Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • The lawyer for the Ft. Hood shooter sounded really smart on the radio yesterday (NPR) but looked really wheels off on TV.
  • I don't think TCU is a bad team. I think they are really good -- probably Top 10 worthy. But if they lose on Saturday, they'll never live it down.
  • While you were sleeping: A family died and their two dogs in a North Dallas fire overnight. Fires in North Dallas get more publicity than fires in South Dallas.
  • When the news of the retiring of Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle broke, there is not a fan of The Ticket that didn't think, "Did you not like your job? I'm mean, did you not like your gig? That wasn't the question."
  • Fox 4's news footage "of the inside of the Fort Hood shooter's apartment" last night was a little silly. But I was shamefully interested.
  • I completely missed the Country Music Awards last night. Not that I would have watched, but I would have at least given it a couple of minutes. When did Taylor Swift become a superstar?
  • I replaced a tub faucet last night. It's the easiest job in the world assuming that screwing the thing on is even considered a job.
  • Oh, man. Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean, the chick that gets naked on camera but is anti gay-marriage, went nuts on Larry King Live. This is three and half minutes of entertaining video.
  • I want the Mavericks to fail because I detest their coach.
  • If I ever committed a heroic act (very doubtful), and I was to be interviewed on TV, one of the conditions would be that the word "Hero" not appear on any on-screen graphic. I've been seeing that a lot lately.
  • Everyone on the radio was talking about the Oprah show yesterday where a disfigured-monkey-attacked-lady made an appearance. You know, I have no desire to see her face. What's wrong with me?
  • The Ft. Hood shooter made $90,000 a year? (Or so I heard this morning.)
  • A guy tries to send flowers to the Ft. Hood shooter and the FBI gives him a visit? Both acts are equally offensive.

I'm with you Barry. Heard the Hardline talking about the Oprah Chimp Woman, and had not interest in seeing it. Just their responses when they saw it was enough for me...

What a JOKE the FBI is. They go after an old man for sending flowers but don't do anything about the crazy shooter while he is contacting enemies of the US.

The shooter is a terrorist...just say so Barry...it is ok.

There is more nudity on this blog than there is in the photos of Carrie Prejean. The fags and their media supporters are lying.

#1.. its LOSERS!!! Just one O

#2.. of course the ft. hood shooter is a terrorist. Not because he's brown, muslim, etc... BECAUSE HE COMMITTED AN ACT OF TERROR... Terrorism does not mean u were connected to the ppl who flew planes into the twin towers.. contrary to ppl's beliefs... terrorists exist in all colors... and they existed WAY before 2001

As an urban, African American what I want to be knowing is dis; now, dat little white girl they be makin a hero out of got shot up some yeah but, so do LOTS of folks in my hood. What I want to axe you is dis, that idiot camel jocky major still be shootin peoples AFTER she shot at him - the brother police man is the one that brought him DOWN. Why she be in the news ALL day long and no one heard anything from the brother?

He not good enough cauze he black?

What's the shocker about 90k for a major in the army? Been too caught up in the liberal lie of underpaid troops? They make good money for only being required to have a hs diploma.

Yeah, nobody had ever heard of Taylor Swift before she won that VMA, or whatever that was. She writes her own songs and can play a musical instrument, so she's got most of the other "musical artists" beat, country or otherwise. Kanye is a self-promoter; she just happened to get in the way

And the word is losers, not loosers. I think you must be a loser if you can't spell something that easy...or you've got something loose rolling around in your skull

And I concur that taking your clothes off for the camera and being anti-gay marriage are not incompatible

jim said...

Why is it mzcreep declares that I'll probably be quiet from now on then my last four comments dont come thru? I understand me stating my opinion may not fit yours Barry but I clearly said it was gossip I heard! Are you simply trying to make mzcreep look smarter in her assumptions? Or are you just continuing your trend of running loyal Chico readers down and suppressing there comments when they try to defend themselves????

HA! Pete Hart is not cut out to be a head football coach. I'm graduated from Chico, played for Pete, went on to college and got a degree and doing well. So I guess the definition of a loser is pretty loosely written. Pete is a great assistant, just doesn't have the intensity to exploit talent. He is too worried about being a friend.

