Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The latest news on whether Megan Henderson will leave Fox 4. For the love of all things sweet and clean, don't leave Megan!!!
  • Did you catch the story last night of the Amber Alert being issued because a daddy didn't return his kid to the mom in time? She claims he said, "You'll never see her again" but once the cops got the kid back, she wasn't even remotely angry. Hmmmm. And then I'm shocked to learn that the FBI was involved and considering "federal charges" because the dad had some guns in his home. Why guns? The reporter on the spot said, "He's apparently a gun collector." Bottom line: A dad is late in returning his kids and now we've got federal kidnapping/gun charges?
  • That was a little long for a Random Thought.
  • Crazy dream of the night: My buddies and I were going to turn into grackles at 11:00 p.m. and our mission was to fly down a fireplace that had smoke blowing out of it.
  • That is a reader submitted pic above. (Now in my deep Whataburger commercial voice: "Atta boy, Tiger.")
  • The National Geographic Channel taught me the difference between the Taliban and Al Qaeda last night. (Then someone emailed to tell me I watch the same stuff as her 60 year old dad.)
  • They convicted that guy in McKinney last night in the capital murder trial involving the death of four people. Something seems wrong about that prosecution.
  • Facebook is genius. If a person you know is on it, you'll eventually find them. Then you'll sit there and stare at the "Add Them As Friend" button deciding whether you want to come out of hiding.
  • That was a bad wreck over in Bridgeport yesterday. It's amazing how fast news like that will travel around our little back woods county.
  • I'm pretty sure that one of our local assistant DA's is a Male Ann Coulter.
  • This probably has limited interest, but my defense lawyer and prosecutor buddies will probably find this to be funny.
  • I bought some hair thinning shears and actually used them (ever so slightly) on my hair on the sides of my head. God is taking care of the top of my head.
  • AnObiter is taunting us with pics of her current trip to Hawaii. I'll try to upload some pics from Haslet later.

That story about the mother calling the police because her ex-husband was a little late in returning the child and then CLAIMING that he possibly took off with the child somewhere is a prime example that we still need changes in our laws regarding child custody matters, including visitation, etc. Although we have come quite a distance from where we were 30 years ago, there are still changes that need to be made.

I realize that it's a "double edged sword", so to speak time wise, but bringing in the FBI and issuing an Amber Alert seems to be a little much and a waste of resources until someone had checked out the validity of the claims made by this mother. Too many times it seems the parents, still bitter from the divorce itself, will go out of their way to try and hurt the other parent, any way they can. This incident that is now on the police records starts a "paper trail" that one parent could use against the other in possible future litigations, should that be a possible plan.

Re: our right wing asst DA.

OK, let's be consistent. Abortion is murder. So let's get rid of Roe vs Wade. Then let's be consistent and charge the man (assuming he is participating) and the woman who had the abortion with murder. Execute them. The Biblical eye for eye.

That includes the woman in the back alley using a coat hanger and any asst DA's good friends who fly overseas to have it done.

Let's follow our logic to its natural course, or admit we are just jerking chains for political advantage. Not that a DA would ever jerk chains.

Come out of hiding? You know you blog about your life every day. I think hiding is out of the question. Go ahead - push the button.

Decatur Boys Basketball team traveled to WF-Hirschi last night and lost a close one, 48-44. Tonight they host the #2 3A team in the state, Burkburnett......will need A LOT of fan support. Next Friday is the "big one"........Decatur vs Bridgeport @ Decatur and PACK THE HOUSE! Lots of festivities: Hamburger Dinner, DHS Band & Drum Line, DHS Girls State Champ Cross Country Team get their state rings.......come on out........maybe we'll even see Barry over on the BHS side??

924 - At least you tried to apply logic.

Do women not know what causes that condition? 47% of women who have abortions each year have had at least one previous abortion. That's a heck of a recidivism rate. Is education the key to helping such women, or would some type of training to correct the causative behavior be more appropriate?

How about education on condoms, the gift that says "I love you" to Liberals? How about informing women about the 12-15% of typical sexually active women who will get pregnant each year even though they use condoms? Or informing them of the studies that find that women who have abortions are 252% more likely to die in the following year than women who deliver their babies? Why doesn't Planned Parenthood teach women about those statistics?

Education in the form of "how to" has not worked. There is no sure-fire "safe" way to have sex. Each method taught by Liberals is like going to a blackjack seminar before hitting the casinos. They never want to discuss if you should be gambling in the first place. Ever hear "they're going to do it anyway?" After forty years of Liberal training, if "education" were the key and their methods worked, then the problem should be solved. Clearly the Liberal solutions have not worked. In fact, the false sense of security they promote with their defective methods actually increases the number of unwanted pregnancies (and therefore deaths of the women and infants involved.) Perhaps some sort of training in how to prevent the behavior that causes pregnancy and its consequences is in order.

