Random Monday Morning Thoughts

Exclusive Picture Of My Maid
  • Do Hispanics not go bald?
  • I went to ZestFest, basically a salsa/pepper convention, this weekend at the Will Rogers convention center because me loves me some salsa. And the place was absolutely packed!
  • The right wing is nuts. (Pics of the "Tea Party" in Washington this weekend.) Truly, the Wordkyle's of the world have to be embarrassed by that.
  • The History Channel had a 9/11 film called 102 Minutes That Changed The World. It was nothing but amateur footage with no narration. I was riveted.
  • Craziness of the Weekend: Serena Williams foot faults and then has to give up match point because of a tirade on a line judge. (Great pictures of it.)
  • I haven't seen the CW's Vampire Diaries, but I got a hand full of emails telling me about the female stars pulling a publicity stunt by getting arrested for flashing motorists. The "hey, now" book in photo are here.
  • We to El Paseo restaurant on Jacksboro highway and got to watch a little kid defy his dad time after time. "If I give you this chip you better not throw it." Then he would throw it.
  • And the couple next to us looked like they were having an affair. There was just something weird about it.
  • UVA played TCU on Saturday but the Grand Entrance of a guy on a horse didn't go so well.
  • For the millionth time: Just because I let a comment go through doesn't mean I condone the comment. Sometimes we just need to know the craziness, hatefulness, and the bitterness that surrounds us.
  • I'm too beaten down to even comment on Kayne West's interruption of Taylor Swift at the VMA's last night.
  • For Fantasy Football Fans: Would you feel comfortable if your opponent was starting a Cowboy heavy lineup of Tony Romo, Felix Jones, Patrick Crayton, and Roy Williams? I did. Then I got killed.
  • The line on the Texas/Wyoming game was 31 1/2. UT won by 31. That should drive Texas bettors crazy especially since Texas sleep walked through the first half.
  • I dreamed I had a black baby of Saturday night. And that's all because a few hours earlier I was watching a football game with someone who said, "Look, there you are" in reference to a player with "Green" on the back of his jersey.
  • Saw this tweet from a lawyer I just follow for fun: "Matt Skillern has Agg Asslt trial Monday n 230th Dist Ct. Husband-Wife n mutual knife fight. Good facts & he's well-prepared. Tons o' fun!" Huh? Even if you think you'll win, it's not fun. There's simply too much on the line.
  • The older I get, the more I appreciate the weekends.

If the people in those photos represented more than a small percentage of those opposing Obama, I'd be embarrassed. But that's not the case at all. Most of us express our opposition better. The people in those photos are expressing their distrust of Obama in the only language they know. (Similar to Liberals who couldn't stop calling Bush "Hitler" for seven years.) Could they have used less inflammatory descriptions? Sure, but demonstrators tend to be a little more expressive. Because they opened themselves up to ridicule with the expressions they chose, I wish they would have chosen better. (Check here and here to see exactly how small a percentage they were.)

Funny thing I noticed: Those pics were obviously chosen to show the demonstrators in the worst possible light. Yet there's not a single racist sign among them, nor any mention of Obama's race. Not a one. And these are the worst they could find.

853 - What's a "teabagger?" It's obviously an expression that Liberals are familiar with, because they use it all the time. I don't know of any Conservative or Republican who has ever used that term. As for the people attending the tea parties, they seem to be the ones doing the kicking.

Funny how Bush never complained once about the protests against him. Fact is, he only said that we are fighting for the right to free speech, and all of our other rights.

Barry.. I have been following you for years and its seems you have gone soft the last few months, more and more "no comments" or "comments disabled" after a short period. I understand that some of this is getting out of hand and I also understand that you allowing them does not mean you support or approve, there is a difference. All of that said, I think a large part of the population lives in a world that is not the world I live in. They do not see the hate, the anger, the lack of compassion, the racism and so on. I think your blog exposes people for what they are.. As it takes zero integrity to post comments on here anonymously i.e. your maleness is in a mason jar somewhere and not on your person. So hooray for you, but I think you should let it go further than you do nothing like calling someone a nigger to show how ignorant you are.

From http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/

In a rational world, there ought to be citizen rage towards the government that transcends -- indeed, that has little to do with -- divisions between the so-called "Right" and "Left." One saw the incipient emergence of that sort of citizen anger during the rage over the Wall St. bailouts and AIG bonuses, where the divisions were defined not as "conservatives v. liberals" but as "outsiders" (citizens of all ideologies who were enraged by such blatant corruption and stealing) v. "insiders" (who defended it all as necessary and scorned the irresponsible dirty masses who were protesting). The real power dynamic in this country has little to do with the cable-generated "right v. left" drama and much more to do with "outsider/insider" divisions, since the same corporate interests control the Government regardless of which political party wins.

But these protests end up expressing themselves in dichotomies that are largely besides the point -- "right v. left" or "Democratic v. GOP" -- because that's how their leaders define it. These protests, at their leadership level, are little more than Fox-News-generated events. That is notable in itself: it's extremely unusual (if not unprecedented) for a political movement in the U.S. to be led and galvanized by a "news" media outlet; that's usually something that happens elsewhere ("opposition television or radio stations" sponsoring street protests in Italy, Venezuela, Rwanda). Fox News and Rush Limbaugh are part of the class that has long controlled and benefited from Washington, and thus promote a view of the world based in the Douthat/Luntz "having someone else benefit": "the Democrats are socialists coming to steal your money and give it to the poor, the minorities and the immigrants." As a result, citizen rage is directed towards everyone except those who are actually responsible for their plight.

wordkyle said...

