Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • The "firebombing" of the front door of state legislator Wendy Davis' office is really disturbing. The Democrat is despised -- really despised -- by Republicans. So much so that Sen. Jane Nelson, my longtime nemesis, said in February that defeating Davis is "most critical race in the whole state."
  • But wouldn't it be shocking to learn that Davis set the whole fire up just for publicity? (I'm not implying that happened. I'm just saying it would be shocking.) Edit: Arrest made. News conference at 10:00 a.m. Double Edit: It was a homeless guy.
  • I'll boycott any product or service that has a commercial which depicts adults screaming in it. Carnival Cruises, I'm looking at you.
  • Not many reports of motorcycle deaths this year despite the good weather.
  • Mitt Romney won Illinois last night after "extremely low voter turnout."  Kind of hard to get excited about that man, isn't it?
  • Looking at the level of Lake Bridgeport, there was a quick 2.5 feet rise around March 12 which is more than this last rain caused (so far.) I'm may be losing my mind, because I don't even remember a huge storm around that time. 
  • If you can't stand C.J. Wilson, click here.
  • OK, I take it back. The Trayvon Martin case is getting a lot of publicity.
  • After announcing the $96 million Denver Bronco Peyton Manning at a press conference yesterday, a reporter asked him about his neck. "I'm not where I want to be. I want to be where I was before I was injured.," Peyton said. Think that caused Bronco officials and ownership to have Failed Smile? (To be fair, I think he has to pass a physical every year as part of the five year contract.)
  • Ferris Bueller turns 50 today. (And dare I say this about the movie: Overrated.)
  • The Family Cat curled up in my lap yesterday for a good 10 minutes. We might go to counseling to re-evaluate our relationship. 
  • A 21 year old college student from Dallas was stabbed and beaten by a crowd during Spring Break. Channel 5 has posted a graphic video of the end of the beating which has surfaced. People are a stone's throw away from being animals sometimes. 




"Mitt, of all people, I know you are full of it."

Not many reports of motorcycle deaths this year despite the good weather.

What kind of observation is that?

wordkyle said...

Please clarify for me: Is expressing a sentiment such as "Defeating [Candidate X] is the most critical race in the whole state" an indication of despising Candidate X?

Look closely, I knew there had to be Messkins and Niggers involved. This WILL NOT make national headlines...

I'm with Bacon today--today's RTG looks like Balki with a boob job.

And more of wordkyle's lame protestations of innocence. Davis is despised, because she stood up to the Republicans. She's the only one who effectively did, in fact. Everyone who knows anything about current Texas politics knows this. That may explain why wordkyle wouldn't, but more often than not he has shown that dishonesty, not ignorance, is his main problem.

Yep, animals and most of the people in the crowd were Mexicans! I think he must have suffered the lung injury first and was unable to get away. Shocking that there were so many people watching and doing nothing to stop it. Very dangerous place for anyone to be, especially teens.

Wordpile, it is a repub thing! Remember Mitch McConnel saying after O was elected, his party's #1 priority was making O a one term president.......not dealilng with the financial crisis at the time, the two wars going on, jobs,....

and give Mitch credit he pretty much has obstructed everyting but tax breaks for oil and the rich.

I like a man of his word.

Davis is despised because she is very smart, attractive and not the stereotype that Republicans prefer of Dems in Texas.

They are now reporting that someone was arrested last night for firebombing Davis' office, but the thought that this was staged did cross my mind last night.

When she spoke, she did not waste much time before bringing up Gabby Giffords and painting herself as a huge target.

It rained for nearly 24 hours straight from around 11am on the 10th until around 10am on the 11th. That would be the rain you don't remember.

Re: College student being beaten by crowd of Mexicans. The border has moved off of the Rio Grande. I need advise on how to get my assets out of here and over to Australia. Mexicans can't swim that far and if they could the sharks in the Great Barrier Reef would eat them before they could get ashore. I hope that my grandchildren will speak English.

My ancestors would swallow diamonds prior to going through the checkpoints when they migrated. Hum? Do they show up in scans?

A misguided Wendy Davis supporter could have paid a homeless bum to squirt lighter fluid on Davis' office door and set it on fire.

I don't think Davis or her staff is dumb enough to try something like that.

Repeating "Davis is despised because (blah, blah, blah)" fails to clarify how you arrived at the conclusion that she is "despised" in the first place. It shouldn't be very difficult to explain why that particular word was used.

It's kind of hard to get excited about a man that is a Harvard Law School graduate, who signed into law mandated health care, who is for cap and trade, and that believes in global warming. I'm not talking about Obammy, I'm talking about Mitt. When it all boils down, there is no difference in the two. Sad times my friends.

Pretty sure he was referencing the story of the Dallas college kid... Just sayin

I think the family cat is responsible for Senator Davis' office firebombing. I think you have a Republican cat from district 10 as a sleeper cell in your home.

Wordkyle, she was hated in Austin for the filibuster. Republicans there hate her because she stands up for the middle class and they all want in her panties. She makes Nelson look less attractive than Senator Ogden.

The "firebombing" of the front door of state legislator Wendy Davis' office is really disturbing. The Democrat is despised -- really despised -- by Republicans.


Turns out it was some filthy welfare/black democrat wanting his "Obama Bucks". Not surprised, filthy people.

All politics aside, Wendy Davis is uglier than a mud fence. She is a spindly woman with a gotch-eye. She may be smart and tough, but pretty she ain't!!

In the 4 days of rain around March 11, I got 2.5", most got more.

"The Democrat is despised -- really despised -- by Republicans."
The central figures in both parties count on us to think in these terms. We've got to get off of the "party loyalty" bandwagon. It maintains the status quo, which is taking us down the path to destruction. A more accurate way to characterize your thought is that those who are producers despise the idea that the solution for society's inequities is for the producers to be indentured servants for those who don't wish to produce. That is a weak, unimaginative, ineffective, and immoral solution. Another one: Those who believe that abortion is ending a life despise the idea that ending that life is a right held by one individual, no matter if that individual is the life's biologic mother.

I am glad Eric Holder was in town so he can help prosicute the suspect in the fire bombing as a hate crime....oh wait, davis is WHITE, nevermind

wordkyle said...

Again with the use of the word despise (with a hate thrown in) and no explanation of why you use that word. Just as with racist and racism, you toss them around indiscriminately, without any real justification or thought. You cheapen the actual meaning of such words by using them for amateurish political theater.

6:32, let me answer my own observation about Lake Bridgeport. It is not rising as quickly as it did following the prior heavy rain because of the shape of the basin that holds the water. The land area (and cubic feet) that is covered/filled with water increases sharply as the water elevation increases. This is my guess rather than the possibility of water being released as fast as it comes in. With flooding downstream, I do not think those people living there would appreciate that.
