Nobody Rants on a Saturday
I have been really out of it since last Monday, it seems I caught the usual “flu” of the season, and I can tell you the exact moment…I was coming out of the bathroom at my local Wal-Mart, the one that I HATE to shop at but have to due to “lack of competition.” They are the only place that sells certain items…anyway, I had washed my hands, put on anti-bacterial hand lotion, stepped out into the store, and then I heard it: the deadly cough…from a kid. Right there in front of me.
“Oh boy, I’m doomed.” I thought, and sure enough —while going out to pick up the mail in minus 3 below zero a few days later, it didn’t take long for the sore throat to start. And what they are saying is right: the new bugs are oblivious to everything: It didn’t matter what I took from my medicine cabinet, nothing worked. The only thing that worked was daily trips trapped in a steam filled bathroom, thanking god that I had hot water…
And speaking of hot water, I don’t think I ever remember a town’s water supply being contaminated so badly that 300,000 people are told not to touch it, do you? Can you imagine not being able to wash your face, your hair, your teeth, or cook as the poor people of West Virginia? And yet, have you noticed, whole towns can be wiped off the map by tornadoes or floods, or spilled chemical disasters, and what does the media repeat over and over and over?
The latest political scandal…whatever it is. As if, politics are the most important thing in the country. And last week it was Chris Christie’s email. It’s no secret that Chris Christie wants the Republican nomination. He showed that at the last Republican convention down in Florida, when he gave a big speech about himself instead of Mitt Romney. As I remember, he even looked very pissed at Romney that night, probably for not picking him to be his VP. And so everyone remembers Christie gawking over Obama right before the elections, and his obsequious behavior to Obama after that hurt Romney really bad. He knew it, and really didn’t care.
He is vindictive…no doubt about it. He’s as ruthless as they come. I don’t buy this “big heart” he puts on. Bill Clinton was good at that too.
Beware of puppy dog faces.
Nevertheless, Hillary is such a weak candidate, and Chris is about as big as a liberal as she is…they have to get rid of him early. Watch for some more nasty attacks on the big “bully”. Christie’s apology speech was much too long, and that was a stupid political move on his part, but so typical of egotistical politicians..
And speaking of egotistical politicians, since I was in bed last week, I even watched the Obama “promise Zones” speech, and I got something very different from everybody else. What I heard is that Obama is giving money to poor Hispanics and future democratic voters in economic zones (he left out Detroit…why?) where big corporations will be needing future workers, and he is going to make sure kids get government care from birth if necessary. The Promise Zone is early childhood state nanny help. That’s what I heard. Just more of the agenda that Hillary wanted on the plate since she stated it in “It Takes a Village.” Hillary stated in that book that she thinks the state can take care of the babies in the first year.
Don’t believe me? Read it.
Just his week in St. Louis, the last Macy’s North of St. Louis closed down. Eight thousand jobs were lost. The mall it was attached to died in 2009, so it’s a wonder it held on that long. For every ‘job’ created, five are lost.
By the way, did ANYBODY hear how great the retail sales were during Christmas?
I never did.
What kind of idiots base their GDP on how much people spend?
Anyway, the good news is, I did not cough ONCE while typing this! The old cantankerous woman is coming back!
If I seem a little scattered in the next few days, blame it on the Nyquil that isn’t working.
Any home remedies on “how to kick the flu in less than 3 days” would be really appreciated. (It’s now been 6 days, I’m ready.)
Obama’s Red Line
Nobody Knows exactly why Obama came out today to talk about why he is hesitating on rushing into Syria— although he drew a line in the sand when Syria used chemical weapons, the tough guy now claims they don’t know who the chemical weapons belonged to, so he’s not going to jump to conclusions like he did when that white cop tried to arrest his black professor friend.
President Obama said during a press conference Tuesday that the use of chemical weapons in Syria could be a “game changer” in the U.S. response to the conflict, but he made clear his administration first needs more evidence. the rebels have specifically requested antitank weapons and surface-to-air missiles. weapons are falling into the hands of al-Qaeda-linked Islamist militants fighting alongside Syrian opposition forces.
Nobody Knows if he is going to give the Syrian rebels, who are Al-Quada, all the weapons they want, because according to many sources he is already doing it. That’s what Benghazi was about according to many reports. Obama was using Benghazi to transfer weapons to the rebels in Syria Via Turkey.
This way, when we see American weapons in the hands of Al Qaeda he can just say they got those weapons after Benghazi…giving himself protection.
Obama isn’t going up against Putin: He’s not that smart.
The Morning After Pill
Your Obama government wants to let 15- year-olds have sex: It’s okay. “We got your back!”
Today, Plan B One-Step is sold behind pharmacy counters, and buyers must prove they’re 17 or older to buy it without a prescription. Tuesday’s decision by the Food and Drug Administration lowers the age limit and will allow the pill to sit on drugstore shelves next to spermicides or other women’s health products and condoms — but anyone who wants to buy it must prove their age at the cash register.
Makes sense to me.
And speaking of “this doesn’t make sense”
Feminists Gets Attention:
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Students at Carnegie Mellon say it’s freedom of expression, but the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh calls it inappropriate and disrespectful. At an annual art school parade, a female student dressed up as the pope, and was naked from the waist down while she passed out condoms.
