Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Apparently the Fort Worth Zoo was the last place that you wanted to be yesterday. (And the director of the zoo was on WBAP this morning saying there is no limit as to how many people they will allow in at one time.)
  • I'm not sure I want my president taking time out to fill out his basketball bracket on ESPN. And I'm not sure I want him to have the time to form an opinion on whether Duke has a good perimeter game.
  • There's something weird about the ruling yesterday that a Richland Hills girl died of an ecstasy overdose. You never, ever see that. (The sixteen year old was discovered dead the morning after spending the night with her boyfriend. Seems normal.)
  • Olan Mills fun.
  • There's a cat next door to my office that has a cast on one leg.
  • The congressional AIG hearing yesterday was silly. They bring in the CEO of the company who was brought in after the fact for a salary of $1 a year and berate him?
  • But the CEO did blame "credit default swaps" for the near death of AIG. I think I'm going to explain those later. Really.
  • I get suckered into "Little Children" whenever I see it on TV. And, man, it has a couple of crazy scenes in it.
  • We have a new picture of Charles Manson. Isn't it odd that he has been in prison all these years for simply planning the murders but not taking part in them?
  • As a kid, I watched "Helter Skelter" at a friend's house and then had to walk home in the dark. I didn't think I'd make it.
  • There are lots of different sizes of ants. (I'm having an issue with some little bitty ones at home.)
  • A pantie thief steals hundreds of panties for Victoria's Secret in North East Mall? Don't we hear that story about once every three months? Is there a black market for underwear that I was not aware of? Shouldn't I be aware of it? What?
  • Baylor beat Patrick Ewing and the Georgetown Hoyas last night in the NIT - its first post season win in 59 years. But then I started to do the math when forward Kevin Rogers said, "My grandma's not even 50."
  • You want to be nervous the next time you fill up with gas? You will be.

I like the Australian girls posted yesterday. I also like Australia as a source of what is happening in Washington. The Congress and AIG are a bunch of crooks telling on each other. Here is one:

Geoff Elliott, Washington correspondent | March 19, 2009
Article from: The Australian

BARACK Obama and New York senator Charles Schumer, leading the charge to recoup $US165million ($250million) in bonuses paid to employees of AIG, received nearly $US150,000 in campaign donations from the bailed-out US insurance giant.

You may call me Your Majesty. In fact, I insist. said...

Manson doesn't look as crazy as he used to.

Good show yesterday in Washington while the clowns do all but beat up the $1.00 a year guy who is trying to deal with AIG. The clowns that did not read the bill that allowed the bonuses to be paid.

And not they are going to get it back. Sure. What staged bull sh#t!

And the money was about what a baseball players signs up for while they give away more to ACRON and other crap!

If this doesn't stop today, the fire department will be called to Congress to put out all the "pants on fire"!

There's a cat next door to my office that has a cast on one leg.

"You didn't see nuttin', so just keep yer yapper shut, Fluffy!"
Triple Fake dog from yesterday's sick story

I'll bet the first thing you asked the cat was if he had representation.
Hw did the cat get to work on just three good legs?
I told the cat "Don't stick your paw in there, the mice are out for blood. But would it listen - Nooooo!"

Loved the Olan Mills fun. The captions under the pictures sounded Barryesk until one of them included "both my sisters". Not you I guess.

Don't blame me, I didn't vote for him.

Would you want Manson living next to you? I think he is right where he should be...until he dies

The Olan Mills pics and comments were a great way to start the day...

Yea, the AIG format was quite the joke yesterday. Everyone is guilty and trying to blame one another. I did think it would be funny though if Liddy would have told Barney Frank the following; "Look here you short, fat, pompus ass, you're as guilty as anyone for making sure you're boyfriend was taken care of over at Fannie Mae. What's you're sissy ass jumping on me for you lisping a&%hole. You and all these other Sh8t for brain morons in Washington need to quit thinking you're above the law and thinking the American tax payers don't see through your pathetic B.S. You all make me sick! Not a one of you can "nut-up" and take blame for anything, you bunch of pansy-asses. And on top of that, they just brought me into this pile of crap so don't think for one minute you're going to sit there and point you're manicured hands at me and talk to me like I'm an idiot. You my friends are the idiots. You my friends are the ones who passed the stimulus bill without reading it. You my friends are the ones living on the Government teet provided by all hard working Americans. You my friends wouldn't know how to work in the public sector if all you had to do was sleep. The money paid out in AIG bonuses was far less than what the American public pay's you're lazy arses to sit up here on the hill and screw sh*t up and have everyone else pay for it. And, that Nancy Pelosi beeoch, where's she at? I'd like to tell her arse a thing or two as well. I tell you what, why don't we just end this promotional circus right now and all you pompus turds just kiss my big ole white butt cause I plead the fifth. Haaaa! Eat that Barney, whatcha gonna do now?" And the American public (fans) go nut's, shouting, clapping and pumping their fist. They (American Tax-Payers) later decide to elect Mr. Liddy President because he possesses Khahuna's, big ones at that, and all this takes place while President Obama is in California hitting the television circuit, getting in touch with America and attempting to convience everyone he's going to repair the problem. However, when asked about the money he received from AIG, he has not comment. The End

Don't complain. Remember, you helped put him in there. The great Savior!

