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.
You can read the entire text of the ‘deal’ on Joel Roseburg’s blog. Pastor Saeed was never even mentioned in the ‘negotiations’. Why? Because American lives mean nothing to this administration. They proved that in Benghazi, when Americans were begging for help, and were denied. The doctor who provided the information that got bin Laden is languishing in a Pakistani prison on trumped up charges, and this administration does nothing. So, is it any wonder that this administration sells out our ONLY ally in the Middle East to a terrorist regime?
They really do believe we’re that stupid!
1. Max Baucus
“If you like what you have you can keep it.”
2. Harry Reid
“Those fortunate enough to have health insurance will be able to keep theirs.”
3. Mark Begich
“If you have an insurance program or a health care policy you want of (inaudible), you keep it”
4. Mary Landrieu
“While those individuals who like the coverage they already have will be able to keep their current plan. This is a very accurate description of this bill before us – The Patient Protection and Affordability Act. It’s very accurate.”
5. Hillary Clinton
“You keep the insurance you have if you like it.”
6. Nancy Pelosi
“If you like what you have and you want to keep it, you have the choice to do that.”
7. Barack Obama
“If you like your health care plan you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period.”
Isn’t it interesting that when the Republicans threatened to use the ‘nuclear option’, Democrats raised holy hell, spouting how it was not what the founders intended, but now that the Dems are in control it’s exactly what the founders wanted? I honestly don’t believe the Dems know a damn thing about the founders, or the founding, of this nation. They know nothing about what those men, and women, had to put on the line to grant the current crop the liberties they take for granted, and destroy on a daily basis.
This is nothing more than a power grab by the Democrats, as THEY called it back when it was threatened in 2005. Note I said threatened. The Republicans did not grab the power, as I’ve no doubt many believed such an action would have been wrong. The Democrats have no concept of right and wrong, fair, or unfair. I suppose they, falsely, believe they will be in power forever? I’m afraid they are delusional. We are on to their games of lying, cheating, and stealing of elections, through fraudulent votes, and cooking numbers to make themselves look better. IF, on the off chance they pull any more of their games, WE, The People will have a response, and they won’t like it.
They Got Away With It
Amy Payne – The Foundry
As President Obama said, they got away with it.
Harry Reid and the Democrat-controlled Senate got away with changing the Senate’s rules so that they can shove through anything they want without having to worry about Republicans filibustering against it.
Just a few short years ago, then-Senator Obama spoke forcefully against doing what Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) just did. When Republicans talked about a similar rule change in 2005, Obama said (emphasis added):
I urge my Republican colleagues not to go through with changing these rules. In the long run, it is not a good result for either party. One day Democrats will be in the majority again, and this rule change will be no fairer to a Republican minority than it is to a Democratic minority. I sense that talk of the nuclear option is more about power than about fairness. I believe some of my colleagues propose this rule change because they can get away with it rather than because they know it is good for our democracy.
Yesterday, the President’s strong words in support of the filibuster were but a memory, as he declared his about-face in favor of the Democratic majority seizing power. “I support the step a majority of Senators today took to change the way that Washington is doing business,” he said, describing Reid’s power grab in lofty, for-the-people terms.
Lies are lies, no matter what the subject! That being said, Clinton’s lies should have destroyed his marriage, and his credibility, but they didn’t. Personally, I might have done a Bobbitt on that dude.
Now, Obama’s lies? Well, that’s a whole different kettle of fish. HIS lies destroy economies, families, and our credibility.
See the difference? One was internal, the other…very external! Still, liars should never be in positions of power. They should be hung out to dry! I guess the Democrats love liars!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never drank from a fire hydrant. They have those really tight screw looking things that firemen have to use a special BIG tool on to remove them so they can attach a big ol’ long hose to so they can fight fires. That’s what those things are for….fight fires….not for human consumption!
The EPA is a tyrannical agency with a Napoleon complex. A bully, to say the least! You know, the little guy in the bar that decides to show what a big man he is by taking a swing at the biggest guy in the room. Unfortunately for us, we don’t have a ‘big guy’ in the room to fight these morons. They say you can’t do something, like build on your own property, or install a fire hydrant (and the list goes on and on), and that’s that! No recourse! Oh, you can go to court, but it’ll cost you a fortune, and the EPA is paid by the very people who are fighting against them, so it’s a lose/lose. And they know it!
Ask me how the government could save a lot of money? Start with scrapping the tyrants at the EPA! They are costing the taxpayers way too much for dictating how, when, where and what.
Well, in truth, we are actually pussifying them. Let’s be honest about this, shall we? Kids are no longer allowed to be kids. They aren’t allowed to speak the truth, they aren’t allowed to grow up to be responsible adults. Someone else makes their decisions for them. Without making mistakes, kids will never learn from those mistakes, and grow as people.

