Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Lake Bridgeport will probably rise a little over two feet due to the storms and will remain about two feet low. [Edit: I meant "ten feet low". Really. I knew that.]  It takes about a four day storm over the watershed to see a dramatic change. (I just like saying "watershed.")
  • At 5:30 this morning, I stumbled upon the semi-final match of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open. I couldn't (and probably wouldn't) sit around and watch it, but live sports before dawn is cool.
  • I follow a country pastor on Facebook who just oozes hatred. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen.
  • The Arizona governor sticking her finger in the President's face did her party no favors with that sign of disrespect.
  • In a press release yesterday by Garland police about the murder of a 40 year old by two teenage girls he had met  in a hotel to share sex, drugs, and alcohol, I loved this sentence: "At some point during the night, the party got out of hand," At some point? How about the moment they walked through the door.
  • Odd conversation with Mrs. LL last night: If I have felt better because of adding a salad to every meal, is it because there is something intrinsic in lettuce or is it because it is "empty calories" simply taking the place of bad food?
  • I saw an old girlfriend firing off real time Facebook pics from a bar last night. You know, it was good to be home. 
  • WBAP's Hal Jay on Tom Brady this morning: "He does have kind of that scumbag side to him." Really? 
  • A jury begins deliberating today whether to give the death penalty to a guy who killed two people during a robbery. Although death sentences are becoming less frequent, if they don't vote for it in this case then there truly is a change in the wind in Texas on the issue of capital punishment. 
  • But the Tarrant County DA's office will be tweeting about the verdict like they were watching a high school football game. 
  • A name connected with a famous Tarrant County murder case that I hadn't thought about in years: Kristi Koslow.
  • Several buildings of the Selwyn School in Denton (off to the right as you drive towards I-35) burned this morning. As a kid, I'd look at it and think really smart kids probably went there. I was probably right. (That link has a picture of the fire.)
  • Another wrong way crash on the Dallas tollway last night. Seems like it had been a few months since we have had one. 
  • I couldn't pic Lamar (Kardashian) Odom out of a lineup, but everyone sure is griping about how he couldn't care less to be a Dallas Maverick. Yet another reason rent-a-player killed pro sports.

Concerning the Arizon governor sticking her figner at the President...

I suppose as a Democrat, it's worth your while saying that this was a sign of disrespect...and then mention nothing else.

Of course, if you cared to comment on the entire news article, your loyal readers would know that the governer was giving back as much as she was given.

The Arizona Governor "incident" will garner two reactions. The hardline Republicans will cheer her, believing that Obama deserves no respect, while not realizing that moderates will be put off by her actions.

Anonymous said...

Obama's lucky that's all he got from the feisty Arizona governor. I disagree with BG's opinion on this one (and I'm not a Republican) -- her stock value rises because of her finger-pointing.

8:50 beat me to it. But yes, independent voters will not view the incident favorably.

Kristi Koslow still in jail. She was adopted by Jack Koslow and Caren Koslow was her stepmother. Her real mother and Jack are dead now. One of her friends was executed for killing Jack and Caren. The other is still in jail.
She was a teen with no remorse.

Anonymous said...

If you will read the article, you will find out that Obama started out on the Governor because she had portrayed him badly in a book that she wrote. Seems that I also read that he did the same to Bobby Jindal when he wrote something about Obama in a book.

Apparently, Obama is not used to people actually printing the truth about him.

Miss Koslow definitely didn't learn that inheritance is not a given. Talked two clods into trying to kill daddy & stepmom to speed up her estate payday. Wonder how she is enjoying the Women's Unit of the TDCJ? Think she gets any Xmas cards from her father who survived the attack? Nope, I don't either.

How is the finger pointing bad in this case? Obama gets off the in plane Arizona armed with a part of her book (he did not even read) where he thinks he looks bad.....SERIOUSLY that is the only thing he has to think about....is looking bad in a book?! Wow! Maybe he needs another round of golf to calm down.

Ready for my Kristi Koslow story, On the night of Jack Koslows Murder i had ran into a Block Buster Video store in Arlington right at closing time to get a couiple movies and change my memebrship to that store, the clerk was struggling with the task at hand and went to get a CoWorker to help with the process, this young man comes to her aid and was very sweaty and aggitated and put out by the request, he struggled and finally stared at me with a icy stare and said here take the movies at no charge and i will change it later and will not charge you, we had a long stare and i was pissed he was being a ass, i grabbed the movies and card and said someting to the extent of FO and left..the next morning Im reading the paper and see where jack koslow wife was killed and he seriously injured and all over the news, later i seen where they had arrested jeffrey Dillingham at the Arlington Blockbuster and it dawned on me he was checking me out an couple of hours before the murder, hence the sweaty nervous attitude, then a few days later I go into Leito Supply a masonry supply company on 820 and theres sits jack the owner who looked like he had been attacked by a mountain lion

BG, I know you're a big lawyer and all that, but you need correcting. Yes, the lake is up 2 feet from these recent rains, and we are so thankful to God for sending those rains our way. But the lake is still down 10 feet, not 2 feet as you state in your article. I knew you would want to hear the truth. ...........

