Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Boy, the TV stations were in full "Arctic Blast" mode this morning.
  • There has to be something to film other than a sand track on days like this.
  • If I was a school superintendent, I'd be a little nervous that everything freezes up at the exact moment everyone should be arriving for school.
  • There's someone playing blackjack and drinking at this very moment in Vegas. Heck, that might be going on in Rhome right now.
  • I've seen Jimmy Johnson on some infomercial about stock market investing. Cheezy.
  • I hate the first full week after the holidays.
  • There was a story in the Star Telegram yesterday about a couple adopting nine kids -- mostly kids who were abused or neglected. Man, that makes me feel like a slug.
  • I wish Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp would take over as head coach. That would make the Evil Empire more fun to hate.
  • I always like the Messenger's "year end wrap-up" issue.
  • Ever think about completely changing your life? Anyone have the courage to do it?
  • I'm thinking about banning the 2012 doom and gloom commenter. Either he's a nutcase that believes it, or he's trying to be funny --- which he isn't.
  • Any ad on a web page that automatically starts playing video or audio should be banned.
  • Saw the Timothy McVeigh traffic stop video the other day (really wasn't much to it.) But I had forgotten he was stopped because he didn't have a license plate on the rear of his car. All that planning and he overlooks that detail?
  • Two guys died in the crash of an old plane near Justin this weekend. I had gone through Justin about an hour before the crash. That's really not that big of coincidence, is it?
  • I think the airport is the one off of 730. I always thought it was odd that there were "low flying aircraft" warnings along that road.
  • I've never had a desire to get a pilot's license.
  • I'll admit it. I got a big bag of nothing this morning.

You use Firefox, Barron. Flashblock and Ad Block Plus, and you'll never see nor hear an ad again.

"I'm thinking about banning the 2012 doom and gloom"

couldnt agree with you more!!!

That 2012 stuff must come from a book or article by Gerald Celente who supposedly has predicted correctly so many other things. I say don't borrow trouble from tomorrow.

Please, for the love of God, BAN HIS/HER

You do not have a big bag of nothing. You posted three reasons to "keep on keeping on" at the top.

Also please ban the "Doom and Gloom" postings. Firstly Bush is out of office so things are looking better for America. But do not ban all the nut cases (speaking of myself) were will we go?

I can't believe you haven't picked up on John Travolta son dying in the Bahamas. How sad. Only 16 years old.

Saw the show last night about the 2012 there is a lot of reaching out there to connect those dots!I mean I have one helluva Imagination and I couldnt have come up with some of the comments and "connections" they do! I belive that the doom and gloom poster really belives this as THE END date,,,,yet even with that History channle documentery even they state on more than one occasion that even the "EXPERTS" dont belive it all comes to an end but that it is surly going to be hotter and tuffer esp on our farmers in the up and coming years after the 2012 of 12 date!

So last night while watching that show I predicted that there would be a lot of comments on the Doom sayer Does this make me a Prohfit? Just asking...lol BAN his/HER Comments on here!!

By the way I have a question regarding a very touchy subject esp in this wisecounty forum! RACE issue
I saw where over five days or so ago the Govenor Blagavicjh appointed someone to the contreversal seat of OBAMA to another "person of color" whom then had another Black person stand right there beside him and make a seris of mis-appropriate comments He said and I think I got it right here

Dispite the appointment by controversil govenor Blagobitch please dont and I quote "LYNCH the appointee" for the Lynching of the appointer ....it went somthing like that! anywyas Why the double standard with the Lynch and the N word amongst "people of color"? I have seen the clip played over and over on many differnt news channels and yet not one of thesenews commentators has said anything regarding that Mans comments!
Had it been a white person say that I belive they would be in the same place as the little sports commentator whom made the comment about Tiger Woods...out of work!

So why is it Ok for people of color to use the Lynch and call oneanother nigger if its not acceptable for a white person too?

Just curious about who sets the rules and these blatent double standards?

Ban the 2012 guy because he's not funny?

Do you think you are funny, Barry?

