Random Friday Morning Thoughts

I'm guess Bacon will like this.

  • I've already dropped and smashed a bottle of salsa in the parking lot. How's your morning?
  • It's easy to forget that Colin Kaepernick's protest occurred before the Tulsa and Charlotte incidents.
  • There is no reason the authorities in Charlotte should not release the video -- which they are refusing to do.  And if they say it could "jeopardize" any investigation, they are lying. 
  • There were far less officers in riot gear last night in Charlotte and the protests were calmer. I think that tactic works. It's just unnecessarily ramping up the tension when police show like an army out of 300
  • I still remember that well over a decade ago I went down to the Sixth Floor area on the anniversary of the JFK assassination. (Slow day for me.) Anyway, there were a ton of conspiracy nuts down there out of a total crowd of 300 to 400. Cops then showed up and suddenly started unloading riot gear. A supervisor walked up to the cops and asked, "What the heck are you doing?" And the riot gear was backed back up. No problems ensued. 
  • Extreme random thought: How much do one of those riot gear shields cost? (And what a great job to be a shield salesman. "Now, Chief, if you're in a riot and want the top of the line -- I mean top of the line -- shield, the NCC-1701 Deflector Shield is the best on the market. But I guess who wouldn't want the best if they found themselves in a riot. Am-I-right?")
  • The Taco Bell in Decatur is being renovated. How do chains handle the employees when they do this? Simply tell the workers they won't be paid for two months -which I think would cause almost all them to not come back? Or do they get paid something in hopes of having them return?
  • I didn't initially see this photo of Charles Dean Bryant being arrested by UNT police after the body of the Vandagriff girl was found. But the arrest was for a protective order violation in an unrelated case.

  • Hey, here's a tweet from KVIL asking you to predict the winner of the Bridgeport/Decatur game. (It's a bad omen that they misspelled Bridgeport.)
  • Really odd deaths in Wise County yesterday when we had two people in two different single car wrecks. Both just simply left the roadway. One happened in the afternoon and the other in the evening.

It's nice to see that you are finally facing the facts that these are in fact RIOTS and not protests.

Re fewer officers in riot gear and calmer protesters (i.e., "not rioters") - Which is the cause, and which is the effect?

Re Taco Bell renovation - I imagine that employees are given the option of working at other stores while theirs is closed. If they say no, they probably don't get paid (unless they have PTO saved.)

Nice Trek reference.

Chick-fil-A near my house recently closed for a couple of months for renovations. For any employee who wanted to keep working for them in the interim, they would reassign them to the closest locations they could to wherever the employee lived. Of course, Chick-fil-a has a pretty good reputation for dealing with its employees, but I would imagine other chains would do something similar. I would imagine that's easier than the hassle of hiring a completely new workforce after two months.

I think the demonstration was peaceful because the manpower, including the National Guard, were there and the authorities announced on TV that if anyone broke the law then they would be arrested. Placing guards in front of buildings also helped. By the way, of the arrest made during the past two nights, 75% had out of state IDs.

Real question. In the old days, only SWAT teams had the full battle regalia (knee pads, chest protector, padded battle helmet, full body kevlar, etc). When did this additional equipment become standard kit for even the smallest LEO group and their rank & file?

What do you really care? Those things are heavy. Your girly arms could not handle one. End of story.

Yesterday my hair dryer caught on fire, and I thought it was an omen of the day. Day turned out pretty good. No reason crying over spilt salsa.

The murderer could almost be a Random Guy...too bad he used those muscles to, well, murder.

Dumb assessment once again. How about you get your girly ass out there in a police uniform on the front lines. I'll bet you that you will be asking for riot gear in less than 3 minutes.

When $1 of damage occurs, or one unrelated person is injured, a protest becomes a riot and ceases to be an acceptable form of expression. End of story. Getting sick of all this bulls+%t.

If you want great comment theater then you should just have a post dedicated to Bridgeport vs. Decatur. Throw in the fact that 2 JV/Freshman games were played last night to a combined score or 87-0 (Decatur had the 87 points) and the probability that Decatur will win by 20+ tonight and one has to wonder how coaches at Bport can keep their jobs when there is a clear lack of program development.

