Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • There seems to be a lot of birds looking for food on the ground over the last 24 hours
  • I continue to have serious questions about Wade Phillips getting it done. It's kind of like Hank Hill coaching the Cowboys.
  • I don't watch much of the Olympics, but I'm looking forward to the track and field competition.
  • I'm never eating at Taco Cabana again. One word: Bugs. (Bad experience last night.)
  • With Georgia being invaded by Russia, the famous words of W about Vladimir Putin: "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul."
  • When I was a kid in Bridgeport, in order to call a local number we just had to dial five numbers. And the first one was always "3".
  • I bet I saw over 50 kids jogging out of the Decatur High School at around 7:00 this morning.
  • Someone is already suing over the big bus crash in Sherman last week. I'm glad they were able to thoroughly investigate the facts so quickly before asking for a big bag of money to ease their pain.
  • I'm not sure what I think about The Shack (about halfway through it.) It is, in essence, about a guy who gets to talk to (and question) the Holy Trinity that appear to him after the tragic death of his daughter. But the Trinity takes the form of a big black woman, an Arab, and an Asian.
  • Little Cindy Brady of The Brady Bunch is 47 today. Oh, my.
  • I watched, for some unknown reason, the documentary called Okie Noodling last night. A bunch of rednecks swimming around in murky water trying to catch catfish with their bare hands. That's not on my list of "to dos" before I die.
  • One of the Texas 7 is scheduled to be executed tonight. If you recall, they were eventually captured in Colorado after escaping from a Texas prison and killing a police officer in Arlington Irving. I happened to drive through the small town in Colorado where they were captured about a year after the fact and they were selling souvenir T-shirts commemorating the event.
  • I helped look for a lost dog last night - unsuccessfully. That, my friends, is not-a-good. But I kept thinking what it would be like if it were a lost child and how horrific that would be.
  • (As reported on The Ticket): Brett Favre is a drama queen. He's making some strange statements and it wouldn't surprise some people if he quits the Jets before the season starts.
  • I always reach and get a milk carton from the back of the rack in the grocery store.
  • Yeah, I'm with ya about the quality of the pic above. I'll make it up to you later. (But it was taken by someone, not me, at Lake Lewisville.)
  • The head of the Democratic Party in Arkansas was shot to death yesterday. The shooter certainly matched the expected profile: Disgruntled middle-aged white guy. Anybody seen Wordkyle?
  • I think its insane that any local government can ever enact a curfew.
  • Two headlines on the Star-Telegram web site where you know, just know, someone's life went terribly wrong somewhere: (1) "Arlington Police Shock Nude Man With Taser", and (2) "HIV-positive Catholic priest accused of sexual abuse dies in North Texas".

Re: Conflict in Georgia. You liberals are absolutely sick, stupid, and rabid. You will not let a conflict between countries across the ocean pass without saying something negative about the Republician president, whoever he may be. You are stupid in that you refuse to accept the fact that throughout history countries have faught and they will continue to fight, no matter who the president of the United States is. As these borders across the ocean change, you attack and blame the Republicians.

These wars/conflicts are usually tied to migration of ethnic groups. One of the longest standing conflicts that deals with migration goes back to Exodus and the migration out of Egypt. This conlict still exists today and America is affected. I guess that you liberals can somehow blame Bush for what Moses did. I wonder when the liberal news media will pick up on this one.

History 101, final exam is one question: How many times in the past 1000 years have the international boundries in Europe gone unchanged for 10 years?

We Americans should concentrate on our own borders, rather than tell Europe how to handle theirs.

Okie Noodling
Oh yeah, makes your normal Texan feel like a captain of industry...or possibly a local warlord. Everybody should check that out if they get the chance. There's also a program (Discover channel?) where a guy goes around trying weird stuff, can't recall the name of it, but he tries his hand at Okie noodling. Funny thing is, after watching a couple of guys go at it, unsuccessfully, the host says "I'm beginning to think I've been taken on a two hour aquatic snipe hunt." If you ever "hunted" the mythical snipe as a kid, that is one funny line. (Yes, I know there really is a creature called the snipe, but I don't think there were ever any behind Kay St. in Bport.) He did snag a big catfish when they turned him loose, though. Ol' Deputy Dawg would have been proud of that thing.

Saw on the channel 8 news crawl this AM that Fav-rah said he "feels 38" and his arm was hurting. I'm thinking he is so going to regret demanding to be traded. Tarnished the heck out of that golden image he had, and not just in Green Bay

"Arlington Police Shock Nude Man With Taser"
I'll wager the nude man shocked Arlington police in the process, as well

I also recall the 5 digit phone call from back in the '60s. If you were calling within your own exchange (Bport's is 683)you just dropped the first two digits. That was true pretty much everywhere. I didn't grow up in Bport, but I do remember seeing that.

I'm with you on the Taco Cabana boycott. After visiting several locations, it just seems they are not trying all that hard to keep the dining areas cleaned up

When i buy anything at the grocery store its BEST to buy from the back of the rack,row,pile. When they restock they put the new/fresh in the BACK and the old goes to the front of the row

9:04 - your last comment sort of contradicted the rest of your post.

