Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I watched Boondock Saints over the weekend, and I don't know if it was great or horrible. (But I was surprised to learn that it's box office gross of a shockingly low $25,812.)
  • Baylor 21, Kansas 9 (and that's in baseball). For grins, I looked up how many points the football team against Kansas the last time they played. The answer: 10.
  • Love him or hate him, Obama looks confident on the foreign stage.
  • The Evil Empire thinks they won the Big 12 Football Championship last year. (But I'm distracted by the ill placed a/c wall control in the photo.)
  • I hate weather talk, but I've never seen a Spring as windy as this one.
  • And what a crummy day for the opening of baseball.
  • Channel 5 news this morning ran a poll "to tell us what you think is the most affordable family outing: The Rangers, Six Flags or the Zoo." A poll? You're the news organization. Tell us the answer.
  • The hot Fox 4 weather girl was on the morning newscast today.
  • I'm having a crummy air conditioning unit replaced. Ugh.
  • I've never watched Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network, but a place in Watauga will be featured on it tonight.
  • Small irritation: When anyone ends a point with "'Nuff said."
  • Chances of someone making a comment ending in "'Nuff said": 100%.
  • Funny line from The Ticket this morning about the tradition of having the Texas NASCAR winner pose with a cowboy hat and six shooters: Why do they have to dress him up like Yosemite Sam?
  • Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert is weird looking.
  • A vague story of a guy jumping to his death off a a Northpark Mall parking garage produced 96 comments. (And lots of weird things seem to happen at that high tone mall.)

To the Channel 5 poll: id say the Rangers game! buy a $6 upperdeck seat and you can sit anywhere in the ballpark you want b/c noone will be there!! plus you can cook hotdogs and hamburgers out in the parking lot before you go in. I hate that the Rangers are gonna suck again this year, all thanks to Jon Daniels being an idiot! THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT

Looks like a clear violation of local electrical code in the background. No cover on that box. She is all wet and no cover? Death is lurking around the corner, and I don't mean the dude in the background either.

Does anyone remember how Bush's confidence was characterized by Liberals and the media? I don't recall it being described admiringly. "Arrogant" and "cocky" seem to come to mind. The ol' Liberal double standard in action, I guess. (Besides, "love him or hate him" doesn't leave room for those of us who do neither, but simply oppose Obama's policies.)

And 'nuff said (or it's alternative 'nuff sed) are magical words to those of us who grew up reading Marvel comics and Stan Lee's comments.

Have to comment on your "THE SPIN" 's first Headline which reads, "Officer Randy White of Bridgeport is killed in a traffic accident. "

Um......that was no accident.

That place in Watauga is great. You would never even know it was there because it looks just like a gas station. The food is wonderful.

Wordkyle-Bush was arrogant and cocky. Not because he was self confident . But because of his arrogant language and message to the rest of the world.

Bush set the tone with the world that USA is the most powerful and the rest of the world can follow us or go to hell. That is arrogance and built resentment.
Obama publicly recognized the value of other nations and citizens ask the world to be our partners.

Obama has demonstrated leadership. The world is responding positively.

As we struggle to deal with multiple crisis ranging from economic to national security, our nation's worst enemy is our own citizens who listen to distorted rhetoric and are told (by Limbaugh and others) that the 'enemy' is the liberals (your fellow Americans) and hope that the president fails because they do not agree with his policies.

I can't believe you haven't watched Diners, Drive Ins...it's super. Nuff Sed...

The place in Watauga is a gas station... Originally the owner couldnt get financed to build across the street so got a loan to have it inside the gas station. Long story short, he now owns the gas station and the land across the street. Nuff Said!

I think you should have used the word "crummy" in every thought, not just in two of them.

wordkyle said...

915 - umm, yeah...how's that "positive" response from North Korea and Iran going? How do you think Israel feels about Obama? Positive?

Could the response he's getting from other countries be because he joined them in attacking America? Not much leadership there -- more like trying to win a popularity contest. (Shades of Bill Clinton.)

If you want to cite Limbaugh's stance, then do it correctly -- he made clear that he wanted Obama's socialist policies to fail. It appears that you yourself are guilty of listening only to "distorted rhetoric."

I keep expecting Hussein Obammy to break out into "I want to buy the world a Coke" any minute. Talk to the hand.

Six Flags is by far the MOST expensive!!

Cheapest would probably be 1/2 price Wed. @ the Zoo and pack ur own lunch.

Best deal would be ALL U CAN EAT seats @ the Rangers Game!!

Interesting that the looney toons posting about the suicide are intoning prayers for his soul and that he will dwell with Jesus hereafter. Duuuuuhh!!! Isn't it one of the rules that suicide will deny you any part of that? Can't they get anything right?

I am just relieved that the 8 years of embarrassment we endured as a nation from the Bush Administration is over.

And that we now have an intelligent President that can articulate a peaceful vision for the world's future in a way that makes other world's citizens want to join us.

I have a legitimate reason as to why Texas NASCAR makes the winner of the race pose like Yosemite Sam... They are huge fans of Texas Tech, Maybe?....

