An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

FdL woman admits to string of gas drive-offs

The woman admitted to Police Department detectives on Tuesday that she was responsible for the drive-offs and that she removed her front license plate before going to the gas stations, according to a press release.

Since the whole area had seen her picture, it would be kind of hard for her to deny it, doncha think?

Study: CPR Would Be Better Without Mouth-to-Mouth

Twice as many heart attack victims would live if they received only chest compressions — and not mouth-to-mouth ventilation — because people fear contracting infectious disease during CPR, a new study from Japan says.

This is a good thing to know. I’ve never had to use CPR, luckily, and I sure don’t have a germ phobia, but it seems to me, I might do a better job if I didn’t have to do the count and breath thing. I think it’s the “walking and chewing gum” problem.

Troop surge will get job done in Iraq, Franks says

Army Gen. Tommy Franks, former commander in Afghanistan and Iraq, said he believes President Bush’s troop surge will yield positive results.

“One never has a guarantee — wars have a way of providing uncertainty,” said Franks, speaking to reporters Thursday before the 2007 Boy Scout Patron Luncheon.

It would also help if the “destroy Bush at all costs” bunch would zip their lips now and then too. They are doing nothing more than encouraging the bad guys and dividing our country.

New on eBay: The desks of Enron execs

The desks that once adorned the Enron offices of Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling can now be yours at not-quite-yard-sale prices — a minimum of $25,000 each.

But judging by the company’s fate, they didn’t get much use.

I need a new desk. 🙂 Think Mr. Ol’ Broad would spring for a piece of ugly history? LMAO Naw… I kind of doubt it. Besides, I know where I can find one MUCH nicer with a MUCH smaller price tag. 🙂

Senate Rejects Democrats’ Call to Pull Troops

The Senate on Thursday rejected a Democratic resolution to withdraw most American combat troops from Iraq in 2008, but a similar measure advanced in the House, and Democratic leaders vowed to keep challenging President Bush to change course in Iraq.

I’m starting to wonder if any other business is being taken care of in D.C. while the Dems are obsessing on defeat.

Cops in new blitz on cannabis factories

POLICE have shut down seven cannabis factories and seized more than 2000 plants following a series of raids in the west of Scotland.

The plants, with an estimated street value of more than £630,000, were grown under high-powered lamps at homes in the greater Glasgow area.

I guess some Scots will have to find another way to get stupid for a while.

U.S. attack on British forces in Iraq called criminal

“The attack on the convoy amounted to an assault,” Walker said. “It was unlawful because there was no lawful reason for it, and in that respect it was criminal.”

Walker said, “I don’t think this was a case of honest mistake. There is no evidence the pilots were acting in self-defense.”

I don’t honestly think the U.S. pilots target British soldiers intentionally. Yes, it WAS a mistake, a horrible one, but criminal? No, I don’t think so.



  1. “I guess some Scots will have to find another way to get stupid for a while.”

    And others will need to find a new way to ease the nausea from cancer chemotherapy, which can be so intense oral anti-emetics won’t stay down.

  2. Yeah, that is the sucky part. Oddly enough, I’m all for medical marijuana. Problem is, there are too many who have it “prescribed” that don’t need it. They are screwing it up for those who truly do.
