Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • This seems wrong:
  •                             
  • The "hey, now" from Trophy Club is pregnant
  • Our under indictment Texas AG Ken Paxton's criminal trial will be moved out of Collin County on a change of venue at the request of the prosecutors. Honestly, I can't remember that ever happening before. 
  • paxton change of venue
  • Our Ag Commissioner called reporters "peckerwoods."
  • The noose is tightening on Trump and the Russian connection. This will not end well.
  • Best I can tell, this is the equivalent of a portion of Stemmons Freeway in Dallas being destroyed. 
  • There were four guys with leaf blowers on the Decatur square this morning blowing dirt. Uh, what's the point? 
  • Man, NBC5 is tricking up their weather. First the Thunder Truck. Then S Band Radar. And now this. What do you say, Delkus? 
  • I have many friends who now have a parent(s) with memory loss. I think we are entering an epidemic stage. It correspondence perfectly with the Baby Boom.

No shout out to the Frogs? Dominated Georgia Tech the whole game. NIT is kind of spare these days, but still a feather in the cap of new coach Dixon.

Wonder what the ratings are for local news because it sounds as if Channel 5 is doing all sorts of gimmicks to try to draw people to watch?

Smacks a little of idiocracy to me!

Atlanta's highway collapse is actually worse for traffic there than if that happened anywhere in DFW. We just have more alternate route options than there. And that spot where it happened in Atlanta is the absolute worst spot it could have happened.

I thought the guy taped to the sign was funny. He lost a bet and he accepted the consequences. I highly doubt the guy was attached to the sign for a very long time especially since the road he was by looks really well travelled. This world is too serious!! Live a little and enjoy life!!

The noose is tightening on Trump and the Russian connection. This will not end well.

Are you kidding me? Still beating that fake news drum? There are apparently more Russian connections between the Democrats and the Russian government.

It takes an utter fool to believe the Russian nonsense. There are already enough traitors on the Progressive side to keep the justice department busy for the next four years. And you want to keep it up, snowflake? Well, go ahead. Watch your client base and income drop as well. Nobody wants a damn fool for a lawyer.

Didn't the prosecutors in the Bernie Tiede case ask for a change of venue? I think they did in the movie, anyway.

People are checking their phones to see if it's time to eat. Or walking outside, yet looking at their phones to check the temperature. If it's not on that little screen, it doesn't exist. They'll die for that screen. They'll walk into an intersection and get run over for that screen. They will kill you and your entire family in a head on collision for that screen. The will quit their jobs rather than have to stop looking at that screen.

I don't think the Ag Commissioner knows what that term really means. It means a white person from a poor, rural area. He is white and from a tiny town in a poor, rural area.

Discounting most of the automatic qualifiers from small conferences, the best 45 to 50 teams in college basketball teams play in the big tournament, but it's still pretty tough to win 5 straight games against good teams, no matter if it's the NIT.

"Peckerwood" was a euphemism my grandfather used occasionally, describing someone with a severe deficiency of common sense.

So, nobody passing by the duct-taped guy had a knife or other cutting implement? Peckerwoods!

9:06, if you have exonerating information, please contact the FBI who apparently does not have any or enough information to clear Trump and his team members.

Anonymous said...

9:06 is worried about your bottom line, Barry. Better hurry up and do what an anonymous peckerwood says on the internet, instead of doing what you've done for decades, which has led to personal and financial security and a good life at home. Because he seems to know what you need more than you do.

I'm not sure where the Trump stuff is going, but people like 9:06 seem to misunderstand the difference between officials in office speaking to foreign dignitaries, and people who are not in office, and whose staff has a history of earning millions from allies of Putin's, selling our country out ahead of the election in exchange for help winning that election, then lying about meeting with those officials, at least one of whom is a major part of the Russian espionage apparatus in the US.

Time will tell what happened. One thing we know is that the leader of the House investigation cannot be trusted. Imagine what would happen if a local cop took information from an investigation straight to a suspect so he could have advance knowledge of it before even the other cops involved in the investigation. He'd be fired on the spot.


