Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Minor point about the Cowboy game: The Denver kickoff in the 4th quarter went out of the end zone? Yeah, thin air. But, mercy.
  • Jacksboro's new high school stadium has a video board that has instant replay.
  • I'm insane now.
  • The Star-Telegram ran a story about a 24 year old real estate guru who is supposed to be some self made man. The story reads like a fluff piece and make me wonder what's really going on. (Sentences like "In 2004, using financial aid and a $100,000 loan from a fraternity brother . . . . " make me roll my eyes.)
  • TCU is in the Top 10 for the first time in 50 years? (Per Fox 4 this morning.)
  • They didn't win, but Romo's 50+ throw to Sam Hurd in the 4th quarter was good stuff. That being said, Sam Hurd is a spare. As is Roy Williams. As is Patrick Crayton.
  • It's shocking how The Right celebrated Chicago not landing the Olympics (since it was a chance to bust on Obama). I thought Limbaugh and Hannity were going to have to smoke a cigarette.
  • Saw these signs everywhere this morning: DecaturSingles.org
  • ESPN's Fantasy Football went down on Sunday afternoon. For the World Wide Leader, that is ridiculously unacceptable.
  • Gas fuel pump issues made me go to three different ones this morning. Think that drove me insane?
  • I don't believe statements like, "All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them." I think that still makes me normal.
  • Remember when Montblanc pens were all the rage?
  • Entourage is pretty funny this season. Curb Your Enthusiasm is great.
  • Eight Ten U.S. soldiers dead in Afghanistan over the weekend. Let's get out of there.
  • Tech coach Mike Leach banned his player his players from using Twitter last week. Some say that's a violation of the First Amendment. You know, since Tech is the government and Leach is a government agent telling a citizen they can't speak, there may be something to it. I said "maybe."

You act like the right wingers are the only ones that will bash the president for any reason. Both sides are shameless when it comes to that. I am sure that many republicans are as ashamed of the radical right as I am of the radical left. By the way, nice picture.

I know of no one celebrating Chicago not hosting a near future Olympic gathering. Quit making hasty generalizations about people on your right or left...it is stupid. You cannot blame anyone for Chicago not getting the bid...look at the nuts that went on their behalf.

The SNL opening skit on President Obama was great last night. Is it just me or have the last 17 years been the best for political humor on SNL.

Stupid idea Barry. You want to bring the "killing field" home to America so we can have another 911.

"Eight Ten U.S. soldiers dead in Afghanistan over the weekend. Let's get out of there." -- didn't Obammy make a campaign promise to get the troops out? What...he's sending more in?

"It's shocking how The Right celebrated Chicago not landing the Olympics (since it was a chance to bust on Obama)." -- The Crazy Right is just happy to have some highly publicized proof of how ineffective Obammy is. Really though...how seriously do other countries take us when we send Oprah along with the president? The rest of the world is laughing at us.

Denver will be tested for the first time all season next week against the Patriots. Are they really a 4-0 team?

The Olympic fiasco reveals to us that the remainder of the world sees Obama as the weak, clueless community organizer that he was. There is a good hidden message for Opra as well.

wordkyle said...

Obama's Olympic failure is perceived as weakening him politically, making it more difficult for him to achieve his domestic agenda. Why would those who oppose his policies not be happy about that perception? Accurate or not, fair or not, the message is pretty clear: Obama lost the Olympics for Chicago. As plenty of modern-day Cassandras predicted before the election, the charm that Obama casts over his American followers doesn't seem to work when it comes to accomplishing anything internationally. You can't say you weren't warned.

What if you are wrong there mr armchair general? What if those true professionals we hired and trained to do defense for us actually know what they are doing? That having battle hardened troops and intelligence in that region is a good idea when the conflagration finally manifests itself in muslim nuclear Pakistan/Iran. Or will the slaughter of 7 million more Jews be OK with you?

I'm gonna go with the pros on this one cause you're an idiot and a wussy too.

SNL was great with the opening skit of how Obama has done nothing since election.

How in the world the Obamas thought their speeches about themselves, instead of why Chicago would be a great place to host the games, weakens our country. He should not have gone unless he knew he could bring the games to our county.

If they could get some good speech writers it would certainly help.

Who gives a flying F&^% about Chicago and the Olympics. Rio got it because they could put up the most money and South America has never hosted an Olympics. As much as I think Obama is wasting our time and money, he had nothing to do with the Olympics. I am a Republican, but think it is stupid and embarrasing to bash him for the Olympics. Michelle on the other hand, what was she doing there and Oprah? If you want anybody to blame, blame her dumb ass.

