An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
So, I get the headline….
…then POOF! It vanishes, to be replaced by crazy North Koreans, all decked out in their fancy uniforms, bayonets attached. Lucky for me, I got enough sleep last night, I was able to find the story, from the UK Mail Online no less. Now you DON’T think Obama would allow his minions in the media to tell the truth about this, do you?
The number of Americans living in poverty has spiked to levels not seen since the mid 1960s, classing 20 per cent of the country’s children as poor.
Now, I gotta tell ya, this first paragraph really chaps my hide. Using children? Again? Children don’t have anything to do with the poverty, they are not the ones in poverty, it’s their parents, or caretakers, not the children themselves. Yes, the children do suffer because of Obama’s poverty pimping, but it’s the parents who are responsible for the children, not the government. I really wish they’d get this straight. Kids aren’t able to get jobs, unless they live in Bangladesh or some such place, not in the U.S.
It comes at a time when government spending cuts of $85 billion have kicked in after feuding Democrats and Republicans failed to agree on a better plan for addressing the national deficit.
I wonder why everyone fails to mention that the sequestration was Obama’s idea, and the Republicans called his bluff? Hmmmm… And yes, because it’s SO much more important for the Obamas to take their lavish vacations, investigate the sex life and penis size of New Zealand snails, studying algae in the Hawaiian Islands, and the list goes on and on, ad nauseam. do we really need to fund a robotic squirrel? I mean seriously? While our military is no longer being fed breakfast, Congress has no problem funding some of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard of in my life. Oh wait, there was that item when I was a kid in the paper I asked my dad about….”why do we need to find out why salmon swim upstream?” “Hon”, he said, “I have NO idea. That’s just what government does. It wastes our money, for no good reason.” Well, that short conversation taught me a lot. Nothing has changed since then. And THAT was in the 60s.
The cuts will directly affect 50 million Americans living below the poverty income line and reduce their chances of finding work and a better life.
Here’s a thought! How about we put congress on a budget, allow them to only introduce bills affecting ONE item at a time. Absolutely NO amendments that have nothing to do with issue at hand! I mean, wouldn’t that make more sense than for some yahoo in Podunk Michigan to add some ridiculous spending request for a rubber band museum to the all important, and only reason, for Congress to actually exist, the security of the United States of America? It’s too logical, I know. I’m just a foolish ol’ broad who has had to budget household for many years. I know you can’t spend more money than you earn, but then, I’m dealing with my own money. If I was dealing with someone else’s money, I think I would be even more cautious, but that’s just me.
As you read on in the article, you’ll see that it was private charities that did the most to aid people out of poverty, NOT the federal government, even though there are some federally funding involved, which there shouldn’t be at all. A charity is something people give to from their heart. I don’t think there are too many folks who give to the government from the heart. More like they are being robbed blind to fund a government that is tampering into areas they have no business being in!
Since Obama has taken office, this second time around, it’s my understanding the he signs into being an average 67 regulations a day. I might be off a bit, but not by much. Regulations that are putting businesses, well, out of of business. These are mostly small businesses that cannot afford the new regulations, and those self same businesses that employee a large majority of the American people. Now, tell me, if you have a 100 businesses, with an average of 25 employees, and they all have to shut down thanks to the ever increasing absurd regulations, that’s about 2500 people now out of work. Multiply that by thousands, all across the country, and yes, you are going to have families torn apart due to lack of funds to pay their bills, going on food stamps and whatever aid they can get.
The U.S. Census Bureau puts the number of Americans in poverty at levels not seen since the mid-1960s when President Lyndon B. Johnson launched the federal government’s so-called War on Poverty.
And so, it began. The Democrats supposedly wanted to life people OUT of poverty, when all they did was drive more in to it, on a regular basis, tearing apart the family unit. The number of out of wedlock births have sky rocketed, increasing the chance that those children will continue the cycle of poverty. In a 2010 study, that found that 29 percent of white children are born to unmarried women, 53 percent of Latinos and 73 percent of black children. Who has the highest unemployment rate in this country right now? I don’t think I need to tell you, you’ve heard it enough. In the urban cities, majority black, and majority run by Democrats, the number of unemployed is astronomical, by anyone’s definition. Why? Well, the policies of the poverty pimps, keep those folks on the plantation so they’ll keep voting for them, thinking they’ll get something for nothing, but that nothing is their self respect, and a lack of compassion for their fellow humans, failing education system, that teaches lies to the kids, convincing them they are owed something, and the churches are the biggest failures in these areas.
