Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • The Random Girls(s) pic is from the opening of Bikini's sports bar in Arlington. More here.
  • One of my first trials as a prosecutor involved a Resisting Arrest case at Hooters. My first witness was the manager on duty who, when asked to describe the restaurant, took it upon herself to go into PR mode and describe it as"a family friendly environment." Good start.
  • Lake Bridgeport is 11 1/2 feet low and it looks like it is now on pace to begin losing a shocking two feet per week. 
  • I've heard that very few people have been on the lake this summer. Makes sense. Being in a boat on a lake in this heat seems like it would be absolutely no fun.
  • Our local Texas Ranger (the law enforcement one) played football for the University of Louisville during the team's glory years around 1990.
  • If you ever saw the documentaries on The West Memphis Three on HBO then (1) you loved those shows, and (2) you'll be interested to know those "boys" might be released today. 
  • We had a Wheel's Off Waiter at Texas Land and Cattle last night at a birthday celebration. That is, if you consider having your salad, appetizer, and main course all arrive within five minutes of each other as being Wheel's Off.
  • I'm not saying it is so, but the Paradise Murder case has the potential to be bizarre. And I think the cops now know the name of the deceased but I don't know if they've figured out where she is from.
  • Drove by the University of North Texas' new stadium yesterday. It looks really nice but it's also like a 5A high school stadium on steroids. 
  • Honor in odd places? So far in Wise County, if a prosecutor makes a promise or a representation, you can take it to the bank. It may be one of the last places in the state where you can say that.  Sadly, there will come a day when that is no longer true.
  • The Third Grader in the House told me the other day that she "had been in the longest line in the history of lines." Attagirl
  • I had no desire to watch Most Eligible: Dallas on the Bravo channel, but I'm going to after hearing about how pompous the guys on the show are.
  • Shouldn't we be a little bit nervous that Israel, in retaliation for the death of eight within its borders, has sent jets to bomb the Gaza Strip? That's not exactly the kind of tension you want to get out of hand. 
  • In other international news, the Georgetown Hoyas went to war yesterday with Red China during a basketball game. Video. Oh, my.
  • We're getting a new clothes dryer today. That appliance better be prepared for me to stand over it with a stop watch because I want to see some fast drying, and I want to see it today

Georgetown video: At about the :40 mark, notice the guy standing by the basket when he spreads his arms wide, like he's bringing peace to the troubled waters or something...what's funny is that there's no one around him! Funneee...

Yea, that Israel thing is definitely over the top. I mean, that would be like England, France and USA bombing the beejeezus out of a little country like Lybia just because.....uh....uh... well, just because.

Oh, and if Obama really wants Assad gone frome Syria, the quickest way to accomplish that would be to pay Israel to make it happen.

Reading in the China newspaper it was reported that a pleasant sporting event took place and China overwhelmed the visiting college team in a peaceful event....errrr... the game never happened.

How many women do you have in your house? And so why do you need a clothes dryer?? PUT UP A CLOTHES LINE!

Why has Georgetown always appeared to be an all black school.... ever since Patrick Ewing and John Thompson days ..... if you didn't know what the school was about, based on their basketball team, you wouldn't know.

The TF Family cat needs to know - even if it does kills him:
How is the description of Hooters relevant to the resisting arrest case? Did you expect her to say "Four walls, kitchen, everywhere you look -Hooters...logo!"?

Today's Random Thoughts pic (and the link) did not inspire any desire to visit that place. If you call yourself Bikinis, shouldn't the talent working there be...up to the job? Looks like they just threw a net out into the street and went trawling

I was all set to yell "SWEEP!", but the Rangers lost last night. So I'll just settle for "Sweet" (3 out of 4). Win every series from now on through the playoffs, and you can get out your big box of Crayons and color me sports happy. I won't even care if you go outside the lines

West Memphis Three. If that case doesn't scare the hell put of you, then that scares the hell out of me.
Those men are innocent. First hint? When news broke the headlines were, Police believe murders may have been part of a Satanic ritual...

