Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • I swear in Fort Worth yesterday I saw a vehicle traveling the speed limit on I-30 west of downtown. So? It had three wheels and was shaped like a rocket! (It was headed the other direction and there's no way I could get a picture.)
  • I like Subway but I hate going through the line and answering so many questions. I just want to order. Once.
  • I think this country will turn into a group of race based regional provinces one day.
  • I don't know anything about the Twilight books/movies but I saw the newest trailer for the second movie. What I liked: The concept that you can only see someone at the peak of an adrenal rush. Ergo, you look for adrenal rushes.
  • I watched 30 minutes of More To Love last night. I felt like I was watching an overweight Days of Our Lives.
  • All this ACORN stuff Fox is salivating over doesn't do much for me. Any group of any size has reprehensible individuals within its walls. We have cops involved in child porn, judges disbarred for sexual harassment, military men killing innocent Iraqis, priests who are pedophiles, Governors with paramours in Argentina, and investment companies that steal billions off Ponzi schemes. Look out that window.
  • Speaking of Ponzi schemes, if you don't know who R. Allen Stanford is, go to the next bullet point. If you do, you'll be interested to know that the Caribbean Con Man (I'm going to copyright that by the way) now has a lawyer you are paying for.
  • Had the most tense moment ever in a driver's license hearing yesterday as a normally mild mannered administrative judge got royally pissed off at a DPS prosecutor. And I was just watching in the audience.
  • How much money does Northwest ISD have? First they build the gawdy Byron Nelson High School for the residents of Trophy Club and now all high school students are getting netbooks.
  • If you listen to any sports media at all, you can't avoid Dallas Cowboys TE Martellus Bennett doing his schtick everywhere. Here's an idea: Do something on the field first.
  • One Dallas County Commissioner to John Wiley Price yesterday at their weekly meeting: "I can explain it you, but I can't understand it for you." Wow. But not a bad line.
  • Rep. Joe Wilson was formally admonished by the House of Representatives yesterday for his "You lie" comment last week. Good. (But Jon Stewart on The Daily Show said he was surprised that Wilson didn't die on the spot due to Nancy Pelosi's angry glare.)
  • Things that bugged me in 2001, still do.
  • A 9:31 youtube video about the Tea Party in Washington last weekend. Interviews. Liberal slant. Fairly entertaining.
  • I hate the response in an argument of "Oh, yeah? What about what you did." You'll actually see it in political arguments on the talk shows.
Edit: A great faithful reader has seen the Rocket Car and sent a pic:

I love Subway but I know if they would just move out of the way I could make that sandwich ten times faster than they do. Let's open it up to buffet style!

You got something against Netbooks?

John Price is a former appliance salesman, why would he necessarily understand something? Because he was elected to some office?

Guess which school was working on there water fountains?

Kanye in Jackassville said...

ACORN probably wouldn't be such a big deal if they had not been included in the stimulus package. Then again, the stimulus package was stupid so why not throw it around to every sorry organization around.

Surely you can even admit at times there are bad people on both sides of the political spectrum.

Obama should be applauded for calling out Kanye West. I hope he doesn't back off his comment.

The U.S. and the rest of the world will be divided by religious segmentation instead of racial. The Muslims will have a lot of power.

DHS will be handing out some type of electronic device to all high schoolers next year. It's a great idea.

There have been days at the Subway in Decatur when there is no tea and it is only 12! You ask them will there be more tea made and they say no! We don't have any more. I say go to Walmart and get some tea!

What did you expect from a dating reality show? They all pretty much resemble soap operas:
Drama
Scheming
Hook-ups
Drawn out close-ups
Cliffhanger endings
The only thing missing is SAG cards w/union fees. It would be funny is the actors' unions took action and said "Um, yeah, you guys are taking money out of our pockets, so we think you should have to join our unions."

I was trying to think up something about the stain on her pants leg, but 9:18 pretty much nailed it

Nancy Pelosi's angry stare - that really only works on four year olds

8:15 - How dare you insinuate that you can do a better job than the employees at Subway. Don't you know that those folks are Sandwich Artistes?

From Yesterday's random thoughts:

•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."

From today's random thoughts:

"All this ACORN stuff Fox is salivating over doesn't do much for me. Any group of any size has reprehensible individuals within its walls."

If people are associated with the right they are nuts and if they are with the left they are an anomaly. Inconsistant.

Just priceless. How to possibly argue with the mind of a liberal.

Pwned!

Your things that bugged you in 2001, and still do:
If you find a soft drink at a convenience store for $1.09, buy it! That's a good deal nowadays
And, yeah, Strom Thurmond is dead, and Ed Belfour doesn't work here anymore. WFAA's John MCKay - it's McCaa (I think)
This one I don't understand: "How people forget that John Wayne was an actor who typically acted as if he were a cowboy." ??? Are there many people out there now with a misconception of what the Duke did for a living?
Or this one: "Bush's reading of a speech as though it was written by someone else - which it was." Did you want him to act as if HE wrote the speech? Everybody knows politicians (the prez, specifically) don't write their own speeches.

Always annoying when the Subway or Starbucks employee "works down the line" asking what people want, and then when you get closer invariably you have to repeat it.

Ha. I'm adding that to the repertoire.

My understanding is that ONLY the Byron Nelson high school kids are getting those netbooks at this time ... which of course is par for the course... because EVERYONE knows that kids in Trophy club are BETTER than the rest...... IMAGINE HUGE EYE ROLL HERE PLEASE!

so feeble of people to be jealous of other school districts but, what can you expect from people living in a school district that's below average

Anonymous said...

