Stepping Aside

I wanted to take just a couple of minutes of your time to let you know that I have not deserted you or the causes that I feel so strongly about.

I am currently experiencing some health problems.  As soon as possible, I will be back to my antagonistic self writing and yelling at the man who lives in the People’s House to get out of our way so that we can continue living in a nation we almost do not recognize anymore.

Thank you for the notes and messages inquiring after me.  I appreciate your prayers, thoughts and good wishes.  Just hang in there with me – I’ll be back to business soon.

I was sitting at my computer checking up on the news of day when I ran across this neat little article about nobody’s favorite Speaker of the House.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking supporters for contributions to help prevent the “subpoenas and investigations” that would result from a GOP majority.

In a fundraising letter for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Pelosi says if Republicans take back the House, they’ll initiate “endless investigations against President Obama” and “bring back the days of Ken Starr and the politics of personal destruction.”

“Remember a Republican-controlled Congress that devoted more time to subpoenas and investigations than to solving our country’s problems?” Pelosi asks. “There is far too much at stake for our country now to allow it to happen again.”

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, has shown himself willing and eager to be a thorn in the side of the Obama administration on everything from the BP oil spill to the Joe Sestak job offer. Few doubt that he would use a chairmanship to ramp up those efforts.

Now that little tidbit tells me several things.

  1. We’ve got the Democrats running scared, Conservatives!
  2. Nancy-baby must suspect that something needs to be investigated regarding Obama and the totally unethical yet daily drumming of American citizens.
  3. Pelosi knows her days are numbered in the position she currently holds – and perhaps even in the seat she would have to go back to – and that the seat will not be there when she gets there.

Aren’t you asking yourself, “Why would she be planning for the Republicans to achieve a majority after the midterm elections?”  I certainly am.  The answer I keep coming back to is that she is well aware that she personally has pushed the House of Representatives to make, shall we say, unpopular decisions.  She is well aware that her Messiah has lied, cheated and stolen his way into the People’s House, and she has learned her lessons well from his guidance; or lack thereof.

Obviously, she is aware that there are many legal questions that she and the Democrats she is taking down with her will have to answer once they again become “Joe the ex-Congressman.”  I can hardly wait to hear the stuttering and stammering as they try to defend themselves on the Sunday morning talk shows when they don’t have her to back them up.

Nobody who lives in “the real world” even hints that everything Pelosi’s master has done has been legal.  Nor do we pretend that she has played by all the rules.  At least, the rules according to Hoyle – not the rules according to Obama.

Pelosi has no doubt been confronted by some of the Democrat Congressmen she thought she has on a short leash.  She knows that they have intentions of degrading her position within the caucus after the elections in November.  I suspect she is even aware that as embarrassing as it would be for her to be voted out of the Speakers job, it will be even more embarrassing when she sees the results of the election in California’s U.S. House District 8.

Have you ever seen the results of a sinking Botoxed-to-the-max face?  I can hardly wait!

Perhaps it is once again time for this video to make the rounds of everyone’s e-mail inbox….

Have you read Michelle Malkin today?  No!??  Get over there right now!

We can now add Tennessee State Democrat legislator Janis Baird Son­tany of Nashville to the roster of abusers. Here’s what she said about her GOP opponents at a Democrat Party breakfast over the weekend:

State Republican Chairman Chris Devaney today denounced as “petty and insulting” a Democratic legislator’s statement about her Republican women colleagues.

“You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote,” said Rep. Janis Baird Sontany, D-Nashville.

The remark at a Saturday Democratic breakfast was initially reported by blogger Dru Smith Fuller. Sontany acknowledged the statement when asked and described it as “a glib, off-the-cuff remark” that “was inappropriate on my part.”

Okay, Democrats everywhere.  Let’s get this straight.

Democratic Women

And I picked Republican women who are not necessarily that well known.  I would say there is quite a difference.

Ms. Sontany, you want to lift a skirt?  May I suggest Sarah Palin’s skirt?  Ever heard of drawing back a nub?

Go for it, Ms. Sontany.  But call me first.  I want to watch you get punched in the….

Oh.. I forgot one Democrat…

I love to read.  I always have and hope I always will.  I have suddenly become a political reader; why not?  After what the nation did to us in the last election, I think it is past time that many of us read more politically-minded literature.
That includes blogs.  My personal reading list (which I try to get to every day and do not always succeed) is listed on the front page on the right side bar of this site.  You may have noticed a new link there within the last few days.

I would like to take this opportunity to say welcome to Kimberly Moore and her new blog, Random Pundits.  I do not know if she will be writing only about political issues, but I can hardly wait to find out.  Here is just a sample of her writing style which I find refreshing and interesting to read.

Apparently someone from the Rand Paul camp thought the interview didn’t quite go so well and decided to publish a Press Release to save face.  We’ll see if his press release redeems Rand from a very questionable position on where he stands regarding civil rights.

