Random Morning Observations


- If you want to see an alleged DWI driver crash into a Dallas Sheriff's car, violently, go here.
- The Today Show has a Q&A with a call girl that is fairly interesting.
- I got a Susan B. Anthony dollar back as change the other day fron a convenience store. I hate the Susan B. Anthony dollar
- The Big 12 Basketball Tournament begins today. Good times. Not good times, however, for my Lady Bears who were upset by the Evil Empire yesterday. But I love this quote from Baylor's coach: "If I wasn't so young in my career, I'd resign tonight." Preach on, sister.
- Over the last week, we've had pretty white college girls murdered in North Carolina and Alabama. Arrests have been made of black guys in both cases. This won't help race relations.
- For all you knuckleheads that think that one snowstorm absolutely disproves global warming, does the death of 12 soldiers in 3 days in Iraq mean The Surge is not working?
- I think Geraldine Ferraro got a raw deal. But I appreciate how she didn't back down (despite resigning.}
- I'm now reading The Bush Tragedy.
- I got stopped in Decatur yesterday by a guy I represented in a court case as a court appointment a few years back. I managed to get him probation for meth but he told me he screwed it up and ended up with a seven year sentence. He's obviously out now and sounds like he is doing well. (Although getting a job has to be hard.)

DWI crash - The driver went straight at the cruiser with no attempt to avoid it. That tells me it is premeditated attempted murder of a police officer. We need to sest an example once in a while for the braindead who don't get it. My bottom sentence...30 Years!

Meth client - Goes to prove that dopers are the sludge of our society. You got him probation and he went right back on meth for a 7 year trip to the slam. What a mental snail! Betcha he will be back soon. Lock 'em up!!!

Ok Barry, this is a random morning observation:

I am TIRED of waiving at the Decatur Fire Marshal in his pimped city paid vehicle, and he never waives back. (not real friendly and I help pay his salary) What really pisses me off is that I pay to take my kids to school about $3.50 a gallon. I was right in front of the PIMP MOBILE again today in the School Zone................. What if there was a fire,,,,are his kids in danger going to the fire with him, will he go to the fire in a hurry or have to finish his personal business before responding. I am a taxpayer in Decatur, my kids go to Rann and I will be at the next City Council Meeting.

Science disproves global warming not the snow storm.

7:59, get a heart.

8:02, get a life.

And what's wrong with you, Barry ... I LOVE the Susan B. Anthony dollar.

8:33 Real science, NOT the Oil and Gas... lets live it up while we can.... bought and paid for "science" strongly proves we are emitting too many green house gases. Even the very conservative Baptists now recognize this. Its fun to be a glutton now, but there are consequences that follow.

The pig in the pantsuit is doing her best to keep rascism alive and well. Isn't that the liberal weenie playbook? I find it strange that well educated scientists and climatoligists are disproving global warming compared to a privileged politician that is making millions off of it by causing hysteria. I will take globull warming serious when Al does by moving into a moderate size home and taking public transportation instead of Gulfstreams to speaking engagements and not charging thousands of dollars for his appearance.

OK 8:02 your bitching about a waive is stupid......... I know the Fire Marshal and he is a little dry and does not waive at me either.........BUT.........the real bitch should not be with him, but with the City of Decatur for allowing city vehicles to be used on personal business. Expedition $25,000, lights and all the whistles $5000 (or more) color stripes $400, window tint $300, and all the fluffy extras $10,000 So WE and I mean WE paid about 40k for that think we do not need......I think if I get the invoices from the City of Decatur, my estimates would be close. After watching Fox 4 news on the Dallas DA, I bet those invoices are open records........Mayor Lambert, can I get the records.....

Barry, you just proved how narrow minded you really are. Even though the surge is working, you are still going to have casualties. Even though the 72 Miami Dolphins had a perfect season, did they keep all of their opponents from scoring on them? I don't think the perfect war has ever been fought. You epitomize the term liberal weenie.

My kids also go to Rann, and I agree with you. I've seen him picking up his kids in the "pimp mobile" with his wife in the car. I guess since it's free to him, why not carry the whole family around. Doesn't seem right! Wonder if they take family vacations on the Decatur's $$$$$$$$

Prostitutes were about 30 marks (15 dollars back then) when I was in Germany. I met a girl who was from Kansas working in a brothel in Frankfurt.

