Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Motorcycle death in Dallas last night.
  • And there was a big motorcycle crash in North Dallas this morning that shut down traffic. I don't know if it gave rise to a fatality.
  • I think the hearing (which won't change anything) going on in Fort Worth  reviewing the legal representation of a death row defendant are the same lawyers who represented Stephen York here in Wise County.
  • The first link in a Google search for York turns up this amateur piece on the tragedy. Who is that guy? Definitely from Bridgeport.
  • The lady who was severely injured last weekend when she was the passenger of the Chico man who crashed in downtown Fort Worth was the mother of the child who died last December in Boyd - - a death that police originally suspected, but later discounted, was the result of abuse.  However, the lady was in the Wise County jail on a misdemeanor drug charge at the time of the child's death. She was released to attend the funeral.
  • The Parker County Torture Guy received a life sentence yesterday. Everyone saw that coming. The victim, who is really country, was very upbeat after the trial as she spoke to reporters. You normally don't see that.
  • The Star-Telegram is cutting its work force again.
  • We slept with the windows open last night. Apparently The Family Cat considered that to be an invitation of an all night party of violently running from window to window to see if another animal is outside. 
  • News this morning that Fort Worth will purchase a device for police that will allow the "tracking of cell phones."  But no one seems to know how it works. 
  • Breaking: Seven marines killed in . . . Arizona. (Helicopter crash.)
  • Whomever was in charge of the crowd at the Republican debate last night must have been on the Mitt Romney payroll.
  • Rick Santorum is one strange guy. I hope he's the GOP nominee because that would be the most entertaining matchup in the Fall.
  • Mrs. LL took Defensive Driving yesterday. As she left after finishing the course, I texted her to "be careful." But I guess I didn't need to tell her that.
  • She learned two things: (1) it's illegal to drive with flip flops on [is it?], and (2) the word "comedy" in "Comedy Club Defensive Driving" is loosely used. 
  • I could have sworn I saw an ABC News report last night about the lady below where she was shown in the middle of a residential area and remarking how the incoming bombs were landing indiscriminately around her with no sense of a target.

Any candidate for President who personally does not believe in contraceptives is so out of the mainstream, cannot be elected! Why? Because Independents decide who will occupy the White House, not right wing Christian conservatives. His judgement on how "main stream Protestants are no longer Chrisitan" (abortion issue?) will not help him any in a general election. If we want Obama in office another 4 years, vote for this guy! And he just looks weird!!!!

Cellphone tracking is just like any other form of surveillance. It requires a search warrant. Not really a concern unless you're doing something illegal

Why would anybody even drive with flipflops on? It's probably safer to drive barefoot

Maybe it's just the Capt. Morgan talking, but an eyepatch - especially in that configuration - is kinda hot.
But I'm a little surprised that she's questioning the accuracy of a group that would bomb a residential area. They probably never got any target practice picking off womp rats in their T-16s back home

The Republican talking heads all say they want someone more conservative than Romney, but all of the options that they come up with are twice as conservative but 10 times as wacky.

It is hard for me to believe that these people do not understand that they are alienating middle america with their Old Testament view of the world.

Kingfish is some scary shiate. Hope no one ever just happens to be driving by the scene of a crime. Coppers will see your cell activity and next thing you know 25 years later you are being released from prison, local DA is apologizing for putting away and innocent man.

I think the story says the Fort Worth police will track cellphones without a search warrant and use the results as probable cause.

The Star-Telegram will soon be out of business. Great news for the citizens of Fort Worth. What was once a great newspaper, has become nothing more than a liberal propaganda sheet. The fat bisexual hamburger expert Bud Kennedy, and the black racist draft dodging Bob Ray Sanders along with the liberal canadian, Gary Wortel's leadership destroyed this newspaper with their insane liberal thoughts and actions. I say good riddance.

Take your blinders off! That whole inch/mile equation goes for criminals as well. Electronic whiz-bang items are readily available for use by crooks, and the cops have to keep up with the technology. If you want to leave law enforcement in the 20th century while crime marches on, you're either paranoid or doing something you shouldn't oughtta

I don't even know what an asshat is, but I know it's an insult that was uncalled for. Am I the ass...the hat? Who's wearing what here?

913 - The American public elected Obama, a man who voted for infanticide. A Republican's opinion on contraceptives, however radical, ought not be further outside the mainstream than that.