Here is the press release regarding his most recent interview with Rachel Maddow:

Dr. Rand Paul today released the following statement:

“I believe we should work to end all racism in American society and staunchly defend the inherent rights of every person. I have clearly stated in prior interviews that I abhor racial discrimination and would have worked to end segregation. Even though this matter was settled when I was 2, and no serious people are seeking to revisit it except to score cheap political points, I unequivocally state that I will not support any efforts to repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

“Let me be clear: I support the Civil Rights Act because I overwhelmingly agree with the intent of the legislation, which was to stop discrimination in the public sphere and halt the abhorrent practice of segregation and Jim Crow laws.

“As I have said in previous statements, sections of the Civil Rights Act were debated on Constitutional grounds when the legislation was passed. Those issues have been settled by federal courts in the intervening years.

“My opponent’s statement on MSNBC Wednesday that I favor repeal of the Civil Rights Act was irresponsible and knowingly false. I hope he will correct the record and retract his claims.

“The issue of civil rights is one with a tortured history in this country. We have made great strides, but there is still work to be done to ensure the great promise of Liberty is granted to all Americans.

“This much is clear: The federal government has far overreached in its power grabs. Just look at the recent national healthcare schemes, which my opponent supports. The federal government, for the first time ever, is mandating that individuals purchase a product. The federal government is out of control, and those who love liberty and value individual and state’s rights must stand up to it.

“These attacks prove one thing for certain: the liberal establishment is desperate to keep leaders like me out of office, and we are sure to hear more wild, dishonest smears during this campaign.”

Based on this interview and his press release, do you think Rand Paul is racist and discriminatory or do you think that Rachel Maddow set him up and he had no choice but to release his statement?

You can see the video and read this article in its entirety right here.

Ms. Moore is a speaker on Conservative Republican issues.  If you live in Kentucky, you might go to the Woodford Country Republican Dinner and Rally on May 22 to meet her personally and hear some more of her ideas.

Welcome, Kimberly and Random Pundits!

By the time you are my age, ladies, the chances are pretty good that you have changed the sheets on your bed a minimum of 2235 beds.  I said YOUR bed – this number doesn’t include one or two guestrooms, toddlers’ beds, beds for teens who are late for school not to mention crib sheets, sofa beds, and pallets on the floor.  If you’re not from the South, you may not know what a pallet is.  Too bad.

I am so tired of folding fitted sheets.  Oh, don’t misunderstand – they are a blessing.  Fitted sheets are the sole reason it takes less than five minutes to make your bed in the morning.  Eventually, though, they have to be laundered, and that means that once dry, they have to be folded.

Yesterday was “sheet changing” day at my house.  Do you have any idea how happy I am that I live alone and have only one bed!  If you are a regular reader, you know that I have scoliosis.  That makes even the simple things more difficult for me.  The situation is exacerbated by the fact that osteoarthritis is a resident (it just moved in and took over) in my bones including the crooked one in my back.

After yesterday’s experience with my fitted sheet, I have decided that there must be an easier way to do this.  No, I am not going to describe it to you because I have no idea how I ended up falling on my bed with one foot in the fitted corner of my sheet.  I will, therefore leave you with my final reaction…

PROTEST AGAINST THE OBAMA PUSH AGAINST ISRAEL – SUNDAY, APRIL 25 – 1 PM – NYC

[picapp align=”none” wrap=”false” link=”term=israel+flag&iid=4839197″ src=”e/1/2/1/Israelis_Celebrate_Jerusalem_bbda.jpg?adImageId=12622649&imageId=4839197″ width=”500″ height=”333″ /]


THOUSANDS TO GATHER AGAINST OBAMA’S PUSH AGAINST ISRAEL

– RABBIS, JEWISH LEADERS TO JOIN THOUSANDS OUTSIDE ISRAELI CONSULATE
THIS SUNDAY –

APRIL 19, 2010, NEW YORK, NY, ­ Thousands of American Jews are expected to gather this Sunday at 1 PM outside of the Israeli Consulate, located at 800 Second Avenue (42nd Street & 2nd Avenue), New York City, to protest President Barack Obama’s scapegoating of Israel and his increasingly hostile anti-Israel proposals, and actions.  Numerous rabbis and heads of Jewish organizations will also be present.

“We are outraged that President Obama is scapegoating Israel and wants to expel Jews from their homes in Jerusalem. President Obama and Secretary Hillary Clinton show more anger about a Jewish family building a home in Jerusalem than Iran building a nuclear bomb,” states Beth Gilinsky of the Jewish Action Alliance. “Vast segments of the Jewish community will not tolerate the President’s continuing attacks on Israel. Grassroots Jewry will not be silent.”

