blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: I Didn't Know There Was An App For That

I Didn't Know There Was An App For That

For 99 cents you can get a "911 Scanner" app for the iPhone that includes a link to the Wise County Sheriff's Office? And look at that fancy "record" button. Then again, I've had it on for five minutes and haven't heard anything. Someone go commit a crime so I can test this thing.

I am downloading that one...I remember I had several friends parents growing up that would listen to the sheriff's scanner, find out where the teens were partying that night, and show up to get their kids..then call the other parents. We were stupid at first, never could figure out how all our parents would find out. If you ask them they would just say something like, "You don't get this age by not knowing what is going on" or "Don't worry about it, just know that I always know where you are".

Barry is wanting to deflect some heat from the last post by throwing this up, wonder which thought is bugging him?

If you think you're going to hear something exciting from the Sheriff's Office, think again! All you will hear is the deputies calling out security checks all day on businesses that are open! I guess Walker and Whitehead think the public is impressed by that. What a joke!!! So much for enforcing the law.

Come on BG, this iphone app thingy is not going to get everyone's panties in a wad. What about posting something about the Columbia Professor that punched the lady in the face because she was white?

I love the blog, too, but it's pretty boring today...don't care about Ft. Hood, the sheriff's office, football, or obama's latest shenanigans. Wish something truly interesting would happen!

I can't believe nobody has jumped on the fact that Barron the Barrister is encouraging people to commit crimes so that he can test his new app thingy.
"Your Honor, my client is not guilty, because I told him he should do it. But since I didn't do it, don't blame me!"

You think the low crime rate in Wise Co. is a joke? And since no crimes are being committed, and the deputies are maintaining a high profile in the community, that's a joke?
You should get together with 10:36 and go on a crime spree. That should liven things up

Hey Barry here's some breaking news out of porta potty town. Pete hart just got fired at Chico. Figured u could beat the messenger to the news.

Not even worthy of a thread? My feelings are hurt.

mzchief said...

If Pete Hart was fired as coach of the Chico Drangons then today's interview on Coach's Corner will be his last. Coach Hart did not mention anything, during the interview, about being fired. As a matter of fact, the interviewer commented about seeing Coach Hart next year on Coach's Corner.

I certainly hope Pete Hart leaving the Chico Dragons is nothing but a baseless rumour. Pete Hart is a man of rare character and integrity.

There are plenty of crimes, plenty of wanted people - just check the warrants at the sheriff's office. However, they don't stop anyone, don't search any cars to find anything stolen or drugs, just drive in circles and call out security checks. We get punished if we try to do our jobs... Yes, that's right, your sheriff doesn't want us to do anything,,, might lose a vote.

jim said...

No debate about that mzknowitall but a winner he will never be. Plain and simple a 10-70 record gets you fired.

To jim & anonymous 12:55...
Perhaps, all the craziness with Kyler Hale and and a few other varsity football players getting busted, last May, for engaging in sexual acts with 13 & 14 year old girls had something to do with another losing season for Chico.

The fact 1/2 the kids who play Chico football are mostly retarded and become academically ineligible after the first game is another problem Coach Hart has to deal with each season. Do you think it is the gene pool or the drinking water that makes the kids mostly retarded?

jim said...

I think if you check history before hart Chico won and won consistantly. Maybe the "retards" moved in with him. Oh and sorry for the broken windows this weekend ahead of time. Playing me a little golf this weekend and going to love playing next to your house... :-)

Anonymous said...

Mzchief,
I agree with you, I know someone who graduated from Chico and he is somewhat retarded I think because he can't read past a first grade level. Also he can't even begin to reason any type of simple math problem whatsoever. For goodness sakes he doesn't even know the order of the months of the year. Example he has no idea that January is the first month of the year, or that June is the sixth month of the year. It's absolutely crazy and they graduated him and he is now in the Marines. Scary. He thinks he's going to be a jet mechanic, but I've got news for everyone he will be downgraded to janitor at best.

mzchief said...

To Jim...
Chico football sucked before Pete Hart became the coach.