Yes, we should concentrate on our borders and every other concern in this country. Bush is jumping in with suggestions about how other countries should run their business.

It looks like he's stirring the waters for another war.

Enter McCain.

I think it is a terrible idea for the families of those killed and injured in the Sherman bus wreck to sue this early. I mean, seriously, all they know is that an illegal tire was negligently or intentionally used that caused a bunch of people to needlessly die. Forget the fact that the bus company was using an illegal permit. Yes, Barry, the families should wait about two years, make sure witnesses disappear, memories fade, and evidence can't be inspected before pursuing their legal rights. Come to think of it, why shouldn't the bus company simply be immune for killing people. Criminal defense is the only reputable legal skill. People killed as the result of negligence should have not legal rights, and, if they do, they shouldn't pursue them until you give them the green light.

Hey 9:55, how about Clinton and Bosnia. I never heard the liberals nor their news media complain about that one. Neither did they complain about Clinton's activities in Africa.

Holy cow, BG, I don't need to physically kill Democrats when it's so much more fun to slo-o-wwly torture them with the truth.

Hey Barry, My guess is that it was a lawyer that filed this lawsuit. Maybe you lawyers need to come up with some code of ethics. This case is a slam dunk but the money is going to run out quick (if there is any), so this scum bag lawyer wanted to be first in line.

The Georgian leader has been pro-West and pro-American. Georgia has the only nonRussian-controlled pipeline in central Asia. Europe gets most of its oil from central Asia.

Europe is afraid to oppose Russia because they need its oil. Georgia is an American ally in a vital part of the world. Russia is flexing its oil-financed military muscle to send a message to the rest of the former Soviet nations: don't befriend the West.

If America stands mutely by while Russia conquers the region (again,) we will soon see western Europe become what eastern Europe was a generation ago -- marionettes dangling from a Russian string.

What would Obama do? "Make sure your tires are properly inflated."

Do all Texas public officials have to wear the state bikini? Lord, let's hope not. I am not sure Ann Richards could have pulled it off, bless her soul.......

11:25, I agree with you. Due to the increase in the population of the earth and other factors, the migration of peoples has increased. Borders are ignored and the INS say they can't enforce them. When they are handed illegals by the Irving Police Department they say stop, we won't enforce the laws of America. And we, as Americans, tolerate illegals building our new houses because of our greed and materialism. We hire them to mow our lawns because they will do it cheaper than American citizens will.

We are seeing the change in the ethnic make up of America. In my own extended family there are members of several ethnic backgrounds. The color of America is going brown. You can't stop history, especially when the Republicans and Democrates ignore the electorate and encourage illegal crossing of our southern border. They rule as elitest who apparently feel the ignorant masses are not qualified to make decisions. Most of them are lawyers who are trained to distort the truth. That all said, you have a choice, accept it or migrate. How about Austrailia? To cross their borders you have to fly in or ride a boat. No walking in or swimming across a river.

I could tell you from first hand account about issue's regardin the ENGLISH population and how they are BROKEN and NO longer ENGLISH but are instead Dominated by the PAKI and INDIA ...peoples!
however few would belive me and most would question where I had gotten this information!
I am very well tracveled and do so extensivlyAnd offten!
I CAN PROMISE YOU as a NATION this U.S.A> is Doomed to that of the SAME FATE as jolly ol England (not so Jolly these days)
I knew back in 2001 when I saw Diain ragsdale and Al Lipscomb sitting in a DALLAS xity HAll metting her with the very outrageous AFRICAN head dress (hat) and Al with the very large African color flag (Banner as if some offfical statesmen for the MOTHER lAND) across his chest that wew were going into the toilet! esp when this was DALLAS city business being conducted and those two with this obnoxious GARB on was at best very distracting! These two keep this up for months seemingly turning it up a notch or two wearing increasinlgy obnoxious clothing! Finall6y someone spoke up regarding thier "conduct" which both became very incenced and appauled that they were being picked out! Well I wonder why ? Then both went on about how they were just "STANDING UP for thier AFRICAn heritage" Well let me tell you now that I dont belive then nor ever have either of these two been too the motherland and if they were invited to go neither could handel the oppresive heat and lack of creature comfort that DALLAS has givin them theier intire life!

I am German and Irish decent So if I walk into the DALLAS city chambers wearing a KILT and BLOWING a BAG pipe does it cause a distraction? I bet I would have been asked to leave in the first few moments even if I wasnt Blowing the bag pipe! I am A Well travled TEXAN and have lived in many contries for many years at a time! We have No reason to be in IRAQ or IAN much less thinking about PAKISTAN All of which I lived in for YEARS and YEARS!

We need to RIZE UP UNITE and KICK SOME serious ASS out of this Country NOW Its not that its just us WHITE FOLK that are the MINORITY which we are.... Its that we AMERICAN's Are the MINORITY all of us TRUE AMERICANs are minority's UNite UNITE UNITE before we wake up and realize it is too late!
