Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • George W. did the craziest wind up before throwing out the first pitch yesterday.
  • I listened to him join the radio broadcast in the bottom of the second inning. He seemed content and happy. But there was an awkward moment when he said, "I'd invite some of my old friends to the Oval Office and they'd say, 'I can't believe I'm in here.' Then they'd look at me." (Followed by the trademarked George Bush giggle which was followed by dead air.)
  • One of my first thoughts when I heard about the earthquake in Italy was the art and architecture.
  • The reports were that traffic leaving the Ballpark yesterday was insane. I can't imagine what it's going to be like for Cowboy games.
  • The Rangers starting shortstop is 20 year old Elvis Andrus. Raise your hand if you would like to be 20 years old and starting for the Rangers. Mine's up.
  • After Elvis got his first hit yesterday, the PA system played, "All Shook Up."
  • I found a shingle in my yard, and I'm still trying to figure out if it came off of my house. I hate the wind.
  • Obama yesterday in Turkey: "Let me say this as clearly as I can. The United States is not and never will be at war with Islam." Who could possibly disagree with that?
  • I don't know why I laugh when I see people write, "Woot!"
  • Traffic reports refer to 287 and I-35 as "the Decatur cut off." I'm not sure I've ever heard any locals refer to it that way.
  • Worst March Madness ever?
  • Accident victim Jackie Murphree of Decatur has arrived in China for some type of stem cell related treatment (that I really don't understand.) Seems like the trip would have been a fascinating human interest story for the local news stations. (Updates about the trip can be found by clicking the link but you have to scroll down a bit.)
  • You can always spot someone studying their grocery receipt as they walk out of the store, and you know they're thinking, "How in the heck did it cost that much?"
  • "FORT WORTH — Texas Christian University will designate some on-campus apartments for gay students and their supporters, creating what may be the only such college housing in the region." Isn't that a step backwards? Kind of like a Leper's Colony?
  • I thought this was just an "old time religion" video until the midget appears at the 2:25 mark. (Perhaps the mother of the crazy Mexican midget that I love so much?)

#1, the 8:28 poster is correct...that chick is UGLY.

#2, about the TCU thing...I would be really scared if I were living in the special housing. Wouldn't that be an easy target for hate groups? I mean it seems it would be like "bomb us, we're all in one central location."

I don't get the whole "gay quarters" thing. For years we've been told they want to be accepted, and now they want to be separate?

I always study my receipt walking out of the store, but I no longer wonder how the total is so high. Now, I just check to make sure I didn't get double-charged for something.

Guys are gonna complain about today's pic, but you know if they were at that pool, they would be leering at her from behind their Oakleys.
And 8:28 thinks yesterday's chick was ugly? Put the Playboy down - they airbrush the photos to make the girls look that way. This is what real women look like

Yes, Baylor does have a Gay section. They call it Baylor.

"We're not at war with Islam" is simply Obama repeating what Bush said over and over. Pavlov would chuckle at your response.

TCU "separate but equal" Doubt seriously if the gays came up with this..........imagine this is a "first step" for TCU admin

1961.....UT's first step......I applied late for UT housing and only housing available was the single section of one dorm set aside for blacks. Three white kids in a group of 40 blacks. And it was a good first step....not a single problem.

1963.....Baylor's natural selection. Ministerial students chose two floors of Brooks Hall to be the "official residence of the called."

One side note. In two yrs at Baylor not a single semester passed without an "indicent" with male student exposing himself to girls or attempting to get in/out of the girls dorm........and without expection.......all the males were ministerial students.
Go figure.

As for the Baylor slams.......I would imagine the Christian colleges actually have a smaller % of population of gays than other colleges by definition. Granted those they do have have to be closeted. As do many churches.

Designated for "gay students and their supporters?" Supporters? Cheerleaders? What does one have to do to qualify as a Gay Supporter so they can get special housing?

She is obviously not a model, and she's not dolled up Hollywood-style, but the gal looks alright to me. Enlarge the photo and take a good look at her face (the bod's not bad, either!) That's not ugly - just not what you are used to seeing here, and too lazy to go troll for yourself. Of course, there are some of you that think a gal is hot if her boobs are bigger than her head, regardless of what her face looks like

Did anyone see the signs along 380 yesterday for Jackie? I couldn't read them because the wind had blown them over some.