How many people do you think take their kids to school in their company vehicle? Theirs just isn't as noticeable (sp?)! Give the guy a break.

Both the surge and global warming are inconclusive. Science can't prove global warming, it can only supply evidence.

Call girls seem to be a hot topic (excuse the pun).

I believe the Ferraro out burst was planned by the campaign and the consequences were anticipated. The Clintons keep trying the race card because they know that Americans will give a black guy who has Hussein as a middle name a free ride in the election.

Syracuse is only 3 1/2 hours from me so I may check out that babe.

Since we have 2 of the pimped out ride you maybe seeing double.
please tell me WHY we have 2 of them or why we have even one of them? Why do they take the biggest fire truck when the go out to eat? I guess that is to get even for not having a pimped out ride to take.

What has irritated me is the token $2 bill from Sweetie Pie's. Try to get a refreshing beverage at a fast food joint in town. They have to ask if they can accept it.

Barry, regarding Ferraro, Obama's mother is white and his father is black. White + Black = Black?

I just do not get it.

TAXES: If they don't spend the money, it would be considered overtaxation. Our state gives lessons at overspending. A good example is the new County Emergency Command Center, it had to cost at least 3 or 400,000. This is considered pride-in-taxation. What better way to show you your tax money at work!

Not to worry though, we get some new taxes soon... like for higher education and water and then there are the schools that never have enough money to educate our children.

But we have a man with a plan! Watch everyone scream in fear when someone wants to change the way government run institutions are funded!

Do you think it will stop???

It won't affect me though, I'm moving into my new highrise in June!

The Bush Tragedy?

I had my own "bush tragedy" back in high school.

I was scratching for days.

I think overlooked in these posts is how hot the Syracuse chick is...I also liked Denny's new high rise...classy!

9:26 - You imply that the conclusions of scientists who take money from oil and gas are not to be trusted.

By that rationale, the conclusions of any scientists who take any money at all while doing their research can not be trusted. Take away all government grants and cash from environmentalist groups and we can call the playing field even.

There may indeed be manmade global warming, but the global warming alarmists have used faulty research methods, exaggerated claims and misrepresentation of scientists' findings to advance their argument.

Their methods alone cast doubt on their argument. And to say "The debate is over," as Gore did, is just asinine, an attempt to quash difficult questions and honest debate.

To radically alter our culture and society based on their arguments so far would be foolish. Real science without political interference is needed more than any kind of government action.

Didn't Ferraro know going in that anybody that associates with the Clinton Mafia gets a raw deal? Vince Foster, Ron Brown, Cisneros........

Why are women who marry for money not considered prostitutes also? And why is only a direct cash payment to someone for sex considered prostitution? If you give a girl Monopoly money for sex, that's fine. Or if she just gives you a free one, that's fine. Got a mistress? No problem, that's perfectly legal (though you might sure get in hot water where it counts, but at least you don't go to jail), if you pay the money on dinner and a movie or buy her groceries instead, that's fine. But by God if you hand her cash while saying "I'd like to have sex with you" you get locked up.

8:02, think, McFly. So you would prefer the fire marshall to take his kids to school in his own vehicle, and if an incident happened to occur at the moment, you'd rather he have to go fetch his official vehicle instead of being able to respond directly? Go ride with a police officer, a fireman, a trooper for a couple days. You'll sing a different tune when you see what they see and have to deal with and what they do. Personally, I want the people directly responsible for saving lives to have what they need, be proud of it, and have it at their disposal 24/7.

9:54,,,,,,,,,,think baout what you are typing,,,,FIRE MARSHAL does NOT work accidents. AND for the record, I have not seen ANY instances in the CITY OF DECATUR where the Fire Marshal needs this HIGH DOLLAR VEHICLE. I have visited with the Chief of the FD and he my friend is a great guy.......I called Mayor Lambert and spoke my peace about the overspending on the TWO pimp vehicles as well as the kids in the city cars. I was told that the kids are not covered on City insurance.

Why attack only the Fire Marshal and his children?? What about all the other City/County officials and the police officers that drive their city/county vehicles with their families in them. The Decatur Fire Marshal is also a Deputy Fire Chief for the City of Decatur and does more than just investigate fires.

Find something better to gripe about. What about the Decatur Chamber. Letting husband and wife "run" the place... they're never there! Not to mention when you go in there the husband has his feet up on the desk and there kids are screaming running around the place.