75% of the Charlotte rioters are from elsewhere? That sounds like some conspiracy theory to me. It takes a nut job to suggest anything different from the official narrative, right Barry? The authorities wouldn't lie to us now, would they? You did suggest the Charlotte authorities are lying about the video release.

Conspiracy nuts? Kennedy assassination?

Oh Great Two-Faced Defense Lawyer, please tell us the truth. Are there conspiracies in the world or not? Inquiring minds need to know.

New depths for the RTG. She is hideous. No more pictures of Girls From The Trailer Park.

Want to talk about program development or lack of. Their freshman team (aka white team) does NOT practice. They don't have time for them! And the JV Maroon team, well their just tackling dummies for Varsity. It's a SAD, SAD situation!! Parents voice their opinions on the matter and they go on deaf ears!! School board knows, Eddie Bland knows and they just don't seem to care.

The taco bell drive thru is open during renovations. They started giving out coupons weeks ago telling people that and offering free items if you come through the drive thru.

George Soros already admitted he funded the riots in Ferguson.

Is it a stretch to think he is behind Charlotte and the others?

Dude, you need to revive with Vivarin or something.

Your material is not good 'click bait' anymore.
Especially, the RTG's.

"Why aren't I 50 points ahead, you may ask?" Hillary Clinton

Ole Barry failed to share that nugget...not surprised.

You gotta watch that video...she is a living (maybe) breathing (I think so) trainwreck.

Barry please reassure us all of your election "hot sports opinion"

KVIL tweet about the game tonight:
the actual hashtag in that post links to the Bridgeport High School Indians, in West Virginia.
Is anybody bold enough to go out on the limb with Barry and say that's also a bad omen? (sarcastica font)

There were three people in two single-car wrecks, resulting in two deaths, and the third person was injured

The other day hubby wanted tacos from Taco Bell. I went by and noticed all the remodeling. Went on to Dairy Queen for steak fingers instead. Then I noticed the Taco Bell was selling food at the drive thru window...yep they're open for drive thru only...but I wasn already at the DQ drive thru and had placed my order...bummer!

Taco Casa is far superior...should have gone there. Never pay $47 for the large steak finger basket.

11:37 imagine how far she would be behind if the media wasn't providing cover for her. Editing videos and conveniently omitting stupid statements she makes. Much like BG. He doesn't like to mention such things

People are driving off the roads or drifting across lanes and getting hurt, killed, or murdering others in increasing numbers because immediately letting some fourth-level "friend" know that you "like" their photo of a half-eaten sandwich is MUCH more important than life itself, or the lives of many others. But let's rip a new one into any law enforcement official who has had enough of these horrible death scenes and takes action to try to prevent at least one.

105,

Man, you hit the nail on the head.

I often wonder, how in the hell can even one person support Hitlery. If everything she has done, was honestly, fully reported, she would be laughed out of politics.

Because that's not how it works. The superintendent decides if he is doing a good job. Henson will have a dorm year or two and then go 3 or four deep. I hate to tell you but there wil never be another state championship won In football or basketball ever again. Wise county patents and kids are entitled.

"And if they say it could "jeopardize" any investigation, they are lying."

Says a man who has never led a criminal investigation in his life.

I want the video, too (though it will be, to the rioters, inconclusive). But you're casting aspersions pretty hot and heavy for a man who doesn't know what he's talking about.

Yeah, I said it. Not to be contrarian, nor insulting, but to point out that you are a frickin' poster boy for the Dunning-Kruger Effect, Barry Green. Given the amazing gaps in your skillset which you do admit to, I find the epistemology of what you actually think that you do know to be fascinating.

Just because you defend against criminal charges does not make you an expert of any kind in how to conduct an investigation.

I am surprised the wife in the Charlotte incident didn't say (I'm one rich #itch now ), Started to say she was a nasty talker but most talk like that ! At least she left her mother out of it !

Just because your kids on JV white don't get to practice, doesn't mean you've got to bring maroon into it. Yes, maroon gets to practice but they are not just tackling dummies for varsity. Varsity isn't any good either & they practice everyday! It's not about the opportunity to practice, it's about the level of coaching they get in practice which is NONE!!! It's been this way for the last several YEARS!! Nobody cares in this town. Henson is a god to these idiots!!! We like to lose In Bridgeport!!
