Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • I guess the announcement that Arnold Schwarzenegger's fathered a child with a member of his household staff had a little something to do with the demise of his 25 year old marriage.
  • Jerry Lewis will end his run of the Muscular Dystrophy telethon this fall after 45 years. I applaud him for his efforts over the years but exactly how much money was raised without finding a cure?
  • With the debate that broke out yesterday regarding fault of the death of the Alvord girls between Decatur and Denton last year, I missed that Channel 8 News did a short story on the dangers of 380 after the death of a Texas Tech student at around the same time.
  • Fiona's out and about again. (Facebook link.)
  • I think this is a newly created 10 minute video starring local Decatur folks on the "Every 15 Minutes" anti-DWI campaign. Over produced?
  • At 7:14 this morning, based upon my quick fingers, I discovered the following stations were running commercials simultaneously: The Ticket, WBAP, KLIF, KRLD, The Fan and ESPN Radio.  That model cannot last. 
  • Royal Wedding photo funny.
  • Donald Trump announces he won't run for President. Told you it was all a bit. I can't stand that guy.
  • Mike Huckabee announces he won't run for President: I take it back, he's smarter than I thought he was. 
  • Does anybody want to run against President Obama?
  • Nothing like heating something up for breakfast in the microwave and then dropping it at your feet. Hello, Tuesday morning.
  • Does the teacher from Kennedale in the latest sex scandal look like former Journey lead man Steve Perry in her book in photo? (Ticket reference this morning)
  • WBAP's Hal Jay this morning right before a report on the Mavericks at 8:12 a.m.: "Have they been this far before?" For the life of me, I have no idea how he has a job.
  • Three sports items: (1) Rain Delay Baseball Bat Jousting - pretty funny, (2) A relief pitcher last night went 2 and 1/3 innings and gives up 14 earned runs to set a record, and (3) a punch in a rugby game which has the greatest slow motion since Rocky.
  • The IMF sexual assault case is bizarre: He is in town for "personal business", rents the penthouse at Sofitel Hotel for over $3,000 per night, allegedly assaults a maid (a maid!), and now sits in jail on Rikers Island. Now that's what I call a weekend. (And are those holes in his shoes in the photo below?)

Dangers of 380? There are many, many roads and highways that require attentive driving to avoid tragedies. If it's the road, then why do 99.9999 percent of vehicles NOT wreck?

I see the Decatur Board plans to approve major renovations to the track and stadium. It is about time these projectsvmoved forward.

The Republican candidate who has a decent campaign organization, who will consistently articulate Conservative principles, and who won't waffle, moderate or triangulate, can energize voters and will have a very decent chance of beating Obama, who is Carter redux. We just don't know who fits that profile -- but it's early yet.

Wow the every 15 minute video made me cry. It is way better than I thought it would be. Good job decatur

The link for the Fiona picture does not work, but I am sure that it is the same cardboard cutout that we have seen before. At least, unless someone purchased a new one.

As apart of the team who volunteered to make that video, overproduced is better than nothing! BTW: I blogged about making it here: http://accordingtowhim.blogspot.com/2011/05/every-15-minutes-shooting.html

Barry-Why would you say that the "Every 15 Minutes" video is over produced? I just wathced it for the first time and it has such a positive message and actually brought tears to my eyes. I thought that everyone in it did an amazing job and whoever filmed/produced it needs a pat on the back. Good job everyone!!!

Best random thoughts girl ever. A dude could really get some traction with those hips.

I can't wait for Gingrich to explain why he, as a member of the moral majority, left his cancer-fighting wife for a woman with whom he had an affair. Makes about as much sense as Sarah Palin's kids preaching abstinence.

Paul Ryan would be the only person that would fit WK's description. By Republican standards: Romney is too Mormon, Ron Paul is seen as too crazy, and Newt has had too many marriages. As for Obama, it's the economy, stupid. If the UR is below 8% and GDP is growing, he will claim credit and probably get it. If those numbers are off, he'll try to blame someone else and it won't work.

One would hope wouldn't they? But, after generations upon generations of wasting money on Don't Drink and Drive Messages the point still doesn't come across. PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DO WHAT THEY WANT WHEN THEY WANT no matter what.

No president has been re-elected since FDR with an unemployment rate over 6%. Things are looking up for the Republicans. I am still waiting for John Edwards to explain why he cheated on his cancer fighting wife and fathered a child while running for President.

