Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • The Cowboys are on tonight. Don't watch it. None of the starters will play.
  • Man, there was no news yesterday. A change in policy about tailgating at Texas Stadium was one of the biggest stories. (We even had a Fox 4 reporter broadcasting live from the empty and dark Cowboys' parking lot this morning.)
  • I've always jacked around with that Twitter thing, but with high school football starting up, I thought it would be neat to have updates "tweeted" in from Wise County games. If you've got a cell phone, a Twitter account, are attending a Wise County High School game, and would be willing to text in updates to Twitter, give me a shout at blog2 @ wisecounty.com (no spaces)
  • Michael Phelps is going to host Saturday Night Live. That will fail. (Some girl told me the other days that she would be willing to have Phelps' "fish babies." So confusing.)
  • Watched "Hard Knocks" on HBO last night. Man, that team drops a lot of F Bombs. Coaches, players and owner were the culprits.
  • Someone told me that Devon Energy plans to build a 50+ story building in Oklahoma City. What? Cottondale not good enough?
  • Do you think George Mitchell thinks he may have sold out to Devon just a little too early? (That was 2001 for $3.5 billion).
  • Got a report that a vehicle belonging to a government agency in Wise County was parked at the Southlake Town Center during the middle of the day yesterday. (Vague enough for you?)
  • I don't know who Jodie Marsh is, but "hey, now."
  • I think I figured out why Bill Clinton is such a good speaker. He knows how the audience is going to react to his lines and he mimics them. For example, if he drops a line which he knows will get a smile, he pauses and smiles with them. Same thing for lines that will cause a look of concern.
  • If Bill Clinton could be the presidential nominee this time, he would win easily, wouldn't he?
  • I successfully replaced a taillight last night on my beaten up SUV. Taillights are easy. Headlights are not.
  • From the Morning News: "As part of an ongoing investigation, Parker County authorities arrested at least five people Wednesday on suspicion of conspiring to steal chemicals from locations across North Texas to produce amphetamines." Assuming those facts are correct (a big "if"), those people weren't arrested for possession of dope. They were arrested because police think those folks were thinking about stealing chemicals that might be used to cook dope. And that's after six months of using your tax dollars.
  • Pics of Tony Romo's new house. Channel 5's Mike Synder even reported the other night that "It's even got enough room for when Jessica Simpson is in town." And that wasn't fake ad-libbing. It was part of his scripted story.
  • Baylor v. Wake Forest tonight at 7:00. I'm thinking about doing a silly "live blog" for the three of you interested. Hey, it's a celebration of life. Or something.
  • A while back I was tracking that lady who was rowing across the Pacific. It's been 95 days and this week she will arrive in Hawaii.

Tony bought a new "white house" for the team. Wonder if he will go old school and invite Michael, Alvin, Deon, Nate and the rest of the gang over after practice for hanky-panky, slap and tickle time with the strippers, like in the old days.

Rock me.

No doubt Clinton is probably the smoothest speakers to ever come along but he is also a lying sack of immoral she it.

He sat there on National TV looking us all in the eye and lied to us all in order to cover up his infidelity to his wife and country.

He would win easily because haven't we all been in his shoes in one way or another at one time?

Yeah, Clinton would win--and for all the wrong reasons (charisma, speaking ability, looks, charm, etc., etc., etc.). Those that actually have substance rarely get any chance nowadays. Let's go back to the "smoke-filled rooms" and the party bosses. The bosses may have been crooked, but they chose squeaky-clean candidates who wouldn't embarass the party--a surprisingly effective system. Case in point--Harry Truman--one of our best, "recent" presidents, regardless of his party. The more "democratic" we have made the nomination selection, the more things have gone downhill, because it has become a looks and popularity contest, with little emphasis on substance.

"Hillary Rocked the House"
Jees, that was a Presidential comment if I ever heard one. NOT!!
Now, let's get back to that "is Obama ready to lead question".
Let's not forget the true fact that the next President will inherit what Bush has done and take credit. As Bush inherited Clintons mess. I'm not saying Bush has been the greatest but it is a fact that due to the slow, overpaid, congress and senate, change does not move as fast as it needs to and never comes around until the President that enacted it is out of Office. Side note; I do believe Biden did a good job last night, he's a good speaker even though he slips up at times and not everything he said was accurate according to record. I am still wondering about his comment months back when he stated he would run for Office on McCains ticket if ever asked. Bidens probably a good guy. I've always wanted to sit down and drink a beer with Clinton and just shoot the bull. I think he might be hilarious when not in public. However, I never voted for him and still wouldn't and will not vote for Obama because there is something there that just doesn't add up for me personally.

