An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

What the blazes is the point of getting rid of ObamaCare if you keep the taxes? ObamaCare has already screwed up medical care, increasing the cost of EVERYTHING, including insurance premiums. You know, that thing that Obama claimed would NOT increase your premiums. Just one more lie from this administration.
Perhaps if they would do more to prevent fraud, there would be billions of dollars in savings. But alas, this isn’t a priority of the feds.
While I see a lot of good in this summary of Ryan’s budget, there is so much more that could be done. Yes, D.C. has a spending problem, no matter what Pelosi or Obama says. End the unconstitutional spending and we just MIGHT see some major improvements. That won’t happen though, because Washington doesn’t give a damn. It’s not their money they are wasting on useless crap! They have made us ‘slaves’ to their addictions.
First Look at the 2014 Ryan Budget
At first look, the budget unveiled today by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan (R-WI) advances much-needed reforms and importantly accomplishes the crucial goal of balancing the budget within the decade, though this is partially on the coattails of Obama’s tax increases. Not a silver bullet, it is more of a stasis budget, rather than a bolder plan that builds on the reforms of previous years.
There are six things that each budget from the House, Senate, and President should accomplish. These are laid out in the Heritage plan, Saving the American Dream, which:
- Balances the budget in less than 10 years, without raising taxes, and keeps the budget in balance thereafter;
- Swiftly overhauls entitlement programs, including Social Security, to guarantee economic security to seniors while making the programs affordable;
- Repeals Obamacare in its entirety;
- Fully funds defense;
- Rolls back discretionary spending; and
- Rolls back recent tax increases with a sweeping, growth-oriented tax reform plan and caps taxes at the historical average of 18.5 percent.
Here’s how, at first blush, the Ryan plan measures up:
HEY! Republican elitists! THIS is what you are suppose to do! Stick to your oath of office, and stop playing footsie with those who want to destroy the country!
Ignore the fact that the setting for the response was another royal screw up by the Republicans. Turn on the A/C, put the water closer to hand, and stop being incompetent boobs! Criminy!
The content of Sen Rubio’s response was, for the most part, pretty good. It’s quite obvious that Obama and the senator see two different Americas.
It could be considered the first vote of the 2016 presidential primary, and Sen. Marco Rubio defied most of his party by voting against the “fiscal cliff” deal GOP leader Sen. Mitch McConnell and Vice President Joseph R. Biden struck.
Mr. Rubio was one of just eight senators to vote against the legislation, which cleared in an easy 89-8 vote just after 2 a.m. on New Year’s Day.
“Thousands of small businesses, not just the wealthy, will now be forced to decide how they’ll pay this new tax and, chances are, they’ll do it by firing employees, cutting back their hours and benefits, or postponing the new hire they were looking to make,” he said. “And to make matters worse, it does nothing to bring our dangerous debt under control.”
Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican whose father, Rep. Ron Paul, shook up the GOP’s nomination race in 2012, also voted against the deal.
To be honest, I don’t think these two men voted against it because they were thinking of 2016. I believe they did it because it was the RIGHT thing to do. Isn’t it a shame that so many others with that R behind their names are incapable of standing on principle?
Many of the GOP’s staunchest fiscal conservatives voted for the agreement, including Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee.
In other cases, my respect level went down. Didn’t have much for TN senators anymore anyway. I have NO respect for Democrat>liberal>progressive>socialist>communist anyway, so that’s not an issue.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the House of Representatives remember they are the ones who hold the purse strings, and can flat out say NO to all these destructive taxes? Wouldn’t it be nice if the whole lot would remember just how they got their jobs, and how they can, quite easily lose them? Yeah…I know… fantasy land.
I seriously doubt he’d want the job. LOL But this is what we need! No more worrying about offending the fence sitters. No more kowtowing to the left so they’ll “like us”. Screw them! Tell the truth! If they don’t like the truth, then that’s THEIR problem! Let the media have it with both barrels!!

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!
Looking for a little insurance if your guy loses the presidential election? JetBlue has you covered, offering a chance for a free flight out of the country if Nov. 6 doesn’t go your way.
Dubbed “Election Protection,” the airline announced Wednesday it will give away 1,006 round-trip flights — that’s 2012 seats — to customers whose candidate loses next month.
“We’ve all heard it said before: if my candidate does not win, I’m leaving the country,” Marty St. George, JetBlue senior vice president marketing and commercial strategy, said in a statement. “Fun is one of our five founding values, and in this spirit we decided to give people a chance to recover from the political noise and follow through on their claim to skip town if their candidate comes up short.”