Also, is it just me or do we (America) feel entitled to everything?

What you critics don't see is that Obama's loss on the Olympics is America's loss. Any red-blooded American who loves to see the American flag raised and the national anthem played when one of our own wins a gold medal should blast the Republicans' giddiness over the loss.

I can recall crying along with millions of Americans when our hockey team beat the Russians and won the hockey gold in 1980. Where were those games? Lake Placid, New York. Euphoria spread all across the nation, not only because we beat the mighty Russians, but also because it took place on American soil.

When Carl Lewis and Mary Lou Retton dominated the 1984 Olympic Games, we all beamed with pride because they represented the United States on American soil in Los Angeles, California.

And when Michael Johnson stormed around the track to obliterate the world record in the 200-meter dash (since broken by Jamaica's Usain Bolt), we relished the win as he took a victory lap around the stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

Americans love home field advantage, and we always desire to show the rest of the world what we are made of.

I don't care if Republicans want to rip President Obama over going to Copenhagen, Denmark, to pitch for the games. This isn't about politics. It's not about ideology. This is about America. OUR pride. Our chance to shine. Our loss of the games.

So, to all the critics happy about us losing the 2016 games, turn in your flag lapel pins and stop boasting of being so patriotic. When an American city loses, like New York did in the the last go-round, we all lose. And all you critics are on the same level as the America haters all across the world.

You should be shouted down for not backing your own country. The next time any of shout "Buy American" or "Support our troops," remember this moment when your cynical, callous and small-minded brains happily rejoiced when America lost the 2016 Olympic Games.


FOR ALL OF YOU HATERS, JUMP ON A PLANE AND FLY TO AFGHANISTAN AND FIGHT AGAINST OUR COUNTRY - YOU CERTAINLY ARE NOT PATRIOTS OR AMERICANS WHO LOVE THEIR COUNTRY!


GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Just me or did the link on the 10 dead soldiers bullet take you to a site that said,"Want a great costume idea for Halloween?" or something like that?

Hard, hard, complex decisions there but, the one thing you can count on when Afghanistan falls- Pakistan goes with it (likely very rapidly) from there WHO knows?

10:14, When Carl Lewis won the gold medal and Michelle Obammy was in her twenties sitting on her daddy's lap was a proud moment for me too.

As for the "war" in Afg., explain to me, 8:48, why the US removing our troops from a war that shouldn't concern us would "bring the killing field" home? You sound like a true drama queen, in every sense of the word. We get in these idiotic foreign wars because we think we need to solve everyone else's problems for them, which is the heighth of arrogance. Sure, let's get our boys killed while we try to prove how big and powerful we are....just plain crazy.

How about we just hijack the Games and host them here every four years? That should make you as happy as a little girl!

I'm not rejoicing that we didn't get the Games, but the president using his time to lobby for it is ridiculous. Is he really so deluded that he has that much influence? And the first lady? What was the point of her trip? She has zero influence on the international stage and Olympic proceedings. Same goes for Oprah. The gullible cows in this country might bend over backwards for her, but that crazy behavior stops at the border

I don't give a damn what you think about me or the Olympics. You are probably in the minority any way regarding the Olympics.

I never said I agreed with ANY war. I think we should end the war in Afghanistan and Iraq; however, I do support our troops even though they should be brought home. They are there under the orders of Bush. How many years ago was the phrase "Mission Accomplished" spoken by an idiot?!!!

As far as the wars keeping the terrorists out of America - come on, if the terrorists want to come to America and fight, they would - and they will - no matter where our great military is fighting! Sick of that dumbass arrogant excuse that we fight our wars in other countries to keep them from fighting us here in America! What about the lives of all the civilians in these other countries that have been lost, no concerns there at all, huh?

I think this whole country needs counseling! Maybe we can get that passed with the health care reform bill.

Anonymous said...

Why would it surprise anyone that the most powerful people from Chicago would make an effort to get the Olympics for Chicago? Why would anyone think that was wrong?

And why would anyone think that the IOC's decision to put the Olympics in South America for the very first time would be a failure for the other finalists? Rio had them at, "Hola".

Re: "Killing Fields". If you take a war to the home base of your enemy then he is preoccupied with defending and killing troops occupying it. He has fewer followers left to work on blowing up buildings in America. If troops had of never landed at Normandy then Hitler would have won. I am no "Drama Queen", just a student of history.