The answer to the problem? Well, it’s real simple. First, you get the government out of the way. Second, you put the federal government on a spending diet. The purpose of the federal government is laid out quite clearly in the U.S. Constitution. Anything past that, is unconstitutional. For way too long, our supposed representatives have been using that sacred document to wipe their collective hind ends. THIS MUST STOP….NOW!! Repeal all the absurd regulations that Obama and minions have placed on businesses. Safety, yes, paperwork, NO! KILL that damn ObamaCare crap, which is one of the biggest hindrances to small businesses, you know the ones that do most of the hiring. Get the government out of education! PERIOD! No ifs, and or buts! Removed government from the charity business. That also, is NOT their job. Before Johnson stuck his nose in, and decided the way to get blacks to vote Democrat, black families had problems yes, much discrimination going on, but they were better off than they are by today’s financial, and social, standards.
In order for anything to be accomplished, we must first remove the career politicians, on BOTH sides of the aisle! It will be a long road back to prosperity, but it CAN be done. And for the love of all that’s holy, we are NOT all equal! Some have talents that others don’t but we ALL have, or HAD, the equal opportunity to succeed, or fail, on our own merits. Some will succeed, some will not, but if the opportunity is there, and YOU don’t take it, it’s your own damn fault! And for the love of Pete, kill that damn political correctness crap! It’s destroying this nation in ways even I can’t imagine!
Let’s face a hard cold truth! The POTUS lies….a LOT! Congress lies….a LOT! And sadly, way too many buy into their lies, and the media aids in their lies. It’s way past time to return to the intent of citizen legislators. Serve your term, and go your ass back home to a REAL job and the REAL world!
Jimmy Kimmel did some on-the-street interviews on Hollywood Blvd. with people about the “Sequester.”
These aren’t low-information voters; they are no-information voters. They are clueless. They vote in terms of race, feelings, and what other people are telling them. Actually, it’s worse.
The most frightening part of what you’ll see in this three-minute video is how they go on even after admitting that they don’t know anything about what the Sequester is.
One day these people will have children. The gene pool is beginning to grow algae.
And they call US racist? Riiiiight! I’m thinking there ought to be a litmus test to vote!
Just when ya think no more stupidity can fall out of Shelia Jackson Lee’s mouth…there she goes! Proving to the world just how ill informed she truly is. Of course, those people who continue to vote for her are what has been pegged as low information voters. Perhaps it’s time someone educated them, so we’d no longer have to hear her racist screed? Wouldn’t that be nice?
A little history for Mzzzzzzzzzzzzz Lee. Lincoln was a Republican. Slave owners were Democrats. Many Democrats left Congress and went with their home states after they seceded. Every black elected to any body, federal, state, or local, level, were all Republicans. No, Mzzzzzzzz Lee. You are NOT a freed slave. You are still living on your massa’s plantation!
As former CIA Director David Petraeus revealed new discrepancies Friday in the administration’s story over Libya, a dozen female House Democrats suggested Republicans’ criticism of U.N. ambassador Susan Rice over her Libya comments is instead rooted in sexism and racism.
“It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities,” Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the next chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told reporters Friday at a Capitol Hill news conference.
Would you ignorant broads PLEASE grow the hell up!! No one gives a flying flip the color or gender of a liar. It is NOT sexism, or racism…your favorite word that has lost a great deal of meaning from the overuse….to criticize a person who goes out, as a representative of THIS administration, and repeats the same false information, over and over and over and over and over. No one is ‘picking on’ anyone. Throw your race card away, stop playing the victim and behave like grown ups! If you want to be a Congress critter…pull your big girl panties up and stop behaving like poor helpless children! You can’t have it both ways, ya hypocrites! All this BS coming from the biggest racists and sexists…..the DEMOCRATS!
The lawmakers escalated their defense of Rice after President Obama earlier in the week devoted part of his post-election press conference to challenging Rice’s critics.
Republicans, though, have stood by their concerns about Rice — continuing to question her repeated claim on Sept. 16 that the Libya attack was a “spontaneous” act tied to an anti-Islam film. Petraeus testified Friday that his agency originally pointed to “Al Qaeda involvement” — and according to Republican Rep. Peter King, that reference was somehow taken out by the time Rice discussed the issue on Sept. 16.