Nice to see Obama bribe the Hispanic community before his vacation.

I wonder if the black community
cares if that continues to inflate
the unemployment problem?

And don't start with the jobs Americans won't do BS. Cut unemployment benefits to 30 days and you will have plenty lining up.

It's bout time that Israel fought back hard and their bombing of Gaza accomplishes two things. One, it kills a bunch of terrorist Arabs and Second, it tells the Obama Admin to stuff their recent attitude towards Israel.

The unmitigated gall of those dang Jews! How dare they try to stop a bunch of thug terriorist from attacking them by going after them! I am appalled sir! Flat out appalled! (Please note this is sarcasm.) I don't understand you libs. You think it is fine for hooligans to loot and riot in the streets of England because they are so oppressed but when Israel is attacked you defend the terrorist (and I don't mean teapartiers Mr. Biden). Seriously? How you libs manage to walk and chew gum at the same time is beyond me.

A couple of those Bikinis' girls must like to imbibe from the look of their bellies. The girl in the red top looks best to me.

It's reassuring to know that Obammy promised not to meddle in the affairs of other countries like the cowboy Bush. Except for Quadafi, Assad and Mubarek.

We have the Bikini's bars in Austin. The food is absolutely horrid, but the beers are cold and the scenery is nice.

Is the white angle RT girl pregnant? I'd have fun with the big girl on the far left. She looks like she can take a pounding.

I think it's hilarious that of all the things that the racists on here have chosen to comment on so far, they are the happiest that a bunch of black people got beat.

10:01 agreed. Obama shouldn't be too quick to assume the hispanic community is on his side either. I just had a conversation with several and they are not impressed by his newest plot. Was funny to here them say, "He's done nothing!"

They said his latest plot is like having a wound and Obama has put some medicine on it that's all. The wound is still there.

Rage, I'm a racist and I haven't said anything about being happy that a bunch of black people got beat. But the day is early. I describe myself as a racist because I hate stupid people that belong to the human race.

He's gone after some of the most anti-American regimes there. Why do Republicans have a problem with that?

Because they weren't the ones to do it, that's why.

Republicans start wars for BS and petty reasons. Democrats start and finish them for the right ones.

I think the Random Thought girl in the feathers is out of her age class.

I was hoping you would buy the industrial dryer that could double as a cement mixer. Diesel engine on top. Now, that would be some clothes drying to see!

So, are the Georgetown Hoyas our new military strike team? Next stop: Gaza.

That may actually be the most asinine statement you have made on here. And you make plenty.

I don't know, 12:53. FDR started WWII (from America's involvement, anyway), and Truman dropped the bomb on the Japs. Twice.

Clinton got us into and out of the Balkans.

Obama killed Bin Laden.

Sounds like an argument to be made...

Obama doesn't even own a gun, so how did he kill Bin Laden?

Rage, What part of "I am not going to meddle in the affairs of other countries like the cowboy Bush did" do you not understand? Do you see any hypocrisy in that statement?

It's still Obamas fault.

1:13, If you're saying that the war on terror is over because your Lord and Savior Obammy killed Bin Laden instead of years of intelligence because of Bush, and no credit to the Navy Seals, then I have to conclude that you don't keep on current events much do you?

Rage, I love to shoot holes in your liberal weenie way of thinking. Did you just see where The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the US and Afghanistan are signing a strategic pact which would allow for thousands of US troops to remain in Afghanistan until 2024? You might want to fire up the draft because who in there right mind would enlist to protect those towel head niggers? I do give you credit though for ending just wars. You just didn't say how long they would take. (No citation needed)

I love the Republican Way of changing the subject. You idiots are so good at that. Leave Obama alone. He's still trying to clean up from the 8 years of W fucking everything up and running everything into the ground.

Ok, your turn. Change the subject.
