Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



- Man, horrible case involving an alleged DWI incident in Dallas at 8:20 in the morning on Sunday that killed two bicyclists. Take a look at the vehicle.
- Can home grown tomatoes be found yet? And, in all seriousness, anyone know where to get the best? Me loves me some home grown tomatoes.
- Uh, in a related item, is samonella fatal?
- You can't help but notice the new strip club in Fort Worth off I-35 as you head into downtown. (No, I have not been in it because of Lent. Wait, I may have that wrong.) Anyway, I drive by it all the time on the way to Driver's License hearings and that parking lot always looks vacant. The fact that you can see the parking lot from the freeway might have something to do with it.
- Still working on the Pat Tillman book written by his mom. She's over the top. At one point she ran out the theory that the Bush Administration might have had him killed to take the press off the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. Sheesh. That's hard core.
- I've still got HBO's Recount on my TIVO but haven't watched it. Good thing I clicked on "Save Until Ever".
- I've arrived at work before 7:00 a.m. for the last three weeks. I kind of like it.
- Astronaut Jesus on Ebay?
- The Ex-Rockwall County DA's wheels are flying off everywhere. He received his second conviction yesterday for diverting $68,000 of DA office money to his personal checking account (before transferring it back once an audit caught him.) Instead of fessing up, his defense was that he was a bad bookkeeper. His lawyer even called the DA's first ex-wife in defense who testified,"When Ray and I were married, he was not allowed to keep our books," Ms. Sumrow said. "Ray cannot balance a checkbook. It's painful for him." I think I know what I'm doing in this criminal defense business because I never try to sell crap like that. He was convicted in 30 minutes.
- Decatur painted it's "no parking zones" with a Hooker Red color over the weekend.
- Update on the new free newspaper being published by the Dallas Morning News:
"The plan is to distribute 200,000 copies in the core Dallas market to households with incomes of $75,000 or more by 6 a.m. The target demo is adults 25-49, skewing toward women." Heck, that's my target demo on a typical Saturday night.
-
www.ImVotingRepublican.com I'm pretty sure that will cause WordKyle's head to blow up. (Thanks, Keith.)
- And for equal time, Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones have a new web site where they are trying to make money telling their lies stories about Bill Clinton. (Click on it to see Paula trying to look all "Hey, Now".) What did James Carville say about dragging a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park?
- The Sharper Image stores are all shutting down. I always thought that place was loaded with cheap stuff that was priced so high that you thought it had to be quality.
- When cable television came to Bridgeport decades ago, the first HBO movie ever to appear on the Green family television was Smokey and The Bandit. Then Jackie Gleason dropped an S Bomb within two minutes and the channel was changed.
- Not that I've seen either but: Why is there a new Hulk movie coming out when there was one that was released in 2003?
- I've got the picture of the guy standing in front of the tank in Tiananmen square in my office. Hardly anyone knows what it is. Had a guy who looked at it recently ask me, "Do you like tanks?"
- A Defendant who had a Wise County DWI trial scheduled for next week wanted a continuance because his brother was being executed in Huntsville on the same day. Not saying it's true, just saying that was his request.
- Watched, by accident, some of the local news on Channel 8 this morning. Verdict: Painful. In addition to Forced Happy Dialogue, I also got beaten down by back to back stories on How Eating Meat Increases Your Carbon Footprint and You Need A Wellness Coach.
- And that crazy News 8 traffic animation - where the cars look like they are 50 feet long - is just plain silly.
- Couldn't find a link, but the Dallas Police Department will start testing its officers for steroids. (Uh, steroids?). Does this mean DPD doesn't trust a Dallas police officer to be honest when he simply says he's not using steroids?
- Edit for Baylor fans only: There's hope.

If worbile's head would blow up that would be a good thing. Still one of the last people in the nation who "just cant get it" ...But then again when you have the republican arm sticking out of your ass and they use you like a puppet this is what you get. If he doesn't hear it on some republican talk show he doesn't have a original idea in his head.

If you go to the Dallas Farmers Market and purchase some east texas tomatoes you will think that you have died and gone to heaven. They are grown in a very sandy soil and have a high acid content. They are the best tomatoes you will ever eat. You can also purchase them in Canton if you go to First Monday. If you have never been the Dallas Farmers Market is awesome.

