Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • I'm not sure how the Egyptian President has remained in office for thirty-something years because he knows nothing about public relations (That is, try anything for one day and then abandon the idea: i.e. kill the Internet, send in goons, say the protesters are instigated by foreign interests, say you'll step down, arrest journalists).
  • But there is a report that he has fled Cairo this morning. And for all this talk about promoting democracy, the U.S. has supported this guy for decades. 
  • Trees will be blooming within 30 days.
  • There's a book coming out later this year on the Mike Leach/Texas Tech divorce called Double T - Double Cross. Hmmm, I wonder which side it will take?
  • The Family Cat made a break for it out the back door so I sent the Family Pup out there to go get her last night. I'll be dang if they weren't wrestling on the back porch in about five minutes. (Yeah, it's fenced.)
  • Blockbuster is putting itself up for sale. I can't imagine anyone who would want to buy it.
  • DallasNews.com's paywall is now flexing its muscles. At one point this morning, of the nine "latest news" stories, seven of them were for paid subscribers only.
  • The NFC has sent 10 different teams to the Super Bowl over the last 10 years. That means Dallas is one of six teams not to make it.
  • The face value of Super Bowl tickets were $800 to $900 and, as greedy as the NFL is, there is no question that is significantly less than the fair market value. 
  • I wouldn't call it depression, but I suffer the emotional blahs every year at this time. It's like clockwork. 
  • A 77 year old woman was robbed of her $22,000 fur coat and $65,000 ring outside of Nordstrom's at the high tone Northpark Mall in Dallas. Is it wrong it those prices taint my perception of the story?
  • I get a little beaten down by someone saying "pitchers and catchers" report in x number of days. Hey, they'll be running around in windbreakers for two weeks. Nothing to get excited about. 
  • This is 1970s humor, but I've found the next president of Egypt.
  • I couldn't find an update on the No-Body-Murder-Trial. It's the defense's turn but there's no reason for them to put on a single witness -- simply argue the State has failed to prove its case. Yeah, there's a chance a crazy Denton jury could convict but there is no way it would hold up on appeal. No. Way. 
  • -28 in Oklahoma yesterday?

Actually, Bubear, it hit -31 and set an all-time record low for the state of Oklahoma. Now that is my kind of weather.

I've also noticed your random thoughts girls have been...extremely...attractive this week. Unfortunately, I can't look at them long or I start melting.

Always enjoyed Mike Leach at TT, even though he was crazeeeee! Tech should have sent the James family packing & kept Leach just for the entertainment value. Kind of like a Bobby Knight of football. Now Lubbock is once again boring.

Yes it is very wrong to allow the value of the coat and jewelry to "taint" your perception. With your logic, she deseved to get robbed. What kind of lawyer are you? Too bad you won't allow this to be published.

* The O.M.G. Bikini Girl is, still, one of the all time best, EVER, Random Thoughts Girl.

* Hosni Mubarak remained in office because he is a dictator. According to the Egyptian Constitution (yep! they have one), it requires a 2/3rds vote from the Parliament for someone to be a candidate to run for President of Egypt. The Parliament's votes are not secret. The whole, Mubarak being a dictator, with control over a brutal "secret police" force, made it a suicidal act to fail to vote for Mubarak. Without term limits and that type of power, Mubarak never thought about public relations.
Source

* FYI, every nation just like most lawyers, have to, from time to time, hold their nose, to facilitate a favourable outcome and cut a deal that is in the best interest of the people/organization/country they represent. The US, befriending Mubarak was in the best interest of the US. Obama, throwing Mubarak under the bus, was more evidence that Obama fails to understand that he is the POT United States and should make decisions that are in the best interest of the United States.

* Late Winter "blahs" could be a sign of Seasonal Affective Disorder/SAD.

* The age of the armed robbery victim is what alters my perception of the armed robber. Why should the value of the items stolen, at gunpoint, alter anyone's perception of the crime?

Iam a female,not a guy, and the girl today looks far better than the usual showing of fake body parts. She is pretty, natural, and quite attractive. Rather see this type if I am forced to look at any bikini clad girls on this site to get to the reading part. At least she doesn't make me want to puke like most of the trashy tramps posted!

Did the Egyptians want Mubarak to fail?

11:39, Obammy wanted him to fail also.

Anybody know anything? Over in Jack County at Bryson ISD, Three 18year old boys bullying a freshman boy? Supposedly happened on the athletic bus on way home from game, the boys wiped their bare arses in his face? Schoolboard shoots down initial punishment and lets senior boys off with 5 days AEP and can still play basketball. 18year olds parents are on school board...hmmmm smells like some home cookin. Surely not! School board to meet again sometime next week.

You may want to read the above d'Raged. It talks about the people wanting democracy in Irag and US support of same.

The funny thing about facts is they keep getting in the way of your arguements.

So what are you going to do this time? Change your arguement or produce facts of your own?

Tell you what, why don't you post some links to references supporting your point of view for all to read and consider.

In Texas, anyone under 18-yrs receiving a piercing must have written consent from a parent/guardian.

It is unlawful for anyone under the age of 18 to receive a tattoo, in Texas, unless for the purpose of covering up an existing tattoo and then a parent/guardian must grant consent.

Lets see, Obama thinks thousands of Egyptians protesting on the square is nation building democracy in action but when the Tea Party gathers it is a bunch of rabble rousers, etc. Isn't that the pot calling the kettle half black.

AMen, Mzchief! The poor little old lady is 77 years old, and I felt so bad for her when I heard that oin the news last night!! I wouldv've felt bad, too, if she had been robbed in South Dallas also, so don't start trash talking me. Stealing those kids of things could've resulted in broken fingers, or worse, being pushed to the ground to get the damn coat. Poor lady!!! :((

and, I will say today's pic is better than most you post on here, BG.

Barry Green is an example of why this country is going down the crap hole. If people earn or inherit money that allows them to wear expensive coats and jewelry, good for them! This Robinhood crap needs to go...it's killing our economy.

It disgusts me that criminals prey on the elderly because our elders are perceived as sitting ducks. Perhaps, that is why I get such a sense of satisfaction when an elder nails the crooks. The British SuperGranny who foiled the jewelry store heist is the BEST.

Don't know why you can't have a perception. Excluding the physical, the value probably had an impact on hers...and the insurance companies. Oh, and didn't we jump to "grand theft"?

CT said...

Mz--I didn't mean you trash talking me, ma'am. I meant all the other folk on here who like to do so..sorry if I implied that!! I agreed with you on the poor lady being robbed, and should've started a new paragraph when I got down to braqss tacks about my opinion about elders being robbed no matter where they live. Apologies..

And, I agree--the British lady was FAB!!!! Kudos to her!!!

was'nt there a similar robbery a year or two ago at the same mall ??
