An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Did Obama Invite Russia into Crimea?
It’s apparent to anyone with half a brain, that Obama’s idea of a budget isn’t the same as a normal person’s. Ya see, when most people sit down to figure out a budget, they take into account their income, and what funds are available, and figure out what is the most important items to pay for, and what can be left out. Having never lived in the real world, like us peons, he is totally clueless how this works.
Congress has the same problem, with a few exceptions. Shoot, most of them are so rich, living on a budget has never been a problem. Well, out here in the REAL world, it’s a problem, and mostly, it’s thanks to their inability to live within theirs, as our supposed representatives!
Thankfully, I heard Paul Ryan say on the Kelly File last night that this joke of a budget is ‘dead on arrival’ in the House!
…. I don’t do drugs, nor do I drink. I do however, know how to spell, and think logically. Your comments went straight into spam. “r u on crack’ adds nothing to the conversation.
Also, I have no idea what ‘group’ you are referring to, as I am not a member of any group, and if you are, then that is your issue, not mine.
But thanks for stopping by anyway. Hope all is well up there in New York.
A friend of mine gave me a book by Joyce Meyer. Now, to be perfectly honestly, I’m not a big fan of hers, or any televangelist, but since my friend gave it to me, I am reading it. I’ve no doubt she’s a real nice lady, and her message is one of hope, of giving, and of living the life God intended us to live, but there’s just something that rubs me the wrong way with preachers begging for money on the idjit box. Some of them use that money as they intended, helping others in need. Some live lavish lifestyles, which in no way, reflects their words. Soo…. I have issues.
Anyway, I’d like to share the first paragraph of Chapter 3 that struck me like a big stick with you:
None of the revolutions that changed the world happened accidentally. In some cases, they began with just a few people discussing changes that were needed. Whether these history making events were birthed by casual unrest or well-planned revolt, they never just happened. They were deliberate, intentional, passionate, and strategic. They started because someone refused to do nothing; someone refused to simply ‘let thing unfold’; someone refused to be passive and idle while injustice ran rampant. Revolutions happen because someone decides to act.
Now, Mz Meyer’s book isn’t about politics, per se, but much of what I’ve read can be related to our every day lives. The Bible instructs us to ACT! It doesn’t tell us to sit back and watch the world go by; it tells us to get up off our duffs and fix the problems.
Well, we’ve got some serious problems in this country, and the sad thing is, with few exceptions, no one is acting. Oh, they talk, just like I do, but most of us do nothing but talk. Now, to be totally honest, I am incapable of doing much in the way of acting on my convictions. I use to, but alas, time and disease have caught up with me, and as much as I’d love to do SOMETHING, I just can’t. So, I talk..through this blog. Is anyone listening, besides DHS and the NSA? (I honestly have no clue, and in the long run, I suppose it really doesn’t matter. At times, there are things I need to get off my chest, and this is my venue.)
All of us can offer something, but too many don’t, or won’t, expecting someone else to take up the banner, and march for freedom. If all of us expect someone else to do our job, then will that job ever get done? Nope! Everything will continue as it is, and we’ll watch our freedoms be whittled away, bit by bit.
Has anyone studied the 9th Amendment? I did a bit of searching, and found very little concerning this amendment. We know much about the other God given rights, but do we understand that 9th?
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Few people even know what the 9th Amendment says, myself included, until now. I did some studying on this, and did find something interesting.
“…the Ninth Amendment shows a belief of the Constitution’s authors that fundamental rights exist that are not expressly enumerated in the first eight amendments and an intent that the list of rights included there not be deemed exhaustive.” (SC opinion on Griswold v Connecticut 1965)
Simply, this forgotten amendment protects ALL our basic God given rights that are not implicitly included in the Bill of Rights. When citing the Constitution, many often state ‘it’s in the Constitution’, when it most definitely not. For example,that ‘separation of church and state’ nonsense is most definitely NOT in the Constitution. Several of our so called representatives, including the current resident of the White House, have stated that people have a ‘right’ to health care. No where is this implied in that document, not even the 9th Amendment. Health care is not a God given right to be provided by the government. In reality, the Constitution limits what the government can do, and prevents it from overstepping those bounds violates everything on which this nation was founded.