Thanks for the heads up about you being a crappy golfer and/or a vandal. Since you have no idea which house is mine, I will be certain to check with my neighbours and see if they have any broken windows this weekend and send them your direction.

I'll be sure to tell myself as well as, my family that mzchief thinks we are all retarded due to either our gene pool or the drinking water in Chico.

Mzchief, you are talking pretty nasty about Chico. Some of us have followed the Dragons since the 60's. We have had winning seasons. No one said that Pete Hart is not a nice guy but you saying that half of the kids are mentally retarded is just plain mean

jim said...

Previous posts smarty. That and the lovely taxnetusa and we have a winner. And FYI. You might want to check those facts about Chico before you state them. Couple district championships right before hart got the job. FYI -2. You dont who you are calling a retard and you DONT want to go there. Move on

I know this sounds cruel but next November let's make signs that point to the Chico Port-O-Potty farm so the liberal weenies will know where to go vote.

2:15...I don't know about the Marine thing. I know a guy who was slow bordering on retarded, in remedial classes all through school, who joined the Marines and they thought he was great. He did well and was actually a team leader or some such nonsense. I find that says a lot about our armed services and the quality of people they enlist, at least nowadays, when the "smart" find something better to do with their lives. The military is a catch-all for the can't do anything else people.

Mzchief oh mzchief....why in the world would you even care to know or be concerned at all with anything Chico or football. Someone with your self described sophistication, education, and extensive worldly travels discussing something as mundane as Texas 2A football, or more specifically the employment status of the coach at Chico. This subject material should be well beneath a person of your stature.

High school football talk should be reserved for us little people, ya' know that turn wrenches for a living and got our education working for a local farmer during the summers and after school. Some of us even made it to university for a while, maybe like Tarleton, or Midwestern; our extent of worldly travel is primarily Cancun or maybe Cabo. So, with all due respect, spend a little more energy on comments about sewing, housekeeping or hell even fine dining, things you might know something about.

mzchief said...

Geezzzeeee!
People, pay attention and get your knickers out of a wad!

I said "mostly retarded" and nothing about the intellectual capacity of the flunk out footballers. Kids who lose their academic eligibility to participate in athletics in a public school are, without a doubt, MOSTLY RETARDED. Their retardation can stem from being lazy, without focus and/or poorly educated. My question about the source of their retardation was seeking clarification as to whether the retardation stemmed from their parents or environment.

You Chico people who got your bowels in an uproar are making me rethink the prospect of there being sever MENTAL retardation in Chico.

Seriously people, THINK before you go running like lemmings off of a cliff.

What did Pete Hart do before he came to Chico? And, was Russell Black to one to fire him?

mzchief said...

To anonymous 2:29...
If you have truly followed the Chico Dragons for any length of time you are aware that Chico was bumped from a 1a to a 2a school the year Pete Hart became the head football coach. I believe Chico is still the smallest 2a school in their district. Yes, Chico has won in the past but they certainly did suck prior to Pete Hart's arrival.

To anonymous 3:06...
Of course someone like you, with limited intellect and an even narrower mindset, would not understand how someone, as well educated and worldly, as myself would take an informed interest in the mundane bourgeois events of small town life in Chico but allow me to state the obvious, you do not know me and have quite the propensity for assuming much with few facts which has rendered your assessment of me, incorrect.

To all the Pete Hart Bashers-
Let me tell you that its a bunch of CRAP that if they fired him just because he didnt have winning season.When you don't have the talent or a large number of kids wantin to play,you don't have much depth to begin with!as far as the kids failing,that shows you what kind of "athletes he had to choose from,I mean if they gave a rat A#@ about the game ,they would give a little more effort to pass to get to play.So don't be BLAMIN it all on him,He's a coach,not a MIRACLE worker,and I wish him the best of luck ,and if and when he's blessed with kids who will apply and dedicate them self,I hop he rams it down Chicos throat,because he knows the game of football.and he knows the game WELL!!!And i'm sure i'm not the only one who feels this way about him...thanks for the memories Coach Hart

