Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts


  • I can't believe I mentioned the name Noah and didn't post of picture to go along with it. I apologize.
  • Have you watched the movie, "Inside Out"? You should, it's entertaining and a little insightful.
  • I got a bug bite on my leg that I'm a little worried about. As a person that spends a lot of time outdoors, I know odd when I see it.
  • Hurst didn't have a very good evening. First they had a strong storm and then there was a double shooting.
  • I like the term "fake outrage" when referring to LT. Gov. Dan Patrick.
  • Officer Pearce goes home after 2 months in the hospital. Two Months. 
  • Barry update: He's doing really good. It's just about time to hand this thing back to him. 
  • Texas Rangers had a rain delay between the second and third innings. I love a good rain delay that brings out the tarp. 
  • Oh my! An inmate died in custody of the jail. From the Update:
  • INMATE DIES AT COUNTY JAIL – A Chico man died at the Wise County Jail Saturday night. Sheriff Lane Akin said Jeremiah Martinez, 35, was arrested Saturday evening for public intoxication after a citizen called to report Martinez was seen acting strangely on County Road 1540 near Chico. A deputy responded and asked for Wise County EMS to evaluate Martinez. Akin said Martinez was belligerent and uncooperative, but he was finally cleared to be taken to jail. Once at the jail, Martinez continued to be uncooperative. He was placed in a holding cell and placed on a 10-minute watch rotation. About an hour later, Martinez was found unresponsive in his cell. Medics were called out again but were unable to revive Martinez. His body was sent to the Dallas County Medical Examiner for an autopsy and toxicology reports. Akin said Martinez did admit to a deputy that he had ingested methamphetamine. Read more in the midweek Wise County Messenger.

OMG!!! Now that's what I'm talking about. A man to look at. Stay with us Mrs LL. Don't leave. Hey can you start your own blog. Us women don't like to look at women everyday.

Actually, 99.99 percent of Hurst is just fine. Basically, nothing happened. The media loves to pick up on a few old, leafy trees with shallow root systems that catch a big gust and blow over. The cars get damaged because the garages are used as storage for crap instead of being clear for pulling a car in.

After the guy in Chico admitted to a deputy that he had swallowed meth, why didn't they take him to the hospital immediately? Just because he is a suspected criminal or is intoxicated does not mean his life does not matter. He might still be alive today if they had.

Dan Patrick is nothing but a big showboat. My former boss, who is a big DWI lawyer in the area, testified in Austin in front of him. He verbally attacked her and it was nothing but to get some soundbites.

New theory on Midlothian Murder - maybe the killer copied the movie 'Presumed Innocent' and the hammer with blood on it will end up in a tool box owned by the cheating husband.

I too spend a considerable amount of time outdoors andhave a small squeeze bottle of ammonia.If I get a bite I immediately spray it down and rub it in to the bite, this has worked for scorpions and brown recluse injuries.
However not being a physician it's what I do and YMMV.

Dan Patrick doesn't seem outraged to me. He merely said that parents should be outraged over Fort Worth ISD's restroom policies and that the superintendent should resign.

The screwball protestors and media are the outraged ones. They are in a total lather and need to calm down from the hissy fit they are throwing.

Reporters like the Startlegram's Dud Kennedy are telling Patrick to stay out of Fort Worth's business. FW ISD gets 33% percent of their funding from the state. Fort Worth and their public schools are Dan Patrick's business.

Kat, thanks for stepping in...you've done great. Glad Barry is starting to feel better.
8:40 despite the fact that the Decedent is guaranteed free health care whether he had health insurance or not, it isn't prudent for the PD to be responsible for hauling someone to the ER for a stomach pumping every time they admit they're high or drunk (i'm adding drunk in here because the logic is the same...just because someone admits to drinking, the officer has no idea how much they've had, so in some hyper theoretical hypothetical they COULD have ingested a toxic amount of hooch). someone, say with Ebola, wouldn't be able to get into a hospital on a Saturday night if we hung that responsibility on the PD. Sadly, the man is dead now, but the cause of that death has nothing to do with what the PD did or did not do.

Why should the police take the man to the hospital? He's a known meth user. Why should swallowing it be any different than another form of consumption? I don't think that they were looking at him as a low-life, as implied by one comment. I wouldn't think that it would matter because he's a user; hence his body is acclimated to the drug.

Mrs. LL, such a nice view today! THANK YOU and the ladies here would like to keep you! Don't rush off so fast!!! PLEASE! We want Barry to recover fully so a little more time "off" should be considered!!!

See a doc about that bug bite. Don't take unnecessary chances!

