Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • The most over-hyped legislation ever was the "Castle Doctrine." It eliminated the duty to retreat before deadly self defense is used in your own home. But before the change, there was not a grand jury that would indict or a jury would convict if a homeowner failed to retreat.
  • The smokin' hot Fiona Gorostiza of Fox 4 has a chance to co-host Regis and Kelly. Go vote here. Me loves me some Fiona.
  • Fox 4's Lari Barager has a birthday today. I wonder how old she is?
  • The Fort Worth Weekly finally changed it's worst web site in the history of ever.
  • I have a DWI trial this morning, but it may only last one day.
  • Tony Romo reportedly put out a Red Alert to keep Jessica out. Hang tough, big guy.
  • Reality shows really don't do it for me.
  • I once saw a couple get engaged on top of the Hoover Dam. And it was the smallest diamond I had ever seen.
  • I never worry about putting making a bank deposit through the mail.
  • I started it about a year ago, but I use my debit card for everything. I never go to the ATM any more.
  • Do you really need to arrest a 12 year old for sexual assault?
  • A rain filled week in the middle of summer should be mandatory.
  • Michael Jackson's doctor will be indicted by the time all is said and done.
  • "He said the contact allegation involved a nurse wearing a jacket that said either God or Jesus 'wants us to sing.' Grant said he held his thumb over the g in sing — without touching her — to make it appear that the jacket said God or Jesus 'wants us to sin.'" --- That got a Tarrant County doctor officially disciplined.
  • Is that a piece of tape on that girl in the pic?

That beer really looks good!

It may be as small as tape, but no, that's just clothing she's got on
Not much different than your usual random gal pix. Keep up the good work

Hoover Dam!? Really? How romantic
Maybe the diamond just seemed small by comparison

The phrase "reality show" isn't really applicable. There is very little about any of those shows that is real. How about "semi-scripted crap"?

I throw everything on my American Airlines master card. I mean everything from property taxes to electric bills to Starbucks coffee, which means I get at least a few free flights a year with all the miles I earn.

What perk does your debit card give you?

I suppose the level of hype on the Castle Doctrine is a fair debate topic, but really Counselor, shouldn't the law reflect what the homeowner can or cannot do, rather than his having to rely on prosecutorial discretion (i.e. a crapshoot, NPI)?

That pic is just awesome. Shopping at the flea market, having a beer, flashing my Playboy bunny tat, stroking my freshly-dyed hair (from that little place two stalls down from the leather jacket emporium), sporting the latest fashions and fake Gucci sunglasses. Am I goth or punk or perhaps the rich daughter of a Greek shipping tycoon just out for a day of slummin? For $50, I can be whoever you want me to be.

re: the Sinning Doctor

You left out the best line in the story!

"The other thing is, this lady is white, and I’m not," Grant said. "I don’t want to play the race card, but I don’t know how much that had to do with it."

You don't want to play the race card?

Sounds like you just did there, Bubba.

If you even have to mention the "race card," you're playing it.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I notice that "race card" line, too. It's like he's saying "Maybe if I just mention it without saying it was a factor, Jesse or Al might show up and absolve me of any wrongdoing. I'm sure I must be the victim in this, somehow."
He was disciplined for multiple infractions, not just this one

If anybody wants to read about some real life in the south in the 60's, go to www.concordiasentinel.com and click on Frank Morris Murder. There's a series of very interesting stories about some real life not far from here. I know almost all the people in the stories, kin to a few.

Not sure what your question is about the 12yo arrested for sexual assault. Do you mean was it necessary to book her and hold her for an alleged assault? The authorities certainly needed to take her away from contact with any other minors, and possibly some adults as well.
All the kids involved were being watched by the boyfriend of a mother. RED FLAG! How many strippers, prostitutes and porn stars got that way as a result of "attention" from momma's boyfriend? I'm not suggesting that all strippers, prostitutes and porn stars were abused, and I'm not suggesting that all women who were abused fall into any of those categories, I'm just saying there may be a cause-and-effect at work there.
If the allegations are true, that girl needs some serious counseling, plus all the other kids involved need help, too. An investigation should yield some charges being filed against a few adults in this story

I'm gonna have to retract that statement I made earlier about reality shows being called unscripted crap. Seems that actual crap took offense and is threatening legal action.
Since the beginning of time, crap has had a great reputation as the subject of, or punchline to, many of our funniest jokes. It's also used in the manufacture of fertilizer, which helps our food to grow. It has a rarified status, in its many forms, as a most excellent expletive. It allows us an excuse to leave our desks or workstations in the middle of the day, and read the sports page.

I sincerely apologize to crap for any inference that associated it with the lowly reality shows. I realize now that reality shows are what network apes fling at your TV screen, hoping something will stick.

Barry, you should use your credit card instead. Using the debit card opens you up for fraud, which the bank will EVENTUALLY cover, on their timetable. Meantime, you are out the money when fraud occurs.

A credit card company has to credit back any disputed charges, so you aren't out any money.

I hate the "baggy pants" fad! It's the most stupid fad ever and is absolutely obscene. Who wants to see people's underwear ( or worse) hanging out! Didn't it used to be against the law for "undies" to show, because it was offensive to others? (Wonder if I could have these idiots arrested if I called the cops and said I was offended by such obscenely cladded, tattooed, pierced, and nasty looking thugs. hmm)
Sure would, if I could! It's TRASHY looking, period!