Did you INTENTIONALLY allow a comment that exchanged the "c" in the word cunt for a "k" when the raging liberal douchbag at 1:34 was maligning wordkyle by refering to wordkyle as "wordkunt" or are you just not paying attention?

If the approval of the comment at 1:34 was intentional and is not deleted by the blog owner I will be adding my own personal alterations to a few well known terms since the blog owner does nt have a problem with obscenity so long as it is altered.

Are you going to let mzchief push you around? You deleted my comment!

Actually, I regret using the alteration of wordkyle moniker as it detracted from my main point. I made the post in anger, thus came up with the crude alteration. I apologize to wordkyle for the slur on his name. But, I stand by everything else written in the now-deleted post. Anyone else that may have been offended can F**K themselves.

Two last comments, then I've got to get back to work.

1) There is a constant stream of both subtle and overt racist comments on this blog. Funny how that doesn't get mzchief's attention.
2) Barry, please remove mzchief's post at 2:12 as it contains a word that might offend some of your readers. Plus, the offensive language makes her appear to be a "raging libertarian douchbag."

I was not pushing Barry around. I was merely seeking a clarification to the parameters regarding the language that was acceptable for posting on Barry's Blog. As for the racist comments approved and posted on Barry's blog, I find them offensive, disgusting and soul sapping, however, racism is just as offensive as is bigotry and much of what the Loony Leftist Liberals and Raging Right WingNUTZ post on Barry's blog reek of bigotry. Deleting racist and bigoted comments on The Blog would result in deleting much of The Blog's publicly submitted content as well as a significant portion of the content submitted by the owner of The Blog.

Incidentally, you voicing concern for the tender sensibilities of other readers as the bases for your request of the removal of my comment outing your vulgarity proves the depth of your intellectual dishonesty. You arrogant, elitist Loony Leftist Liberals are all the same in your belief that an offense is not an offense unless someone other than you commits the same offense.

So...okay...it's time to throw a log on the fire.
Get out of Afghanistan? Hardly. If we should be ANYWHERE in the Middle East it IS in Afghanistan.
During the gulf war, when we had the largest majority of the world, all of the Coalition on our side,the Iraqi Army all but destroyed and a VALID reason for going after Saddam, Georgie Sr. didn't.History will show he should have and failed. True, we had a clear and decisive victory in the Middle east and we won the war. We did not follow through.
On Sept.11,2001, we were attacked at home by Osama Bin Ladden. Fact.
Afghanistan was and is our enemy. Every ounce of energy, military strength and our total commitment should have been focused there. But, Georgie Jr., in his quest for eternal greatness decided that we should go after Saddam and all the none existent "weapons of mass destruction." Look at what all we have committed into Iraq. The lives alone of our American men and women who have sacrificed their lives and limbs for a country who was content living under a tyrant cannot justify our continuance there. We should leave Iraq...as promised by our ...."President"...and commit to the real area of focus.
Some people may and undoubtedly will make something out of the following statement, but, how many readers of this blog don't make something out of every post.
There was a time when this country was respected and ..for lack of a better phrase..feared. Not feared in the sense we were bullies, but, because, if you did anything to us, plain and simply, we were going to kick your butt.Viet Nam, media and anti-war protesters did more to harm this country than the A bomb.
Today, we can't interrogate prisoners and are required to afford them all the priviledges and rights they seek to destroy. They can decapitate an American on t.v., or kill an American, pull his body apart, hang it from a bridge and set it on fire, but, damn us as cruel if we deprive them of a daily bath ( which they have never been exposed to) or "fair" treatment.
To all of you "tree huggers" who back the "human Rights" issues, enlist and serve. I believe in human rights and fair treatment, but, let's make it an even balance. "Do unto others..."
Your one-sided objections you learned from a text book may change slightly once you've experienced what it's like to have to protect and defend this country. Those of us who have had that priviledge of doing so resent your lack of a real education. An education you can't obtain sitting in an air conditioned classroom paid for by Mommy and Daddy.

Hi mzchief, I'm 2:56.

I was going to come back with a devastatingly witty reply, but after seeing the comment by 3:38, I've lost interest.

I am definitely a leftist liberal loon and proud of it. I don't consider myself elitist or arrogant, but I guess that's for other people to decide.

Sometimes I avoid the comments section of this site so that I won't get angry about garbage like 3:38. But, this is the only site I know that appears to have fairly equal numbers of conservatives and liberals (and others) that comment. If you can wade the the crap, I think there are the occasional good comments from all sides.

Signing off for today. God bless and good night to all.
