Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • I go outside for a second yesterday and then back in only to find both kids banished to their rooms for the night. Something about a fight over a water bottle that turned into a BIG deal. I'm glad I was outside. 
  • And then this morning everyone wakes up as happy as can be. Nighttime must be magic.
  • College girls wear those shoes to football games? (At Alabama last weekend.)
  • Story in yesterday's Star-Telegram said three police officers with Sansom Park had been fired and the police chief, Tony White, has been placed on leave with pay. I wonder if that's the same Tony White that used to be chief of police in Rhome?
  • More gold in the commercial where the little giraffe kisses the nutty guy: In the beginning, their are live dogs playing poker in the background.
  • Rick Perry has a new "border control" campaign ad. (You know, how he glares at the border menacingly as some border agent points out something in the distance.)  The only time that guy thinks about the border is at campaign time.
  • Watching a little kid sound like an adult as she chastised a little puppy is pretty cute. 
  • What closed Blue Mound Road in far northern Tarrant County last night?
  • I've got Sirius satellite radio for a three month free trial. Not bad. But I stumbled across Howard Stern this morning --- sheer radio anthrax. 
  • Horrific video yesterday of a Ukrainian lion tamer being mauled in what sounds to be a bunch of children.  Of course, poking the unrestrained animal with a stick beforehand probably didn't help matters.
  • The Tea Party candidate who once said she dabbled in witchcraft on Bill Maher's show now has a new campaign ad that starts off, "I'm not a witch." That has to be a first.
  • Wow, all those people with offices out in center field will for the first time have to purchase tickets to watch the game from their balconies. The Rangers blame Major League Baseball for the edict. Riiiighhhttt.
  • The Mayor of Arlington was on WBAP this morning talking seriously about where the parade route would be if the Rangers won the World Series (and not once did he hesitate because of potential bad karma.) Does he not remember when Laura Miller of Dallas was roasted for doing the same thing when the Mavericks were in the finals against the Heat?

Blue Mound Road is still blocked this morning. I live in that area and that is the intersection that I turn at. The police still had it blocked this morning.

Oh well, it happens!

Rick Perry thinks about doing something at the border like Bill White did something for Houston during the huricanes.

Both just let the riff-raff in and walk away.

Perry leads White 50-36 in latest poll. Proof of the educational system in Texas!

I don't know White or the libertarian but one of them is going to get my vote.....and I am a Republican.

Yes its the same Tony White and one of the other cops that got fired followed him from Rhome to Sampson Park and he is from Boyd

The Sansom Park Chief is the same Tony White that used to be in Rhome.

At least Rick Perry understands he needs to campaign on being tough on borders issues unlike Obama who punishes states that are tough on enforcing our laws! Would Bill White go against Obama and other liberals on illegal immigration? My vote will go to Rick Perry because I think Bill White will not cross liberal Democrats on border issues.

That's a pretty good commercial by O'Donnell. Now her Democrat opponent has to come out with two commercials -- "I'm not a marxist" and "I'm not Harry Reid's pet."

What's the big deal about the footwear at a football game? They're not gonna get picked to come down and participate like it's a Springsteen video or something.
Or are you pointing out that the shoes in question are somehow appropriate for others, but not for college students?
Nice drumsticks on the left BTW

The flap about MLB (as opposed to Rangers) forcing office dwellers to pay extra for playoff tickets is plausible. This sounds like something Selig would do. Greenberg/Ryan group has gone overboard proving themselves to be fan-friendly.

The "I'm not a witch." ad is a first because HR Clinton and Pelosi have never denied their witchy powers

Those shoes are fabulous and very comfortable. You should get you a pair Barry.

Rick Perry all the way. It's an obvious decision. That Bill White character is a joke and why doesn't he want to show his tax returns? Is he hiding something? Mmmmmmm.....

College girls-I don't understand why they have to dress like hoes(?) for a football game. It's a freakin' football game not Harry Hines at night! I watched one trip downstairs in her stilettos and clingy dress stuck to her dimply butt. Pretty freakin' funny! I guess the guys like it though, but don't tell those girls, they'll turn you in for sexual harassment!

Bill White's tax returns from 20 years ago are irrelevant. Perry used those as an excuse not to show up for debates where he knew the other candidates had more than a head of hair on their shoulders and would undoubtedly show him up. And it seems to me this morning that Perry and his cronies have already robbed us all blind by funneling technology monies into his contributors' and hunting buddies' pockets. I wouldn't vote for Rick Perry if he paid me the money he's paying his buddies, and it will be the first time in my life I didn't vote for a Republican governor. Bill White may be a democrat, but he's a better man than Governor Goodhair.

