Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • What? There's no Update today? They're closed!! And you know what that makes me?:
  • (I thought that was a clever "hardest working man" joke until I realized how I've set myself up.) 
  • You know who is quiet? Sen. John Cornyn. You hardly ever hear from him pandering to the masses, but why should he? His current term ends in 2020. 
  • In the mist of Amidst the news coverage of authorities who were searching for a missing kayaker in the Trinity River in Fort Worth, this tidbit got very little coverage: Before he was found, they found a different body who remains unidentified.  We have just random bodies in the Trinity? I'm guessing that won't be part of the Rockin' The River at Panther Island promotional materials. 
  • Flipping around the morning shows this morning, I saw where Flo Rida was performing on Today and Lee Greenwood was on Fox and Friends. 
  • It's Bush then Trump then Huckabee at the top of the GOP polls. At this point, Trump will get to take part at the first debate on August 3rd.  Delicious.
  • You could have seen Ted Cruz at a book signing yesterday at . . . a Costco in Arlington. 
  • A Wylie woman fell to her death at the Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado. I wasn't familiar with that landmark but here's a series of pictures of it from Google Images under the category of "looking down".  I then remembered that I had seen it before from Real Sports on HBO where they had footage of base jumper Dwain Weston crashing into while "flying" in one of those crazy wingsuits. 
  • A tweet from Sheriff Joe yesterday: "Because of #SCOTUS ruling on #GayMarriage, decided to review policy on inmate marriages, examining options on marriage in my jails." OK, maybe we are nearing the end of times. 
  • We haven't seen a confrontation like Old White Religious Freedom Activists vs. Gay Rights Activists since West Side Story.

I visited the Royal Gorge a few years ago. Thankfully heights don't bother me but walking across the bridge which was swaying gently in the bridge while the boards I was walking on were bouncing up and down with each car was a bit unnerving. The view was worth it.

West Side Story? Really?

Really? "In the mist of news coverage" I think the word you are looking for is "amidst" As in "Amidst the news coverage"

Trump is correct about Mexicans:

Gorillas are in the mist; you're in the midst...although who can say for sure?

We have just random bodies in the Trinity?

Newsflash!: Tripartite river + large metro area with around 7 million flawed human beings = decent chance of an expired body in the water at any given time.

I flew over Royal Gorge last year. The place was devastated by a wildfire. The bridge had suffered serious damage and was closed to the public.

Scared to hear the truth Trump will speak?? People (not me) are so PC these days, they don't want to hear the truth.

Don't those folks protesting gay marriages have something better to do like wash their car or read a book? Other people's marriages should be the other's problem. It just shouldn't affect you in the least. (I just wonder how many protesters are working on their 2nd or 3rd religious marriage themselves).

Gorillas are in the mist. Liberal weenies are in a fog.

Skippy, When you perform in court, do you still wear skin tight leisure suits and have a sidekick named Apollo Creed?

I'm Hispanic. Came here as a immigrant (legally) to the greatest country in the world. I agree with Trump 100%. I love the fact that he hasn't backed down from his statement, everyone is saying he's a racist and such, but I noticed no one has stood up and said that he's wrong.

Back in the days of Benny Binion and the numerous clubs on Old Jacksboro Highway, the Trinity River bottoms were a favorite dumping grounds of folks who didn't honor their obligations to certain people.

the RTG is certainly flashy today. A lot of bling, a lot of blonde, and a lot of b**bs.

Why aren't they manning the Jade Helm invasion front lines? They want the U.S. Army to invade us and send innocent gun owners to Walmart re-education camps!!!

There is a HUGE difference between saying something racial and saying something racist. As much as I dislike Trump and would LOVE to be able to add one more fault to that dirtbag's character, Trump isn't a racist. What Trump said was racial not racist.

Anonymous said...

This is what Trump was talking about:

"Gunman who 'shot dead 32-year-old woman at random' on San Francisco pier was illegal Mexican immigrant who'd been deported FIVE times and walked away from drug bust just four months ago".

As she lay dying with her father by her side she was pleading "Dad help me".

Go ahead and call Trump a racist, I would love to have him for President.

We'll all be glad when summer is over and you go back to your junior high drama queen life. I don't know what you think you add to an otherwise pleasant discussion site, but it's considerably less than nothing at all.

Something for all the liberal weenies to think about. Trump or Clinton? If you put a nickel behind Hillary's ear, her teeth roll back. She got to where she was at in name only. No one can name one accomplishment of hers. She should be in prison along with her husband and Webster Hubbell's daughter.

BG, if you had View-Masters as a kid, you'd be an expert about Royal Gorge.

Since the law has decided same sex couples is okay, tell me that does not affect us all when the law decides it is okay for petophiles to have sex with children (their chosen lifestyle). Will that be okay? Hope I am dead when that happens.

8:03, As we progress everything that was not acceptable will become the norm. The value system of your parents and grandparents is dead.

"If marriage is not the union of a man and a woman, then why should it be limited to two people (or, for that matter, require two people)? Why can't it be one or three or five? What makes the number "two" so special if it doesn't refer to the union of a male and a female?"

I wasn't familiar with that landmark

Who are you and what do you do? Disappointing

HSO: the missing kayaker is white. The body found black or Mexican.
