Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • I always thought it was true, but yesterday I learned that this blog can kill a political campaign if the readers want it to happen. (Maybe I possess those elusive weapons of mass destruction.)
  • I meant to mention yesterday the Arizona Diamondback signing pitcher Zack Greinke to a 6 year and $206,500,000 contract.  That's  over $34 million a year. If he falls down the stairs this morning and blows out his shoulder, he still gets the money.

  • Baylor's bowl game will be in Orlando. Since the announcement, this song has been stuck in my head (despite the fact that Disney Land is actually in California.)
  • In a campaign statement, Donald Trump called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on". He got a standing ovation. If he wins the GOP nomination, you will see this biggest beat down since Reagan won 44 of the states in 1980. And Trump wouldn't be on the winning side.

Buddy, walk away. Do the right thing. After all, you are a Protector of Children. This is all about you
  • I'm beginning to realize most people have never seen me pissed off before. Honestly, it rarely happens. But when it happens ..... Oh, my.
