Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • "Is anyone out there who really believes they are going to get one of them stimulus checks." - Gov. Rick Perry acting country (as heard on NPR this morning.)
  • I'm halfway through 1776. I went into it with a little hesitation but it's absolutely great. I'm currently up to August of that year and, although I don't want to sound pessimistic, it looks like the British are going to win that war.
  • When I was growing up, it seemed schools were more interested in teaching Texas history than American history.
  • Funny exchange yesterday:
Prosecutor: "Those better not be the facts [of this criminal case] --- that would really offend me." Defense lawyer beside me (laughing): "We certainly couldn't have that happen." Me (smiling): "Yeah, we sure couldn't." Prosecutor: "Watch it, Green." Me: "Hey, he said it first. Why are you jumping on me?"
  • I'm not sure what happened on The Bachelor since I never watch it, but it's got everybody riled up.
  • It's "spring forward" weekend. Ugh.
  • You never hear anyone refer to the joys of raising a teenager or referring to a teenage as "a blessing."
  • I had a bull rider's wife once tell me that I she thought I could have been a bull rider. (Not making that up.)
  • Fox 4 had a story of six TWU students being arrested for hazing. The allegations were "some slapping" and releasing an odor that "made some of the girls sick." We are arresting people for that?
  • You would think Time and Newsweek would survive. There's just so much information out there that it's nice to have it wrapped up nicely in a weekly package.
  • I've got a pimple that won't go away. I'm this close to taking a needle to it. Developing . . . .
  • They've been stringing an ugly electrical line across 287 just south of Decatur for days.
  • Half Marathon thought: Every lady watching the race from her high tone home was also holding a little dog wrapped in a blanket.
  • Jon Stewart on The Daily Show a couple of nights ago: "Just over three years ago, the Republicans controlled the Presidency and both houses of Congress. Today....they control 1/4 of The View."
  • Fascinating new Supreme Court case heard yesterday: A jury rules against a guy to the tune of $50 million. He then spends $3 million on the campaign of a guy running for judge on the only appellate court. New judge wins. The court hears the appeal of the $50 million case and votes to overturn it 3-2 with new judge in the majority. You can read about it in the aptly named article, Cash Bar.

The Batchelor chose Melissa (from Dallas)and proposed and gave her a ring. She is very cute and sweet and then the other night in the After the Rose ceremony he dumped her and asked the other girl, Molly, to give him a chance.He is a JERK.

I gotta find me some of them charcoal drawers that traps odors - quick, or I am gonna have one looong rapsheet!

"...I don't want to sound pessimistic, it looks like the British are going to win that war."
Don't ruin it for me by giving away the ending! I'm waiting for the movie version. I can totally see Will Smith as GW, and Scarlett Johannsen as Martha, sitting by the fire, reading letters from George. Trussed up in one of those dresses where the bodice pushes her bubbies up...uh, what were we talking about?

"They've been stringing an ugly electrical line across 287 just south of Decatur for days."
The cute ones are on back order

"When I was growing up, it seemed schools were more interested in teaching Texas history than American history."
It's the influx of all them dang Yankees DI-luting the population

I wonder what the demographics of the readership of Time and Newsweek are, and I wonder if the spin those mags put on the news sits well with what % of those people? I was a regular reader, but I stopped reading either one a long time ago. Everything from story selection, to what they leave in and what they leave out, to their selection of people of the year and century, etc., sent me elsewhere for my news sources.

If magazines like Time and Newsweek were not so bias in their articles then people like myself who grew up looking forward to reading them would not divorce them. I don’t know how many Americans feel like I do, but I won’t support those magazines. I get angry reading them. Liberals cannot see the bias when it is staring them down.

I gather much of my news on the Internet, do not watch television news, nor subscribe to magazines that I stopped reading 10 years ago. When I found out that 90% of the reporters and editorial writers for the Dallas Morning News voted in Democrat primaries (found that information in public records) I realized why they were bias and stopped reading it.

I just saw an article in a UK on line newspaper saying that Obama was rude to the British PM. You won't pick that up anywhere in US news except maybe on FNC.

I like different opinions on global warming but have to go to European and Australian sources for that information. I can't even find it in Scientific American. I won't be renewing that subscription this year.

If by "everybody" you mean women, then, yes. I don't know any men who watch or care about what happens on any so-called relationship show. If they had one that was R-rated, that would be a different story. There's no draw in...dun dun DUN...DRAMA!

global warming isnt in the US news anymore because Obama fixed it just with his glorius apperance and Mother Earth is no longer mad at GW.

Before you hire a lawyer always check public records to see which lawyers contributed to the judge's campaign. Then select your lawyer. It works.

The alarm clock went off and I fell back to sleep and dreamt I went to Church and took my shirt and shoes off and layed back in the seat with a blanket over me.

Whats it mean?

Hey, depending on where the pimple is just shave it off and use a steptic penicl to "stop the bleeding". Unless of course the pimples on your butt. And if you're in to shaving your....never mind.
Boy, I wish using a steptic pencil could "stop the bleeding" of the economy. I know, I know, it's all Bushs fault even though Obama has spent four times more than Bush did and he's only been in office a month and a few day's. And, if he get's his way with the illegals "give-away fest" were all in trouble.

About that Supreme Court thing. It'd be a little easier if we didn't insist on electing our highest judicial officers at the state level. Just sayin'...

9:32 - Anytime someone says they done read, watch or listen to organized media and they get all their news from the internet I am pretty sure they are not well informed and represent either the extreme right or left.

I have a 16 yr old teenager and he is a joy. Great kid. I have no doubt he will become a great man.

You only hear about the troubled kids, but there are many parents raising good kids.

Tape a piece of bacon over your pimple and keep it on for a few days........you'll be amazed at the results, and dogs will really appreciate it.

Has anyone every seen a "pageant mom" that was actually thin, fit and/or attractive? Is it me, or are they all ugly tubs?

Being well informed is not furthered by reading more stuff which you already know is biased. There's another name for that; BRAINWASHING.

Rather, you should read only opinion columns, by design balanced between those you know to be extremists in their respective camps. Look for a few true moderates if you can, they'll be a little hard to find, though. Ask yourself each day whose point of view seemed more logical.
Ponder these things daily 30 minutes as you work in your garden. Never turn on the TV.

Trust me, this will work.

Of course you won't do it. Immigrants from several countries will continue to outwork you and reshape the country you destroyed sitting on your fat asses watching American Batchellor Idol Survivor or some such nonsense.

Incredible you all consider yourselves so smart and refuse to see the obvious.

Like most hard working upper middle class guys I got thoroughly pounded by Clintons tax hike.

I'm doing things a little different this time: I am not paying them.

Dude, I didn't work a lick last year- stayed home with the baby.

This year believe it it or don't I'm gettin 3600 hundred dollars in "tax refund".

This is what it's like to be black?

Count me in home boy.
