blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Friday Morning Thoughts

Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • Edit: First photo is a repeat? Sheesh. I posted the second one which is actually from a Dallas club. 
  • Some lady tried to walk across highway 183 this morning at the 114 split (just east of old Texas Stadium). She's dead and westbound 183 is shut down. 
  • There was an young African-American albino who [was] up at the courthouse yesterday on the misdemeanor docket. Growing up is hard enough, and I can't imagine what he's been through.  [Edit: Man, that was a hard first sentence to write and it still sounds goofy.]
  • President Obama chest bumped former Baylor player and current Auburn coach Trooper Taylor at the White House. "Represent!"
  • I saw a preview of the new government run Wise County judicial/criminal web site that is coming. That's a lot of public information which will suddenly become very public.
  • Fox 4 had a segment of a lot of folks inter-tubing on the Trinity River in Fort Worth and listening to live music. One word: Nasty.
  • Newt Gingrich's campaign imploded yesterday as all of his top campaign staff resigned. And if this guy knows what he's talking about, the top two are headed to Texas to join Rick Perry. (That would be a bombshell.)
  • Doesn't mean much to me, but there was a fishing tournament at Lake Bridgeport last weekend (link includes pictures.)
  • Noticed that there's an "And Another" and possible  "Hey Now" on the Jack County felony court docket for this allegation last year.  Edit: Wow. She agreed to a plea bargain of eight years in prison last week (although, oddly, "sentencing" is not until July 1st.)
  • Ann Coulter is pimping another one of her silly books. Does her publishing company pay to have her promote it on Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. or do they just have her on for free?
  • Fox and Friends plays to its demographics: They have Loverboy performing this morning.
  • Lots of Mav fans were upset with this CBS 11 video of James and Wade mocking dirk for being sick. I'm not so sure what the big deal is.
  • I may be the only guy around here that noticed, but Andrew Gold, who had the hit "Lonely Boy", died this week. That song takes me back to high school like no other. (Although it did get a little tricked up for me when it became the background song for a crazy pool scene in Boogie Nights.)
  • The Update leads with Rhome purchasing signs to announce its "Zero Tolerance" policy.  Now "anyone caught violating drug laws in city limits can be charged with the maximum penalty available."  I think that means a person may receive the maximum penalty which is exactly the same law of every town and city in the nation. On the other hand, if the city means that they are directing the city judge to always assess the maximum penalty for anyone who pleads guilty, they are going to need those extra fines because they are about to have a big problem.

The photo above is a repeat!! I know because I saved this photo the first time I saw it:)

ALSO in the Update:

PARK VANDALISM – The restrooms at Harmon Park in Decatur have been closed to the public and replaced with portable toilets due to continued vandalism, according to Mayor Joe Lambert. Damage includes urinals that have been torn from walls and fecal matter spread on walls. Trash is also left at the nearby skate park, and the adjacent playground has sustained damage as well.

Let's see, school has only been out 1 week and the young teens who seem to be @ that park VERY late into the night have already gotten bored? Maybe picking up trash alongside the highways the rest of the summer wearing orange vests will wear them out and get them in bed @ a decent hour.

YES, the first photo is a repeat.....you used it only a few months ago.

It's not as if you used it back in 2008 or something.

How's your memory lately, Barry?

wordkyle said...

Whether you agree or disagree with Coulter's point of view or her conclusions, you have to admit that her "silly" books are great examples of research and erudition.

The sad thing about Andrew Gold's death is that he'll mainly be remembered for writing the "theme to the Golden Girls." (I cringed when I read that on AOL.)

The Gingrich campaign has its problems, but they are about strategy, not philosophy. He's probably the most intelligent candidate around, including Obama. It still remains to be seen what will happen with Perry.

As a Phoenix Suns fan, I find your Mavs hate appalling. It seems to me that you're just not a fan of that particular sport because your arguments are little more than, 'well they've never won before'. But when the Rangers got to the World Series last year, you didn't have such a negative attitude towards them even though both clubs have a similar history of being losers.

wordkyle said...

1004 - Congratulations on your epiphany that Coulter writes from a particular perspective. No one else knew that. Considering how her books consistently hit the bestseller lists, there are a lot of "lemmings" out there. (By the way, you do know that the lemming story is a myth, don't you?)

Anonymous said...