I've been to that strip club on I-35.....don't even bother with it!

It's nice inside, but the dancers are mostly nothing but a bunch of middle-aged women (and older) who really should have retired their high heels during the Reagan administration!

There are a few cute young girls, but nothing special!

There are much better places to go near Euless!

Cute website. Liberals have always been better at parody than Conservatives. Having a simplistic view of the world apparently helps. This site simply illustrates how little Liberals understand Conservatives.

The problem is that while it's good for a laugh, too many Liberals think it's accurate. Of course, most Liberals also get their "news" from John Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

My take on the Liberal spit- and snot-slinging here? Mission Accomplished.

Remote Controller said...

You can find tomatoes at the Denton Farmer's market on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (7 am to noon or when they sell out). It is at the corner of Mulberry and Carroll in the Joseph A. Carroll building's parking lot.

Salmonella is rarely fatal if you get it from food, but if you get it from an iguana then you are screwed.

I was in Decatur this past weekend and saw a small produce stand on the corner of Bus. 380 and, I think, Main St., down from the square. I believe they had tomatoes!

And they made a new Hulk because, well, did anyone even remember there was a first one? Edward Norton as a white supremacist in American History X?...yes. As the Hulk?...maybe not.

Go down to Doug White's produce stand on the corner of washburn and walnut... he has tomatos and all kinds of good veggies!!!

That astronaut Jesus is nothing! Back in the 50's Del Rio Radio station XERF had a commercial for Autographed photos of Jesus Christ for $5. The people who ordered the photos received an autographed photo of a Mexican by the name of "Jesus Christo"! That station is also where Wolfman Jack worked for a few years.

Criminy, a comment about Republicans wanting to control your life???

The Democrats outlawed incandescent light bulbs, ferpeetsake. And there's no greater control than reducing your take home pay and forcing you to depend on governemnt for your needs - aka, the Democrat platform.

(And the reason our esteemed host gets more hits is because he posts photos of scantily-clad women/jailbait, while I put videos of full-automatic shotguns that fire 300 rounds per minute. Hoo-rah!)

Sorry Wordypile, but you do not hold a light bulb of any type to the writing creativity of Barry Green.

And the best way for you to NOT depend on the government is to deny Medicare or social security to any member of your family, including you.

Mail those checks back as quick as you get them.

Dare ya.

1120 - As a matter of fact, my family doesn't depend on Medicare or Social Security. Millions of other families don't either. Those people who DO depend on SS or Medicare bought the Democrats' bill of goods. How are those programs working out?

Privatize Social Security so individuals can invest their own money in the market and become self sufficient, and SS will disappear. Unfortunately, then Democrats wouldn't have anything to scare older voters with.

Good that you are wealthy enough NOT to have to depend on SS and Medicare (if you are old enough).....count your blessings that you do not have to depend upon the government.

Not all of us are so lucky. If it were not for Medicare and Social Security, many of our family members would be living under a bridge.

Since you have so many good answers to how to better our government, why don't YOU do the hard work, spend the money, and run for office.

By the way, your little graphic is encouraging folks to smoke. That's a whole lot worse than Barry's pics of scantily clad gals.
Give that some thought.

Why would anyone mail a check back? If I had a chance to get any of the tens of thousands of dollars in various taxes I've paid in my life mailing it to anybody but my bank would be out of the question.

wordkyle said...

1158 - Funny that you should mention being "wealthy." I've been reading The Millionaire Next Door by Stanley and Danko. What's the #1 attribute of the majority of millionaires studied? They live well below their means. As the authors say, "They became millionaires by budgeting and controlling expenses,and they maintain their affluent status the same way."

Nowhere in the book does it say "depend on the government." God bless your family members who are in that situation. Blame Democrats for helping put them there.

And when a cartoon drawing of a pipe encourages someone to smoke, more power to them. If they are that weak-willed, they have bigger problems than smoking. (And don't diss the image of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs. Sacrilege!)

1220 - My mission is accomplished when I get responses like yours. Wipe the babas off your keyboard.