Hey Mzchief, 3:06 here, and by reading many of your comments it is to see you are the one who has cornered the market on ignorance and narrow mindedness. It is also easy to see you know very little about small town life. Good, honest and caring people do not ridicule those who are down, no matter if they are from the city, or a small town like Chico. We encourage them, or just help them out in some way; a thoughtful comment or gesture can go a long way.
You are correct, I do not know you nor do I care too. You are a negative, Diva type that is full of hatred. You also have a complex with your physical image. You probably spend countless hours working out, and have had or are open to plastic surgery. At some point in your life you have been fired or reprimanded at a job due to your issues with authority most likely stemming from a strained relationship with your father. You have numerous aquaintances but few if any real friends. You keep exhaustive track of your "friends", your address book is electronic and your records are always up to date. You get a real rush out blog confrentations, but in person you avoid them. Lastly, you seek approval from your husband in odd ways sexually, nothing is off limits.

Jim, Jim, Jim, tsk, tsk if you're smart enough to have a masters degree you wouldn't live in Chico AND you wouldn't tangle with the MZ.

Thought people would have figured that one out without prattling on about their 'degrees'.

Renny, you can hear the WCSO on 158.805. WCSO dispatches the Boyd PD, so you will hear their traffic on the WCSO frequency.

Your best bet for DPS is 155.445 (Sherman DPS Dispatch) or 159.2175 (Denton DPS Dispatch).

You also might check out 154.950 and 155.370. These are inter-agency frequencies. You can find tons more yourself at www.radioreference.com.

I was a teacher at BISD when Coach Hart was a defensive coach. The football players and student body loved and respected him. He knew how to motivate the players and they gave their all for him. He in turn loved those kids and truly cared about them. I know Pete Hart personally, too, so I know what I'm taking about.
And as a former teacher, I can tell you, I don't care how great of a teacher you are, you can only do so much with what you are dealt.

Excellent comment.
**********************************

To anonymous 8:20...
You were correct when you stated you did not know me. However, you are such a an ignorant, petty git you then felt compelled to prattle on about things you claim to know about me based on your own warped view. Obviously, when YOU are deriding the intellect and psyche, of me, you are projecting.

You did get absolutely correct the fact that I keep an electronic address book with up to date records which enables me to NEVER miss one of my friends' birthday, anniversaries or day of remembrance for a spouse/child that has passed. Only someone as low-brow as you would consider that a fault.

It is odd and extremely telling that you would consider a rawking sex life, based on pleasing a spouse, something that is to be derided.

Based on your issues, perhaps you should quit your day job and go full time into therapy and perhaps then you will have a hope in Heaven of getting over me being me and get on with you being you. But of course, since it SUCKS TO BE YOU it makes you feel better to hate me.

Pete mentored countless boys, not just football players. Every year, Pete was the closest thing to a father figure NUMEROUS boys had and he STILL keeps up with COUNTLESS students.

8:20 Mz, thanks for validating my observations of your obvious narcissistic, compulsive behavior. This is crux of why you have no real friends and feel so compelled to hash out against the masses via blog. My point about your electronic address book was to highlight the fact that you are keeping count so to speak, to massage your ego. Mentally healthy people do not feel the need to do this, they just remember those important people around them, good record keeping or not; with you it is an obsession. My bet is you have surrounded yourself with people that have an inferior backround to you, or that have a social disorder which allows you to treat them poorly without consequence. You would never be seen with someone you felt was more attractive or intellegent, unless it gave you the opportunity to name drop later on. Your confidence is contrived, and you are extemely jealous of anyone who displays true self confidence.

PS...Let me know how that S&M is workin' out for ya'! Me being me has got me along way, I think I will stick with it; as for you being you all I can say is good luck. I don't hate you I pity you.

mzchief said...

To anonymous 8:20...
There you go, projecting, again. All kidding aside and with sincere honesty, you really need intense psychiatric help and your constant miss diagnosis of me is an indication of the depth of your psychosis. Someone who is mentally healthy would not have their nickers in the twist that me being me puts yours. Keep in mind, you turned me defending a football coach into YOUR diatribe about me.