And to 8:40...you were not at the scene and are playing Judge and Jury determining what the deputy should have done. The S.O. has a policy in place for such things, and the deputy did have the medics examine the suspect (if there is blame to be placed,would it not fall to them first?) before taking him to jail where he was put on a 10 minute watch. EMS cleared him. Don't spout off unless you know all the facts. That is what most of America is doing now, judging law enforcement when they don't have all the facts. Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda! Have you ever lived a day in a law enforcement uniform? I did not think so! Just sayin'.

Hey 10:22;

What ever happened to the Republican call for LOCAL CONTROL!!!! When it's the Feds, it's all about LOCAL CONTROL!!! Ft. Worth ISD can handle their own school w/o an anti education anal sphincter muscle like Patrick calling the media and acting like the buffoon he is.

I wish the DISD school board would make their views public on transgender restrooms. It just a matter of time before some FREAK tries to take a peek in my daughters restroom or locker room.

I have to rant. I live in Paradise. My sons have played baseball here for awhile now. I learned today that our new "Athletic Director" or the next savior has let our head baseball coach go because he refused to lift his players on game day. What is this idiot thinking? The only thing our boys have success in is baseball.

Anonymous said...

10:22, the policy isn't new. It's been in place since 2011. All the FW Superintendent did was issue guidelines on how to handle a situation. Patrick is just stirring the pot to generate publicity for himself and Tea Partiers.

Every time? No. When they're acting erratic and swallowed drugs not want to be swallowed? Yeah, they should have taken him in.

By providing a sense of caring to 1% of the tyranny's, the ISD created uncomforted for the remaining 99%, who now have to hold there restroom breaks until the get home. Wow! Look at all the good these people are doing.

To 10:51:

So whats new? The alVOID school bu**h#ads, er, board just made sure that when their two time state champ girls coach got a chance to leave, there would not be any question he would be gone. They're so jealous of his success w/ the MS that the Builder and the oil field drunk on the board and their handler Hamilton screwed the entire girls program for the foreseeable future. From now on they will be as bad as the boys. So what's next? A RETREAD BOYS coach (one who quit the school last time because he couldn't handle a strong academic program) w/ the third new system in four years. Tack on to that their meddling caused the girls softball coach to quit teaching all together, and now the baseball coach and the last faculty member with a masters degree are leaving, guess how long it will take for our place to go in the crapper. And Hamilton just got his 4th puppet on the board so from now on it be football, football, football (except where his daughter is concerned). If you seek an education for your children, keep going when you get to alVOID!!!

Oh man Rage, was your comment timely! You are so funny! Say, did you ever get that baseball bat out of your rectum?

What does that mean? He refused to lift his players? Please explain,(I'm not being sarcastic, I really don't understand what you mean by that)

And 9:39 "However not being a physician it's what I do and YMMV."
What does "YMMV" mean? I'm sure I will have a "duh" moment once I find out. LOL

Always take someone to the ER that swallows meth, whether it's your baby or an addict.

Good comment, Rage. Also, I never understood why we menfolk had to find a tree or mid-size shrub to pee behind,while the womenfolk just needed a patch of clear ground to contribute to the watershed. Where is the equity in that?

I had no idea that so many little kids were transgendered and that it's such a huge issue at schools. Had no idea they even knew about genders. How in the heck can they have transgender surgeries before they even have developed parts? And what kind of sicko doctor is going to do it?

What 10:51 means is, he didn't want his players lifting weights on game day. I don't know if that is true, but that is what is being said.

What I do know is, the guy is a great coach and it is a shame that he is leaving.

Anonymous said...

1:15, you obviously have no idea what the FW Superintendent guidelines are. You are just guided by fear and hyperbole that Dan Patrick and his like have stirred up. If you had 1/2 a clue you'd know there will not be transgender in the bathroom at the same time as others. They get a single stall or they get to go when the bathroom is empty.

We are no longer the home of the brave. We're the home of the fear monger and the land of the lemmings.

Questions or assuming always arise when reporters don't get the whole story. I had no idea a medic checked the meth guy out and was deemed okay to sober up at the jail. I was not judging anyone. Thanks for the info.

What a win win deal. Like a fireman sneaking out and setting things on fire, rushing back to the fire house, and waiting for the alarm to go put out the fire. What a hero!!!

He was placed in a holding cell and placed on a 10-minute watch rotation. About an hour later, Martinez was found unresponsive in his cell. AM I reading this wrong? He was to be checked on every ten minutes, and they found him after an hour? Or were they checking on him every ten minutes for an hour before they found him unresponsive?
