Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

Rare Photo Of Ex-Mrs. Green #3
  • We've had three earthquakes recently (yesterday in Cleburne, May 16th in Euless and October 21st of last year in Irving)? What' going on?
  • Some of the "I hate all drilling" crowd are blaming in the exploration of the Barnett Shale. My one semester of college Geology provides me with the expertise to say, "Heck if I know."
  • There's a Mesquite elementary school that has shut down because over 100 students have the flu. If that had happened during the Swine Flu Panic of 2009, every school in North Texas would have shut down.
  • I get a ton of mass forwarding anti-Obama racist emails like I'm part of some "white club" or something.
  • I finally solved my home Internet problems. I almost had to go to therapy.
  • After the tech guy installed my new router, he wrote down the new wireless key like he expected me to know what to do with it. I did, but would everyone?
  • Will Ferrell is everywhere promoting the new Land of the Lost movie. Not interested.
  • Oddest encounter outside the Decatur courthouse yesterday. A scruffy looking guy was carrying a bottle of baby oil and a lighter and then began to bombard me with questions: "What's in this bottle?" "Can I trust the label?" "Would you rub something on you that would clog your pores forever?" "Which one of these is more toxic?" I have no idea.
  • I think I heard where our Texas government killed someone last night.
  • Crazy story: A senior vice president of Frost Bank plummeted 14 stories to his death yesterday in downtown Fort Worth and no one knows what happened.
  • Wow: The Bridgeport Index is in the process of placing every page of its paper online from 1957 to 1975. It's a little cumbersome but it does have a name index. I browsed around it a little bit and it's fascinating. (I tried to find my birth announcement, but couldn't.)

A question: Are the Obama e-mails you receive racist racist, or are they racist simply because they are anti-Obama? In these weird times, the two are often confused.

im still looking for any hint of racism coming from the right. yea, there was a few e-mail jokes during the campaign but im not seeing it.

It is sorta ironic that the angry white males amongst us are flailing about on the subject of affirmative action, while just over the horizon they will be the minority. Wonder what their views will be then?

Just as old Chaney has discovered, it is one thing to hold a certain positon on gay marriage and then have a daughter who wants it.
Can't imagine what she felt like each time in the last 8 yrs he spouted "the line" She lost 8yrs so he could appease the base.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A GUY THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE DEALS WITH ALOT HE LIVES IN THE RHOME AREA AND IS CRAZY.

914 - C'mon, at least try to be honest. Dick Cheney supported gay marriage at least as far back as the 2000 campaign. He prominently diverged from Bush on this issue. When you Liberals make such accusations, do you just assume that no one will bother to check?

Whether you like it or not, you ARE part of some "white club or something." We're called the Caucasians. (Annoying Andy Rooney voice: Is it weird that white people have a label with the word "Asian" in it?)
Ease up on the white guilt unless you have a membership card or uniform from one of the radical offshoot sects.

Well, that pic sure looks like a fun honeymoon in the making.
Is that a game of blindfolded pick-out-your-bride's legs? And how do you play without getting hitched...or slapped...or slapped with a sex-based lawsuit? (And would anyone mind if I played through, preferably without a blindfold?)

So, did you get the name of the scruffy guy outside the courthouse? You should have, because you may be appointed as his counsel in the not too distant future. You should have told him to put his foil hat back on and take cover!

Will Ferrell was suppose to be on an episode of Man vs Wild with Bear Grylls. Not sure if it has aired yet, but I love that show and can't imagine Ferrell on it. Love Survivorman also.

9:18 - ever wonder why the anti-abortion crowd doesn't go after the lethal injection bunch?

Anonymous said...

Our state government killed a guy that killed his wife, his 12 year old step son, and his 11 year old step daughter. He shot them while they were naked and surrounded their bodies with porn and sex toys. Upon being arrested for those murders, he confessed to killing his mentally challenged half sister, pregnant with his child (she had already had one child by him), and his father. His sister's body was found stuffed in a plastic container in the front seat of an abandoned car at their dad's auto shop and his father was found shot dead in his recliner surrounded by air fresheners. You really think the state screwed this one up?

You won't find a birth announcement. Did your "parents" never mention that experimental test tube baby program run by Wise County in the early 60's? The one where they did some embryonic transmutations utilizing seed from an unidentified genius that later turned out to be criminally insane?
Suddenly your life starts to make sense now, doesn't it?

Drill, baby, drill! Great for those of us Wise Countians who have royalty interests in them!

10:14, No, I never wonder about that because killing innocent defenseless human beings is a crime. You on the other hand would rather kill babies in the womb but yet save ruthless savage killers.

Fast Eddie said...

The news report from the Startelegram says that the earthquake was at a depth of "a little more than 3 miles." The average depth of the wells drilled is around 8000 feet. A mile is 5280 feet - 3 miles is much deeper than the drilling. Sorry, "haters."

Anonymous said...

Okay just so the lamest argument in the world will stop...you can be pro life for innocent babies and pro death penalty for heinous criminals with hypocracy as only in the moral relevancy world of liberal kooks (redundant)...does a murderer and a baby's life equate as equally deserving.

Anonymous said...

"I hate all drilling" crowd
I wonder how these idiots power their home, cars, etc.? I'm sure they are all green and use no oil or gas products.

10:14 - That's stupid there not related! One is guilty of a crime against humanity. The other is only guilty of being conceived.

