Random Monday Morning Thoughts

Note: I've received reports claiming this is some lady from Boyd. I can assure you that it is not. But I'm very excited that someone in Boyd possibly looks like this.
  • It's a Chamber of Commerce morning here in Decatur: Pouring rain, lightening, and 40 degrees. Good times.
  • The Super Bowls sure have been good lately. Really good.
  • Probably the best moment came in the fourth quarter when play by play man Phil Simms said the Saints shouldn't blitz before a particular play. That was the play where they did blitz, Peyton Manning was rushed, and then threw the game deciding interception.
  • Sarah Palin had a cheat sheet written on he palm over the weekend. I'm not sure if that's really a big deal.
  • The Space Shuttle fired off again this morning. More money being wasted.
  • The Jay/Oprah/Dave commercial yesterday during the Super Bowl was really funny. Jay must have been doing damage control for his image.
  • If my home was still sitting vacant in the 9th Ward, I'm not sure I'd feel like a Saints win makes everything OK.
  • Armed military man outside of Super Bowl yesterday.
  • I like those E-trade babies. (Especially the one when they were on the plane.)
  • WBAP's Mark Davis likes homophobic humor?
  • Rick Perry has constantly run an ad dogging Kay Bailey for voting for the bank bailout under the Bush Administration. That's unfair. Even Bush was predicting, rightly or wrongly, that an economic meltdown if it were not passed.
  • So the federal government shuts down today in Washington because of Saturday's snowstorm. That means, the news tells me, 230,000 people stay home. Wow.
  • Holy cow: A dead man was found in the landing gear of a jet this morning that had flown from New York to Tokyo.

Military man - is a cop, most likely SWAT. BIG difference!

Todays pic is very cute.

Yes, it really galls me too, seeing all that money being wasted on scientists, highly educated and disciplined technicians doing stupid things like research and pioneering space travel. That money is much better spent providing free medical care to smokers, obese people, and 89 yr olds whose lives we may be able to extend by a year or two if we just spend an extra half-million bucks or so.

"The Space Shuttle fired off again this morning. More money being wasted."

500 hundred million dollars to be exact- every single time. Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs we are.

Not the Super Bowl. It's the "Big Game". Better watch that stuff.

Every person who voted for the bailouts should be voted out of office. All of them. Our representatives sold us down the river. Looks to me like our elected officials are bought and paid for by the financial sector. How many billions have the banksters contributed to Congress and the President? Our representatives need to stand up for us, not special interests.

PS "That means, the news tells me, 230,000 people stay home. Wow."

Absolutely insane.

Global Warming conference cancelled in Washington due to heavy snow (around 24 inches). They have more headed their way in a couple of days and temperatures are not going to be high enough to melt what is already on the ground.

From your "Spin"

"One of these days, we'll stop putting people in cages for what they decide to put in their bodies."

I thought you were going to stop doing the Spin. With assanine comments like that one, you really should! There's a LOT more to the Malones' arrests other than drugs. They've stolen all kinds of people's property from all around the area. I don't feel ONE BIT sorry for them. They sure are pitiful, now that they've been caught! Strange how people decide how sorry they are and how they will change their life......once they've been caught and face years in jail. They're sorry excuses for citizens.....only place they need to be is in jail!

What did JFK say about space travel? I guess he and Obama did not come out of the same mold.

Someone should test the SWAT/Cop/Soldier for steroids.

All the Malone article in the mess showed was that they were total and complete trash, not worthy of being allowed to breed. We're better off rid of that kind of scum.

Leno has no damage to control. Since Conan totally wrecked the ratings, NBC had to put Jay back where he succeeded, the late night spot. As for the commercial during the SB, heard today it was Letterman's idea, and the other two jumped on it. You just can't beat Leno, Oprah, and Letterman...they're simply the best at what they do. Conan obviously screwed up his big chance and it didn't take him long, either.

Heard last night Palin now admits she may run for Prez...she's got my vote so far.

Sarah Palin uses a cheat sheet? Obama uses cheat telepromptors?

"Sarah Palin had a cheat sheet written on he palm..."
Or an Obamaprompter...what's the difference?

What do you mean it's not fair? Just because Bush pushed the bailout doesn't mean it was right! The only reason he did it was so GM wouldn't go bankrupt on his watch.

Ask her why she didn't vote to withhold money to ACORN during the investigation.

Ask her why she's running for Governor. Her Senate seat is in jeopardy due to her voting record and the Texas Governor's race is her testing ground.

I'm voting Debra Medina. To hell with those other 2 political hacks!

Have a nice day...

Debra Medina is going to get Rick Perry re elected.

9:45, The difference is that she wrote it herself and someone else writes it for Obammy.

9:45 Now that was funny. You were joking right? If not please go join the protesters in front of the court house.

8:36- You put it very nicely...

There's no telling how many technological advances will come from space. We don't even know about most of what goes on up there because it's top secret. Which I guess only gives more ammo to those who never trust our government.

It is easy to bash space research, especially when some of the decisions of the past have been precipitated by politics, not science. Applied science research is what prepares us for the unknown. Sometimes we know the path in advance, sometimes a pleasant new heretofore unknown truth is discovered unexpectedly. Society must quest for new knowledge if it is to survive the challenges of tomorrow.

Sorry, but I thought a note of serious reflection might balance the discussion. Or not.

You are looking to a guy with a 30% approval rating for confirmation?

In some ways, Bush was more progressive than a lot of Dems. This during a time when the country needed a more conservative direction. Now we are Obama off the chains.

Let the weak fail. What is left will be much stronger. That is one of the great values of a capitalist economic system.

Supporting weak businesses is one of the great failures of a socialist economic system.

If Obama had of been in charge back in 1492 we would have never heard of Columbus.

Isn't Palin supporting the Perry Campaign? Can't wait to see the crib notes from that one. The Tea Baggers deserve her.

She's a local cougar...but the swing is a bit plush (best to stay away from tire/rubber burns).

Oh MAN!!!!! She's got a TIRE SWING!

Anonymous said...

Call her a cougar or whatever but she's hot!

Anonymous said...

Palin being hot or not is not the problem. It's her lack of basic education and thinking skills. BTW - Obama uses a teleprompter for speeches. He's extemporaneous when being interviewed. Palin need notes to remind her what she thinks even in friendly interviews. I certainly hope there are some thinking Republicans available. Unfortunately, none are running for Texas governor.

Anonymous said...

3:46, Are you saying she should use notes when giving unfriendly interviews? (Which would be anytime she is not being interviewed by Fox News)

8.5 on the schwing meter.

Obammy doesn't have a problem when he's speaking extemporaneously because he's so full of BS that it just flows from his silver tongue. Doesn't matter whether it's truth or lies...just sounds good.

TheMessenger has stooped to new lows interviewing trash like this.I first thought I could smell wild flowers when I started reading the article then realized it was fumes from the meth cooker.Talk about finding GOD in a jailhouse.I wish they had of been born two hundred years earlier.They hanged shit like that then and burned the house.As we always say(bless their mothers heart).DAGO

Anonymous said...

So let me get this straight Palin writes three lines on her hand to remind her to mention a few things in her speech and that makes her dumb. Obama reads everything he says off a teleprompter and that makes him smart?

Liberals think that taking money away from the people who sign their paychecks will make them prosperous....they have no place judging the intellect of others.
