Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • George W's publicity tour has perfect timing with the local sports news. He's like Wade Phillips -- a good guy who had no business being in a leadership position.
  • And on the Rush Limbaugh show yesterday, he said he had "just signed" 2,400 books (he had been at a bookstore in Dallas for his first official book signing,)  I looked at the clock and it was shortly after noon. I'd believe there were WMD's before I'd believe that. 
  • Mrs. LL's company's human resource department finally told her to go home and rest her wrists for three days. She's going to see the ortho on Friday.  Ugh. 
  • A person in my office calls her "Trinabelle." Kind of like that.
  • Overheard in the courthouse yesterday: "I was in Walmart and somehow they accused me of trying to steal a tire." 
  • I'm not sure what happened, but based upon the shrieks coming from my living room, Glee might have jumped the shark this week. (Two guys kissing?)
  • College football fans: Man, there is a dog pile to try and derail Auburn's Cam Newton. (It involves allegations of his father shopping him to schools for big bucks.)  That's big news for TCU which is one Auburn team away from a National Championship game birth.
  • Some are saying the mysterious "missile launch" a couple of days ago off the coast of California is just an optical illusion of an airliner's jet stream. But, then again, no one can tell us the exact plane it was -- something which should be easy to do.
  • Abilene Wylie beat the Decatur girls in volleyball last night. It is bizarre how many times Wylie has brought an end to Decatur post-season hopes regardless of the sport. 
  • I was going to dog Justin Northwest for making the football playoffs with a 4-6 records then I saw that two other teams made it with a 2-8 record (Tyler Lee, Lubbock Monterey.) Let's give everybody a trophy!!!
  • On Monday a guy jumped from the High Five, and yesterday a guy hung himself from the Houston Street Viaduct. 
  • GM posted a $3 billion third quarter profit. Maybe that government bailout thing wasn't such a bad idea after all. 
  • The Cowboys could send a strong message by cutting Tight End Martellus Bennett. From the first time you saw him on Hard Knocks refusing to listen to a coach, you knew he had the kind of attitude that winners don't have. 
  • What's a Kei$ha?
  • You think News Corp (Fox News parent) regrets paying $600 million for MySpace?  And if you're Facebook, don't you sell the dang thing right now?  Nothing can become yesterday's news faster than a web site.

your comment on W is my esxact thoughts on Bammy. this guy(bammy) has done more to destroy USA than anyone in history. he has 0 leadership skills.
a terrific speaker and pretty nice guy but he is no leader.

At least W has integrity. History will end up being far kinder to W than Obama in the end.

Goodness, BG. Lay off Bush. Quit taking the low road with Obamy and blaming him for EVERYTHING! He is just a man, and has made and will continue to make mistakes. How about you?

Barry, please,,,,Why didn't you just say No Conservative or Republican has any business being in a leadership position? After all, any Liberal has superior intellect and leadership skills over the rest of us peasants. Yea, we should give everybody a trophy, especially your Messiah, and I know exactly where that trophy needs to be delivered. Silly liberal!!!!

I agree with 8:33. You couldn't fine a poorer leader than Obammy. He has repeatedly proven his inadequacy. And I'm not convinced he's even a "nice guy" either.

Let's look at the GM situation. The government took over GM and gave it $50 billion in taxpayer money. A year later GM is able to make a profit of $2 billion. It has "repaid or plans to repay" taxpayers $9.5 billion. Now the government plans to repay itself the remaining $40 billion by selling stock in GM back to taxpayers.

That was certainly a good idea for GM and for the federal government. Not so much for taxpayers.

The FWS-T says that 2500 people lined up to get Bush's autograph on his new book. More were turned away. All that happened before 11 am. Are you doubtful of the numbers involved or the time it took to do it?
As for being qualified to lead our "team", voters thought so in 2000 and 2004. Perhaps if the other party had better candidates than horse-face war protester Kerry, and eco-Forrest Gump Gore...
"Momma always said an election is like a lockbox of chocolate."

Maybe the comment was actually "...trying to steal attire." Though I doubt anybody accused of theft from the Walmarts uses the word "attire".

