Random Friday Morning Thoughts


- "Federal authorities on Thursday broke up a Tarrant County-based Asian drug ring that imported thousands of pounds of high-potency marijuana into North Texas from Canada in the last three years, according to U.S. Attorney Richard Roper's office."A three year investigation over pot? I'm more concerned about our high tax bills than people getting high on pot.
- I saw two new girls in a Sonic commercial this morning that I've never seen before. Not sure what I think about that.
- I keep remembering to take a picture of a weird billboard outside of Rhome that's a repetition of dog with a crazy background. Have no idea what it is for.
- I was always a huge "Sex And The City" fan. And Channel 8's Gary Gogill calls the new movie "The greatest chick flick of all time."
- I'm halfway through "There Will Be Blood." Loved the phrase "blow gold all over this place" in reference to the potential oil well.
- Finished "The Great Gatsby" yesterday. Can I rename it "The Pretty Good Gatsby"?
- I think my next book will be the one written by Pat Tillman's mom. That guy, although a patriot, was probably a knuckledhead but I'm more interested in the government cover up in connection with his "friendly fire" death. Edit: And by "knucklehead" I mean if he is anything like his brother who threw down some F Bombs at the funeral and showed up in a T-shirt.
- There's always a White Envoy around the courthouse square. Saw it yesterday with significant rear-end damage. I was frustrated that I didn't have anyway of finding out what happened.
- The NFL commissioner met with Pacman Jones over the weekend about his reinstatement. Do you think the suit wearing, button-downed commissioner ever referred to him as "Pacman"?
- Fox 4 carried a police chase live at 6:30 p.m. yesterday. I'd watch a 24 hour police chase channel if there were one.
- Worst boyfriend ever?
- Worst sucker punch ever?
- Listened to a little bit of Jeff Bolton on KLIF this morning. I now know what all the right wing nut cases are listening to in the morning.
- A commenter noted that Harvey Korman has died. Maybe I'm not paying attention, but its not getting much media attention this morning. A lot of old TV is bad TV, but any skit involving Harvey Korman and Tim Conway, with Korman always unable to control his laughter, was worth watching. Edit: Youtube clip of a skit of the two.
- Vincent
Bugliosi, the Charles Manson prosecutor, has recently authored "The Prosecution Of George W. Bush For Murder". He was on the Mark Davis show yesterday pn WBAP, and I thought they were going to come to blows. (If you could come to blows over a telephone wire.)
- Got sucked into some college softball playoffs last night on ESPN. I still enjoy the huge smiles that break out on the girls faces whenever a crucial hit is made.
- Added Craig's List to the Wise County home page a couple of days ago. Some great stuff on there and some freaky stuff on there.
- If you could time travel, would you go forward or backwards? No question for me: I'd be a disciple of Jesus for two years.
- Even I'm surprised by the poll results for the Random Thoughts. Sometimes I can fire these off in a crazed stream of consciousness. Other times I struggle like a drunk Joe Namath.

Barry - you should be forever banned from using the word "ever" ever again.

Please do not refer to Pat Tillman as a "knucklehead."

When was the last time that you gave something up for your country?

Let me guess. NEVER.

Your comment disrespects his memory and all that he gave up to support your country. I challenge you to blog ANYTHING about you that even remotely rises to the level of sacrifice that Pat Tillman gave for his country.

The high speed chase for me was a head scratcher. The guy had several prior convictions, but when they finally got him down and ran his name through the system, they did not find any outstanding warrants on the guy. He could have paid a hefty fine for speeding and that would be the end of it. He bolted because he assumed they would put him away based on the priors. The police spokes dude on TV last night amused me: (Paraphrase) "We can probably accommodate him." Someone with that much experience in the criminal justice system should have known what constitutes a three-strike violation.

concerning what right wing knuckleheads listen to in the morning. how about Obama's lastest and greatest preacher rant?

i know we cant beat up on the black guy but maybe the reason he has freinds like these is because he is one of these.

i think he might be the best actor/lier since bill clinton.

I am halfway through the Pat Tillman book and it is a good read. I did not know much about the situation before I picked up the book, but there are some strange things that happened to him and his family. I hope you enjoy it.

I was surprised at how many people thought the Random Thoughts was a failed bit. I kinda like it.

Here is another pretty sad sucker punch...

Mark Davis is a Right wing nutjob that, like his counterpart on TV, Bill O'Reilly, uses his position to bully people that don't agree with his perspective. Anyone with a good argument that differs from his line of thinking gets hung up on or talked over.
I can't for the life of me figure out why anybody but another right wing nutjob like himself would even listen to his program. If it wasn't for the fact that his bosses at the station are just as biased as he is, he would be long gone from radio.

I like the random thoughts. Similar to the Scatter Shooting that you used to do.

Why do young girls like to hunch each other on the dance floor these days?

I see it at all the clubs all the time everywhere or somethin.

I saw on the Drudgereport that there was not a man in sight at the premiere of "Sex and the City" except for one Barry Green. You go girl.

I for one am proud that we have "knuckleheads" that volunteer to keep liberal weenie pantie wastes safe.

I love the Randoms...like one commentor said, they're very reminiscent of The Skattershooting days. And, for a blogger, they're a very efficient way to post!

I just wish the T&A pics were fewer...anytime kids or Spouse walks up and sees them, I get, "WHAT are you looking at????" lol

To anonymous 9:35...
Young women who makeout and/or dance suggestively with other young women in a bar/club are known as bar-sexuals. Usually, they are only two drinks away from a public display of a lesbian act. Another name for these type of young women is attention whore. Rather disgusting if you ask me.

I like the T&A pics...I like Random Thoughts too. You go girl!

Any time 2 hot chicks hunch on the dancefloor or lock lips, are'nt we all winners?

Mel Brooks said "a world without Harvey Korman is a much more serious world."

I'd like to think Heaven just got funnier.

BG, I thought you were with Jesus and your name was Judas. No, wait, you along with the ACLU volunteered to defend Judas until he hanged himself.

I guess I'm getting old. The pics of the girls showing their stuff makes me feel creepy.
