Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • One thing I love is my ability to fall asleep the moment my head hits the pillow. Not last night. I mean not right now. I'm writing this sentence at 3:32 in the morning as I suffer from the most bizarre case of insomnia in my life. If you have this problem, you have my deepest sympathies. I hate this.
  • I'm loopy, though. No comments from the spelling and grammar police. 
  • I think I'm in love with Paula Faris who I had never heard of until I watched ABC's World News Now which is on right now.
  • I'm still stunned by the PRISM news. I always thought the Patriot Act controversy was more fluff than substance, but now I feel like I'm living in a science fiction movie.
  • I blame Bush. I blame Obama. But more than anything I feel like the government is a runaway freight change that no one is in charge of.
  • And for the "well, if you have nothing to hide" crowd, you are beyond naive. I can't begin to wrap my brain around that mentality. And Sen. Lindsey Graham falls into that crowd. He had that attitude yesterday when the spying news was limited to Verison phone records. Watch him backtrack today (but he might be too dumb to even do that). 
  • This will be a huge scandal because all sides will jump on it. The Left loves the Fourth Amendment and is stunned by this invasion of privacy. The Right hates Obama and he's on record as saying this wasn't going on. It's the Perfect Political Storm. 
  • I read on Twitter that the speech of the valedictorian of Joshua High School had his mic turned off last night when he began to speak about God. I bet that is absolutely not true.
  • I just ate microwaved Beefaroni. 
  • Jim Adler advertises at 4:00 in the morning. 
  • The movie The Internship looks awful. 
  • The Dallas DA's Office is trying to get a judge to jack Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent's bond for allegedly testing positive for marijuana. The Motion is here. There's no question it was written with the media in mind because there's no way they go to that much effort every time they make such a request in other cases.
  • And one huge development in Brent's case that no one is talking about: His blood results may be inadmissible due to the recent Supreme Court case that threw out such blood results when police failed to get a search warrant (at least under the facts before them.) They didn't get a warrant in Brent's case, and if those results are thrown out it could cripple that case.  Texas prosecutors are now basically taking the position to "always get a warrant" just to be safe.
  • Those last two bullet points were written yesterday afternoon. I'm not that lucid now.
