Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • I've always thought that Discount Tire ad, encouraging people to bring their tire back (by throwing it through the window) if they weredissatisfied, was weird.
  • I saw a fireworks stand this morning where you can buy 1 and get 1 free!!!! Oh, wait.
  • Megan Hendeson wore yellow.this morning on Fox 4 and looked hawt.
  • General Motors stock fell below $10 a share yesterday for the first time since 1954. Things are getting bad.
  • Saw Tarrant County prosecutor Richard Alpert, who I've known since 1992, on TV yesterday bragging about how cops in Tarrant County will seek search warrants for blood this weekend when someone is arrested for DWI. He was firing off a "We will track you down and find you" speech for all the cameras. (For a second, I thought The Taliban would be doing a bunch of drunk driving in Fort Worth this weekend.) But just two weeks ago, he wouldn't talk to the press about the kid who was no billed by the grand jury in connection with the death of the Chico couple on Bonds Ranch Road.
  • I was wrong about predicting the judge would allow the Dallas County Sheriff to approve the Discovery Channel filming in the jail.
  • The Dallas Morning News home page this morning actually takes you to a different page for an ad that you had to click on to exit. Beating.
  • Stolen from elsewhere: "Sometimes people say I shouldn't mind being searched if I have nothing to hide. I immediately accuse them of having a swastika tattooed on their genitalia -- if they have nothing to hide, then surely they shouldn't mind dropping their pants to prove me wrong." Gold.
  • Someone drowned in Marine Creek Lake yesterday. I've never been in it. Which reminds me, I went to Burger's Lake as a teenager but have never been back. I want to. 
  • Jarhead had a pretty interesting take on the double Grandbury murder yesterday. .(But I noticed he has started using my Random Thought format which I have Triple Patented and Double Copyrighted. He'll soon hear from my Army of Lawyers.)
  • Are we what we Google?
  • I may go on vacation in a couple of weeks. I've thought about having a Guest Host for this here blog for that week, but I'm not sure about it. 
  • I have no interest in that Tila Tequila gal. I think she's nasty.
  • I don't think I have any friends who know who won the Bassmaster's Classic last year. And that's OK.
  • Fox 4 News had a jailhouse interview of some gal that allegedly got drunk and drove her vehicle through a Denton cemetary knocking down a bunch of headstones. Her defense: "It wasn't like I was riding around digging up people." Good point.
  • I stumbled upon an old Andy Griffith Show the other day where the Women's Ausillary Club had been arrested for some crazy charge. Andy (who oddly served as judge in a very Wise County sort of way) made the whole thing "go away" by finding them guilty but suspending the sentence. Aunt Bee then announced it was unacceptable because it was still a conviction that would show up on their "record".. She then said she was withdrawing her guilty plea and demanding a new trial. I wanted to hire Aunt Bee as an associate because she was deadly accurate from a criminal procedure prospective.
  • And The Andy Griffith Show went downhill when it changed from black and white to color.
  • Christie Brinkley's estranged husband spent about $3,000 a month on pornographic Web sites, the model's lawyer said at the start of the couple's nasty divorce trial. What? Pay for internet porn?
  • I would hate to be a traffic cop. I just have no desire to ruin someone's day with a speeding ticket

Meagan Henderson definitely was HOT this morning!!! When I saw I immediately wondered if you were going to comment on her....good job! By the way...have you ever noticed that she appears a little "lop-sided" (if you know what I mean)? Either way, she always brightens my day!!

My random thoughts:
When I was a kid if you set a canned Coke down for 5 minutes it would be nearly too flat to drink. Now,it's not unusual for me to take a drink from one that's been on the nightstand overnight and it will be just fine.
Also when we all started using microwave ovens if you put a chicken dish of any type in there it would come out so rubbery it would be inedible. But,today a lot of dishes instructions state microwaving is the preferred method.
Those food scientists have been up to some shenanigans over the past 35 years if you ask me.

Uh......the Andy Griffith Show went downhill once Barney Fife left (which coincided with the change from black and white to color).

And yes......Megan looked HOT this morning......she even showed a tad bit of cleavage if you looked closely enough. Now I really do wish I had an HDTV for a better view, LOL!

I sometimes switch over to Channel 11.....Ginger Allen is pretty cute, and their traffic girl is a total babe!

