Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • The old guy from The Green Mile does a photoshoot with his child bride on the beach.
  • I really haven't followed the Amanda Knox case, but once the judge freed her yesterday, I would have bolted for the airport to get back to the United States. And I think she did.
  • Saw that the "Job Of The Day" on Fox 4 this morning was a "Front Desk Coordinator."
  • Political expert (?) Hank Williams, Jr. compared President Obama to Hitler yesterday, and I wondered if that would impact his (very old and tired) Monday Night Football theme song run. Well, ESPN killed it last night. Maybe they were just looking for an excuse to can it for good.
  • And it seems fitting that the crazy comparison occurred on Fox and Friends. That network may end up doing more harm than good to the conservative movement by the time it is all over with. 
  • Then the goofball "Boot In Your [Arse]" guy Toby Keith comes out and says he really doesn't have a problem with gay marriage. Man, this world is confusing.
  • Has any sitting President ever gone deer hunting and publicized it?
  • Thirty spotted donkeys in Bridgeport taken over by Humane Society.
  • I'm in trial today. Nothing fun about this one. I'll tell you more later. 
  • Even when I'm what they call a Senior Citizen, I don't think I'll fall for a scam like this Grapevine man did.
  • There were rumors of an American Airlines bankruptcy on the horizon, and folks got nervous yesterday when its already extremely low priced stock dropped by over a third
  • If Cowboys Stadium had the roof closed on Sunday (perfect weather), why go to the trouble of putting a retractable roof on it at all?
  • There's just something wrong about the baseball playoffs starting at 4:00 in the afternoon and being on TBS.

Amazing how ESPN had no other problems with other questionable aspects of Hank Jr.'s life (appearing drunk on stage, choking a waitress at a bar, etc.).....but insult Obama and he's TOAST!

Eva Longoria appeared on Jimmy Kimmel last week and made equally inflammatory remarks about Tea Partiers. I wonder if ABC/Disney/ESPN will punish her and her show as well?!??

If that chick is 17, I'll eat my friggin hat. Looks more like 37 to me. Way too much cake-face, and whats up with the spray on abs?!?!?
Her grandpa/hubby should be locked up, friggin peder-ass...

I bet Amanda Knox had a plane gassed up and waiting for her. France sucks...

Scamming a grandpa outta that much money really is pretty shitty, but I'm almost jealous that I didn't come up with that idea first. I'm tired of workin for a living... ♫

I can remember, back in the day, when the baseball playoffs and world series were played during the day and our grade school teachers would let us listen to them on the radio.

Teddy Roosevelt cultivated the outdoorsman image, which included pics of himself w/ dead deer that he didn't shoot. Different times and different expectations from the voters.

Your Hank Williams "spin" is not accurate. He in NO way called Obama Hitler.

I met Toby Keith once. He's a proud American and genuinely nice guy... and he's a Democrat. OH NOES!

How could you not follow the Knox case?

I think she is guilty. She changed her story so many times. Comparing different trial pics of her, some she looks crazy; some she looks normal; and mostly she looks hot.

Green Mile guy - must be gay. I would at least have a boner brewing...no that guy.

The ruckus over Hank Williams Jr.'s remarks is simple to explain. Conservative-leaning celebrities suffer consequences for expressing their opinions, and Liberals don't. Networks who don't punish Conservative-leaning celebrities for expressing their opinions also suffer consequences.
(For what it's worth, during Jr.'s interview he appeared to be drunk, stoned, or in some other altered state. The part of his brain that controls speech seemed to be on hiatus.)

3 out of 5? She's easily one of the top three women I've ever seen. Who get to be with that girl? I'm totallyt jealous.

Toby keith is a weird mixture of consevative Democrat. Down on the farm, proud of America, but still fairly progressive and disgusted with the Republican nut jobs. If more of the retards who listen to country music knew his real views, they'd kick him to the curb with the Dixie Chicks. No matter how many pro-military songs he writes.

Baseball playlist games should start at 1 pm and be on NBC with Vin Sculley, Joe Garagiola and Tony Kubek behind the mikes. I'm a little old school when it comes to baseball but give me the shot box graphics, extra cameras and audio production value.

I heard ABC supplied a corporate jet to the Knox family for their departure. One would think they would have had a current passport ready for her exit in the case of a successful appeal, which Ms. Knox did not have.

The Fox News Channel essentially is "The Sun" with audio and moving pictures. Rupert Murdoch has made a mint knowing that the "respectable papers" are boring and don't sell through to your average lumpen prole. CNN is "respectable" and its ratings suck because it's boring. MSNBC tries to be a liberal tabloid which is such an oxymoron it gives me a headache.

You know how how to make a small fortune in the airline business? You start with a large one.

Photoshop or not, nice work on Tuesday's RTG. You've set the bar high for the week.

Fox wanted the roof closed because of the shadows make for a bad broadcast like the old Texas Stadium.

Wordkyle making excuses for someone bashing Obama?

Is this one of those posts that his internet reputation rests on?

As for liberals not suffering consequences, see my Dixie Chicks example, above.

Ricardo Perry said...

Wordkyle is simply wrong for stating that punishment for ignorant comments is one-sided.

The Dixie Chicks have never been the same for Maines' opinion of Bush; and as I recall there were sponsored album burnings, as well as death threats.