My goodness there were a LOT of lies flying! I actually watched some of the testimony. What a joke! Rs asked serious questions. Ds were so busy licking boots and insulting Rs, they accomplished nothing. After an hour or so, I had to turn it off. Dear Lord, how did those people get into office? Well, I’ll tell ya! We have people who want to be taken care of, and want to do nothing to earn their keep, who believe they are owed! THEY are the ones who keep returning those jackwagons to D.C. And they disgust me!
Health care is NOT a right! I don’t owe you diddly! And it’s about dadburn time people pull their heads out of their hind ends, snap to reality, and get their own lives in order. There are a lot of people who are going to have to answer to God for the evil they have pushed on society.
For even when we were with you, this we warned you of,
that if there were any, which would not work, that he should not eat.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 (1599 Geneva Bible)
And THIS is just WRONG! It bad enough that cussing has become common on supposed family shows. Sex is pushed, being a slut, male or female, is just honky dory.
Maybe I’ve become a prude in my old age? I don’t watch the so called sitcoms. I quit watching them when “Friends” crossed the line of common decency back in the last century, and I was much younger then. I grew up in the age of of twin beds, which I never understood, even after my mother explained it to me. Seemed rather silly to me, then and now.
Nowadays, I find a great deal offensive… especially commercials. They tend to portray men as total incompetents, or utterly stupid.
Men may find the Victoria Secret spots intriguing, to say the least, but do you really think if you buy their product, you are going to be pencil thing with big boobs falling out of your bra? Is it really necessary to parade young women in their underwear?
Must I be exposed to men’s failing…umm… members…on every commercial break?
Must we be inundated with commercials about medications that have more side effects (and might kill you) than condition they’re meant to treat? Doctors really hate those things cuz they have patients trying to tell them what they want, not what they need!
Now, cussing in a flippin’ commercial? Wasn’t it bad enough the company has a raving lunatic as their spokesperson, aka Alec Baldwin? Now they have to have another flaming lib that cusses? Do they really think this will bring more customers? Maybe liberals, who mostly live off the gubmint teat, but those who work for a living, with a modicum of self respect, will most likely pass them up for a more adult company.
Let’s face a very real problem! The federal government can’t run ANYTHING efficiently! Why, for the love of all that’s holy, would we trust them with our health care, our jobs, our children, our borders, etc. Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat! Reality snap here people! Barack Hussein Obama is the LAST person I would let make decisions about ANYTHING to do with the economy, that biggest drain being Obamacare, AND the damn ‘you owe me’ programs, aka food stamps, welfare, medicaid, medicare, etc. If you’ve paid into something your entire life, yeah, you should be getting a large chunk back.
It’s time for the country to grow up and be responsible for their own well being. It’s also time for Congress, and the administration, to start behaving like adults and stop being petulant children. Do they run their own households the way they run the economy? I sure as hell hope not! Then again, the Obama’s have never really had to be grown ups, soooo…. Well, maybe it’s time they learn, too! If the government, at every level, was a private business, they’d have been out of business a LONG time ago! So, why do we keep electing the same jackwagons that have screwed everything up? BOTH sides suck, it’s just that one side sucks more than the other!
Fix it! Stop voting for the morons who can’t figure out how to balance a checkbook! 90% of Congress needs to be kicked to the curb! If those we elect are incapable of following the U.S. Constitution, which lays out their limited obligations, then why the blazes should we return them, over and over again, to the office so they can royally screw US over?
Obama’s Priorities vs. the Economy
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Now that the government is whirring again, President Obama has identified three priorities for the country. Here’s a quick look at how they stack up against your priorities.
“There is a lot of work ahead of us, including our need to earn back the trust of the American people that has been lost over the last few weeks,” Obama said. “And we can begin to do that by addressing the real issues that they care about.”
Just ONE of the many reason…..I’m 100% sick of these spineless weasels!!
Aside from reopening the government and agreeing to raise America’s debt over the current $16.7 trillion limit, the Republicans made several other concession to President Obama and the Democrats. One such example is that Obamacare would receive funding. The Republicans would get to take out a portion of the president’s signature legislation, but the law would substantially remain intact. The AP reports:
Under a proposal she and other GOP senators have been developing, a medical device tax that helps finance the health care law would be repealed, and millions of individuals eligible for subsidies to purchase health insurance under the program would be subject to stronger income verification.
In addition, some of the across-the-board “sequester” cuts would be reversed under the GOP plan. It has not been determined which specific cuts will be targeted at this time.
In exchange for meeting, at least momentarily, all of Obama’s demands, the House GOP is seeking a “framework” for future negotiations on addressing longer-term budget issues. These negotiations would be led for the Republicans by Rep. Paul Ryan, who is likely to seek a “grand bargain” resolving the nation’s structural budget problems.
They’re stone deaf! They do not hear WE, The People. This was not a negotiation. This was just one more suck up by the RINOs to their new masters. Cowards! Plain and simple. Sniveling cowards!!!