BG..i would like to know how and where you draw the line on what's ok, what's right on the edge, and what is over the line??? please have thoughts on that...i bet a lot of people would like to know....

Yesterday the Hard Line had an interesting take on the Christie Brinkley divorce case:
Kobby: He was paying $3,000 for internet porn
Danny: Why?! It's free!
Mike: Not the good stuff
Danny: What do you want - an astronaut with a camel?
unidentified (Grubes, maybe?): two chicks with a cup: free. Three chicks with a cup: you gotta pay!

Then it got even weirder with talk of two Asian chicks barfing on each other and stomping hamsters, but that exchange was priceless!

I think it's amusing that Tila Tequila got rejected on her season finale.

Jarhead said...

LOL. About 35 seconds after I posted my [plagarized] version of your "Random Thoughts," (which I call "Deep Thoughts" ~ a name I stole from Jack Handey) I got a comment from one of your undoubtedly loyal followers accusing me of "sticking my head up BG's ass" which I took to mean that I was being unoriginal, which I was.

I further admit that your Triple Patented and Double Copyrighted format saves having to compose posts on 20 different subjects.

Nobody wants a "police" state. However, if lives are are saved because we all must endure a search---yes, even a properly conducted strip search---then it is a small price to pay in the long run. Individual freedoms are going to suffer because of the dangerous times in which we live. There are still ample legal remedies, and willing lawyers to file them for those who feel that their rights have been wrongly violated. Ask an Israeli if they mind being searched before flying El Al---and I don't think anyone would be more offended by "police state" tactics than a Jew---but you never hear any complaints about the security measures employed by the government in Israel. Their citizens understand that individual freedoms must suffer for their very survival. Why should Americans feel any differently?

I'm as big a fan of Jarhead's blog as anyone, but how exactly is quoting parts of the article and bolding certain phrases an "interesting take"?

Jarhead said...

I agree, jbb. I went back and read the post again (I didn't remember writing anything that interesting) and it was basically all a quote from the paper.

Perhaps it should have said "an interesting follow-up."

I do, however, appreciate the shout-out, BG. :)

BG do you really believe that Jarlid ( Leatherneck DevilDog) is afraid of your army of (be all you can be) lawyers. We all know that any army that you command would never fight unless it was to keep Starbucks open.

Re: getting pulled over by a cop.

*Spoken* "What you pullin' me over fo' mistuh offi-suh?
I'll be askin' the questions Leroy.
My name ain't Leroy, man.
Heh, all right Jerome, outta the car.
Man, why I gotta be Jerome man? Why can't I be Tommy or Philbert or something?
Just put your hands on the hood Muhammed
*RAP*
It's the man that you love to hate
Coming outta Washington state
Cops don't like my profile
Cause Mixalot kicks much style
So the man is on my trail
He wanna take Mix to jail
If he does, I'll make the bail
Cause I know alot of rich females
I'm shakin' 'em just like this
Keepin' that Porsche in fifth
King County cops don't quit
Even when a young brothers legit
So they follow me wherever I go
I hear 'em on the radio
With a scanner that I bought from the sto'
Cause a brother like Mix gotta know
I'm checkin' them cops with radar
They don't believe I'm a rap star
That my brain is up to par
An I'm ready when they follow my car
I know they wanna spray me with mace
Cause my trunk keeps pumpin' much bass
But they best get outta my face
Cause one-times got no case, give it to me
One-times got no case
The police think I'm movin' them keys
They trip cause I clock much D
They pull a gat an' they yell out "Freeze!"
I'm whippin' out my I.D.
My gat sits under my seat
The cops throw me out in the street
They found my gun like thieves
Officer Friendly has got a new beat
So I show him my gun permit
I told him I roll legit
Give me a test to see if I'm drinkin'
They claim my breath was stinkin'
They had me walk on the line
I walked backwards stopped on a dime
My female just reclines
Cause she knows I know the time
I'm hip to the cop procedure
They get ya everytime they see ya
They stop ya, they cuff ya
They roll ya an' they rough ya
They ask what I do for a livin'
Should this information be givin'?
This is what keeps me driven
Some cops want a brother in prison
So I got me a few attorneys
Just in case a cop wanna burn me
They protect me from the state
Cause one-time's got no case, break it on down
One-times got no case
A cop asks me "What's my name, and don't lie"
And I'm askin' officer "Why?
Why ya wanna mess with a brother like Mix
When you know I'm livin' legit?"
The cop said "Don't get smart.
I tear soul-brother apart"
I said "Well take off your gun, if you wanna get done
An' I'll show you that I ain't the one"
The cop rolled up his fist
Puts the handcuffs on my wrists
Then he threw a straight jab and he missed
A female cop pulls up and she's pissed
But this cop had K-9
A soul sister, yes she's fine
I said "Won't ya help a brother outta bind?"
But that badge was going to her mind
So she stuck a billy club in my back
She said "Don't think because you're black
That I won't beat you", crack, "hit you with the gat"
Her partner starts to laugh
Oooh, hit 'em again. Hit 'em again.
So they took me on down to the jail
P.L.B. came to pay my bail
Then we called Goldstein and Claire
Them's my lawyers
Walkin' up the stairs
To the courtroom dressed in suits
'Bout to give a couple cops the boot
So the female cop takes the stand
Took her oath with the wrong damn hand
My lawyers ate her up like catfish
The other cop pleads the fifth
She lost her job
I seen a few tears on her face
Sorry baby, one-time's got no case"
~ Sir Mix-A-Lot