Darwinism has come a long way. One species of mammals has learned how to insert silicon in their bodies to attract mates. If women with silicon are more attractive to males looking to breed then according to Darwin all females will eventually have silicon brests. Do I have this right.

I have been thinking about Darwinism and sex. Why are people getting fatter if slinder people are more attractive to the opposite sex? Are there any biologist out there that can explain this?

Burkburnett boys are a load! They reminded me of some JC teams that I've seen. Bridgeport/Decatur is usually a barnburner. Both games could be close.

Now Barry works(?) in Decatur so he could sit on your side. We would NOT have a problem with that!

11:04, one key point you missed about Darwinism: it takes time...you have to look at things over thousands of years. You can't look at things over 50 years and expect to see the results.

Skinny women have only been the "ideal" of beauty since last century.

Plus, as the medical field advances Darwinism takes even longer. For example, think of all the women who would have died in childbirth 100 years ago, but today they can live through C-sections thus they reproduce to pass along their small hips to the next generation...who can reproduce because of C-sections yadda, yadda, yadda,

I hate it when people quote statistics without providing the source. Sources, folks?

Anonymous said...

11:04, you need to study a bit. Humans are late to the game when it comes to evolving techniques to attract a mate. The animal kingdom has countless examples of "enhancements" to attract a mate that have evolved over a long, long time. I'll give you one and then you can realize you know many other examples. The male peacock.

I agree with 12:18
studies have shown that 79% of people surveyed prefer to have sources quoted with their statistics.
I'm just sayin'

Women don't need to improve their abilities to attract mates. All they have to do is indicate a desire to mate and a male will eventually accommodate her. It's always the men that need help attracting females:
*hair plugs
*Porsches
*penis enlargement
*Viagra
*Italian shoes
*Rohypnol (roofies)
*Law degrees

If you are a guy who has gone through divorce and custody issues in this country- nothing - absolutely nothing an estrogen crazed person does will surprise you.

Also, nothing - absolutely - nothing will repair your faith in the judicial system.

If you are a woman and have heard of testosterone poisoned men:
Dressing Like Santa and Massacring Family
Having Penis Bitten Of While Having Sex with a RACCOON
Shaving Hearts In Chest & Belly Hair
Beating the Pudding Out of Each Other
Murdering His 2.5 Year Old Son To Avoid Paying Child Support
Murdering Daughters in Honor Killing
you will REALIZE the world is chock full of DANGEROUS/CRAZY people and men are among the most dangerous especially when women were 12x more likely to be killed by a man they knew than by a stranger.

Abortion is murdering a child, baby, embryo, fetus, lump of cells, carbon organic matter... call it whatever the heck makes you feel better about it.

But it is murder.

Simple test? If you did not perform the abortion then nature takes its course and a baby is born in a few months. A baby with full rights of humanity.

Don't care what your religious/political affiliation is. Its all murder. Of what? Call "it" what you will... still murder.

Always interesting to me to see the extreme justification that goes on over this. AND those who espouse pro-choice and PETA... Ironic. And stupid.

Most of the women who have abortions don't want the children and the child would not be taken care and possibly abused. I'm not for abortion but what is the answer? Do you know any anti-abortion people willing to step up the plate and pay the expense of the pregnancy and adopt the child? I'm far too old. I'm not sure it is my right to tell someone else what they can do with their body.

I would rather be falsely accused a dozen times of a custody violation, than see one child be kidnapped or fall in harm's way because authorities were reluctant to use their resources such as an amber alert.

658 - Part of the West Texas mentality is keeping our nose out of other people's business. However, if I saw a father grab up a small child by the arm and start beating him -- not a simple paddling, but a beating -- I would step in to stop him, as distasteful as I found it. In the interest of the child, I would stop the beating. Some situations call for intervention.

It takes about three seconds to type "pro life groups" in Google and find hundreds of resources for pregnant women who want to know all the options available to them. Is it possible that most abortions are perfomed because a pregnancy would inconvenience the woman?

The ideal would be to create an environment where women who didn't want to get pregnant didn't engage in the behavior that causes it. Would you say that Liberal Democrats promote such an environment, or discourage such an environment?

Abortion is a debate that never changes anyones' mind. Everyone has their opinion. Politicians use to as a hook to get your vote.

Single issue voters are dangerous as we have learned over the last 8 yrs.
