Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • I couldn't help but watch the Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin lovefest last night on the Fox News Channel. She seemed a little down.  
  • But it also seemed she was seriously hinting at running for president. Please, please, please.
  • And then I got to see the story about the Reagan boys feuding. (One claims Reagan's Alzheimer's began while he was still in office.) One things for sure: The believe in capitalism as both of them ho themselves out to sell their books.
  • I felt like I was jacked up on caffeine all day yesterday -- I tried to jog it out of me in the evening but that didn't even seem to work. 
  • A restaurant on the square in Waxahachie went up in flames this morning three weeks after it was purchased. 
  • The Family Cat likes to knock over a potted plant onto the carpet. This leads to an ugly exchange between the two of us -- me yelling and her ignoring. Cats can't show remorse? None? 
  • The outside of Cowboys Stadium has a huge screen looking thing that I don't think is a screen. What's it for? (Other than to put the Super Bowl logo on it this week.)
  • This isn't for everyone, but last week's This American Life podcast was fascinating: "The Invention of Money."  The second segment dealt with the Federal Reserve (in understandable English) and even had a sound bite from Ron Paul. (Jarhead would have gone crazy with glee.)
  • A Fort Worth man was electrocuted yesterday near Chico.  (He passed away but can you be "electrocuted" and survive? Or does it necessarily mean death.)
  • I had a radio in the bathroom that would shock me as a kid -- and I don't mean a spark on my finger -- I'm talking about a blast that would run up my arm and cause excruciating pain. I remember telling my parents "that radio shocks me sometimes," but I think they thought I was just talking about static electricity. 
  • The Dallas Morning News has a new look today (better), but I haven't run into any "paid only" content as promised.
  • I don't think the Dallas mayor has a chance in the world of winning Kay Bailey's Senate seat. And if I had to bet, I put money on the despicable David Dewhurst (who will be sure to feature campaign commercials showing him on a horse.)
  • Dick Cheney has a heart pump that "leaves [him] without a pulse because it pushes blood continuously instead of mimicking the heart’s own beat." Wow. 
  • This was very political today.

Actually the man was electrocuted Saturday morning. But our cutting edge local paper reported it under the heading of "Breaking News" on Monday.

Reagan's Chief of Staff also named Regan wrote in his memoirs that Nancy fired him principally for his suggestion of envoking the 25 ammendment re onset of the disease.

Also remeber all of stumbling memory losses those last few years in office?

Doubt if he was impaired as his COS thought, but Ron's account is probably accurate.

Disliked his politics, but hard to dislike the man.

I've always thought electrocution meant it resulted in death due to electrical shock. Anything less is just a shock, however, you hear people use the term refering to any even minor shock.
Not surprising Dick has no heart- I thought he proved that long ago. I wonder how his investment in Halliburton is doing what with the war monopolies and all.

Dick Cheney has no pulse or heart beat, because he isn't human. Never has been. He's just pure evil.

If you spray the plant with some Boundary it'll help a great deal to ward off House Cat. When mine take to a plant, I'll spray it and they usually leave it alone for a few weeks at a time. Worth a try.

Electrocute does mean death. The -cute part of the word comes from execute.

RPM said...

You can be shocked and survive. But if you been electrocuted, it's a one way ticket to Toasterville.

electrocution is death by electric shock

Trying to discipline or change a cat's behavior is pointless. There are some minor things you can do, but you might as well just go slam your junk in a car door if you think yelling at a cat registers at all. Best to check your shoes or any hats lying around before you put them on. The phrase "Revenge is a dish best served cold", attributed to the 1841 French novel Mathilde by Marie Joseph Eugène Sue (la vengeance se mange très-bien froide) was probably written with cats in mind

wordkyle said...

I see that the Dick Cheney lovefest continues. "no heart," "evil," "isn't human" -- yep, no hate there.

849 - Why would Ron's account be more accurate than that of President Reagan's four White House doctors? (Okay, here's a link.) Maybe a little of that "disliked his politics" tainting your judgment?