Just a thought!

all life is not sacred....there are a lot of scum out there that exist through managing to be born who aren't worth anything. I have had dogs with more worth.

Are people really trying to equate the death penalty with abortion?

The death penalty is imposed by society after a person has been found guilty of a heinous crime, a crime determined after thoughtful deliberation by a jury to be so bad that it warrants said penalty. The defendant is defended by a professional juror within an adversarial justice system hundreds of years old. The case is brought to trial after an investigation (again, by professionals) in which sufficient evidence must be presented to a jury to justify trying it in a court of law. After all of this, the defendant has the ability to appeal the verdict and the punishment to make sure the system peformed as it was supposed to.

In an abortion, the baby dies because a woman chooses for it to.

wordkyle said...

1247 - Maybe a person's life starts out sacred but they can forfeit that sacredness through wicked deeds. Is that possibility in your rulebook?

Is their something wrong with me if I am pro death, pro death?

its very simple. a child in the womb is alway inocent.

You sure hear alot about the sainted late term abortion doctor being murdered and hardly a peep about a Muslim shooting two soldiers at a recruiting station. Obammy and his attorney general have posted US marshalls at abortion clinics and denounced it as a terrible crime. Where is the protection for recruiters? Kind of tells you what his priorities are, doesn't it?

Anonymous said...

I'm ok with the death penalty for murderers, but then I'm ok with abortion, too. As a woman, no one should have a say in my body and what I do with it but me...period.

I don't care what you do to your body, 2:33, but I would worry about the body of any child you might be carrying.

Re the Random Wednesday Pic:

I do not recognize the wedding game, but I do have a question about the bride's gown. When did the virginal gown of betrothal become a hoochie lap dance fashion? Strange to see a bride's girlie bits spilling out all over the itty bitty wedding dress.

I guess I am officially an old grump.

The think Will is a waste. He COULD be great if he got away from that crap he is doing now. Each movie seems to be worse than the one before. Just MY opinion of course

Propagandist said...

Anti-Obama spam calling Obama a nigger or a monkey isn't racist, it's just offensive and stupid.

If you want to know about real racism, read my rant about racism. It's a little on the long side but it lets y'all know a little more about some of the racism that's going down these days.

Anonymous said...

The guy outside the courthouse sounds like Micheal Pallella that lives in Rhome who buggs the crap out of all the officers in WIse County because he thinks the government is after him. He always thinks that the government is releasing gases into the air to harm everyone. I think almost every officer in Wise County is tired of him. He also says that some kind of bacteria is coming out of your pores on your skin because the government injected your body with poisions. That guy is LOONEY!! Stay away from him.

99.99% chance it was somebody who needed killing. Get over it.

And if he fell outside that 99.5 group, well lump it in there with tornadoes and lightning strikes and other random events. It's not like the world is running out of people.

Does an aborted fetus skip the sin tests and the mentioned wickedness, and go straight to the waiting arms of God? Or not? If so, is this not what all Christians shoot for, the arms of God in Heaven? No sin, no temptations, no chance to be poisoned by wickedness and evil, or no chance to go to Hell, just a pure soul for God. Satan does not even get a chance to lay a single evil thought in place.

819 - Do some research on purgatory

the question was do the unborn fetus go to Heaven, to God, or not.

Two words: Limbus Infantium.

Wordie...you mean Limbo, not Purgatory, for infants.

wordkyle said...

Dear DFPBXVI: You're right. My last post was my correction. The poster I was responding to wanted a heaven-or-hell answer, and "purgatory" was what first came to my mind as "D - None of the above." I doubt that either answer will satisfy.

Anonymous said...

To Hell with Purgatory.

Anonymous said...

Word, thank you. The answer does satisfy. Reading on a Catholic site (newadvent.org) seems an unborn fetus is held in a state of reserve not being anywhere but someplace. The same place an unborn fetus that God Himself aborts from a miscarriage, accident, fatal deformity or defect, or sudden death from the mother must go. Similar to listening to Mormon missionaries years ago when they talked about that a person that does not even know who God is, like in primitive tribes and so forth, that for the primitive to get to Heaven, someone has to step in and be "saved" for them because they are in that in between place. It even says that young children that die in youth before being saved do not go to heaven, but go to that "in limbo" place also. Come on, you are doing good, but I said nothing about wanting a Heaven or Hell answer, just whether or not they went to Heaven. The "no chance for Hell" was intended to mean they were not exposed to sin. All of this time, I figured innocents like children got a pass to Heaven. According to this, and you, I was wrong. At Funerals, those preachers need to stop talking about the deceased “being in Heaven” and focus more on “they must just be in limbo.” That may not comfort the family as much, tho.
Thanks.

wordkyle said...

1019 - I'm not saying you were wrong. Limbo is a concept, not a proven fact. I inferred from the wording of your question that you were about to say that abortionists were doing the babies a favor by sending them to heaven. I bristled a bit at the suggestion. If that was not your intent, then I apologize. Your guess about the afterlife is as good as mine. There are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of in our philosophy.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Word, and no, I was not implying that they were doing a favor. It just seems like a caring and loving God would compensate and take into consideration those that did not get a chance to know Him would still get a shot at everlasting peace and love in Heaven. Whether the innocent was terminated before birth, or death at 110. Thank you for pointing me to another take.