The Unmistakable Parallels Between Abortion and Slavery
by Calvin Frieburger
Whenever a pro-lifer dares to compare abortion to slavery, pro-aborts go apoplectic. Candor about abortion’s horror is a major no-no, and besides, don’t we know that liberals have a monopoly on invoking bad things done to minorities? But fortunately, apologists not liking something isn’t a good enough reason for the rest of us to stop making a comparison that fits like a glove.
Both denied the humanity of an entire class of people
The core parallel couldn’t be more obvious. Fetuses may be killed at will, and blacks were held like cattle, because both groups were said to be somehow lesser than the rest of us. In the fetus’s case, it can be any number of factors – they’re just cells, lack consciousness, can’t feel pain, can’t survive outside the womb, etc. In the black person’s case, it was because of skin color, more primitive culture, and lesser mental faculties. In the words of Dr. Josiah Nott:
The plain and inevitable deduction is this: – That the negro is a totally distinct and inferior animal or species of animal from the Caucasian; that the negro is the connecting link between man and the brute creation; that the negro is intended by nature for a similar dependence upon the Caucasian man, in which only the ox, the ass, and the horse, fulfil [sic.] the intent of their creation; that the negro race is the result of a different act of the Creator from that which originated the Caucasian, and is consequently beyond the scope of those abstract axioms of the white race, which declare that all MEN have equal rights.
The left can’t stand facts. They balk when informed it was the Democrat Party who insisted that owning slaves was a ‘right’. They can’t stand the fact it was the Democrat Party who started the KKK, their terrorist wing, who murdered white Republicans, and slaughtered so many blacks. Do they not know about the Democrats in Opelousas, Louisiana murdered nearly 300 African-Americans (Republicans) who tried to prevent an assault against a Republican newspaper editor in September of 1868? How can they face the fact that it was the Democrats who fought hard against any bill that would give rights to the freed slaves, including the right to life! Yep, it was the Democrats who filibustered an anti-lynching law.
They still have a hard time understanding that the RIGHT to life includes the unborn child. Yes, child. This is not a ‘tumor’, a blob, or any of the other absurd terms they choose. We hear the ‘my body, my choice’ nonsense so often, many have become deaf. But it’s NOT your body that is being ripped apart, now is it. Nope. You can rip your own body into shreds, but this is another human being you are murdering, so NO, it’s not your RIGHT!
Why are there so many murder mills in poor black neighborhoods? Do you ever wonder? Well, the found of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, wanted to eliminate the entire race. Apparently, the current bunch are attempting to make her dream come true.
Yes….slavery and abortion are connected, and it’s the Democrats that were, and are, in favor of both. The black community is being kept in slavery through Democrat policies, and attempting to eliminate them, slowly but surely, just as they attempted to do in Tuskegee, Alabama.
Totally : I still find it amazing that I knew this young man before he could even drive. And now, here he is, sharing his views with the world. Young Cal was a very strong pro-lifer even way back then, and has stood strong in his views on lives of the pre-born. To say I’m proud to know him would be an understatement!
Veterans first fought America’s wars, then they fought the National Park Service over White House-ordered closures of war memorials because of the partial shutdown of the federal government.
Now they’re developing a response to President Obama’s “war” against them: A rally.
The Million Vet March on the Memorials will be held Sunday, Oct. 13, at 9 a.m. Eastern at the World War II memorial on the National Mall, the location where rangers under orders from the White House tried, unsuccessfully, to prevent vets from visiting in recent days.
The announcement said the group Special Operations Speaks is organizing the rally because the Obama administration “is using the government shutdown as an excuse to keep our veterans from acknowledging the debt owed to them and their predecessors.”
“This is unforgivable. It is also unjustified, as no taxpayer funds are spent by keeping these shrines open. We will open them ourselves, if that’s what it takes,” said the group, founded by former Navy SEAL Larry Bailey.
The behavior of the liar in chief, his lackey dimwits in Congress, and let’s not forget about his lapdogs in the media, has been, to say the least, abhorrent! They’re playing with people’s lives, and not a one of them give a happy crap!
They paid the ultimate price serving their country — but their government can’t spare a cent to cover their funerals.
The stooges on Capitol Hill added insult to tragedy Tuesday when it was revealed that the families of four soldiers and a Marine who were killed in Afghanistan have not received a $100,000 “death gratuity” because of the government shutdown.
The cash is meant to cover interment, flights and other expenses tied to the servicemembers’ ultimate sacrifice. It is usually wired within three days.
So now, these families have to come up with the money that is OWED them by the government to take care of their loved ones transport and internment? Are you FREAKIN’ kidding me? Oh, but Obama has no problem keeping his golf course open! Or paying EXTRA park police to shut down areas that are OWNED by the American people!
He blocks Honor Flight vets from seeing THEIR memorial, but allows damn criminal invaders to have a rally on the NATIONAL Mall, that is verboten to CITIZENS!
Yeah…I’m more than just a little pissed off! I don’t wish ill on anyone, normally, but I pray God will give these pigs their just due!
If you can get to D.C. (I wish I could), stand with our vets! Do not let the dictator win!!
…Did Obama Close the WWII Memorial to Hurt Veterans?
