Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts









  • Due to a dead battery on my laptop, we are having some Liberally Lean technical issues. 
  • Of all the places in the world to hide, the affluenza kid is found in a tourist resort In Mexico. Momma doesn't need to be arrested for harboring a fugitive, she needs to be arrested for being dumb. 
  • And he looks hammered 
  • I finally flew on Virgin Airlines. Greatest. Plane. Experience. Ever. 
  • I forgot to mention in connection with The Big Short and the mortgage crisis: It might be building  again right now. 
  • Commercials on The Ticket seem to focus on divorce, vodka, rehab and cars. 
  • From earlier @NBCDFW: LIVE: Wise Co. authorities work to rescue people trapped in a truck stuck in water in Rhome https://t.co/t2U3W7MiCo https://t.co/RSDueH8iSg
  • I don't know who country singer Craig Stricland is but he has gone missing and his frien was "found dead"
  • Writing this on an iPad is a beating. 
  • I'm in an undisclosed location but l'll just say Frank Underwood has walked these streets.

Apple makes $407,000 profit per American employee, per year. And has Chinese sweatshop labor build all their products. They employ batallions of lawyers and accountants to avoid US taxes at impressive levels. The fact that you own any Apple product is a crime against humanity.

I am a little worried what pool chlorine will do to those RTG bathing suits. I don't think they are colorfast.

The Affluenza Kid should have used L'Oreal Feria hair color. Instead, he obviously did a quick CVS bathroom job.

Rich white leftist like Barry created the mortgage crisis and the fools will do it again.

If I'm guessing correctly, you should try to get into Husk for a meal. Keyword here is try.

Yep, affluenza kid was kinda "cute" back in the day of his original troubles. But now--just looks like a punk and a thug. Since style over substance is the rule of the day, maybe he'll finally get what he deserved all along--this time.

Even if you only occasionally do substantial text input on a handheld device, you should consider one of these:

I got one for occasional text input on my iPhone, and I've been very happy with it. It's tiny for storage, which makes it cramped for typing. But it gets the job done.

I couldn't agree more with your assessment of Virgin Airlines. I fly Virgin whenever I can. They have a small airline feel with a lot of class.

Husk is good but Halls Chophouse is much better.

Two hundred years ago, uneducated people with absolutely no technology knew enough to take cover during approaching severe weather, or to not try to cross a raging stream, etc. Amazing how stupid we are.

Police handed over Couch and his mother to Mexican immigration authorities for being in the country without the proper permission so they could be returned to the US. I sure wish we had the same laws on immigration that Mexico does.

*HOT LEGAL OPINION*

I believe the Couch's played this to their advantage perfectly. After the beer pong incident, they all knew he was going to TDC for a few years. By going fugitive they made his face a household name, assuring now that he is "too famous" to be held in general population. Even in their defeat, the Couch's will still win. Pathetic.

1:48 He wasn't shown drinking in the video, so had he just reported, told his side of it, there was likely nothing the probation department could have done but add conditions. They lost big because now the mom and son both are probably facing jail given the extra notoriety. The prosecution won't be offering any deals with reputations being on the line and the opportunity to right a wrong.

Affluenza boy is a waste case.
His mom is a simpleton.
Can't we just leave them in a Mexican prison?

I'm suprised that Barry hadn't caught on to it yet because he is usually on point, but there is something fishy about this Ethan Couch thing. It could just be spotty reporting but how would the cops know that he had a going away party unless they were watching him. Also, if they were watching how did he slip away. Furthermore, why were they watching him weeks before he failed to report unless they were trying to catch him up in a violation? Lastly, I think the "going away party" might just be spin by the sheriff to stir more public anger.

Look, I think the family is trash of the highest order, and deserve what they have coming, but for cops and prosecutors to just target someone who got a favorable deal in court looks a lot like official retribution. This explains why they allowed someone to attempt to extort the family with the video and go unpunished. I don't think they would have ran unless they truly believed the deck was already stacked. They have the money to fight so running was an act of fear and desperation. Why would they let the initial trial play out but run now...makes no sense given even a spare attorney could have refuted the video being a probation violation. I doubt we ever get answers considering public sentiment regarding this family but something doesn't add up.

"Windows 10 has many unprecedented anti-user features: a remote killswitch that lets it disable your hardware; keylogging and browser-history logging that, by default, sends it all to Microsoft, and a deceptive “privacy mode” that continues to exfiltrate your data, even when you turn it on."