why is it that the police and their unions resist having cameras video all the actions of both parties..i know from personal experience many cops will make up lies if they feel they need to, so their actions are always justified...

I wanted to wait for sex until I got married someday after a brutal divorce. I did good for 2 years then I met somebody awesome and since I thought she might be the one well,you can guess.
But,here's the deal in spite of how pretty she was she had inverted (is that what they are called?) nipples,the lips of her vagina hung down "like the sleeves of a wizards robe" and her anus well,you ever hear that one about the girl they called Blossom?
I don't know why I'm saying this but,it's bothering the mess out of me-what if I'd waited? Holy smokes I can't even imagine.

I have had a police officer lie on a report regarding a statement I made after a wreck-he knew the guy that hit me and was trying to take care of him. I even called the guy and he remembered it the way I did days later- for that one call. It cost me over 4000.00 dollars in 1995.
Ever since if a cop tells me good morning I check my watch.

To anonymous 8:54...
That was a funny bit. His name is "Corby" as in Corbin Davidson. His nickname is Cobra not "Kobby".

Those guys crack me up. I still miss Greggo and get sometimes get tired of the show being all about Rhyner and Corby sucking up to him.

Anonymous said...

No doubt there are some bad cops in law enforcement, but thank God there are many more who are dedicated, hard working, and honest professionals.

11:36--I hope that maybe some of those officer's questions turn up and intercept someone up to no good on the way to your neighborhood at the expense of maybe delaying you for a few minutes if you ever get stopped again.

12:46---It seems that a great many traffic stops are currently recorded start to finish by video. Otherwise, how would there possibly be as many cop shows showing them, or submitted for evidence at trials?

Somebody please explain to me what a "bad" guy looks like? Maybe detention and questioning goes a long way towards answering this question.

I wish cops would ruin a few rock truck driver's day on SH 114. I drive it everyday and seldom see one. Oh, except in Boyd. I guess the others are at the donut shop. Or at their girlfriend's house on some back road in the county.

someone please splain to this guy that in america we are entitled to the PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE..and the probable cause thing that i believe scotus has ruled on..i hope 2:27 is not trying to say that cops don't violate peoples rights every day all over this country.. and make outright lies if they feel the need, remember scotus did give them the right to lie to innocent americans.

Mzchief:
Yes, you are correct his name is Corby, but one of his many nicknames (usually given by others who mispronounce Corby) is Kobby. Every once in a while they will call him that. Trust me on this one.

2:59..Law enforcement officers do not determine guilt or innocence--that is a function of the courts--they enforce the laws that you and I are expected as good citizens to obey.

The misinformed/misguided person referring to citizens of Israel not complaining about security measures? For what it's worth, they do and do so frequently.

you cops are a lying bunch of sob's, you want to try to act like your out to really take a bite out of crime, when in truth you would think you sob's had made some major drug bust, when all you really did was arrest some 17 year old kid with a very small amount of pot. not to mention what happens every time this kid gets pulled over for the rest of his life. as soon as criminal history comes back guess what...search time,p c or not....

5:04 it would probably do just about as much good, cops never get there until way after the crime has been commited..there is one question i would love an honest answer to....if pot is such a "dangerous drug" how come when cops stop someone who has definately been smoking..why don't that person get charged with dui???