WK, why would I need to read the words of crazed anti-semite religous elitist? That one interview really told me all about Coulter that I needed to know. Have you been "perfected" by reading her rubbish? I do find your erudition on the topic commendable but your continual defense of the most radical right wingnuts is quite appalling! You are the problem in America, why can't you see it. Do we need to put the abortion clinics on alert to your presence?

By the way, thanks for linking us back to Mzchief spanking your azz on the Coulter topic!

"I do not care how some pandering, Jewish apologist spins, in a failed attempt to excuse, Coulter's anti-Semite rant. Coulter is, without a doubt, an intolerant, hate-mongering shrew who makes a point to appeal to the lowest brow bunch of sleazeballs."--by "lowest brow bunch of sleazeballs" I can only assume she means you! That last nugget was ascertained by my erudition of her previous comments!

1027 - You don't have to read Coulter's books to comment on them. You have to read them to comment intelligently. Your didn't-read list apparently includes the link to a Jewish writer's comments on Coulter's remarks:

"Ann Coulter is no anti-Semite. Everybody with political or religious beliefs wishes others shared that belief. What's wrong with that? I think the Jews are the Chosen People. My Gentile friends and colleagues are coping with that just fine. Secular Liberals believe that they, too, have the answers."

Your claiming that someone is an anti-Semite (or racist, or homophobe, or Nazi) doesn't make them one. I'll give you the same largess I gave Mzchief: "I think your distaste for Coulter (understandable, even if I may not agree) is coloring your discernment."

Wordkyle, where did I ever say racist, homophobe or nazi? I said the only thing that I can prove about Coulter, which is that she is very much an anti-semite (racist, homophobe and nazi are undoubtedly what comes to mind when you think of her so that speaks volumes). Do I need to read someone's book when they, in a very public manner, act out what they are. Am I supposed to believe whatever you tell me about someone you support just because you tell me it is so? What she did (to Donny Deutsch) was no different than calling someone the n-word (since you bring up race) over and over and over to their face, how you can support that is beyond logic! Why would I ever give her money by buying her books to read?

Why don't you just say it, you agree that your utopia is exactly what Coulter laid out in this famous interview, mostly white, affluent Christians and the remainder be wiped off the map. She spelled that out loud and clear. That is why you scare the shiate out of me!

And I leave you with another anti-Semitic rambling of Coulter..."In addition to having a number of family deaths among them, the Democrats' other big idea – too nuanced for a bumper sticker – is that many of them have Jewish ancestry. There's Joe Lieberman: Always Jewish. Wesley Clark: Found Out His Father Was Jewish in College. John Kerry: Jewish Since He Began Presidential Fund-Raising. Howard Dean: Married to a Jew. Al Sharpton: Circumcised. Even Hillary Clinton claimed to have unearthed some evidence that she was a Jew – along with the long lost evidence that she was a Yankees fan. And that, boys and girls, is how the Jews survived thousands of years of persecution: by being susceptible to pandering." The reverend Chuck Currie was "sickened" by this comment and you should be as well!

Your attempt to rectify the problem of the RT repeat is a "bust" - not really better, just bigger

People who write books do all sorts of things to get us to buy those books. No big surprise there. The fact that you think Coulter's book is "silly" is because you disagree with her philosophy. That's no surprise either

Jack County "Another/Hey Now" teacher:
Story sez the parents tried to keep it quiet so that their son wouldn't be embarassed. Let's see...he talked his attractive youngish teacher into playing Yankee Doodle on his flute. I've never heard of an 18yo (or 19, or 20, etc.) being ashamed of that

wordkyle said...

1155 - Your feigned ignorance doesn't quite fly. I said that calling someone an epithet doesn't make it true. Calling someone an anti-Semite is the same as calling them a racist, homophone or a Nazi -- a fundamental Liberal tactic.

As for Coulter's "anti-Semitic rambling" -- perhaps you should cite the passage in context. Coulter is poking fun at Democrat politicians suddenly discovering their Jewishness whenever an election rolls around. From that same column of Coulter's: "The Democrats' urge to assert a Jewish heritage is designed to disguise the fact that the Democrats would allow the state of Israel to perish as Palestinian suicide bombers slaughter Jewish women and children."

