his second residence, paid for in part by his Super Bowl bonus. He lives in Florida and the Stephentown house is on the market. He watched this unfold online while at his home in Florida. Instead of demanding the arrest of your kids, he instead created a website, www.helpmesave300.com where he reposted their photos, identified the people involved, and called for ways to reach out to young people and show them that there are better ways to spend their time than drinking, drugs and vandalism.
He is a better person than I would have been in that position. It takes class and compassion to see beyond the urine stained carpets, broken windows, damaged walls and blatant disrespect to reach out to your kids. He even offered to welcome these derelicts back to his house for a picnic, where they would work together to make repairs and clean up the mess they left behind. I don’t know that the rest of us would have been able to react the same way.
And one kid showed up. One, out of the 300 teens who were there.
Instead of dragging your kids back to apologize and clean up the mess, you lashed out at Brian Holloway, threatened to firebomb his house, and are now planning to sue him. For what? For identifying your kids online. Well guess what? Your little Johnny did that himself the minute he tweeted that iPhone photo standing on the dining room table, holding a red solo cup filled with beer.
Look, I don’t blame you for what your kids did. Heck, I don’t even really blame them. Teens will be teens, and they do stupid things sometimes. We’ve all been there. It’s not fair to judge parents on the mistakes their kids make. It is how you handle that behavior afterwards that reflects on you as a parent.
Instead of sitting little Johnny down and reminding him that what he did is not acceptable and then dragging him by the collar to apologize to Mr. Holloway, you chose instead to harass and threaten the victim. Let’s not forget here, your child victimized this man by destroying his home. How dare you respond with anything other than regret, embarrassment, and a sincere apology instead of righteous indignation, threats of violence and lawsuits.
Parents like you are responsible for an entire generation that expects the world handed to them, because you have given it to them all along. Instead of teaching your kids to work hard and earn things, you give a trophy to every kid in youth sports and then hand them an iPhone in middle school. You are the parents screaming through the fence at the Little League umpire instead of teaching good sportsmanship. You are the ones criticizing the teacher instead of realizing they just want to help your child learn.
Can you please just step back and look at what you are doing to your kids? This is the generation that will grow up to lead our country and make decisions regarding our lives. I hope none of them are YOUR children.
I’m guessing Kelly is one of the hosts of the show?
NOTE: The link, which was named, but wasn’t actually linked to the site, I added. Just trying to help Kelly out here.
Personal comment: I can’t imagine a parent being so blatantly irresponsible, but then, I guess I’m of a different generation. You know, the generation that believes in personal responsibility! I wonder how many of those parents are registered Democrats?
It’s getting harder and harder to post anything. Why? Because of people like that professor in Kansas.
A professor in the University of Kansas journalism department has tweeted that he would prefer to see the sons and daughters of National Rifle Association officials the targets the next time a crazed gunman attacks innocent people.
It was in response to the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday that David Guth posted on his Twitter account: “The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God d— you.”
This is why you send your kids to college? What kind of person would wish death to children…of anyone? A liberal!
And then there’s this:
Liberals work hard to sow discord between black and white Americans, encourage divisiveness and discord at every turn, and regularly attribute run-of-the-mill political disagreements to racism. People like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Toure, Melissa Harris-Perry, Michael Eric Dyson, Tavis Smiley, and Ben Jealous make a living convincing black Americans that whites hate them and it’s time they were called out on all of the lives they destroy in the process.
Sowing the seeds of hatred! Years of work to dissolve the divide between races, and these jackwagons come along and tear down all the work that’s been done by so many. Congratulations. I hope you are proud of yourselves. “All men are created equal.” What you do with the opportunities available is up to the individual.
Then there is more insanity coming out of Chicago, which, by the way, has passed the largest city in the country in the most murders category, and has now been crowned the murder capital of the country!
A 3-year-old boy who was among 13 people wounded in a late-night attack on a southwest Chicago park was alert when he arrived at the hospital and was apparently doing well, his family and friends said early Friday.
The attack late Thursday in the city’s Back of the Yards neighborhood left three victims, including the boy, in critical condition. The others were reportedly in serious or fair condition.
If you need proof of the insanity of liberals, just check out a California dimwit communications chair’s comments!
Tell me there isn’t something seriously WRONG with these people. Evil is a word that comes to mind!
And still, the evil is evident in the actions of vandals!
Not being Catholic, I don’t understand the need for such statues, but for some spawn of Satan to destroy symbols of faith speaks volumes about what has become of our society.