What is wrong with this world is people have no morals, no conscience, no work ethic, do what ever they want regardless of who it hurts and are not held accountable for their wrong doings most of the time. The rich get richer the poor get poorer. And to many people think they are entitled to things without working for it. Bring on the end personally I have had enough of this world.

"I am still waiting for John Edwards to explain why he cheated on his cancer fighting wife and fathered a child while running for President."

So are the Democrats. But do you think that justifies Gingrich doing it? That's where morality lies--a moral person will call it like he sees it. You, on the other hand, responded with "someone else did it too," apparently in an attempt to justify the behavior of your candidate.

So, that's another example of an immoral Republican. Thanks for making my point.

Hmmm...more of the disinformation about Gingrich that his daughter has recently refuted.

Anonymous said...

Rage, That's not pointing out immorality, it's pointing out how hypocritical you are. Glad I could be of help.

Anonymous said...

Rage, I think they were pointing out the fact that there is a lack of morals on both sides of the political aisle.

You make it sound like it is a worse moral offense because Gingrich is Repub. Just because liberals don't identify as the "moral majority" does not mean they should get a pass for their indiscretions. Many try and play that double standard but only the weakest minds fall victim.

By twisting a comment to try and show an immoral act you clearly show you have little moral compass yourself! It appears you are in over your head on this one!

I don't know from personal experience, but I bet the maids in the $3000 per night hotel are of a slightly higher caliber than the ones at the $40 per night Motel6. Check with Kobe and get back to me.
Besides, maybe he's a hopeless romantic who just finished watching Maid in Manhattan, and imagined himself giving JLo a good rogering

The Kennedale teacher in the alleged sex scandal does resemble Steve Perry a bit - except for the mustache. She should get a depilatory for that

The Every 15 minute video was very good! Hopefully it will make an impression on some students! Unfortunately, young people think they are indestructible and that this would never happen to them! Of course there are those parents that supply alcohol to their children and their friends because they think that is a "cool" thing to do...so very sad!!

Y'all don't get it. It is definitely worse for a sanctimonious judgmental ass who claims to be moral to be doing exactly what he condemns others for.

More examples of why Republicans have no morals. What would Jesus do?

Obama will be president until January of 2017 so you folks need to get over it. There are no viable candidates on the GOP side.
Gingrich has too many divorces despite what the apologist wordkyle says. Romney is too Mormon and he has his universal health care plan. All others are minor players. The only one that is creditable is Huntsman and he is smart enough to wait until 2016.
No serious candidate wants to be the one that loses to Obama.

To the lady in the video saying that the speed limit is 60 but nobody goes 60 they go 80, I say, if you pass a truck going 80 you deserve to land in a ditch; but, the teens you crash into don't.

10:39, I've got you pegged. Your kid wasn't the gifted genius you hoped she/he would be. So, you put her/him in FFA where she/he shined (or not). And because FFA doesn't have the prestige of national honor society, debate, mock trial, or such, you suck on sour grapes. Melinda Reeves has nothing to do with your FFA problem.

after watching the every 15 minutes video i just want to say that

1. why would some drink at renshaw park if they're not playing in a softball tourney?

and

2. johnny cash turned over in his grave because his song was used in a dumb video.

Anonymous said...

You are charitable to a fault. Describing that video as over-produced is the understatement of the 21st century. How about "Corny"? "Stupid"? "Ineffective"? "Unbelievable"? Shall I go on?

When did the entire planet degrade to the point where we believe that making a glossy video, regardless of how well-intentioned, is ever going to effectively replace good parenting?

You bunch of dumbasses that think this is a good idea continue to look behind the wrong tree for the boogey-man.

Sad, just sad. Even a little embarrassing

"Every time a make a really intelligent observation I am refuted by many of you simply because I am a homosexual. Sometimes I just want to cry and drink some hand lotion"

I had no idea you were homosexual but I can assure you it would not affect how I view your comments or opinions. I haven't walked in your shoes, so while I disagree with your "observations" (I think the jury is out on the intelligent part) I certainly respect your right to have them.

You need to revise your comment to say that all politicians are sanctimonious judgmental asses. No one party has cornered the market on morality, the libs like to peg cons that way so they can use it against them when they inevitably slip up and stick their wobbly bits where they don't belong!