I am merely someone who comments on an Internet Blog whom you have taken the time to attempt, without the necessary education, to psycho analyze. You have admitted to having paid close attention to my past commentary and have bothered to take the time to formulate an opinion about me over an extended period of time. As far as I know, I have never encountered you until this current exchange. You REALLY do need help. Incidentally, your tone and the topics you have addressed indicate you do NOT pity me, as you claim, but are indicators that you do envy and intensely dislike me. On the other hand, the tone of my responses do indicate pity and disdain for you.

Again, your commentary about my friends is merely you attempting to project onto me the dismal state of your personal relationships. Just because you believe your shallow acquaintances are skanky, low-rent and beneath you does not mean other people/I cannot be life long friends with doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants and small business owners. Keep in mind, my husband of 23+ years is a highly respected professional. Three of my best friends, of over 20+ years, are SMOKIN' HAWT. When a person has as much going on and as many friends as I have, you bet, INTELLIGENT people keep an accurate address/date book. My electronic date book is called a BLACKBERRY BOLD. Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of inputting personal data along with a friend's phone number in a smart-phone keeps important dates on their phone. You really are a cretin who is grasping at straws.

As for S&M...I have never been into pain and degradation but you sure seem to know a lot about it but it does not seem to be working out very well for you.

Let us hear your next pathetic plea for attention. If you were not bashing me no one would be paying attention to your pathetic simpering. I completely understand how someone like you has a problem with someone like me being me. Get over it, there will always be people like me who ignore the likes of you and are only made aware of you when we have to scrape you from the bottom of our shoe so as not to track you indoors. Consider yourself scraped from my shoe.

I have to agree with Judy. Pete Hart is a great coach who cares deeply about his students. Who else would have stayed this long if they truly did not care about the well being of the kids!! A person can only do so much with what they are given. Thank you Pete for all the time and effort you have given to all your students over the years. I wish you the best in the future.
And I am not afraid to sign my name.I was taught if you are big enough to write it, you're big enough to sign it.

Mz...8:20 again. You just really continue to prove my personality profile of you. Your only response ever is spin, pure spin. I thought it was exceptionaly telling you felt the need to "profession drop" in attempt to describe what type of friends you seek out in attempt to feel self worth.
Were you really defending a coach or ridiculing a town? Your attempt to call my comments "a plea for attention" is absurd, no different than your ramblings about me; if you were going to ignore me you would have never responded initially. You can try to convey pity with your tone because you do not know who you are dealing with, I can emphatically have pity for you because you so venomously spew hatred that is so deep you are definately miserable.
I am glad you know your way around a smart phone, I would be more impressed if it wasn't like 2009.

PS...The "me being me you being you" bit is more tired than a $2 whore on 2 for 1 night!

Coach Heart is a great man and a great motivator. I played for him in Bridgeport and as a player I'd follow him to hell and back.

Can't help the kids in Chico are used to losing and don't or won't listen to a man who would only make them better and stronger men.

A shame. I was honestly surprised when he took the job knowing what he would have to deal with down there...

I am a huge fan of Pete Hart. Chico was lucky to have him and if he is truely leaving they are dumb for letting him go. The parents and students of Bridgeport were sad to see him leave when he went to Chico. Chico parents and students have NO IDEA what an awesome guy he is because they expected him to walk in and work miracles with their kids. As for the football team...you have got to have some talent. I'm not saying that the boys in Chico don't but the attitudes SUX something terrible. If you are not FROM Chico or your family doesn't have the $$$ to keep up with "jones" then your kids are over looked. Pete did not stand for those sorts of things in Bridgeport but in a small town like Chico they don't allow the teachers and coaches to help those kids they are only concerned about their own spoiled rotten brats. Between the sex scandal and parents not making their kids keep grades up and parents not forcing their kids to respect not only them but their teachers then this is what happens. Pete was respected by all students and parents. There are a lot of Bridgeport graduates that THANK him for helping them and encouraging them because he is the reason they made it to graduation. I wish Pete and his family nothing but the BEST in the future because they deserve it! God Bless the Hart family.