Does anyone remember how many ‘celebrities’ said they were going to leave if Bush won? Well, he did, and I’ll be darned if they aren’t still here, making noise, and being dipwads. One can only hope that they’ll keep their word this time, and head off to whichever commie country they choose. Permanently!
Travelers who visit jetblueelectionprotection.com simply identify their political party and choose their desired international destination, including Mexico, Aruba, Costa Rica or Jamaica. Then, if their candidate loses, they’ll be entered for a chance to win a (temporary) escape.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Democrats had beaten Republicans in sign-ups, 62 percent to 38 percent. The Bahamas appeared to be the top getaway choice for Republicans, while Costa Rica barely edged out the Turks and Caicos Islands for Democrats.
I wonder if those percentages are any indication that the dims are expecting their clown to lose? One can only hope! But on the serious side….where is there to go? This was the last great hope for freedom from oppression, and look were we are now….. stuck with an oppressive regime, although not as oppressive as it will be if Obama gets his way.
As an evangelical, I have no problem voting for a Mormon, anymore than I’d have a problem voting for a Catholic or a Jew. Now a Muslim? Yeah… I’d have a SERIOUS problem, but other than that… After learning more about Mormonism, and having many of the myths, promoted by the media over the last few years, I have even less of a problem voting for Mitt Romney!
Accurate information is a good thing. Now, I don’t take Glenn’s word for everything. I actually look things up for myself. I’d suggest others do the same. Get the facts! Do I agree with all their doctrine? Paleeeez! I don’t agree with a lot of the doctrines of my own church. Heh! Faith is based on the Word of God….not the whims of man!
As for Romney, he holds more of the same values as I do….Obama hold NONE of the same values. It’s that simple! I believe in life, liberty, and the PURSUIT of happiness. I believe our rights come from God…not the government, which is made up of very imperfect humans. I believe this country has been taken on a magic carpet ride that must end…either with our destruction, or with our rebirth as a republic. I vote for our rebirth.
And yes, there is a bit of Glenn’s snark inserted. Deal with it!
Umm…that would be a big fat NO! Obama’s lapdogs once again proves why the public doesn’t trust them.
This is huge. Brian Williams, the anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News, interviewed Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan after his RNC speech to rebut the accusations of several Democrats and so-called media “fact checkers” that his speech was full of inaccuracies and lies. The following is what never aired:
To be perfectly honest, the interview does look pretty bad for the Democrats and their mainstream media allies, given that Ryan is quicker on his feet than the political hit men being sent to take him out. But the Romney campaign knew about the interview, so there was a fair chance that the footage would see the light of day.
So now there’s not just the interview that went horribly awry for the Democrats, but the lingering question: what are you so afraid of, NBC?
What are they afraid of? Well, the truth absolutely terrifies them. They fear that their messiah will be found out to be complete phony…a ‘false god’ if you will. Paul Ryan is one of those extremely rare politician, that doesn’t behave like your typical politician. He’s actually HONEST! And that just scare the bejabbers out of the left stream media!
I will be the first to admit, I was none too enthusiastic about the ‘selection’ of Mitt Romney. If my memory serves, he wasn’t even my third choice. In 2008, I think he was second or third, but then again, look who they chose. However, after the last few days of watching the convention, learning more about the man, I can well see a POTUS. A REAL one too. Is he perfect? Pfft! You show me one who has been, D or R, and I’ll call you a liar! Some a WHOLE lot less perfect than others!
I think we just might have a chance to return to the America of our forefathers. The America that is prosperous, one WE can be proud of, once again. But it’s going to be a hard road, and there are going to be obstacles (I call them leftards) because there are going to HAVE to be tough and unpopular choices to make. I believe, if WE, all of us, can pull together, we CAN make the difference. Do we survive as the United States of America? Or will we allow those who would destroy the Dream to continue dragging us down the wrong path? For me, the choice is simple. I have a daughter, grandchildren, and a great grandson. It’s not my life that is important, but their future! I want them to know the America I grew up in. I want them to have the knowledge of where we came from, and carry that knowledge with them, so they can have a future of hope, not despair. I want YOUR children to have that hope of a brighter future too!
This IS the most important election of our lives. Let’s make the right choices for future generations!
Some folks thought he was just rambling. No…he was having a conversation with the ‘empty suit’…aka that chair.
…and does nothing but tell the truth!
I’ve got to add something here. Read some of the comments that have been made under the videos, YouTube site, and you’ll see why we need a major overhaul. It’s still amazing to me that with all the resources we have, literally at our fingertips, there are still so many who prefer to remain ignorant.
