Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The Wise County lawsuit over the hurt finger at Sid Richardson is over: Girl didn't get any money. Sounds like the girl didn't deserve any money.
  • Personal injury cases never go to trial any more. I bet Wise County, once the hot bed of Plaintiff's litigation, hasn't had more than two of those type of cases go to trial in the last six years.
  • Odds are 18 to 1 that TCU wins the football National Championship next year. All odds here.
  • I listened to only a few minutes of the governor debate last night. Man, Rick Perry stumbled over his words and sounded very inarticulate. That isn't like him at all.
  • Libertarian Debra Medina is probably the best choice between the three.
  • The NFL Network replayed the 1975 Dallas/Minnesota "Hail Mary" game yesterday. Three plays before the famous Staubach to Pearson bomb, Dallas completed a 4 and 17. I'm old enough to remember that, but I didn't.
  • And after the Hail Mary, a referee was hit in the head with a thrown liquor bottle from the stands. The NFL replay yesterday conveniently cut that part out.
  • Re: Dallas cop who sent nude photos of himself to a 17 year old girl (among other infractions). Uh, the defense of, "I don't deny all of the allegations but I question the integrity of the investigation" is not a good defense.
  • Watched a little of Reno 911 last night. It sure is pushing the envelope these days (but still very funny.)
  • Interesting quote from the owner of the closing J&J Blues Bar in Fort Worth: "J&J fell victim to an aging fan base and an increasingly sober society, said Schusler, 72. He noted that average liquor sales per guest over the past five years dropped to $9 from $19.47."
  • Having monitored the situation for years, I think people are more responsible drinkers these days.
  • I'm coming around on Forgetting Sarah Marshal. Funny but not Real Funny. (But it's definitely a movie that gets funnier with age.)
  • More crazy cops: An off duty cop in Plano smashed into an on duty Plano cop this morning. There are so many government employees that they are smashing into each other these days.

How could Medina not be the better of the three? Tired old Repubs just don't get better, just meaner.

BG, it's hard to keep up with your sporadic movie assessments. You need to post a consolidated listing of your "-est" movies in different categories. (funniest, greatest, disappointingest, worstest...)

damn ann coulter is getting sexier every time i see her!

I concur on Medina being the best choice. The first 30 minutes of the debate were hysterical with the sniping between Perry and Hutchison.

Anonymous said...

I agree that Medina came across as the best candidate running in the Republican primary. Perry came across as not knowing what the heck is going on!

Anonymous said...

I'm not a libertarian but considering my choices, I'll be voting for Medina. My thought at this time is to vote against everyone up for re-election regardless.

Wonder what TCU's..or Boise State's odds would be if their 2010 schedule looked like this: @ Florida, @Alabama, South Carolina, Florida State, @Miami, Ole Miss, Tennessee, @ Georgia....etc.....

Chico hires a new athletic director to replace Pete Hart and your not all over it?

Anonymous said...

irony: the Dallas officer with a ton of allegations against him throwing the word "integrity" back at the investigators. Way too many questionable activities for this guy
What will the top cop, David Kunkle, do? That's not the question...what will he DO?

Another good line from the J&J owner: He said if somebody called asking for directions, he would hang up on them. The place has been there for ages, and he figured if the caller didn't know where it was, they didn't have any business being there

You watched a rerun of Reno 911. It's been canceled for a couple years now.

9:16 agree with you about J & J Blues Bar. What a great businessman! My business is going down and I am going to chase off any new customers. We have a regular Donald Trump there!

Medina is running as a Republican, not a Libertarian. Check out her website or facebook page. Maybe Barry is calling her Libertarian because of her states rights stand? I am voting for Medina.

What's up with the Ramdon Girl's left leg?? No fishnet hose on it and it kind of looks like it's been (poorly) photoshopped into the picture.

Something fishy there....

Old news. He was hired on Monday according to the Texan who has his picture on the front page this week.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, the girl's left leg does look kinda weird, but notice that the top of the stocking is white, not black. So she has obviously mismatched the set. Not a deal breaker for me, though

If Medina was a Libertarian, is there any chance she would have made it onto the stage with the other two? It was a debate between Republican candidates

Hey, have any of you received a January check and seen how your withholding taxes have gone UP? Yes, King Obama is taking MORE of your paycheck. Some good stimulus plan, huh? sheesh!

Well, the Random Skank of the Day is a tiny bit better. Had to agree with the other poster.......where's the rest of her stockings?....ER...maybe I don't want to know.

"..Man, Rick Perry stumbled over his words and sounded very inarticulate. That isn't like him at all...".......
BG!!!! BG!!! BG!!!
Slick Rick has been sitting in front of the mirror combing his hair his whole term....hasn't had a clue about anything going on in Austin. Now, all of a sudden, either he's out of hair spray or he realized it's election time, and he's siging tax bills left and right....not know what half of them contain.......we're screwed again.........


"He noted that average liquor sales per guest over the past five years dropped to $9 from $19.47."

Does he not realize the cost of Viagra and Geritol has gone up over the last few years?....GGEEEEZZZZ....give some of us a break

RPM said...

J&J's had some great music, but that place was a dive in the classic sense.

Unfatcat said...

Yes Ms Medina is a Republican that unfortunately doesn't get much money for her campaign so one of the two faux Republicans will win the primary. I just hope that neither of them win the general election. Hell, I'd vote in the Repub primary if I though Medina stood a chance. But I would never vote for Gov. Goodhair or the pinched faced Ms Hutchison who I've never liked. She reeks of big money and big Corporate donors.

If the cop had worked for Rhome...he would have been able to keep his job, the Council and Chief have no ethics..They all break the law...

Unfortunately, Reno 911 was canceled in August 2009 after the broadcast its last new episode for its final season in July 2009.

I will be voting for Medina. Any fiscally responsible politician who recognizes the rights of landowners is better than Bible thumping PRick erry...(opps... and/or Kay Bureaucrat Hutchinson who voted for TARP in spite of 88% of Texans opposing TARP.

That screeching, skank of a harpy, Ann Coulter has NEVER looked sexy and could not even in her wildest self-satisfying fantasies.

Anyone man who, honestly, finds (M)Ann Coulter sexy is probably into ugly dudes.

Reno 911 couldn't recover from killing off half the original deputies in a fiery crash. RIP Garcia, Clemmy and Kimball.

I liked Medina too. She has my vote.

Withholding went up because last year in it went down for the "making work pay" credit, but they had to give the credit over less than 12 months. We get the credit in 2010, but over the full year, so our withholding went up.

Too bad he survived. Dude was already brain-damaged as evidenced by the "no-call, offensive pass interference" on Drew Pearson pushing off Nate Wright to catch said Hail Mary.