Heck, TCU honored Rev. Jeremia Wright for all of his fine work as a hate monger, so making the gay community feel comfortable on campus just seems like the next logical step. If the University is able to foster a caring enviornment for gays and lesbians, it really opens up a whole new and untapped (no pun intended) revenue stream in terms of donations. Now that's 21st century thinking!

Do not blame the mayor of Polville for the ugly women on LLFTLODQ...Cause I know for a fact that Barry won't use WL's pics

Wordkyle - Bush's few respectful words were overridden by other expressions & deeds.

These rare expressions of respect to Islam would have been welcomed by Muslims were they not swept to utter oblivion in the collective memory of the American public by his incessantly flowing anti-Muslim terminology: Islamic radicalism, Islamic fascism, Islamic extremism and extremists, Islamic or Islamist terrorism and terrorists, radical Islamists or Islamist and Islamic radicals, etc.

It is a matter of opinion. Often difficult to see if you are not of the Islam faith. Probably challenging for President Bush to articulate. President Obama may feel the same, only he is able to more effectively communicate it. The fact that he said it so clearly while standing in Turkey as opposed to making the same statement in the US makes a difference. I am sure people of Islam are not yet entirely trusting of US, but hopefully it is a start in the right direction.

Chill out. Whenever someone makes a positive comment about President Obama, it is not necessarily a slam on Bush.

Of course you'll have to get over that irrational gay hate thing. Just eat more and you' forget all about it.

misc anons - My point was not to defend Bush. It was that BG thought Obama's reaffirmation of Bush's words important enough to post. I think the Daily Kos posted Obama's grocery list -- since it's Obama's, his choice of breakfast cereal is magnificent and historic.

I believe the news said that TCU is also adding a living section for christian students, fine arts students, and three other themed living sectors. Not just for gay students.

Italy Earthquake: What's the deal with our government only giving $50,000 to Italy in emergency aid? We gave $900,000,000 to Hamas after Israel ripped them a new one in the Gaza. Are we not on good terms with Italy and Hamas we are?

Hating Israel and her allies costs a lot more money than it used to. Once you lob those rockets they can't be reused.

It is beyond stupidity for anyone to say we will never be at war with some group. As usual this idiot Obama is not qualifed to lead a community organization, much less a small country, even less what is left of the United States.

Islam is the world's second largest religion. The United States Constitution gives us the right to freedom of religion. It is unlikely that the United States government (in its current form) will ever declare war against a religion.

If Texas CHRISTIAN University is going to let gays shack up together and explore each other’s digestive tracts with their aids infected reproductive organs then I would hope that they would provide housing for heterosexual who want to shack up together. Lets bring this out in the open and talk about exactly what they do. Perhaps there is a lawsuit coming for equal rights for heterosexual couples?

Anonymous said...

Equal rights for heterosexual couples? Yeah, right that's like saying you hope there will finally be a White College Fund to match the Negro College Fund. There's no descrimination against the status quo.

Why provide "breakfast cereal" to the trolls?

Anonymous said...

The fact is, to be a gay teenager is akin to being a refugee from an unrecognized country; alone, isolated, rejected, and generally without the emotional equipment to circumvent that which their heterosexual peers take for granted (recognizing that most teenagers are messed up anyway). College, ideally, provides a diverse spectrum to formulate a new identity. I recognize a need for specific gay housing, if only to provide a place to heal and formulate a suitable set of armor (provided there is adequate support).

On the other hand…gay folk make up a very small segment of the general population. At some point, gay citizens will have to navigate the larger heterosexual world. I agree that it is ultimately unhealthy for any minority to isolate. Most don’t wish to. Unlike racial/ethnic minorities, however, gay citizens frequently do not enjoy the support of a larger familial community. In that sense, they are unlike most minorities, while facing the same discrimination that all minorities endure.

Frankly, I also worry that designated housing for gay students will make them an easy target for lunatics. While hate-based violence against other minorities is lessening, attacks against gay folk are on the rise. When any political party in power makes condemnation of homosexuals (including their gay children) a vocal feature of its platform, one doesn't need much imagination to see the consequences; it just take the "right" kind of imagination.
