Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • A mass murderer flying under the media radar: 10 bodies have been found in and around a sex offender's home within the last week. I may a couple of references to Jeffrey Dahmer and look what happens.
  • Man, Fox News was giddy last night about a spare Republican winning a spare Governor's race in Virginia saying it was an indicator that "America was rejecting Obama's policies." Puhleeze. It's Virginia.
  • And the GOP did lose a Congressional seat in New York. That might be a little more important.
  • Dirk had 29 points in the 4th quarter last night. Don't care.
  • Matthew McConaughey is 40 today. Hear that ladies? 40.
  • I'm pretty sure this most boring trial in the history of ever is going on in the District Court in Decatur right now. Something about whether a bridge is public or private and whether the county should be responsible for maintaining it.
  • I just look at the lawyers involved in that case and wonder if that's what they envisioned for their lives.
  • Not much noise about the Bridgeport/Decatur game this year.
  • Still not sure about the new Fox 4 Good Day girl.
  • When the news reports that constitutional amendments "passed with flying colors" what exactly does "with flying colors" mean?
  • There are always wet/dry alcohol elections to legalize the sale of the stuff, but is there ever an election to convert a wet city to a dry city?
  • Weird: Three college softball players go star gazing and end up drowned in a pond in their vehicle.
  • Awkward moment when a little kid decided to run beside me in a park two days ago while I jogged. What should be a refreshing and cute moment was ruined as I feared his parents were watching him with concern because he was running alongside a stranger. Cute kid though. Looked like a little Forrest Gump whose leg braces had just fallen off.
  • More on the death of plaintiff's lawyer John O'Quinn who died in a traffic accident after missing a flight: "O’Quinn called . . . at around 7 a.m. to say he was on his way [to the airport] and to ask [fellow Plaintiff's lawyer] Christian to see if Southwest Airlines would hold the flight for him." Really? Hold a flight because you are running late?
  • The Jacksboro Sheriff's Office have a "Search and Seizure Sergeant"? Not so sure about that.
  • A jury in Fort Worth is struggling in the guilt/not guilt phase of a capital murder trial. Used to be, if the State wanted the death penalty they would get it. Now they struggle with even getting a conviction.
  • Junior Miller on The Ticket yesterday described his running of the New York City marathon on Sunday. Man, that sounds like a great experience.

Anyone else notice that the Jacksboro Search and Seizure Sgt. has the same last name as the third defendent that was already in jail?

Could be hard for her to go to the family reunion!

The spare idiot attempting to serve in the office of president of this country thought the governor elections in Virginia and New Jersey were much more significant than you do, Barry. I am sure you are upset that he wasted a good deal of time appearing on those spares' behalf.

FLYING COLORS, WITH - " 'We came off with flying colours.' George Farquar, 'The Beaux's Stratagem (1706). Victorious; extremely successful. The term comes from the practice of a victorious fleet sailing into port with flags flying from all the mastheads. By 1700 or so it was being used figuratively, signifying any kind of triumph." From "Fighting Words: From War, Rebellion, and other Combative Capers" by Christine Ammer (NTC Publishing Group, Chicago, Ill., 1989, 1999).

Virginia was a "Big Deal" because Obama won Virginia. Makes sense to me!! The congressional seat lost in New York was won by a spare. As much as the Dems hate to admit it, it's becoming obvious a majority of American citizens are tired of their B.S. and ready to see them go. I just can't wait until Obama, Reed and Pelosi are up for re-election. It's the quite majority they need to concern themselves with, not the loud mouth, idiot protesters such as the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons and Van Jones of the Country. Obama, one and done, thank the Lord!!! And......if you're a person who voted for Obama and believe you're better off now after his first year, you need to re-evaluate. Oh Boy, that comment is bound to piss some people off.

The cow comments (mine, at least) were in reference to today's random pic. C'mon, look at her!

Not sure what the arrival comment is about. Are he and spouse expecting, or what? I don't keep up with what's going on at SO

Well think about this BG. Virginia hand't given its electoral votes to a democrat in 44 years until Obama won them in '08. Perhaps the fact that a state taht conservative went liberal and is already tired of the crap is some what indicative of what's to come. We'll know this time next year I guess. Oh, and don't forget about Jersey either.

And it wasn't just Fox News that thought yesterday's election results important.

"Now they struggle with even getting a conviction."

That is good to hear- I'll rest easier tonight.

PS- "flying colors" from days of yore when a fleet would return to its home port if they had been victorious in battle they would have every flag they owned flying from every mast on every ship.

The bridge case is another classic example of our County Commissioner Richardson doing the wrong thing to the people of Wise County and spending our tax dollars like pigs at a feeding troth.

Land locking people from their property that they have had in the family since 1800's should be criminal.

