An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

I have been attempting to stay away from as much politics as I can. The stress level is high, the pain level is higher, and I’m about on the verge of explosion! I didn’t even watch the hearings today, which had the Mr quite puzzled! So, when I saw this… I think I need Xanex, Valium, something!
Amid sequester and scandal in Washington, the White House announced Friday that the president and first lady will be hosting another concert as part of their “In Performance at the White House” series later this month.
The event will be held in the East Room of the White House and honor singer and songwriter Carole King, who will be awarded the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. King will be the first woman to receive the award, the White House noted in their announcement.
The program — to be streamed on the White House website and broadcast on PBS stations the evening of May 28 — will also feature performances by Gloria Estefan, Billy Joel, Jesse McCartney, Emeli Sandé, James Taylor, Trisha Yearwood and King herself.
Nero fiddles while Rome burns! There is something seriously wrong with that dude! The country is going to hell in a hand basket…actually, I think we are already there, and this asshat is having another lavish, star studded, party??? There are no words to describe what I’m feeling. Even narcissist can’t completely cover what this man/child is, but he is in serious need of psychiatric care!
It isn’t bad enough this poser in chief is riddled with scandals, does he have to insult our Marines, as well?
Apparently, yes….yes, he does. The guy has NO respect for our military, no matter the branch. Oh, he can say he honors them, and that hootchie dressin’ mama he’s married to can lay claims as well, but time and time again, they have both proven they have NONE, whatsoever!
Dude…hold your own freakin’ umbrella, or get one of your lackeys to do it, but for the love of pete, do not DEMAND a Marine to break protocol, and hold it for you! Oh…that’s right…you don’t know how they work, do you!
MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3
3035. UMBRELLAS (Female Marines). Female Marines may carry an all-black, plain standard or collapsible umbrella at their option during inclement weather with the service and dress uniforms. It will be carried in the left hand so that the hand salute can be properly rendered. Umbrellas may not be used/carried in formation nor will they be carried with the utility uniform. (emphasis mine)
Note there is NO provision for a male Marine to carry an umbrella under ANY circumstances!
Incompetent. Clueless. And very, VERY, dangerous!
I am trying to continue to respect the office, but I can NOT respect him!
President Obama announced Wednesday that acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller would resign in the wake of the agency scandal in which conservative groups were targeted — though Miller was apparently set to step down anyway.
An official close to Miller told Fox News, shortly after Obama’s brief announcement, that the IRS chief was “set to resign the position of acting commission as of early June.” He was planning to leave the IRS entirely a “couple of months later, regardless of the current controversy,” the source said.
These details were not mentioned by the president as he announced Wednesday evening Miller was resigning. Obama spoke following a meeting with Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew and other top department officials in which they reviewed a highly critical inspector general’s report on the practice. The report concluded poor management allowed agents to improperly target Tea Party and other groups for more than 18 months, starting in 2010.
If you watched that so called press conference, and didn’t laugh your hinder off, you just might be a “progressive”! The phony outrage was hilarious! Not only did he fail to mention the guy had already planned on leaving, he also didn’t mention the fact that the majority of these events occurred under his predecessor’s watch! And you can’t tell me Obama didn’t know about this! The dude has to be the most ill informed POTUS ever to step foot in the White House.
Oh, and it’s WAY past time to repeal the 16th Amendment!!!
Obama Reacts to Blogger on Benghazi
What the hell is Loyalty Day? Are we suppose to put state above God? Not gonna happen! At least not in THIS house!!

“As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,” said Obama. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but I HIGHLY doubt God is going to “bless” an organization(and the women that utilize their ‘services’), that murders His creations (babies), on an hourly basis, to their idols (self, job, etc)! Abortion is NOT ‘healthcare’. It is murder. Period. If Margaret Sanger had her way, Barack Hussein Obama would never have been born.