So, Obama says to come after him after the criticism of Rice? Ok…we can do that! Mr Obama, you are fired for being an incompetent boob! Who changed the wording of the statement from the CIA? If Rice got her talking points from YOU, then you are accountable for the BS she spread over all the Sunday morning blab fests. If she got her talking points from anyone in your administration, YOU are still responsible. All that continuous blaming the murders of four Americans on a YouTube video makes you look even MORE incompetent, since you KNEW that video had NOTHING to do with the attacks on our citizens.
Oh…but they are just bumps in the road. Silly me. I forgot! Your outrage is reserved for the criticism of a poor helpless female. If she is so helpless, then why the hell is she in the ambassador to the U.N.?? We don’t need wusses in any position of power. But then, we’re stuck with YOU, the biggest wimp of them all parading around as a phony POTUS, so I guess it’s the norm to have panty wetters.
Yep, I’m pretty disgusted with the selective outrage.
It might be wise for the Secret Service, FBI, or whoever to do a wee bit of investigating. While I’m sure some of these….people….are just mad because someone told them if Romney is elected, he is going to take away all their food stamps, which, of course, is a blatant lie. (Here’s a thought….if Romney is elected, perhaps those people would have jobs, and could buy their own food, with money THEY made, instead of relying on the government to take money from those who do work, and give it to those who aren’t. Just a thought.) However, I’ve no doubt there are some who are dead serious, and will make an attempt on his life. Why? Because he’s not The ONE? Because he’s white? Isn’t that racist? You might need a translator with some of the comments. English apparently is not a first language with quite a few.
For whatever reason these threats have been made, they HAVE been made. If the right made such threats on a regular basis, as does the left, I am pretty sure there would be a whole lot more people behind bars.
Tell me again…just who is it that is guilty of racism, violence, and hate speech?
Civil rights attorney George Barrett Wednesday filed an appeal to the Tennessee Court of Appeals of a recent state court decision that found Tennessee’s voter identification law to be constitutional.
His application for emergency appeal asks state officials to remove government-issued photo ID as a voting requirement in the November election.
The appeal requests a hearing no later than Oct. 12. Tennessee’s early voting starts Oct. 17.
Barrett has been at war for months with state officials over the state’s voter ID law, which took effect this year. He has called the law “an unconstitutional impediment on the right to vote.”
Isn’t it interesting that the only people who object to a photo ID to use the most precious gift we have as Americans, the right to vote, are the same ones that insisted on photo ID at their convention? These are the same liars who encourage criminals to invade our country, who cheat and steal to get what they want, and to hell with the rest of us. We don’t matter. It’s their ability to cheat to retain THEIR power that matters.
This is not a civil rights issue! Why some overpriced civil rights lawyers has poked his nose in is beyond me. There are quite a number of areas where you NEED a photo ID. Here are just a few:
Apply for welfare
Apply for food stamps
Cash a check
Purchase a firearm
Make any large credit card purchase
Open a bank account
Rent an apartment
Be admitted to a hospital
Get a marriage license
Get a library card
Buy an airline ticket
Get on the plane
Rent a video
Pawn any item
And that’s just for starters. How is that discriminatory? I guess since voting is more important that buying groceries, it’s ok to cheat, and have those not allowed to vote under the U.S. Constitution? They’re even giving out FREE photo IDs, so what the blazes is the problem? If so many minorities are going to be “disenfranchised”, then why are so many minorities driving cars? Buying liquor, renting apartments, just like the rest of the population?
Nope…this isn’t about disenfranchising anyone but those who are NOT legally allowed to vote. And I have NO problem with that whatsoever! I am sick of the fraud perpetrated on the American people, no matter which party is responsible. The fact that the Democrats have become experts at this kind of fraud says a LOT about their moral compass!
Liberals can’t break 200-year racism habit
by Ann Coulter
Democrats spent the first century of this country’s existence refusing to treat black people like human beings, and the second refusing to treat them like adults.
After fighting the Civil War to continue enslaving black people and then subjecting newly freed black Americans to vicious, humiliating Jim Crow laws and Ku Klux Klan violence, Democrats set about frantically rewriting their own ugly history.
Step 1: Switch “Democrat” to “Southerner”;
Step 2: Switch “Southerner” to “conservative Democrat”;
Step 3: Switch “conservative Democrat” to “conservative.”