Mike don't care unless you are one of his buddies. Boring trial it may be but this is what attorneys should be for. Helping the working family and trying to get a fair shake from a crooked county.

i agree, the hype for the battle of big sandy is not there this year. the WCM sports, which has dwindle to nothing the last month or two, had the least media hype of the game in todays paper than i have seen in more than 10 years.
hell, we knew bridgeport was going to throttle the little birds last year but they still hyped it up.
oh well, bulls win two in a row whether the messenger likes it or not

If only we could always count on hearing less about Wise County sports...or any other for that matter. Some of us just don't care!

Really? I voted for Obama and am STILL glad I did. At least the U.S. hasn't sunk lower and lower as the Bush administration was allowing it to. Read the paper and don't be so selective about which articles to read! Also, if you paid attention to the exit polls in Virginia..less than half of the people of Virginia turned out to vote for this "so important" governor's election, of which half included blacks and young adults. They didn't give a damn about yesterday's election; however, they did care enough to get out and vote for Obama...get a clue! Enjoy your victory and savor it, for in 2012 you will be sucking lemons AGAIN!!!

Dems STILL rock!

Anonymous said...

10:26, The U.S. hasn't sunk lower? Have you seen the unemployment rates and the quadrupling of the deficit? How about the value of the dollar on world markets? How's that hope and change working out for you?

Anonymous said...

10:26...That's great, you voted for Obama and are defending your vote, I get that. I also voted for Obama but I am beginning to regret it. All he has done so far is show that he can't stand up to the republicans, and hasn't put and end to the Iraq or Afgan wars. On top of that he toured the middle east on an ass kissing campaign that made me want to puke. I thought his change to foreign policy was going to be an intellectual change, so far he has failed on this as well.
I really see he is just another crooked politician, not a man of conviction willing to fight for his values.

I think an 18 point win by a Republician in VA. signifies something is happening among traditional democrat voters. And a 5 point win by a Republician in NJ is unheard of. The congressional seat vote was split by the republician candidate and a conservative party candidate or it would have remained republician.

Pass the Pelosi bill and watch what happens next year.

Anonymous said...

Conservatives really should pay attention to NY-23. The Republicans annointed a moderate to run and the red-bloods purged her for their own fire-breather, Doug Hoffman. Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck really did that (losing) candidate a lot of good. A Democrat has not held that Congressional seat in a century. Keep purging the moderates from your party and you will wind up a regional party that dominates the south but is marginalized in every other location. Obama didn't need to win Virginia and North Carolina to win the Presidency - those were just nice additions to his electoral victory.

I dreamed the girl in the picture was my momma, and I was a bottle baby. Okay, so who won the

AMEN TO THAT! The retardicans can enjoy their small victory - not like any of it will affect them here in the State of Texas or nationally.

Like I said, pay attention to who actually voted and how many actually voted in comparison to the presidential election in each of these states. It speaks VOLUMES!!!

Just remember Obama has been in office for 10 months - it took 8 years to do all the damage he is dealing with...small and marginal memories ya'll choose to have!

Blah Blah Blah

...and Obama and Biden spent two weeks campaigning for their lap dog candidates in VA and NJ and they both lost big.

In NY-23, the MODERATE (pro-gay marriage and abortion) Republican candidate dropped out on Saturday and backed the DEMOCRAT. Of course the lefty won. And you retards act like this is earthshattering.

Funny how liberals' egos won't allow them to admit they are wrong.

Democrats problem in Virginia was that they nominated Creigh Deeds instead of Box O'Rocks. Box O'Rocks would have drawn more votes.

Anonymous said...

Jarhead-

Did you miss the point of NY-23? Forcing a hard-right candidate into the race and forcing out the moderate helped the conservatives LOSE that congressional seat. We are not talking about a seat that is traditionally Democrat. A Republican has held that seat since the 1800s! A century! I hope that conservatives continue to feed their moderates to the wolves and continue to lose elections - there is no better gift to America than an out-of-power GOP.

New Jersey and Virginia historically elect a governor from the party that's out of power. Do some research.

If the turf had not been bundled into the bond it would have passed. I don't like feeling as though I'm having my arm twisted for someone to get their way. We do need the improvements but not the turf.

Jarhead said...

11:41,

If those excuses make you feel better, then I'm happy for you.

Oh and looking at a list of governors from VA (didn't check NJ) it looks like VA had a democrat as governor from 1886 to 1970. Quoting you: "A century!" Historically? Gimme a break, rookie.

Perhaps you, my friend, should do some research before popping off. Or did you just hear that on some liberal apologist's website and regurgitate it here?

That's what I thought. Buh-bye.

Also, election of note. Gays lost another one in Maine. They have now lost in all 31 states where they have challenged the traditional definition of marriage at the ballot box. Their only successes have been where mindless judges and soul-less legislatures have gone awry.

Should have kept the turf separate on the ballot..................Then the bond would have passed.......heard lots of people say , "yeah, I would have voted yes, but I wasn't for the turf and all the athletic stuff"

The answer is for Bridgeport and Decatur to rent the Cowboy Stadium for the Battle of Big Sandy.

That would satisfy everybody at least one time a year.
