Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Uh, oh. Just announced: Unemployment rose to 8.3%.
  • It would be unAmerican to be excited about that, right? 
  • Frank Caliendo is out. He won't be back in the Fox NFL pre-game show. The guy is always funny on the radio but a beating on that show (and I never understood why his character would make game predictions at the end of his bit.)
  • Josh Hamilton doesn't seem smart enough to be the theologian that he thinks he is.
  • Six Flags is shutting down the parachute ride and the Flashback. I couldn't picture the latter until I remembered I actually rode the thing 20 years ago. My oddest memory is that there were three teenage girls in front of us in line and they would address each other by talking into their own wrists Never figured that out.
  • I wonder if the Family Pup understands me when I tell her I want to switch lives with her?
  • North Texas gets to play the #1 team in the country, LSU, for their season opener.
  • A Vermont farmer, upset over his recent arrest for pot, took his huge tractor to the police station yesterday and decided to go all monster truck on a bunch of cop cars. Insane.
  • Heard on the radio this morning: I don't want to see gays kissing at Chick-fil-A. In fact, I don't want to see anyone kissing at Chick-fil-A.
  • Heard on the radio yesterday: Where will the  battleground be for immigration? Wendy's?
  • Great night last night when C.J. Wilson gets lit up by the Rangers and Michael Phelps beat Ryan Lochte. 
  • Another police shooting in Dallas last night (that's the 18th this year.)
  • After that Gabby gal won the overall competition in gymnastics, NBCs Bob Costas gave a thoughtful wrap up about how the color barrier had been broken. Then they cut to a commercial showing a monkey competing in gymnastics. You've got to see it.

Oh well. After reading this, I have told all the other lesbians not to bother showing up where Barry can see them kiss today.

Gabby winning the gold was a great Olympic moment. Too bad NBC had to spoil it with the racial thing.

Consilium ac prudentia said...

No one is excited about unemployment rising. Half the country is happy that the man responsible will be voted out in November.

As to the Gabby wins gold editorial followed by the monkey ad, it was in all likelyhood an honest error. Those animal promos have been running since these Olympics started and was probably already slated to run at that time. Some person running the show probably didn't even think about the race aspect. I didn't. But then again I think pointing out race was stupid to start with. She is a great gymnast who worked very hard and sacrificed a lot to be where she is. How about we celebrate that without tainting it with race?

You are in no position to judge, napoleon. You've never heard Josh Hamilton speak except in 10 second sound bites on TV.

I bet that your arguments before a jury are as misleading and simplistic as your blog writings are.

This is just an unfortunate "program content vs. previous media buy" example. The "monkey" media spot was purchased, even if by NBC, way prior to the content being written (Costas). It's too late to change the timing at that point. Already bought and paid for!

I'm sad that unemployment is up again......I'm even sadder that this country elected an imbecile with no business sense as president......someone who is just going to exacerbate the problem, rather than lessen it!

Unemployment may hurt Obama some now but when we get closer to the election he will bomb one of the mid east countries in an attempt to give him a boost. I believe that it will be sometime in late September or early October when he sends the planes aloft over you know which country I am talking about. This attack will be preceded by a lot of media coverage by ABC, CBS, CNN, etc. They will all support the attack with endless positive coverage addressing the justification.

On December 21 2012 we will all be bombed but it won't be covered by anyone.

wordkyle said...

The unemployment rate -- and even more specifically the labor force participation rate (2 million more Americans are unemployed but not counted as unemployed since July 2011) -- reflects the damage that Obama and the Democrat party have done to the economy. No one's happy about it, but that group needs to be held accountable.

- Look for some sort of provocation at the "Kiss Ins" today, e.g., blocking traffic, harassing customers, throwing feces (oh wait, that's monkeys at the zoo and Wall Street Occupiers.) The militants need a confrontation so they can make the news.

I never gathered that at any of his posts. Whether I agree with him or not, he is usually rather eloquent with his words and sounds educated. Besides, how do you gather vitriol from ANYONE's posts?? You cant really read emotion into these posts unless you use all caps and say flat out you hate something or someone for their thoughts.



Rage must be MzChief to think that way.

Yep Rage, so true, and if it were not for his use of what others say, the guy wouldn't have ANYTHING to post.

He is just SO boring.

Stand by for his usual response.

I wonder if you understand it when the Family Pup looks back at you thinking "No way, human dude! You guys bring me food and pick up 'the stuff'. Go barter with the Family Cat for one of its lives."

I think you have a fairly broad definition of the word "theologian". This is just a guy who needs all the help he can get struggling with a huge demon, and in the process attempting to help others with whatever problems they're facing


I think GWB probably had way more business experience as owner of a professional sports team - not to mention everything else he did - than Obama had in all his pre-presidential endeavors combined

The young black woman who won in the gymnastics competition at the Olympics is an AMERICAN star. Her race has nothing to do with anything except what some idiots on both sides seem to want to make of it.

The "Kiss In" scheduled today at Chick Fil A is disgusting. I don't care if a person is gay, just keep it to yourself, don't swap spits in front of me and do your thing in private like the rest of us do.

Gays want to exploit vulgarness.

That's all they're about is to brainwash everyone into accepting their vulgar behavior.

Uh, oh. Just announced: Unemployment rose to 8.3%. I'm so excited that millions are out of work and are losing their homes and way of life because of a Marxist that wants to destroy America as we knew it. In Obammy's own words bashing Bush, "It's unAmerican to keep borrowing money from China and running up the debt."

Have the Dallas police done gone batshit crazy? Thanks for keeping score for us Skippy. Victims good, cops bad. I agree with you and Obammy that the police acted stupidly. When is he going to fly in and have a beer summit and maybe play a round of golf?