I think the assumed reaction of "moderates" and "independents" to the Obama confrontation is presumptuous. Do those groups have more respect for politicians -- or for Obama, for that matter -- than those who declare a party affiliation? Likely 10% will be delighted, 10% will be offended, and the rest couldn't care less.

Anonymous said...

Good for Arizona gov to correct the King. I know it is dangerous to stand up against big people in name only, but it had to be done. Obamy needs some guidance and correction from time to time. I wish more people had the balls to do what she did! We might be better off!

You might want to re-calculate that, hoss.

Jan Brewer for President!

Anonymous said...

Bottom Line: It's rude to point your finger at anyone. You should always respect the office of the president. She was out of line and it portrayed her in a bad way. As a representative of Arizona, she should conduct herself in a more professional and dignified manner. Is it any wonder that young people today have such bad manners and lack of respect? People in high ranking positions need to keep this in mind prior to making a bad example.

Obama walked away from Gov. Brewer, after trying to scold her for what she said about him in her book that he didn't like! How about him showing her the respect she deserves as Gov. of Arizona, the state he was visiting at the time. He is so much like a spoiled, arrogant, child, it's truly unbelievable!!

Katy Anders said...

Seems like the Brewer/Obama incident is red meat for both sides.

Unfortunately for Brewer, though, O is more photogenic, so she comes looking like the crazy one, whether she is or not.

I am "old school" and believe the the POTUS should be respected regardless of the indiviaual who holds the office or political affiliation.

However, I also believe that Barack Obama has done more to cause a decline in respect for the POTUS than any other POTUS except Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon because of his weak stand on patriotism and pride in America.

Anonymous said...

How can a lake that is 10 ft. low remain 10 ft. low if 2 ft. is added to it? Maybe you should have gotten your education at Selwyn.

RPM said...

Was Brewer scolding him about all the headless bodies that have popped up in the desert since she's been in office?

Can somebody remind me how many she's found so far?

wordkyle said...

958 - The reports are that Obama got off the plane with a chip on his shoulder. Does all of your criticism also apply to him? Should she have to stand there and take rude behavior from him? Gov. Brewer is not Obama's subordinate, nor -- with how his administration has treated her state -- is he her friend. Bottom line: Tit for tat.

"Do those groups have more respect for politicians -- or for Obama, for that matter -- than those who declare a party affiliation?"
No, they have more intelligence. It is a lack of intelligence to show that kind of disrespect for any president. you should know this seein' as how you try to project intelligence.

Anonymous said...

10:58...i have to disagree with your perspective. it isn't rude to point your figer @ someone. Poke them in the chest with said finger, yeah, that's rude, and in somme circles it will get you punched, but pointing almost screasm "i'm really pissed and want to poke you in the chest with my finger, but i'm showing you some degree of respect." And any respect Obama gets is going to come from the office he holds, not to him as an individual.

WK called Jan Brewer a tit and Obama a tat!

Obama met with Brewer at the white house a couple of years ago. in her book she says he treated her badly. She handed him an invitation for a meeting. He simply asked if she was going to misrepresent that meeting as she had done in her book about the white house meeting.
I think her finger pointing looked like a gun and the secret service should have shot her on the spot.

from usa today
“The governor handed the President a letter and said she was inviting him to meet with her. The President said he’d be glad to meet with her again, but did note that after their last meeting, a cordial discussion in the Oval Office, the governor inaccurately described the meeting in her book. The President looks forward to continuing taking steps to help Arizona’s economy grow.”

Anonymous said...

11:24, When you quote USA today in saying that Obammy wants to help Arizona's economy grow, are you referring to the funeral home economy? By allowing ATF to smuggle guns into Mexico for the drug cartels that use them to murder American citizens, border patrol agents and their own ATF agents?

Anonymous said...

11:24 thanks for trying to bring some detail and civility to the Az meeting. Sure sounds counter to much blather on this blog.

Regarding salad with every meal...

I would suggest Mrs. LL is referring to the benefits of additional roughage in your diet to help keep that old man colon of yours clean and functioning properly. You know you've shown concern on that issue in the past.(IE, remember the cleansing episode?)

It's either that, or she is concerned with how the salad is being tossed.

1044 - Several points I'd love for you to elaborate on. How does having no party affiliation prove intelligence? What is the connection between intelligence and showing disrespect for the President? And last but not least, what leads you to believe that I'm trying to "project intelligence?"

I was referring to moderates and independents having the intelligence to realize that Brewer's action was disrespectful. Contrast that with folks that say "Obammy" and "nigger" who thought her action was just fine. If you think that folks on here don't know you TRY to project intelligence you are living in a fool's paradise.

9:23 Interesting. I too new Jack Koslow but only because I worked for a company doing busines with his company. He came in the office a month or so after the crime acting no different. He was not a personable type guy. I heard he never talked to Kristi after she was sentenced. She was adopted..not his real daughter and I doubt she ever received the nurturing kind of love from him. Sad.