Oh my! I wish now that I did not read that story about the woman at the gas pump. That was horrible. Her poor family. I'm haunted and I don't even know her.

Why did you cut out the short, chubby girl? I love me some softball players.

Obama, unlike the previous president, is capable of walking and chewing gum at the same time. Please recall that Bush spent as much time on vacation as he did while at "work." Obama is out among the people attempting to understand their situations and explaining his programs. Recall also that Bush would only appear at secure military bases or exclusive Republican party functions. It is perfectly clear it will take several years to clean up the mess of the past administration. I'm glad Obama is actually in contact with events in our "real world."

Manson didn't just plan the murders--he made them happen. Without him, Sharon Tate and the rest are still alive.

10:45, We must be in different worlds. Obama said while running for office, he understood the peoples situation. But, I liked how you stated he was "attempting to understand their situation". Honestly, have you ever known anyone in Washington, or an Elitist or any other Uppity to understand anything in the "Real World"? Answer, hell no. And I like how you guy's say this is all Bush's fault. Just another example of how you guy's can't "nut-up" to squat. I know Republicans have surely screwed the pooch in the past but I'm completely amazed at how you guy's can't admit the truth, when the facts are stareing you right in the face. Amazing!! People better do their homework on how all this happened. I'm just glad I didn't vote for the guy. I have said it before and I'll say it again the two people we better watch out for are Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Good Luck Aaaaaamerica!

I, too, am really pissed about the goofy executive pay and bonus issues. However, is anyone aware of the difference between the $160 MILLION being paid to AIG execs and the $160 BILLION of taxpayer money invested into AIG and the $1.5 TRILLION exposure AIG has to the credit default swaps? The bonus money is obscene but is a tiny rounding error compared to the other numbers. Let's focus on the basic problem - the bonuses are trivial.

11:04 & 11:53......Ditto!!!!

I would also like to add a few more select words to that but I'm sure it wouldn't be approved by Barry.

Hope the person who caused a girl to burn to death realizes that no phone call or text message while driving is worth burning someone to death for. But in America, it seems we're willing to die and kill others in order to get the latest gossip from a friend.

I think the Olan Mills orange picture is Jay Ferguson and Drew Barrymore, just before their tryst on Thunder Island.

10:45 - I agree with you.

And I am quiet happy that I voted for Pres. Obama. I'm so glad in this time of financial crisis we have someone in the White House that is extremely intelligent.

Anonymous said...

Right on 10:45. I'm an educated black man and I voted for Obama. Its about time we have a president that understands the people, and where we come from and our point of views. Barack will lead us out of this turmoil that Dubya has put us in. In four years time one of the greatest presidents ever.

I'm an educated white woman and I didn't vote for Obama. We have had many presidents that understand the people, where we come from and our points of view. That's why we are in this turmoil. Several presidents have caused this, not just one. You can't please all the people all the time. I remember after 9/11 most people were behind Bush and the war. They thought we could go in and do our thing and be out fast. Didn't happen, no way, so the tide turned, FAST! We have had a lot of good presidents, great (not so sure)! Will Obama prove himself...way too early to tell!

TO 10;45 YOUR PRESIDENT not mine isn't in the white house.Isaw him on the evening news hugging an immigrant in california.It cost more to get him there than it would have taken to bring Jay to DC.And he says he is in sync with the people of America.BULLSHIT. DAGO

Anonymous said...

9:02 Whatcha got against immigrants? Are you a Native American? If not, you're either an immigrant or descended from them. As for Obama being in Califorinia, well that's what's called getting out of the Washington Beltway and communicating with our citizens. That's one of his jobs.

Third generation American and proud of it.I do have indian blood also.None of my people were illegals.I know that YOUR president spoke from his heart last night because there were no uh duh ums in it .Sign me CRIPPLED ALSO

9:53 things like "Great Savior" and "Walk on Water" and other heavenly comparisons were spoken by the party of Rush. Does that make it true? It was not the Dems saying such shit.

Are you trying to invoke SYMPATHY for Charlie Manson????? How can you even ask such a question!!! That "thing" is the devil incarnate. How dare you even suggest that he shouldn't be incarcerated.

It is odd that you mentioned the pantie stealing at VS. My younger sister went to visit my other younger sister in West Texas a month or so ago and she was telling me about stopping at some roadside stand where they were selling a lot of different things and one of the things they were selling were panties. She was laughing about it. Maybe someone needs to go to San Angelo and look for the roadside stands along the way. Could catch the theif selling the goods.