I don't really see why he bothers you that much.

You will see that he is right one day though. You all will see.

"Boy, the TV stations were in full "Arctic Blast" mode this morning."

I love how our tv stations go absolutely nuts whenever we get any type of snow or ice. They have their reporters spread all over the area reporting on basically nothing. As you also mentioned, they love to show the same videos over and over. It always seems to be some sand truck being loaded.

i was reading up on some planet called hecolubus (some giant ass planet thats s'posed to come close enought to earth that its gravitational pull is gonna have a huge impact on our planet, causing earthquakes and etc, they say its already having an effect on earth due to the massive size of that planet, idk.. read up on it bcus its kinda interesting) and no the end of days is not on 12 21 2012, 1000 years of peace?? did you forget that???

Uh, I kind of like the 2012 guy. Hey, you're also the guy who doesn't think George Carlin was funny. Go figure.

A lot of gays lack a proper sense of humor. Maybe you should check your closet and see which side of the door you're on.

How about being a school superintendent and now that you have all the students/teachers at school the roads could continue to get bad throughout the day. When do you make the decision to send them home early to avoid dangerous driving conditions for students, parents & buses?

Oh, Big, bad Barron is going to pull the lever on one of his followers. Poor 2012, he will be so said. Liberal Lean has now officially went PC.

2012 Person is genius.

2012 Person can post on my blog anytime they want!

mzchief said...

To Barry...
Consider the fact that you allowing the 2012 comments is a public service because it is that much less time the author is spending out and about among normal people.
*;)

The whole 2012 BullSnot is just that, BS. The 2012 commentator does not bother me. However, very little that happens on the Interweb bothers me because, after all, it is JUST the Interweb.

Can we please have turf before 2012

I guess all the Banjo comments, I cried through the whole movie or were drugs and alcohol involved be on the PC Hit list next.

Yeah! Putting the same old tired, cliched line in every one of your posts is so...unoriginal
I'M JUST SAYIN'

(unoriginal - sounds like something you go see the doctor about. "Doc, I think I got unoriginal."
"Yeah? Who did you get it from?")

Speaking of the Messenger, did you know that the Index won't print "controversial" letters to the editor? Seems they only want "good news." How in the world do Index editors think problems will be solved if they don't allow people to discuss them?

Anonymous said...

WHY would the Messenger not be around this time next year!? If ya know something, then speak......if not, no need to throw out carrots to see if something bites! ( Like I just did)

Anonymous said...

Ban a commentator as opposed to edit/censor his submission? Oh dear!

A great deal of the post here are not funny. Most are depressing (seeing how little we have evolved)

Yet, Barry ever once in a while there is one that will put you on the floor, holding your side, thus worth the effort, the wait.

And where do you stop?

If you start on this journey, will you move Wordkyle closer to the front?

The scuttlebut is that the Messenger and the Index are both hurting and are about to merge. At least thats what my sources in the county are telling me.

chupacabra said...

2:37 been wondering when that would happen for awhile.

Speaking of cliches- where did Barry get that barrel he's been scraping the bottom of lately?

I'm truly amazed not only at Barry for wanting to delete a silly reference to a date but at the rest of you for getting upset over something that hasn't hurt one single person on this blog in any way shape or form.

I've followed this blog since it started and I'm continuously appalled and saddened by the fact that Barry let's a multitude of racial as well as vulgar comments directed specifically at various individuals go by as if it is perfectly normal.

How many times have we all read a post where the words Nigg..,Pus.. or Shi. has been used. Many times directed towards another person on this blog.

Do they get deleted?

It's really hard for me to believe that you all find some reference to a silly date more offensive and distressing than being called one of those names above and it passing the acceptable comments review board.

Someone's priorities are somewhat out of order if you asked me.

December 21 2012 hasn't hurt anyome...yet...lol

Ever think about completely changing your life? Anyone have the courage to do it?

Yep. Quit the job after 20 years and started law school. In a couple of years I'll be swimming with Barry and the rest of the sharks. THAT takes courage...
