Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • I heard that the Mavs were down big late in the fourth quarter so I flipped over to see what was going on. I'm glad I saw it because otherwise it is hard to believe.
  • The headline in the Miami paper reads, "Collapse." It was.
  • And WBAP's sports guy Steve Lamb kept saying this morning that "Dirk made the final two baskets with his injured left hand."  That's true if you count the three pointer he made with his right hand as a score with his left hand.
  • Speaking of Dirk, how about a German "hey, now" model on the beach? Edit: Link fixed.
  • Someone made a comment yesterday that it is impossible to be completely or absolutely apathetic about anything. I thought about that all day and tend to agree. You always have some emotional response, no matter how small, to everything.
  • The Update reports that the popular owner of Decatur Tire Store was in an auto accident in Durant, Oklahoma yesterday and was careflighted to Plano. No details were available so does anyone have any? (I was going to mention that seemed like a long way to transport him, but it's only 77 miles.)
  • It's not an interesting read, but a Houston appellate court reversed a conviction yesterday for Criminally Negligent Homicide of a young girl whose passenger died when she got in a wreck while texting. It was kind of a smack down of a growing trend by prosecutors to make simple accidents a criminal offense. 
  • A name synonymous with assisted suicide has died this morning: Jack Kevorkian. 
  • Over 3,000 federal workers in Texas make more than $150,000 a year. And I bet their benefits, health coverage, and retirement plan is fantastic.
  • Tell me this heat is not a preview of the summer. 
  • We've got a kid in the house this weekend (Mrs. LL's relative) while the normal kid occupants are gone. I'm not sure how that happened. 
  • A metroplex car dealership gave a kid a $35,000 BMW for perfect attendance in school. Reminds me of the line, "Why do we bribe kids to do what they should do anyway?" (And what's his income tax bill going to be?)
  • Unemployment numbers released moments ago: It has edged up to 9.1%.  President Obama probably needs it to get to the high 8% range to be a shoe-in for re-election. That would be enough to show it's headed in the right direction. (It was 9.6% last May.)
  • A black man is thinking about running for the new Congressional seat that will include southern Wise County and Decatur?

What happened to the old days when a person who took a job in the government took a huge paycut and did it simply because they wanted to work in government?

So, the girl was "accidentally" texting and killed someone. Texting while driving is a deliberate act that puts lives in danger. Hitting debris and blowing a tire, a dog bolting onto the road...those are accidents. If someone in a road rage pulled a gun and shot someone's tire, causing a wreck...is that also an "accident"?

King Obamy and his liberal weinners made the headlines again:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Employers in May added the fewest jobs in eight months, and the unemployment rate inched up to 9.1 percent. The weakening job market raised concerns about an economy hampered by gas prices and the Japanese nuclear disaster.

WAKE UP, AMERICA!

Good work on the Friday Random Thought girl.

I'll kick off the blue pencil dogpile. I looked up "careflight" in my AP Stylebook. I don't see it listed as a verb. Go with "airlifted" or "transported by air ambulance." Former Texas News 5 morning show knucklehead Joyce Frederick used "careflight" as a verb, too, but she was an idiot.

Steve Lamb is a nice guy who outkicked his coverage in the spousal unit department but, damn, that guy is a sports cretin.

Did you read where the Manhattan DA's office has sent a subpoena to Goldman Sachs regarding their role in the subprime fiasco? Uh, oh. They're on a fishing expedition a la Tyco. Ask Dennis Kozlowski and Mark Swartz how that worked out for them. Good luck, Lloyd Blankfein, you'll need it.

Why did Sheriff Bart meeting the good citizens of Rock Ridge come to mind when I read your last item?

Keep hope alive!

"The unemployment rate in 2009 was 7.8%, it is now 9.1%. The [national] debt was $10.7 trillion, it's now $14.3 trillion. Gas was $1.80 a gallon, it's now $3.80. Why should the American people continue a Democrat in the White House with that kind of record?"
Sound familiar?

RE RT Girl: Hot, hot, hot!

RE Govt. Employees: Have you libs figured out that those employees have to get paid from the private sector that you so desperately want to crush beneath taxes and regulation? You do realize that it failed miserably in Greece right? It does not work! Bigger govt. equals smaller people.

RE Unemployment Numbers: I would say 9.1 compared to 9.6 is an outstanding downward trend that should def help the Obama administration in the next election. (Please note the sarcasm.) I don't understand how people who are supposedly smart, educated people like BG can be so dumb. How is a high 8 number in unemployment a good thing. Even if that shows a slight downward trend it is nowhere near enough to prove he is doing the right thing. Democratic and Obama administration policies have cause a stagnant economy not a growing one. If I gain 5 lbs or lose 5 lbs does that show a positive trend? No it shows a small average fluctuation in a stagnant weight. Come one BG. Wise up would you.

Oh, and in its first two years the Obama administration increased its fleet of limousines by 73% while now a record number of Americans rely on food stamps. If enough voters recognize this disconnect between Obama and the rest of the country, he'll only have one term to inflict his damage.

I support Kevorkian 100%. He did what we do in kindness to our beloved pets, but we allow our human family members to suffer and live on and on in pain and debilitation. I hope and pray that someday we will embrace Kevorkian's theories and be as humane to humans as we are to our animals.

And who cares what color a man's skin is??? As long as he's competent...that's all that matters. In Obama's case, the MAN isn't competent, no matter the color of his skin. It's not a racial issue at all.

