Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


- Channel 5 did an alarmist "Date Rape Drug" story last night: Jane McGarry says "never put your drink down."
- Law and Order in some ways is kind of silly. Saw a defense lawyer, right in front of his client, ask for a plea bargain from the prosecutor last night and then accept it immediately. Ya might want to ask your client about that, hoss.
- John Edwards endorsed Obama yesterday. I think endorsements have no impact whatsoever - unless some nutcase endorses you. Uh, I endorse John McCain.
- Anybody found the Versus network yet?
- Check out the title bar at the very top of your screen.
- Every newscast last night warned me of "Crazy Raspberry Ants." They use their dead to build bridges, or so Channel 5 told me this morning. Do they scream, "Tonight we dine in hell!!!!"?
- The other day Kay Bailey Hutchison popped on Rush Limbaugh's show on WBAP and thanked him for all that he "did for America." And to think I shook her hand at the old Decatur K-Bob's once.
- Other than maybe two people, I don't know the identity of any of the commenters on here who have Google IDs associated with them. But I do see a pattern: Someone posts a lot, gets bombarded with attacks, and then they go back to anonymous posting. Don't blame 'em.
- Tonya Harding is on The Today Show this morning promoting a new book. That poor girl's wheels are still off.
- Pic of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's yacht that Brad and Angelina just vacationed on in Monaco. I was on an Alumacraft with a 15 hp motor on Lake Bridgeport once.
- That crazy Six Flags commercial of the old lady laughing as she shines a light on the wall causing her cat to go nuts is funny.
- And I still laugh at the new/old Bill O'Reilly tape when he screams, "We'll do it live!!!!!"
- A multi-million verdict against Vioxx which was awarded by some crazy South Texas jury was overturned yesterday. That crying you heard last night was a guy was a lawyer who went from poor to rich to poor again because of a "contingency fee."
- I've had a 7 gram of fat frozen quesadilla for dinner for five straight days.
- Our Presidet honors fallen soldiers by giving up golf. Didn't he do a skit once where he looked for WMDs in his office?
- Megan Henderson "Hey, Now." (Thanks emailer and Frontburner)

You failed to note Bush's flat acknowledgment, in that interview, that of course global warming "is real."

So, why don't they call them Spart"ants"?

It drives me nuts that just because a few people in the world know someone's name they're convinced they can write a book.

If you have Dish Network, you have to have the Dish 250 package to get Versus Channel. Not sure if any of the local cable companies offer it. Also, the Paul Allen yacht shown in the link is just one of several that he owns. He also has a 198 footer called "Medusa" that was anchored at the pier in Cozumel two January's ago when our cruise ship, Conquest. stopped there for the day. It's not quite as large as the one shown, but did have a helicopter attached on the back deck.

John Edwards endorsement of Obama. So what?

All this is just to unite the Democratic Party which badly needed it.

And Bush on global warming? So where has he been besides out of touch with reality?

Some say he's boozin' again.

It amazes me to hear the Repubs talk about "tort reform". Does anyone actually know anyone who actually receives any money from one of these settlements? Don't they always get overturned? or the big company just drags them out forever?

Just me, but I would trust 12 citizens of Wise County to figure it out before I trust any judge or group of judges or elected official to figure out what is right.

And those citizens even include some of the people who post on this blog.

John Edwards is a punk who used his wife's breast cancer diagnosis as a tool to generate donations to his presidential campaign!

For those of us that live in the big city in Verizon FiOS enabled neighborhoods, its available in the FiOS TV basic package. So is the NFL Network.

Versus is 603 on DirecTV. That's where we watch the Stars get their arses whooped by the Red Wings, except for the last game.

yeah, John Edwards really went out on a limb to endorse Obama, considering he will get the nomination, barring some weird legal maneuver by the Pant-suited One. Could he be trying for the VP spot? A white Southern man on the ticket would seem to round it out quite well.

Funny how an intentional mischaracterization in a heading by our esteemed host can affect one's attitude. You read about Bush's golf statement and it doesn't seem nearly as shallow as BG made it sound.

Politicians on global warming are like rats swimming toward a sinking ship. They're endorsing policies based on bad science which is starting to be revealed. Gore's propagandumentary has been discredited on numerous points, and Gore's profiteering from carbon credits has been documented. By the way, what's the earth's temperature supposed to be?

Obama and Edwards on the same ticket? That's cheese on a cracker.

Global Warming is a bunch of CRAP!
There have been days throughtout the years that have set records for cold days and hot days. It was hotter this week in 1970 than it's been this whole month. You can see that on the news every night. Polar Bears, great animals but why don't the poeple who believe Global Warming is driving them to extinction go visit them more often or have one as a pet? Because they get their info. from the nut jobs who's job it is to check on them 3-4 times a year. It doesn't seem to be bothering the penguins, carabo(sic) or sea lions. Nope, it's just something for the Liberals to complain about. And yes, I wanted to puke when Bush decided to protect the Polar Bears and McCain jumped on the Warming issue. And no I don't hunt. And no I have no desire to shoot a Polar Bear. And the Six Flags commercials SUCK! What sixth grade marketing person thought that up? Everytime that Asian dude sticks his head out and say's "won flag" -"sic flag" I wanna kick the T.V. It's just down-right stupid. Wordkyle, PREACH ON BROTHER!

