Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • The TABC raid of the gay friendly Rainbow Lounge in Fort Worth has lead to a ton of knee jerk reactions. How far has it gone? A city-sponsored diversity task force recommended yesterday that city insurance cover sex-change operations.
  • Our Sheriff had a 5 pound 14 ounce bundle of joy yesterday. Well, his wife had the baby.
  • The Yankees win the world series with nine players who make over $10 million a year and a total payroll over $200 million. And this is supposed to be a competitive sport? You baseball fans are crazy.
  • The serial killer I mentioned yesterday now has a body count up to 11.
  • I'm looking forward to Sarah Palin's book tour. There's no way she won't say something crazy.
  • In my endless journey to attend football stadiums, I thought about seeing an Arkansas game in Fayetteville this weekend. Except there is no easy way to get to Fayetteville.
  • And the fact that the Decatur County Court at Law scheduled hearings for late Friday afternoon didn't help my planning schedule.
  • Whataburger in Decatur now has some drive through traffic go to the outside lane where an employee will come out, deliver your food, take your money, go back inside, and come back with change. That beats me down and makes me feel compelled to tip.
  • Motorcycle death yesterday. Cooler weather = more bikers = more of these stories.
  • Saw a lawyer at a driver's license hearing in Fort Worth yesterday who had no idea what he was doing. And I see him in Decatur from time to time.
  • Huge Wise County employer Devon had a tough third quarter: They saw net income fall to half a billion dollars. Did I say half a billion? Yes. Yes, I did.
  • Two actresses I love that haven't had any fun girl roles lately: Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson.
  • Runaway Bay officers arrested a 17 year old yesterday for cussing. Yep, cussing. He spent the night in the Wise County Jail.
  • In 2002, Troy Aikman was called during halftime of a game he was broadcasting and offered the job of quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles. Really.

Any news on a coaches kid from Decatur going to jail for fighting in Bridgeport yesterday????

Barry again you slant the facts. The Teen arrested in Runaway Bay was arrested for disorderly conduct after using profanities in the municipal court (towards the judge) and refusing to leave. But I would not expect anything less from a liberal blogger.

Skip the meeting and drive to Fayetteville. It is only a five hour drive and very scenic when you get close to Fayetteville. Fayetteville is a gay friendly town so you should have lots of fun.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Ummm, Barry. I am pretty sure the mummy on the right isn't wearing anything other than bandages and glitter up top.

Not that it really is exciting to look at. Its more kind of... umm... the bad side of the Halloween Slutting Up phenomenon.

We would like to see the Sheriff and Mrs Sheriff's baby. Work on a pic for us. I have a co-worker that went to see her yesterday. We understand she is outstanding. Barry if you have the contacts. Post a pic for us to see

You should make the trip to Fayatteville. I went a couple years ago to watch my Auburn Tigers play there. The small mountains are rich in color this time of year. Great atmosphere too. Tailgating with the locals was fun.

Walked in the Sheriff's room last night at 830 and he was holding his baby. She was sleeping in comfort knowing she was in good hands. I don't have a pic but I bet we can get one if we ask. He is so very proud

8:46 That is exactly how rumors get started. There is absolutely no truth to that whatsoever. Don't even be trying to start something that you obviously no nothing about.

Your afternoon pick-me-up for yesterday said it was for Thursday. Are you predicting the future now, bu bear?

I feel the same way about people bringing your food out at fast food restaurants--the Chicken Shack in Btown does something similar. I feel kind of creeped out by myself when I realize how much I've come to prefer digitized interactions.

Barry - American Eagle flies to XNA which is Bentonville, Fayetteville NW Arkansas Regional Airport. Plenty of flights because it is Walmart headquarters.

The Blog is a great place for rumors!

CNN just reported that President Obama has resigned.

WOW!

If you're time constrained you could fly to NW Ark Regional Airport. It's a relatively new airport a short drive from Fayetteville. American Airlines and American Eagle have about eight nonstop flights daily from DFW.

Tax payer funded insurance for city employees paying for sex change operations, WTF does that have to do with promoting diversity or protecting homosexuals from discrimation. How about the insurance paying for therapy for those folks considering such a procedure. Liberal politics at its finest; I can't wait for the libs get ahold of my tax dollars for Heatlth care; I sure they will spend every dollar wisely....I mean, isn't it time we started paying for vaginal reconstruction surgeries for prostitutes. Shame on us hard workin' folks for not being more f#*@*#g compassionate.

No doubt about Sarah Palin's crazy comments. If she doesn't make any herself, someone in the media will invent some and attribute them to her. That's close enough to be considered "true," right?

Anonymous said...

Sorry, today's photo doesn't do a thing for me. FYI - Halloween is the time of the year for all female staffers to dress like hookers.

Yes, people have to "invent" crazy things about Sarah Palin. Riiiiight.

People don't have to invent crazy things about Joe "Hairplugs" Biden. The guy is a walking gaffe machine and he is next in line for Commander in Chief.

Goggle Eyes said...

Alright. I'm going to speak up and defend today's Morning Thought girls. I like the two on the right. They'd clean up nice. The one on the left would do after a beer or twelve.

wordkyle said...

RPM -- Yes, right. Just a few days ago on The Daily Show media genius Jon Stewart referenced Sarah Palin's being able to see Russia from her porch. Chuckle, chuckle, snort, snort from his audience. How many of his worshippers still believe she made that claim, hmmm? C'mon, fess up -- didn't you still believe she said it? It's on Comedy Central, so it must be true, right?

Sarah Palin had ZERO problems before being chosen to run for VP. She had an 85% approval rating. The GOP loved her, the dems liked her.

A female, gun shooting, conservative, smart woman. The LIBERAL media could not have that.

So they have vowed to destroy her by any and all means. They should be ashamed.

"They saw net income fall to half a billion dollars. Did I say half a billion? Yes. Yes, I did."

EWWWWWWW, nasty company making a profit. They should give it all away to crippled children.

Lord, please protect us and what is left of our once great economy from these brain dead liberals.

Please keep them the f*ck away from the remainder of the economic engine, competition and a bit o profit.

And this is supposed to be a competitive sport? You baseball fans are crazy.

Hey genius, the Yankees have spent on salaries like drunk sailors for decades. Much more than the other teams.

How bout you check and see how long it has been since they won a championship before this one?

Competition, yeah.

Well I heard somebody on KUNT TV say Obama was a Negro but ever body knows he's white.

Anonymous said...

you are so right, 12:59. Palin was unbelievably popular in Alaska before the liberal media tried to take her down. she has more intelligence and poise than any other politician on the horizon in a really long time. I hope she overcomes the crap from the media, runs, and wins by a landslide next election. She'll have my vote. Biden is totally a joke!

Palin is as smart as the people in Wise County.

wordkyle said...

Regarding Palin: Imagine the different view the public might have of her if the McCain campaign had as much control over the press as Obama's campaign did. Without those "gotcha" interviews (courtesy of CBS and ABC news, among others - and Fox News is accused of bias?) Palin would be regarded in a very different light by the non-indoctrinated public. Does everyone remember those hard-hitting interviews that unexpectedly tested Obama's knowledge? Anyone? Anyone?
