Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Krishonda "Shonda" Leann Townsend, 19, went missing a couple of summers ago in Palo Pinto County after spending the day at Lake Bridgeport.  With little news coverage, she was buried over the weekend after her bones were found back in October. 
  • Rick Perry said in the debate of Friday night that he would send troops back into Iraq. Does he understand that he's supposed to try to get votes?
  • The "Deadlist Sniper" seems to want to make some money promoting his killing expertise in the Middle East. He proclaims that he has killed 255 as a Navy Seal. (All terrorists, I'm sure.) And if you've ever known a war vet who has seen ugly, ugly things, you know one thing: They do not want to talk about it. 
  • Tim Tebow, in his amazing win yesterday, passed for 316 yards. Uh, John 3:16?
  • Tebow and the rookie QB for the Texans, T.J. Yates, now have as many playoff wins as Tony Romo.
  • Have the folks over at Fox 4 always pronounced reporter Saul Garza's name as "SAWuul"? I heard that this morning.  
  • Horrible accident in Boyd this weekend that killed a young man, but are dead cows normally hauled off into the woods?
  • More craziness in the Porsche-in-a-Canal case.  All three had been to a strip club together before the crash. 
  • Was there one long thunder last night? 
  • Spent a much delayed Christmas afternoon (a sequel) at my parents on Sunday. I never knew watching girls open up gifts of clothing could be so intense. 
  • Despite the receipt, her name was not "Lady Chinky Eyes."
  • You would think Bourbon Street after the LSU/Alabama game tonight would be down right dangerous.
  • Water related: (1) Ryan Seacrest's girl can dive, (2) If you ever thought about bungee jumping, you won't do it after this, (3) Lake Bridgeport is 12 feet low but has basically remained constant since October. 
  • There's a commercial running on the radio about some cyber "dog" who will go and fetch the best deals on the Internet for products. Wasn't there a search engine years ago that used the same type of advertising campaign?
  • Edit: Then bungee jumping gal is a "Hey, now!"

How F'n classy to walk around with your pants unzipped. Why doesn't she just get a tattoo saying I'm a slut and would like to get pregnant and have kids by some unknown guy,be on welfare and drink all day long or somethin.

As weird as it sounds, pulling dead livestock into a field to decompose naturally is a common, legal, and recommended practice.

Served in the military and knew some vets who did talk about the ugly things they saw and did. I am sure we do not run in the same circles and maybe that is why these people prefer not to speak with you about such things.

There were many long loud thunders last night.

Yes, cows are usually hauled off to the back 40 and left for the coyotes..nature recycles. Although some people bury them too...depends on how much land you have.

My neighbor always drags his dead cows over to the fence next to my barn. The smell is terrible for several weeks. Can this be legal?

NFL recap:
I was actually hoping the Broncos would win. But that probably has something to do with my severe dislike for the Steelers/Roethlisberger. Talking Tebow, I told somebody over the holidays that Jesus doesn't take an active interest in the NFL, and if he did the Broncos wouldn't be his team (the Saints...right?). I need to rethink that position.
If Jesus did like the NFL, what kind of awesome fantasy team could he field? Ditka's Bearsss wouldn't stand a chance against that!
There's no way a team should win a playoff game with only 10 completions.
New OT rules?! Sorry, ref - you just wasted several minutes explaining all that crap to us. Game over!
I was also rooting for TCU's Andy Dalton (not necessarily the Bengals), but a Houston win is okay. At least one of the teams in Texas is worth watching - and in the playoffs (with Wade)!
The only disappointment was that the stupid Giants won

Tebow, Yates and Romo only have 1 more playoff win than Quinthy Carter.

Not only is dead cattle dragged to the back forty, since the horse killing plants have been shut down someone dumped 2 horses on me.

Sawul is the correct pronunciation for Saul.

From the gringa...who does speak it.

9:08 Agreed! Most vets who served in combat will only discuss what happened with another vet. I know, been there, done that! However, being a sniper is a whole other class of combat unto itself. Kyle deserves all our thanks and gratitude and if he can make some money from his book, all the more power to him. Audie Murphy did it in WWII and why shouldn't this sniper, after all he went through serving his country and saving American lives. His was an extremely dangerous and lonely job. He definitely is an American hero!

And yes, taking dead calves amd/or livestock into the woods for nature to recycle is a very normal thing to do, if you have the land to do it.

Tarrant County can only take so many acre feet of water out of Lake Bport per year, they reached their qouta in October. January begins a new year.

In the old days, when cattle died you called the renderer to come get them and take them to the rendering plant to be rendered into soap and dog food. (Using render in a sentence three times is hard to do.) Mr. Moore that owned the rendering plant in Hamilton was known as "Stinky Moore". Everyone -- including his wife -- called him Stinky. Unfortunately, the process involved many chemicals that are now thought to cause cancer and environmental waste. As a result, the industry and those jobs and a way to dispose of dead animals are all gone. That's progress.

And if you've ever known a war vet who has seen ugly, ugly things, you know one thing: They do not want to talk about it.

They don't want to talk to ignoramuses like you about what they did in war. They will talk to people they trust or respect.

Guys who don't talk about what they did in war generally have nothing to talk about.

Richard Winters and the men of Easy Company talked about war and thank God they did.

Compared to his pass right before that, Tebow's winning touchdown pass was a freakin miracle. Hmmmm.

If the people he whacked were, 'brown' and talked,'funny' then it's probably OK to talk about it and make some moolah.

"He proclaims that he has killed 255 as a Navy Seal." Barry, that is your interpretation of the information.
Every sniper has a spotter who watches the kill. The spotter confirms the kill. That information is then reported to the chain of command. The Navy proclaims this information.

p.s. He is the Deadliest Sniper, not the Deadlist.

Consilium ac prudentia said...

RE Vets not talking about the things they have seen: BG your statement is asanine. They don't talk about it when people of your ilk criminalize them for doing their job. They don't talk about it when they know it's top secret. They don't talk about it when they are traumatized by the situation. They do talk about it with friends and loved ones when they can trust them and want to talk about it or get it off their chest. They do want to talk about it when they want to educate ignorant people about war and it's necessity. This is quite possibly the most ignorant thing I have seen you say. You said it to criticize, demonize, and denigrate the man because you disagree with the war he fought in. I say good for him for choosing to defend our country, living through it, choosing to discuss it, choosing to educate us, and capatilizing on it to help make a living.
