Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • I thought about the old Garcia's restaurant in Decatur yesterday. Good salsa.I miss that.
  • I saw KSCS's Terry Dorsey there once
  • McCain's wheels fell off in Pennsylvania yesterday - and I absolutely love watching his wife's expression in this 36 second clip.
  • Charlie Brown's The Great Pumpkin was weird.
  • Regarding the plot to kill Obama, I bet stuff like that drives the not-crazy-Republicans crazy. Kind of one of those, "Guys, we're trying to win an election here, and you aren't helping" things.
  • I still haven't turned my home heater on. I like waking up in the middle of the night in a warm bed but in a cold room. (But it's getting close.)
  • Those that see things only in black or white haven't hung out with folks in the middle very often. It'll make the world a little grey afterwards.
  • A pink stripe was painted down Main Street by the courthouse in Decatur on Friday in honor of the fight against breast cancer. But it's off center and is bound to cause traffic confusion.
  • The Federal Reserve is expected to cut the Fed Funds rate to 1% today. (I'm not really sure what that means but it makes me sound smart to write it.) But this did occur to me: They are running out of room for any more cuts.
  • Of all the talk show hosts, Sean Hannity is the dumbest.
  • Good news for us bumpkins: I've noticed that the local lawyers at least know how to dress for court. Yesterday I saw the out of town folks looking darn near homeless: One without a jacket (incredible), one with his tie hitting him about halfway up his protruding belly (drives me nuts), and another with a jack/pant combo that wasn't worthy of Bill's Dollar Store.
  • At one point during the UT/OSU game last week, Colt McCoy was 25 of 27. That's insane.
  • Barnett Shale fun fact: "Each rig . . . directly employs about 20 workers and at least that many in related services, such as truck drivers and site-preparation workers . . . ." I was actually curious about that.
  • Bridgeport's name appears to be listed on local news weather maps more than Decatur's.
  • And Bridgeport got a huge shout out on The Ticket this morning for hitting 27 degrees at 7:19 a.m.
  • They are having trouble selling out the NASCAR race this weekend at the Speedway. I just can't get interested.
  • Not a fan of the Saw movies.
  • I was moaning the other day about T. Boone Pickens and his propensity to throw money at the Oklahoma State football program the other day, but he's doing it again: Another $63 million.

McCain shoved a HUGE foot in his mouth.

what a dummy.

It's great how Obama shoves his muslim foot in his mouth all the time but we don't hear about it!

Since those who support Obama place more importance on how things are said rather than substance and history, of course they'll overemphasize the importance of McCain's verbal gaffe. Think anybody in western Pennsylvania misunderstooded what he meant?

(a) The wheels-off McCain thing happened last week, not yesterday. I first saw it on "Real Time" Friday night.

(b) Bridgeport is on more weather maps because Decatur is too close to Denton, so sometimes they can't get the name on the map without it looking all scrunchy-like.

T. Boone Pickens donation along with approximately 20% of the OSU endowment is gone due to margin calls on the BP hedge fund. On a side note, I do not see how OSU can claim this as a donation if the money is being leveraged against in T. Boone's hedge fund. Maybe you new math retardiklans can correct us. The fund was traded by Lehman Brothers, which is no longer in business.

Cliff notes: I give you money for tax donation but I keep the money to gamble with and lose it. You get loans to construct buildings against my "donation" that I am keeping and trading and losing. When that hits the media and construction is halted, I use MY "bailout money" to "donate" AGAIN. See what I did here?

I disagree with the Hannity comment. Yea, he can un-nerve you sometimes but he backsup what he say's with facts. I realize facts don't matter to the liberal side. You tell them something with proven facts and they still want to disagree, ignorance is abundant. Yea, McCain almost stuck his foot in his mouth but Obammy hasn't been perfect either and let's not even discuss Biden, the gaff-master. Maybe McCain just has "Jet-lag" like Biden does. You may think Hannity's stupid but I wouldn't mind being as stupid as you think he is and making his money. I realize your comment was to get a few people "peeved" but I won't bother, you folks have enough to worry about and Hannity is just a commentator.

listen up you stupid c.s., those skinheads aren't "our guys". can you please explain why/how hannity is dumb..?

The Bridgeport Bulls football team is indeed the reason Bridgeport is on the map now. Ranked No.1 3A team in Texas in 2 major polls, No. 1 offense, No. 22 defense, and 1st 8-0 record in school history dating back to 1921.

