Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Edit: Oops. I was informed I already posted this one. Let's try again:
  • If you had the television on at around 6:30 this morning, you saw a spectacular fire on Lower Greenville which destroyed Terrilli's and three other restaurants.
  • I had a crazy date at Terrilli's in the 1990s. Not sure whatever happened to her.
  • Someone commented that arson cases are often rejected by prosecutors because they "don't understand" the science behind arson investigations. Puhleeze.
  • Gov. Perry grants a posthumous pardon to Tim Cole yesterday. Wasn't that one day before the election? Truly profiting off a dead man.
  • My prediction: Perry gets 45% of the vote tonight.
  • The Messenger is hosting an "Election Night Watching Party" tonight at the Decatur's Visitor's Center. Note to Decatur Police: Be on standby!
  • There's a best selling book called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? And there's a book soon to be movie called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (with Natalie Portman starring and producing?) Are we out of ideas? I read that in Time yesterday.
  • Off the top of my head, I don't know the difference between Armageddon and the Apocalypse.
  • The Evil Empire went from #1 in the nation to falling out of the AP Top 25 yesterday.
  • I can't tell you enough how quickly my shoulder healed.
  • Sean Hannity was implying yesterday that President Obama drinks too much. It's incredible what Fox News has become.
  • The couple we stayed with in Costa Rica has decided to move their permanently. They don't have any kids and just decided to take a leap of faith.
  • I heard their was a DWI-Felony trial starting today in Decatur. I'll check it out.
  • Based upon some anonymous comments, someone I know is off her medication.
  • The Jack County Courthouse shuts down on election day. Wise County does not.
  • Slate magazine has a "Spoiler" podcast that reveals and discusses the end of movies. I just listened to one for Shutter Island. Oh, my.
  • When you know your life is wheel's off: "Man admits to mistress that he killed topless dancer." There's a lot going on in that sentence.
  • Have ballots ever designated the incumbent? I don't think so.

Good God, man, if you're gonna recycle random pix that quickly, at least make them of somebody really banjo-worthy...like yesterday's gal. Not these three boozy hausfraus

Obama had to drink too much on his wedding day. Have you seen that beast he married?

there not their.

i do that that all the time when i'm typing/thinking too fast

Hannity was just reporting what is in Obama's medical records and all over the internet. Drudge reported it first. I wonder if he only drinks when he is off duty.

If you've got a wife and kids, plus a girlfriend on the side, AND you go out trolling for topless dancers which you "accidentally" murder, then yeah, take your foot off the gas pedal and slowly turn the wheel into the skid that has become your lifestyle

I was in a nuclear unit in Europe during the cold war. We assumed the president was never intoxicated.

I haven't read any of them , but if you noticed from the "other stuff people liked" section, the historical/horror/sci-fi mash-up is quite popular (Android Karenina?). If done right, the one you cited sounds like it might be worth checking into

Sure he still drinks! But big deal.....I have a problem with his smoking in federal buildings where it is outlawed, right? Come on, America, wake up and do something about this guy!!!!!

8:41, yeah, and going forward might we also add to life's playbook that it's not a very good idea to strip naked and pretend you want to go to bed with thousands of guys who show up at clubs; instead just taking their money and leaving them to scheme how they might finally have you.

Speaking of voting, I voted this morning at 8:00 am and walked in and voted, it was me and the three voting folks, this was at Decatur City Hall...could it be apathy ??

Yes we have noticed...Fox News has become the most reliable source for news...that is exactly why Barry and others notice what is being reported. We are thinking that any president that would have a "beer summit" caused by some of the ridiculous things that fly out of his mouth...just might be a user of alcohol.

okay, there isn't a booth set up on career day for that one, but if we're being judgmental, why not just say that everybody on those stupid "reality" shows on TV also made bad choices. Whoring yourself out for your 15 minutes of fame isn't much different than what that gal was doing. She was probably less delusional

wordkyle said...

I don't know exactly what Hannity said, so I won't bother defending him. However, news reports make a point of saying that doctors urged Obama to "practice moderation of alcohol intake."

