Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • I saw that 183 was shut down in both directions this morning in Euless. What a mess. But did you see that the three car wreck at 2:50 a.m. (which left one car burnt to a crisp) was in the westbound lane but a body ended up in the eastbound lane?
  • And after I heard an update about that wreck on the radio, I learned of a "fuel spill" in Paradise at "51 and 114".
  • Early voting was at a record turnout yesterday. I thought about saying, "That's not first time Republicans coming out in droves" and then, considering the Obama hatred in these here parts, I'm not so sure.
  • I saw one guy complaining that he had to stand in line for one hour to vote. Hoss, it's early voting. Come back some other day.
  • McCain's daughter. Hey, now.
  • I was jogging yesterday when a guy runs up besides me and starts peppering me with questions about distance, speed, etc. Man, I do not want to chit chat during a jog.
  • Texas v. Texas Tech will have a 7:00 o'clock kickoff in a couple of weeks. It's still to be determined whether it will be on ABC or ESPN.
  • I had a chance to go to the Ghostbar on Saturday. I decided the bang-to-hype ratio would be too out of whack.
  • I hate those John Cornyn commercials where he looks reflectively across the Texas landscape. They are well produced, but I hate them.
  • Heard word that a Decatur High School girl received a pretty severe electrical shock last weekend while at school. No serious injury, though.
  • Heard word that the shooting of a young woman in Wise County last week was self inflicted. Not confirmed.
  • The old Halloween movie was scary. I hate scary movies.
  • It's about time for all the celebrities to go to Halloween parties in crazy outfits. Good times. (Britney flashback.)
  • A cold front is coming in tomorrow. I predict it will arrive at 11:34 a.m.
  • An extremely hot 26 year old Arkansas anchorwoman was found severely beaten in her home. Coincidentally (????), she had a small role in the movie "W" which opened last weekend.
  • Grocery store self-check out power down yesterday: The lady in front of me decided it would be a good idea to hand each package to her adolescent daughter so that she could experience the joy of scanning.

I heard the high school girl still isn't back to normal from being shocked. Wondering what the liability for the school might be?

Where can I find the rest of the pictures of the chick in the bikini? I think that I may need more random thoughts throughout the day.

By the way, I like the idea that the bikini girl has (strip table tennis), however I would be against it in the Olympics after seeing some of those androgynous Chinese females.

I was real dissppointed to learn that Krystle Gutierrez and her new mommy milk cannons had returned to Good Day on Fox 4 and I didn't read about it here. What gives?

Listening to the mainstream media these last few days I've learned a
few things about the GOP's VP nominee but also had to learn a few
things on my own. To wit:



1. From the media I learned Sarah Palin's husband has a DUI conviction
from 22 years ago. On my own I learned that Ted Kennedy (hero of last
week's tribute at the DNC) was drunk while driving a car off a bridge
in Chappaquiddick. That same crash killed a young campaign volunteer
with whom he was having an affair. Oh, and that woman was pregnant with
his child. Mr. Palin's (who is not running for office) DUI came a mere
4 years after Barack Obama (who is running for president) stopped using
cocaine and marijuana (by his own admission in his autobiography).
Shocking - it's OK for the presidential candidate to use drugs or the
party patriarch to kill someone while driving drunk yet the husband of
a VP candidate should be demonized for something done 22 years ago.



2. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant. On
my own I learned that Joe Biden's (the other VP candidate) son was paid
a large amount of money as a consultant to credit card company MBNA.
That same company had business before Senator Joe Biden concerning
regulation of consumer credit practices. After the company paid a
hefty sum to Mr. Biden's son, he voted in favor of legislation to help
that company. That same son, Hunter, is also engaged in a legal
investigation and suit for defrauding a former business partner.
Shocking - it's a crime for the republican VP candidate to have a child
who's pregnant even though it's irrelevant to how she performs her job.
It's ok, however, for the democrat VP candidate while a senator to vote
in favor of a company who paid his son over a quarter of a million
dollars.



3. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin should be considered
'selfish' for agreeing to run for VP knowing about her daughter's
condition. Knowing that her public role would bring extra scrutiny on
the family is selfish and she should have declined to protect her
child (actually heard this on ABC this weekend). Strange - the same
people who said Sarah is selfish for running for VP did not seem to
care about any impact on Chelsea when Bill Clinton had his dalliance
with Monica Lewinsky. That was a private, personal matter you see.



4. From the media I have learned to be 'concerned' that Sarah Palin
probably won't be able to manage her family and do an effective job of
being VP at the same time. Funny - I never heard anything about
Hillary's ability to support Chelsea while re-doing healthcare or any
of the other feminist icons who say you can balance work and family.
They also never mention that Barack will have to balance time with his
children while meeting with heads of rogue nations or how Joe Biden's
kids don't even have a mom and will be fighting for his time while he
hosts white house coffee fundraisers and sells nights in the Lincoln
bedroom.



5. From the media I have learned that Sarah Palin is 'too
inexperienced' to be a heartbeat-away from the presidency. Apparently
taking on corruption in your own party and running a state that's the
same size people-wise as Delaware (hint hint: that's where Joe Biden is
from) is not really experience. However, time spent as a 'community
organizer' and less than 180 days in the senate where you've authored
no significant legislation is just the type of 'change' we're looking
for from the top of the ticket. Funny - inexperience at the top of the
ticket is a mantra for 'change' and 'hope' while strong practical
everyday experience as the #2 is cause for concern.



6. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin's husband once got a
ticket for fishing without a license. I haven't heard much about the
fact that if he were still a practicing attorney, the VP candidate Joe
Biden would be dis-barred for plagiarism not once but multiple times.
It's ok to break the rules if you're a democrat candidate but not Ok
if you are the spouse of a republican candidate.



7. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin doesn't know much about
Iraq ; in fact we wonder if she even knows where it is. Sarah's son
volunteered into the US military and is now deployed in Iraq . I guess
that doesn't count. Sarah has spent more time with troops in Iraq (as
commander of the Alaska National Guard she visited Iraq last year) than
Obama has even while running for president. In fact, when Sarah went to
Iraq she spent time with the troops. When Obama went there, he skipped
a base visit to instead go work out at the Ritz Carlton.



8. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin is a 'lightweight' and she
better be a 'quick study' to keep up with this team. Funny, nobody is
talking about how, after Barack Obama had 'visited 57 states' according
to him he only had '5 more to go' or endless other stupid gaffes that
expose who he really is.



9. From the media I have learned that (gasp!), Sarah Palin's husband
was once a registered member of a 3rd party that favored states' rights
(man, this is really bad stuff). That same media has been silent to
the story that when Barack Obama announced his first senate run, he did
so in the home of William Ayers. Mr. Ayers is an un-repentant terrorist
convicted for bombing the pentagon. This same Mr. Ayers said on 9/11
that he and his group did not do enough to harm our military and he
wished he had done more. During the same time as that comment, he was
serving on a board with Barack Obama. All notes and information about
their serving together is now locked up by the corrupt Chicago machine
and reporter access to those records are being blocked by the Obama
campaign.



If we've had any doubts about the bias of the media, it's pretty clear
now where they stand. Pass this on to some of your friends who are on
the fence and who get all their information from Katie Couric, Wolf
Blitzer, Tom Brokaw and the gang. This is egregious and corrupt. The
only way to stop it is to spread information using other outlets and
make these guys irrelevant.

The 2:50 A.M. wreck on 183 is the reason it was still closed this morning at 6:00 A.M.
Police were there "reconstructing" the accident. Very bad.
It's open now.

I was leaning towards Obama because I was told that if he was elected that the world would love us again. Now Biden says that within the first 6 months that he would be tested by a crisis. Who the hell am I supposed to believe?

Did anyone hear one of Obama's speeches yesterday were he quoted Malcholm X? Boy that's encouraging!!
Demcratic (Liberal) President,
Democratic (Liberal) Senate,
Democratic (Liberal) Congress,
Democratic (Liberal) Speaker of the House,
And worst of all, Extremely Liberal, far left media. If there was ever any truth to come out of Washington, it will become extinct if Obama wins the Presidency. The media will take on and investigate guy's like Joe the Plumber all day but they won't touch Obama's relationships, money trails, record or anything remotely close to making him look worse than he is.

Republican (Conservative) President - 8 years
Republican (Conservative) Congress - 12 years (uh, I think the Senate and the House makes the Congress)
Republican (Conservative) President - 8 years
Republican (Conservative) President - 12 years
(has led to two wars, worst economic crisis since the great depression, record high deficit and national debt, corruption in US Justice Dept and Administration (firing US Attys and outing a CIA Agent for political purposes), severed relationships with countries worldwide, stipped our right to privacy with wire-taps, no-bid gov't contracts, secrecy, economic injustice, etc)

Worst of all, FOX NEWS, 1,200 Conservative - extremist right wing talk radio. The media will take Rev. Jerimiah Wright and Obama's relationship with him, but they won't touch the fact that a bi-partisan Alaskan panel found Sara Palin guilty of abusing her power in firing a State Official. Or, John McCain's involvement in the Keating 5 scandal where he supported deregulation measures on the S&L after receiving campaign donations and trips to the Bahamas from Charles Keating (who was sent to prison for his wrong doing)

ain't it a shame!

The girl in question works at David's. She waited on me Saturday and she said she could wiggle her fingers just a little. Also, that her arm muscles were mangled? Not sure on that term, but she couldnt use her arm. I've had a nerve injury, and believe me, it takes a long time to recover. I, personally, am ambivalent about her full recovery. Looks pretty serious.

11:54,Well, I take it your a typical liberal. Holy Crap, what type of trash do you read or listen too. Go back, look at the facts, address the issues and get your stories straight. Your information comes directly from the liberal media and sucks. McCain was never convicted and even the prosecutor said he should have never been a part of the investigation. Again, do some research yourself and you'll find this to be acurate. The Story on Palin is that she had every right to fire the guy and it was on budget issues and disagreements. Again, do some research yourself and you'll find this to be acurate. Therefore, zip it, until you get your facts correct. One of these day's people will pull their heads out and realize the only reason they feel tied down, beat down and other wise is because of the liberal democrats in Washington. Problem is they're to lazy, don't have the ability or resources to find out on their own. Why, because the Government say's, "Now don't you worry, you just stay right there in the ninth ward and we'll send you a check every month, you don't have to lift a finger". Hell, what do you think they'll do? There going to sit right there and do nothing then bitch because they can't find a job. And, it would seem to me to make perfectly good sense that we have a deficit with a war going on. Oh yea, get your facts right about the economy, go research and find who was at fault for the mess and who tried to stop it before it got this far. If you can't figure it out or refuse to believe it it's for a number of reason; 1). you can't read 2). you're ignorant or 3). you, like most liberals, can't handle the truth. Good luck with your research.