I agree that alot of blacks who had never voted, voted for Obama. But, thousands didn't move to Washington because of him being there. I'm saying that blacks are not going to have a "Grapes of Wrath" movement to Wise County because a black man is voted into office. Go ahead and admit that you are a paranoid and ignoran bigot.

It's ironic that with as many chronic health issues as Kervorkian was dealing with, that he chose to go out without "assistance". To be such a great guy, he sure didn't practice what he preached.

Also, it must be safe to assume that all of the haters using the "N" word on the blog today are Democrats since Williams is a Republican. And therefore that means you are responsible for our current POTUS. "Stupid is as stupid does!"

How do all of you economic experts who say, "the stimulus didn't work" back up that claim? Have you considered the state we could be in today if the various actions were not made? If you think it's bad now, it could have been disastrously worse without the federal government actions. We'll never know how bad it might have been. We may have to wait till after 2012 to look back on the "good old days of 2009-2012".

wordkyle said...

821 - First of all, your premise is nothing but meringue. It is just as easily (if not more easily) argued that if the Obama administration had not inflicted additional trillions of dollars to the deficit, nor singled out "the rich" for punishment, nor tried to use regulatory agencies to punish companies for conducting their normal day to day business, nor made it a point to hand pick winners and losers in private industry, that businesses both large and small might feel more confident about expanding. Nervous business owners, unsure what tomorrow's government caprice will be, don't take risks to build their business.

So playing "what if" cuts both ways. As it is, the only thing we know for sure is that trillions of dollars of debt our grandchildren will have to pay has shown little or no improvement in our current economy, and benefited mainly Obama's chosen recipients and political allies.

Anonymous said...

Obama administration had not inflicted additional trillions of dollars to the deficit

He learned it from watching Bush--the first to push a stimulus, and McCain, who suspended his presidential campaign to make sure "this vital piece of legislation is passed."

nor singled out "the rich" for punishment

Their tax burden is exactly the same as it was under Bush. But don't tell anyone what the facts are....

nor tried to use regulatory agencies to punish companies for conducting their normal day to day business

When their business is polluting and Bush (and Perry) systematically hindered the agencies power, actually enforcing the laws is not "punishing" companies. Same goes for the financial industry--had Bush done anything but encourage their actions, we would not have had all of the fraudulent mortgages that helped bust the economy.

nor made it a point to hand pick winners and losers in private industry

You mean like Perry's corporate slush fund that he uses to award millions to his campaign contributors?

That glass house of yours has absolutely no windows left.

Troll, given your excuses -- which I presume are the best you could come up with -- why would anyone vote to keep Obama in the White House? He's continued the worst of other people's examples, and added more of his own. For fun and documentation, we have the following (with apologies to everyone else for its length):

- Obama added $3.6 trillion to the debt in less than two years, despite the debt being one of the biggest concerns of Americans. Obama cited the creation of "shovel-ready jobs" with his trillion-dollar stimulus bill, only to later confess (after he had signed the legislation into law) that "there's no such thing as shovel-ready projects."

- Obama constantly touts "fairness" in raising tax rates on the "rich." This is despite the fact that lower tax rates actually increased the amount of taxes the "rich" paid. So to Obama it's more important that they be punished, than to increase the amount of revenue the government brings in. (Obama has already disavowed signing the Bush tax rate extension that he bragged about in December -- once again playing both sides of an issue.)

- When Obama's cap-and-trade legislation failed in Congress (due to overwhelming opposition from American voters) he simply transferred it to the EPA, funding them and directing them to do exactly what the failed legislation was to do. Regarding the well-being of Americans, here's Obama's exact quote: "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." It couldn't be done legitimately, so Obama passed it to a regulatory agency without Congressional approval or oversight.

- "like (repeat Perry Liberababble)" No, I mean like taking Chrysler away from legitimate shareholders and giving it to his union buddies and now Fiat. Other than perhaps a high school paper route, Obama has never had a private sector job, so he is the least qualified person on the planet to know what to do with the private sector.

Now, troll, I once again cast Kingsfield's shroud back over you.

The foundational principle of the GOP is that if you just turn business loose, they will take care of all societies prblems. Never mind 19th century monopolies, the Greatest Depression, Love Canal, the S&L failure and bailout (by REAGAN!) ENRON, BP Petrolium spill, etc. After all, Republican President Calvin Coolidge said it best," The business of America is business." Study what happened under his administration and what occured w/in 6 years after his fiasco. So, if your a GOP'er, you must agree with that philosophy; if not, you must hope for something better out of our system of gov't. And WordVile, er, WordKyle, your attempts at rewriting history are starting to detract from your earlier credibility. (Here's 61)

Goob, misstating your opposition's position doesn't make you right. Basing your entire post on your own misstatement does, however, make you look silly, and a bit lost. Here's the 2008 GOP platform. Feel free to point out anything that implies "turning business loose."

Sad, wordkyle, you just keep repeating the same dribble. No response whatsoever to the fact that Republicans are absolutely the most guilty of every form of corporate welfare and deficit spending out there. Hell, the Republican Congress just RAISED the debt ceiling. Why not cut spending? Why not pay down debt?

You're still more pathetic than just about any freeper I've ever had the displeasure of interacting with. But rubbing your nose in your own shit sure is fun.