Go Bulls!

Yes it is frezzing here in Bridgeport...my kids tried to wear shorts this morning. They got a WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING?

McCain is a good guy. It's tough seeing what has happened to him. His reliance on notes and too frequent "misspeaks" when he doesn't use his notes, remind me of Reagan in his later years.

Think he made the wrong turn, selling his soul to the Rove Repub and their reliance on "slash and burn" rhetoric. Had he broken cleanly with Bush, spoken clearly about how he would be different etc he would be in much better shape.

Failing a dramatic comeback this week, a real citizen is going to end his career with a bad taste in his mouth. That's a shame. I repeat he is a good guy.

I also miss that salsa! I would swear by it to cure a hangover.

"They are running out of room for any more cuts."
If it goes into negative numbers, does that mean they start giving us money?

"...

reminds me of "My Cousin Vinny" (the two utes, your Honor)

"And Bridgeport got a huge shout out on The Ticket this morning for hitting 27 degrees at 7:19 a.m."
Was that really the official temp in B'port this morning? My thermo said 35, and it's usually pretty close. An eight degree difference?


"Not a fan of the Saw movies."
Are you saying you've never...(wait for it)... seen a Saw you liked?

I'm just sayin'

I miss Garcia's too. My girlfriends and I use to go there for drinks on Friday nights after work. If you remember the loud girls in the bar area then you remember me. LOL It isn't the same now.

Word:

Being from Western Pa (Pittsburgh to be exact) we know all to well what he means. You should leave your fast food store/Walmart manager position and come on up here.

There is a sea of homes that are foreclosed/unemployment/disparate conditions... etc.

All the jobs were outsourced and we just cant wait for 8 more years of McCain/Bush failed polices. Who needs to regulate companies..... The CEO's will do whats best for the worker. .... Yeah ... RIGHT. Check out his voting records. McCain has openly denounced Unions and workers rights. Also has voted down "Buy American" products provisions.

McCain/Palin are the worst employee rights candidates ever to seek election. When it gets down to "bread & butter" issues the working man will not be voting for them. Sorry but all of us are not Joe the Plumber who is un licensed and wants to buy a company although we don't have a dime left to do it.

Anonymous said...

10:10, you won't have a dime left when Obama gets in office. You need to pay closer attention to his plan. I can assure you, it won't be two years and you steel working union guy's are going to be raising hell. I'll be watching!

Phil Berg is appealing his demand for Obama's birth certificate to the U. S. Supreme Court. Hillary might be the next president if he wins. "HOW COULD STANLEY ANN DUNHAM HAVE DELIVERED BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA JR. IN AUGUST OF 1961 IN HONOLULU, WHEN OFFICIAL UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON RECORDS SHOW HER 2680 MILES AWAY IN SEATTLE ATTENDING CLASSES THAT SAME MONTH"?

We don't have a dime now. So how are you going to get "blood from a rock"?

Its not like we are going to get worse off. What part NONE OF US have a job did you miss? What part of I am loosing my home did you miss? McCain has OPENLY said he dislikes unions and workers rights. He thinks CEO's will make the right choices.

Does the REAL average Joe believe this crap? My DAMN KIDS ARE HUNGRY NOW!!!

10:10, Your Unions killed your economy.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Unions? Ummm, they outlived their usefulness about 100 years ago. Kind of like buggy whips.

Yeah, she makes me shiver me timber when I check out her booty. Arrggghhh!!!

Huge election coming up next week, and I really couldn't care less. Both candidates are talking change, and we won't see very much of it at all. There is one truth I believe in... Politicos are Politicos, no matter the affiliation.

and lastly, 27 degrees is a bit far off. 30 degrees... From the official NWS website... (but click now, because the info is updated continually...)

10:52. I'm sorry for your situation, but it sounds like you're lining up to be one of the recipients of the "tax cuts" Obama wants to give using some of my hard earned money. Taking more from me to give to you....ya, that's fair!!

Anonymous said...

10:52, you need a $50/hr. union job sweeping floors or something.

1134 you are a total dumbass, not even smart enough to realize it's the union that priced your way overpaid asses out of the market. who wants that shit you union people build anyway.? i think ford's, chevy's and dodge's are the worse vehicles on the market today, lose value quicker than all others and break down more..maybe you should get out of the union for your families sake.