@ 8:18 & 9:31

Please, for the love of God, stop capitalizing 'netbooks' – it's not a proper term. It's just a word that means 'shitty, tiny laptop.' They are an uncomfortable segment in-between full-sized notebooks and smartphones, not a miraculous new product, and just a way to make cheaper crap. Personally I don't want a penny of my tax dollars spent on the pieces of junk.

Skippy, Why is it that only FOX is covering ACORN but all the other things that bug you are covered extensively by all the other news outlets?

She said "par for the course" while on the subject of Byron Nelson HS.
Funny...unintentional maybe, but funny
Wonder how many times that line gets thrown around at that campus?

I think one other thing we can all agree on is that line about how "I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you." is a great put-down

The Commissioner that made the comment to Price is from Boyd. Graduated in 1969.

More breaking news!
I was just officially "admonished" for looking at a pic of the rocket car on my Netbook, while eating a Subway sandwich. Wow! Adrenal rush!

So Rep. Joe Wilson was officially "scolded".
Oh no!
Is that going to be kept in his permanent folder?
Will he not get a good reference for future employment interviews?
Think he really gives a !@#$? (The question mark there is actually a question mark, not part of the expletive)

11:41 - Get over the N!etbook thing. Nobody is claiming that they're the greatest invention since the microprocessor. Plus, they're only being used for schoolwork. Sounds like a good idea, spending less than it would cost for full-sized computers.
Besides, if you want to get technical, wouldn't it be more correct to call them 'netbooks, or possibly net'books? You're quibbling over 1 - One! Capital Letter

Northwest seems to have lots of money but my daughter is being asked to help furnish balls and etc for the playground + they are having the kindergarten do fund raising for playground equipment. I don't know what other grades are part of the fundraising, probably all of them. Why is playground equipment not part of a budget?

2:18, they are. Question is, Why aren't they being repaired? Usually they spout "money" because they have possibly transferred money from this account into that account and that leaves the M and O account empty. Budgeted money doesn't always STAY in the correct account.

Great news for Northwest ISD. I remember when that place used to be a dump. Now, the kids are getting netbooks and their teachers are some of the highest paid in the state. Compare that to the suck-ass Decatur ISD, with "Meat Lab" (thanks Elton McCurdy for being such a visionary) and "Auto Mechanics" where the children of tomorrow learn to lead through car repair. Glad I got out of Decatur to raise my family elsewhere.

4:54 pm Elton did a lot for people. Many local Volunteer Fire Departments have benefitted from his donations. Elton makes sure our Firefighters have the equipment they need to do the job. Last time I checked, the World still needs Butchers, Cattle Raisers, and Auto Mechanics. Just because you feel you are superior to the people in these professions, does not mean they are not honorable career choices.

the wc mess sports sucked in the 90s and it sucks again. must be the some person writing it again. oh wait, it is.
the football pregame is horrible ... why even do a lineup thingy when there is no scouting report? and the harris ratings are a total waste when you dont even list the pick and the point spread.
the cross country and volleyball coverage is sickening. no facts, no qoutes and i guess noone cares to show up to see what really happens.
aside from that stuff, all the accidents on update never have names anymore. do they not show up to get facts anymore? i cant beleive them losing one reporter effective both sections of the paper.
while on my soapbox, have need to get rid of that constable that wants the pay raise. he is the biggest cop wannabe EVER! listen sir: go to the police academy and be a real po po.

Whats the deal with the fund-raising anger? It sounds like its directed at administration. Don't you think it is more about what parents and teachers want, not what they need?

Oh, and by the way, PTOs are usually responsible for fundraisers, especially at lower grades. PTOs go to the school, ask what the school would like, and then do the fundraiser.

I've talked to administrators and teachers who think fundraisers are crazy. But let's not forget the helicopter parents who can't understand why the school wouldn't want help with something, anything?

From kindergarten, these same parents go from the PTOs to the Athletic Booster Club and guess what? Artificial turf, Indoor practice facility? Next is a group of parents that tell the school they can get a few hundred thousand dollars to try to get an indoor practice facility but can't deliver except for some fencing around the old stadium.

This sounds like fundraising on steroids. So, who is to blame again?

Finally we have an opportunity to comment on what is really going on in the news; the recent ACRON scandal and how our tax dollars are funding corruption and voter fraud. Guess Barry finally heard about it but Charlie Gibson didn't know.

This organization that is suppose to help poor Americans, register voters, get government backed loans for housing for people who can't afford to pay the mortgage needs to be completely investigated and all funding pulled.

The two young conservative activists did a great job by filming several offices help them set up a brothel and bring in under age girls to be hookers. How disgusting?

The difference in individuals going bad and a government funded organizations being corrupt is where the responsiblity for punishing those who are guilty. A goverment run organization is harder to stop. The way to stop it is to shine light on it like Fox News has done.

If you chose to ignore it and just pooh-pooh it away, our country suffers and taxpayers are cheated! And the poor people it is suppose to help are sold down the river!

The young parents of kindergardeners are just getting started, trying to save for everything from retirement to a college education for their children. The PTO turns them into nothing more than solicitors... under the auspice "for the good of the kids". Same damn reason for the turf!

2 problems...

A very small percentage of cookie money gets to the kids, and those parents who pitch in are also helping those who are not making the same effort to invest in their kids education... doesn't seem right or fair.

It takes less money to just add optional items to the childs school supply list. Those parents who choose not to invest in their child's education now will be the same ones not saving for a college education.

But go ahead, get them out selling cookies... American children need to know they are entitled to the extra money from neighbors and business. Parents should feel guilty if they don't sacrifice their savings for cookie money.

Why are we considering turf when teachers and PTO have kids soliciting to buy the tools they want to help educate them?

BTW, no one gives more to kids & their fundraisers than me! But that's because I'm a right wing conservative extremist...