Even more, witnesses say the woman had shaved her pubic hair in the shape of a cross.
I would like to know how many witnesses saw this cross, wouldn’t you? I bet Nobody Knows but Nobody Wonders how many of them had a religious experience upon the mere sight?
Gays in Sports
Obama got so excited about a black gay basketball player saying he was gay..that he called him on the phone and immediately the press took the hint and proclaimed that all gays should come out of the closet because jocks are, let’s face it: Not fond of gays.
And one jock got a lot of flak for speaking his mind;.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Tuesday complained about the “tyranny of political correctness” currently holding Americans “hostage.” His comments, posted on his official Twitter account, come as some people are demanding the Redskins change their team name because of its “racist” meaning.
“In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness,” Griffin tweeted.
So far, there are no reports that Obama has called Griffin and praised him on his courage.
I would. Hand me the phone.
Remember Hurricane Sandy?
The Hurricane that pushed a lame-duck President back into office because the Republican New Jersey Governor, (Chris Christie) got Obama to help him push a $60 billion dollars check over to his state, has not been forgotten by the poor people that suffered from it.
Youttube wouldn’t let me transfer the video..but here is Chris moaning about how hard it is to get all that money to the people that need it.Chris Christie
It’s just SO hard to manage that kind of money. (Really. Give it to me, I’ll hand it out.)
Nevertheless, it’s been six months and the poor people up in New York and Jersey are still living without electric, and houses, and almost 200 families are about to be homeless again.
“I think the next six months will be a whole lot better than the previous six, and that’s because we learned from the mistakes of Katrina in how to put this thing together,” Schumer said.
Really? If they learned from Katrina, why didn’t they use what they learned in the first six months?
I would laugh and say, “You gotta love a politician!” but…I can’t. Sorry.
Nobody Knows where all that money will end up, but you can bet, it will not go to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
You have to wonder…how in the world can Chris Christie complain about not getting his Sandy relief? Didn’t he come out, and desert the Republicans right before the election? Didn’t he act like Obama had come to SAVE New Jersey? Didn’t he act as if God himself had landed his chariot on the soil of New Jersey, and assure Chris Christie that he was President, and he came and DID garantee, that there would be no more red tape, Chris Christie was going to get ALL the help he needed. So let it be written…so let it be done.
Where was the ‘help’ Obama promised?
Why isn’t he lashing out at ‘President’ Obama? Why isn’t he mentioning that Obama just passed higher taxes on everyone, and that INCLUDES the people who lost their homes in Sandy?
The few last remaining men and women working for the people, have a problem with signing the Sandy funds, and I can’t blame them.
Republican Representative Darrell Issa had this to say about the spending initiatives in the Hurricane Sandy relief bill:
“Your two senators packed this with pork. They had the opportunity to have a $27 to $30 billion dollar legit relief packages, packed it with pork, then dared us not to vote for it.” This include a $150 million in funding for Alaskan fisheries. The bill would also have reportedly increased spending food insurance, and in $336 million in Amtrak expenses and $2 million in taxpayer funds to repair a room on one of the Smithsonian buildings in Washington D.C.. The publication also reports that the Super Storm Sandy relief legislation also includes $8 million to purchase new vehicles for federal agencies. A total of $4 million for repairs to the Kennedy Space Center were also added to the disaster relief bill.
Really? If the Congress really cared about the American people, they would have immediately passed a bill for Sandy relief, packed with nothing in it, but relief for Sandy victims. Untill there is a bill passed that says they can never load bills with pork, this stuff will happened again and again. Tell me WHY they need money for the Kennedy Space Center when it’s been closed down?
And we all know, they love the fact that they can fill bills with pork, it’s the easiest way for them to get their hands on the money.
So…the DEMOCRATS have released the horrible cry on every single channel:
“THEY ARE MEAN AND VICIOUS AND HURTING THE CHILDREN, and thos poor people! OMG..THE REPUBLICANS!”
And two Republicans, Christ Christie and Peter King are outraged that John Boehner didn’t give them money.
And why should he? One of the reasons Obama got elected was because the second favorite son of the Republican Party deserted them in their hour of need, and yes, it IS politics. Despite what Christie said, he knew exactly what he was doing, and it is all about politics.
John Boehner and Obama both managed to leave Washington without doing much of anything besides helping to destroy America more. Obama gpt money for his rum dealers, his algae subsidies, his Hollywood buddies so he can make more propaganda films, and then he hopped on Air Force One and went back to Hawaii without even signing the bill that everyone “slaved” over. Spending now, $7 million for his vacation.
Boehner went home without calling a vote on Sandy relief.
BUT….the stock market…continues to soar and Nobody Knows why.
Everyone is screaming about the traitorous actions of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie–rolling out the red carpet for the President and pretty much proclaiming him a God. While everyone is afraid that Christie is handing vast amounts of votes to Obama…Nobody finds it too funny.