Sorry, wordypile, but your mission isn't accomplished yet until your blog becomes as popular as this one. Actually your hits on here are making Barry even greater!

*OTFLOLHysterically@U*
Of ALL the loony comments you have left on Barry's blog the one that stands out as the MOST ridiculous requires quite a bit of explanation from YOU.

Precisely HOW does Wordkyle's avatar, of a guy holding a pipe in his mouth, any more encourage people to smoke than does Barry posting the photos of smokin' hot, young nubile, chicks encourage married men to cheat on their wives and straight women to turn gay?

My personal assessment of your commentary is that you lack any real credibility thus you felt compelled to resort to the RIDICULOUS.

Try again, Cletis/Praline.

Incidentally, Social Security was NEVER intended to be the sole means of support for retired people. People have ALWAYS been expected to save for their own retirement. If people stopped buying cigarettes, booze, new cars, cell phones, a $1,000+ Christmas, having more children than they can afford and dining out they would be able to save at least 10% of EVERYTHING they earn from the time they received their first paycheck. It is NOT the government's responsiblity to feed, house, clothe and/or provide medical care for ANYONE. This is the United States NOT a communist nation. If you do not like the way the government provides for the citizens of the U.S. get off your arse and provide for yourself and make sure you NEVER put yourself in the position to reguire the government to take care of YOUR basic needs.

I have been FORCED to pay into Social Security and you can bet I will take EVERY dime I can in an attempt to recover MY money from the government.

Of all the Baptists that I know, all of them do not believe in abortion so how can Jimmy Carter be a good Baptist. The murder of innocent children is only acceptable to you if it's done in the womb. Outside of the womb is what you call murder. I don't get the double standard.

I do think it's funny when wordkyle presents an argument and all the ANONYMOUS idiots can come back with are name-calling and venom spewed. That means you don't have the intelligence to joust swords in a good debate. I've seen wordkyle debate before, and for most of you people in here, it would be like taking a knife to a gunfight getting it on with him.

Just because I vehemently disagree with some/much of wordkyle's opinions it does not mean I do not appreciate that he frequently brings FACTS to the debate.

Incidentally, I was not defending wordkyle. I was pointing out STUPIDITY. I really, really, really, detest STUPIDITY.

Ignorance can be remedied with education but there is no cure for stupidity.

Wow, I'm glad nobody mentioned my blog.

Barry, you will enjoy Recount. Kevin Spacey does not disappoint. Heck, even Ed Begley,Jr turns in a decent performance. How long has it been since anyone said that?

It's not a 10, but it's got a beat you can dance to. I give it a solid 7. I really should do a full blown Movie Of The Week on it.

Salmonella can possibly be fatal if untreated. I caught it once when I was in the Coast Guard. I thought I was dying. I finally was too weak to make anymore trips to the bathroom and wound up spending the night in the shower. It was not pretty.

I made many promises to 6lb Baby Jesus that night.

Regarding the website imvotingrepublican.com -- a DIRECT QUOTE from "about the movie": "One third of all black males are not dangerous and evil." Poorly worded or subliminal message?

The rest is moveon/Soros junk. "Brown v. Board of Education," "separate but equal" -- they're having to go back a long way. For all their supposed concern about black people, Democrats don't show results. Fifty years and the problem's still not solved.

Maybe it's time for a change. Based on their own claims, Democrats can't get the job done.

Holy mackerel. The Liberal responders are coming out of the woodwork today -- literally.

Here's the shame of it all: The yahoos who posted -- 1139 through 1207 -- are typical of Democrat voters. They're the ones who support Obama because of his...what?

Experience? (no, can't be that)
Integrity? (with Rezko's conviction hanging around his neck? no way)
Judgment? (eek. Jeremiah Wright. William Ayers. Jim Johnson. Next question.)
Vision? (um, no...not sure what he really has in mind. He doesn't have much of a track record to go by...)

His supporters, exemplified by the anons above, subscribe to the Obama Charm School of Politics.

By the way, if you yahoos want to know what Conservatism is really about, try reading de Tocqueville, Disraeli and Burke. I'm sure you shining examples of the Democrat illiterati won't have any trouble with the vocabulary.