Wordkyle, well I am not a liberal, and my calling her an anti-semite is based off of her owns words and actions! I have always been a conservative and I think for our party to survive the only hope is to call out the radical right side of our party who, like you, seem so intent on destroying it. You alone might not be all that radical but your support of extremist pundits that preach hate is dangerous. I don't like it when the lefty libs do it either, but hey that is their party to destroy.

By the way, putting it in context does not detract from its anti-semitism. Had it mattered I would have gladly done so; insinutating I took the quote out of context to prove a point is a nice trick but does not apply here.

128 - You quoted Coulter's passage out of context to support your opinion that she was an anti-Semite. In doing so you changed its meaning, her intent and the overall sentiment of her column. That's pretty significant, and indicative of how you form your opinions. Did you even know where the passage came from, or were you simply repeating what you had seen on a Liberal website?

As for her own words and actions, Ann Coulter has been consistently supportive of Israel and Jews, when she mentioned them at all. (Except for Liberal Jews; but them she mocked for their Liberalism, not their Jewishness.) If you think otherwise, then you definitely haven't read her work.

I have no idea if she's an anti-Semite, and would say based on the links that she is not.

But, not disliking Jews and having compassion for your fellow Americans are two different things. Like many on the right, she's content to let the helpless starve and go homeless and uneducated, as long as they don't have to lend a hand. All under the guise of Christianity and a "God-given" free-enterprise system.

They forgot the Jesus threw out the money changers...

She will obviously resort to anti-semitism in lieu of dicussion real issues, that is a classy gal right there. You keep making my points for me.
I don't read many liberal websites, or form opinions based on info from pundits like you obviously do. Coulter's quotes and the anti-semitic remarks are out there on con and lib sites alike. Google em oh link master.

I don't know how you can make the leap from her believing jews need to "perfected" to that she only meant that for liberal jews. That is like saying I support African Americans but I wish they would change everthing about their culture and become just like me. If you truly believe she is not an anti-semite then you must believe she just had a really bad day when she made her famous remarks.

404 - Truly, you have a dizzying intellect. You are able to take a passage out of context, change the meaning of the passage, get called out for it, admit that you took it out of context, and then argue that it doesn't matter. I know you can't help yourself, but I like to point such things out -- not with the idea of hoping that you'll change, but that others will see your foolishness for what it is.

When looking at what you call Coulter's "anti-Semitic" remarks, I think of Natan Sharansky's 3D Test of Anti-Semtism.

1. Did Coulter Demonize Jews? No.
2. Did Coulter apply Double standards to Jews? Nope.
3. Did Coulter Delegitimize Jews? More no.

Since Sharansky has suffered from real anti-Semitism, his measurements carry a lot of authority.

OK, Skippy, you and WK aren't the only ones noticing Andrew Gold's passing, and I agree with Wordy that it's a shame to be remembered for Thank You for Being a Friend.

Gold was a very talented musician. I saw him at DCCA in Dec 1976 - He played a short solo set betweem Leo Sayer's opener and Linda Ronstadt's headliner, then took his place in her band for the remainder of the show.

He was a big part of the '70s SoCal "music mafia" and re-grouped with Karla Bonoff (I Can't Hold On; Personally), Wendy Waldman, and Kenny Edwards (one of Ronstadt's Stone Poneys) in the '90s as Bryndle.

You mean the other party instead of your party, otherwise you would have deemed me to be on track, right?

Was that really you and if so I am curious to know what makes him a bad gov but would make him a good Pres.

Yep, it was me. I want him to do to the federal budget what he helped do to the state budget. I think that was improper for a state budget, however. I think that if he panders to the tea partiers, we'll be out of Afghanistan and hopefully Iraq. And maybe he'll reduce foreign spending, like the constant welfare we give to other countries. Those two things will fix our budget.

I doubt he will though, because he'll try to boost military spending and of course keep funding Israel even though they stab us in the back every chance they get. And he'll ruin social services, which will further throw our country into the rear of the bus with respect to innovation and invention, but that's pretty much a done deal anyway so they could at least keep the taxes low while we go to hell in a handbasket.

So, basically, if we're screwed either way, I may as well keep more of my own damn money.

That's a lot of ignorance in one sentence, right there. Please show support for these death panels. And tell me how it differs from carriers denying coverage to those in need of healthcare, causing them to die without treatment.

Oh yeah, your death panels are "free enterprise," and therefore just fine, as opposed to the imaginary death panels of the Obama administration.