Has everyone forgotten that politicians…all politicians, use disasters for reelections? It’s the most golden opportunity that they can hope for. Obama could have cared less about New Jersey, he wanted to set his presidential Commander-in-Chief podium down in the middle of the disaster (by the way, some poor sop has to drag that stand and a generator everywhere and set it up) and get Christie’s endorsement.
Christie needed something from Obama, and for that–Obama got his endorsement. It’s that simple. Christie is up for election next year.
Christie is a funny fish…like the republican Mayor Bloomberg, he supports many issues that conservatives abhor…global warming, cap-and-trade, Muslim judges,…and yet, people like Ann Coulter were giddy over the man. Conservatives loved his stance against the teachers unions, but the union leaders themselves had already decided that they didn’t want to honor those big pensions promised. After all, their benefits won’t be touched. Besides, those big pensions would take money away from the Democratic politicians…money sorely needed to keep them in power.
While many believe that Christie’s actions of kissing the ring of the Potus just to save lives…you have to admit that his sorrow is real. No doubt there was some of that in his head…but if you think Christie didn’t also do this for himself…think again.
He was the leading speaker at the Republican Convention, and nothing about his speech, until the last few sentences was about Mitt Romney. Nothing. Most everyone was going…”Huh?”
Christie is less a Rhino, then a future Donkey.
Did that photo-op help any of the people in New Jersey?
Nope. Nobody Thinks the voters will just not bother to show up. Why in the world should they? They have much bigger concerns.
Nobody in the Government is coming to their recue..and they are about to find out just how broken everything really is.
On an ending note: Notice that it was the rich people’s houses that were totaled on the Jersey Shore, and was this also about Obama getting the taxpayers to rebuilt those houses? Was Christie lobbying a broke Federal Government for the rich? Nobody Knows.
And if that’s true, will YOU hear about it?
This week, I almost started with the imperfect, miserably rich and miserable about it, Whitney Houston, who evidently was pretty stoned before she forgot to get out of the bathtub…and then came to find out, today that Whitney’s problems were NOT caused by Bobby Brown, or drugs, but because America is just so homophophic. You see, she was madly in love with a woman named Robyn, (according to THE MAIL) but had to hide her feelings, because if the American homophophic country had found out, they wouldn’t have bought her records.
After all..look what happened to Ellen DeGeneres. (Yeah, my point exactly.)
A “gay” friend had this to say about Whitney and her true love: Robyn: (See picture–Robyn is the blond.)
“When I met them, it was obvious they were madly in love. Their intimacy and affection was so sweet and romantic. They held hands in the back of the car like teenage sweethearts. Clearly more than just friends, they were a gorgeous couple and so happy together. To see their love was infectious and uplifting. I want to see a more tolerant society where people don’t feel the need to marry to deflect rumors of homosexuality, and where they are not driven to self-destruction because of their inability to accept and express their love for a person of the same sex.”
Touching. Whitney HAD to marry Bobby Brown, because of those rotten people in America.
But Whitney is not in our contest this week…the contest is between Ann Coulter’s favorite New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie, and a grieving patriotic father: John Burri. You see, Chris Christie lowered the American flag in honor of Whitney Houton.
This from AP:
John Burri lost a son in Iraq and believes lowering flags to half-staff should be done to commemorate military personnel who gave their lives in service to the United States — not celebrities like Whitney Houston. So John took New Jersey’s flag out, and burned it in his barbeque pit. Army Specialist Eric Burri was a gunner on a Humvee when he was killed in 2005 after an explosive device detonated near his vehicle in Baghdad. Then-Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm ordered flags lowered in his memory.
Nobody Says: Good for John Burri. I don’t think he went far enough. He should have thrown in Chris Christie’s picture too.
Wait…you can burn our honorable flag in this country, but– I’m pretty sure if John had burnt Chris Christie’s picture he would have been picked up by the FBI.
According to the Federal rules for lowing the American flags is this;(Wikipedia)
Flags should never be lowered for recognition of death to celebrities unless they are military.
The flag historically has been lowered on Memorial day, Patriot Day, Pearl Harbor day, Death of a President or former President, vice President, Supreme Court chief justice, speaker of the House of Representatives, member of the Cabinet, governors, Senators, or the resident commissioner of Puerto Rico.
Whitney was none of these.
Chris Christie needs to shore up black votes for himself and Mitt Romney so he said this:
“I am disturbed by people who believe that because her ultimate demise — and we don’t know what is the cause of her death yet — but because of her history of substance abuse that somehow she’s forfeited the good things that she did in her life,” Christie said last week. “I just reject that on a human level.”
Let’s see…that means everyone who has done good things in their life should get the American flag lowered. I can’t wait for mine. According to the governor…we all deserve one.
Here’s one…from some guy in New Jersey: (I’ve left out his online names, but if you want to know the name I have for him..you can’t print it.)
“He probably voted for Bush, I’m glad his son died, it serves him right. This man is a pathetic attention whore. No one in New Jersey gives a fuck about some retard in Wyoming using his dead son to get attention.”
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect contest?
Chris Christie. Let’s hope he’s not governor when he dies. Ann Coulter can keep him. He’s just another politician…makes up his own rules, and would YOU want him running the military..or even as Vice President?
John Burri, has more integrity in his barbeque pit.