The unions killed all the factories in the Northeast. Companies either moved to the south or overseas. Not the fault of the government, the economy has sucked there for 30 years.

Anonymous said...

Government please help me. I'm too good for a non-union job. I have no edumacation but deserve an honest union wage to feed my damn children.

wordkyle said...

1010 - I would respond, but you've already been pwned by others. Suffice to say, only Liberal Democrats would describe McCain's slight verbal mistake as "wheels off." The rest of your post is simply a partisan rant -- energetic, but unconvincing as any sort of proof.

By the way, you seemed to have a condescending tone when you mentioned fast food and Wal-Mart. That inherent Liberal snottiness doesn't go well with the professed Liberal concern for the common man. I wonder which is the true sentiment?

Nothing like scab labor comments. More than likely written during work hours on the counties money.

So men and women who have lost their jobs due to corporations going overseas are lazy and want hand outs. Good Americans who have never collected a dime from anyone. Boy you dick weeds in Wise County really don't have a clue.

Anonymous said...

Man you whiners kill me. Suck it up you sissies. You are in your situation because of you and your past. I didnt make you buy a house you cant afford. I didnt put you in a dead end job. I didnt make your kids go hungry. But you sure as hell want the government to bail your ass out, because its somebody else's fault. I have worked two jobs for 26 years and never been out of work in my life. So I guess I owe you and Obama some of my extra money that I've put back. You get out of life what you give. Its not the government job to take care of you. You are responsible. Be a man and stop blaming others.

Unions did not hurt American business. The high wages paid to union workers created a large community of blue collar workers who took those high wages and spent them on cars, washing machines, houses, and all the other products produced by the factories. The owners of the factories got rich because of this huge demand. Looking back, the struggle between labor and factory owners produced compromises that helped both sides. Then along came NAFTA, free trade and illegal workers crossing our borders. Both political parties in America have sold out American workers (and American manufactures) for ten pieces of silver. No, I am not a liberal because of my view on uniona. I am a conservative voting for Palin and that old grey headed guy.

Well, you must keep up with this stuff. Give examples, links, magazine volumes, newspaper dates and section/page numbers. Come on, if you want me on this band I/blog readers/America wants to know these reports. Giterdone! You need to convince the ones that think Palin is a Mooselum and only wants destruction of the American way of life in order to become hunter and gatherers as in the past. Well, anyway, wheres the beef and the proof? Should be easy for a poster like you. Use Jarhead, WordKyle, MSChief, Dingy Crane, RR, baby smoker, all your sources, as long as they have documentation to these "mouthfoot balls" and quotes. My God, we know the Liberal Media will not report any Liberal screwups, only the false, madeup, overtrumped up, fantasy, Rush "facts" O'reilly "facts" Hannity "facts" that you, as a rabid right ring radical, knows to be true.

Links you mouthballs!!!!!! Let us see'em, read'em, where to check'em out.... Mouthy Mouthy, but hath no clouty..... As Vice-President Cheney might say: GFY! If you can't put it up.

wordkyle said...

I hate doing this on a post that's two days old, but 826 reminded me.

Obama's socialist roots are documented here. Yes, I know it's a blog, but it provides links to source documents. For those who hate to read, theres a video here.

Perhaps more interesting than this hard evidence is how incriminating websites were "scrubbed" to remove information. Sort of like nineteen minutes of tape back in '74....

You can't say you weren't warned.

Anonymous said...

Real documentation Turd. That link starts of with "you can access our private" so it hold not water. Real links that have documented proof to you claims. Not Right-Wing BS. Refer to Cheney comment agin. After the election, you should move to Oklahoma to be with your own kind.

wordkyle said...

Ah, 713 - That post was meant for others, not you. When I say the links were to "source documents" I mean the links that say things like

* "Link to the New Party Update," a document put out by the socialist New Party which refers to Obama as a member; and to the
* "Link To The November 1996 Progressive Populist Article," another "progressive" publication that refers to Obama as a member of the NP; or to the link that said
* "Link To DSA Article" (DSA=Democratic Socialists of America,) which also refers to Obama as a member of the NP.

Those publications, by the way, are from the far Left. They claim Obama as one of their own. As I said, my post -- with a proper disclaimer -- was for those who can still think for themselves. Clearly that's not you. Confused people often react with anger, so I apologize for causing you distress.

Those who have a touch more perseverance than you can look at the information and decide for themselves.