Contrary to liberal folklore, the Democratic segregationists were not all Southern — and they were certainly not conservative. They were dyed-in-the-wool liberal Democrats on all the litmus-test issues of their day.
All but one remained liberal Democrats until the day they died. That’s the only one you’ve ever heard of: Strom Thurmond.
As soon as abortion is relegated to the same trash heap of history as slavery has been, liberals will be rewriting history to make Democrats the pro-lifers and Republicans the pro-choicers. That’s precisely what they’ve done with the history of race in America.
A continuation of his previous video.
Hear Why Russell Simmons is the Worst of the 1%
….and Thulsa Doom, and Calls Tea Party Racist
Negroes with guns
by Ann Coulter
Liberals have leapt on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida to push for the repeal of “stand your ground” laws and to demand tighter gun control. (MSNBC’S Karen Finney blamed “the same people who stymied gun regulation at every point.”)
This would be like demanding more funding for the General Services Administration after seeing how its employees blew taxpayer money on a party weekend in Las Vegas.
We don’t know the facts yet, but let’s assume the conclusion MSNBC is leaping to is accurate: George Zimmerman stalked a small black child and murdered him in cold blood, just because he was black.
If that were true, every black person in America should get a gun and join the National Rifle Association, America’s oldest and most august civil rights organization.
Apparently this has occurred to no one because our excellent public education system ensures that no American under the age of 60 has the slightest notion of this country’s history.
Gun control laws were originally promulgated by Democrats to keep guns out of the hands of blacks. This allowed the Democratic policy of slavery to proceed with fewer bumps and, after the Civil War, allowed the Democratic Ku Klux Klan to menace and murder black Americans with little resistance.
(Contrary to what illiterates believe, the KKK was an outgrowth of the Democratic Party, with overlapping membership rolls. The Klan was to the Democrats what the American Civil Liberties Union is today: Not every Democrat is an ACLU’er, but every ACLU’er is a Democrat. Same with the Klan.)
These libtards seriously PISS ME OFF! I’m so bloomin’ sick of their hypocrisy! They can threaten the lives of presumed innocents, and what do we get? Silence! But let one conservative make an off the cuff remark, and all hell breaks loose! Vipers! The lot of ‘em! We’ve been insulted, demeaned, and threatened, but that’s ok. The 1st Amendment only applies to the mentally deranged commies! Ignorant bastards!
In typical Democrat fashion, any ability to fight voter fraud is being blocked. This is nothing new for them, it’s been going on quite a while. The latest target in the corrupt Democrat machine of Barack Obama and Eric Holder is Texas. There are people here in Texas who are just as fed up as those in the rest of the country with the constant blatant racism of this Attorney General and his minions.
Demonstrating the need for Texas’s law, a Texas-based group called True the Vote has found many instances of the very voter registration irregularities that Voter ID is designed to prevent from turning into fraudulent votes, and thus to shield our elections from some of the easiest to perpetrate forms of corruption. They found particular problems in the Houston-area district of Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee who, as usual, cried “racist!”
I know it’s not funny, but I can only chuckle when I hear Shelia Jackson Lee spouting her ‘racist’ line. Doesn’t matter what it is about, that’s her battle cry, and too many follow along blindly. What is racist is the obvious fraud that has been perpetrated on the American people, of all colors, by the Democrat Party. This isn’t new. Since the days of Reconstruction, the Democrats have been targeting white AND black Americans. Their history is steeped in racism and violence.
Don’t believe me? Go to the National Black Republican Association website, read for yourself. Educate yourself on the REAL history, and who it has been, closing in on 2 centuries, that has fought any progress for black Americans. Talk to people like Alfonzo Rachel, Stacy Swimp, and Lloyd Marcus. Learn from Thomas Sowell, Frantz Kebreau, Kevin Jackson, Starr Parker and many more. Listen to Representatives Allen West and Tim Scott.
Ya just gotta love those Dems who equate voter ID with ‘bringing back Jim Crow‘. (My goodness, that’s one extremely ignorant woman! Y’all should be embarrassed!) Well, they should know better, since it was the DEMOCRATS who enacted those laws. But even they are willfully ignorant of their own history. Or perhaps they choose to keep their followers blindly in the dark? Apparently, it’s another one of those important tidbits that is being left out of our public school system. Why would the Democrats, and their ‘strong armed unions’ want our kids to learn the REAL history of the country?