To date, the "leadership" of the tea parties/townhall protests has been ascribed to, variously, Fox News, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, the Republican National Committee, freedomworks.org, americansforprosperity.org, the American Liberty Alliance, Big Oil, insurance companies, rightprinciples.com, Dick Armey, Sean Hannity, and probably the Loch Ness Monster. Still hard for some folks to believe it all started with a single protest in Seattle. Whoever the leader is, he's doing a good job.

You are joking right? Every major news network, most major newspapers, CNN, and MSMBC have been on their knees, sucking off Obama, since he first announced for President.

'"the Democrats are socialists coming to steal your money and give it to the poor, the minorities and the immigrants." As a result, citizen rage is directed towards everyone except those who are actually responsible for their plight.'

Uhhh. Is that not exactly what Obama said? Check the Joe the plumber incident.

Geez, he has not made a secret of it.

Anonymous said...

10:59 - Are you kidding me? Pres. Obama has not said one disparaging word about the congressmen from South Carolina. When asked, Obama said SC guy apologized, and he accepted.

True, many others have been in an outrage, rightfully so, in my opinion.

Obama has been nothing but gracious.

Anonymous said...

Well I clicked over to check the signs in question. Yes there are some absurd things there. Those people apparently feel we are taking the country in an absurd direction. I'm pretty sure there was an equal amount of absurdity tossed about when the republicans controlled The gov. They just seemed to ignore it better than the thin-skinned liberals.

However, I read through most of the comments on that site and couldn't help but notice something; the acrimony is becoming so intense that it's hard to see how we won't start shooting at one another sooner or later. That, my friends, will be civil war, and it will be anything but civil.

I think the republicans will win if it comes to that. They're just meaner than all the queers and women on the other side. Anyway I'm putting my money on them mostly because I think mean is a better way of addressing the Muslim threat that comes next. Trust me, those loonies are playing for keeps and the pussified libs aren't going to save you from Sharia. The Conservative loonies may or may not.

Think long and hard about the tides of change. Treading water isn't always your best defense.

Hi Wordkyle and 5:51,

When I posted the article from Glen Greenwald, I almost left off the second paragraph to keep the right wingers from getting offended. I pasted the link to the whole article hoping that folks would read it all. The article is meant to discuss the fact that seeing all issues as right vs. left, dem vs. repub, lib vs. conservative, is our main problem.

Barry could post a comment about a wart on his ass, and there would be 100+ comments from both sides on whether the elephants or donkeys are to blame. The fact is that ALL politicians lie to their base to get elected. Once elected, they serve the interests of the high dollar donors that got them into office (and will keep them there).

George W Bush and Barack Obama didn't/don't represent us. They represent insurance companies, defense contractors, financial institutions, pharmaceutical companies.

Does any conservative really think that John McCain or Sarah Palin gives a shit about abortion? Does any liberal really think that the final healthcare bill won't be a huge gift-wrapped present for the insurance companies?

We, as the middle class in this country need to pull our heads from our asses. Our government (for the last 30 years) exists to take our money and give it to the Haliburtons and AIGs, not a bunch of poor blacks and mexicans. But we rarely get upset over corporate welfare (which includes defense spending) and get bent out of shape with the fraction of money given to the poor. Haruumph!!!

It was the largest group of protestors ever in Washington Saturday and there was not a single arrest. In any large group, there will be a few extreme signs!

In contrast, the SEIU, ACRON, radical environmental groups and labor don't have to protest because they are doing just fine under Obama!

Of the two groups, which ones are radical? The right or the left. Seems to me the left has more extremists and more radicals.

Now Obama will be speaking before auto workers and labor today. How much will more pay back for their support cost us?

If everyone would just stop thinking Republican/Democrat and start looking at the corruption and pay back, we could unite to clean up Washington.

Don't come back and say it has nothing to do with racism, check out the signs at the protest over the weekend or "read" the blogs on this site and then tell me it isn't racism.

wordkyle said...

1134 - I checked out the photos from the protest that Barry linked to. Not a single mention of Obama's race or color on the protesters' signs. All of them (even the over-the-top ones) protested his policies and political philosophy.

Since I assume you weren't simply lying to support a false, malicious accusation, is it safe to assume that you have links to other photos (that support your charge of racism) from the protest on 9/12? If not, why did you make such an accusation?

Accusations? Have you not seen the one where he looks like a tribal witch doctor? Did you see the thousands of signs printed by the pubs and handed out at the rally about burying "Obamacare with Kennedy"? Now that's full of class. Or the ones threatening to show up next time with guns? Come on, get a clue. The guy heading it up accuses Obama of being a Nazi and socialist, now you know that is totally ridiculous. Open your eyes. You cannot tell me that racism is not involved here. It was all over the television (at least 2-3 different stations) and they too were blasting the tasteless posters and comments these morons were making. I agree that people are free to speak their minds but show a little respect and some class. Obama is our President. The whole world is watching this chaos and it is REALLY embarrassing, especially when we use to be the "example" for the world to follow! All this rhetoric does nothing but push us back into the times of the segregation era. Let's all move forward and just TRY to get along.

Silly little liberal nobody was saying Bush himself was humorless. Put President Obama in that place and you would be going on and on about how gracious and good humored he was and defend the fact he was joking.

I know it's a fact you would have to be somewhat dissasociated from reality to be liberal anyway but, to so consistently interpret everything in the world through your myopic viewpoint is just bizarre.

OK, I promise not to tell you that.

"you think our government would allow rightwing nutbuckets to start a war and sit back and watch?"

As far as the military goes, just like everyone else, I assume they would choose up sides. As someone else said, they are mostly conservative, constitution loving folks. Let's see, who might they support?

"if all hell breaks loose, something would be done...go soak your teabag in a cup of urine and drink it."

But not by you, right? Since you do not support war and all.

You get more vile by the second, don't you?

156 - So what you're saying is that you could find no evidence of any signs from the protest that denigrated Obama's race or color. That's what I thought.
