Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • I don't know if the story told to WFAA by the girlfriend of Johnny Football is true but, regardless, he is done. The guy is a moron. When he made the "money sign" after being drafted (late) in the first round should of told us everything.
  • Johnny's ordeal started at Hotel ZaZa in Uptown. I was in that place once and saw a lady with a high tone purse that looked like a Yorkie.  I've never been back. 
  • Recent Denton County book in photos of people who almost qualify as Random Thought Girls: One. Two
  • Crystal City, Texas: "A grand jury indictment alleges City Manager and City Attorney William James Jonas III; Mayor Ricardo Lopez; Mayor Pro-Tem Rogelio Mata; Councilman Roel Mata and former Councilman Gilbert Urrabazo accepted more than $12,000 in bribes from a contractor wanting to do business with the city." Government vs. Government = Your Tax Dollars at work. 
  • Breaking Unemployment Rate News: It is now down to 4.9%. (Wordkyle in 3 . . . 2. . . 1)
  • The water is now safe to drink in the North Fort Worth / Haslet area? How does it go from dangerous to safe within 24 hours? Considering the water in pipelines, that is not possible.
  • The largest cross in the history of ever is about to be built in the state of Texas. 
  • I'm not saying it's my birthday (I almost forgot) but one of my photoshop friends reminded me of it with this today:
  • Comedic genius, sir. 
  • A massive, and I do mean massive, crane collapsed in NYC this morning.
  • Latest commercial scam: "You're not overweight. It's just water based bloating."
  • I mention this from time to time: Not too long ago the Messenger's Update would (legally) print who was admitted to the local hospital. That seems so insane now. But there was more than one occasion where I saw a name and picked up the phone to make sure someone was OK.
  • "He is a Muslim" - WBAP's Hal Jay yesterday talking about the President. Even goofy sidekick Brian Estridge said, "You can't say that." Jay's response: "I just did."

I really never considered purse fashion in my evaluation of an establishment but then again I'm not a liberal.

Almost every draft pick does something goofy when signed. It was the fact that he was a rich white kid is why it stood out. That being said, I don't think Johnny will see his 30th Bday.

The water didn't go from unsafe to safe, it was always safe. It went from "we're not sure it's safe" to "OK, we've tested it and confirmed it's safe."

Ironic that the types of SCOTUS justices that Cruz would support/appoint -- Constitutional originalists -- would, if they were ideologically honest, likely not find him to be qualified to be president.

It was nice when we didn't have to be so careful about using someone's name as a patient in the hospital. The society in which we live is a product of our continued devolving to a beast.

Why can't Hal Jay say that? Obammy admitted he was a Muslim.

CNBC said it clearly: "The declining unemployment rate has been as much a function of people leaving the workforce as it has been increasing employment." You give Obama credit for a quirk in the formula that has consistently made his unemployment rate look better than it was. On employment, Obama has failed his way to Jimmy Carter levels. Yay for your team!

The NFL is similar to many non-sports professions. They're only interested in whether you are qualified for the job. Being an idiot after-hours isn't a concern until it affects your job performance. Consequently, there are plenty of idiots in pro sports, the same way there are idiots in other professions. The money sign was probably the least significant indication of his true character.
If Jerry picks up Manziel, it won't be because of his dazzling QB skills - he has shown almost none as a pro. It'll be for the spectacle. As the Musers pointed out, Jerry is one more questionable decision short of going full-on Al Davis

You're still drunk, Barry. Go back to bed. Even if "should have" was used correctly, that sentence is still a mess.

Jimmy Carter Levels. If, I remember correctly, Carter was the President back in 2008 who was guiding the ship when the US got into the financial jam that almost caused another world wide depression. IF i remember correctly it was Carter that got us involved in two land Wars in the Mid East. Good point.

Not hard to figure out the unemployment rate. Just takes a little effort if you really want to see what is happening.

And yet Americans are actually trickling out of work at an alarming rate. The country's labor force participation rate – which measures the share of Americans at least 16 years old who are either employed or actively looking for work – dipped last month to a 38-year low, clocking in at an underwhelming 62.6 percent.

Unemployed individuals who haven't actively looked for a job in the last four weeks, for any number of reasons, actually slip away from the Labor Department's unemployment calculations. So although the unemployment rate ticked down to a seven-year low of 5.3 percent in June, that number didn't do justice to the 640,000 individuals who exited the labor market last month and the nearly 94 million people who were neither employed nor looking for work.

Where exactly did you get that information?

wordkyle said...

1032 - There's your problem. You don't remember Carter's Labor Force Participation Rate levels. During his time in office Obama has had a bumper crop of that group known as "discouraged workers." Under Obama, Americans have suffered what you might call a "crisis of confidence." A malaise, if you will.

This unemployment crap really is amazing.

During W. Bush's reign, When he would get 250,000 jobs created in a quarter, the LSM would SCREAM that we needed at least that much to keep up with population increases.

Now, Obama gets 151,000, millions have given up looking for work, and BG orgasms.

You just cannot make this stuff up.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, Wordkyle, but wasn't Carter's time in office marred by the Iran hostage crisis (but Iran returned our service members the same day under Obama); a gas embargo by OPEC (but the US is now a net exporter of oil under Obama); crashing stock market (stock market still near record highs under Obama); inflation (not under Obama), etc?

I realize it's your nature not to like a black man in office, but can you try to be a little honest about your prejudices?

The only time Wordkyle cares about unemployment is when Obama is in office. Otherwise, he's fine with outsourcing jobs left and right, and wouldn't care about employment numbers.

Barry, you left out something important about unemployment! The U6 unemployment rate is STILL 9,9%!

I know you would want to tout that impressive economic fact on your fine fine blog site there. I am sure you and Obama are so proud.

Surely you will have the economic public confidence polls on your blog tomorrow, right? Maybe the food stamp statistics? How about the median family income? Think that will make the blog?

Surely you would never cherry pick meaningless econ stats. I know you would not do that.

No thanks needed. Glad to help.
