Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • When you think of it, Sarah Palin needs to find a job to help the unemployment numbers.
  • I have no idea what The Time Traveler's Wife is about.
  • I think the country is finally turning the corner into the era of enlightenment. Fifty years from now, much like we look back in astonishment at the concept of black and white water fountains (well, some of us at least), future citizens will shake their collective heads at how backwoods we have been.
  • I wonder if I can get on one of those "Obamacare Death Panels" that the far right talks about? I'm pretty good at decision making.
  • I've got my AC on remote control (you know, raise the temperature when I'm gone and have it cooler when I return.) Great invention.
  • Low quality video of Fox 4's Chip Waggoner, Evan Andrews, and Fiona Gorostiza in a band. If that Fiona chick jazzes you, you'll like it.
  • Does Jerry Jones wear a hairpiece? The controversial evidence.
  • Schedule for a regular practice day during two-a-days for the Evil Empire. Sheesh.
  • There's a guy exposing himself to kids in McKinney. Two things, Fox 4's Tim Ryan called him a "pervert" this morning (always makes me laugh), and he was last seen at the intersection of Abbey Road and Penny Lane (developer obviously a Beatles fan.)
  • I always go to the mail box with a feeling of excitement and never have that excitement satisfied.
  • I've got a post about the current Decatur dope trial that will go up at 9:00 a.m.
  • College football news: A team 30 miles from Decatur ranks at the top of ESPNS's "Worst Top 10" list, and Tech's Mike Leach will be on the cover of Texas Monthy wearing a pirate eye patch.

Hey Barry, did you see there's a new movie about the end of the world happening on 12/21/12? The crazy person that's been posting that comment for the past three years on this blog was on to something...

I'm going to let you slide on your first thought in regards to Sarah Palin.

I fully understand that sometimes short balding middle-aged men don't know what they’re saying. :]

When you think of it, 3 million other people that have lost jobs since Obammy rushed through the stimulus package need to find jobs also.

Old Timer said...

9:32 you have your facts wrong. The people lost their jobs because the Bush Administration screw the economy up and it all collapsed at the end of his administration. He is the one who started the stimulus program.

OT, Sorry about getting my facts wrong. I had forgotten that all of our problems are because of Bush.

I've been withholding judgment but I'll go ahead and say it now...she's pretty sexy.

Sara Palin works in the family business so keep reading a bit more.

If Jones has a hairpiece he needs to check into the lemon law.

10:22AM......I read that same thing in Newsweek this morning, while sitting on the toilet........are you my spouse? I hope not, but I would also hate to think we are the only two people on the face of the earth that agreed with that statement, whomever you are.

Future citizens will shake their collective heads at how backwoods we have been. ????

I am shaking my head now at elected county officials. So much for the future.

At work not long ago I was sharing a story about a trip to Alabama with my family when I was very young. We stopped at a gas station and of course found ourselves in front of 2 water facetts. One was labeled "white water" & the other "colored water". So of course we choose the colored one-- Until my parents stopped us & told us we could only have white water. We didn't know why until it was explained in the car later. My colleagues, only 10 or so years younger than I were shocked that it had happned in my lifetime. I am so thankful that my child will not ever see that! What a backward country!!!

740- what a boring world it would be without some color in our water! out of the mouths of babes... good for you and your parents.

The slaves were bought from people that already owned them.Whitey didn't go over there and capture them. That didn't make it right but it and more is still going on today in countrys that don't have anything we need and the world wears blinders.

Jeez, you think an hour and a half practice in shorts and helmets twice a day is rough? They will get tired of watching film and listening to coaching cliches though.

Mauritania has a higher per capita rate of slavery today than the US ever dreamed of in its heyday.

When I was very young I was at Leonard Brothers department store in Fort Worth with my family. I saw a black man drink from the "white" fountain. I thought that was really bad.