The ‘general welfare clause‘ is limited, mentioned only twice, once in the Preamble, and once in Article 1, Section 8, Clause 1:
“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States….”
Thomas Jefferson, who was one smart cookie, stated:
“[T]he laying of taxes is the power, and the general welfare the purpose for which the power is to be exercised. They [Congress] are not to lay taxes ad libitum for any purpose they please; but only to pay the debts or provide for the welfare of the Union. In like manner, they are not to do anything they please to provide for the general welfare, but only to lay taxes for that purpose.” (The Papers of Thomas Jefferson p. 285, Julian P. Boyd. (1950), “Opinion on the Constitutionality of a National Bank”, Jefferson, Thomas (1791).)
Over the last couple of centuries, a number of court rulings have diluted the power of We, The People, and handed it over to the one entity that was never meant to have it, the federal government. It seems to me that the 9th Amendment was included to prevent such actions. Obviously, I’m no Constitutional scholar, but I do have a wee bit of common sense.
As Mz Meyer stated, revolutions don’t come about by accident, there is always a catalyst. What is our catalyst? Is the huge tax known as Obamacare, destroying our health care system? Is it the ever increasing burdens placed on businesses? Is it the overreach of the federal government into our lives? Is it the targeting of law abiding citizens, denying them their God given right to speak out against injustice? Is it the careless disregard of human life? Will it be the denial by the government to protect ourselves from the evil in this world, and even from them? Just what will be our catalyst? Do we even have one? Or, will we sit back, and watch as our country is destroyed from the inside.
Note: Change a few words, like British for American, etc.
Note to muslims: If you are offended, I don’t give a happy crappy!
You’ll have to excuse me… I’ve had a few of ‘those’ days, and just haven’t felt much up to posting anything. Well, Saturday was a decent day, but we were out, being delegates for our district, and by the time we got home… Nope! Didn’t wanna post a thing! I was tuckered! Granted, it doesn’t take much to get to that tuckered point, but still. :D It looks like we got 3 good candidates for the upcoming election in August. I really like the guy who’s running for district attorney, Matt Stowe. Of course, I liked the two ladies, Karma, running for Chancellor, and Vickie, running for judge. Sadly, I can’t remember their last names, and couldn’t spell one of ‘em if I did remember. The bad thing? Karma has been our lawyer. Heh.
Had a pretty decent meal at a place we have seen many times on our way to Nashville, but it was either closed, or we just wanted get to or from, so had never stopped. Cajun place called Meo Mio’s. Odd place to have a Cajun restaurant, in the middle of nowhere, but what the heck. They had fried gator, that I didn’t notice on the menu until after we had already ordered. sigh… Next time! I like fried gator!
So, apparently, much has been going on while I was ignoring the world, and naturally, none of it all that great, depending on your point of view. Personally, I don’t think having drag shows on military bases is a good idea, but then, I have this thing about the Bible, and what God wants for us, so I’m a bit…well, I suppose biased would be the word. Call me old fashioned, or call me anything ya want, but I believe our military should be made up of manly men. When they pull crap like this, it makes our military look like a joke, and it’s not! Is it any wonder than the U.S. has lost respect around the world? This is another of the Obama administration’s BS agenda policies that hurts America.
Conservatives, like me, are fed up with the Dem Lite branch of the Republican Party, which might be why we refuse to give them a dime. Decent folks don’t compromise their principles, and apparently, the old guard of the party aren’t decent folks, cuz they are constantly compromising with the devil. If we are ever going to turn this country around, we have GOT to boot them out, and replace them with those who will NOT compromise, especially on the really important issues, like smaller government! People like McCain, Alexander…oh hell…too many to name… have GOT TO GO!
Russia invades Crimea, which is part of Ukraine, demands surrender, and we have a pussy in the White House. What could possibly go wrong? I really wonder if what Bush saw when he looked into Putin’s eyes was a black hole?