Why would you detest a man you don't even know, that would be very similar to hating someone just because they are Muslim or gay. Let me guess, you have already attached a label to the man due to nothing more than his appearance on TV. BG you need to practice what you preach, so many times your posts contradict the compassionate, intellectual, free spirit image you try to portray to your readers. Your hatred for those who don't share your beliefs quite frankly scares me.

Anonymous said...

9:38 that's all you have as an argument is a spelling mishap. WOW.

Anonymous said...

9:54, You need to go back to college and learn how to write. "I'm graduated from Chico" is not good sentance structure. Just saying.

Anonymous said...

Boy, do I ever wish my computer had a read-check so I could understand what some of these posts say with such bad grammar and incorrect spelling.

I love the ones who correct others and brag on themselves saying, "I'm graduated" - 9:54

As far as the nasty gay bashing beauty queen goes, she's kind of like Sarah Palin - just keeps digging herself in deeper and deeper - pure comedy.

There's more to the game than just winning. There is not anyone on the team that I know of that would disagree with your "friend" comment, and in Chico - those kids need a man who cares about them - instead of a bunch of has beens trying to live on the field through their kids.
Could it be, that maybe you are "doing fine" because of that friendship and role model?
To me, "intense exploitation" is a term that would fit - Let's see - Hilter, a pimp, or YOUR MOMMA. HA! - right back at ya.

Not a fan of Taylor Swift; she's just not that great in my opinion.

Don't care to see the monkey lady or hear from any of Oprah's guest in the past 3-4 years. She's gone off the deep end with racism and spiritualist crap.

As for the fires, in north Dallas the homes are generally expensive and well-built so it's NEWS. South Dallas is a ghetto, with hovels instead of mansions, so when they burn themselves up, that's just not news...it's expected.

Correcting a spelling error is not an argument, it's a statement of fact. Plus, the commenter at 9:34 already beat me to it
I'm not weighing in on the situation in Chico with Coach Hart. I don't know enough about it for an opinion. My stance is that if you want to insult somebody by calling him a "looser", you don't make a very good case for yourself if you can't spell a simple word such as that one.
kplain enough?

Barry, why is it that you let Mzchief run her mouth, but you refuse to post comments from others? When you run your mouth like she does, you deserve what you get.

Anonymous said...

Since this is a "skattershooting" comments section let me bring this up, did I miss anyone commenting in recent days about the Decatur HS pa announcer's lame attempts at humor during the DHS v BHS game. Four man football scores with goofy team nicknames? No one I saw even hinted at thinking it was funny. He did the same stuff in 2007.

And what was up with the endless recogniztion of DHS students? The halftime alone ran over for 10 minutes. Not to mention the pre-game. Anyone who was a senior had their resume read aloud.

For someone who is so anti Oprah, you sure make a lot of comments about her Barry.

Why?

When I was watching bits of the country music awards last night I was struck by Taylor Swift's remarkably weak pipes. And then Carrie can just BELT it. And TS's dance moves are just SO awkward and unfortunate. Beauty goes a long ways, I guess...

Taylor Swift is awful!!!!!!!!!!!
Whoever told her that singing off key and shaking your hair makes you a star is STUPID!!!!!!!!!!

Enough with the giggly teenager already. She needs to be on Nicklodeon not on the CMA's.

Her fan base is all under 12 anyway.

Just saying....

There is some local talent that thinks that they are much better than Taylor and they will tell you how much better they are. It's always good for a laugh to hear them at Frilly's or to watch them on Youtube.

I know I'm late here, but could someone please tell me what this refers to? Thanks! I'm not conversant with Ticket speak.

Barry - I agree with your comment about the Mavericks. I don't like the coach either. He has gotten rid of some really good talent. He benched and ended up refusing to play a player last year because he did not like this person. He relys too heavily on Dirk and Kidd just sucks.

$90,000 salary is for an officer who has a medical degree. Much less than a private sector MD. Rank and file troops make in the
20s to 40s. Many young military enlisted families qualify for food stamps.
