An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Well, he’s not really welcome here either, but that doesn’t mean we get to toss him out…..sadly.
I’m starting to wonder if Jackson is turning into Memphis. Another young man cut down, and another child without a father.
The Boko Haram scum just never stop, do they. 234 school age girls are still missing after a mass kidnapping carried out by those vile creatures from hell. The military claim to be helpless in protecting civilians. Well, here’s a thought…how about arming those civilians and allowing them to protect themselves, and their families.
Yep! That’s a poke in the eye of Putin, isn’t it. Explain to me again just why Obama failed to live up to the agreement to put that missile defense system in place? No, I don’t want to get involved in Ukraine’s current problems with Russia, but don’t ya think we could at least send something that would actually do them some good? I mean, after all, Obama has no problem arming our enemies, so wouldn’t it make more sense to help an ally? A real head scratcher. /snark
Excuse me while I pick my chin up off the floor! Let the damn horses do what they do, and give that money to our military! For the love of all that is holy!! Can we find anyone in this administration with an ounce of common sense? The alphabet organizations should be the first to go!!
Oh hell yeah, the shooting was TOTALLY justified. It’s a shame the cops can’t bring him back to life to do it again, and again, and again. But that’s all right, he’ll be getting plenty of punishment where he’s going!
Different strokes for different folks, but that’s just a bit creepy. I love my mom still, but I’m not going to wear her hair!
No one company should be able to silence dissent. Comcast isn’t a ‘friend’ to the public. Perhaps that company should be dissolved? “Obama on demand channel”? You have got to be freakin’ kidding me! Well, ya can’t say no one notice they are MORE than a bit biased! Does Comcast have stock holders? I’d say a serious investigation needs to be done on their practices! Competition is good. Any area that has only one provider should be seriously looked at, with a fine toothed comb.
A real class act. Dude is so self absorbed is down right disgusting.
Tire insurance? Ya know…that’s not a bad idea at all. I’ve met quite a few potholes in recent weeks that could have done some serious damage to my truck. I was able to avoid them, most of the time.
Either this woman is insane, or she is just one more of the self loathing leftists. It doesn’t seem to matter what country, there are way too many such people, and many are in positions of power, where they should NOT be!
Tony Blair is a bit to far left for my tastes, but he does make a REAL good point! Pick the RIGHT side of history, and stop giving in to the nazis of the Middle East!
Margaret Sanger Declaring ‘No More Babies’
…on Zo at Dem Lawmaker’s Meet & Greet!
The Boy Scouts had it right!
“If you do a smart plan — the Congressional EMP Commission estimated that you could protect the whole country for about $2 billion,” Pry told Watchdog.org. “That’s what we give away in foreign aid to Pakistan every year.”
Heaven forbid we stop giving money to our enemies! Yes, enemies! I don’t care if those yahoos up there in D.C. say these are allies in the ‘war on terror’. Didn’t the current resident of the White House say it was over anyway? *insert very rude words here*
In the first few minutes of an EMP, nearly half a million people would die. That’s the worst-case scenario that author William R. Forstchen estimated in 2011 would be the result of an EMP on the electric grid — whether by an act of God, or a nuclear missile detonating in Earth’s upper atmosphere.
Yeah, likely, I’d be one of ‘em. Pace maker thingy would get zapped…BUT…just in case, I’ve done my best to convince my family, who tends to make fun of me, to be prepared.
It’s not just EMPs people should worry about; all kinds of things can happen that will leave you without power for extended periods of time. Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and even severe thunder storms. Having hand crank lanterns, when the lights go out, is a great idea for the short term, but what about the long term. What about food? Do you have enough to last a minimum of a week, in case the storm knocked out the power? Water is essential for survival. Do you have any stashed away in a cool place?
My family can laugh at my concerns all they want, but if a hurricane hit their area, I know full well one of ‘em is going to be saying “I wish I had listened”. An EMP is the very worst case scenario, but it wouldn’t hurt to do a few preps, would it?
I have a feeling that if we ever did have a nuke exploded above us, or perhaps a solar flare does a number on us, there will be teenagers all over the country going stark raving mad, whining that they can’t text their friends, and blame mommy or daddy for the situation. They have NO clue how to survive in a non-electric world! I think having prepper camps for teens might be a good idea.
