Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • If you were eastbound on 114 at the Texas Motor Speedway you had a headache this morning. An overturned tanker truck had you rerouted south on I-35. Beating. 
  • The heck with Yu, the Rangers fifth starter, Neftali Feliz, was fantastic last night. Of all the pitchers, I figured he had the most potential for a meltdown. 
  • I'm kind of surprised the University of Arkansas fired its head coach over his "inappropriate relationship" and/or "inappropriate hire" with an engaged 25 year old.  But if you followed the story, you'll laugh at this picture of him leaving town. 
  • Mark Cuban at least thinks he's always the smartest man in the room. Lamar Odom (who like his wife is being paid for doing nothing) proves he's not. 
  • Odd prediction for former WBAP host Mark Davis: I bet he gets in the religion business.  Over the last couple of years, he's talked about his faith more and more. And, oddly, he and Glenn Beck have been spending more and more time with ex-televangelist James Robison. 
  • Is Fredrick's Of Hollywood still around?
  • I hope the 17 Wise County volunteer fire departments who will each receive an equal share of the
    $196,374.99 recently raised at a fundraiser have a good checks and balances accounting system. 
  • A owner of an Arlington  strip club puts out a hit on the Mayor of Arlington and a lawyer and it becomes a federal crime? What happened to the could old days when murder-for-hire was always in good ol' state courts?
  • If you could go to Vegas and bet on Romney or Obama to win the November election, would you really put any significant money on Romney? 
  • I was able to impress the Family Unit last night by being able to name the new Justin Bieber song at the dinner table last night. And by "impress", I mean "horrify." 
  • A van carrying 19 illegal immigrants crashed last night in South Texas killing nine of them.  
  • In 1987, eighteen illegal immigrants suffocated to death in a Texas railroad boxcar as they were being smuggled into Texas. That prompted KLIF's David Gold to say they "got what they deserved" which got him reprimanded but not fired. I would hope he would be fired in 2012.
  • The Trayvon Martin case turned bizarre yesterday when the former attorneys of shooter George Zimmerman went all Gloria Allred on us and had a press conference they had no business of giving. But they did provide a couple of shockers: They don't know where Zimmerman is, he had met with the special prosecutor against their advice, and he had met with Sean Hannity as well. 
  • The Messenger will have a feature this weekend on Thomas Aaberg, Wise County attorney who advises the Commissioners' Court, who will run the Boston Marathon on Monday.
  • Edit: On the Liberally Lean Pick 'Em. Winners 1-4 have been identified and chosen their prize. I'll get to #5 and #6 today. I used the Yahoo! tie breaker system of "closest score" for the final game.

Read the story again.. It was a tandem box truck and a gravel truck, with fuel and gravel on the road. No mention of a tanker truck in the story. and I went by at 5:45 with no major back up, but did had to detour to 170...

And by "impress", I mean "horrify."
For most of the rest of us (guys), I believe the correct word would be "disappoint".


"Hey! It was just conspiracy to assassinate an elected official. You don't have to make a federal case out of it!"
That guy needs to be put on trial for no other reason than trying to outsource contract killings that should have gone to good old 'merican hitmen...oh, and looking like a pervy strip club owner! I have a feeling he's the one who'll be doing the dancing in the bighouse

Usually, powerful married men from Arkansas who cheat on their wives and lie about it get to keep their jobs.

And this guy didn't even commit perjury, either!

The odds on Romney winning at this point don't matter -- the odds will be much better closer to the election. He (and Republican supporters) had to focus on the primaries. Now he (and they) get to focus on Obama. With Obamacare, the Democrat Stimulus/Slush fund package, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, the economy, etc., Obama is a ripe target. Besides his record, simply pointing out his ever-changing explanations is a winning strategy. Example:
Obama, 2008: "Let's spread the wealth around."
Obama, 2012: Taxing the rich is not a "grand scheme to redistribute wealth from one group to another." (He also added, "This is not some socialist dream.")

Yeah, given the problems with the current occupant of the White House, in the coming months there will be a lot of people putting their money on Romney.

I don't feel one bit sorry for somebody that dies while committing a crime. Illegal or not. Just like I don't feel sorry for that 14 year old kid that was shot and killed after breaking in to somebody's house. In sense, they did get what they deserved. The part about them being illegal doesn't matter, the part about them committing a crime does.

Yeah, Lamar reminds one of that scumbag illegal alien gangsta thug Obama. Typical lazy nigger.

Freedom of speech alive and well in the USA, as long as you don't say anything that remotely offends a small group.

Well, if November 2010 is any indication, you should bet the farm on Romney.

No more Oprah.....No more ACORN..... No more OBAMA!!!

The country has had enough of the racist nigger and his insane queer posse/administration.

Nine illegal immigrants died in a crash...well Wise County Animal shelter had to kill 15 dogs and puppies 2 weeks ago and are full again. Hell, we can't take care of our pets in this country..we don't need any more people coming into this state. Yes, I am pissed at people who abandon their dogs and do not see to it they are not reproducing more puppies to be abused...hard to deal with the truth.

10:51, I sure would deserve it. Just like if I drink and drive wreck and die, I deserve it. Have an accident while speeding, I deserve it. Have a minor accident and die due to not wearing a seat belt, I deserve it. Laws are put in place for a reason, to help protect yourself and others. I'm not saying that I don't break laws at times, but if I die while breaking one, I deserved it.

Yeah let's give Rhome fd a big check why do they need money they get everything they need from city of Grapevine! Maybe just maybe they will buy a helicopter to go with their swift water boat and technical rescue trailer it would also be used to help Tom in pursuits! Don't forget to give them a handout this weekend as they stand on every corner in rhome trying to get donations from race fans headed to track!

Anonymous said...

How dumb can Oblamo be to make an example of Warren Buffet on his new found scam called "Buffet Rule" when Buffet is being pursued by the IRS for back taxes of a billion? Somebody needs to thump that big eared boy on the forehead and see if anybody is home.

Oh, and Oblamo’s poor flock of followers. You people really need some serious help. You cannot be as stupid as you appear. How can you believe what rolls off that Oblamo slithering tongue? He’s got you people so fooled with those Kool-Aid enticing speeches you’re zombies without a clue of the truth in life. Don’t you know a scam when you see or hear it? Who are your parents? Didn’t they teach you anything? If your parents didn't why didn't you move past that "I can't" or "everybody owes me" attitude?

It is flat wrong to stand in the middle of an intersection "expecting" a hand out all the while putting pressure on people to give.

So? 2:27 It's still begging and putting pressure on people to give. People looking for a handout should not be in areas such as in front of stores, in the roadways, or anywhere for that matter.

If you want a handout, do a fundraiser.

I doubt Rhome raises any money for MD in their boot drive, but I'm sure some money has been diverted to use for legal fees for a former member who was indicted for theft. They are good folks and need money. More and Godfray will help move Rhome forward with a new firehouse instead of the ones now who are obsessed with lawn care and old cars. Ricky Vaughn will also be an asset.
