An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for Just Cuz
You might have noticed, things seem to be running smoothly after the big upgrade by Bluehost. As best I can tell, no glitches from this end. I suppose I could have posted something last night, but ya know… I just didn’t feel like it!
I took a side trip to Wally World down in Corinth, and was quite surprised that there were no where near the number of people I expected, since this is the ‘shopping season’. Jeeez…I hate that term! This is NOT a shopping season, but we have sure turned it into one. This is the CHRISTmas season! Let’s get that RIGHT! Sheesh!
Anyway, I had to pick up some non fridge items to send to Afghanistan, and my latest ‘craving’…marshmallows, so I figured while I was in the area, why not! Besides, the tax is lower down there. Sadly, they have a state income tax, so that ruled out Mississippi when we decided to leave the frozen lands of Wisconsin. I suppose it all works out in the end, one way or another.
Good news from my foray into MS… my battery is good for another 2 years and 3 months. Heh. The bad news, I’ll have to go back down there again in another 3 months to make sure it’s still working. Apparently, I only had two incidents show up on my ticker readout, and they were fast beating. Told the nurse that’s likely when I was raking leaves. Heh. She agreed. Usually, there are incident of my dadburn heart stopping, which is why I need that internal mp3 player. The pumper is only 60% functional without it. sigh… If it’s not one thing, it’s another, eh? The heart, the spine issues, the nasty disease….oh well! I woke up this morning, and for that, I am grateful….to God!
So, while I was driving back from Corinth, I got to listen to the beginning of Mark Levin’s show. I just love him. Take no bull, says what he means, and gives a major slap down to whoever needs one! Ya gotta hear the show…at least his beginning monologue!
HealthCare.gov is racist! Heh! Just HAD to share this with ya!
Speaking of Obamacare, and seriously, lately, does anyone ever talk about anything else these days? Well, Michelle’s friends who ‘built’ this fiasco didn’t include any security into the site! Piece of advice, DO NOT EVEN TYPE THE WEB ADDRESS INTO YOUR COMPUTER! Jeeez! More than 3 years, and they still have a failed site, with no security? Let me ask….how long did it take for Amazon to create their site, and get it up and running, handling MILLIONS of customers, around the world? Don’t you think it would have been a good idea for the gubmint to contact the REAL experts, and get their advice, instead doing the crony thing, which is what Obama did in hiring a loser, FOREIGN company! Logic would say to shut down the site, and get it fixed before anyone has their identity stolen, and their lives ruined! But then, there is no logic in this administration, and they are spending OUR money to push for Obamacare, in another campaign to promote this disaster! Bottom line: They don’t give a damn! A REAL man, a REAL leader, would admit this was a mistake, and take responsibility. But then, we don’t have one of those in the White House, do we.
Please, for the love of all that’s holy, work to get the Dems out of the Senate, take more of their seats in the House. These people are going to kill me, and many like me, if we don’t get this Obama BS revoked! Want the problem solved? Allow people to buy insurance across state lines! Can you imagine the competition? Costs will decrease, and guess what! You don’t have to pay for something you don’t need….like maternity care…and the BIG prize…you won’t be forced to pay for the murder of children. Now, wouldn’t THAT be a novel concept? This idea has been proposed many times by those on the right, my own Congress critter, Mz Marsha has repeatedly introduce bills to do just that, but hey…the insurance lobbies are all about the big bucks, and they don’t want more competition.
So, the problem isn’t all Obama and his minions. It’s the lobbyists, and THEIR minions in both houses of Congress. They no longer work for us. They work for whoever donates the most money to their campaign coffers, who will reassure their re-election so they can take even MORE control of our lives. Ever get the feeling that something is SERIOUSLY out of whack? Yeah….me too!
Liberals laughed at the House in 2011 when they read the U.S. Constitution on the floor. There was a darn good reason for them to do that, but it really didn’t matter in the long run. The Constitution is just a piece of paper, written by old white guys a long time ago, and means nothing in their world. Well, it means a LOT in my world, and it should in yours as well. If we don’t get this country back on track, the way the Founders, you know, those old white guys, intended, we won’t have a country to get on any track but the one headed into the cesspool…the direction it is heading now!