And if you truly think those in need will be helped, you have your head so far up wordkyle's ass that you could give him the colonoscopy he couldn't get otherwise.

wordkyle said...

Well, some prominent Liberals certainly believe there will be death panels.

Obama's head of Medicare Donald Berwick has already admitted that rationing is inevitable, and specifically targeted the terminally ill and those toward the end of their lives as being the subjects of some "difficult conversations" when it comes to healthcare costs.

Perhaps Big Ed's comment was not as ignorant as portrayed by others.

Matt G said...

"Now "anyone caught violating drug laws in city limits can be charged with the maximum penalty available." I think that means a person may receive the maximum penalty which is exactly the same law of every town and city in the nation. "

We routinely will find some weed and a pipe, toss the weed, and write a Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia ticket. Or stop a guy on the highway 700 feet from a school, and not bother enhancing the charge to "Drug Free Zone." Apparently Rhome is done doing that, which is certainly their right. But it may not be an economical use of their time.

Wordkyle, I find it funny that the only time you believe the liberal media is when they say something that backs up your (inaccurate) arguments. Is a New York Times columnist qualified to go through the health care plan that nobody (yes, including Democrats) read? Please. Not to mention the fact that today if you're terminally ill, health insurance companies won't do anything but pay to keep you drugged. It's not like anyone, even today, actually puts a person to death. Basically, the current system of decision making will remain in place. Even today a person's only chance at getting further treatment once they're terminal is to experiment on them, paid for by research hospitals or pharmaceutical companies.

Stop lying wordkyle.

2:07 AM, the Rhome Police will do the same. The draconian council forces this useless legislation as a burden on the police who already enforce the laws already on the books. The kids of Rhome are not going to be protected from drugs by a stupid metal sign that some council member wanted, but by parents and teachers who educate them about the dangers of drugs. The sign company guy is sending his kids to college off this dumb idea, and Rhome taxpayers are paying for it.

Anonymous said...

Don't think It will help their economy in Rhome. A city that has the problems with drugs they do are now advertising they have the problem. Waste of taxpayer money to put up signs and it will not stop the drug traffic. They already know all they can do is fine them 500 or sit in jail for 5 days max. Rhome can't prosecute drug charges just the paraphernalia that is in possession of the person.

wordkyle said...

My point seems to have escaped some of the slower readers. It's that even a New York Times columnist admits there will be death panels. And the head of HHS should have a pretty good idea of what's in store under Obamacare.

Those same slow readers might look up the definition of the phrase terminal illness. Insurance pays for the majority of hospice care; hospice workers do quite a bit more than simply keep terminally ill patients drugged.

Although Obama denied there would be "death panels," he also said that the Democrat legislation would not provide funds for abortions. Since that statement was untrue, any denials about death panels don't hold a lot of water either.

How can a columnist "admit" anything? Is he in charge? Is he implementing policy?

And you still have yet to distinguish it from the current system. The only difference, even if rationing did occur, would be that because a person had lifelong access to to healthcare, they are much more likely to live longer than an uninsured person of today. So if they get to the rationing point, which millions of Americans do already today, they will be much older than people today.

I fail to see how universal healthcare is a bad thing.

Word, your "dizzying intellect" is the one in question. The use of anti-semetic remarks in the essay was all that I was pointing out. She wasn't quoting or using them for reference, these were her words. The point is, using hate speech so flippantly while gigging her rivals became the underlying theme of her essay. The context of Coulter's essay did not matter because it clearly contained anti-semetic language. The only thing I admitted was that the context was irrelevent! Trouble seeing forest for the trees much? In this case maybe you only see a forest, your forest!

Why keep backing up my points, Sharansky's #3 on the test fits perfectly with Coulter's comments in both the Deutsch interview and the essay.

You would trounce on her quicker Anthony Weiner after some stray tail!

wordkyle said...

Ann Coulter and her remarks don't need any defense against silly accusations of anti-semitism. I respond to such silliness not with the hope of changing the accuser's mind -- it's with the idea of pointing out our differences to innocent by-readers. What you have done is illustrate how far the Left will stretch to use that kind of label. Just as with Liberal cries of "Racist!", you devalue the terms by applying them indiscriminately for political arguing points, without regard to the damage that actual racism and anti-semitism do.