Protesters will raise large signs that read: “Jerusalem: Israel’s United and Eternal Capital,”  “Hillary Clinton: Pressure Iran, Not Israel!”, “Obama: Stand up for America, Stop Bowing to Saudi Kings!”, and “Obama: Jews Will Not Be Silent.”

A taped statement by former NYC Mayor Ed Koch, who has vigorously expressed his shock and displeasure with President Obama’s hostility toward Israel, will be played to attendees.

The rally is being sponsored by the Jewish Action Alliance, an organization well known for activism and speaking out on issues of Jewish security.  The event will be MC’d by radio talk show host Steve Malzberg and columnist Rabbi Aryeh Spero.  It is endorsed by AISH Center, Americans for a Safe Israel, Artists 4 Israel, Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, Christians and Jews United for Israel, Coalition for Israel, Crown Heights Women for the Security and
Integrity of Israel; Dr. Joseph Frager, Jerusalem Reclamation Project; Assemblyman Dov Hikind; IsraelAlive; Israel Day Concert in the Park; Jewish Political Education Foundation; Dr. Michael Ledeen of Center for Defense of Democracies; Unity Coalition for Israel; Dr. Herbert
London of The Hudson Institute; AMCHA, Coalition for Jewish Concerns; Stand With Us; Endowment for Middle East Truth; World Committee for the Land of Israel; Zionist Organization of America; Z Street; and many other Jewish, Christian and Hindu groups.

CONTACT: RONN TOROSSIAN, 212-999-5585, ronn@5wpr.com
Please feel free to pass this information along to everyone that loves Israel !

Take a walk with me down memory lane.  Of course, if you are under 50, you will not remember any of this.  That, my friend, is your loss.

Long ago and far away, in a land that time forgot,
Before the days of Dylan, or the dawn of Camelot.
There lived a race of innocents, and they were you and me,

For Ike was in the White House in that land where we were born,
Where navels were for oranges, and Peyton Place was porn.

We learned to gut a muffler; we washed our hair at dawn.
We spread our crinolines to dry in circles on the lawn..
We longed for love and romance, and waited for our Prince,
And Eddie Fisher married Liz, and no one’s seen him since.

We danced to ‘Little Darlin,’ and sang to ‘Stagger Lee ‘

And cried for Buddy Holly in the Land That Made Me, Me.

Only girls wore earrings then, and 3 was one too many,

And only boys wore flat-top cuts, except for Jean McKinney.

And only in our wildest dreams did we expect to see
A boy named George with Lipstick, in the Land That Made Me, Me.

We fell for Frankie Avalon, Annette was oh, so nice,
And when they made a movie, they never made it twice.

We didn’t have a Star Trek Five, or Psycho Two and Three,
Or Rocky-Rambo Twenty in the Land That Made Me, Me.

Miss Kitty had a heart of gold, and Chester had a limp,
And Reagan was a Democrat whose co-star was a chimp.

We had a Mr. Wizard, but not a Mr.  T,

And Oprah couldn’t talk yet, in the Land That Made Me, Me.

We had our share of heroes, we never thought they’d go,At least not Bobby Darin, or Marilyn Monroe.
For youth was still eternal, and life was yet to be,
And Elvis was forever in the Land That Made Me, Me.

We’d never seen the rock band that was Grateful to be Dead,
And Airplanes weren’t named Jefferson, and Zeppelins were not Led.

And Beatles lived in gardens then, and Monkees lived in trees,

Madonna was Mary in the Land That Made Me, Me.

We’d never heard of microwaves, or telephones in cars,
And babies might be bottle-fed, but they were not grown in jars.

And pumping iron got wrinkles out, and ‘gay’ meant fancy-free,
And dorms were never co-ed in the Land That Made Me, Me.

We hadn’t seen enough of jets to talk about the lag,

And microchips were what was left at the bottom of the bag.
And hardware was a box of nails, and bytes came from a flea,
And rocket ships were fiction in the Land That Made Me, Me.

Buicks came with portholes, and side shows came with freaks,
And bathing suits came big enough to cover both your cheeks.


And Coke came just in bottles, and skirts below the knee,
And Castro came to power near the Land That Made Me, Me.

We had no Crest with Fluoride,We had no Hill Street Blues,

We  had no patterned pantyhose or Lipton herbal tea
Or  prime-time ads for those dysfunctions in  the Land That Made Me, Me.

There  were no golden arches, no Perrier to  chill,

And  fish were not called Wanda , and cats were not called  Bill.And  middle-aged was 35 and old was  forty-three,
And ancient were our parents in the Land That Made Me, Me.

But  all things have a season, or so we’ve heard them  say,
And now instead of Maybelline we swear by Retin-A.
They send us  invitations to join  AARP,
We’ve come a long way, baby, from the Land That Made Me,  Me.

So  now we face a brave new world in slightly larger jeans,
And wonder why  they’re using smaller print in magazines.
And we tell our children’s children of the way it used to be,
Long ago and far away in the Land That Made Me, Me.