Yeah,global warming,whatever. In about 2.5 months you'll see a spike in those stories. Then when you think you can't take it anymore and your head is going to explode, it will rapidly cool off. That will be blamed on global warming then it will warm up...
I think I know where these stories usually end:Humans bad-right?

Who actually gets to hit girls like that? Is their just a couple of thousand guys that travel in a circuit and do these young lovelies? I shock even myself when I think of the number of women I've been with.Guys give the women I'm with "Hey nows" and serious girlfriends and wives are forever finding pics and stuff and feel sufficiently theatened to burn it all but,I have never,ever in the history of ever been with a woman that fine.
This deserves further research and investigation.

I assume Bush's claim to have given up golf (and yes, it is just as shallow as BG implies) is what Laura Bush was referring to when she said "no one suffers more than their president and I do" when asked in a recent interview about the effects of the Iraq war.

Honestly, that's what she said: "NO ONE".

Bush claimed to have given up golf in August. Actually, turns out he was playing well after that time. I don't think he was lying or anything......just got hold of some bad intelligence. He probably didn't realize he was playing golf.

wordkyle said...

1058 - Read Bush's quote. He decided to give up golf AFTER the August bombing. Sure, over the next two months he played a few more times. Have you ever decided something was not worth doing, tapered off and quit? Is there any indication that he's played golf in the five years since that time?

The mischaracterization of Bush's gesture -- which is what you just did -- is the kind of thing that makes thinking people question every Liberal statement.

Anonymous said...

Bush claimed to have given up golf to show "solidarity" with the soldiers in Iraq. That is not a mischaracterization. Try as you might, there is just no way to characterize that as anything other than what it is: stunningly shallow. Better he should give up the Iraq war to go play golf.

Your blanket statements about those you perceive to be liberal is the kind of thing that makes thinking people question your statements.

wordkyle said...

1038 - okay....First, Bush's "solidarity" comment was about the families, not about the soldiers themselves. (Quote: "I feel I owe it to be in solidarity as best as I can with them.") Second, his statement was that they pulled him off the golf course to tell him about the August 2003 bombings of the UN headquarters in Baghdad. He said "It's just not worth it anymore to do." and "I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal."

Not "shallow." Not a "tribute" -- as has been claimed in the Libosphere -- but something that he thought was inappropriate and not worth doing anymore.

It's a personal decision he came to that has now been mischaracterized by Liberal Bush-haters -- again -- as has almost everything he's done since being elected in 2000.

The grotesque exaggerations of everything Bush-related by you and your fellow Liberals do make thinking individuals question your every statement -- because too many of them have been untrue.

Anonymous said...

"First, Bush's 'solidarity' comment was about the families, not about the soldiers themselves."

Um....yes. OK. I see. Naturally, that makes all the difference. In that light, giving up golf seems a meaningful, appropriate and entirely substantial show of "solidarity" with the families of soldiers; those who are fighting and those who have fallen. After all, as the First Lady has said, no one suffers more than the president.

Based on the latest approval polls, I assume by "Bush haters" you are referring to 70% of U.S. citizens.

C'mon now. Be honest. Even as you were writing your latest comment in defense of Bush weren't you inwardly cringing just a little?

wordkyle said...

537 - Cringe? Because of a gesture of respect by a decent man? I think not -- but I can see why Liberals would be uncomfortable with the idea.

You Bush-haters - and by that I mean those of you who have never managed to put Florida 2000 behind them -- show a dedicated malevolence in twisting everything Bush does into something bad. Depending on your particular attack, he is either a) an evil genius, or b) the dumbest person who ever lived.

You blithely breeze past the fact that you misstated Bush's position. If Liberals ever have a valid point -- which has become more and more rare -- it's hard to find beneath the mountain of distortions, misrepresentations and falsehoods that you constantly try to pass off as fact.

Cringe? I only cringe when I think about letting a Liberal lie go unchallenged.

Anonymous said...

Now if you would only cringe at those Conservative Lies.......but no....Conservative Lies OK......gotta make more......

wordkyle said...

729 - Check the MSM or your favorite Libosphere website for people jumping on Conservatives. If they can't find a lie, they'll make one up. (Dan Rather, anyone?)

Conservatives punish their own rather harshly for falling short. When was the last time Liberals punished another Liberal for lying, or any other transgression?

Meanwhile, Liberals have tried to morph a respectful gesture by the President into something bad. What motivates a person to do something like that?

Anonymous said...

If a respectful gesture, why did it have to be brought to the Nation's attention?
A matter of opinion that "Conservatives punish their own..." harshly.
You are gullible enough to think that all conservative lies are made up?
Ha Ha.

I don't believe that Bush is the dumbest person that every lived or and evil genius. Isn't that what Cheney and his advisors are for? Bush is just in over his head. Katrina, anyone?

As for playing golf: the simple reason we don't see him playing golf anymore is because his daddy was shown on TV in a split-screen playing golf while flag draped coffins were being unloaded during the first gulf war. He has been told to avoid that particular mistake. That is also the reason we don't see flag draped coffins either.

Meanwhile, his sense of "solidarity" hasn't prevented him from being photographed clearing brush or speed boating or taking innumerable vacations.