As for the four leaf blowers blowing dirt You think they're on a government landscaping contract, and their boss is billing the county?

The NIT was kinda spare in the 1960s and nowadays it's even worse with the teams playing for 69th place. Basketball Hall of Famer David Thompson called the NIT a loser tournament in the 1970s.

In the '60s I think Austin Carr scored 50 in a NIT game the year before he went for 62 in a NCAA tourney game. I could be wrong about the 50 point NIT game. I'm not wrong about Carr's performance in the NCAA. I remember going to our church gym the afternoon following one of Carr's killer games and everybody was talking about it.

TCU does, however, excel in these next to meaningless games in all sports. Look at the Alamo Bowl. Look at the Poinsettia Bowls.

Rage, you seem to ignore Clinton's people like Clinton herself and the Podesta's that made millions from their Russian connections. I would assume that Sid Vicious Blumenthal is secretly making millions also.

Okay Congressman Nunes, the way this works is you come to the WH late at night secretly and we show this secret new info. Then you come back the next day, publicly, to "brief us" on the same new info, then hold a news conference to announce the new news revelations. It's a circle, continuing and unending.

10:36, I don't ignore that at all. I don't mind anyone, even Trump, making money with people from other countries. There is generally nothing illegal or improper about that. I believe in recent years Trump's properties have accepted about $97Million in investments from Russians. And again, there is nothing wrong with that.

But show me where, during a period of direct political conflict like we have had with Russia over Crimea, Ukraine, and Syria, where a candidate and his staff directly colluded with Russians to influence an election like we have alleged against Trump--and I won't even restrict your search to candidates with direct financial ties to that country, like Trump and his properties have.

This is a serious question. If you can show me these things I will stand corrected, because the last person to have done it appears to be Reagan with the hostages. Clinton, while making money (like Trump), did not attempt to influence an election and was not in direct communication with foreign agents who were actively doing exactly that.

Is Trump guilty? I don't know. Did he promise to remove sanctions for help getting elected? I don't know that either. But I do believe there is enough smoke for an investigation to look for the fire.

Try and step out of your hyper-partisanship for just a few minutes and give me some honest answers, if you can.

Barry, great video yesterday on the "don't eat weed" advice. Loved the local connections. Still not as great as the all-time classic YouTube video from back in 2009 with DJ Lubel, Taryn Southern, and Scott Baio. Best Scott Baio acting ever.

Truly classic. Warning for sensitive Liberally Leaners. PG-14.

" It correspondence perfectly with the Baby Boom. " What?

Most of them are parents of baby boomers. It also corresponds with extending lifespans of people exposed to aluminum cookware, microwaved plastic, increased processing of foods, more sugar in the diet, unshielded radio frequency waves from radios, televisions, microwaves and other electronics.

No love for the NIT or the CIT. The NIT helps determine the 50th best team in the U.S...the CIT helps determine the 83rd best team.

We need to get quickly to the point that it's self defense and legal to take out by any means necessary any vehicle that's being operated by someone texting. Innocent, attentive drivers need some rights, some way to protect themselves and others on the road who don't realize they are about to be killed. Thousands upon thousands being slaughtered by these people. If I'm coming at you with a baseball bat, swinging to kill, you tell me that you have no rights? Gotta just let me hit you? What's the difference when a texting driver is all over the road, barely missing vehicles and you're in a position to stop it? There's a church bus full of old folks just ahead that are living their last moments and just don't know it. I can stop it, but I'll be the one going to jail for a while if I do. We need this issue addressed hard.

Yeah that's some fancy weather equipment there, all right. And still, a massive, copious hail, rotating, ocean green lightning storm was able to hit Watauga and Keller just now (1:30 AM) with no TV alerts, no sirens at all (and they all work very well), no warnings posted by the NWS...heck, we weren't even under a severe storm watch. After the damage had been done; But all the thunder trucks, choppers, drones, weatherbots, and all the fancy new radars, and the gee whiz techno stuff, and our hordes of weather superheroes might as well have been knots on a log.
