The Campaign For DA

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Edit. Breaking: House Speaker Boehner will finally cave and resign at the end of October. 
  • Bridgeport vs. Decatur will be replayed on TXA 21 at 10:30 tonight.
  • The Update has a first entry about a horrible wreck that killed a man from Runaway Bay and involved a man from Boyd. It looks like both are very well liked in the county.
  • I don't think I've mentioned the Rangers in months, but what they have done is nothing short of amazing. I don't know if these stats are accurate, but on 8/26 they had a 4% chance to win the AL West. Today they stand at 89%.
  • For the guy who doesn't understand my reference of "pretty, pretty good", I suspect you wouldn't understand Curb Your Enthusiasm. 
  • Tomorrow, Saudi Arabia will behead and then crucify (yes, crucify a dead man) for taking part in the Arab Spring.  Where were most of the 9/11 hijackers from? Oh, yeah. Saudi Arabia. What was the name of that book from 2004? Oh, yeah. House of Bush, House of Saud.
  • We had an "Is the Aggie Band overrated" controversy break out in the comments section yesterday. Hey, I'm no Aggie fan, but it is the only band that has ever given me chills after hearing the first five seconds of their performance --- and they haven't even moved. 
  • I turned on NBC Nightly News last night and saw the live coverage of the Pope going down Fifth Avenue and then going into St. Patrick's Cathedral. I've been to New York twice and went into St. Patrick's both times. If I ever go again, I'll walk through those doors yet another time. Love that place. 
  • BagOfNothing mentioned Angry Birds this morning. One of the funniest moments of my life was being alone in the waiting area during an oil change and a little girl and her father came in. I was playing some golf game on my phone and she plopped down beside me and, in the loudest of voices and, with her face within six inches of mine, asked, "WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING?" I told her golf. "MY DAD GOLFS!" she said (and the dad is in the room ignoring her.) She then blasted out with intense eye to eye contact, "DO YOU LIKE ANGRY BIRD! I LIKE ANGRY BIRDS! YOU WANT TO SEE ME PLAY ANGRY BIRDS?!" And then I spent the next five minutes watching this little girl play Angry Birds. 
  • Whenever you are on a jury and the judge tells you that you "are the sole judge of the credibility of the witnesses", take a look at the Good Morning America segment of the two high school football players who attacked a referee on the field and you will understand what that means.

I'm not Catholic and, while spiritual, eschew organized religion. But I've also been to NYC twice and visited St. Patrick's twice. There is something about that place. Even if you don't care about spirituality, the history and architecture alone is enough to capture one's imagination.

My friend, Les Beebe, will be missed terribly. He was truly a selfless and very caring man. Les loved God and people deeply, and if you ever met him you had no doubt about it. My heart hurts greatly for his family. Actually, two local families will forever be impacted as a result of this tragedy. Though the midst of great sadness weighs heavy this day, those of us that knew Les know where he is today for his was a life forever transformed. God bless you, Les Beebe and thank you for leaving a trail of love and truth as your legacy........

Hey Bu...

We need an update on the PVC softball netting gizmo contraption thingie.

The deceased man from the car wreck was one of the kindest men you might ever meet. The shirt on his back was sometimes threadbare, but he'd give it to you in a heartbeat if he thought you needed it more than he did. The world is a little less bright as a result of his loss.

He is worthless. He's gotten his guvment benefits and insider information; just go away. Take Nancy and that one eyed Reid with you

Skippy, When you are referring to Curb Your Enthusiasm, I take it you are referring to a TV show. I must be a lofo on pop culture since I quit watching TV over 8 years ago. But I'm glad to not know what the Kardashians or Jesse Simpson are wearing today.

Regarding Boehner's resignation, looks like the Republicans finally created a job.

B what about the Baylor Band's trouble song you like so well?

Anonymous said...

I cant believe you mentioned something about Muslims, Islam, and violence all in the same paragraph.

Anonymous said...

I think the Republican'ts should do the Speakership like the old Sportatorium tag team wrestling matches. As one speaker is going down after a particularly vicious debate, a new Speaker could tag in and leap over the ropes to reel in the unruly House membership. And then tag out again.
Worked for Chief Wahoo McDaniel and me.

The backstop was a complete and utter failure wasn't it?

Hey some days you are the bug and sometimes you are the windshield.

Drunk drivers are killers! This time one took an absolutely gentle and loving man, Les Beebe.

But Les would be the first to forgive that drunk driver.

Please do not drink and drive!!!

Why are Biden and Clinton speaking at a liberal weenies gay rights event? Don't the gays already have rights thanks to the Supreme Court?

A couple of comments about the Pope's visit:

1. REALLY! A guy who has never made a dollar in his life and/or personally given from his earnings to someone who's starving/homeless is lecturing the US, one of the most generous nations in the history of ever, on how the US needs to be generous to the poor. When Vatican City starts divesting some of its assets rather than merely distributing other people's money, I MIGHT give a spit about what the Pope says about caring for the poor.

2. If you watched the national/international news, during the Pope's visit, you'd believe that world peace had been achieved and the race for POTUS nomination had ended.

3. If having an old dude, who had done nothing more than won a popularity contest held by the officers of his private club, visit the US would result in a solid 3 days of no world/national news worth reporting, it would be in the world's best interest for that old dude to take up residency in some high-tone hotel in NYC.

One more thing, IF Pope Francis really believes the BS he spews about forgiveness, homosexuality and the poor and continues to refuse to use his "God given authority" and sign an edict implementing his beliefs then he is nothing short of evil. All the Pope need do to make those changes is to sign an edict.

Mzchief- bitter old woman much? I expect he has done much more to help the less fortunate in 1 day than you've done in your whole hateful life.

Really mzchief? All he asked was follow the beliefs this country was founded on.

Jeb Bush said the Pope isn't a scientist so he shouldn't talk about climate change. Well, the Pope has a degree in chemical engineering so yes he is a scientist. Also to mzchief he worked as a chemical engineer and donated his earnings to the church. He also rode public transportation every day. Part of that whole "vow of poverty" thing. So maybe do some research before spewing your hate.

The Pope -- He has performed a miracle!!
For the 1st time ever, I completely agree with Mzchief. I have never been so tired of hearing about & from this guy. I doubt that the media would cover Jesus Christ Himself the way they are covering the pope.

Well said mzchief. Things I am afraid to say in case the pope truly is as important to God as people seem to think he is.

MZchief you are one bitter hateful old hag.

To anonymous 7:28...

Thank you for addressing, though incorrectly, one of my bullet points regarding Pope Francis. He attended a secondary school for technical studies where he graduated with a chemical technician's diploma. A secondary school for technical studies is where students work toward a technical vocation from grades 11 and 12 allowing them to graduate with a technical diploma rather than a general diploma, from high school. Francis NEVER worked as an engineer, he worked in food laboratory, bar bouncer, janitor and briefly ran tests in a chemical lag. He used public transport due to the fact he was too poor to have a private vehicle. Nowhere in any of the literature, I've read regarding Pope Francis, does it say he donated his income to the poor.

To anonymous haters....

As for the rest of you mental midgets, who couldn't find fault with my assertions regarding Pope Francis, and could only attack me personally; YOU SUCK AT LIFE!