“[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children…” – Sanger, 1922
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” – Sanger, 1922
“Give dysgenic groups [people with 'bad genes'] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.” – Sanger, 1932
“We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” – Sanger, 1939
Tanakh – Ezekiel 16
20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto Me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Were thy harlotries a small matter,
21 that thou hast slain My children, and delivered them up, in setting them apart unto them?
First, we have John Stossel on our public education system. More money for administration, but no improvement in the quality of education. If you ask me, kids are being so dumbed down, they can’t answer simple question about their own country! Oh, they know who won in such and such a season on American Idol, but they have NO idea who fought for their right to be totally oblivious.
Next, we have Tom Sullivan. So, Barack Hussein Obama has decided how much you save for your retirement? YOU earn the money, YOU save YOUR money, but he says no, you can’t save that much, so will take it away from you once you hit that mark. Who gave him the right to say who can retire with how much? NO ONE!
And, on that note…. I have things to do today!
President Obama is still not scheduled to visit the devastated community of West, Texas, where an explosion at a fertilizer plant five days ago killed 14 – including 11 emergency responders – and wounded approximately 200 people.
Up to 75 homes were damaged, as well as an apartment complex that was decimated.
Obama so far has sent prayers and money to the town, but not himself.
According to Bridget Johnson at PJ Media, Texas senator Ted Cruz said it is “doubtful” that Obama will visit the town.
I’m actually surprised he’s bother to mention the devastated town at all! He can’t bilk them for any money, so why would he go and show support for a little town in Texas that doesn’t lap up his communist lies? I mean, it’s not like they’d be forking any money over to him, right? So, no, in all likelihood, he will never step foot in that town, or the county. After all, he IS going to suck money from the rich libs in Dallas, why waste his time traveling less than 100 miles to thank the 100s of volunteers who have been putting their lives on the line searching for victims of a horrendous blast?
Well, since he’s scheduled to attend a big shindig thrown by the Baby Murderers of America, how could he possibly fit it in, after all. Once again, his true colors shine through!
Oh, wait…that’s not news. Sorry. Got carried away!
The media won’t expose the truth, so many will continue to believe his lies….about the budget, about Benghazi, about….well, you name it, and he’s lied about it. Is it possible that this narcissist is incapable of telling the truth? I seriously wonder.
I realize politicians lie for a living. This is why most people can’t stand them. We want the unvarnished truth, whether we like it or not. Just tell us the truth! We aren’t children, we are capable of making our own decisions about each issue. And we are smart enough to know that this continuous spending spree can NOT be sustained! Well, at least us grown ups do. The low/no information voters, those ‘you owe me’ types, will not care that their children and grandchildren are being deprived of a prosperous future. Self gratification has put us on this road, and it’s way past time to put a stop to this freight train, and switch tracks!
Obama’s Fake Budget Marketing Exposed
Romina Boccia and Amy Payne – The Foundry
President Obama is marketing his new budget by saying it has “more than $2 in spending cuts for every $1 of new revenue.” Is this true?
In a word, no.
In fact, his spending increases and advertised spending cuts cancel each other out—leaving only a massive tax increase.
The President cancels sequestration’s spending cuts—therefore raising spending—by the same amount that he reduces spending. When that’s done, all that’s left is a $1.1 trillion tax hike.
- The President increases spending by $1.1 trillion by cancelling sequestration. Sequestration, the automatic spending cuts adopted in the Budget Control Act of August 2011, is already in effect. Thus, cancelling these reductions in spending increases spending by $1.1 trillion over 10 years.
- The President reduces spending by $1.1 trillion. The President lists a number of additional spending reductions based on a December offer to Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH). These total about $1.1 trillion and are completely offset by the cancellation of sequestration.
- The President raises taxes by $1.1 trillion. The official total tax increase in President Obama’s budget is available in the Treasury Department’s “Green Book.” Treasury scores the total net tax increase from all President Obama’s tax policies at more than $1.1 trillion over 10 years.
So President Obama’s spending cut claim doesn’t hold up, and Americans get stuck with a $1.1 trillion tax bill. Real math hurts.
