An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

FdL man says he’s a werewolf

A Fond du Lac man who claimed he was a werewolf and spoke what sounded like a medieval language has been charged with criminal trespassing, criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.

I think that wolf thing is just a disguise, don’t you? Wolves don’t smoke pot. At least I don’t think they do.  🙂

White Supremacist Gang Gains Clout

Police say the gang has compiled a “hit list” targeting five officers and a gang prosecutor – a sign of just how brazen Public Enemy has become.

I thought they were just some rap group. Evidently not. Much more dangerous.

Support slipping for cervical cancer bill

“If the legislation comes before my committee, it’s not going anywhere,” said Rep. Leah Vukmir, R-Milwaukee, the Assembly health committee chairwoman.

I like that woman! Before everyone gets all bent out of shape, they should really find out what this vaccine actually DOES in the long run. I’m surprised the FDA approved it so fast. Doesn’t it usually take them 20 years, and endless tests?

Day labor sites are hot spots in immigration fight

On one side are U.S. citizens who want to expose and shame employers who hire illegal immigrant workers.

On the other are Mexican diplomats and U.S. advocates who want to ensure that both legal and illegal immigrant workers get a fair shake.

Repeat with me: The word is ILLEGAL! Against the law! Not here legally! Sheesh!

For Rep. Sanchez, a hot-tomato label means a hot potato

At the same time, she was shedding a red St. John Knits suit and shimmying into an ao dai, a traditional Vietnamese tunic and pants, for her next event. Meaning that she was telling a female reporter about her chairmanship of the House Subcommittee on Border, Maritime and Global Counterterrorism while wearing only pants and a black bra.

Is what this woman wears under her clothes important to the story? I don’t care if she is wearing a chastity belt!

Birth control shots for squirrels

A new program that would start this (northern) summer calls for squirrels in Palisades Park to be injected with an immuno-contraceptive vaccine to stunt sexual development.

Santa Monica would be only the second city in the state, besides Berkeley, to try the immunisation program.

Perhaps they should just had out little condoms?

Gov’s plan: All insured in 3 years
Those who don’t get health policy would face fines

Gov. Blagojevich hopes every Illinois resident who lacks health insurance will voluntarily sign up for an affordable plan he announced Sunday.

But anyone who still doesn’t have health insurance after three years would be required to get a policy, Deputy Gov. Sheila Nix said.

First, there is no such thing as “affordable health-care” anymore (thank you sue happy yahoos and lawyers). Second, taxing people who can’t afford it? The guy is smoking crack! We seem to have a bunch of budding little dictatorships.

No U.S. Backup Strategy For Iraq

During a White House meeting last week, a group of governors asked President Bush and Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about their backup plan for Iraq. What would the administration do if its new strategy didn’t work?

The conclusion they took away, the governors later said, was that there is no Plan B. “I’m a Marine,” Pace told them, “and Marines don’t talk about failure. They talk about victory.”

The goal is victory. Why is it so many in this country insist on defeat? Do they hate themselves, and their country, so much they’d rather see our troops fail? BDS!

  1. The Public Enemy you are thinking of is indeed a Rap Group. One of the bigger ones on the nineties who actually used their music to speak up for what they perceived as societal injustice…this Public Enemy is MUCH different. One can only hope they do not become as mainstream
