Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • My car's air conditioning compressor went out. You guy's might want to hang around me since I'm bleeding money right now.
  • Despite spending a fortune on legal fees in defense of it's anti illegal immigrant ordinances, the City of Farmer's Branch city council voted last night to appeal a federal district judge's adverse ruling to the Fifth Circuit. They've lost every step of the way. Dumb, dumb people.
  • Blogger Denny Crane claims to have pictures of a guy "roughed up" during a Wise County arrest.
  • Being in the criminal defense business is weird. I have lots of clients wrap up with the relationship with, "Thanks so much. I hope I never see you again."
  • There was a crazy shooting rampage in public in Wichita Falls last night. Six shot. Two dead (including shooter.) And one report on the radio this morning claimed the guy was yelling, "White power!"
  • Cowboys and Washington open up their season on a Sunday night with McNabb as 'skins new QB. Pretty good stuff.
  • The Evil Empire had another football player arrested for DWI over the weekend.
  • The Supreme Court ruling yesterday throwing out a statute designed to outlaw "fetish videos depicting animal cruelty" wasn't very important. The statute was simply written so poorly that in some circumstances it would have made it a federal crime to possess a deer hunting video in Texas. But it'll make news because we've got the weird combination of "fetish" and "animal cruelty" appearing in the same sentence.

I wouldn't dare even comment on Crane's rag, but I'll do it here.

Why should I care? People like Crane support the police state we're in right now. I'm sure if it was anybody different (perhaps they're related?) he'd be saying "Well, he shouldn't have been doing something wrong!" or "Don't get arrested, you won't have that problem." The cognitive dissonance is deafening.

Welcome to the Democratic Party. Ha!

And Barron, after all the problems you've had with that heap, why would you buy another GM product?

The people of Farmer's Branch are fighting an enemy of epic proportions, but God bless them for their perseverence and willingness to take a stand for what is right. I suppose you and all your liberal buddies have no problem with illegals bleeding this country dry?

Whenever I ask a liberal weenie this question, I always get the deer in the headlights look. Shouldn't the borders be locked down? You have locks on your home's doors don't you?

I commented yesterday, but for some reason my post was omitted, that buying American has led me to have my cars in the shop numerous times over the past years. Since I started buying only Toyotas, my cars have not been in the shop ONCE, except for regular maintenance, and I kept them for several years with NO need for repairs of any kind. Buy foreign, dude.

I'd like to know how many of your ex-girlfriends wrapped up the relationship with "I hope I never see you again."

A friend of mine heard about the shootings in Wichita Falls this morning on the radio but only caught part of the story. I started looking for it on the internet when I got to work, but didn't find anything on msn, Yahoo, Channel 8 or Channel 11. Of course, as soon as I check your blog, there's the story with a link. You've scooped just about everyone on this (or our local and national news didn't think it was important enough to report).

That story was disturbing enough and then I went on to read about a mother in Wichita Falls that attacked her two teenage sons with a knife. Sorry, two knives. The first one broke so she went back for another. Let's all be on the lookout for Crystal McGill...

Before switching to Toyota I drove GM as well as Dodge vehicles, and both were in the shop at least once annually, often more, for something. I switched to Toyota 6 years ago, am on my second one, and will never drive anything else. My previous Toyota had close to 100,000 miles on it and never had one repair of any kind; everything worked like a dream. Plus, McNatt in Denton has a much more professional approach, more accomodating personnel, much nicer lobby (to wait for routine maintenance), more amenities such as a computer room and free refreshments; just makes you feel special. At GM and Dodge, you wait for your car in a little nasty room filled with old magazines and smoke!

8:58AM, I have locks on my door to protect my belongings from Wise County residents. I lived in Irving for 20 years and never had anything stolen. I've lived in Wise County for 10 years, and have had both my garage and car burglarized. All were native born Americans.

10:23, Do you have uninsured motorist insurance? Are your property taxes high because of illegals using hospitals for free health care?

Good job Farmers Branch! Win or lose, they are doing the rigth thing. If the surrounding cities would grow some like FB, they could unite and make a bigger impact.

Maybe the old fart was actin' like he was 20 years old again. Of course, I would have trouble fightin' the cops if I had a black oval thingy covering my face too.

10:23, A word of advice. Move back to Irving.

I have a 2008 GMC that we had to special order. In the first 3 months, I believe it was at James Woods about 5 times fixing stupid cosmetic stuff that the Arlington plant didnt do right the first time. It was poorly made and I've been very disappointed. It drives well and I love its roominess, but it was put together like crap. James Woods has been great fixing things for me, though.

1053 and they will still be great when you have to get out your check book as soon as the warranty runs out, they raped me over and over on service work to the point I will never trade there ever again..!

It's much nicer not to have to keep going in and deal with anyone to fix anything. I'm telling you not only do my Toyotas never need repair, but the trade in on my last one was honest to God 5 times what I used to get for GMs and Dodges! NO LIE

Just don't ever buy a KIA and expect any kind of honorable service from ANY Kia repair shop, however, Denton Huffines is the absolute WORST! They sell warranties, then tell you, "oh that's not covered" when you bring in a repair.

i had a kia and every time it rained kia grass would grow all over it..wtf?

Dude in the WF shooting shouts "White Power"?

Guess it kinda makes sense, if the sheriff there is David Duke...