FYI, I don’t give a damn about the Oscars, so ya won’t find any comments here….other than I don’t give a damn about the Oscars.
You’ll have to excuse me if I must ask….why the hell are the U.S. taxpayers providing ‘pregnancy services’ for criminal invaders? If they want such services, they can go the hell home! Enough with being the ‘good neighbor’. There should be a little tit for tat, but you don’t see other countries bending over backwards to provide aid for Americans who sneak into THEIR countries. Now, we have criminal invaders enrolled in Obamacare? The whole fiasco sucks, and that includes the crappy websites that are about as useless as teats on a boar!
I wonder if algore wants to stop by and tell all those folks that were stuck on a 65 mile stretch of I-45, south of Dallas, that this is all caused by ‘global warming’. Shoot, tell me about it as I look out my window and see snow and ice. This ol broad wasn’t planning on leaving the house anyway! Even rescheduled a doc’s appointment. I ain’t stoopid, y’know!
Is Obama the betrayer spoken of in Isaiah? We know he doesn’t like Jews, or Israel, so it’s quite possible. The clown has made MANY ‘mistakes’, but this? This would be the whopper that condemns the U.S. Note to Israel: Obama does NOT speak for the majority of Americans! He speaks for himself, and his muzzie brotherhood buddies. Note to Obama: Shut the **** up! You are an ignorant piece of crap who has done more damage than Jimmy Carter ever dreamed of!
Of all the cases for the Supreme Court to deny to hear, I figured this would be the last. I often put hope in people that don’t deserve the positions they hold. Then, I must remember, this is the same court that said that the unconstitutional Obamacare IS constitutional. For the SC to side with the criminal Department of (non) Justice in the case of the German home schoolers is appalling! The German law denies them of the God given right to raise their children in the manner God intended. Apparently, the U.S. has followed this destructive path as well.
Did you know our tax dollars, via so called Homeland Security to the tune of $425K a year, are going to an airline, partnered with American Airlines, to allow their passengers to clear through customs more quickly than other folks? Yep. Etihad Airways, owned by United Arab Emirates, get our money. They don’t, however, allow Israeli citizens to fly on their airline. They’ve also removed Israel from their flight maps. Now, I don’t know about you, but I would have to stop all payments to this airline, and sever any association with them, plus, cancel any of their incoming flights. All citizens of Abu Dabai will have to find somewhere else to go…if I had my druthers!
Apparently, the Brits have lost all common sense.
I’ve got things to do. After that last one, I don’t know if I can take much more of the insanity the pervades the entire world! Sheesh!
Ukraine Unrest & Russia
I’m pretty sure that the Judge could have been a bit more strong in her language in describing Obama’s non existent foreign policy. She also could have mentioned that Sarah Palin has been vindicated, and all those libtards who laughed at her owe her an very BIG apology!
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host pitched against me, mine heart should not be afraid: though war be raised against me, I will trust in this.
4 One thing have I desired of the Lord, that I will require, even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to visit his Temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his Tabernacle: in the secret place of his pavilion shall he hide me, and set me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall he lift up mine head above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his Tabernacle sacrifices of joy: I will sing and praise the Lord.
7 Hearken unto my voice, O Lord, when I cry: have mercy also upon me and hear me.
8 When thou saidest, Seek ye my face, mine heart answered unto thee, O Lord, I will seek thy face.
9 Hide not therefore thy face from me, nor cast thy servant away in displeasure: thou hast been my succor, leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 Though my father and my mother should forsake me, yet the Lord will gather me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a right path, because of mine enemies.
12 Give me not unto the lust of mine adversaries: for there are false witnesses risen up against me, and such as speak cruelly.
13 I should have fainted, except I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Hope in the Lord: be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart, and trust in the Lord.
Children, Blacks and Native Americans
Is it any wonder I, along with a WHOLE lot of other folks, are getting disgusted with this administration. And the topper is…. this piece of crap who believes we are all stupid and she knows what’s best, isn’t even a member of the administration. She’s nothing more than a decoration, and a damn unpleasant one at that!
How on earth did moms throughout the centuries ever survive without Michelle Obama!
