Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Southwest is now flying to Boston which reminded me that the Wright Amendment is gradually being repealed. Was the phase out period five years or ten years? And it seems like the legislation is about five years old.
  • I could get that answer within 20 seconds, but I don't want to use the Google.
  • Fox 4 News is in hi-def as of yesterday.
  • Megan Henderson, who I wanted to see in hi-def, was not on the news this morning.
  • It seems like the comments written here yesterday were particularly hateful. Not sure what caused the Bubba Factor to get out of whack.
  • I saw Milk with my "companion" last night. (Ok, it's a cute little blonde gal so everyone calm yourselves.)
  • Milk is great. Sean Penn is greater.
  • Milk also has old news footage of Anita Bryant, a lady I hadn't thought of in years, and her anti-gay campaign. (Her life, as profiled on Wikipedia, would be a pretty good movie in itself, and the "pie in the face" footage was huge news when I was a kid.)
  • I love it when movies based upon real life show photos at the end of the "real people" upon which it was based. (That was a hard sentence to word, and I'm still not pleased.)
  • Jarhead is going to end up on the news some day in a road rage incident. Case in point. But I still don't understand what started it all yesterday.
  • "Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," - Our new Attorney General proclaimed yesterday.
  • The world will not end in 2012?
  • You can go to Texas Stadium one last time this weekend (free entry/free parking) and buy some crap. I might do it.
  • The roads around Grapevine Mills Mall are confusing. But one did lead me by a place called Cutie Pie's that I had heard about.
  • Some are wondering if Tech will fire Mike Leach. If I'm the Athletic Director, I'd be the one worrying about my job.
  • Ever thought about Heath Ledger's The Joker and Beetlejuice in the same photo?
  • Everyone tells me I would like Step Brothers.
  • I hate this time of year for some reason.

Step Brothers is a horribly gay movie. Don't waste your time!

The 'attack chimps' owner is on msnbc video- call her crazy lady for short. She admits to bathing and sleeping with the thing and watch 10 seconds of the interview with her and you'll absolutely know what else she did with it.

Food for thought--If this nation was sooooo bad (racially, that is), how did Obama get elected? Obviously a lot of "white" (we're ALL different shades of brown, by the way) folks voted for him. That fact logically shoots down all these statements that are being made (by his preacher, etc.). In fact, all of those people who spouted all that "the white man is keepin' the black man down" stuff during his campaign should now go on the air and say--"well, I guess all I said was wrong". Get over it (all this talk of racism). And remember my best definition of a racist--one who brings up race all the time in conversations. THAT means our minorities are the last true racists in our country (with the exception of a small group of crazy, Neo-Nazi types).

Our hope is that our new Attorney General is a better lawyer than philosopher. You are allowed ethnic discussions if you are grandstanding as an ethnic speaking of Black History Month. We all know the double standard in this country will not allow just anyone to have a meaningful conversation concerning race or ethnic topics. The Attorney General needs to wake up while he enjoys his free ride.

The new attorney general is an idiot and I certainly hope he take alot of cr*p for his comments yesterday. This is a nation of "cowards", I think not!

That Tyson cat is pretty funny. I'm googling him to see if I can hear more.

I wonder if Jarhead ever wonders why he elicits so much anger from people.

So what if 2012 is the end of the world. I just think of it as a permanent vacation.

Neil deGrasse Tyson - I've seen this guy on talk shows several times and he is great. He talks science in a very conversational, easy-to-understand manner, and for an astrophysicist, has a great sense of humor about his subject.

"...a place called Cutie Pie's that I had heard about."
You didn't scald yourself with the hot water from the faucet, did you? Oh, I forgot, you never wash your hands after going to da baffroom. Haw haw!

"...and the "pie in the face" footage was huge news when I was a kid."
Pow! Right in the kisser!

Yeah we are pretty much a nation of cowards and gullible ones at that. After all we elected this socialists and then expected him not to push socialism.

We are afraid of our own shadows...I am surprised that we can still find the nerve to venture out of our homes. There are exceptions of course but more and more of us are afraid of life, afraid we will have to be responsible for ourselves and afraid to suggest to people that they aren't entitled to stuff other people have to work hard and produce. The applause for the giant mortgage giveaway yesterday is a good indicator of just how far we have fallen from self reliance, acceptance of consequences for our actions and individualism. We are more like lemmings than lions. It's a shame really. American home of the timid.

Jarhead said...

Maybe because there are so many angry people in the world?

Just a guess.

Anonymous said...

Phil,
Why don't you get the hell out of our country, since you think it is so bad. I didn't vote for Obama, the stimulus packages or any of the other bailouts. I pay my taxes, last year I gave over $9,000 to The Child Welfare of Wise County. My family and I live our lives the best way possible, we grow the majority of our own food, we raise all of our own meat and we embrace the 2nd amendment. What have you done other than b*tch and moan? IDIOT!

Jarhead said...

I rest my case.

Has it ever occurred to anyone that a supreme being (God, for example?) powerful enough to "end the world" on a whim probably does not even keep track of time using a calendar?

Anonymous said...

If this is a Country of Cowards it all begins in Washington D.C., that's where the Cowards hide. Tells you what they truly know about good management, it begins at the top and rolls down from there. Not to mention the cowardness of the "Stimuls Pacakge". So I guess all in all him saying that could be referred to as "the pot calling the kettle black", no racial tones intended of course.

Jar, think you are right in your 8:48 post. Lots of angry folks in this world.