Seriously, it’s a good idea to always be prepared, just in case, y’know? Fully stocked first aid kits, plenty of water, freeze dried food, blankets…..well, the list is fairly long, and you can find such lists on the internet. Just in case! And don’t forget about your pets! They’re family too! Always have extra HUGE bags of critter food on hand!
Whatever normal is, which is different for everyone, don’cha think? My normal, at the moment, is sitting on the bed in a motel room somewhere in Louisiana. Well, Amite actually, but since I have no clue how to pronounce it, I’ll leave it at that. *snort*
During my drive I had the chance to listen to Andrew Wilkow‘s whole show. That doesn’t happen very often. He had some excellent guests, and is well worth listening to the show, if ya have the time. Then, there was a ‘progressive’ caller who likely couldn’t tell the difference between a democracy and a republic, named A.J. Well, A.J. insisted that even with the downfall of the country, Wilkow would still have a job because of the 1st Amendment. Then, it started. Wilkow had asked if people had read the 10 planks of communism, and compared that to the Bill of Rights. A.J. made a HUGE mistake of calling in cuz she got ripped a new one. The sad thing is, she didn’t even realize that’s what happened. It was great! What a moron! I don’t remember what hour it was, but yep….Wilkow was right!
I wonder what those other drivers that were passing me (at about 80mph) thought of that crazy woman yelling? Well, I was yelling at the radio, for all the good it does, but I was that chapped! I mean REALLY chapped! So, because I believe the federal government overstepped the bounds of their authority, and am supportive of Cliven Bundy, I’m a ‘domestic terrorist’? If that wasn’t bad enough, I hear that low life, scum sucking, SOB flat out LYING about events going on at the Bundy ranch. Oh yeah…. I was definitely yelling at the radio, throwing in a few words that I don’t normally use.
We have to remember, this is the face of the Democrat party in the Senate. Is this really the type of being we want in any leadership position? I say that Harry Reid needs to be removed from the position of Senate Majority Leader, and replaced with someone with a brain. He is a disgrace, and the Democrats should be embarrassed!
Well, you’ll be happy to know that I did make it to the motel without running into anyone, or doing anything rude. Heh. God willing, I’ll be home tomorrow!
Ya know, it just occurred to me…. I haven’t checked my private email in….well, I can’t remember the last time I did. I should probably do that….tomorrow. Tonight, I’m going to stretch out, and pretend I’m a cumquat.
House Speaker John Boehner and his Republican leadership team are telling donors and industry groups that they want to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of other party members to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections.
Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Boehner, R-Ohio, said at a recent Las Vegas fundraiser that he was “hell-bent on getting this done this year,” two people in the room told The Wall Street Journal.
A Boehner spokesman didn’t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Obama proves himself a trustworthy partner to Republicans.
Has Boehner lost his tiny little mind? Sad to say, he is not much of a leader, and he hasn’t done the conservative cause much good.
We already have laws. Try enforcing them!
The Middle East War on Christians
Muslim-majority nations are doing to followers of Jesus what they did to the Jews.
By Ron Prosor
This week, as Jews celebrate the Passover holiday, they are commemorating the Bible’s Exodus story describing a series of plagues inflicted on ancient Egypt that freed the Israelites, allowing them to make their way to the Holy Land. But over the past century, another exodus, driven by a plague of persecution, has swept across the Middle East and is emptying the region of its Christian population. The persecution is especially virulent today.
The Middle East may be the birthplace of three monotheistic religions, but some Arab nations appear bent on making it the burial ground for one of them. For 2,000 years, Christian communities dotted the region, enriching the Arab world with literature, culture and commerce. At the turn of the 20th century, Christians made up 26% of the Middle East’s population. Today, that figure has dwindled to less than 10%. Intolerant and extremist governments are driving away the Christian communities that have lived in the Middle East since their faith was born.
In the rubble of Syrian cities like Aleppo and Damascus, Christians who refused to convert to Islam have been kidnapped, shot and beheaded by Islamist opposition fighters. In Egypt, mobs of Muslim Brotherhood members burn Coptic Christian churches in the same way they once obliterated Jewish synagogues. And in Iraq, terrorists deliberately target Christian worshippers. This past Christmas, 26 people were killed when a bomb ripped through a crowd of worshipers leaving a church in Baghdad’s southern Dora neighborhood.