An overall record of 4-6 isn't noteworthy. Winning in district - and making the playoffs - is what counts

I don't know about cutting Martellus Bennett, but I bet there will be a shakeup at certain positions on the team. Some players aren't trying very hard because they know there is no hope of making the playoffs. Garrett will put his stamp on the team early by restoring discipline and accountability. I predict better effort (but not necessarily wins) very soon

GM posted a $3 billion third quarter profit. Maybe that government bailout thing wasn't such a bad idea after all.--It is easy to show a profit when you control the accounting rules and you need it to be that way for political reasons!

8:33...Obama was no nice guy, with his direct links to domestic terrorists I think he was an extremely bad guy. A bad guy to begin with and a bad guy now, he was never trying to be a good leader for America because he does not believe in America. He is only trying to lead radicals who wish to destroy us!

It actually WAS a launch of some sort. A NOTAM was put out to clear the airspace.

The smear campaign versus Cam Newton is the worst character assassination attempt since Obama ran for president.

Rumor has it that Florida is leaking these stories about Cam out. And these stories, if you haven't noticed, all rely on unnamed sources.

O Hussein is not that great a speaker. He uses the same phrases no matter what the occassion. Its like that band Nickel Back. Same lyrics, different tune.

Really, Hussein uses the word 'potentially' potentially more than anyone in this country.........potentially.

GM- the new profits are from the sell-off of stocks, prospective future earnings and taxes. Not completely due to auto sales. Also, GM is about to sell off the majority of available stocks to their China offices in China. This means that the new "majority" holdings will be China . Once this takes place, GM will not longer be headquartered in Detroit, but in Shanghai.

I'll bet those people who owned stock in the pre-bankrupt GM or the bond holders that got wiped out don't think it was such a great deal.

Seeing the Bush interviews makes me nostalgic for the good old days.

Few presidents in history have been presented with more complex problems than he, and in my opinion, I think he handled them well, especially considering the legal constraints, bipartisanship and limited resources available.

He's exactly what I think a president should be: intelligent, dignified yet approachable, resolute once a decision is made after careful consideration and humble.

Just becasue a team has a losing record does not mean they do not deserve tho make the playoffs. All that matters is how they palyed when it counted, and that is district play. Some teams play brutal schedules before district and others can play cupcake schedules. All that counts is what they do when district starts. If a team can go 2-8 and still make the playoffs then they did what they had to do when it mattered.

Every time I see that billboard of Bush saying "do you miss me yet?" I am reminded of my pure hatred and disgust with BHO and my yearning for the good old days when we actually had a president we weren't ashamed of.....Bush showed class, BHO shows ignorance.

You should be thankful we had Bush when we did. If Gore, Kerry or Obama were in charge we might well be lining up for Arabic class.

There is a progression of control in the federal government. It started with Reagan and has continued to get bigger and bigger. Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama have continued the string of big government.

Our current president's name should be:

George William Bush-Obama

Nothing has changed.

pausing...between...every...word...is...stupid
But it's nice to see you figured out that you were hitting the comma key.
The original comment made no sense. What does leg tingling and fainting have to do with anything? You're embarrassing the folks who agree with the sentiment behind your comment...so...please...stop

wordkyle said...

RC - The President can't do much of anything (at least Constitutionally) without the blessing of Congress. These politicians view getting re-elected as Job #1. Everything else is secondary.

Think about how difficult it is for a politician to get votes when he's telling his constituents that he's lessening government largesse. It takes an informed, bigger-picture-seeing voter and an ethical, disciplined, courageous statesman. Both of those have been in short supply for a long time.

Just because you don't get it doesn't make it stupid. You dont remember the tingly feelings up the legs and all the goofy fainting going on during Imam Obama's campaign.
BTW, Barry's post concerning leadership was way more embarrasing.

9:16 It's the gay agenda. Cram their gayness down all of our throats. Interesting how something that's like 1% of the population is in practically 100% of TV programming.

Anonymous said...

I totally agree with M-M, but I said something similar the other day. Soon I was accused by Mz and someone else of suppressing gay feelings or something along those lines.

Tired of gays on TV, sex on TV, and Obammy on TV!

So very true Wordkyle. Politicians do view getting re-elected as their main job - to heck with serving the people who keep re-electing them. So who are the real jerks here? Them or us?

If some abnormal behavior is constantly shown on TV as being the norm and if those of us who do not tolerate the gay lifestyle are constantly being shown in this TV programming to be the sick ones, then what do you call that. Try brainwashing. People with liberal views are in total control of most TV networks and they have been pushing their values for the past 60 years. America has two to three generations of brainwashed people.
