An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

Militiamen return to Sadr City

Shi’ite militiamen, who melted away from Baghdad when U.S. and Iraqi troops began their security crackdown seven weeks ago, are rolling back into the city with fresh Iranian training, Iraqi and other officials said.

I guess they got the word that the Dems (Dhimmis) are on their side.

Iran TV Channel Airs Footage of British Sailor’s ‘Apology’ for Entering ‘Iranian Waters’

British Prime Minister Tony Blair immediately denounced the broadcast and said it would only lead to further isolation for Iran.

“I don’t know why the Iranian regime keeps doing this, all it does it heightens people’s sense of disgust. Captured personel being paraded and manipulated in this way, it doesn’t fool anyone,” he said in a brief statement. “And what the Iranians have to realize is that if they continue in this way they will face continued isolation.”

I rather like Owen’s explanation of why Iran is putting on this show. (Personally, I think it’s time we start drilling and building refineries. Why should we be dependent on tin pot dictators?) Just because Great Britain is in Europe does not mean they are like the French, and will bow down to Maamoul‘s wishes.

Sales tax deduction in peril
Tax break left out of House budget

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Brentwood, said not extending the tax cuts passed when Republicans controlled Congress would create a $392.5 billion tax hike over the next five years.

“Baseball season is right around the corner, and the ‘Hold Onto Your Wallet Congress’ decided to go for a home run right out of the gate,” Blackburn said in a written statement.

Just peachy! So much for a good economy. I guess the Dems just can’t figure out if we get to keep more of our own money, we tend to spend. When we spend, jobs are created. When jobs are created, that creates more revenue in taxes collected. SHEESH!

Wind farm work to start in summer

Construction of the project in the towns of Calumet and Marshfield is expected to begin in summer 2007 and will take about one year to complete, according to a We Energies press release. Six months will be needed for site preparation and the installation of turbine foundations and cabling. An additional six months will be required for turbine erection, assembly and commissioning.

It’s about bloomin’ time!

2nd Day of Clashes in Somali Capital

Government soldiers and troops from neighboring Ethiopia, who are in Somalia to protect the fragile government, were under a severe attack for a second day as they tried to quash a growing insurgency by Islamic militants.

Kind of hard to imagine a “religion of peace” when all they do is destroy.

Cline: I’d like to take a swing at cop in video

“We stripped him of his police powers. He’s been charged criminally, and we’re moving to fire him, and if I could hit him with a baseball bat, I would. But I can’t, so I mean we’ve done everything we can to take the right action against him,” Cline said Thursday on the Roe Conn Show on WLS 890-AM.

Go ahead! I won’t tell.


Rudy Giuliani says in a new interview that he hopes his wife, Judith, will sit in on some Cabinet meetings if he captures the White House.

All I can envision is a repeat of Hillary in the 90’s Clinton White House. Not a good vision either.



  1. This blog delivers what it promises. I’m so glad I have the option of visiting this page when I want and not listen to you go on and on everytime you pour a cup of coffee at the local diner.

  4. Your tax blurb was interesting. Every time I see this I am reminded of the fact that no great civilization has ever taxed its way to prosperity. But the libtards don’t get that.
