Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Gov. Perry's assertion yesterday that the multi-billion dollar Rainy Day Fund be returned to the taxpayers is nothing but smoke.
  • "Five people, including two men that investigators believe to be pimps, were arrested on charges stemming from a prostitution sting in Weatherford late Friday and early Saturday. Law enforcment [sic] officers with the Weatherford-Parker County Special Crimes Unit targeted online ads on Backpage.com and FWWeekly.com advertising services." Are there too many cops in this state?
  • Mrs. LL has decided that The Family Pup needs to have puppies, and a "date" was set up with another Yorkie yesterday. I'm sooooooo keeping out of this and any conversation that goes with it. 
  • Jason London, who I'm not sure I've seen since Dazed and Confused, got arrested and has one of the craziest book in photos ever
  • It was a crazy day in the metroplex yesterday: (1) A huge line of storms with hail, (2) a man shoots his co-worker to death in Grand Prairie, (3) a Fort Worth cop was shot and is in critical condition, (4) T. Boone Pickens grandson dies, (5) cops were called to a conveniences store at I-30 and Watson in Arlington last night to find three people shot, two of them "critically" and (6) the teacher turns herself in for the hit and run death of child. Whew.
  • And if Pickens, a TCU student died from a drug overdose as NBC5 is speculating about, then TCU's drug reputation is getting bad.
  • Has Modern Family gone horribly downhill this season?
  • Amazon announced today that it is building a 1.1 million shipping center in Haslet.
  • I'm stunned that the female trooper involved in the caught-on-tape intrusive searching of two women a month or so ago was fired.  DPS normally stands by their own but they sacrificed that woman.
  • Thanks for all the travel tips from Monday. (But pricing travel online is enough to take the fun out of a vacation.)

Puppy pimpin'...sweet!

But did you hear the story about Jason London before the mugshot? On the ride to the station? Might explain some of the reason for that look on his face

Last week's episode of Modern Family - with the Godfather theme - was very funny!

You need the appropriate number of cops to enforce all the laws we have. Take it up with the lawmakers!
Hey, don't you make a living defending folks who get busted by all those cops?

If the Guv's multi-billion dollar offer is just smoke, well...you can blow that kind of smoke up my keister any time!
That last part did not sound right. at. all.

Wow, I thought the lady was following direct orders...why did only her head roll? Don't think this is the end. Would they have fired her if she refused to do the search? What about the freaking male trooper who requested the search? Guess we have to assume the lady cop just plain did it wrong..we know she used the same gloves..now that is nasty! That makes sense to me, if so.

I can't see the wisps coming from Perry because of the Beijing-like smog coming from Obama and other Democrats. But it's understandable that the Liberal viewpoint would be anger at the thought of government funds actually returning to those who provided the funds in the first place. An interesting quote from Ken Blackwell that I read yesterday: "We've become a culture where earning money doesn't entitle you to it, but wanting it does. That is the essence of redistribution."

1.1 million shipping center

Is that dollars or square feet?

Classic wordturd. Ignore how bad republicans are, because his politics says Democrats are worse. Just call a spade a spade wordy, you did it when deciding not to vote for a black man.

Oops, there's that race card again.

wordkyle said...

944 - You are correct, I did not vote for a black man. You're wrong in implying that I didn't vote for him because he's black.

And Democrats -- at least as far as their leadership and party platform go -- are worse. They embrace the Liberal agenda, which ignores fiscal reality, makes America more vulnerable to its enemies, and have as their goal to destroy the self respect, independence, perseverance and aspirations of as many Americans as possible.

@9:44 Classic WK hater. Weak, real weak. You do not address a single point he made, declare that his disagreement with Obama's Liberal policies MUST be due to racism. Do you lash out at him because he nails you right between the eyes, or what is it?

I would say spend it on education, but in this day and age with cscope I think a check sent to all taxpayers would be better. Perry is doing nothing but chest beating though.

Definitely too many cops.

Over the years DPS has changed once they were the bar of standards, fair, honest and true defenders of the people over the criminal elements. Now they stop you for make believe pot aroma, your "high beams" are on or my personal best your Corvette doesn’t have a front license plate.

Really ….. A 50 year old white guy on a Sunday drive in a Convertible Corvette looks like he could be some diabolical crime lord? If he asked me I could have pointed them out and I am not even a detective.

Now they are nowhere near the substandard level of our Rhome police but I do wish they could get back to finding criminals and real druggies and not “Shaking Down” average hard working tax payers on 287 or 114. But of course these types of people have jobs and will pay the fines; court cost and etc … Can’t get blood from a rock they say.

Maybe they could take a cue from our Sherriff’s Department and do some real police work.

please do not breed the Yorkie. there are too many dogs and cats that already need homes. And I'll bet I could find a place to rescue a Yorkie in your area. Quickly.

be part of the solution, not contribute to the problem.

Rhome Police are nothing but the fall guy for the 1 or 2 nuts on their City Council. They are happy to point them out.

Has Modern Family gone horribly downhill this season?

No. That show has always been lousy. It just took this long to get over the peer pressure to say it's funny.

12:45 - I think you get it. There's no money in honest cop work, but there's a ton of cash just passin' thru on 287 & 114 every day.

I've been hearing stories of failed drug tests, arrests, & drug use at Chico HS the past few weeks involving athletes. Apparently a HS boy was found half-clothed and out of his mind in a bar ditch by the school during school hours on Monday. Also, stories that the higher ups are trying to sweep it under the rug. Things are getting ready to get crazy in Chico ISD in the coming days.

Wordkyle paints with too broad a brush. I am a liberal Democrat who is fiscally conservative.....ie I want money well spent.

What drives me nuts is the hypocrisy. The 1%er are takers ever bit as much as the 47% Mr Romney offered his base as many gifts as did Obama.

Wordkyle wants small government but he would allow it in my bedroom and medicine cabinet.

I suspect WK uses the tax code written by and for him to enrich himself while badmouthing those below him who don't have the means to get to the Caymans.

That surplus was built by an oil fed economy not by prudence or frugality. Just the opposite....that degrading of health care and education in Texas will eventually come back to haunt us.

Not that poor Texas education doesn't reveal itself on this blog.

Please do not breed more puppies..even yorkies are pts sometimes if the shelter is over capacity. Shame on Mrs. LL for doing this.

Hey it's Barry's dog if he wants to breed it let him. Just make sure we don't see it on this blog with the kids able to see it.

I'm impressed, Barry! You didn't imply, for once, that the officer was wrong to shoot the bad guy!

Oh, wait-- to earn such implied praise, a cop had to be shot 3 times, seriously wounded.

443 - Your depiction of me will be laughable to the few readers who know me personally. If you want to impress me with your "reasonableness," rebel against your party, elect new leadership and promote an agenda that doesn't destroy America.

America was destroyed? What are we now, Canada? And what does Barry breeding a dog have to do with it?

Zetaboy said...

"Did you find the dog, or did the dog find you?" Or something similar from Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009)

Some of my dogs I believe have soles, or have had a sole. Sole is a continuum and does not always follow family lines, or even that of earthly creatures.

He reminds me of so and so! He's just like him! He does this and that, he's just not anydog!

In nature, dogs breed for survival, which includes genetic diversity. Not so much so for domestic dogs.

Dog will find you.

Real people watch Modern Family?

I thought that sitcom ratings were statistical anomalies. Or some sort of computer glitch.

I don't think I know anyone who has watched a sitcom in the last 10 years...