Mike Snyder is such a beating. I hear his daughter is a stripper somewhere in Dallas.

Southlake's City Hall and several Tarrant County offices, as well as training rooms, are located at Southlake Town Center. There may have been a valid reason for a government agency employee to be there.

Is Hard Knocks filmed at Chili's in Decatur. The F Bomb flows freely in there as well.

It's a shame that vulgar language seems to be an accepted form of communication these days.

to my way of thinking clinton and his people were more responsible for 911 than anyone else. 911 certainly has caused many problems for bush, regardless of blame. most likley clinton or obama would not have gone on such a massive terrorist search and destroy mission like bush..what if all the terrorist bush killed etc., were still out there..?

Bill and Hillary made a fatal error when they mis-judged the allegiance of black America. They thought they had the Afro-American vote in their "pocket", but the one variable that they did not count on was the Afro-American voters care more about the prospect of a black POTUS than they care for the Clintons. Bill and Hillary, just like Oprah, want "worshipers" not supporters---they didn't get em' in the black communities and that is one of the biggest reasons Bill was so bitter when Hillary lost the nomination to Obama.

"Dubya" is a little man with a pea brain. His administration has held our country hostage using the 911 tragedy. In less than 8 years our country has gone from a budget surplus to a deficit that will take decades to repay just to get back to even. Most of you so-called "conservatives" have no concept of the damage that our country's economy has suffered because the Republican administration had total control of the executive and legislative branches of the government until a little over a year ago. The judicial branch has been damaged significantly on the federal level, but it can be repaired more quickly, I hope, if Senator Obama is elected. The problem I have with the Clinton approach in the presidential primary process that is just wrapping up, is the way they have so successfully used race to damage Senator Obama. When millions of white men, and Hispanic voters, too, stampede for Hillary, if you cannot see the underlying racist attitudes, you have on a blindfold. What terrifies you so-called "conservatives", most of whom are latent racists, who feel like women are second class citizens, is the possibility that an intelligent black man, who is not a racist, who treats women as equals, might be given a chance to use his judgment, which I believe will turn out to be judgment that is equal to or even better than yours. We shall see, won't we.

I'm I the only person in the whole wide little world that is concerned the dude who might (not too likely though)be POTUS had exactly one year of experience before he started campaigning?
Everyone is so caught up in this new fairy tale that the media won't call any part of this anomaly known as Obama into question until he loses for sure and for certain.

Anonymous said...

Anybody notice how close we are to having the names Obama(Osama)Bi(n La)den, and Huesein on the ticket running for President of The United States? Man, that is scarry!! Especially after 911. What is wrong with everyone????

And Obama Huesein being nominated by acclimation? My distrust of the Clintons tells me that she will come back later and say that he was never VOTED in as the delegate. It gets back to what the defination of "is" is.

9:56...Several statements in your post just piss me off. First, W has kept the terrorist from holding us hostage. Do you not remember the fear of 9-11? Have you been afraid since 9-11? Didn't think so...the only fear you may have is that the French don't think too highly of us. The bulk of the budget deficit was created by having to rebuild the military that was dismantled under Clinton. It is much easier to balance a federal budget if you don't fund the military but eventually, we either pay for the defense of this country or we speak Russian. While some conservatives may be "latent racists", what is Rev Wright and his congregation? You imply that conservatives treat women as second class citizens but ignore the fact your messiah cheated and lied not only to his wife but to the country as well. Is there any greater sign of disrespect toward women than this? If someone, anyone, could point to a single accomplishment by Sen Obama, I could take his candidacy seriously but as it stands, he is just so much fluff and no substance. It is just as pathetic to vote for someone just because he is black as it is not to vote for someone for the same reason.

Yup, if Bill Clinton was running he'd win easily!

Tony's house is pretty nice but certainly not particularly extravagant. If this house was on either coast, it would cost $2 million. House prices in Texas are just vastly less than in desirable places to live.

Whether we like Clinton or not, the guy just charismatic.

And he does know how to get the attention of an audience. Compare his approach to McCains. McCain is equivilent to a dead piece of wood. Emphasis on "dead".

Hey, Barry, you know how to get "our" attention too!! Get us all started on religion and we are baited, hook line and sinker.

You guys are doing fine without me. If you want the truth about the Clintons, look at remarks made by other Democrats during their primaries. They know the Clintons better than anyone else.

Bill Clinton shows how far a glib tongue can get a politician. Obama learned that lesson well. (He's also an articulate, bright and clean Afro-American, according to his running mate.)
