Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • I bet Tony Romo retires. 
  • This will test your faith: 
  • As will this: 
  • Trump is really mad at conservative Republicans:
  • People are pretty quick to create a "GoFundMe" page. 
  • An American Airlines pilot died mid-flight. I guess that's why they always have two.
  • I think ESPN's SportsCenter is borderline unwatchable. Sheesh. Just show highlights and shut up. 
  • Baseball season starts next week. It will end in November. Therein lies the problem. 
  • The Dallas Morning News is getting creative with headlines and graphics:
  • If you have a jacked up truck with huge tires, you also drive fast.

If you have a jacked up truck with huge tires, you also are insecure.

Re: Sportscenter

Now that the internet exists, you can immediately look up the highlights and statistics of whatever game you want. Before, you had to watch the entire program and wait for the 2 minute recap.

ESPN the network cannot realistically compete with their own, and others, internet content. So instead, they sell "Sports Journalist Personalities" and "Sports Drama" instead of hard, sports analysis. That's why its unwatchable.

Jacked up trucks, big tires and rubber testicles hanging off the hitch; why not just get a bumper sticker that tells the world you are packing light? It would be cheaper and convey the same message.

How would that wreck test one's faith??? If your understanding or relationship with faith is that simplistic and fragile, then you probably lost it long before this wreck! If your conviction is strong it should confirm your faith!

I've been noticing a lot more jacked up trucks with large tires on the roads these days.

I guess there's way more guys with small willys than I thought.

Actually, NOTHING will test the faith of those that are "all in" with their God. Absolutely nothing. Millions of belly bloated children, starving covered in flies waiting for an agonizing death won't do it. Little babies melting in hot cars won't do it. Horrifying assaults and accidents won't do it. Kids with cancer won't do it. Nothing.

SportsCenter has been unwatchable for years.

The girl who was ridiculously praised as "doing everything right" to "survive" in the desert for a few days has a Go Fund Me page. For what? Gas money? She was a national story because she "did everything right" only after she did everything wrong. No gas, no map, no sense of direction.

And they're probably driving fast because they're too stupid to have their speedometers re-calibrated--bigger tires make for higher speed than what it reads unless it's corrected. :-)

SportsCenter is a real beating these days. If I could choose my channels ala carte, I would drop it. The Big Mouse should be very worried about their future revenue streams from ESPN in the coming years.

And talking about tired old news, Michael Irvin finds himself in a bad situation again, whether the young lady is fibbing or not. Just go home to your family, Michael.

Technically, it was the end of the flight.

Romo is dumber than I think if he walks away from a new gig. All he has to do is play one series, get hurt, and then collect his paycheck. Just like every other year.

Ask David Dewburts how picking fights with the far right turns out.

Oddly, jacked up jeeps with huge tires rarely go very fast.


"I bet Tony Romo retires."
That's a fairly safe bet. Don't most players retire at the end of their careers?


The main reason for two pilots is in case one needs to go potty mid-flight.
"I'm going number two, Number One."
"Make it so."

Cowboys sign Ware to a one day contract so he can retire as a cowboy and announce Romo's retirement same day. It will be some time of slow period in the NFL so Jerry can get all the attention. At least they give you something to look at on ESPN - noticed how all the ladies are positioned on the outside of the tables showing off their goods......

My faith does not feel tested because of 14 deaths in a vehicle crash or two children are electrocuted by downed power lines...their time had come and I rejoice in their homecoming be they old or young they are home. And I look forward to my own homecoming.

Now if you would make one comment and go away it would confirm my faith in god.

That's the problem with you libs, all you have is snark and nothing else. Your cute dissection of my comments just reinforces my point on your simplistic view of faith. I was actually hoping I would draw out a more intelligent and intellectual brand of atheist who could transcend the dead kids=no God trope.

I'm no atheist, but Bible quotes directly contrary to your claims seem to be intelligent enough.

I think that Barry offered an honest thought regarding faith and tragedy. To condemn one for admitting that tragedies might shake faith, or cause it to waiver is disingenuous, and possibly crosses over into self-righteousness. Yes, God did put Job through trials and tribulation; and if you remember, Job's faith wavered. It has been some time since my last reading, but I am fairly certain that when Job asked God about why he would do this, God asked Job if he created the Earth. Job said no, and God told him to STFU. If you don't look at tragedy and question God's "plan", then you are operating on a level at which I have yet found.

Me personally, things happen because the world is causal in nature. Good and bad things happen. I have no idea how God plays into all that and I try not to think about it. It seems like such a waste of time.

Give it up Rage, cherry picking scripture is a favorite old trick of atheists like yourself. Of course our faith will be tested, but only the weak minded will be tested by something inevitable to all of us. Try again.

Where in the Bible does it say trials and tribulations will not happen to Christians? You can't be a one foot in the water Christian. If you are, you might as well be an atheist.

If the number of people killed each day due to people driving while using their cell phones was instead happening in plane crashes, after two days all air traffic in America would be halted until the situation could be investigated. You know it would. And yet, a 747 worth of people are just being randomly slaughtered each day because people just drift over and off the road while "liking" the fifteenth selfie that a person they don't really know has posted. No matter where you are driving in this country...a pretty large percentage of those in multi-ton vehicles around you would rather kill you than miss that selfie.