Don't worry about American Airlines. Obammy will take it over and hand the operations to his Union thugs. Sound familiar?

Hank Williams ruckus:

Lemme see, Jimmy Hoffa Jr. calls Tea Partiers "son of a b-tches" at an obama fundraiser...nada, nothing (except on Fox). Joe Biden, the VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY calls the team partiers "terrorists"...Nothing happens to him. Now imagine if those two were republicans, Hoffa would have been expelled from his group and Biden would have been impeached. Even as left-leaning as you are, Barry, you can obviously see the doubloe-standard.

Yeah, something even wrongerer about a Rangers' playoff game starting @ 1:00pm regardless of what channel it's on. But then, the Rangers aren't the Yankees - the little media darlings. I hope they win their series just so that we can beat them again for the ALCS.
Buck Martinez = a power-down that results in the volume getting turned down. Has anybody at the network ever sat and listened to him for more than a few seconds? I can't do it. Every time he talks, it sounds as if a swarm of bees flies out of his mouth. There's just a high-pitched droning - the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. And he wants to fill up every little gap in the game. He should watch a regular-season game and take note of how much time is spent NOT talking

There's not too much confusing about Toby Keith if you realize that he is self-identified as a Democrat, in spite of his right-wing song lyrics. You're making the mistake of automatically assuming that patriotic equates to conservative

Freedom of speech means you have the freedom to say just about anything you want without censorship or punishment from the government. It also means that you have the freedom to suffer the consequences from private enterprise.

Hank is being singled out again because he spoke up against King Obamy in some stupid manner. My gosh, people, get a grip on it, and stop all of this. If the liberal weinner news people would treat everyone equally, there wouldn't be all of this going on!

Rage. Dude! Why do you always try and educate these anti-intellectuals? They all know about Toby and the Chicks. They are a lot smarter than we are. Hell. If you read wordy's comments he even knows what liberal and liberal conservatives’ think. Oops. Wait a minute gun toting liberal conservative…?

Yes. We do exist and love God, America and guns.

American Airlines is the largest employer in DFW. If they file BK and shut down the Alliance Maintenance Base, it will be devastating to the area.

When I think of all the great political minds out there, Hank Williams Jr. is certainly at the top of the list. I'm sure glad that at least one news station is out there covering it.

Bush was refered to and compared to Hitler a thousand times. Just one reference to the Kenyan as Hitler and you left wingers go crazy.

Cleverly Disguised said...

The state of Mr. Williams’ consciousness is exactly why he was asked to appear on FOX. Why anyone would give a damn what opinion or slur he postulates is a mystery. He is a marginal talent that happened to be well born and that is why anybody remembers him at all. He is an example of the conservative style of discourse of late. “If I disagree with you (or I’m just a bigot, regardless), I won’t bother with any meaningful discussion, I will just resort to race baiting, name calling or any other non germane personal attack I can muster through the fog.

From today's Denton Record Chronicle. I think someone on this blog has been holding out on us....

"2300 block of West Prairie Street — A man reported Saturday that he rents a two-bedroom apartment so that he can use the second bedroom for his office in his presidential campaign.

He opened a file where he keeps documents for his exploratory committee findings and discovered that someone had taken a number of bank-issued temporary checks for his campaign, he said."

For Pete's sake LL, the Fox people disavowed what the idiot said. What would you have had them do?
If that had been MSNB and someone said something equally dumb about a conservative they would have all danced around the studio and re-played it the rest of the day.

Damn, I couldn't agree more with Rage on both points. Toby Keith is the King of tools and the Duke of d-bags!

I forgot about the Dixie Chicks. I take back my original comment. There are three celebrities who suffered consequences for one Liberal political comment.

When I made the original comment I was thinking about the Hollywood blacklist of Conservatives that currently exists. And the number of celebrity comments about Bush, the Tea Party or Conservatives that never raised an eyebrow.

Alliance Maintenance Base should have been shut down years ago, cut out smoke breaks and benefits for all the Fags that work there and there you have it..next problem

Anonymous said...

All of your lib Dixie Chicks arguments don't hold water. They had the right to say what they wanted, but their core demographic happened to be southern and conservative. They were exercising their freedom of speech and the (ex) fans exercised their right to disagree (wholeheartedly, for sure) with them.

By the way, I agree completely with ratherbesailin's comments.

what upsets me is when cbs puts tennis on during the young and restless time, my direct tv has a tennis channel so why don't they show all tennis on that channel. Hank Williams Monday night football song is American as apple pie so what if he said they that stepped on some toes, (freedom of speech). Toby Keith may know some gay people, so live and let live. Keeping our Constitution rights and being human is more important that the iphone whatever, tennis during y&r, baseball at noon, Hank williams showing is butt. More important than that is that we let the small things bother us more than children being harmed, not helping our neighbors when they need it,and not being so judgemental when someone doesn't when someone doesn't agree with our views. Everbody is different is some way and i think there needs to be more acceptance.

Well in addition to the dixie chicks, there was a number of Hollywood types that were black-listed for alleged liberal views categorized as "communist" activities. Many of those careers were damaged permanently. I believe this was a result of the McCarthy hearings or influenced by said hearings.

wordkyle said...

You're right. In his pursuit of Communists, McCarthy hurt some innocent people. (Although the Verona papers reveal he was correct about communist Soviet agents in government.) I restricted my thoughts to within the last fifty years.