This blog is rather turning angry too.

Guess it entertains our blog author.

By the way, I like your new little graphic.

Cute.

Collectionsite said...

Phil very interesting look at life to say the least. But I can honestly say everyone I have met in Wise County is not even close to what you described. And I know many people from both ends of the political spectrum and the economic scale.

Actually they get up every day and do the best they can with the cards life have dealt them. And would lend a hand to any neighbor.

And me personally do not mind helping people in need. Maybe its that whole Christian belief thing I was taught.

Seems to me that the only thing we are entitled to is death in the end. And how you lived your time that you were blessed with is what really counts.

Anonymous said...

Jarhead I hope you are not one of those drivers that stay in the left lane as people jockey to get around.

Also I know you must be used to the middle finger but the V with licking thing must be his way of calling you the vaginal word. And having met you. It would have been an accurate description.

9:36,

I apologize for having made such a bad impression on you.

I wish I could be liked by everyone I come in contact with, but sometimes my directness turns people off. It's a character flaw, but I've found that one never gets what one wants by beating around the bush.

We tend to surround ourselves with like-minded people. As an "anonymous," you're in the right place.

Best of luck to you. I hope if we ever cross paths again you'll identify yourself so I can make amends. Until then...

Jarhead, you've made your case. There are a lot of angry people out there. Wowzy.

Arguing, fighting, name calling, and general poor behavior is more fun than sex mostly cause it lasts longer and you can do it with more than one person at a time.

Jar,there is a huge difference between being direct and being an ass. I do acknowledge your apology.

Only watch Step Brothers if you love the "f" word because that is 90% of the dialog. Wasted good money and time on it and I only stayed 10 minutes and got my money back. However, the 13 year old boys next to me thought it was hilarious. Now you know its mentality!

Jarhead said...

Feel free to email me and let me know who you are. Email is on my blog. I'm happy to discuss whatever it was that I did to upset you this much.

I'm not above admitting when I'm wrong. It doesn't happen too often, but I have done it on occasion. haha

Building bridges. People helping people. Kumbayah. Can't we all just get along? You had me at "hello." You are my true north. You complete me. I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her. Nobody puts Baby in a corner. You're my knight in shining armour. Soylent Green is people! [had to throw a Chuck Heston quote in there]Remember, it is not how much you love, but how much you are loved by others! Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You can be my wingman any time. Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!

And all that stuff.

It's too bad there were not hate crime laws back in the day of the pie in the face of Anita Bryant. I would love to have seen her sue the crap out of that liberal weenie pussy.I wonder if he went on to get his law degree and defend drunk drivers in Wise County.

One of the many problems with the economy right now is that everyone keeps looking at Wall Street as if it is the “all knowing judge of all things”. For Christ sake Wall Street judges everything on weather it help them make money with out doing any work. As long as the country focuses on making money “on paper” versus making consumables we will never pull out of this.

Hey 11:28 “…The revolt has begun. Check out the headline on Drudgereport.” The opening line in this report is “The trading floor buzz on whether the government's plan to save the economy will actually help the markets” in the short term the “markets” should not the priority – they help create this mess…..i think the revolt has not started based on the fact the everyone in Washington except Obama is acting like business as usual… Dem want to spend and Rep want to cut taxes.. same old B.S.

12:54, Do you think companies are going to start hiring knowing that the stock exchange continues to tank every day because of the socialistic policies of Obammy? They need to hear good news, not how we are going to bail out losers and punish the achievers.

Anonymous said...

I bet every person who says Obama is 'Socialist" also thought going to war against Iraq in 2003 was a good idea.

It demonstrates the inability to discern facts from propaganda.

Neil deGrasse Tyson gave a lecture at UTA Tuesday night. It was free and open to the public. He was entertaining and provided a fascinating look at science. Well worth the drive down to Arlington.

Anonymous said...

I bet every person that thinks Obammy is not trying to enact socialism doesn't know what it is and how it is not the way to govern. Even Putin is warning Obammy not to enact socialism. It's pretty profound when a communist warns of socialism.

1:43 - you hit the problem on the head - we have evolved to the point where companies take there cues from the stock market instead of the other way around - so as long as wall street is unhappy - we all will be unhapyy - i am not saying that can change - but that is a big difference between now and decades ago and another reason why the it will be more difficult to pull out of this mess - everyone (including me) is looking for wall street to get well to get some of our lost money back - what a mess.

Anonymous said...

2:02 - Of course, I am sure you realize Putin is referring to Government control of the banks, not the stimulus pkg, don't you?
and Obama opposes that action, but Republicans, yes Republicans want that option "on the table".

And, I am sure you are aware that the Bush administration already partially socialized the banks by capital injection. Aren't you? Because if you did, you also know that under your definition Bush would be a socialist.

You align yourself with communist Vlaldimir Putin over the President of the United States because you somehow think he justifies the propaganda you want to believe.

President Obama is taking fast drastic action to stop the disaster from getting worse.
You may disagree with his economic philosophy, but the Freidman laisse faire Conservative Republican economic philosphy is a failure. Alan Greenspan said exactly that in his Congressional testimony.

To continue with the same Republican economics after it failed would be asinine.

President Obama is doing exactly what he said he would do when he got into office. That is why I voted for him.

Anonymous said...

Alan Greenspan also said that he thinks the government should nationalize the banks. So go ahead and use him as your financial guru and the reason for your hatred of Republicans. See what it gets you.