As far as Michael Jackson's doc......yes, I belive he should be arrested if he gave him overdose of whatever drug that killed him. That's murder! Michael wasn't planning on doing himself in. He had a huge tour planned and was working on its production. His doc is in for a world of hurt because I believe it WAS murder.

Well with the Castle law..there isn't an arrest so no lawyer needed...that is really the complaint isn't it?

"Michael Kinsley referred to him as "the nation's most famous black scholar"." wikipedia

I'm wondering about this Henry Lois Gates fellow. The nearest I can tell he is smart and well known among black people for being smart and well known among black people.

He couldn't hack Yale Law and quit after one month there.

Another interesting tidbit: "Gates, Jr. graduated from Piedmont High School in 1968 and attended Potomac State College in Keyser, West Virginia before earning his undergraduate degree at Yale University, gaining a B.A. summa cum laude in History. To his eventual embarrassment, he wrote in his Yale application, "As always, whitey now sits in judgment of me, preparing to cast my fate. It is your decision either to let me blow with the wind as a nonentity or to encourage the development of self. Allow me to prove myself." wikipedia

. Thank Heaven homeowners can now legally use deadly force on any douche bag who illegally enters a home and threatens the safety and sanctity of the homeowner. Perhaps, if more criminals thought they would get shot doing the crime there would be fewer criminals.

. Lari Barager is 39 years old. (It is public knowledge if you know where to look.)

. Romo is just another drama king Cowboy. He is an injury/craptacular season away from becoming just another annoying has-been celebritard.

. The only thing real about "Reality Shows" is that random schmucks will ALWAYS act like absolute douche bags when there is a camera on them and they have a chance of extending their 15 minutes by so much as one second. Absolute soul sapping dreck that makes me wonder at the "intellect" of people who thrive on such twaddle.

. I have never understood people who feel obliged to do, in public, something as intimate and only significant to the couple as getting engaged.

. I have never banked by mail.

. Everything, including my mortgage payments, son's tuition, taxes, insurance, utilites, etc. is charged to my Visa. Two years ago we used bonus points to fly first class, rent a car for 2 weeks, spend 1 week in London at a 5 star hotel, and another week in Scotland at 4 & 5 star hotels and all we paid for was the cost of food and entertainment/tickets to sites. Bonus points are AWESOME so long as you make certain to pay in full your account prior to any interest charges.

. At what age should people get a pass for committing a first degree felony? Regardless of the age of the actor the charge is still, according to the Texas Penal Code § 22.021, aggravated sexual assault.

. I love gray drizzly days regardless the time of year. Just for mental health reasons there should be at least 6 rainy days a month.

. If MJ's doctor provided and injected the drug that killed Jacko, the Dr. will serve time in the Big House.

. For the most part, doctors are wonderful people, however, when they decide to move to Crazy Town they have what it takes to become the mayor and lead the Douche Bag Parade.

. It does not look like tape to me. It looks like the slutted-up, ho-bag has placed star shaped tanning decals on an oddly situated rug burn.

mzchief - all due respect, but I'm 38 today. Please don't age me ...

I think you're right Mz, aboutthe star shaped tan tats. They're all the rage for the young ho crowd. I think the low pants deal that almost show the pubic area on females is nothing short of disgusting. Many things are best left to the imagination.

mzchief said...

To Lari Barager...
Forgive my typo. You are absolutely correct about being 38

Happy Birthday & Continued Blessings!

Lari Barager is 29 and married to Ty Murrey, the dancer.

Mzchief...who is your mortgage co? I have tried for several years on and off to take advantage of racking up miles/points with my cards by charging my mortgage payments. I always get shot down. I have had several different mortgages now, through several different banks and they always say this is not an option. Maybe it is because my main mortgage is a Jumbo.

That girl is at a bike rally (Sturgis, ROT). You can tell from the leather jackets and the Harley-Davidson boot boxes in the background.

On the girl in the pic, I think the line to the right of the bunny and above the iron cross is a c-section scar. I'm not saying that's a bad thing.

I could be wrong.

Isn't it kind of weird that mz told Lari Barager that she was "absolutely correct" about knowing her own age?

Duh.

On the credit card vs. debt card - one major issue people do not realize is that when you return an item purchased on a debt card - it might take up the five days for that money to be accessible back in your account. Shocking!!!! The banks have the system worked out to their advantage – they take the money as soon as you make the purchase – but they keep the money long after you make the return. The banks understand the value of float.

Barry....keep the debit card! I think cash is the only way to go! You see it, you buy it, you take it home and it's done. Charge it, intend to pay for it, send in the payment late, and wham! You are hit with a nice late fee and interest charges.

I went against my better judgement a few years ago when I received a thing in the mail from Bass Pro Shops. The offer gave me Bass Pro Bucks for using the Visa on any purchase. I used my Visa to do all sorts of purchases to rack up those Bass Bucks! Twice, I forgot to mail in the payment and was hit with charges.

The day came when I went to the Bass Pro Shop store to redeem my Bucks. I stopped by the service desk to get them to check my account to tell me how many "free bucks" I had. After shopping for my $80 of free stuff, I headed to the check-out. The checker scanned my card and told me I only had $4 on my account! 3 - THREE I said - hours later, they finally determinted that when I had the service desk check my card, the checker had not closed my information on her computer. So, the next person behind me got my "FREE" merchandise. I stick to straight cash and debits now. Good example of how free really isn't so free at times!