Poking lions with a stick and antagonizing them is not "taming"... wouldn't you be fed up after continuously being treated that way?

Bill White is a lying politician...just like the rest of them. His ad about homeowners insurance premiums is deceptive. He says he will force all companies making a profit on home insurance in Texas to take a rate cut. There has not been a company make a profit on homeowners insurance in Texas in over 15 years. Just a sound bite that sounds good...but he knows the truth.

Bill White was nowhere to be found during the hurricanes. Just like he will be if he is Gov.

Rick Perry sux, but he is the lesser of the 2 evils.

I agree with White being just another politician, but your statement....

"There has not been a company make a profit on homeowners insurance in Texas in over 15 years."

....is just wrong. Who do you work for, Farmers or State Farm?

Take another bong hit, bro.

9:46 there's a difference between stilettos and wedge sandals.

Somebody needs a lesson in fashion. LOL

Anonymous said...

House of York 10:31 - 9:46 didn't say anything about the shoes the girls were wearing at the Alabama game being stilettos. Looks like you need a lesson in reading comprehension. You're really not very smart so you need to give up trying to correct other people.

11:06, "I watched one trip downstairs in her stilettos.." from HOY post. Who needs reading comprehension? Doof.

Rick Perry IS a coward for refusing to debate anyone under the flimsy claim of not getting to see White's old tax records.

MAN UP RICK.

This conservative has not a candidate to vote for in the Gov election. Not one.

So did you replace your truckster? I got Sirius radio when I got my new vehicle and I sure like it.

House of York said...

Mmmm....maybe this part threw me off.

"College girls-I don't understand why they have to dress like hoes(?) for a football game. It's a freakin' football game not Harry Hines at night!"

Guess I thought 9:46 was "COMPARING" the two girls in the pic with hoes.

wordkyle said...

From a strategic viewpoint, Perry's got a fairly hefty lead in the polls, so why elevate White to symbolic equality by sharing the stage with him in a public debate? As interested observers, Texas voters want to see it, but I'm not sure it would be good politickin'. Why mess with the status quo when you're winning?

Anonymous said...

I could see where the sandals Barry posted would remind 9:46 of hoes wearing stilletos, though, because those college girls in the short skirts and waaaaay too tall sandals look like hoes to my middle-aged eyes! Anyone who would wear sandals that high to walk at a ball game are begging for a twisted ankle or a pick-up, whichever comes first.

ANYONE but Perry! Every time I look at him I see Robert Tilton.

Thank you 11:06 & 1:35 for understanding!

For everyone else, here is a clarification: I did not attend the Alabama game where these "fine, upstanding, I'll dress as trashy as I want to but don't look at me unless you are hot or I will have you arrested for sexual harassment" girls (I'll call them this instead since I didn't look up how pluralize ho for all the English majors out there who have nothing better to do than peruse this blog for spelling errors and didn't even notice that I put a question mark in parenthesis to show that I wasn't sure of the spelling). Seeing said girls in their really short dresses and tall shoes REMINDED me of one time when I was attending a college football game in Fort Worth where I saw a similar girl trying to walk up the stairs in her 4 inch tall high heeled shoes holding on to her extremely short & thin dress that left nothing to the imagination because she was clearly wearing a thong and her dress was up her butt-crack and her cottage cheese cheeks clearly showing through. After a while she proceeded to walk down the stairs, she tripped up on her tall shoes and fell down the stairs on her knees while her friend did nothing. I did what any sensible person dressed appropriately for a football game would do. I laughed out loud! Oh and did I mention she was slightly inebriated? Moral of the story: quit dressing like a ho-bag for a football game!!

There I hope that cleared up all the confusion between stilettos and tall wedges. :p

I was all set to vote for White simply because he is NOT Perry, then I saw on the Internet that Steve Mostyn donated $3,500,000 to his campaign (is that true?) and became concerned about how White would repay the favor.

Does White not know that the money insurance companies pay to settle unfounded lawsuits, just to make them go away, is included in the rate making process?

Mostyn has filed more than 3,000 suits against the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association for claim arising out of Hurricane Ike. Plus countless more against other insurers.

If he can afford to give away $3.5 million, how much has he collected?

The MLB charging for tickets IS true. The Rangers are not the ones forcing this issue.

Other dumbass things MLB does: Scheduling the Ranger playoff game to be played Wed & Thurs while we are all at work. I guess ratings just don't mean anything to MLB.

2:34 I agree. Wearing any sort of heel and being drunk is never a good thing. Heck...wearing flats and being drunk isn't good either.