Obama looks like a terrified goob on the "foreign stage" who is getting played by every world leader with any kind of bone to pick with the US- most notably Venezuala, Iran and North Korea.

wordkyle said...

1235 - Hmmm...Just a few questions:

1) How and why is Obama "intelligent" whereas Bush was not (which I'm assuming was your point?) What indications of Obama's intelligence -- other than his admitted ability to read aloud -- have you seen?

2) What indication is there that "other world's citizens" want to join us? And exactly what are they joining?

3) This "peaceful vision" you speak of -- are there indications that our enemies share it? Is it the sheer awesomeness of Obama's presence that will sway them? Or is it Obama's stated intention of sending massive amounts of American taxpayer dollars to other countries for "redistribution" to which you refer? Are you confusing "peace" with bribery?

So far, it appears that Obama has got tough with America's historical allies (Israel) and American citizens (executives who get paid and babies who survive abortion,) while flirting with those who have expressed the desire and ability to kill us.

Obama is way out of his league in the national setting, like a kid trying to play with the big guys. He's scary, and the alliances he's forming should make us all quake with foreboding.

Well, that's because Obama doesn't spend half his time talking about serious topics with a smirk on his face. You can play semantic games all you want, but Obama is clearly a better public speaker.

umm, yeah...how's that "positive" response from North Korea and Iran going? How do you think Israel feels about Obama? Positive?

First of all, North Korea acts the way it acts regardless of who is President. You ought to know that. Iran has pledged to help crack down on the opium coming out of Afghanistan, which is probably a result of Obama's outreach effort since they offered nothing of the kind while Bush was President. As for Israel...if their right-wing government is unhappy with our President, it's because he's doing something right.

So far, it appears that Obama has got tough with America's historical allies (Israel) and American citizens (executives who get paid and babies who survive abortion,) while flirting with those who have expressed the desire and ability to kill us.

Your flyin' off the deep end here WK. You might try to recall that Bush also "flirted" with those who wanted to kill us, or more specifically, did actually kill our soldiers in the thousands in Iraq. It was called the "awakenings" movement, and I'm sure you heartily approved. Why was that such a great idea, and talking to Iran is not?

Sorry that you are having so much trouble with the fact that conservatism is on a downward spiral and your destructive party is no longer in power.

Limbaugh a known racist, seems to be leading the conservatives. I just hope the many good Republicans can find their voice before the extremist drag them down.

wordkyle said...

Xan - So Bush's facial expression is the difference? That seems a little shallow. I wonder what a Google of "obama, smirk" will turn up in a couple of years? Or "obama, smug?"

As for North Korea, they did not launch while Bush was President, so your conclusion that "regardless of who is President" is baseless. Obama's weak response will have consequences, one way or another.

As for Iran and opium, it's the same battle as America and drug traffic from Mexico -- Iran is the world's largest consumer of opium. And contrary to what was promised during the campaign, Obama's magnificence has not stopped Iran from developing nukes.

Your attitude toward Israel seems to match Obama's. He definitely has a pro-Muslim position -- a position he assiduously avoided mentioning during the campaign.

Regading Obama's sucking up to those who wish to kill Americans, your point eludes me.

222 - Your link is full of bogus quotes supposedly made by Rush Limbaugh. Here is a thorough debunking of one of them. Those that are not completely bogus are "ransom note" quotes - snippets taken out of context for the express purpose of misrepresenting the speaker's meaning. The opinion of an anon who does such sloppy research doesn't carry a lot of weight with anyone.

The diner is called Chef Point Cafe. And it is awesome. We eat there often since it is right up the road. Franson is very nice, as if his wife.

A ton of links to right-wing blogs, which won't exactly prove your point.

As for North Korea, they did not launch while Bush was President, so your conclusion that "regardless of who is President" is baseless. Obama's weak response will have consequences, one way or another.

Clearly, you have not been paying attention for the last six years. It was during the Bush administration that the Agreed Framework collapsed and North Korea detonated their first nuclear weapon. A combination of Bush administration blustering and inattention permitted this to happen. I would say that is a considerably more important development than a missile test.

Regading Obama's sucking up to those who wish to kill Americans, your point eludes me.

I'll be clearer then. The Bush administration willfully embraced a policy of engaging, hiring, and paying, former Sunni militants who at one time were engaged in the killing of U.S. soldiers. This would seem to be evidence that talking to your enemies can sometimes have a positive effect. Do you deny this?

I always get the biggest kick out of reading the blog comments. There are always a few intrepid political debaters. They never will convince their opponent that they are right... but they will never stop trying.

...and will never cease annoying the rest of us.

Yes, WordKyleBaugh - Who was president in 2006 when Korea launched "NUCULAR" missiles?

Do you just make this stuff up? Geez!

8:00, You need to proofread your own work. Nowhere in the wikipedia article did I see the word nuclear. If they had shot off nuclear missiles, North Korea would be glowing in the dark from President Bush's orders. He doesn't play footsies with his enemies like your boy Obammy.
