Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • The Trophy Club overly-excited city council meeting (something to do with the mere suggestion of disbanding the police force) did not exactly look like the melting pot of society.
  • That Badu chick that got naked at the site of the Kennedy assassination agreed to the maximum fine of $500 and six months probation on her Disorderly Conduct charge? Why in the world would you do that? Publicity opportunity fail.
  • Edit: Link fixed. The crowd at the NY v. NY football game last night reminded me why I wouldn't want to live in NY.
  • "2 boys found dead in car in SC river; mom charged." Anybody else having a Susan Smith flashback?
  • Whatever happened to gypsies? 
  • Heard on radio: Is the term "I'm going to start cracking the whip" (to motivate others) a reference to slavery? Is that also the origin of the term "Cracker?"
  • Is there anyone who caters to the masses more than Texas Sen. John Cornyn?
  • Got home from work and saw a broken beer bottle in the street in front of my home. Couldn't stand it: I swept it up while still in a long sleeved shirt and tie. 
  • I here the example some times of a guy who went to bathroom in public and ended up having to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. I've never seen a case even remotely close to that factual scenario. 
  • Denise Richards still has it
  • Might be a little slow here today -- a DWI trial is calling. 
  • Saw on the news that Pakistan is 20% under water due to flooding? Great. The most unstable place in the world becomes more unstable. Anybody watching the nukes?
  • Edit @ 12:21 pm: Yep that trial is going to occupy my time today.

"The Trophy Club overly-excited city council meeting (something to do with the mere suggestion of disbanding the police force) did not exactly look like the melting pot of society."

Way to go accusing Trophy Club of being racist without coming right out and saying it. My in-laws used to live there and one friend of ours is a current council member in Trophy Club.

That is a typical Liberal thing. If there aren't hispanics, african-americans, etc. spread all around, then the area must definitely be racist.

Your link to the crowd in NY goes to "sumpin" else!

With Denise Richards, you have to find that point where the hot axis and crazy axis intersect on the worth-it graph and make your decisions. Numbers don't lie.. but you can be misled.

By "catering" do you mean representing the people who elected him?

as to the word cracker, it came about in the late 60's refering to white skin color being like a soda cracker..and the word honkey is derived from honkey-tonk in which only white folks went, black folks went to juke joints...there you have it.

Did anybody notice the string of trash on the mowed Hwy 380? What a freakin mess! All litterbugs should cruise down 380 this week! What a shame!

Glad you asked, Barry. Yes, Barak Obama caters to the group he is with. He obviously double talks about the mosque situation and every other situation. We have now proven that we can survive without a leader in this country.

From the Why-is-that, Barry? folder:
When you show a meeting/assembly involving predominantly (or all) white folks, you ask why there aren't a few people of color there, but you never pose the opposite question when the crowd is a different color/ethnicity. Why is that, Barry?

Your NY football link has nothing to do with NY or football

I might have to do some reference work, but wasn't the whip invented long before the problem of American slavery - or slavery in general? And during said whip's infancy, don't you think it may have been cracked a time or two to motivate the crackee? I'm not denying that the action or the phrase involved didn't happen in American history, but how do you co-opt a phrase, use part of it as an insult, then claim the phrase is an ethnic slur, just because your culture was the last to be victimized by it?
Couldn't the constant use of the term "cracker" prompt somebody to file a class-action lawsuit? I'm starting to feel a little bit of a guilt complex for something I didn't even do.

The masses are the people who elected Cornyn to his position. Shouldn't he cater to those people?

I think Denise Richards still has it the same way Jenny McCarthy still has it. But Richards is psycho-scary, while McCarthy is "let's see what happens next fun-time" scary

Aren't Gypsies still around - just called "Travellers" now?
I'm wondering whatever happened to tramps and thieves

I remember when Susan Smith drove her kids into the water, then appeared on national TV when no one knew where the kids were saying, "yo mama looovvves you" in her southern twang. All of the newscasters were feeling so sorry for her and helping her plea to the public for help in finding her kids. I immediately saw her and said, "she's guilty - she killed them". Maybe it was her accent, but there was something immediately that said she was guilty. Kinda like ol Darley spraying silly string on her kids graves in front of the camera.

term cracker while relating to cracking whip is term applied originally to Florida cattle herders

gypsies have become mainstream, just go to Walmart and check out the tats and piercings

Parents in places like Trophy Club, Southlake, etc. always seem to have blinders on, displaying a belief that kid trouble is never home grown...but always imported from "lesser" places. Their little angels couldn't POSSIBLY....etc. etc.

Why do people always insult another group on the comments? Usually it is towards the Democrats, but isn't making fun of them being as intolerant as you claim them to be?

Good lord. If ANYONE thinks the term "I'm going to start cracking the whip" is racist you are nothing but a trouble maker.

The first thing that came to my mind was my moma telling us kids we better straighten up or else.

And, Barry Green your as bad as that African American lady on Real Housewives of DC. That AA lady started accusing a white lady of being racist when the white lady mentioned she didn't care for Tira Banks and that she thought Bush was a better person than Obama. There was absolutely nothing racist about anything the white lady said.

So Barry, you and your ilk need to grow up!

It's official. If the all knowing Skippy the Blog Police can use the offensive term cracker then it's OK to use the word nigger.

Honkey came from the white folks pulling their cars up to the black folks' houses to pick them up to go work in the cotton fields, and honking the horn when they didn't come out of the house.

Anonymous said...

They call it Trophy Club because you have to have a trophy wife in order to live there. Its in the bylaws.

To 9:18. In 1988 in Dallas an old black man told me the term "honkey" came from the rent man. He was the white man that had the rental property that was rented to black folks and was afraid to get out of his car to collect the rent. So he would pull his car in front of the house and honk his horn so the renters could come out and pay him.

Maybe your buddy, Obama, should try "catering to the masses a little more?"

I think 8:31, 9:46, and 9:54 kind of beat me to it: Why the fascination with, and snarky comments about, the racial makeup of a Trophy Club town meeting?

I'm not a TC resident, or even one of its defenders - I live maybe three or four miles closer to there than you do.

But I wonder, would you similarly make such an observation if an organized activity in Oak Cliff, Poly, or Como lacked racial diversity?

Isn't it time that your white guilt became passé?

White Settlement ISD has many gypsie's students. Guess they all moved here?..

Barry,
The term "Gypsy" is no longer used. they are Roma people. They originated from India and were in the lowest caste. Nobody wanted them around so they were forced to keep moving from one place to the next.

They were originally called, "Gypsies" because people thought they were from Egypt. They are not and "Gypsy" is a derogatory slang.

Europe is very prejudice against the Roma people. Several days ago, France sent many Roma people to Romania. See: http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/europe/08/20/france.roma/index.html?iref=allsearch

Most are uneducated and very poor. Back in 1991 I adopted from Romania and my children are part Roma. They are beautiful people.