Incidentally, this morning I heard a radio host say "Obama is the fittest President we've ever had." Obama the Smoker has even been on the cover of Men's Health -- twice. However, George W. Bush had a lower bodyfat percent, lower resting heartrate, and lower cholesterol. But you didn't hear the media declare him a "hunk" as they've done for Obama. Not a big deal, but an indication that Obama worship still lives.

Where do I begin? Not with a spelling Nazi post...

.I'm certain Zombieland is 10 times as entertaining as the Natalie Portman flick.

.The difference between Armageddon and Apocalypse is bad movie vs really good movie.

.FOX News hasn't evolved into anything. They are still Republican manifesto shills.

.Based upon their posts, many of the commenters here need to be on medication.

.Rick Perry granted a pardon to a dead man 15 years after the real killer confessed and 2 years after DNA evidence confirmed it?

What a freakin' liberal!

Armageddon was a movie and Apocalypse was a horse. Seriously, Apocalypse is, in literal translation from the Greek, a revelation or veil lifting and is generally considered to be the event where Satan is defeated by God. Armageddon, on the other hand is a reference to where that event might take place and while some believe it to be a reference to Mount Sinai, others believe it to be Mount Megiddo (no Rush pun intended).

USPS to lose $7 billion this year. Hell yes, let's let them run our healthcare industry too!!!

A few beer joints up in smoke on Greenville Ave. is no great loss. Avi, the barking dog at barkingdogs.org, is on top of the story with a lot of pictures.

If we have another 9/11 what do we do if the president is drunk? What do we do if 7.5 lbs. of highly enriched uranium go off simutaneously in America's ten largest cities? And what do we do if the New Madrid fault does it thing (overdue now) and destroys a large dam on the Mississippi, sending a wall of water toward New Orleans? Do we just sit back and wait for the president to sober up?

How many beers can the President drink before he is not allowed to use his nuke key?

M-M said...

Based on his medical record, Obama's Dr. told him basically to drink less. Well, they don't do that unless they have seen something out of whack on some blood test etc. and then inquire about one's drinking habits or eating habits etc. to determine what might cause the test results to be out of whack. So, he probably saw liver enzymes out of whack, asked about his drinking and recommended he cut back.

hey barry i have a news tip for you look into the pratice by the wise county antique auto club of requiring the food vendors at the swapmeet to be for charities and then on top of paying for the lot rent they ask for 10 to 20 % of the profits

The Mississippi river has no dams, but does have levees.

Maybe the Pres has to put on the beer goggles before he gets his groove on with the Misses...

Barry, the alleged murder story could only happen in Texas. Car salesman, mistress, dead stripper, and haunted house. Great premise for a movie.

Regarding our imbibing President: Has everyone forgotten the numerous political tell-all books that came out after the Nixon presidency? Even before Watergate kicked in, it was alleged that his Happy Hour kicked in around 3pm and lasted until bedtime. Serious drinking problem. At the very end of his office, all agreed tacitly to keep the Big Bang Briefcase away from him, just in case.

* Since people of Black ancestry have a predisposition to hyper-tension, Obama's doctor advising Obama to cut back on the booze could be nothing more than precautionary advice. Hannity making something out of nothing is more evidence that Hannity and his ilk are zealots who are willing to say the most moronic of things to stir the pot. What the zealots on either side of the aisle fail to understand; their vitriol turns off moderates/independents/libertarians and both sides need the votes of moderates/independents/libertarians to win elections.

* With the exception of a handful, I thought all of Barry's buddies frequently fail to take their meds.

12:16, the Mississippi has dams. There is at least one in Missouri that is over 2,300 feet across.

1:57, dear gawd, now that Def Leppard song will be in my head all afternoon!

I think BG could use meds for OCD.

Cracks me up that Hannity is talking about Obama's drinking. Sh*t, can you imagine living in the White House without a daily dose of booze? As conservative as I am, Hannity sorta makes me want a drink after listening to him too long...he gets so wound up! Frenzy = beer. Hell, Tuesday @ 5:11 = beer.

Studies indicate that heavy drinking can increase the risk of liver, head and neck, and esophageal cancers, and even moderate drinking has been shown to increase the risk of breast tumors, according to the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute.