Word:

Putting a nasty label on it does not change the fact that (right or wrong) it is the mainstream. Instead of picking single issues and pointing fingers, why don't the Republicans propose a (workable) policy that covers all aspects of health care and welfare as it relates to reproduction?

Look, I am all for law enforcement, but give the police a new toy and I can guarantee they will use it to violate someone's privacy. Bad guys are generally stupid, they will get themselves caught eventually. The really smart one's will not get caught by the kingfisher or asstapper 2000. It will most likely be used to spy on political adversaries, or anyone who speaks out against law enforcement. The fact that we are turning a blind eye to this type of stuff is very scary.

I really don't understand the republican stance on abortion/birth control, they are just aborting future libs anyway. If you don't want to abort them, jump on the contraceptive wagon and prevent future libs that way. Either way is a winner in my book.

You are so right Barry, Santoram the strange guy, verses Obama, the strangest of the animal kingdom...quite a contest.

wordkyle said...

135 - Obama voted to allow the killing of an infant outside the womb. It's not a nasty "label," it's a nasty practice. You are stretching waaaay outside if you think that is "mainstream." Most people are 1) unaware of the practice; and 2) unaware that Obama supports it.

I addressed this one issue because it's what's been in the headlines for two weeks. A commenter opined that a Republican's philosophy on contraceptives eliminated him as a viable candidate. I pointed out Obama's position on a particular method of population control. (It can't be called "birth control" because the babies Obama approved killing would have already been born.)

P.S. Here's info on the health care plan Republicans proposed. There were many better options available besides the Obamacare boondoggle.

Wordkyle is smart enough to know Rick Santorium will be "beat up" on his views on birth control by the left taking the attention off high gas prices and Obamacare! Just like CNN did last night to the candidate now in the lead. I would bet labor unions are sending their people in to vote in the Republican primary for this social conservative. Independents win elections and this guy can't win!

Wordy, as usual, you speak in half-truths. You chose the "label" and it is a nasty label that does not reflect reality.

You said, "Obama voted to allow the killing of an infant outside the womb." This is a lie. The practice was already illegal in Illinois and had been since 1975. The Medical Society of Illinois opposed the bill on the basis of an already existing law dating from 1975.

Furthermore, the bill was, in several instances, packaged with other provisions that went well beyond the specific practice that you describe.

You wrote that he, "voted for infanticide"...another disingenuous lie.

The Bill would have redefined what a "born-alive infant" was under Illinois law. Such a change could have led to either a ruling by a Federal Court that the law was unconstitutional (a complete waste of time & money) or a ruling by the US Supreme Court overruling Roe v. Wade (not something Obama or most of the country wants). Even if you disagree with his decision, you have chosen to characterize it as he voted to kill children, which is a complete distortion of the truth.

Typical Wordkyle.

wordkyle said...

I keep seeing people expressing the thought "Conservatives can't win" yet Democrats, including Obama, campaign as much more conservative than they are or than they intend to govern. Seems like conservative principles appeal to the most voters.

wordkyle said...

327 - On three separate occasions, Obama made decisions on legislation that would provide care for children born alive during induced abortion. He voted "against" once, "present" once, and as chairman of a committee, blocked the third one from coming to the floor at all. Your implication, of course, is that because the practice was illegal, it didn't happen. The problem there is that hospitals modified their policies when attention was put on the practice in 1999, twenty-four years after you claim it was made "illegal."

The rest of your argument boils down to "Obama took the position he did for political reasons." I'll agree with that. Obama's position on this issue is magnitudes more extreme than any Republican stance on contraceptives.

Least we forget. In 1997 Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB230, a bill designed to prevent the following procedure:

The doctor grabs the baby’s leg with forceps. The baby’s leg is pulled into the birth canal. The physician then delivers the baby except for the head. He then jambs scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are opened to enlarge the hole, then removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

Wordkyle a President Santorium, who opposes birth control for moral reasons, could issue by Executive order all sorts of restrictions for contraceptives. The idea anyone running for office would be so "back in the dark ages" in his views on birth control should be a woman forced to bear 20 kids!!! Since we don't have enough food and water to support the population growth now, the last person we need in office is a male who thinks women shouldn't have sex or should "go forth and multiply"!!!! Sorry, women still have the right to vote and when the liberal press gets through with this nut, no way will he get elected!!!!
