Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Orlando Scandreck is my hero
  • UT coach Tom Herman has Shake Voice during every news conference.
  • The goofy tweeting Texas Supreme Court Justice has not tweeted since being nominated for the Fifth Circuit. The fake "Aw Shucks" guy has turned into "I Got What I Wanted By Being Fake 'Aw Shucks' Guy."
  • I decided to buy yogurt at the grocery store the other day. Good grief. How can there be that many choices?
  • One of the oddest and funniest guys I follow on Twitter is Fake Bo Pelini.
  • There was a comment yesterday that all NFL players are paid millions.  That always drives me nuts. Dak Prescott's salary this year $540,000. (And there is nothing he could have done about it due to the collective bargaining agreement.)
  • He threw a tantrum again last night. Probably held his breath afterwards. He couldn't even wait until the morning.
  • Hey, it's Friday the 13th.
  • Ugh.
  • Junior Miller of The Ticket had a hot speculative opinion regarding the missing three year old Richardson child: She was sold. I wouldn't rule that out. I wouldn't rule anything out. 
  • It's always a bad sign when my friends at the courthouse tell me, "You need to chill out."
  • This is haunting. They were traveling in a private plane, but jumping from island to island. 
  • Mark Davis this morning on healthcare reform based upon Trump's (yet another) executive order: "If you are in need, you won't end up living under a bridge. You will be taken care of." Ummmm. You been under a downtown Dallas bridge lately?
  • Any update on the "home invasion" in the gated community in Fort Worth from a couple of months ago?

Dak Prescott does indeed make millions. Have you heard of endorsements? You are so damn dense for an educated man. And good for Justice Willett. Perhaps you should learn how to play the game if you ever run again.

That theory is possible. The parents definitely did something to her and it didn't involve the tree, as dad said. Now, they know that the family car was gone from 4 am to 5 am that morning. Wonder if they can access any type of GPS on it?

During Retreat, Trump asks Sean Hannity "Are they playing that for you or for me?" before turning to the audience standing at attention and saying “They’re playing that in honor of his ratings!"

What a fucking embarrassment.

I'm amazed that Orlando Scandrick loves Nipsy Hustle. He has always my favorite as well.

Nothing stops my day for 30 minutes like Nipsy Hustle on Match Game or $64,000 Pyramid.

You get a free pass to blast Trump and say whatever you want without repercussion because he is a wealthy white man.

Anytime we remotely disagreed with Obama we were automatically racist.

Point is I felt the same way about Obama as you do about Trump. For apparent reasons my voice couldn't be heard the same as yours.

Orlando Scandreck is my hero. (sic)

Of course he is. Why would we expect you to show a lick of common sense or intelligence now?

Newsflash: Championing those who've been wronged is noble. Being a permanent member of the idiot chorus is not.

Orlando Scandreck Is your hero until he stands at the next game. He will complain all he wants but he will follow instructions.

Scandrick's a thug and of course, he would be your hero. Kudos to Jerry Jones. BTW, he signs the pay checks and if the malcontents don't like the new company policy, maybe they can join the San Francisco Black Panthers on the 49'ers team.

Every NFL player may not make millions, but they're sure as heck not slaves......

Jerry Jones is now fully forgiven by this lifetime Cowboy fan for all his past transgressions.....

You're an intelligent man so I know most of your pro kneeling is nothing more than baiting the right into an argument. You know they can protest, it's the time in which they choose to protest is what bothers me.

You own a business, let's say each time a client walked in someone on your staff took a knee. You ok with that? Didn't think so

My comment was "On average NFL players are paid MILLIONS of dollars." I said nothing about the lowest paid or highest paid salaries because, forgive me, I assumed I was dealing with people who actually understood how an "average" is figured.

To be exact in 2017 "The average salary of an NFL player is only $1.9 million per year."

Source

One thing on which I do 100% agree with Barry:
"I'm convinced that I have people who comment on here who are brilliant and others who are as dumb as a box of rocks. (The box of rocks boys will never understand they are in the Box Of Rocks category.)"


People who either are too stupid to comprehend language as it's spoken/written or intentionally misconstrue what is plainly spoken/written to build strawmen drive me completely around the bend. Please make note, I said nothing about people who are ignorant or are non-native speakers of the language being spoken/written.

Nobody lives under a bridge because of insurance company subsidies (or lack of them). Dallas keeps trying to clear out the tent cities -- but those people don't really want anything different, despite all the organizations and money thrown at them. Dallas homeless evidently now prefer to sleep on the bridges. Rebecca Lopez looks like she's one of them these days.

@8:55 What audience are you looking at? They were standing anyway, no one is at attention or facing towards the post flag. They were inside a hanger. You stop and go to (Parade Rest, then Attention), facing the music or the flag is the location is known, when you are OUTSIDE.

you realize the CBA was collectively bargained by Dak's union, right? Pay scale was just put in the last CBA. They didn't have to agree to it. Did you stand up for the owners when they had to give 1st round picks huge guaranteed money, and said player was a bust?

"If you are in need, you won't end up living under a bridge. You will be taken care of."

Unless you choose to live under a bridge, which most of them do because they don't want to stay in shelters and have to play by the rules.

Skippy, you been under a Dallas bridge lately?

Sam Brows said...

Scandrick's line was funny because it was a backhanded way of critiquing Jones without actually violating any of the rules the old man laid down in the team meeting, and i'm sure it chapped Jerry to no end. But to call that guy a hero...boy that's a stretch.

And I have to take exception to the notion that there was nothing Dak could have done to increase his pay. As much as everyone understands the Cowboys got a heckofa player in him in the 4th round, he was available in the 4th round instead of having gone early in the 2nd round, where his salary this year would probably be close to double what he's making...wait for it...because he was popped for a DWI just before the draft, and as a result, he fell on many draft boards, and was removed entirely from others. he could have not gotten drunk and climbed behind the wheel, and that is something he was entirely in control of.

As for the draft being something that reminds anyone of slavery...all they have to do to abolish it is have the will to sit out an entire season. There pretty much isn't anything the NFL owners wouldn't give up to get real players back on the field after a season of no, or worse yet, crummy, product to sell to advertisers. But they won't do that because in many cases, NFL players have been treated as special, "the rules don't apply to you" guys for their whole lives because of their football ability and as a result, don't have the education or skills to find other work for a year. That's on them, not the owners.

It does amaze me that the evolution of news papers have turned into all out one sided political news. It has gradually evolved over the years to to the point that they don't even try to hide it....it's full blown from one sided political perspective.

90% of the stories on CNN about politics are a positive spin on liberals and negative spin on conservatives. So to get the other side you go to Fox News and it's generally the opposite. There is no truth anymore.

This slavery deal drives me crazy ! They were slaves where they were loaded at ! Chiefs owned them there and sold them ! The average person has no idea what a good healthy slave brought on the market ! Wasn't morally right at all but that was the way it worked ! The average person in that time did not make enough money in ten years to buy one ! Hence the myth about killing them being common to kill one is wrong ! Where they came from and the life they lived was worse than where they went when they were sold . They were definitely abused but they were not killed and eaten if they were useless ! Go over there today and see how they live !The slaves that were brought here and survived decendents live a much better life ! I have many friends of every race including some born in Africa . Have no use for these whiners and veterans that live in these camps ! Get off your ass and go to work ! We as Americans have no problem buying from countries that still have slaves !