These are just a few examples of what has brought me to this point. These are not isolated incidents. This has become the norm is today’s U.S. of A. I’m not sure if I even want to continue this blog. I am trying very hard not to hate. I try to pray for those who have brought us to this new low. I do know, I will never give up my ‘fight’, whether it is on this site, or through other venues.
I constantly ask myself how we ever let it go so far, but sadly, I know the answer. WE have turned away from our Creator, and replaced him with false idols….”free stuff’, video games, talent shows, fake reality TV, obnoxious children in tiaras, etc.
Government is NOT going to ‘take care of us’. It’s beyond sad that so many consider such an entity as their savior.
5 Ways Obama Has Trampled the Constitution
Elizabeth Slattery & Rich Tucker – The Foundry
Today, the Constitution turns 226 years old. Let’s not forget it states that the President “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
The Obama Administration has done the opposite, turning the law on its head and ignoring constitutional limitations on its power.
Here are five of the Administration’s largest violations:
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires that businesses employing 50 or more full-time employees must provide health insurance or pay a fine per uncovered employee. The law schedules this mandate to begin in January 2014. Yet the Administration has already announced that it will put this requirement on hold.
Meanwhile, Congress explicitly considered and rejected proposed amendments to Obamacare that would have created a specific allowance for a congressional health insurance subsidy in the exchanges, and indeed, such an exemption is illegal. But the Administration told Members of Congress and their staffers that it would give them a generous taxpayer-funded subsidy just the same.
Obamacare won’t work as written, and the Administration is just seizing power unilaterally to rewrite it.
Story. I am watching the news, and honestly, I detest the speculation. Give me facts!
This is getting repetitive! What’s worse is that there still quite a few in Congress that don’t believe they have the power to defund this fiasco! Have the reps in the House even read the Constitution? Do they know what’s in it?
Article I, Section 9, Clause 7 – No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.
It’s really quite simple. When the House dickers over the appropriations bills, they conveniently leave out any funding for Obamacare! Voila! Problem solved!
To be blunt, this is a criminal enterprise that MUST be stopped in its tracks! Yes, we have issues, of Obama’s making…as usual…with Syria; no one has been brought to justice for the murder of four Americans in Benghazi; the IRS has targeted too many groups to name, mostly of the RIGHT leaning persuasion; the feds are spying on the citizens, rather like the Nazis and Soviets, and then we have this disastrous piece of crap they have the audacity to call ‘affordable’ and ‘health care’? Contrary to what those inside the Beltway want to believe, we are NOT a nation of idiots! But then again, perhaps we are, since we keep sending the same tired old names to supposedly represent us, and few actually DO!
10 Ways Obamacare Isn’t Working
Chris Jacobs – The Foundry
Obamacare is an unworkable law.
It’s obvious because the Administration keeps trying to “fix” it—to no avail. It has delayed parts of the law, ignored others, and carved out exemptions for its political allies.
1. WAIVERS: The Administration established a legally questionable program of temporary waivers when firms announced they were considering dropping coverage rather than comply with the law’s costly requirements. Even though more than half of the recipients of these waivers were members of union plans, many union leaders are still not satisfied—they want another waiver, to receive taxpayer-funded subsidies for their employer-provided coverage.
2. ILLEGAL TAXPAYER SUBSIDIES FOR CONGRESS: Last month, following heavy lobbying from leaders in both parties—and an intervention from President Obama himself—the Administration issued a rule regarding coverage for Members of Congress and their staffs, who will retain their taxpayer-funded insurance subsidies in the exchanges. Unfortunately, as previous research has documented, the Administration had no legal basis on which to make this ruling.
A 1-year-old boy has died after he was shot in the head Sunday evening in Brooklyn.
MyFoxNY.com reports the boy, identified as Antiq Hennis, was in a stroller crossing Livonia Avenue with his parents in the Brownsville section of the borough when shots were fired shortly before 7:30 p.m. Antiq was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A witness told the New York Post that “three to four shots” were fired. The paper reported that police were looking into the possibility that the boy’s father, Anthony Hennis, was the intended target of the gunfire. A police source told the Post that the elder Hennis had a record of more than 20 arrests in New York and Pennsylvania, for offenses including narcotics, weapons possession, assault, and car theft and driving violations.
First, I wonder, with so many arrests, how this father was still on the streets at all. He’s gotten his life together? Good. But that still doesn’t explain why he wasn’t behind bars. Second, I don’t care what he had done in the past, there is NO reason to fire any shots at ANYONE, especially when there are children around. The thug culture has no regard for life, and IT must be eradicated!
