Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



- Wise County tells Mena Suvari (pictured above from last weekend - uh, on the right) to "put on some britches."
- The Rangers won last night bringing them to .500. The last time they were at .500 was on April 13, 2007 (5-5),
- My review of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward of Robert Ford: Over 2 1/2 hours of Ford and James sitting around looking at each other, followed by the killing, followed by 15 minutes at warp speed of the very interesting post-assassination life of Ford.
- Robert Ford settled in Creede, CO after the assassination. Take a look at this incredible picture of the town in its current state.
- Query: I wonder if those that spew the incredible venom in the comments of the "gay Teen Court guy" below are also racists?
- Odd moment on Fox 4 a second ago from traffic guy Chip as he was reporting about an accident in Grapevine: "And the reports are that the driver has died. You're watching Good Day."
- I'm off to Jacksboro this morning. Listening to Steve Martin's new book, Born Standing Up.
- The Messenger has a story today about a gun incident on the Weatherford College campus in Weatherford (not the Decatur branch). I don't think it had anything in the world to do with Wise County. It even had the sub-headline of "Weatherford" above it. Just odd.

Who cares if the homophobes are racists?

IMHO, Homophobia = the Rev. Ted Haggard

Rascism and homophobia go hand in hand. Must originate in the same part of the brain, that handles the "habitual dislike" attitudes that people fire off. It is totally gut-level for these types, born out of fear and ignorance.

I suspect that those that bash the "queers" so easily have a fear that they are one, like Senator Craig, for instance.

I've been to Creede, CO, and it's a really cool town. Lost money in a gambling hall. But not much, because they have a $5 maximum bet at each casino in the town. It's a fun date.

Mena Suvari should never put on britches.

lovelit said...

Are you sure that's Mena Suvari? She's usually so white and her assets usually aren't so pronounced. Side note...it's Notre Dame; my apologies if the extra "r" was part of the not so funny joke.

In answer to your question, yes I am also a racist. I am in fact a mathematical racist.

All my life I have run my own business. Employing people has always been the biggest challenge. Out of 10 black men hired, 7 have stolen from me. The others were habitually late and unreliable.
White guys have proven to be about 30% bad, with very few thieves among them. Most move on for other reasons than dismissal. Mexicans are far and away the most productive, honest, and reliable. So I don't hire blacks. That makes me a mathemetician,,,,, I mean racist,,,,,, I mean realist. I hire whites because there aren't enough Mexicans.

Folks, it's as simple as this. If seven out of ten dogs I encounterad bit me, I would avoid dogs.

Drop-outs attending college. Can you say oxy moron (heavy on the moron for those of you who think Wise County schools are so bad).

Last I heard you couldn't attend college with "drop-out" on your record.

Duh!

Dear 5:53 pm, I agree with your comment completely, but I believe the other 3 were just too stupid to figure out a way to steal from you.