I suppose all our concentrating on the Obamadontcare fiasco makes D.C. think we’ve all forgotten about the other scandals that have plagued this administration. Well, guess what! We have NOT forgotten! We well remember the murdered Americans in Benghazi. We haven’t forgotten the IRS targeting conservative groups. We remember OBAMA’S shut down of the government, his arrogance, the media pointing fingers at the WRONG people, and the disrespect shown to our greatest heroes. No, we have NOT forgotten!
….twas the day of……….THE BUNKER! Heh.
Yes…it’s late in the day, but still. Hey…I had some things to do, and got totally distracted.
So, one of my FB friends had a link to a different kind of quiz. Aura? Well, ok, so it’s not the typical type of thing I do, but since it’s a crappy day, everything aches, so why the heck not? What else does an ol’ broad have to do on a cold, sleety, blech day? Ok, so I did feed the cats, scooped the litter box, did a load of laundry, and even put them away, but other than that….
Just a few questions, and they think they’ve got ya pegged. This is the link, if ya wanna play along. What is Your True Color Aura?
This is me? Hmmm…. Had to respond to this part, don’cha know.
Your Aura is Purple!
Purples hold themselves to sky high standards, and are always very graceful. Pfft! And I use to be…ballet will do that. Now? LMBO
Purple is envied, idolized, and copied without even realizing it. I don’t flippin’ think so!
They are an icon for those who know you. “They” what? Huh?
While it is hard to be a perfectionist, rest assured it’s paying off! ROFLMBO Hardly!
I had to have another procedure done on my back this morning. Yippee. Sadly, as with the last one, I am not feeling any relief. Maybe tomorrow?
I’m suppose to be putting ice on the injection site, which I am doing. However, always remember to pick it up off the chair so you can put it in the correct position after you sit down. If you don’t, MEGA cold hiney will result, and trust me, you do NOT wanna jerk up that fast after having a back procedure!
Posting any serious stuff right now is totally out of the realm of my abilities at the moment. I’m still a WEE bit drugged!

The U.S. government has just passed a new law called: “The Affordable Boat Act” declaring that every citizen MUST purchase a new boat, by April 2014. These “affordable” boats will cost an average of $54,000-$155,000 each. This does not include taxes, trailers, towing fees, licensing and registration fees, fuel, docking and storage fees, maintenance or repair costs.
This law has been passed, because until now, typically only wealthy and financially responsible people have been able to purchase boats. This new laws ensures that every American can now have a “affordable” boat of their own, because everyone is “entitled” to a new boat. If you purchase your boat before the end of the year, you will receive 4 “free” life jackets; not including monthly usage fees.
In order to make sure everyone purchases an affordable boat, the costs of owning a boat will increase on average of 250-400% per year. This way, wealthy people will pay more for something that other people don’t want or can’t afford to maintain. But to be fair, people who cant afford to maintain their boat will be regularly fined and children (under the age of 26) can use their parents boats to party on until they turn 27; then must purchase their own boat.
If you already have a boat, you can keep yours (just kidding; no you can’t). If you don’t want or don’t need a boat, you are required to buy one anyhow. If you refuse to buy one or cant afford one, you will be regularly fined $800 until you purchase one or face imprisonment.
Failure to use the boat will also result in fines. People living in the desert; ghettos; inner cities or areas with no access to lakes are not exempt. Age, motion sickness, experience, knowledge nor lack of desire are acceptable excuses for not using your boat.
A government review board (that doesn’t know the difference between the port, starboard or stern of a boat) will decide everything, including; when, where, how often and for what purposes you can use your boat along with how many people can ride your boat and determine if one is too old or healthy enough to be able to use their boat. They will also decide if your boat has out lived its usefulness or if you must purchase specific accessories,(like a $500 compass) or a newer and more expensive boat.
Those that can afford yachts will be required to do so…its only fair. The government will also decide the name for each boat. Failure to comply with these rules will result in fines and possible imprisonment.
Government officials are exempt from this new law. If they want a boat, they and their families can obtain boats free, at the expense of tax payers. Unions, bankers and mega companies with large political affiliations ($$$) are also exempt.
If the government can force you to buy health care, they can force you to buy a boat….or ANYTHING else.
Yea…it’s that stupid!

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.
Ok, y’all might not find pics of my family all that entertaining, or informative, but hey…this is for MY benefit! Besides, watching the wee one growing up in pictures let’s us know just how much older WE are getting. Heh!
I saw this on Facebook, and of course, I had to swipe it so I could post it here. I’m polite, up to a point, but….