Zombies don't have a pulse, vampires don't have a pulse, Dick Cheney doesn't have a pulse. They say it is due to the heart pump. Should we fall for this??

BG...I search the blog daily for local news, not OMG stuff. I need local scuttlebutt!

wasn't that the motto of the crew that used to throw the switch down at Huntsville?
"It aint pretty, but...we put the 'cute' in electrocute"

RPM said...

"yep, no hate there."

You want love for a guy that told a Senator to go **** himself on the Senate floor, outed a CIA agent, lied at every turn then shot a guy and had the guy apologize for getting shot?

Sorry, can't do it.

Anyone know what's going on at 287/114 in Rhome? There is some major construction going on.

You want local news, so do I? Try and find out what is happening at Young Elementary School and why is it being kept quiet? Anyone know?

Mr. Green -
Put regular table pepper around the base of your pot plants and it will keep the cat out of it. This also works in flower beds, just a dash around the plant.
Hope that helps

I thought there was an age limit on people being eligble for transplants. Guess former VP gets VIP treatment.

"Guess former VP gets VIP treatment."

He has government healthcare.

Barry, you are fixated on Sarah Palin. I know she is interesting because she has the fortitude to say what should be said. You probably need to move on to a Barney Frank who has a perspective similar to yours.

It's not hate speech when the libs say it ... it's just politics. Only Repubs can do hate speech. Get with the program. What's wrong with telling a senator to ef himself? They do it to us regularly.

WK - The civility tone as requested by their dear leader, Captain Kick Ass, never transpired. The liberals only want the conservatives to be civil now that they lost the House. Civility wasn't in their vocabulary before that.

I only read this blog to read your comments. The liberals don't hold a candle to you. Keep up the good work!

Sprinkle pepper in the potted plant, that works.

* Regardless of whether or not President Reagan had early onset Alzheimer's, while POTUS, Ron Jr. is a colossal douche bag for gossiping about private family matters. What makes people think that it is EVER appropriate to talk trash about people, especially, when the gossip they are spewing was acquired because of their private relationship with their victim?

* Ground black pepper or cayenne pepper sprinkled on the top of the plant's soil will keep cats away from the soil. It works wonders in flowerbeds.

* Did it cross anyone else's mind that Barry's parents knew EXACTLY what Barry was talking about when he mentioned the radio shocking him?...*;)

* Really! Really? People are just now finding out that Cheney does not have a heartbeat? Sorry, that was just tooooo easy. I actually like VP Cheney and the fact he is very much about not being a BS politician and told it like he saw it regardless of who he pissed off and still does.

Cheney and Palin are to Loony Leftist Liberals what Aglaopheme and Thelxiepeia were to Odysseus which assures twice the entertainment factor for non-partisans.

I'd bet Dick Cheney can:

A. Beat up B.O.

B. Throw a baseball better than B.O. (in other words, like a man)

C. Bowl better than B.O.

D. Serve two terms. Unlike B.O.

E. Still outsmart Joe Biden.

F. Shoot straighter than B.O.

G. Lead a nation better than B.O.

H. Speak without a teleprompter.

I. Pronounce the word corps correctly.

Yep,,,no hate here today.

Has a problem with neighborhood dogs crapping in my yard. Went to Dollar store and bought all the pepper they had, red, black and whatever else they had, worked like magic

8:51- Your comment is a perfect example of the difference between liberals and conservatives. Liberals think conservatives are evil. Conservatives think liberals are misguided. It is impossible to have meaninful discourse when one side believes their adversary is guided by the devil.

According to the NIH website:

"Although there's no widely accepted upper age limit for a heart transplant, most transplant surgery is done on patients younger than 70 years old. "

There have been successful heart transplants in people as old as 79.

mzchief - Okay, you got me, I had to look it up. I never knew the sirens had names.

mzchief said...

House of York...
I am not surprised someone like you would find my comment, humourous.

mzchief said...

To wordkyle...
The only reason I knew was because, several decades ago, I had a test over Homer's Odyssey and knowing the names of the Siren's was extra credit.
